There has been approximately 200 Republican debates(joke), and until Newt had a legitimate chance of winning, no one cared about the debate rules. Brian Williams either decided that he couldn't defend his idiotic questions like Juan Williams and John King, or Brian Williams decided to give Mitt Romney an advantage. Either Brian Williams is a stupid cowardly "journalist" or he put his thumb on the debate scale. I don't believe Williams is a coward or he couldn't handle Newt in verbal combat. If I'm correct, then there is only one conclusion. Williams wanted to take the crowd out of the debate because Newt had been better at playing the crowd. And by my standards, Brian Williams and Mitt Romney ganged up on Newt Gingrich. I'm sure like Mitt's Super PAC, Williams and Romney didn't coordinate this attack but none the less it was an unfair attack.
Mitt Romney is a seasoned politician who has been running for president for at least 4 years. He has given hundreds of speeches to audiences of every size. If he can't deliver an applause line to Red Meat Republican crowd, than does anyone believe he deserves the Republican nomination. For the last 6 months the Republican electorate has bounced around from Michele Bachmann to Herman Cain to Rick Santorum because they inherently know that Mitt Romney is a flawed candidate. Now that the voting has started, it's absolutely clear that Republicans don't want Mitt Romney. But Brian Williams, Wall Street, and the New York media refuse to let the 99% choose their leaders. Brian Williams owes Newt Gingrich, the Republican Party, and the American people an apology.
