As Republicans fine tune their new conservative fascist movement in the presidential debates, it seems the television crowd has become desensitized to that threat over the last 5 months, and are now nodding in agreement that “leaders” are above such “destructive, vicious” topics.
Has anybody else noticed this frightening show of repressive power?
Newt Gingrich tapped back into the deep reservoir of resentment in American conservatism Thursday night by lecturing a debate moderator … CNN's John King (who) … chose to ask Gingrich about his ex-wife with his very first question of the night, "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," Gingrich said. "And I am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that" … the crowd in the debate hall rose and gave Gingrich a standing ovation … "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. I am, frankly, astounded that CNN would take trash like that and use it to open a presidential debate," he said.
Gingrich went back to hitting the media, saying that ABC News didn't quote his friends because "they would like to attack any Republican."
If there weren't enough BS in the above Gingrich rant, Newt gave them one more chuck of red meat:
"I'm tired of the elite media protecting Barack Obama by attacking Republicans," Gingrich concluded, drawing more enthusiastic cheers inside the hall.
And Austin Barbour, one of Romney's national finance chairmen, said that "a candidate's personal background should and is considered by voters."
"Personal principles matter to voters. Don't attack the moderator for trying to let the voters hear your response on issues that matter to voters," Barbour told HuffPost.
