Newt’s Ex: Newt Gingrich wanted an “open marriage”….anyone surprised?

Newt’s ex-wife (there are so many) has made some shocking claims about her husband’s actions while they were married. Rumors are swirling that he wanted an “open marriage” while married to his second wife, and his ex has apparently revealed as much in an unaired interview with ABC NEWS. That network is embroiled in an ethics debate about airing it before the South Carolina primary, but is anyone really that surprised that Newt Gingrich may be a bad guy? But hey…he might be able to beat Obama (yeah, right) so people STILL support him!

Watch a preview of the interview from ABC News below:

The Blaze reports:

Brian Ross, ABC’s chief investigative reporter, told WMAL-RADIO’s “Morning Majority” program that the bombshell news set to be released by Marianne Gingrich is that her ex-husband wanted an “open marriage.”

“He came to her and said, ‘I want to stay married to you and still have an affair with Calista, his current wife,” said Ross. “According to Marianne, he said ‘You need to share me,‘ and she said ’I don’t want to share,’ and the marriage ended,” he added.

    I share Glenn’s immense frustration at people who try to defend Gingrich. I am equally appalled at the fact that Tea Party leaders in SC have come out in favor of him.

    Sad truth is that most voters have lost the ability to distinguish between reality and political theater. Newt Gingrich is the William Shakespeare of political theater.

    Newt Gingrich is done. He will be the butt of late night comics for the next 10 years. Perhaps Newt would like to re-word his comment “Sarah Palin will play a major role in my administration.” The only question now is how many women did Newt actually “share” himself with? Will there be a steady drip of old mistresses a la Herman Cain? Is Rick Perry ready to tell voters to throw their hard earned money at a candidate who has no prayer of beating One-bama?  Keep fighting the good fight, Glenn.

  • landofaahs

    Yep. and if corporations are people, Mitt Romney is a serial killer.

    Suprised no. Neither am I suprised by the way the media of the left is determined to destroy each and every Republican candidate to clear the way for Obama-reelection this year. I seen on drudge that the story on Gingrich was held for several days ahead of being released, just to time it for the primary held yesterday.

    Why are people supporting Gingrich anyway? He is a proven big government agent, and now his own credibility has once again been put to the sword?

    We need one in the White House who will do more that beat Obama; they need to also restore the nation, and begin undoing the nightmare of Progressivism that ones like Obama and Newt represent – Communism or Facism; that is the choice between those two we will face.

    On multiple occasions Glenn calls Gingrich a Big Government Progressive
    by exposing Gingrich’s support for individual mandate in the 90′s.  Yet
    Glenn fails to mention that Romney INSTITUTED a individual mandate in
    Mass.

    Glenn constantly exposes how Gingrich believes Government
    has a role in job creation.  Yet he fails to mention that Newt’s belief
    is that governments job is to create ENVIRONMENT for business by lowered
    taxes and De-regulation.
    Romney says EVERY DEBATE that he supports
    Government stimulus through subsidies, but he believes stimulus should
    be given fairly across the spectrum so Government doesn’t pick winners
    or losers.  WHO IS MORE PROGRESSIVE.  THINK FOR YOURSELF AND ASK THAT
    QUESTION.

    Secondly Glenn has bought into the LIE that Gingrich’s
    PACs ad against Bain capital is “anti-freemarket/capitalism”.  THIS IS
    DISHONEST AT BEST AND MANIPULATION AT WORST.  If Glenn used this same
    logic he would call romney an anti-capitalist for his PACs negative ad
    in iowa LYING that Newt was lobbyist.
     
    TO CALL GINGRICH A BGP WHILE IGNORING THE FACT  THAT ROMNEY IS 15times MORE PROGRESSIVE IS DISHONEST AND UNETHICAL.

    I NEVER EXPECTED GLENN TO GIVE ANYONE “special” TREATMENT, THIS IS WHY I HAVE LOST RESPECT AND TRUST IN GLENN. 

    IF YOU THINK FOR YOURSELF AND DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS YOU WILL REALIZE THAT MY STATEMENTS ARE STATEMENTS OF FACT.

    Ron “Code Pink Crazy” Paul/Rand Paul v. The Three RINOs.

    No contest.

    America will recover and thrive economically under Paul/Paul.

    Four more years of Obama constrained by a hostile congress = eight years of a RINO White House with a complicit RINO controlled congress = bankrupt America.

    Gingrich does not give a rats a– about anyone but Newty, he is obsessed with one thing: beating Clinton at perpetrating cynicism fueled fraud on what they both consider an idiot electorate.  F’ing things is the only thing that drives the megalist of  megalomaniacs, Clinton and Gingrich.  Men this depraved are never satiated, only temporarily occupied.  Gingrich will do to America what he did to Marianne (and to himself primarily), he cannot control it, it’s in his DNA.

    America can recover militarily from Ron Paul.  Without the economic salvation only Ron Paul is certain to provide, America, 4 years from now, will be as potent and important to world stability as the USSR.

    Don’t regret missing the lifeboat, Ron Paul is offering.

    Gingrich is a counterfeit conservative, he flip flopped on a lot of important issues, he is not a conversative.  Gingrich was earning millions advising Freddie Mac while FM was ruining the housing mkt and causing millions of homeowners to lose their homes and life savings.  Romney is clean compared to dirty Newt,, Newt says whatever he thinks the crowd wants to hear—the way he responded to Juan Williams at Mondays debate, with inuendos of race, played to the racial SC crowd.  Newt will not get the black vote–he will not win against Obama.  I have watched and listened to Newt, I have done a lot of reading, Newts mother was bi-polar and I believe Newt is as well.

    It is absolutely none of my business nor anyone else’s what Newt did in his marriage.  If his wife agreed to it, so be it.  If anyone wants a candidate with a picture perfect record, ask th Pope or Jimmy Graham to join the race.  Newt has accomplished more in government than any other candidate – positive results too.  He can “clobber” Obummer in any debate.  Romney, stutters and becomes flustered too much – couldn’t hold a candle to Newt.  Does everyone want another 4 years of Obummer?  Well, stop crucifying all the republican candidates.  IT’s nothing more than fuel for the democrats to use against us.  Before attacking another republican candidate, stop and think for a minute of the lies and deceit from obummer and the fact our country can’t stand another 4 from him.

  • Ryan Frederick

    not saying what he says was right in saying that. he just anti war if you want to see a true neo nazi Ciaran Palmer who thinks the Jews started world war 2 and watchman on the wall who denies the holocaust. Ron Paul has crazy ideas about Binladin World war 2 and Iran but lets not forget the nazis killed millions of Jews and he has yet to harm one.

