    And the Democrat Party Controlled Mainstream Media will paint this entire exchange by Newt as YET ANOTHER REASON why New is a DANGEROUS MAN and TOTALLY UNQUALIIFED to be President of the United States.

  • vityas

    That’s presidential.

  • Bob Z

    Well said President Gingrich

  • Sam Stone

    Since when is a Presidential debate a place where the questioners ARGUE with the candidates? Ask the question and get the answer. Then a follow up if desired, but Pelly is a first class ass!

  • nano

    Watch this carefully. What you are seeing here is how the press will treat Newt at every press conference were he President. The days of lickspittle devotion like they have on now would be gone. Active confrontation would be the rule of the day simple and true.

  • Mope

    You cut that too soon, Mr. Hoft. While we can hear Romney saying “Well said” (I think it was Romney.), the next words out of the moderator’s piehole was “Let’s change the subject…”
    Obviously, Pelley didn’t want to look like the fool he is.

  • Shawnet

    #5 Nano:
    At least it would be interesting and informative to watch Newt as President school any journalist ignorant enough to go at him with the arrogance and “down his nose” attitude journalists such as Pelley project. And downright fun to watch, as a degreed journalist, I might add ;o)

  • Coasta

    Pelly poo injecting “that is ridiculous, it is a rule of law” is not moderators position. I agree with nano.

    But I sure do love it when the face of Newt becomes stern and he puts the media (who ever it is) on notice!

    Herman Cain DISMANTLES President Obama’s Foreign Policy

    bottom line:

    more or less, one way or another..

    all of them wound up stating something Herman Cain
    had stated in his first response to the first question..

    the MSM still dismissing HC as if he
    crawled out from under some rock..

    Herman Cain HeadshotHerman Cain is a businessman, politician, and radio host who is a candidate for the Republican nomination. He is the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and was the chairman of the board of directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansaas City. He currently serves as a minister at the Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta, Georgia. EDUinReview will now take a look at his education background.

    Cain was born on December 13, 1945, in Memphis Tennessee. His parents are Lenora and Luther Cain, Jr. In 1967, Cain graduated from Morehouse College, where he studied mathematics. Four years later, he earned a Master of Science degree from Purdue University, where he studied computer science. Cain earned his master’s degree while he was working as a full-time ballistics employee for the U.S. Department of the Navy. Cain has received eight honorary degrees from Creighton, Johnson & Wales, Morehouse College, University of Nebraska, New York City Technical College, Purdue, Suffolk University, and Tougaloo College.

    After Cain finished his master’s work at Purdue, he quit his job with the Navy and went to work for the Coca-Cola Company as a business analyst. He then joined Pillsbury in 1977 and became the Vice President of the company in the early 1980s. In 1988, Cain and several investors bought Godfather’s Pizza from Pillsbury and Cain became the CEO of the company.

    Cain first ran for a Republican presidential nomination in 2000, but he quickly withdrew from the race. In 2004, he ran for a position in the U.S. Senate in Georgia but came in second place, after Johnny Isakson. Then in 2010, Cain seemed to have found a new source of political inspiration. He spoke at more than 40 Tea Party rallies, visited all of the early presidential states, and even became a YouTube sensation. He announced a presidential exploratory committee in January 2011.

    Savage on Cain

    damn, that man can’t debate a box of chocolates..

    what??

    slick Willie was the best??

    better the Hussein??

    go figure..

    oh wait, who was a ballistics major??

    damn, Cain would be the first black president elected by the content
    of his character, hence, the false sexual harassment, with absolutely
    no evidence to back it up, campaign against Cain.. ironically, the man
    most responsible for sexual harassment awareness in the workplace,
    again, go figure..

    Under Herman Cain, NRA launched sex harassment fight

    that too is from POLITICO, why haven’t the blogs, ie: Gateway Pundit,
    posted about it?? not to mention Herman Cain Is Telling The Truth..

    CRICKETS!!

    like i said, one need not love, like, nor vote for the man, but to
    deliberately sabotage the mans true intelligence, qualifications,
    and nature is an utter and despicable act of cowardliness imo..

  • Pete_Bondurant

    Look at Pelley’s dumb smile after he says “not the rule of law.” He thought he was being smart. It is incredible, the basic idea that those who wage war against the US and commits acts of war against the US are not entitled to civilian courts is something morons like Pelley just can’t wrap their heads around.

    In Pelley’s defense though, he was not taught that in journalism school.

  • pedro infante

    listen carefully

    before newt goes off you can hear the moderator say ” no ”

    It appears Mr. Pelley not only doesn’t know the rules of war but also the rules of fair and open debate. It’s the moderator’s job to encourage debate among the candidates, not with him.

