Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he wants to be fair with President Obama in anticipated debates if he’s the GOP presidential nominee – so he’ll let Obama use a teleprompter.

The president, who is notorious for using a teleprompter for even the most “impromptu” remarks, likely will need electronic help defending Obamacare, Gingrich joked recently.

Gotta like Newt for telling it like it is.

LOL............Newt Puke Gingrich will be the nail in the coffin for the US.. The guy is as slimey as Obummer. But I would pay damn good money to see him hand Obama his rear end in the debate. Make no mistake about Newt he is smart and cunning. Obama won't stand a chance with him in debates. LOL...............good stuff.

Perhaps you preferred the gaffes or George W Bush to this?

I'm sure Obama is looking forward to debating Newton, or any of the other clowns for that matter!

How else is Obama going to remember Obama-care's intricacies and Dodd-Frank's ridiculousness?

Probably the same way that every Presidential candidate remembers things during a debate.

Other than you guys wanting something to whine about, do either of you have a point? Debates are nothing new. The HRA was not come magical piece of legislation. There were lots of different complex laws passed before by incumbents.

Out of curiosity, do either of you even have health insurance or do you just leach off of the system?

If Newt beats Willard, Obama will make him look worst than he did Hilary and McCain. It's like a red-neck myth that Obama can't debate.

Newt supporters could save themselves quite a bit of money, just likeCain supporters. Newt is in this to gain publicity, speaking engagements, books, only a fool would send him a check. He is the ultimate hypocrite whether it be sitting in judgement of Clinton for extramarital affairs, crticizing insiders from the beltway or as of late profits from Fannie Mae.

Yes Obama uses a telepromter but he is rather good on his feet when need be, no need to worry, Newt will be gone early next year on to his next speaking engagements.

Newt is just puffing out his chest for now. If he gets the nomination, his time will come.
