Newt Gingrich Tells Off Fox News’ Chris Wallace for “Mickey Mouse” Gotcha Questions

Newt Gingrich Slams Fox News’ Chris Wallace for “Mickey Mouse” Gotcha Questions During GOP Presidential Debate in Iowa

Newt Gingrich gave a fiery response to a “gotcha” question from Fox News’ Chris Wallace about his campaign difficulties. Gingrich lowered the boom on him.


Wild Thing's comment.......

LOL he really let Chris have it.

Also here are the names Pelosi added to the list for the Super Committee.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi named three Democrats to the new deficit-cutting committee on Thursday, finalizing the list of 12 lawmakers who will try this fall to find ways to reduce the budget deficit by at least $1.2 trillion.

Ms. Pelosi (D., Calif.) tapped three lawmakers known for protecting entitlement programs: Reps. Xavier Becerra (D., Calif.), Chris Van Hollen (D., Md.), and James Clyburn (D., S.C.).

"We must achieve a 'grand bargain' that reduces the deficit by addressing our entire budget, while strengthening Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security," Ms. Pelosi said in a statement. The group should "make decisions regarding investments, cuts and revenues and their timing to stimulate growth while reducing the deficit."

A former history professor, Newt Gingrich is the most lucid speaker and the most knowledgable debater in most any gathering. He has his problems, but contributes much.

His forceful stand up retort comes from a lifetime of political experience of another era. It's something you won't likely see from younger soft politicians who've had it relatively easy by the flaccid modern press corps.

Businessman and banker Herman Cain remains the most practical and capable, amiable yet authoritative, and the least politician like persona on that stage.

Chris Wallace does like to throw out those "gotcha" questions.

I felt that one question to Michelle Bachmann about being a submissive wife was a low blow. The questioner was asking her if as president would she be subservient to her husband. Her explanation of what a biblical submissive wife is was fantastic.

Ron Paul is fruit loops.

Carlos, I agree with what you said and thanks for sharing about Newt being a former history professor.

Bob, I felt like that too, Michele Bachmann handled it well, but it was out of line imo.

I agree too aboutu Ron Paul.
