    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.

    #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

    more of much more here..


  • Ipso Facto

    Pelley = Liberal dweeb.

  • Dave-O

    I wish we could have had another camera on Pelley’s face as Newt lectured him on what is indeed the “rule of law” – as that smug little satisfied smile slowly dripped off his face.

  • Robert

    They don’t seem so worried about “the rule of law” and whether “found guilty by a court of law, sir” when they are smearing Herman Cain.

  • bg



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


    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..


    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..


  • Mrs. X

    Pelley got Newtered.

    The more I see of Newt during the debates, the more I like him. He is skewering the leftist moderators at a nice, fast pace.

  • 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 ”

    that is very telling

    the debates are a trap

    its the moderators vs candidates

    just like bush ran against abc cnn cbs nbs nbs npr kgb nyt latimes