    Newt would be my choice to be in combat with the legislative nuts. He would know how to get it done, but prefer him in the trenches and not with the button. He is a debater-in-chief.
    He is awesome with his knowledge. His judgement leaves something to be desired at times.

  • progressoverpeace

    Liberal idiots think that the US Constitution extends over the entire galaxy … but only for the times when they want to make some argument against America. Of course, this sort of idiocy is to be expected from any society stupid enough to belong to a an awful (even from a theoretical viewpoint) entity such as the UN. Americans are brainwashed into thinking that that sort of peerless, competitionless empowered entity is reasonable … LOL. SO, it isn’t a far stretch from that abject idiocy to thinking that the US Constituion is operative over the whole of the known universe – though there is no rule-making, enforcment or adjudication at that “global” level … but that nver stopped the left from declaring such a government.

    I know the left too well to like anything about them. Their self-hate (the one point of leftist philosophy that they got correct – anyone who knows a leftist well enough would have to hate him) and stupidity certainly extend to the far corners of the universe, unlike the US Constitution, which was made to be operative over …. the sovereign territory of the US.

    I would never vote for Romney or Romney Lite (Gingrich). The conservative porn he dishes may be viscerally satisfying, but he runs the risk of being the grouchy old man who shakes his stick.

    Gingrich left Congress with Congress members from both parties cheering his departure. He is the classic bright mind with sharp elbows.

    Herman Cain, one angry man who won’t become president | Statesman Journal | statesmanjournal.com

    http://www.statesmanjournal.com/article/20111103/OPINION/111030329/Herman-Cain-one-angry-man-who-won-t-become-president

    WASHINGTON — The Hermanator is now the hunted.

    Herman Cain, the long-shot Republican presidential-candidate-turned-front-runner, has done just about everything wrong since news broke Sunday night that his former employer had paid two women to settle sexual harassment complaints against him.
    Cain denied it. He said the women didn’t understand his humor. He said his accusers fabricated the charges. He said he couldn’t remember the details, then suddenly he could. He said he had no knowledge of the settlement, then suddenly recalled some details, which turned out to be vastly understated. He publicly predicted more allegations would surface. He blamed his opponents, he howled about racism, and he accused the media and the entire city of Washington of trying to do him in.
    On Wednesday morning, he raised the paranoia dial another notch. “There are factions trying to destroy me personally, and this campaign,” he announced, revealing this conspiracy to a group of technology executives at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, Va.
    At his next stop, a Hilton hotel in Alexandria, the amiable candidate finally blew his stack — and the scene quickly escalated into violence. It began when a reporter asked Cain if he would release his accusers from their confidentiality agreements.
    “I’m not going to talk about it,” Cain snapped, “so don’t even bother asking me all of these other questions that y’all are curious about. OK? Don’t even bother.”
    “It’s a good question,” the reporter pointed out. “Are you concerned?” asked another.
    Evidently, Cain was. “What did I say?” he hissed at the reporters, then attempted to break through the pack, shouting: “Excuse me. Excuse me! EXCUSE ME!” At that, his bodyguards began throwing elbows and shoving the reporters and photographers. “Stand back! … Do not push me! … Pushing is against the law! … Watch out! … Get a grip on yourself!” In the melee, a young boy and his father were shoved up against a wall.
    His campaign’s fisticuffs with Washington journalists probably won’t do Cain any harm among his supporters in Iowa; in fact, it will probably help. But Cain’s loss of control is a reminder of why he’s never going to be president, no matter how high he rises in GOP primary polls.
    His presidential bid was meant to be a lark, likely a gambit to increase speaking fees and book sales, perhaps to gain him a gig on cable news. At first, he was in on the joke, gaming the primary process and making up policies as he went along. He drank alcohol during public appearances, even in the morning. He allowed the release of a bizarre ad showing his chief of staff blowing smoke. He greeted female interviewers as “sweetheart” and occasionally gave them hugs.
    His staff celebrated his quirks in a don’t-feed-the-animals memo to those aides traveling in a car with the candidate: “Do not speak to him unless you are spoken to.”
    It was, at its very core, a preposterous premise: That a man who, as the former head of a big Washington trade group was at the very heart of this town’s lobbying culture, would run a campaign as the ultimate political outsider. He would claim that running for president “didn’t start as a consideration until after President Obama took office” — even though Cain ran for president once before, in 2000.
    But like the Duchy of Grand Fenwick in the Peter Sellers film “The Mouse that Roared,” Cain found himself triumphant against all odds. “We are surprised we’re doing so well so fast,” he acknowledged to the business leaders in Tysons Corner.
    But now, under the scrutiny that comes with being a top-tier candidate, Cain’s lark has become hard labor. The sunny candidate is now snarling and shouting, and obviously not enjoying himself in the least.
    “Can you tell us why you lost your temper this morning?” Fox News’ Chad Pergram asked the candidate when he arrived on Capitol Hill for a meeting to discuss health care with lawmakers.
    “Should a man whose company paid $35,000 for a woman to keep quiet be president?” asked NBC’s Luke Russert.
    This time, Cain ignored them. As the party got to the meeting room, his bodyguard resumed his shoving and elbowing, blocking congressional staff and reporters from getting into the meeting. When challenged, the bodyguard explained himself: “I make the rules.”
    Not anymore.

