Presidential Elections 2012 - #3584 - VIDEO: Newt Gingrich: I am Appalled: Fiery Gingrich Avoids Answering Ex-Wife Questions, Blast CNN's King and 'Vicious, Negative' Press - The Blaze (2) Rush Limbaugh: Drudge Screwed Up ABC's Plans for the Marianne Gingrich Interview


Newt Gingrich: I am appalled: Answering Ex-Wife Questions, Blasts CNN's King and 'Vicious, Negative' Press - The Blaze - Upon introducing each presidential candidate present at CNN’s Southern debate Thursday evening, moderator John King asked Newt Gingrich about his ex-wife’s accusations that they had an “open marriage.” Gingrich was having none of it, however, and in a fiery display, castigated King and “the elite media.”  Asked if he wanted to respond to his ex-wife’s claims, Gingrich blazed, “No. But I will. I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country.”  He added that this type of negativity prevents “decent people” from seeking public office.  “I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country, harder to attract decent people to run for public office.”  The crowd erupted in applause.  I am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that!”  “Every person in here knows personal pain, Gingrich elaborated. “To take an ex-wife and make it two days before the primary a significant question in a presidential campaign is as close to despicable as anything I can imagine.”  Read more....

Drudge Screwed Up ABC's Plans for the Marianne Gingrich Interview - Rush Limbaugh - ...............Now, of course, we're not gonna get ABC News -- in a race, by the way, with NBC now. ABC, how about this. We were told ABC had been very concerned about the ethical implications of airing their hit piece on a Republican candidate right before an important primary election. I almost wrenched my back laughing at that, that the ABC suits were in an ethical fight, in a conundrum? I wonder, oh, my God, what to do, what's the ethical thing to do here? If there was any debate at ABC, it was over when would be the best time to do it so as to cause the most harm. That was the only debate......... So here's what I think. Here's what I think was going on. I think that ABC, in a race with NBC to curry favor with Obama, and to also hold onto the mantel of taking out Republicans. Remember it was ABC and Brian Ross, our old buddy ABC and Brian Ross who took out Mark Foley over the page stuff in 2006. They did a recount, got Santorum the winner by 34. Now there's a massive call, "All right, Iowa, you've blown it, why should you go first when you can't even get it right." So you got Santorum winning Iowa. You've got Romney winning New Hampshire, but that was expected. Now you've got Rasmussen with Newt polling ahead of Romney in South Carolina. Rick Perry pulls out this morning, endorses Newt. Perry was drawing 4% in the polls, so you don't know, even if all 4% go to Newt, what difference does that make. So I think the objective of ABC was to take Mitt out this week, or to just do damage. And I think they were saving Marianne Gingrich for Monday after the vote, after Newt wins or theoretically wins South Carolina, then they run the Marianne interview, and that takes Newt out of, and then who we left with?  Read entire article.........