  • Robert Starkand

    There is a difference between Gingrich and Clinton.  Clinton was always a horndog and Hillary always knew that, but married him anyway.  She left her boyfriend, who from what I read was a good looking, intelligent and idealistic guy, believing in the same causes, but he wasn’t ambitious.  Clinton was ambitious and she had ambition to match his.  They became a power seeking couple and as we know, are very successful at it.  They are very successful political animals.

    On the other hand, Gingrich chooses women he can dominate, which he did and still does.  He acts the same way in his public life.  He lost his Speakership because he alienated the people who worked with him and for him.  Once he completed his Contract with America, his political choices were all over the map; conservative, moderate, progressive, whatever.  His management style was chaotic.  And he attacked friend and foe alike.  This behavior pattern continues today.  He blasts Paul Ryan as a social engineer,  cutting off his legs as he was trying to push an agenda of cap, cut and balance, and he took broadside shots at free enterprise when attacking Romney.  Ask yourself what has changed with this man?  He will be the issue in the election, and when he is elected, he will alienate and perhaps cripple his allies, rendering himself ineffective and perhaps irreversibly damaging our cause.  The warning signs are there.

    Rumors.  Lies.  Scandals.  We cannot judge the soul.

    Regardless of what has happened in the past (and we all have one), the power of repentance and forgiveness cannot be overlooked (or forgotten).

    Everyone has been there:  face down in the mud.  There are two paths, wallow in your failings or ask for God’s help to pull you out.

    There are two paths for us as well:  Do we grind Mr. Gingrich’s face back into the mud or do we help pull him out?

    Newt has repented, been forgiven and hass changed his life — those who embrace rumors, lies and scandals are the ones face down in the mud.  Perhaps Mr. Gingrich will help pull them out.

    God is watching.

    And the comments are from an “ex” wife. How many ex’s are kind? None that I know of. She is bitter, and it reminds me of all of the women that came out with claims against Cain. Newt was an ass to his former wives, yes, but why are conservatives held to a higher standard that are liberals? All I should have to say is Clinton. Leave him alone, lets beat Obummer.

    It is my understanding that Newt became a Christian later in life. Everyone can change their lives and strive to do right thing. Who are any of us to judge this man? It would be a shame to cause the best man to lose because of past indiscretions. We would lose a good president in my opinion. Newt is smart and appears to have grown in wisdom through the years, as all of us hopefully will do. He has proven that he can work across the isle to get things done. I like his ideas and his knowledge. He is also a good debater.

    Glenn, I have a great deal of respect for you, however; I disagree with you on this one.

    So his second wife got a marriage proposal while he was still married to number one.  That doesn’t give her a lot of credit since she must have been dating him knowing he was married.  I would find it hard to pay much attention to her story.  I think she is bitter because someone did to her what she did to someone else

    Who  cares about Gingrich’s past?  It has nothing to do with his intelligence.  The longer one lives the more opportunity one has to make  personal mistakes.  By the time Romney is 68 who knows what mistakes he me may make. Gingrich is brilliant and would be great in a debate with Obama.  The Dems fear Gingrich.

    Love you, Glenn..but I think you are are full of it about Newt.

    I am not surprised that he told his second wife he wanted an open marriage, sounds like Newt, afterall he is an ideas man. Probably think that it is a good idea, to have his cake an eat it. He is a hypocrite and an arrogrant man at that. Hey lets, do something unsavoury and ask God for forgiveness, everything would be honky dory!!! The Speaker has not changed at all. His recent nastiness, attacking capitalism (and on the verge of damaging the GOP for his own gain, is disgusting), then back tracked subtly to say that he was challenging Gov Romney’s character, is so Newt. So when the tables are turned, we are not supposed to challenge his character?? I dont think Mr Gingrich has the temperament to be POTUS

     I wont be voting for him in the primary but if he is the ultimate GOP nominee, sure I will vote for him (hope it does not come to that) just hope he does not go around trying to be clever and end up sticking his foot in his mouth!!!
     
    I hate to sound nasty but Governor Romney, didnt have extra marital affairs and has been married to his wife for many many yrs (and hey he is a Mormon too and they are ???allowed to have many wives?) and is still obviously in love with her. Now that is a good judge of someone’s character!!!!

    Once a crowd of bloodthirsty self righteous religious people dragged a woman into the market place where Jesus was talking. They asked Jesus, “What should we do with this woman? She was caught in adultery, in the very act. According to the laws of Moses she should be stoned. But what do you say?” Jesus said nothing. He bowed down to the ground and began writing in the dirt. When they continued to press him he said, “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone.” From the oldest to the youngest they began to slink away until there was none left. In the end Jesus was left alone with the woman and asked her “where are thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, “no man Lord.” He answered “Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more.”  I’m sorry but I think the most miserable folks on the planet are those self righteous holier than thou hypocrites who just love looking down their self righteous noses at others when they themselves are just as guilty as those men in the story. Romans 3:23 say “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” God says in Isaiah that self righteous people are a smoke in His nostrils, a fire that burneth the whole day.”  Where is mercy and forgiveness?

    I don’t think that Gingrich can harm the GOP ship that is rotten and sinking.  Our problems are RINOS and big government control freaks.  Gingrich has had problems in that area as well but remains our best choice at defeating our current POTUS.  Reagan began his career with liberal leanings and changed many of them as he grew and learned.  Do we really want anyone who takes a stand at an early age and never changes?  If so,…who might that person be?  There are no conservative, squeaky-clean candidates who are in the race and electable.  Gingrich is our best choice and that’s no BS.  Mitt is a disaster. Obama will eat his lunch and we all know it.

      Somehow I feel that alot of people are missing the fact  (You too Glenn) that Newt did not yet respond to this, and maybe there is another side to the story. I thought someone said he had already asked for a divorce and she said no, maybe they already had their problems and he wanted an end with her for a long time but she for her own reasons wanted to hold on so he could not be with someone else, hence the remarks ” you will have to share me then”. Just saying you never know what went on behind closed doors. I believe in the fact that people gain an inner peace with GOD when they become more mature, and maybe like you Glenn that is what happened to Newt!!

    Just in this campaign he professed to the loftiness of not running a negative campaign, but as soon as that didn’t work out he abandoned the principle he played verbal homage to.  Same behavior as abandoning his ex-wife – to whom he had vowed to faithful to. 
    He is an eloquent orator, but inside he appears have a lot lacking.  I don’t trust him.

