Gingrich: Will Not Debate Obama With Reporters Moderating

January 31, 2012 by  

Newt Gingrich said on Monday that if he were the Republican Presidential nominee, he would skip any debate against Barack Obama that was to be moderated by reporters.

“As your nominee, I will not accept debates in the fall in which the reporters are the moderators,” Gingrich said at a rally in Pensacola, according to MSNBC. “We don’t need to have a second Obama person at the debate.”

The line falls in step with Gingrich’s repeated assault on the media who first attacked him over his marital infidelity and questioned his conservative ideals.

    Sam, are you aware that when someone in a journalistic venue talks about a ‘line,’ his or her objectivity has been willingly compromised? Should I assume that being objective is important to you?
    In this case, Gingrich is right. WHY would anyone submit to predictable, one-sided questions from America’s worthless, prostitute media? Haven’t we had enough “fair” from Obummer?
    You SHOULD BE savvy enough to know that Obummer will be asked “tough,” hard-hitting questions like ‘What he had for breakfast, or what his favorite color is, or does the dog have to go to a vet very often or perhaps what might constitute a healthy breakfast or does America have another Billary in the White House.’
    When media whores get around to asking Gingrich (or anyone else) various questions, the tactic will change, and the whole media circus will become so obvious that even a retarded utopian will see what’s going on and why.
    Sam, either you have a hidden agenda, or there are some things you didn’t learn when you were chasing that degree. Frankly, I’m not impressed. It could be that maybe you’ve been exposed to some utopians and you soaked up a bad case of chronic utopianitis. Get with the program, Sam, or consider
    sucking up to Obummer and his lemmings. What you did is indefensible.

      On this I give credit to Gingrich as he is cunning enough to realize that any debate between himself and O will be skewed.

        I think there is only one word to describe why he will not!! COWARDICE!!!

        • Doc Sarvis

          You got that right.

    I doubt Newt will get the opportunity to debate with Obama in a presidential debate in the first place but to be whining already about this indicates to me he knows he will not do well in that debate. Newt has his own baggage to carry and we do not need his decisions as president.

    Next he will ask for a list of the questions in advance so he can do a little editing.This sounds a lot like Willard Romneys tax returns that he furnished for this year, but refuses to show the real deal of years past.