    Just remember Newt is a liberal con man. People need to get past his speeches and look at his ACTUAL RECORD. Since the 1980s Newt has been nothing but a Big Government Statist. He’s supported every hair brain scheme the far left cooked up.

    As of May THIS YEAR, Newt was supporting GOVERNMENT MANDATED health care insurance. He’s supported cap and tax, amnesty for illegals, and “green jobs” programs like Solyndra.

    As a lobbyist, I mean “consultant”, Newt has shilled for Freddie Mac, at the very time Republicans were trying to reform both Fannie and Freddie. Newt was paid handsomely ($300,000) to stop them. He’s also an ethanol whore, having gotten nearly a million bucks to shill for them, like he just did in Iowa.

    Also remember Newt is corrupt. People forget he was the ONLY Speaker of the House in the 222 year history of the House of Representatives to be officially disciplined for ethics violations.

    Newt is a disaster and would be the worst possible choice.

    That a single human being supports this liberal con man is a national tragedy.

    We got to see who was an idiot saying torture was illegal and who was a realist. The morons who try and square the circle that torture doesn’t work will have to explain the following to me:

    -Why it is used so effectively by our enemies.
    -Why it has been used for centuries, especially since it is so ineffective.
    -Terrorists are defined under artuicle IV of the the GGeneva Accords, which the US has ratified (and yes there are versions the US is not party to). According to this terrorists are guaranteed a swift execution without trial.
    -Terrorists are not and never have been protected by the Accords.
    -Exactly what is torture. The US Navy practised keel hauling and used the cat, the army tarred and feathered deserters and made them ride the horsae. Exactly what has been done to terrorists that approaches these?

    The MSM wouldn’t understand the laws of war if it ran over them.

  • Pelly was so proud of himself until Newt put the smack down on him and shoved it right up his liberal backside.

    Mr. Gingrich, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Shrek #74 — “…the scrutiny that comes with being a top-tier candidate…”

    Hey shrek, ever wonder why that only applies to candidates with an “R” after their names?

    You think Barry would have been polite if he’d been hounded about the Larry Sinclair allegations? You think he would have had his bodyguards push and shove a few reporters if they’d bothered to dog him with questions about that limousine ride – the cocaine and oral sex?

    What if they’d asked him if he thought it was a coincidence that 3 gay men (2 from TUCC) he knew were found dead (2 shot execution-style) just as his campaign began in ’07?

    You might want to think about Herman Cain and the lovely woman he’s been married to for 40 plus years. And then think about Barry and his wife. Think, too, about the values each has espoused and his track record of honesty.

    Then decide whose accusers are more believable. And which candidate deserves to be questioned – repeatedly.

    #75, Blackwater — you gotta forgive us. Newt’s far from perfect, but alot of us simply love the idea of that mouth and brain of his pumping out reponses to the fraud’s lameness in future debates.

    Sorry, it’s just too tempting.

    Oh, and btw, I think Newt understands our Constitution and respects the restrictions on presidential power far better than the WH commie. I wouldn’t worry so long as we have the House and/or Senate in conservative hands.

    I’ll be interested to see how/if he survives what may very well be his closer “scrutiny.” You can darn well bet Team Obama is hard at work on it.

    Why else would we have heard from you?

    “Herman walks the walk.”

    Yeah, The cock of the walk! Except when he’s hiding behind his wife.

    Just like this guy, right?

    you are so far behind with he facts of the
    matter, you must be a good friend of GP..

    just a wee sample:

    2 women, no charges filed, no claims made..

    “just words”, just like Obama’s..

