Newt To Obama: Let's Debate, You Can Use Your Teleprompter
"I already said that if he wants to use a teleprompter, then it would be fine with me. It has to be fair. If you [were] to defend ObamaCare, wouldn't you want a teleprompter?" Gingrich asked.

"Now, just for a second I'm going to go in the detour and I'll try to explain why I've been and he'll say yes. There are two reasons. The first, is ego. Can you imagine him looking in the mirror? Graduate from Columbia, Harvard Law, editor of the Law Review journal. [Against] the greatest articulator in a Democratic book?"

"How is he going to say that he's afraid to be on the same podium as a West Georgia College student?"

#1  Why even have Obama show up? Why not just debate the teleprompter? It would be a great stunt, and it's something you could actually make happen.

#2  Why not just debate the teleprompter?

Not a fair match-up, Teleprompter would win. It already knows the answers Obama would give.

#3  I recall an election in Nevada many years ago. A candidate couldn't get his opponent to debate so he ran a commercial featuring an empty seat. "Empty Seat" got something like 20 write in votes.

#4  "Not a fair match-up, Teleprompter would win. It already knows the answers Obama would give."

That's why the Teleprompter would lose...

The fall of Fast and Furious

#1  the AZ Republic pooh-poohs the theory that F&F was a scheme to create such havoc in Mexico with US guns that Obama could drive through new gun control laws. That is obviously the case, since they didn't track any guns past the border. Also, they never note that Bush Admin's gunwalker scheme worked WITH Mexican authorities, didn't keep them in the dark like F&F

#2  I have to admit that I skimmed the article and posted it because it looked like a long re-cap of what we know so far. It's a shame that the AZ Republic has chosen to advance the official false-equivalency narrative of the MSM palace guard - but not a shock.

#3  To his credit, Mr. Wagner tried very hard to be impartial. It's too bad he failed.

#4  Gun control has been on the Obama administration agenda although being flying under the radar. Gun control is not generally held in high esteem by most Americans other than the left. I've heard some Democrats recently trying to justify stronger gun control laws on the basis of F & F. What is really needed is to rein in a government who allowed F & F and the death of agents to occur.