    We know Gingrich was at least partly responsible for his failed second marriage by nature of his many comments about it but in the end this is a one sided interview of a bitter person (rightly or wrongly) conducted by an agenda driven “news” industry that did all but ignore or mock the accusers of Clinton.

    God is watching, but if we don’t wake up and recognize that a man whose judgement would lead him to ruin his family through an affiar and at the EXACT same time be leading the charge to impeach Bill Clinton and feel justified is a man who has a weak moral compass.  I’m not a Bill Clinton fan by any means, but Newt’s scathing attack to attempt to hold the President to one standard and at the same time be committing the same moral crime is the definition of hypocrisy.  He’s an eloquent pretender.

    It’s also worth stopping and thinking — what is it that has the Republican Party getting such lousy candidates?  You deserve, better — or do you?

    Newt can still easily win both the nomination and the Presidency.  Why?

    Because all he has to do to win is remind voters where their self-interests lay.  He needs to espouse Conservatism, like he did at the debate the other night, and he needs to stay on message.  That’s all he needs to do.  

    Little history lesson:  

    In ancient Greece, war was brewing between Corcyra and Corinth.  They both sent diplomats to Athens for support.  Corinth had the advantage, because they had been allies with the Athenians in the past in their struggles with Sparta.  The assembly was gathered and they would hear both men make their pitch separately.  

    The first was Corinth.  The Corinthian diplomat reminded Athens of their long friendship, and of all the times Corinth was their to render aid and assistance on their behalf against Sparta, costing numerous lives and lots of treasure.  It was only fair that Athens show some gratitude.  

    Then came the Corcyran diplomat.  He said that Athens and Corcyra had been enemies in the past.  They were rivals for control of the Aegean Sea, and the two sides had come to blows many times.  However, if Athens were to ally with Corcyra, their combined factions would have the largest combined navy in the entire Mediterranian, and together they could expand their domain.  

    After that pitch, and a bit of a discussion in the assembly, the Athenians voted to side with Corcyra and drop Corinth.  

    Why?  First, Corinth tried to appeal to gratitude and memories of friendship that Corinth and Athens had.  But nobody likes to be reminded of any debt of gratitude they have to pay.  Corcyra gave Athens a more enticing offer, which lay in their self-interests. 

    Newt has baggage, but compared to the worst president in American history, he’s a saint, and what’s more he can entice voters with certain things, such as lower taxes and the repeal of Obamacare, not to mention a more aggressive stance against Iran and our other enemies.  Yes, he’s a Progressive, but at least he’s not Obama, and he’s on America’s side.

What took place in another persons marridge is none of your selfrightous business! you my freind are employing Obama tactics to smear Mr. Gingrichs` reputation while you try to get Romney elected! A fellow Morman. See, the ubber rich(glen beck) want to keep this ticket split so Romney can be the nominee by default. It is clear that most conservatives don`t trust romney! he`s really just a rich liberal that can be handled in the white house. Newt Gingrich has irrefutable proof of being qualified to create jobs, Unite both parties, ballance budgets, and was embraced and  had the trust of one of our greatest presidents in our history, Ronald Reagon! they need Santorum in there because if it comes down to Romney or Gingrich, Romneys` toast! Newt Gingrich has been there and done that, He wont let any of these guys handle him! and the establishment is terrified of Newt! thats` why they keep attacking him personally because none of them even comes close to his experience! We are not looking for someone too marry my sister, We are looking for someone to take back Our Country!

    Hello America,

    All the GOP candidates are flawed.  The Democrat candidate is extremely flawed.  What do we want, flawed or extremely flawed.  Newt is a Washington insider political animal, but more conservative than Mitt.  Rick Santorum makes bad choices, but is more conservative than Mitt or Newt.  Ron Paul has some good traits but very scary bad traits.  We dropped the ball by not moving Michelle Bachmann forward.  She is more conservative than all of them put together. 

    Of the four left in the race, Newt is by far the best in debate and would use B. Hussein as a mop in debates.  Romney can hold his own, and as long as he didn’t get flustered and keep on message he could make B. Hussein look like a Sophmore in the high school debate club. 

    Our choices aren’t great, far from it.  But it is always what is served up to us.  The only hope we have is to front load the Congress with as good American First people as the Tea Party can find then hold their feet to the fire to ensure we move backward to founding principles, then forward after being assured our representatives really do catch on.  You can tell by their action.

    Bottom line is we need a Congress that will rake Obama and Company over the coals if they continue to destroy our system that has worked for us since its inception.  That is only if by the off chance this freedom stealing, constitution destroying thug manages to pull off another victory.  With the presidential candidate hand we have been dealt, we have to concentrate on Congress to hunker down and ensure checks and balances from whoever is elected.

    As far a character counting.  I think the Clinton’s proved that most Americans have gone to far off the moral charts that it really doesn’t count as it should and used to.  These miscreant’s behavior will be settled when their RECKONING (account) comes due.

    Ok, so the idea is shocking to most conservative voters, I understand totally.  Clinton had an ‘open marriage’, it was just not defined as such.  Most of our Presidents have been known to philander while in and before being in the Oval Office.  This is an issue between Newt and his wife, not one to titillate the general public with.  What if Newt likes wine?  I know many staunch conservatives that believe that is wrong.  What if he has engaged in some other risque sex acts?  WHO CARES.  We are not looking to elect the bedroom of a man to be the leader, we are looking for his ability to govern according to the Constitution and to get our country back on track.  I know this will be big news, because of the naughty aspect to it, but the focus on it sickens me.  Focus on the issues and not the personal habits and lives of the candidates.  B

         In defense of Newt Gingrich, this is my opinion of people who stick their
    noses in where it doesn’t belong. A marriage is still between a man and a woman
    and no one has a right to know what goes on in their private lives, also who knows
    whether this woman or any other woman has a vindictive heart or not.
    You cannot believe everything you hear, and only half of what you see.
    Lastly: And no one has the right to judge Newt or anyone else for that matter.
    If you walk on water throw a stone at him, if you don’t, then keep your mouth shut,
    and keep your opinions to yourself.

