Once again, Newt uses his jujitsu against a partisan media attack:
"I am tired of the elite media protecting Barack Obama by attacking Republicans."
Newt did the viewers a great service by forcing John King out of left-wing hack mode and into the role of humble moderator.
One of the four men in the debate could become the next president of the United States, but instead of discussing issues of national importance (which might make Barack Obama look bad), CNN was launching partisan attack, wasting valuable time on old tabloid gossip.
Newt changed the tone for the better, for the rest of the debate.
Newt hasn't earned my coveted endorsement, but I think he won the day.
