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.

  • PegLeg

    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.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    “…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.


  • Katielee

    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.

  • 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?).

  • dunce

    That was not a fair debate , Newt was allowed to answer them without being shouted down by the crowd of democrat suck ups. The poor slobs did not stand a chance.

  • Sean

    A part of me really would have loved to see Newt debate Hussein.

  • Sasja

    Do I need to preface this link with a comment? Nah. It says it all.


  • RedStater

    Is it just me or does Brokaw sound like the teacher on those Charlie Brown specials? Wa wa wa wa wa!

  • Facauwee Tribe

    I watched an abortionist, Dr. Susan Wicklund, on Book TV. Women were calling in and thanking the doctor, and telling about their own abortion experience. They sounded traumatized by the event, and most broke down crying. It was difficult to watch.

  • RedStater

    #20- Here’s 10 things you WILL see at the DNC.

    1. Bob Beckel eating a whole box of donuts.
    2. Bowls of condoms(ala, the Olympics).
    3. Birth control pills raining down on Sandra Fluke after she gives her speech.
    4. Joe Biden dressed like Jacob Marley.
    5. Occupiers flinging their, uh, food at everyone.
    6. Bill Clinton hitting on some babe from Fox News.
    7. Obama wearing his golf outfit(hat included) for his nomination speech.
    8. Chris Matthews talking in a strange voice and spitting up pea soup whenever someone says “Chicago”.
    9. The Oregon delegation lighting up their blunts all at the same time.
    10. Michelle Obama eating Carolina BBQ like there’s no tomorrow.

  • old glazier

    We could have had a V-8 (Newt)

  • Joe Blow

    Why is it, that when someone murders a pregnant woman (probably later in the pregnancy) the murderer can be charged with a double homicide? If it is OK for a woman to abort (murder) a baby late in her pregnancy for just any old reason, then why isn’t it also murder? I know, the libs say it isn’t a life until it is born. Yeah right.

  • stonedome

    #26 you will also see gay married couples on stage from those leftist states that allow it which, ironically, north carolina does not.

  • Votemout2012

    I see Mr. Hoft carefully leaves out the fact that Newt is defending Akin in his post title. Something all you conservative pundits should have doing all along. I think its great Newt points out that MO primary votes for Akin should count. Finally a CONSERVATIVE steps up to do the RIGHT thing. AMEN Newt. MO thanks you.

  • Jonah Vark


    Mr. Hoft is more Republican than Conservative, apparently.

    Wow, Newt has wiped out nearly every leftist journalist this week. Nice job Gingrich.

    Friedman was a blubbering idiot not to mention Brokaw couldn’t seem to grasp any concepts.

  • Roger Ramjet

    Is there any doubt remaining that Thomas Friedman is a complete dolt? Watching the entire clip shows just how far behind the conversation he is. No wonder he’s got a gig with the NY Times.

  • Jeannie

    #8 – once before we had an advisory cabinet that a president compiled from his opponents in the primary. This is what I think would be the wisest thing and I could see Ryan recommending this.

  • owl

    Mr Holt wants to win. So do I. Plus, I dislike prigs that spout the zero tolerance as if they are God Almighty and say stupid things when talking about a woman’s body.

    I agree with Mitt Romney’s position on abortion. I think an exception should have been added for woman’s health, incest or rape.

    Do I have to have 100% perfection, my way or nothing? Nope. I will vote Repub, even though I think it is disgraceful not to have added that exception.

    Yeah, yeah, bring it on. Principles, yada yada yada.

  • owl

    #8 ghostie I actually supported Gingrich until he couldn’t hold it together. He would have been better off without Callista and was hoping he wouldn’t blow. I really wanted to see him whip Obama. 100% Rudy for AG.

  • Sasja

    Joe Blow. In our sick society only a woman is allowed to have her unborn child murdered. That is why when someone else is responsible for the pregnant woman’s death, he is also charged with the murder of the child. Wonder what charges would be filed if the woman were on her way to get an abortion when she was murdered?

  • Donna S

    I certainly did notice Tom Brokaw’s bashing. Guess he’s like the rest of them. Except Stephanopoulos thinks the media has no bias. Good lord. They’ve lost their perspective but we already know this. AND Chris Matthews is completely unhinged. I predict a nervous breakdown for him.

    I loved Newt pointing out their extreme abortion position. It brought a smile to my heart for him to bring it up and shove it in their faces. Tom Friedman would’nt touch it with a ten foot pole. He just ran from it with “I’m just a journalist”.