    We have been loyal listeners and followers of Glenn Beck for a long time.  We live in California but we have been followers to Salt Lake City, the Kennedy Center and the Mall in Washington, DC and anywhere else we could get to listen to you but I am really feeling lately that I’m on the wrong trail here.  I bought and read your book SEVEN..actually even led a weekly study on it because I was so impressed and felt it could help a lot of people…and it seems to me you’re being pretty hypocritical here.  It’s okay to confess everything, find your Heavenly Father and change your life but it isn’t okay for somebody else to do it?  Could it possibly be that Newt has done the same thing?  When you made fun of Amway on one of your shows, I was disappointed; when you came out in support of Michelle Bachman, I was really disappointed but those disappointments were nothing compared to how I feel about your treatment of Newt…as well as Ms. Cupp’s stupid antics the other day.  I’m sure there are a lot of people who disagree with me but I am an American…not republican or democrat…I love and support the constitution and I want my grandkids to grow up with the rights we now enjoy.  I thought you were fair and open minded but your constant criticism and unfair treatment of Newt hs proven me wrong.  I know it won’t make much difference to you but just FYI, I will not be listening to your show for now.  God bless you and God bless America!!

    We all have a chance at redemption and I think Newt found his.  I’m willing to believe him, because I know Jesus can change our lives.   I heard him say he is very happy in his marriage, and looking at the X who’s prob. being paid a bunch to come out with this new (old) news, she looks quite angry and has a bone to pick.

    If Newt’s daughters forgive him, and GOD forgives him, he deserves a chance to prove it to the rest of the unbelievers.

    I’m not entirely sure how this is new? After all, in a way an affair is a non-consentual open marriage so are we supposed to be surprised he wanted an open marriage? He was already living it.

    Newt Gingrich wanted an open marriage?!?
    Newt’s ex-wife (there are so many) has made some shocking claims about her husband’s actions while they were married. Rumors are swirling that he wanted an “open marriage” while married to his second wife. It defies logic and the clear physical evidence that more than one woman would even be remotely interested in hopping aboard the Newt express — but apparently that’s the case.

    America is bankrupt and unless we get a better leader,

    While in the House of Reps,  Newt did a lot of damage.
    Please, please, please, look up his record.  His marriages
    are not the important issue here.  It is how he performed in
    and out of our government.  If Newt wins as the nominee, he
    will lose the election as more and more information comes
    out about what he did as the Speaker of the House and his
    shennanigans when he had to leave the House of Reps. and
    pay a $300,000 fine to the government. 
    You all must, must, must check his record.  I believe you all
    who like Newt will change your mind about him when election
    time comes.
    The fact that the union is backing Newt should sound alarm
    bells in your heads.  If you want to help America, there are
    3 candidates left.  I know who I am voting for but if I have to
    I would vote for Romney even though I have misgivings about
    his approval of Healthcare when Gov. of Massachusetts.
    I don’t care how much money he made.  I don’t want his money
    and do not begrudge him how much he made.  I did not earn his
    money.  I am an average middle class American way below the
    middle, middle class.  I was taught when I was growing up that
    I should not covet my neighbors goods.  I hold to that tenet.
    Newt would do the same as Obama because he likes power.
    Please won’t you pray tonight and ask guidance from God.
    America should be the most important item on our minds
    right now.

    Beck clearly hasn’t learned about redemption.  Obviously, Jesus never redeemed Beck from his days of alcoholism.  This never-ending savagery of Newt is Beck’s obsession.  He fears anything other than a Romney-Obama ticket.  And, the smart people like Beck and others know Obama will clearly win.

    In all honesty, I doubt that Newt is in reality repentant. This change is undoubtedly simply a political ploy, to get elected. Remember he had to step down from being speaker, because of unethical practices. He was arrogant, power hungry, vindictive and angry.He was the type that strong armed others to get things his way. A few years ago in an interview he said it was his desiny to be President. I also remember in that same interview him stating it was time to fundamentally change how things were done in the country. The same words that the libs were using, which concerned me at the time. Then he supported cap and trade, and globel warming, yet they are allowing him to get away with claiming he is  a conservative, and accept his lame excuses. He has the ‘b_lls’ to claim others to be unethical when he has his past behind him. I’m waitting for others to step from the shadows. He cheated on two wives. Does anyone really think it would stop there? Or will that come out in the general election killing his chances to beat Obama. I’m sure they are beating the bushes for any others that can be used in that manner. It matters to me. And I trully would not want a homewrecker as first lady. It’s not as if she did not know. And if he had morality problems, it’s not likely to have stopped there. You know the Obamaites will hold on to anything like that until later too!

    I watched Glenn faithfully ever since CNN and read here from the first
    day till about a month ago.  Something has happened to Glenn because now
    all I see is drama and a hypocrite spirit.  Who are we to judge or gossip about anyone when it is strictly forbidden!  Why do I hear all the restoring courage, honor, God, etc when he doesn’t practice what he preaches.  I call myself a Christian so I had better act like it!

    The truth is, our society is going into the crapper in more ways than one. They will accept what they want to and ignore what they want to. They will accept twisted facts, because he is rich and they want to hate anyone that has been successful. Yet want to believe a man that has led a reprehensible and immoral life, and accept lame excuses. No wonder Obama was able to pull the wool over so many eyes.

    I used to listen to Glenn and watch him on TV for his political and historical analysis.  It was really disappointing to see his dislike of Newt become a personal attack based on the way Newt looks.  I wish Glenn would continue to analyze and be vocal about his research but I also wish he’d stick to a person’s experience, track record, ideology, and understanding of foreign affairs.  This ‘appearance attack’ lowers my respect for Glen.

    Geno, that is what I am have been trying to describe.  But even when he was preaching about restoring courage, etc., there was still something that didn’t set right with me, because of his lack of Christian ‘spirit’ in his language, for lack of a better way to put it.  I think that he has deceived a lot of people, while adding some truth in for good measure.

    I did not say Newt Gingrich was corrupt.  Much of his record as Speaker of the House
    is open records of which I personally didn’t like.  He was fined $300,000 by Congress
    for unethical behavior.
    He gives me the impression that he really does not love America as most of us do. 
    Check his record. 
    As Americans, we must coalisce around one man.  Right now the Republicans
    and Independents are being swayed by Newt’s oratory.  He won’t win when more
    people find out his positions on a majority of items he voted for when in Congress.
    Listen carefully to him in the debates.  He never really gives a good answer on
    what he will do for America.  A lot of platitudes.  I heard him on TV today and
    he said we must transform America without giving any details about what he
    meant.  Isn’t that how our current President was elected?  Many people
    misunderstood Pres. Obama.
    I have never once heard Newt say what he would do to get us out of this
    enormous deficit every year nor has he stated what he would do about
    America’s debt problem.  We must listen carefully to his words. 
    God Bless All of you.