    Herman Cain was a sexual harassment
    awareness pioneer in the workplace..

    go figure (fitb)head..

    btw, Herman Cain is innocent of sexual advances

    ipso facto’s: her lawyer not only stated he does not
    have any files, but she cannot recall a thing about it..

    and then there’s the paid bimbo Bialek, who’s only connection to

    Gingrich was the Grand Old Pal of President Bill Clinton. He supported Clinton’s unconstitutional wars (as he did Bush’s); he supported Clinton’s welfare programs, education programs, labor programs, and environmental programs, as well as most of his foreign affairs programs. Gingrich supported spending $30 billion for the Violent Crime and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 that shackled gun owners with new restrictions, federalized a number of crimes, and handed the feds police powers that the Constitution reserves to the states. (I guess the NRA forgot all about that, too.)

    Gingrich voted to give billions of dollars to United Nations “peacekeeping” operations; he supported the National Endowment for the Arts; he supports giving illegal aliens amnesty; and he has continually supported increased federal spending and higher taxes.

    In spite of overwhelming evidence that Newt Gingrich is a scheming, double-talking, duplicitous Big-Government globalist of the highest order, many conservatives continue to listen to pro-Gingrich propaganda coming from Fox News and other “conservative” outlets.

    If true conservatism has any chance of reemerging within the sheepfold of what is known as the national Republican Party, Newt Gingrich, must not be allowed to be anywhere near it. Unfortunately, thanks to mindless party hack media outlets, Gingrich is prowling around the barnyard and doubtless licking his chops at the prospect of having another opportunity to feast on the flesh of unsuspecting conservative sheep that foolishly believe him to be one of them.

    hah, and most conservatives believe liberals are tools..

    however, the joke is on them, as the majority not only think Obama
    was “elected”.. but that McCain was “selected” to run against him..

    and please correct me if i’m wrong, but Herman Cain is the first
    “non-politician” to ever to run for president at a time when our
    POLITICO NEEDS CLEANING OUT FROM ATTIC TO CELLER & BACK
    AGAIN, ergo, there is a God & we are the people..

    Thank You Herman Cain & Sarah Palin..

    “Why it is used so effectively by our enemies.”

    Did it work on John McCain?

    Torture is uncivilized and un-American. Torture is illegal under international law and under our law. It’s also immoral. And it’s also very impractical. There’s no evidence that you really get reliable evidence.

    It’s constitutionally illegal. Wake up. Follow the rule of law and quit supporting liberal con men like Newt.

    Most constitutional conservatives think “wannabe conservatives” like you are tools also and put you in the same category as liberals.

    “Herman Cain and Sarah Palin” What? Are you having a contest for the most vapid foreign policy idea’s?

    I agree that “POLITICO NEEDS CLEANING OUT FROM ATTIC TO CELLER & BACK” but putting a fox in charge of the hen house is not the answer. Cain is an insider, former Fed Reserve chairman and if you haven’t noticed it’s the banksters that control the politicos.

    Make NO MISTAKE about Herman Cain. Herman Cain is NO conservative. He is NO Tea Party candidate. He is an establishment Republican In Name Only. His positions on past issues are all we need to know that a Herman Cain presidency would not shrink the size of government, increase your liberties, or return America to its Constitution.

    Herman Cain supported the TARP bailouts. He even wrote a column to vigorously argue in favor of the Wall Street bailout in 2008, writing: “Wake up people! Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem.” Cain derided opponents of the bailouts as “free market purists.” That sounds more like something Rachel Maddow would call Tea Partiers than something a true Tea Partier would use as an insult.

    Herman Cain enthusiastically endorsed Mitt Romney for President in 2008. Herman Cain called Mitt Romney his “No. 1 choice” for president. Remember that Mitt “RINO” brought socialized medicine to Massachusetts as governor, and his “RomneyCare” legislation would eventually form the blueprint for ObamaCare, which all true Tea Partiers strongly opposed! How can a “Tea Party candidate” like Herman Cain endorse someone like Mitt Romney for president?

    Herman Cain opposes an audit of the Federal Reserve. Actually a former chairman of the Federal Reserve bank of Kansas City, Herman Cain opposes an audit of the Federal Reserve bank and supports its continued existence and manipulation of our dollar. This isn’t even just a Tea Party issue. 80% of ALL AMERICANS want an audit of the Fed. Herman Cain doesn’t.

    You have a responsibility to your country not to let your fellow Americans be fooled by the false impression Herman Cain is working hard to cultivate about himself.