    It’s amazing how liberals have lost all perspective. I just know there is a sleeping giant like 2010 that’s going to rise up and put the country back where it belongs.

    Way to go Newt. .I hope Romney/Ryan take a page out of your playbook. . When we have the facts, go on offensive. . no matter who asks what inane question. .turn-it-around. . .

    And do a Ronald Reagan with MSM say, Tom there you go again with your left leaning MSM bias to carry water for Obama. . .

    American people are hearing more and more what we conservatives heard 4 years ago. . .for sure two years ago when we took the House in a landslide. . .Nov 2010. . .

    The Silent Majority will be silent no more – – look at Wisconsin and the Scott Walker fight.

    Things must be looking bad for Obumma. .real bad that liberal sites like yahoo willing to post stories about are things better off today than four years ago. .

    And comments worth reading. .
    Here is one that is spot on. . .by Jack David. . .

    These are facts my Democrat friends. Obama had complete control of Congress for the first 2 years of office. How he handled those first two years was so bad to the American people that they actually were willing to put the Republicans back in Congress specifically to stop his agenda. It is actually YOUR party that has ignored the voice of the American people to compromise and work with the Republicans to change direction. Bush may have caused this mess* but that is why we picked your party to stop the debt spending, stop BOTH wars, and work on stimulating the economy. 5 trillion dollars of new debt was not worth the meagerly recovery we received. Stop the blame game and fix it or let someone else have a shot.

    * Pelosi and Reid controlled Congress from 2006. . .but Bush was a RINO and didn’t help!

    Keep it up Newt!

    “Journalists” reveal their biases by showing what does NOT offend them. The MSM went into fits over Akin’s rape comments. However, I rarely see the MSM express any kind of discomfort with any method of abortion, no matter how vulgar. What Obama supported in that bill is gruesome and heartless, yet the media respond with a yawn. Their yawns tell us that they basically have no problem with killing babies who survive abortions… or with partial-birth abortions…

  • 2LB

    Karl Rove apologizes?? How ironic! We should accept his apology but not Todd Akins??? I will stand by a good decent man any day over the, back stabber, Rove. “The Party Bosses” have themselves to blame if Claire Air should win. Any conservative who does not vote for Todd deserves what they get with Clair in the Senate again!

  • colint

    I have read there are 1,400,000 (decrease) abortions a year including 800 required in the 3rd trimester because the foetus had some condition fatal to sustaining a life after birth. ALL these babies were carried by women who WANTEd to have a child. Prolife EXTREMISTS peddle the idea that these women changed there minds and CHOSE to end a viable pregnancy. No doctor is going to FORCE delivery of a VIABLE baby without a sound medical reason. When faced with the TRAGEDY that the WANTED baby she has been carrying for six months has a fatal condition all she wants to do is PRESERVE her ability to have another child. Unfortunatly some EXTREMISTS want to poke their noses into matters that are not their concern.

  • LL

    Mark Levin played a audio soundbite of Obama blabbering about a baby being born limp could be killed. You should find & post this bit. It is truly horrifying. I believe it was when BO was in the state senate.

  • pam

    Most democrats don’t believe in abortion, we believe in the right to chose letting the woman answer to her doctor and her god, what we do believe in is birth control and planned parenthood, keyword planned. When these unwanted children are born you label their mother’s welfare queens and want to deny them any kind of social services, so what’s your point to have people born to look down your nose at. What we reject is a potential senator who doesn’t have enough common sense to know that there is no magic substance in our body to reject rapist sperm, if that’s the case half of us wouldn’t be here because our mother’s would have jumped up after sex and screamed rape.

  • pam

    oh yeah Obama was no where around when roe v wade was decided, and another question is why when bush was in office no one asked him to reverse roe v wade, why didn’t he do a lot of things you conservatives want, why did ryan push stimulus when bush was in office, why did ryan only author two bills after more than 12 years in congress, you ask am I better off today than bush’s era, yes my 401k is coming back, the housing market is coming back and we’ve had continual months of job growth so we are on the right track, when the “job creators” were given tax breaks during the bush era they found cheap labor overseas and hid money in the caymen islands and screwed up our 401k’s, does enron sound familiar.

  • I have looked but could not find where the Democrats say that they are pro-abortion. What I have heard them say is that they are pro-choice. To me, this means that women are free to choose what is right for them. In other words the Democrats are pro-women.