    Romney took over 6 years out to solely focus on campaigning for a 4 year job.  In those 6 years, he and establishment (like Bush-Rove) worked to shape shift him into a fake conservative and set up meetings for him to buy endorsements from corrupt Republicans in congress and other political positions. 

    You are so caught up in his big empty rhetoric.  Much of it is stealing from Ron Paul.  Romney is for banks that too big to fail and bailouts and then suddenly in the last debate, he spoke Paul’s words literally word for word about clearing the market and debt and letting companies go bankrupt.  Yet, Romney has never apologized for supporting big bank bailouts.  To get a vote, now he wants to see like Paul. 

    You – meitis are part of America’s problem just as Bush and Romney and Obama and the congress with 10% approval.

    Excellent catch.  This is what he has spent the 6 last years doing in campaigning and preparing – by taking acting and modelling classes to redirect people’s attention from his terrible,liberal record as a governor and progressive views/positions from bank bailouts to romneycare to big government programs to racking up the debt even more.

    Glen says that Newt is a ‘dirtbag’. Well, God says that “there is none good, no not one”. Newt says that he has repented. Who are we to question that? I saw Glen say last night on Bill O’Reilly that he would vote for a shoe rather than Obama, so why is he saying such bad things about Newt. Say good things about the ones you like, but stop being so negative about the others.

    Dufus – Romney’s records are hidden.  He is not revealing his records at Bain, had his aides buy hardware during his time as Gov, and won’t show his tax returns.  At least you know Newt’s background and he doesn’t avoid/dodge questions.  I guess you like not knowing about the shady ways of politicians like Romney and his right hand people in media like Beck to protect him from exposing the sick Romeny that is far more corrupt and shady that Newt ever was and ever will be.

    Clinton cheated on his wife, and yet he is the only president to have balanced the budget and left with 66% approval rating.  Personal affairs should be separated from judging honesty in public office.

    Hillbilly trash looking to make a buck. ABC wants Romney, those liberal retards know he is the class warfare piñata that Obama can smack around. Newt new this crap was going to hit the fan, yet he still ran for president. Why? Perhaps his policies can help America? Maybe he actually has the problem solving skills to do something? I am completely disillusioned with this immature crap. How many great presidents through out history could actually hold up to the media scrutiny presented today? How has the great Obama, with his perfect marital status, done so far? Continue to waste your time with all the low brow entertainment. The distraction of the masses is turning our country into a circus.

    Gingrich has a history of infidelity and hypocrisy with his impeachment efforts against Clinton while he was duplicating Clinton’s sleaziness!!!  Romney has a history of fidelity and compassion towards his wife of 42 years while she was dealing with cancer and then multiple sclerosis!  He is a great man who serves others and only wants to serve his country by turning around our terrible economic and declining state–just as he served the state of Massachusetts and the USA by turning the Olympics around as they were in a terrible economic and scandalous state!

    This retread has no moral character. Throw the Republican country club playbook in the trash can, send Karl Rove packing and get back to actually looking out for the interest of American citizens instead of climbing over each other to appease La Raza for some mythical voting bloc that delivered a paltry 7 million votes out of 170 million in the last selection with heavy illegal alien participation. These cowards don’t get it — and why the dog and pony show before a cabal of liberal prick moderators?

    Since the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, Congress has passed seven amnesties:

    1). Immigration and Reform Control Act, 1986: A blanket amnesty for over 3 million illegal aliens. 2). Section 245(i) Amnesty, 1994: A temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens. 3). Section 245(i) Extension Amnesty, 1997: An extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994. 4). Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty, 1997: An amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America. 5). Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA), 1998: An amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti. 6). Late Amnesty, 2000: An amnesty for some illegal aliens who claim they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an estimated 500,000 illegal aliens. 7). LIFE Act Amnesty, 2000: A reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty, an estimated 1,000,000 illegal aliens.

    Newt Gingrich  supported them all.

    What we’re seeing is a blatant assertion of power by outsiders against the American nation. Are we kidding here? All one has to do is mention this illegal alien menace and you are designated the mahatma and dithyrambic inhumane right-winger or TEA Party wacko that La Raza ardently detests. Americans must allow tens of millions of illegal aliens unearned American citizenship and exclusive rights of the first-born with no more virtue than walking in or clearing a fence. We have voiced our opinions repeatedly, Gingrich has said it is being heartless, and even used the typical well-worn La Raza soundbites  — we will separate families. No sane people would leave their family behind. People illegally entering our country have no right to demand anything, or suggest how we should handle our affairs. It is not foolish to allow a demographic that considers Americans their enemy the privilege of being here?

    Newt Ginrich would rather pretend he’s a tough guy by disparaging and condescending black Americans instead. Yes, a real winner. Because Ginrich and those like of dance around the bonfires while holding hands with La Raza, we have nearly more illegal aliens in this country than the black population. A man out of touch with his country would only make the statements he has made. The people who go to Washington or State Capitals aren’t supposed to go there for the purpose of changing the electorate, or changing citizenship in a state or the country. Becasue then those people who are governing are governing against the people. I keep hearing discussions about the demographics of this nation and how its changing, how Latinos based on immigration and fraud-birth patterns have become the fastest growing demographic (of course no one mentions by illegal entry), and therefore, it is essential that if a political party wants to survive or a politician wants to survive, then they need to address this racist illegitimate group. This is quintessential racism that is destructive of the civil society. And we Americans, regardless of our race, regardless of our color, regardless of our heritage — we Americans — and by that I mean citizens and legal immigrants: We must fight this. All of us.

    Gingrich is the typical checker pants RINO politician who is prepared to destroy the fundamental nature of this society, in order to achieve short term electoral victory. Subversives do it with propoganda. They do it with race baiting. They do it with appeals to emotion, and passion. But I’m telling you right now, whether you’re a recent immigrant, legal, or a long time American citizen, this will destroy American society. The civil society. It is not humane, and it is not compassionate to destroy the American society. And its not racist to say no to La Raza and the deluge of illegal aliens pouring into this nation who demand we play ball or else.
    Our birthright is being deliberately sold from under us by meretricious snake oil hucksters who have no proof of purchase.

