Gingrich Defends Mourdock’s Rape Remarks: ‘Get Over It,’ Obama Is The Real Radical On Abortion

Source: TPM

On the Sunday talk show circuit, Newt Gingrich defended Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock of Indiana for his remarks about abortion and rape, referring to the controversy as “nonsense” and calling on President Obama’s campaign to “get over it.”

“If you listen to what Mourdock actually said, he said what virtually every Catholic and every fundamentalist in the country believes, life begins at conception,” Gingrich said on ABC’s “This Week.” “Now, this seems to be fixated by the Democrats, but the radical on abortion is Obama, who as a state senator voted three times in favor of allowing doctors to kill babies in the eighth and ninth month who were born, having survived late-term abortion.”

He was among several Romney surrogates to downplay the importance of Mourdock’s remarks to the presidential race on Sunday.

At a debate last Tuesday, Mourdock said, “I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” The day after, he stood by his opposition to abortion in the case of rape and incest, but clarified that he was merely trying to convey his belief that life is a gift from God.

“If there was any interpretation other than what I intended, I really regret that,” he said.

Mitt Romney said he disagrees with Mourdock’s comments. The Obama campaign has worked to tar Romney with the remarks, demanding that he drop his support for the Senate candidate. Gingrich called on the president’s re-election team to let it go.

“ also immediately issued a clarification saying he was referring to the act of conception, and he condemned rape,” the former House speaker said. “Romney has condemned — I mean, one part of this is nonsense. Every candidate I know, every decent American I know condemns rape. OK, so why can’t people like Stephanie Cutter get over it? We all condemn rape. Now let’s talk about whether we also condemn killing babies in the eighth and ninth month.”

4. Now let's talk about

whether we condemn taking food stamps away from hungry children, not to mention education and the right to grow up in a world where they aren't sent off to fight fake wars and when 210 degrees is considered a nice summer day.

How about that, Newt? Your name fits you well, ya fucking lizard.

9. This man is a scourge to decency.

And aside from Reagan, the reason people think it is okay to spit on the poor and that it's okay to be assholes devoid of compassion or humanity. He is morally bankrupt and basically a piece of shit excuse for a human being. I hope I live long enough to see the last of these old, decrepit, scumsucking patriarchal fuckers buried, and the top of their graves salted. Better yet, seal Gingrich and Limbaugh in a lead box and shoot them into space.

11. They certainly are drawing the lines starkly about this.


At the beginning of this election campaign, if a Democrat had said the GOP's stand on abortion was this barbaric and callous, and held so much contempt for women, would the public have believed them? No. Finally there's no doubt. GOP has been hiding this, up until when the Tea Partiers came in, now they're letting out.

And it's nauseating, but I hope the rest of the voters think so.

The Republican Party is completely out of touch with the 21st century especially with women's issues.

They are against women's reproduction rights.

NO WAY!

20. Gingrich changes positions on abortion as often as he changes religions.

Reminds me of his support for DOMA while having an affair.

He lacks credibility.

The New Republicans are no longer Conservative. They are ultra Conservative. The New Right is what they are. The positions they espouse are Un-American.

This the is the same guy the Catholic bishops welcomed into the church even though he had dumped two wifes and was on his third. He would only have been given a heartier greeting if he was a convicted pedophile.
