Newt Gingrich Slams MSNBC Reporter During Discussion on Sarah Palin’s Qualifications

Here’s a video of Newt Gingrich being interviewed by MSNBC’s reporter Ron Allen.  A transcript is available below the video:

Allen: But to be fair, her resumé is not something that we’re familiar seeing with Presidential candidates.

Gingrich: It’s stronger than Barack Obama’s.  I don’t know why you guys walk around saying this baloney.  She has a stronger resume than Obama.  She’s been a real mayor, he hasn’t.  She has been a real governor, he hasn’t.  She’s been in charge of the Alaskan National Guard, he hasn’t. She was a whistle-blower who defeated an incumbent mayor.  He has never once shown that kind of courage.  She’s a whistle-blower who turned in the chairman of her own party and got him fined $12,000.  I’ve never seen Obama do one thing like that.  She took on the incumbent governor of her own party and beat him, and then she beat a former Democratic governor in the general election.  I don’t know of a single thing Obama’s done except talk and write.  I’d like you to tell me one thing Senator Obama’s done.

Allen: Thanks very much, Mr. Speaker. I’m going to leave it there.  I’m not going to argue the case.  Thanks very much.

And then he goes back to Keith Olbermann who goes to a commercial break.  Unfortunately, Olbermann doesn’t have videos up from yesterday, and MSNBC doesn’t seem to have anything else up either.  If anybody has the response from Olbermann, I’d love to link to it!

But that was pretty awesome.  Like I say, the media needs to be put in its place sometimes, and boy did Gingrich do that!

    We needto point out that under George W. Bush, Dow grew from 4000 to 14500 in first 6-7 years of his administration and a Republican congress. Democratic congress takes over and Dow has fallen over 3000 points. This cannot be a coinsidence. How long did it take the market to reach the 4000 figure from the start? Why do we not emphasis this? The liberal media is not about to point this out.

  3. Art Case Says:

    This is great reporting: Newt nailed Obama and the reporter appeared angry yet could not refute the facts! We know the major media moguls are extremely liberal and support only Obama!

    Their reporting is so blatantly biased it is clearly socialistic; perniciously and patently un-American. It is void of the positive facts on the progress in Iraq. Their reporting and Obama’s orations are rife with demagoguery!!

    The extremist liberals in the democratic party will dangerously reduce our national defense to pay for their socialistic projects and policies.!!!