    And we are now on the verge of bequeathing our children and grandchildren the kind of society that we wouldn’t want to be born into — and it would not make a bit of difference if he was the President of the United States…

    Do you like being a moron?  So how can you say Romney is a crook when he hasn’t released his tax returns?   And hidden records at Bain?  Obviously, you do not have a clue about investments, or how business taxes are computed.  It’s idiots like you who spout this cr*p from the media, and don’t know a da*n thing about how it all works.  Where’s the proof that Romney did anything unethical, illegal, or immoral (unlike Gingrich who has the distinction of being the only Speaker kicked out by his own party). Romney used the laws on the books, and used perfectly legal tax allowances that businesses are allowed.  And I don’t care how much Newt “worked’ with Ronald Reagan–he is a slimebag, and is not fit for the presidency.  And it is a sad day if he is the best that the republicans can come up with.

    BTW, from your post, are you saying that Clinton is honest?  Are you delusional?  Review your history, you have obviously forgotten “Slick Willy” lying under oath…

    What is wrong with you? Sounds like your own personal issues haven’t been resolved. If you are looking for perfection, you are going to be disappointed. And a bad marriage doesn’t translate to being unable to function any other part of society. Your are all in a tizzy about someones decade old marriage… and not taken into account Newt’s entire career, wisdom, understanding of government inside and out. And just remember he had to work with Clinton the most immoral person WHILE IN OFFICE. And that makes a huge difference… Clinton was immoral, liar before during and after he left office along with his power hungry wife Hillary the Hun. Newt has more class and integrity than that.

    Class and integrity?  How do you figure?  That is a hoot.  Newt has stated that he “admires” Bill Clinton, and actually had a “crush” on him (his words, not mine).  If that isn’t a clue as to his character, I don’t know what is.  Of course there is no perfect candidate, but jeez, Gingrich is scraping the bottom of the barrel.  Romney or Santorum, or maybe it is time for a third party.  Gingrich cannot beat Obama, every poll existing attests to that fact.

His daughters have also called the claim categorically false.

    Pew Research reported today that 52% of Evangelical Prodesants thinks Mormons aren’t Christian. What they forgot to report is that the entire 52% are WRONG!

    PLEASE, PEOPLE, it is The Church of JESUS CHRIST – the “nickname” is Mormon. Go to their website lds.org – their Savior is Jesus Christ who atoned for the sins of the world by dying on
    the cross. Their faith teaches that the only way to Heaven is through the Atonment of Christ and NO other! Exactly how much more can be asked to say you’re a Christian?

    I know women and this wreaks of mostly BS. I’ve heard other women complain that their husbands say they “want them all the time too much”. My own kid’s girlfriend gets jealous and suspicious when he has a business meeting. It’s quite possible that he said “You’re too needy and want me around all the time and Colista doesn’t”. after he got caught having a girlfriend. Perhaps he just didn’t want a messy divorce in public or she didn’t want to give him a divorce and that statement was giving her a reason why he wanted to leave her. And she’s stretching the truth to make it seem like he wanted a formal mistress long term. . And GLENN, you know perfectly well that an open marriage is different than a married guy having a mistress. Regardless, I couldn’t care less. And I”m totally sick of Santorum …oh WAIT.

    My understanding is that Marianne was commiting adultery with Newt while he was still married to his first wife. Should she be suprised? Where is her condemnation? If she has asked for forgiveness like Newt  has, then there is no condemnation with Christ  for either of them. She should not be casting a stone.  I pray that she does some self-evaluations as to why she wont let this go. Bitterness is a poison that nobody should want. His past has no bearing on my decision.

    Hey Glenn, doesn’t Newt deserve the same foregiveness that you received?  I know you believe he is a progressive, but surprising that you question his character based upon the word of an ex-wife.  I too am divorced, but am an excellent father to my children and have supported them through thick and thin.  Yet if you were to ask my ex-wife, she’d tell you that I was right up there with Bin Laden.  Point – don’t believe the words of a bitter EX.

    Well here we go again to trust or not to trust.   Will people never learn? A man that lies wil steal and kill if he has to period. Clinton, Obama ,Gingrich, and 90 % of the Washington Establishment have lied to us for the last 50 or so years.

    Hey Glenn, how many mistakes have you made?  Alcoholic convert to Mormin… and we are supposed to believe you have repented and asked for forgiveness why?  Okay… not my business, but neither is Gingrich’s life with his ex-wife.  Let’s move on to more important topics in politics, not distractions and distortions of someones past… Did Newt associate with Billy Aires? Rev Wrong?  George Soros?  These I care more about than his “personal” life, but still are not my focus. He is not the perfect canidate, but he is better than Romney.  I’d take either over Obama any day though!!!

    Why are ya’ll gettin caught up in this tawdry mess of Newt principles – or lack thereof – the bottom line is he screwed another woman while he was married and then gave his wife a ” share me or divorce me ” ultimatum. One time i can understand ( the sex part at least, i don’t approve of it but i do understand it,  – ‘ the guy’s only human ‘ ) but twice - at the very least ! While i do not care one iota about his personal life - including his sex life, i think it’s a no brainer to deduce that a pattern of dishonorable and underhanded activity has taken place here. Between that and the fact that he was VERY instrumental in helping previous administrations screw Americans i really wonder how you can believe he’s changed !

    Judas was very sorry that he wasn’t accepted by the Christians or Pharisees, and felt so bad he was rejected, and went way beyond Peter, and committed suicide, but the difference is Peter actually repented and was restored. What proof do you have that Newt repented.
    Now, why is Newt ex-life being brought up, by the media, when they still haven’t brought up all of obama’s ex’s like what did he do before his marriage, and during his marriage like Larry Sinclair. Before Marriage Donald Young, and Jeremiah Wright.
    Why, if the media is so unbias doesn’t it bring up all obama’s past boy friends and the pictures of Michelle with unusual, to say the least, male bulges in her pants and dress?

    Here’s the thing. I was married many, many years ago and have an ex-husband. We were married for three or four years…been so long ago that I don’t even remember, but I’ve moved on. You never ask an ex about a spouse. Too many hard feelings and too much water under the bridge. Newt moved on and his ex-wife isn’t going to be first lady if he wins. She’s making hay–as they say–while the sun shines. She and whatever she has to say, has nothing to do with his ability to run a country. I’m not a Newt fan, but I’m fed up with low-down dirty tricks of a media busy covering for a sorry POS POTUS. He cannot run on his record, so the media will ruin as many lives as it takes to keep him in office.

    I don’t care if Newt is a brilliant orator, I will never vote for him. I don’t trust him. How could you ever trust a man who’s been married three times, twice divorced, and committed many transgressions not only between marriages, but also while he was married to his first two wives? God only knows what he is doing now. He is not a moral person; I would not trust him to the the Commander in Chief of the greatest nation on earth.

