Newt nailed it.

This wasn’t supposed to happen.
Newt brought up the radical abortion agenda of the Democratic Party during the discussion.
Transcript via Meet the Press:

MR. GINGRICH: And– and– and– I’m– I’m frankly, fed up, with the one-sided bias, okay. Let me give you two examples. Vice president of the United States goes to a black audience and says if the Republicans win you will be in chains. Now, where is the– how can Biden remain as vice president? Where is the outrage over overt, deliberate racism? And we talk about people saying things they ought to get off tickets. How come Biden shouldn’t get off the ticket? Second example, the Democratic Party plank on abortion is the most extreme plank in the United States. The president of United States 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 of– of, meaning, partial birth abortion, that’s a 20 percent issue. The vast majority of women do not believe the taxpayers should pay to abort a child in the eighth or ninth month. Now why isn’t it shocking that the Democrats on the social issue of abortion have taken the most extreme position in this country and they couldn’t defend their position for a day if it was made clear and a vivid– as vivid as all the effort is made to paint Republicans?

MR. FRIEDMAN: I’m a Planned Parenthood Democrat on– on– on the issue of– of choice. And I think that that is where the country should be. That is where many, many women in this country are. And I’m glad there are people running for the presidency who will defend that position. Period. Paragraph. End it.

GREGORY: Newt, I guess the question, too, is whether– whether you’re seeking even in the Akin example of this kind of to seek an equivalency between that and say, Biden, who is using language that Republicans have used about, you know, the regulatory shackles, as opposed to making an overt racial…

MR. GINGRICH: Biden was not talking to a black audience about regulatory shackles, okay. But– but I’m making– I’m making– let me go back to Tom’s point, because I’m– so– so you think it’s acceptable to have a party committed to tax-paid abortion in the eighth and ninth month? And you think that’s a sustainable position in the United States. If the news media spent as much time on the extremism of the Democrats as they spend trying to attack us, you would– they would not be able to adopt that plank this week.

MR. FRIEDMAN: Yeah, I– I do believe that’s a defensible position but I also believe I’m– I’m here as a journalist, I’ll let the Democratic Party defend it.

    SEe, if Newt continues to do this and IF in the ‘debates’ the candidates call the ‘moderators’ (such an oxymoron given their zealotry) on their language THEN the MSM will be infiltrated.

    On these shows, less scripted, Conservatives can sneak in and break the MSM lib cycle because adlib is not something the left can deal with competently.

    So, Tom Terrific says he’s a PP Dem on abortion, “but I’ll let them defend it becauses I’m a journalist”!

    What a load!

    I thought Tom was the most brilliant “journalit” of our time?

    Let me fix that for you, Mr. Friedman:

    “Yeah, I-I do believe that is a defensible decision but I also believe I’m-I’m completely clueless as to how I could defend it in a way that will win people over to my side.”

    Gingrich hits Rove over Rep. Akin murder joke
    By Elise Viebeck – 09/02/12 12:41 PM ET

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich knocked Karl Rove for his joke about “mysteriously murdering” Rep. Todd Akin (R), the embattled Missouri Senate candidate.

    “In the age of Gabby Giffords, it is not a joke to say a member of Congress ought to get murdered,” Gingrich said Sunday on “Meet the Press.”

    The former GOP presidential candidate was referring to retired Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was shot in the head last year at a constituent event and is still recovering.

    Rep. Akin grabbed headlines last month when he said that victims of “legitimate rape” rarely become pregnant. He then refused to leave his race against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) over objections from Republican leaders, who fear he could cost them a chance to take back the Senate.

    The ensuing firestorm prompted Rove to say, last week, that if Akin is “found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts.” He later apologized.

    Gingrich came to Akin’s defense Sunday, saying that “Akin has publicly apologized” and “won the primary.”

    “Todd Akin was a choice for people in Missouri,” Gingrich said.

    Could a Democrat please explain why it’s ok to abort an 8-9 month fetus but not a 2 day old baby? Not a 2 week old baby? Not a 1 month old baby? Not a 6 month old baby? Not a 5 year old child?

    Why can a mother kill her baby if it survives the attempted 8-9 month abortion (a position Obama supports), but if she takes it home alive for a couple of days then it’s not ok to kill it anymore?

  • Ghost

    it remains true, No-Bo-Dy! can defeat Newt Gingrich in a fair debate. The guy consistently throws devastating Right hooks- he’s a Conservative Rocky Marciano.

    Gingrich just HAS TO BE! in the Romney administration somewhere. If he was the next Secretary of State (and Rudy Guiliani next Attorney General) I would skip on clouds during the day and sleep soundly at night.

    Hey, it could happen! (seeing Doris Kearns Goodwin on that panel reminded me) Abraham Lincoln picked a, “Team of Rivals” for his Cabinet during our worst ever tribulation.
    maybe ‘Providence’ still favors us? (for the 99th time)

    Newt has learned his lesson since failing to support Doug Hoffman in NY, and is now applying that lesson re Missouri.

    “…but I also believe I’m– I’m here as a journalist,…”

    Ha ha ha ha. The laugher for the day.

    Imagine that – Tom Friedman, the NYT columnist who just loves him some Chinese Commies, a “journalist”.

    Idiot would be more like it, and he’s one of those pretty much all the time.

