Newt Gingrich BLASTS Chris Wallace for his “Gotcha” Questions at Iowa Debate (Video)

Pure Video Gold!
This was the best exchange all night from the Iowa debate.

It’s about time a Republican candidate slammed the liberal media for asking bogus ‘gotcha’ questions of the candidates rather than substantial policy questions. Newt went after Chris Wallace tonight for his outrageous tabloid questioning of the candidates. Awesome!

Wow!… That was terrific!

UPDATE: The analysts agreed after the debate that this was a good night for Newt.

    After listening to Chris Wallace’s questions the only conclusion I can come to is that he’s Obama’s representative. Instead of asking legitimate questions, all he did is start fights among the candidates. I’m interested in issues not cat fights.

    Gosh, did that feel good! Whooeee!

  • Molon Labe

    Newt nailed Wallace and the crowd roared. Wallace’s credibility is dropping everytime he engaged in his brand of journalism.

    Wow – awesome!!!! I may become a Newt fan. Well, that is a bit much! But, I do admire his debate skills, his ability to slam people in debate, to crush the MSM fools, and call them out on these types of set-ups. Newt’s points of policy were laser-focused and Conservative, too. (I usually like Chris Wallace, but he is a left-of-center MSM guy, after all, as he proved in that exchange.)

    But then, I see Newt on that couch with San Fran Nan……

    I would vote for him over Obama in a New York minute, but he has a LONG way to go to get that nomination.

    Thumbs up!

  • Tjexcite

    Not watching the debate did Wallace ask anyone if they are a flake because “someone” reported that they are.

    i don’t care for gingrich but its good to see someone stand up to the morally and politically bankrupt press.

    If only the rest of them would do the same!!!!!

    Newt is fantastic idea man.
    Ron Paul is super knowledgeable.
    Mitt is Casper milktoast.
    Pawlenty talks about past with not many new ideas.
    Michelle is ok, but not forceful enuf to lead even though I like her very much. Great VP.
    Herman Cain is no nonsense man of action. He needs to come up to speed more.
    Santorum…have no strong opinion.
    Huntsman…too much of an unknown at this time.

    Newt’s response gave me goosebumps. Hopefully, this issue will be addressed further more and on into whoever is Obama’s opponent, may actually start to have confidence in the GOP now that they can gfw in 2012 against the Obama Machine.

    Lots of weak, untoward questions. Goof ball media.

    Good for the Newt. Chris Wallace is stuck in the faux journalism world like all the rest of them. He’s a nice fella but he can’t see how shallow he is. And it had nothing to do with Newt’s record, how phony was that. And I don’t really care for Newt. He piled on Palin when they did the blood libel disgrace. Showed us who he was under the professor camoflauge.

    Thanks for that feel good moment, Newt.
    Wallace is a major jackass.

  • Sickofobama

    I thought Newt did well tonight, too, however, that comment he made about “ring wing social engineering” sealed his fate as far as I am concerned.

  • Sickofobama


    Wallace is a liberal so yes he is Obama’s representative.

  • Hobbitually conservative

    Newt isn’t middle of road, when he says good stuff it’s really good, then he’ll go and dance with Nancy Piglosi or something equally as stupid and negate everything he just said.

  • bigkahuna

    Wallace brought it on himself..

    Newt called him out on his crap and said what every GOP candidate should. I dont accept your ridiculous premise. Your question is a joke and not relevant to the issues facing the country. I dont want a catfight between candidates I want to hear them debate and let US decide if they answered honestly and intelligently. Point out your opponents differences where needed but save the fighting for Obama.

    Newt may not be everyones favorite and I know he pissed people off with his Green crap with Piglosi but as a whole I beliebve him to be the most intelligent, thoughtful, well prepared candidate with the most ideas, experience and insight into the solutions for the country.

    Newt would absolutely destroy Barry in a debate and send him home to Seabiscuit crying like the baby he is. Barry would be stutttering all night repsonding to Newts attacks and facts and figures

  • DCD-in-Indiana

    NOOOOOOOOOT!!!! I think I might have felt a tingle there.

  • bigkahuna

    But its also hard not to love Bachmans fight, passion and common sense. Plus she is a hottie !

  • raugaj

    I don’t trust Newt at all, at least as far as his core beliefs go, but I felt that he killed the field tonight. Just for fun, imagine him one on one debating Obama. Just thinking about the thumping he would lay on the organizer brings Cap’t Stiffy to town.