    Wake up, people. Use your heads. If you believe that he’s sought forgiveness and has changed his ways, then you’re totally out of touch with reality and you’re a ninny.

    Refusing to support him is not the same thing as “grinding Mr. Gingrich’s face back into the mud”. Please!  There isn’t much evidence that he has repudiated his own behavior, and he has made contradictory statements on his positions even in this very year, meaning 2011. Just because Newty can effectively make a good case for conservatism, it doesn’t obscure the fact that he jumps on any bandwagon without thinking through what he’s espousing, nor does it obscure the extremely tacky, anti-capitalist rhetoric of the latest anti-Romney campaign ads. He is very smart, I give you that, but having paid a great deal of attention to his behavior as Speaker of the House, I remain unimpressed that he actually follows through on his speech. He praised FDR in the very first speech he gave as House Speaker. He is a charade.

    If you did do something wrong, are you still doing that? If not, why did you stop being “Bad”.
    Did you grow older, and smarter? The list of things I’ve done wrong, while maybe not worth TV exposure, is long. I don’t do those things anymore, from 10, 20, 30, 40 years ago.
    I grew older and smarter.
    With the rest of my life in the balance, if Poison obumbler is re-elected, I can “get over” things Newt did 15 years ago. ABO is my voting stance, Anybody But obumbler.
    Newt has the experience to get the job done for us, and I’d vote for him. Romney still makes me uneasy, too “polished”, but I’ll vote him also. Depends who wins, but both Men are far superior to what we have now.
    Don’t fail us! Vote!

    Now that glenn has turned from news person to preacher, he jumps in on the gossip just like the rest of the media. I wonder if it ever occurred to him that this could simply be a disgruntled woman who is angry the she may have deprived her self of the Whitehouse so she wants it to appear to be all Newts fault. She probably can’t stand the thoughts of her losing the chance of being the first lady to the attractive wife.
    Glen needs to realize that he may have turned into a Mormon preacher, but the rest of us haven’t. Actually, Mitt’s grandpa’s had many wives, one had 13, one left town with his five.(That’s probably why you don’t hear Mitt mentioning Newt’s two divorces). all at the same time but that doesn’t count just like Clintons women didn’t count.Glenn turned Mormon (I believe) so he will do everything he can do to get Mitt elected, like being a Mormon qualtifies him to be president. I never thought Glenn would use gossip to try to destroy someones political endeavors.  I still think Newt is the best candidate. But I’m not their judge,like Glenn is, since he turned preacher. He was a much better reporter and know’s a heck of a lot more about politics than he does about religion.

    It isn’t at all a bogus analogy – it is quite apropo. The logic works, and if you can’t see it that is your problem. You apparently choose to make decisions based on emotion rather than logic.

    People will choose Newt because of what he can do for the country, for his energy, intelligence, creative solutions to the many problems we have etc. While they do not condone what he did in the past in his marriages, they do not let visceral factors affect their judgment in selecting a leader for their country. If you do not like my explanation of why someone would chose Newt, then by all means, feel free to search for the answer elsewhere… if you are seriously looking for an answer.

    this is how i look at it i can’t vote for Newt because of that maybe i will vote for him if he was the only choise but i feel like if the guy can’t keep his wedding vows then how is he going to keep his vows to our country. to be fair i don’t want to vote for any of them because they all look like fakes to me. i would chose between a fake and Obama it will always be the fake.

    To all of you who are judging Newt and seem to be a bit puffed up with your own sense of self-righteousness..I hope you never find yourself in a fallen position, and worse yet, in a position of having to look yourself in the mirror and admit that you not only made poor decisions once, you did the same dumb, stupid thing AGAIN. You messed up your life, maybe you lost your job and even your spouse..and here you are, looking at yourself in the mirror and wondering HOW you could ever be so stupid. And guess what? You have nowhere else to go but to RUN to the foot of the Cross and fall on your face before God. I hope you never find yourself in that position, because if you are right (which you’re not), then, if Jesus cannot forgive Newt, He can’t forgive you either. Yes, Newt was acting stooooppiiidddlllyyyy. But the truth is, people do change. They do finally find out who they are in Christ. They do repent. And THANK GOD, Jesus does forgive, and He never changes. He told us to forgive 70 X 7. Do you think He would forgive any less? When the sinner beat his chest and refused to even look up because he was so ashamed of himself, but begged God for forgiveness, and the self-righteous “religious” man bragged because he was so “grateful” he was not like that old sinner, who was it that God was pleased with? Whose prayer did God hear?

    The fact that Romney took no salary for his work turning around the Olympics, only took a $1 annual salary while Governor of MA, and said when he ran for President last time that he wouldn’t take the Presidential salary shows a person with a desire to actually be a public servant. All rich people aren’t evil, some actually do things to benefit others of their own free will. Sad, but it appears that people will trust a multi-time adulterer, but are afraid of a Mormon…go figure!

    Ron Paul believes we should go to war only if we are threatened, not because of internal genocide in another country.  Once you go down that road, we go into countries because of internal problems.  That causes people to deliberately cuase civil wars, because others will count on us to stick our noses into their country.  It is why I was against Clnton bombing Yugoslavia.  Heck, we should bomb darfur and China.  It is time for countries to take care of their own —-.  When we act like the worlds cop we will be expected to act like one.

    Like you, I don’t like the fact that Romney ever supported abortion. But the fact that he has openly said in the debates that supports overturning Roe vs. Wade, I’m hoping that like Reagan, he has truly had a change of heart. As far as your off shore (Cayman Islands) comment, you are incorrect on that. American citizens have to pay the same taxes on money held there, just like if it were in a bank here. So he paid his taxes on that money. It’s countries like France and Britain whose citizens actually get a tax shelter by putting their money there. I imagine you got your opinion from the media’s convenient spin on this to make Romney look like a tax dodger. Sean Hannity explained it very well today on his radio program as totally false.

    Connie,

    Newt’s taxed on the money he earned in one year. Romney was already taxed at 35%. he is now only taxed on his investment risked income – that rate is 15% for all dividend investors. To tax that income at 35% is the equivalent of 70% on Mr. Romney. How would that be fair? Newt didn’t risk his money, made sharp investments, so he is taxed on what he earns in a year.

    All that tells you is Newt didn’t make investments that pay off later in his life. He’s still being taxed on current income while Romney has been there, done that, invested well, and now is living off those investments.

    That’s what I want to do as well. If I can learn which investments to make, I will be self-sufficient in my later years. It’s exactly according to the tax code. We can all learn how to do this. This is what the American Dream is all about.

