Here it for those who missed it last night. Newt gave the best possible answer. Obama knows zero American history except what he got off his favorite leftist professors at Harvard and Columbia. While Newt has taught American history and loves the American history of an exceptional nation

She has lost so much weight she’s looking awfully bad. I don’t think she’s on meth, but she is getting that ‘meth ugly’ look. Maybe she’s just getting old really fast.

She's 41, and is at the age where she has to do extreme exercise in order to maintain her former shape.

Well MK served up a question based on what OTHERS had said and it was like a giant softball tossed at a MLB batter.

Newt hit that puppy out of the park and I didn’t take it as Newt vs MK more like he was served up his favorite pitch where he excels, American history.

I want to know what makes everyone think that there will be a debate with Obama...there is no guarantee that he will do so, and if he does, it will be set up so that there can be no more than a 30 second answer, so he can shout out a catch phrase.

How can anyone despute the mans knowledge of the issues, history of the issues in an American history context, a plan to deal with these issues today and solutions. The man is far ahead of the rest hands down. He will bring zero to the center of the ring and with respect to the title of the office will go after the man hiding behind the curtain. If he is the nominee Zero better start cracking those books on American history

Well, newt can set up a cardboard dummy across the table, and ask questions, then answer them, or even use a moderator, such as Rush to ask the questions.

Obama will soon be begging to "refute" the answers and the subsequent impuning his failed policies that got us to the present state.

Fox is being hijacked by libs and moderates. Look no further than Chris Wallace and Whorealdo. Bill O. will not take strong stands on topics that are controversial. Why don’t these FOX talk shows take on the corruption recently exposed by Abramoff and Schweitzer on the lobbyists control of our ‘leaders’, insider trading, and crony capitalism. Hannity sits there and says he is shocked about the corruption and then there is no followup. Congress views the middle class as their cash cow.

I remember Newt saying that Lincoln suggested one on one debates with his opponent who refused so he followed him around from state to state a gave a rebutal to every speech his opponenet made until he agreed to these debates. Hope Newt will follow through with this coward.

You wrote: “Fox is being hijacked by libs and moderates.”

I believe you are correct. The once conservative news channel is being pressured, I believe, by the powers that be to “tone the conservatism down.”

Fox News and Fox News Business are the only channels I keep tuned to during the time I’m on the computer. I have been disappointed in Fox News’ detour to the Left in recent months, if not the past year or so.

Additionally, I thought Megyn Kelly had a brain at one time.... not so sure now.

On Hannity’s radio program he said he would do just that. It would be epic. 0bama would be on the defensive at every stop, looking over his shoulder, and is so thin skinned that he would make some serious strategy mistakes due to the pressure.

Educational institution “upgrades” can’t save the 0 now. His life is sealed for a damn good reason - good for him that is.

“How would the MSM spin that?”

The MSM would ask Newt some obscure question, get the answer, and ask The Won his current golf handicap.

Thank you; Megan. You have loosed the beast, and he has chomped upon your arse.

They must have cut that part out of the video. Pity.

Newtie is just too much! Saying he would dog Obama campaign appearances until Jug Ears agrees to a series of Lincoln-Douglas style debates. Where Newt will then proceed to deconstruct Bammy

It looks like she and Sheppard Smith are both trying to achieve the Andrea Mitchell look.

It looks a bit anorexic to me.

Gread YouTube vid ... one to keep. I’d like to see Newt win the nomination just to watch him take on Obama in the debates ... it would be like Bill Ayers and Thomas Jefferson debating ... would be a blast to watch.

Thank you for posting this.

NEwt gave a stunningly scholarly and complete answer—without a teleprompter. that was impressive. The topics he expounded upon are not even familiar to most history professors.

And yes, Megyn had pretty eyelashes on last night.I did not like it when she repeated the “dangerous, radical” etc. criticisms about Newt. She said it once—he dispensed with it—it’s over.

That was the highlight of the entire debate. It doesn’t get much better than that. I saved that video so I can watch it daily to remind me why I will support Newt.

"After watching the exchange, it would seem as though the headline has the names in the wrong order."

I don't see that at all.

I will have to say, though, that Megyn asked a question with the intention of solicitating an answer. She is a smart lawyer and she doesn't ask a question to which she does not already know the answer. She certainly is not so dumb as to think she is going to catch Newt off guard or set him straight.

"Go, Newt!! Great job!! Go get ‘em, tiger!!"

There was not another person on that stage that could have answered Megyn's questions the way Newt did. Not one. Not even close.

Bachmann, as much as I like her in the House, would have thought of a few words before she fell back to her canned "consistent constitutional conservative" talking point.

Perry would have crapped his pants tring to come up with something to say.

Mitt would have tap danced until the cows came home, lied if he had to, then smiled dashingly as though he had done something wonderful.

Priceless. Especially the final look on Megyn's face as she started to call on Bachmann.

Has Newt weighed in on whether Obama's father's foreign citizenship makes Obama ineligible to be president?

Megyn did lose a bit too much weight after the last baby, but there is no way you can stretch the truth far enough to speak Megyn Kelly and ugly in the same sentence. She’s 41 years old with a toddler, an infant, and a high pressure job. She ain’t gonna look 25 forever.

Noot is 100% correct on this.

He is 100% wrong on socialism and global warming, and those are of more concern.

She should not maintain her former shape; she should gain 40 quick pounds, and become a pretty woman.

I suppose it depends on how you view “lecture” in this context. In my view, it’s negative. She was attempting to lecture him, specifically when she called Jefferson’s decision controversial. I don’t believe she expected his reply.

Has Megyn become a bit more liberal since returning from maternity leave?