  • Old One

    So why wouldn’t a planned parethood eugenicist murderer defend partial birth abortions since others of his leftist ilk who title themselves medical ethicists in “professional publications” are advocating mothers being able to murder their children if she so choose on medical, “humanitarian”, or economic grounds
    The eugenicists of the Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood have taken the democrap party hostage. The leftist dominated democrat party and their propagandists in the marxstream disinformation organs known as the media are loudly trumpeting such murderous theories as they daily sound more like Hitler’s nazis with their horrifying mantra that the sick, handicapped, afflicted, mentally disabled, senile, & physically defective are as Hitler dubbed them the living not deserving life.
    Totalitarians inevitably advovcate, defend, and ultimately practice mass murder. Such diabolical acts are now the democrat election platform and the direction Ovomit and his band of usurper marxist brigands want to impose on our nation under the cloak of women’s body rights.

    MEET THE PRESS transcript – – –
    September 2: Rahm Emanuel, Newt Gingrich, Carly Fiorina, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Tom Friedman, Tom Brokaw

    MR. GINGRICH: Let me just take a second, I disagree with Carly, I— I think Todd Akin was the choice of the people in Missouri, and Todd Akin has publicly apologized. And I think that— and the last poll show he’s beaten the Democratic senator. I think that we ought to go on from that, Karl Rove said some terrible things on Friday for which he has apologized which should remind us, people make mistakes. Vice president of the United States…

    GREGORY: He was joking about if he shows up and murdered someone.

    MR. GINGRICH: No. In— in— in the age of Gabby Giffords, it is not a joke…

    GREGORY: Yeah.

    MR. GINGRICH: …to say that a member of congress ought to get murdered.

    GREGORY: Yeah.

    MR. GINGRICH: And— and— and— I’m— I’m frankly, fed up, with the one-sided bias, okay. Let me give you two examples. Vice president of the United States goes to a black audience and says if the Republicans win you will be in chains. Now, where is the— how can Biden remain as vice president? Where is the outrage over overt, deliberate racism? And we talk about people saying things they ought to get off tickets. How come Biden shouldn’t get off the ticket?


    MR. GINGRICH: Look, when— when a majority of the people of Missouri on Friday, in the latest PPP poll said he should stay on (unintelligible) majority of Democrats, majority of Republicans, majority of independents. He won the primary. Now for Washington figures, remember, the same Washington figures who last time wanted to kick off Marco Rubio for Charlie Crist who will be in Charlotte, I just think people ought to be a little cautious about saying the voters of Missouri don’t count.

    Tom Friedman sort of stumbled after Newt, and in the end, said nothing at the end of his paragraph. I’m pretty sure he was wanting and hoping Newt to end it[the discussion].

    Newt has made some gaffe’s, but in the end I still like him. He gets to, and makes his point.

  • Swifty

    Brokaw is a butt rash.

  • averagemelon

    There is no such thing as a “woman’s BODY right”. It’s natural. It’s part of the package called “female” at birth. When a woman has sex, she can become pregnant. It’s part of the “female” package called procreation. The only CHOICE she EVER GETS is the CHOICE TO HAVE SEX. After that, her natural body takes over. I wish women would STOP BEING SO UNBELEIVABLY SELF CENTERED and think it’s just fine to murder AN INFANT because she CHOSE to have sex and her body did what it was designed to do and made ANOTHER HUMAN BEING.

    Newt needs to be put on television 24/7 and defend the Republican platform by decimating the Democratic Party with nothing but the TRUTH. I LOOOOVE the man’s spine!

  • Ella

    7 -Thank you.

    Am i the only one who is wondering what psychological scars women get from abortions? Why do we NEVER hear about those? I know, it is not convenient to the Democraps.

  • http://holgerawakens.blogspot.com Holger Awakens

    Friedman looked like he lost every ounce of spit in his body in less than 30 seconds. What a pussy. You want late term abortions at the taxpayers’ expense, then say it – sick of these spineless wimps.

  • pill

    What he said regarding Todd Akin overshadowed every thing else..that seat is very important to overturning Obama care..Newt and Phyllis Schaffley have it right..His treatment has been shabby ..by elitists that think they are intellectual superior.. Rove sucks…

    TOP TEN Things You Will NOT See or Hear at the D-cRAT Socialist Convention
    1. The American flag
    2. A Bible
    3. An un-aborted fetus (i.e., an infant – NO, the mental age and behavior of the delegates and speakers do not count.)
    4. Respect for the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Rule of Law or the US Military
    5. A person who has CREATED a JOB
    6. A person that WORKS at a job
    7. A person that is NOT a member of the Choom Gang
    8. The TRUTH
    9. George Soros and the other BILLIONAIRES, MILLIONAIRES, union Bo$$es and other 1%-ers that provide millions to the d-cRAT socialist party and ultimately control it
    10. Any of the thousands of OBOZO crony capitalist /crony socialists who have gotten millions of dollars of taxpayer money and then let their phony, non-competitive ventures go bankrupt with only the taxpayers getting shafted

    NB: You will also NOT see Shrillary Rotten Clinton at this OBOZO event since she’ll be as far away from OBOZO and the DNC as she could get (while still being on Earth). The bad news: she’ll probably do another drunk, dirty dancing exhibit at this location (hey, she’s on the taxpayer dime so what do you expect?).
