Newt took 1st question about ex-wife, wrapped question around John King’s neck, and tightened
Legal Insurrection ^ | 1/19/2012 | William Jacobson

Posted on 01/19/2012 6:45:21 PM PST by vbmoneyspender

John King started the night with a question about Newt’s ex-wife’s interview in which she alleged Newt sought an “open marriage.” Newt answered the question eventually with a denial, but used the oppoturnity to give King a smackdown which will be remembered for a long time.

I saw that. That story is not going to get legs.

Does anyone know where I can watch the whole thing? I could not find it on youtube or anywhere else.

It has to happen — by the general campaign time, this won’t be on the table any longer, and any attempt by Zero/Soros’ smear machine to use it will fail, or not occur at all. Thanks vbmoneyspender.

Newt did a good job of distracting — but he does have a character problem here. Let’s not pretend otherwise. He says he has changed.

I personally didn’t think the question was out of line mainly because it was the pink elephant in the room and it was better for Newt to have the opportunity to address it at the beginning of the debate.

Newt obviously expected the question and he hit it out of the park.

That was sheer amazing... shows what can happen when a candidate can think on his feet (along with pre-think time and prep).

That was NOT a touchdown, it was 10 consecutive years of Superbowl Clobbering wins.

That was a quadrupal Lutz.

That was not a home run, it was a three balls two strikes two outs Grand Slam out-of-the-park walk off 9th inning 7th game World Series BLAST.

It may be worth supporting Newt just to see him b-slap these media whores around. Will he do it to Obamammy if he has the chance, or Biden? That would be great. I love the reaction of the presstitutes when someone on our side dishes their crap right back to them. They get this deer-in-the-headlights look and start spluttering and stammering, “But...but...but...I'm just a reporter, it's these other guys who broke the story, don't you know who I am,...whine, whine, whine”. Its like they can't believe that a conservative would actually stand up and challenge them, like we don't know our place, we should lie down and let them walk all over us, how dare we hit back?!

The question itself was not out of line. Making it the very first question, something that might set the tone for the whole debate, was. This was a debate of presidential candidates. The first question should be something that is relevant to everybody inside and outside the debate room, e.g., the economy, national defense, and so on. Not what an ex-wife said about her marriage.

Obama just called his people to send more money to Romney’s campaign because he don’t want to mess with Newt. I think I just heard Obama’s rectum pucker.

Maybe Newt meant an open door marriage...where he opened the door and ran away as fast as he could.

Amen! Once again, Newt's smack down of the MSM was G-L-O-R-I-O-U-S!!

It typically takes about 2 hours (sometimes a little longer), AFTER (so about 2 hours from now), for the videos to start popping up, because they have to be processed,a nd then uploaded. The site below always has the full videos, generally within hours of them becoming available. Right now it says, “Live Stream” but it will switch to “Watch Entire Video” soon. Take care.

“but he does have a character problem here. Let’s not pretend otherwise.”

I don’t think most people are pretending otherwise. I think most people recognize that he has the guts and the political savvy to be able to change the narrative in the political arena and put the left and the media on the defense. This is crucial and a very long in coming. Reagan was able to do it, which is why the left hated him so much. This is war, literally war for the heart and soul, and possibly the survival of our country. I am very much warming to Newt, because irrespective of his private life he is speaking the truth in the public arena.

We live in a society in which multiple former governors are in or were in prison, another recent governor was just found to have fathered a child with his housekeeper, a siting President had oral sex with an intern in the White House, a Vice-Presendential candidate who almost got elected is now awaiting trial for funneling campaign funds to hide his mistress and their child, and so on and so on. That’s not to mention all the horrible things that are happening in sports and the entertainment industry.

All of that doesn’t excuse Newt, but irrespective of whether one is a Christian, has other beliefs, or is an agnostic or atheist, each of us has to decide whether a person can change and whether or not we can forgive them. I’m taking him at his word, and I’m choosing to not judge. I hope people will afford me the same.

I am not a Newt guy ( if he is left standing , of course he gets my vote ) i thought this ABC smear was tawdry and lazy. Newt handled it perfectly and the other guys avoided the cheap shots . Romney was right , anyone on that stage would be a better President than Princess O.

I loved this quote from an article interviewing a couple of seeasoned citizens in SC...

“Romney’s a businessman, not a fighter,” Joseph finally said. “But Gingrich will tear Obama’s butt up. That’s the bottom line.”

Romney couldn’t answer when he’ll release taxes, even when reminded his father released 12 years of records when running for office. Santorum (a nice guy) was complantive like he expected a fair world, Newt brawled right out of the gate, and to me that is what will be needed to unseat the manchild king occupying the WH. jus sayin’
