Posted on 09/02/2012 9:06:52 PM PDT by cdchik123
Im frankly, fed up, with the one-sided bias, a frustrated Newt Gingrich asserted on Sundays Meet the Press, citing two blatant examples. First: Where is the outrage over overt, deliberate racism in Vice President Joe Biden telling a black audience if the Republicans win you will be in chains?
Second, President Obama voted three times to protect the right of doctors to kill babies who came out of abortion still alive. That plank says tax-paid abortion at any moment, meaning partial birth abortion -- thats a 20 percent issue, a position which Democrats couldnt defend...for a day if it was made clear and as vivid as all the effort is made to paint Republicans.
Gingrich charged: If the news media spent as much time on the extremism of the Democrats as they spend trying to attack us, they would not be able to adopt that plank this week. Another guest panelist, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, declared Im a Planned Parenthood Democrat on the issue of choice, but when Gingrich challenged him to defend the Democratic Party platform support for taxpayer funding of late-term and partial-birth abortion, Friedman called it a defensible position, then suddenly decided Im here as a journalist, Ill let the Democratic Party defend it.
Seconds earlier during the roundtable, NBC News eminence Tom Brokaw maintained Republican opposition to abortion is antithetical to full rights for women. I think this is the century of women, he asserted before fretting there is even among some Republican women out there the view that the party doesnt quite buy into that yet. He contended the social issues are very important to women. Its their bodies, their lives, they feel that its not entirely embraced by the Republican Party. Thats my own judgment.
From the September 2 Meet the Press:

Stopped reading right there.
No kidding......NO GOOD can come out of 50 MILLION DEAD BABIES, KILLED at the hands of their MOTHERS.
He has more values than you have abilities to make relevant statements.
Unfortunately in America you do have the right to kill the baby.
I totally disagree. There is no such right of taking someone else’s life.
Can a woman get an abortion legally in America today?
Dream for a moment and picture him as White House Press Secretary next term. I know it would be beneath him but wouldn’t he be stellar in that capacity? :)
“legal” and right are two very different things.
I never said it was “right”, I said it was a right and it is.
You don’t know conservatism from liberalism - and your comment just proved it. You are type that should be barred from voting. You can’t even stay focused on what the article is about! America is being destroyed because of such ignorance - consider yourself responsible.
Exactly. The Democrats support of abortion and contraception is just like a man saying, “Hey baby, you gotta give me what I want. It will be alright and if it doesn’t work out, there is still a way around the problems.” I can’t believe for the life of me why women don’t stand up and say you’re not putting that thing in me, I am not putting those chemicals in myself, and I am sure as hell not putting a vaccum or a knife in MY body.” Women, in the guise of freedom, gave themselves over to slavery some 40 to 50 years ago. The women’s movement basically made the decision that says, ‘Hey baby, YOU can do whatever you want with MY body and so have all the fun you want.
Which amendment of the Bill of Right mentions abortion?
Exactly. FEAR - is the enemy of the USA and PATRIOTS are fearless. The USA was too good to too many and they are fearful of losing it; so they cowardly bunker down to allow every evil on America. Not so with Patriot Newt.
Hey mutt, this is not a site for idiots. Take your hatred for PATRIOTISM/Conservatism elsewhere.
Experience is the best teacher, so a 'zot' is what should be for the mutt.
And may the mutt get the same ‘long over due zot’ as did pissant.
You are playing games, now.
Roe v. Wade - highest law in the land, at least for now, but you know that. Why do you want to waste time arguing over settled law?
Want to change it? Vote for people who will be able to overturn it, though that rarely happens.
WRONG!! Talking about. Either speak truth or get lost. You are just like the media he is addressing. This conservative site is NOT interested in your propaganda/lies/twisting of facts and snickering.
You got Obamacare and Romneycare and NOT by Newt, idiot!
Exactly. There is no talking to those hell bent on LYING about Newt - I say kick their snickering butts to the curb.
What? Playing games? What part of killing the defenseless is OK to your settled mindset? Same sex marriage has been deemed law in MA - is that OK by you?
It’s mindsets like yours who roll over and accept evil while criticizing others who STAND firmly against it! And why? To save your butt, also, from the curse all this evil brings to America.
If you can’t STAND for what is right for America - get out of the way of those who do!
RvW is not “law” it is a dictatorial decree from UNELECTED people who bestowed the power of God unto themselves
He savagely attacked Romney's work at Bain Capital, and finally he caved in to probabe rapist Bill clinton time and time again during the 1995 budget debate.
You can call me anything you want. As the Conservatie White Sheep in an extended family of Leftist Regressives, my neo-Marxist would beg to differ with your argument that I'm not a Conservative.
You REFUSE to get the facts straight - so you are a liberal maggot! Get lost, creep! America and FR does not need or want you! LYING is LIBERAL!
No, this is America, our rights come from God, who said "Thou shalt not commit murder"...
NOT the Supreme Court.
To the men who have a hard time grasping this, imagine this scenario:
You’ve been thrown in jail. (Don’t say that couldn’t happen because you are a law-abiding citizen. Remember who is still “ruling” America.) Now imagine a cell-mate who is much, much bigger than you and is leering at you.
How long do you think you can keep him away?
How do you think tiny women feel?
Do you think a woman should have to live in a state of terror and carry a gun 24/7? Only when she is outside of her own home?
I have a friend with knife scars on her face. From being attacked in her own home with the doors locked.
They want to kill unborn babies, yet spare the lives of convicted murderers. What an upside down, topsy-turvy world they live in.
thank you for posting this. One doesn’t want to dwell on victimhood, but it does get tiresome when men just don’t get, refuse to get, what it’s like to be prey to predators. And you are right - one can’t go around armed at every moment - we’re living in cities and suburbs, not riding the range.
And what is your plan to overturn Roe v Wade cause I will be in.
