Newt Gingrich Mocks the Thought of Debating Obama: “If He Wants to Use a TelePrompter That’s Fine… We Have to Be Fair” (Video)

Newt Gingrich mocked President Obama yesterday in Naples, Florida. The former Speaker of the House said he would like to challenge Obama to seven Lincoln-Douglas style debates.
“If he wants to use a TelePrompter, that’s fine… We have to be fair.”

    OMG. I used to not be able to stand this man, but he very well may be the best person to beat that fool in the WH. How times change.

    LOL. That is one great line by the Newt.

    I love Newt Gingrich! He has a dynamite sense of humor, is an expert at “killing them with kindness” and has never been afraid to tell it like it is. Go Newt!

  • SpideyTerry

    I’m sure Obama will respond to this soon enough. Hopefully, though, his teleprompter will break down in the middle of it.

    A deftly administered blow by Gingrich on Obama. Most contenders out class Obama but Gingrich is king in debates.

    We’re told endlessly that BHO is brilliant, the smartest ever to be in the WH. What he has done while in the WH certainly belies these claims. But we don’t even know this guy’s SAT, LSAT scores that might suggest “brilliance.” We don’t know regular class grades and class rank. Or anything that this guy has written by himself.

    All of this secrecy suggests the obvious. He ain’t brilliant, but rather is a through-and-through affirmative action baby, just like his money-grubbing Mooch-chelle.

    As far as the left is concerned we are not to be allowed to trust but verify, but are to take their word that this guy is super qualified and that’s to be the end of the matter.

    Newt might eat him up. Mitt would nothing of the sort, being the same as Dole and McCain.

    Gingrich is a smart guy and a good guy. However, we have to be careful. We all know he is smart but if we raise expectations too high prior to the debates and Obama actually comes out of them without looking like the absolute idiot that he is, the media will declare the old “draw.”

    Remember, McCain was leading Obama just prior to the debates in 2008. When Obama dodged and weaved in the first debte thus preventing himself from looking like the imbecile he is, he took the lead from McCain and never looked back.

    It is going to be Gingrich or Romney and much to the media’s chagrin, they cannot play the old the Republican is dumb card. Given that and the fact that Obama will have to defend his horrible record, the GOP is looking pretty good.

    The only thing that could prevent a GOP victory in 2012, is the GOP supporters themselves. Get behind our nominee regardless of who it is and defeat the socialist.

    Obama is not going to respond to this. Both he and Newt know that there is no chance that a Presidential debate will ever feature Newt.

  • Gride

    anyone remember Chris Farley doing a Newt impersonation at the House Republican Conference? I always loved this

    There hasn’t even been a primary vote, and same old Newt is looking right past the voters putting himseff on stage with Obama….Time to sing a new song Chiqui TEA…>>>

  • Sandy

    If Newt’s the right guy we nead to coalesce behind him. The only thing keeping Obama standing is the fact that there is no cohesive message coming from our side. It would also help if Rush didn’t attack Newt daily. There is no perfect candidate but Newt comes damn close.

  • Sandy

    Our Leftist Media will say — Ok so Newt won the debates but he’s not likable. Get your ear plugs ready — before long Newt will be the second coming of Jack The Ripper.

    The Supremes are going to rule on CommieCare in the middle of 2012. SCOAMF is pretty darn sure that it is going to be shot down (fingers crossed). Watch the chaos he will create using this tactic to shirk some of the debates.

    If Newt wins the primary, he will destoy SCOAMF in the debates. SCOAMF can’t look the fool on a national stage. He is in way over his head and this administration knows it

    RE: #9, that was epic!

  • Eubulides

    Q: Why won’t Gingrich be elected President in 2012?

    A: He won’t be nominated.

  • Rose

    If you are gonna have Lincoln-Douglas debates, ya need at least ONE “LINCOLN”.

    A FREDERICK DOUGLASS would be fine.

    But give us ONE Conservative Statesman, in all fairness!

    I have NO patience for those who give us a RINO MARXIST DIM ENABLER and try to pass him off as a so-called “Conservative” – MUCH LESS pretend he is a Constitutionalist!

    I am pretty much resigned to a Write-In.

    Anyone who completely discounts Newt for POTUS because he sat on a Sofa with Pelosi is being an idiot. Anyone who calls Newts plan for dealing with illegal immigration blanket “amnesty” is dishonest and not paying attention.

    There are no perfect candidates. There never have been and never will be and if, like Obama, they try to tell you they are perfect, like Obama, they are lying.

    Newt is the best athlete here. We don’t need another “Washington Outsider” who will learn on the job. We need someone who knows how Washington works and how to make it work.

    Newt is the guy.

    When all is said and done, you want to know why Newt will win the nomination?

    Because he is the one guy who is 100% sure to make Obama look like an idiot and the Republican base desperately wants a nominee that can make Obama look like an idiot.
