COULTER: All he did was say "Do you want to respond?" And by the way, ABC was the first one to start reading from the Star report. They're the ones who had the first interview with Jesse Jackson mistress. They are not playing favorites here, by the way.
O'REILLY: I didn't say they were playing favorites. I just said the timing of it.
COULTER: It's the biggest story in the media.
The idea that he wouldn't be asked about that, and are you going to defend him on denouncing Bret Baier's completely legitimate question?
O'REILLY: I'm not going to defend anybody on anything. It's not my job to do that.
COULTER: The point is he is abusing --
O'REILLY: My job is to point out --
COULTER: He's abusing a real issue.
O'REILLY: Yes, we've got that point. Here is my job, my job is to be fair, all right? And he was ambushed by this, by ABC and by the lead question, that's not the most important question of day.
COULTER: Was he ambushed by--
COULTER: Wait, wait, wait.
O'REILLY: That question could have been asked --
COULTER: Ok, I'm moving on. I'm moving on. I disagree. We're moving on now. I disagree, we're moving on.
Was he ambushed by, you know, "FOX AND FRIENDS" on Saturday asking him to respond to, you know, the ethics violations?
O'REILLY: No. That was a legitimate --
COULTER: Well, he starts screaming at "FOX AND FRIENDS" and I thought Fox was fair and balanced. I'm getting sick of this because this is a real issue and you should care about this. And right wingers should care about this. But most importantly right wingers, who care, just close your eyes, look up at Newt and Callista, and think to yourself, are these people ever going to be president and first lady?
Because the answer is no, America, we need to get independent voters. He cannot possibly win.
O'REILLY: If they ride a populous wave. If they ride a populous wave and Romney doesn't come and bring something to stop them, they could get it.
COULTER: No, no. He can never be president.
O'REILLY: Look, I think the odds are still with Romney, I think to be fair he's got -- those are the odds.
COULTER: Look, after a few years when he was speaker--
O'REILLY: Gingrich did some serious damage to the Romney campaign in South Carolina, that's a fact.
O'REILLY: Last word. Last word.
COULTER: Look, he has only been elected in one small little Republican district. That's the only way he has shown that he can be elected any place. After a few years -- hang on, I get the last word.
O'REILLY: Do you change in Florida --
COULTER: After a few years as Speaker not only did this whole party turn against him saying you're road kill and you're ruining the Republican Party, but the vast majority of Americans in polls said he was scary and extremist, out of touch. Right now he's unfavorable --
O'REILLY: We get you don't like him.
COULTER: No, I don't like Obama, and this is going to be an historic landslide if Gingrich is the candidate.
O'REILLY: Ok. Ann Coulter everybody, e-mail her directly.
