Newt said he would be ok with Obama's use of a teleprompter during the debates.
Obama is a duffer.
Newt’s a good sport...
I’d be ok with one 2 minute duel.
No way that happens. No way Zero agrees to go that long without a smoke.
Yes. I’m sure Gingrich would be fine with Obama and his teleprompters.
That was a good line. Will hand him that. I hope Obama got pissed off about it.
It’s not going to happen. I agree that Newt will be good against Obama but he knows that these lincoln-douglas debates are not going to happen
Smart use of his speech time...pre-empting Obama’s SOTU and setting his case before the public. It was subdued and simple. This is what a politician does. He leads.
Brit Hume is tying hs best to kill Newt.
Wonder if Obama will sleep in a fetal position tonight, if he can sleep.
I think Obama will be practicing his duck and cover drills at the White House during the debate times...
Obama won’t last past three minutes......... That’s what Larry said.
Brit sure is. His parting shot was that no one will want to run with ‘this man’....
Meanwhile, back in the white house, Obama tells Valerie Jarrett “Quick, get me some dark pants stat, I am gonna need them for when Newt makes me crap my pants”
Can Obama wear his bicycle helmet?
Nice of Brit to throw a turd in the celebration punch bowl. I could care less about the establishment and will never send them another penny until the conservatives swarm the castle.
Fat chance. If obozo’s handlers ever let him talk about his agenda for 3 hours he would probably have to leave the country. Never mind win reelection.
He should also challenge him to an arm-wrestling contest
...and a pitching contest
...and a contest to see who can name the most states (Obama would win that one.)
...and a contest to see who can correctly name the most states (Newt would win that one.)
Yep! Just saw that segment! It was Disgusting!
If Newt wants to debate Obama in Lincoln/Douglas style debates, he better make an Obama cardboard cut out.
Oh, he’ll get smoked, all right.
Newt will have to challenge 0bama’s ego and narcissistic nature so he overrules his campaign advisors. His advisors won’t agree to that many debates otherwise.
Seriously...what in the hell is going on over at Fox? Tons of snide remarks about Newt all night and really the last 2 months have just been a bash fest on the guy.
I expect better from Brit.
By the way, I can see one way Obama can handle this pledge. I'll be some of you can too.
I look for the Kenyan to do the “historic” thing by refusing to do any debates.
I'm sick it.
I cannot fathom how utterly terrified the bisexual Muslim must feel, pondering the possibility of publically debating Obama even for 5 minutes, to say nothing of 3 hours.
He must be crying and in an utter state of panic.
That’s like sending a Cessna 150 up against an F-22 —INSTANT FIREBALL.
3-Hr debates are not happening, Newt....you know this.
The AnnointedIdiot would not be able to stand an hour...no biggie. =.=
The teleprompters are already rigged with nicotine vaporizers. That’s why he holds his head back...
“Its not going to happen.”
Well then, I hope Speaker Gingrich is committed to his promise to follow Obama around and rebut every speech he makes!
Yes, but for the debates not to happen, Zero has to decline and lose face.
Just saw Britt saying how electing Newt will cause the GOP to lose the house. Excuse me.....say what??!!?
I used to love Britt too, but now I’m very disappointed with him as well as Fox News in general.
Mrs. Prince of Space
It will be Newtzilla vs Bambi
This would be awesome but if Newt is the nominee, Obama agrees to no more than two debates, one hosted by MSNBC and one hosted by CSPAN.
I cannot stop laughing at that one!
Would like to see it, but Newt would be doing well to get Obama in a couple of two hour debates with Obama’s MSM press agents acting as ‘moderators’.
No way that poser would agree to seven three hour debates.
Hume doesn’t think Gingrich has not the ability to change minds. All a candidate has to do is honestly expose (since the main stream media did not) and vett Obama consistently and in a comprehensive way during the general election, and it would be over for Obama. It’s not hard to do for a candidate like Newt Gingrich. Hume is blind.
What is with Brit today?
He seems like a different person.
Usually he exudes a very aura of subdued wisdom.
He’s coming across as a partisan, and a rather worried one at that.
Newt was an “Informative Action” graduate; the antithesis of Obama.
Newt doesn’t need seven debates, and he knows Omuslim won’t agree to that. All Newt needs is a couple of debates to tear the Muslim/Marxist a new one.
Newt was able to win the SC debate in the first 5 minutes!
I’d actually like to see what names he comes up with for “57 states with one to go”.....
I saw and heard Brit’s parting shot from 10 minutes or so ago.
It was not pretty.
It was personal.
You may or may not know the Beltway insider background for this blatant animosity for Newt Gingrich, but there’s a current thread on FR from Gawker website which details it in all its sorry ambiguity. I don’t believe a word of it.
They spend month after month bashing Newt and then say, Gee, he shouldn’t be the nominee, his negatives are too high! I really see no difference at all between Fox and any of the other “news” channels anymore.
Brit Hume is tying hs best to kill Newt.”
First time I had tuned into FOX in over two weeks and it, unfortunately, was just at the time Hume was praising Romney as the only consistently strong finisher thus far. Hume is just one of the reasons I won’t make the mistake of turning them on again until maybe December.
Won’t happen and in fact I think conservatives are going to be disappointed with the sanitized debates the America public will see. All the questions will be screened and moderators will be Obambi sycophants - the Gingrich handlers will have him on a short leash. Romney of course will be polite and look wooden.
