    It's about time you took "Gangrich" sorry "Gingrich" to task. It was wrong that he made you a target, the question you asked was fair. "Character is very important in this election, afterall I am surprised the "right christian conservatives are willing to over look his character flaws, being a life long christian myself, I can understand 1 unfaithful indiscretion and accepting forgiveness , but beyond that , this is a pattern of lying , with no convection , but to himself,s and his ambition, and doing anything to acheive his "Grandious" goals.. John ,keep up the good work.

    Sure would be nice if someone would remind Democrats like Nancy Pelosi that part of Congress is controlled by Democrats. The "do nothing Congress" is a Congress which has a Senate which has been controlled by Democrats since 2006. And I believe it's been 1000 days since that Democrat controlled Senate has passed a budget, including the time it was a filibuster proof majority. Why won't the media tell the public that?

    Why is no one explaining to Newt, in response to his self righteous indignation, that the reason he is being asked about his affairs and allegations of sexual deviance is because those are the very things that he has used to attack his political enemies in the past. Will someone at CNN ask him how he could have claimed that Bill Clinton was not fit to lead the country because of his infidelity when He, Newt has been unfaithful to HIS WIVES. If he thought that Clinton was not fit to lead the country because he cheated on his wife, does he not think he is also unfit to lead? He did the same thing! Why is no one making this point with him and making him accountable for this hypocrisy? I find his being offended by John's question at the debate disingenuous at best and it made him look like a liar backing out of being caught in a lie by attacking his accuser. He never answered the question.

    Good job John for calling Newt out on slamming you for the SC debate question! It's very true that the media is biased (no doubt about it, because i'm a huge Ron Paul supporter) but I don't feel that your question was in any way biased asking that question. The way he attacked you and didn't answer the question should have spoke volumes. I don't really understand how he won South Carolina and in fact I find it odd and at the same time disturbing. I don't ever really find you to be biased. Just keep 'em honest with Ron Paul. Take care.