    At this time of crisis, America CANNOT afford to elect someone with such a spotty record of positions and endorsements. We absolutely must elect someone with a die-hard record of unyielding commitment to liberty, someone who we absolutely KNOW will shrink the size, role, and influence of the government in Washington.

    matters not what i am or not, what matters is both leftists
    and rightists seem all too willing to drink the MSM kooliad..

    my country is full of crapheads who think the
    other side is full of crapheads who can’t think..

    they’re both full of crap & Ron Paul is the headmaster ofall crapheads..

    good luck with the future, as i’m certain the
    next generation will come back to bite you..

    problem is Herman Cain is way too intelligent to be understood, he does
    not support not auditing the FED.. people did & do not listen to what he
    says.. he also explained his support for TARP, however, so did Gingrich,
    Perry, Romney, all but Bachmann i believe.. and he didn’t have a vote..

    HERMAN CAIN IS THE TEA PARTY CANDIDATE,
    NOT THAT THE TEA PARTY HAS A CANDIDATE

    oh yeah.. i supported ROMNEY over rINO McLAME, so what’s your point??

    Herman Cain is a businessman, politician, and radio host who is a candidate for the Republican nomination. He is the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and was the chairman of the board of directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansaas City. He currently serves as a minister at the Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta, Georgia. EDUinReview will now take a look at his education background.

    Cain was born on December 13, 1945, in Memphis Tennessee. His parents are Lenora and Luther Cain, Jr. In 1967, Cain graduated from Morehouse College, where he studied mathematics. Four years later, he earned a Master of Science degree from Purdue University, where he studied computer science. Cain earned his master’s degree while he was working as a full-time ballistics employee for the U.S. Department of the Navy. Cain has received eight honorary degrees from Creighton, Johnson & Wales, Morehouse College, University of Nebraska, New York City Technical College, Purdue, Suffolk University, and Tougaloo College.

    After Cain finished his master’s work at Purdue, he quit his job with the Navy and went to work for the Coca-Cola Company as a business analyst. He then joined Pillsbury in 1977 and became the Vice President of the company in the early 1980s. In 1988, Cain and several investors bought Godfather’s Pizza from Pillsbury and Cain became the CEO of the company.

    Cain first ran for a Republican presidential nomination in 2000, but he quickly withdrew from the race. In 2004, he ran for a position in the U.S. Senate in Georgia but came in second place, after Johnny Isakson. Then in 2010, Cain seemed to have found a new source of political inspiration. He spoke at more than 40 Tea Party rallies, visited all of the early presidential states, and even became a YouTube sensation. He announced a presidential exploratory committee in January 2011.

    Gingrich has a way of sounding authoritative even when he is speaking drivel. The moderator’s question was an appropriate and well phrased restatement of a position taken weeks earlier by candidate Ron Paul. Gingrich’s answer was totally non responsible because he ignored the fact that the man was assassinated outside of any recognized combat zone and that no true process of law was involved.

    About that waterboarding thingie:

    Representative Peter King told Bill O’Reilly that waterboarding worked as terror mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed gave up the courier information that led to Osama bin Laden’s killing – which was confirmed by other terror suspects.

    No wonder VP Cheney was smiling…

    I suggest a visit here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newt_Gingrich

    to disabuse those who entertain silly notions such as these re Newt:

    …he supported Clinton’s welfare programs… (#91)

    FOR EXAMPLE:

    In 1996, after constructing two welfare reform bills that were vetoed by President Clinton,[33] Gingrich and his supporters pushed for the passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA), a bill aimed at substantially reconstructing the welfare system. Introduced by Rep. E. Clay Shaw, Jr., the act gave state governments more autonomy over welfare delivery, while also reducing the federal government’s responsibilities. It instituted the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program, which placed time limits on welfare assistance and replaced the longstanding Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Other changes to the welfare system included stricter conditions for food stamps eligibility, reductions in immigrant welfare assistance, and recipient work requirements.
    […]
    President Clinton found the legislation more conservative than he would have preferred; however, having vetoed two earlier welfare proposals from the Republican-majority Congress, it was considered a political risk to veto a third bill during a campaign season with welfare reform as a central theme.

  • mcc

    A bit more from link at #104. Gingrich’s Contract with America:

    Congress fulfilled Gingrich’s Contract promise to bring all ten of the Contract’s issues to a vote within the first 100 days of the session, even though most legislation was initially held up in the Senate. Over the objection of liberal/progressive interest groups[29] and President Clinton, who called it the “Contract on America”,[30] many aspects of the proposal were implemented in subsequent legislation.

    Legislation proposed by the 104th United States Congress included term limits for Congressional Representatives, tax cuts, welfare reform, and a balanced budget amendment, as well as independent auditing of the finances of the House of Representatives and elimination of non-essential services such as the House barbershop and shoe-shine concessions. Following Gingrich’s first two years as House Speaker, the Republican majority was re-elected in the 1996 election, the first time Republicans had done so in 68 years, and the first simultaneous with a Democratic president winning re-election.[31]