    Excellent analogy, Sandie. Our government needs some serious bureaucratic surgery and we don’t need another trainee in the Oval Office whose major objective is to be liked. We need a POTUS who won’t mind being disliked and is familiar with the halls of D.C., as we are accelerating toward the precipice only the non-Lemmings among us seem to see. As a former soldier and old -time poker player, I’d love to have Santorum and Romney at a poker table: Romney would timidly hedge his bets and Santorum would lose his shirt. I wouldn’t mind following Gingrich into harm’s way, but Paul would have to be dragged along or left behind. Gingrich is the kind of leader that the world would immediately respect. I don’t see that in the other three. There’s no shortage of bitter ex-spouses, and they all have their own – not necessarily accurate – perspectives on the realities.

The last thing we need in the WH is another womanizer. Been there, done that, now we’re all paying. BOTH wives tell the same tale. If Newt has had several, there are more to come.

    I watched it first hand with my own father. He didn’t come to God until he couldn’t physically “do it” anymore. Once the hormones were gone my father was much more understanding about what he had done. Grandpa Newt is not there yet. He has more history that will surface and more history yet to write…it is a pattern of behavior I could spot a mile away.

    I think once the border is closed, we will see a big difference in everyone putting into the system. What’s fair about the top carrying everyone else, many who actually think they should be sitting? Healthcare will calm down when people aren’t expecting freebies.

    A hard days work, being kind, generous to others, and honest with each other goes a long way…

    Thank you. You would think by some posts that there is something wrong with being faithful to your wife and being successful. Isn’t that what we all want? So let’s put him in the WH! How refreshing, a United States Presdident that doesn’t smoke, drink, or womanize, a novel approach.

    Mitt Romney could teach us all a thing or two!

    Some of you people need to apoligize to Bill Clinton.  You seem so willing to accept behavior from someone you like that you condemn in those you don’t.  Can the man be forgiven?  Of course.  But if you are a recovering alcoholic you don’t take a job tending bar and if you are a recovering womanizer you don’t need to be in a position of power and authority.

    The presidential election is not a beauty contest.  It’s serious business.  You need to view the candidates records dispassionately and select the one with the vision and drive to steer us away from the shoals of socialism and tyranny.  Yes, I know, Glenn thinks Newt is a big government progressive but, for me, it’s not so much what people say that I believe as what they do.

    When you compare Newt’s record with ANYBODY else’s, he stands far above them in what he can do and what he has actually accomplished.  Newt was involved in the 1981 Kemp-Roth tax cuts.  He persuaded Bill Clinton to sign sweeping healthcare reform.  In 1994 he returned Republicans to power in the House after an absence of decades.  He forced Clinton to restrain spending and reduce taxes.  By the end of the 90s the country saw surpluses, NOT 16 trillion in debt.  He did a lot of good work after he left Congress too.  He pushed to end the moratorium on offshore drilling; he opposed cap and trade and the Kennedy-Bush illegal immigrant amnesty plan.  His Center for Health Transformation developed a clear, concise, conservative argument against Obamacare.  Mitt Romney would, at best, be a competent administrator.  America needs for than this.  America needs a conservative visionary, as Rick Perry named Newt. 

    And, how about a little Christian forgivement for Mr. Gingrinch.  Newt has entered into the Christian faith.  Being “born again” brings repentance and turning to Christ, the one who died for just this purpose.  Perhaps it’s just a convenient story Newt is telling but it is instructive that all the garbage being spewed by the media and certain candidates and their SuperPACs predates this spiritual turning in his life.  Glenn has often shared that he did many unsavory things in his past.  He has also expressed his regret and repentance for those deeds and thoughts.  Enough said?  Apparently not, if your name is Newton Leroy Gingrinch.  I can understand Newt’s ex-wife having forgiveness issues.  I don’t hold non-Christians to any standard that requires them to forgive anyone.  They live in a state of moral relativism and accept no absolutes.  Christians, however, should accept the one who is “born again”.  We are ALL sinners, saved only by the sacrifice of Christ.

  • Rex Whitmer

    Newt Gingrich would love to be a conservative, but he doesn’t know how to be.  An honest conservative would not run around on his wife the first time and for certain wouldn’t run around on the second.  He likes to talk the talk, but he cannot walk the conservative walk.  He is as stable as water, that is he runs where there is a down hill slope or easy way!  He was elected to engage the House in his “Contract With America”, but failed and eventually was thrown out of the house for his actions.  He is a narcicist who thinks only of himself and what he wants  He would love to be President and have the accolades that comes with the job, but it is likely he would handle the job no better than Obama has, and he could be worse.  Being married for any length of time takes committment, something Gingrich knows nothing of.

  • Rex Whitmer

    Sandie, Newt had his chance when Clinton was in the Whitehouse.  He came up with a grandiose plan he called “Contract With America”.  The Republicans held a majority in the House and promised to set things right, but Newt and Nancy had a thing going (not sexual as he was doing with his present wife while he was still married to the second one).  The house held up legislation and were accused of blocking legislation to force passage of conservative legislation.  The press hit them hard, and Newt gave in.  His actions were so gross that he was voted out of his place as Speaker of The House!  At the same time he was publicizing Clinton’s actions with Lewinski,  he was taking his staff worker to his own house to his and his wife’s bed!  To be a Conservative you need to talk the talk AND walk the walk.  He Talks well, but he can’t WALK!

    It’s not working well for me either. Nor has it been for a while. Why is that?

  • Josie

    I understand that some people are appauled by this whole thing but really many of us are now anestitized after the whole Clinton embarassment, then Edwards  and oh boy I’ve lost count.  Yes it’s still important and it should still matter but with so much at stake that involves all of us the nitty gritty of he said she said is just not important any longer.

    I have read that some are revolted that he would ask to have extra marital relations and about 15yrs ago I probably would have been with all of you but question – why did he think he needed to ask in the first place?  Also would it have been better if he had had affairs behind her back?  I am not saying any of this is right but simply looking at it from dif angle.  This is the second wife that is complaining about this, yet did she give the first wife a thought when she had an ellicite affair  behind wife #1.  While the mai responsibility for honor belongs to the spouse doing the cheating, the mistress or stud is just as responsible for going along and participating, knowing full well what they are doing. 

    With so much information that has been shared the past month about why not to give Gingrich the vote, this is just piddly stuff to keep us busy. 

    Let’s grow up, most of them have fooled around. Remember even Regan was divorced and is there enough space in this board to mention all the women in Kennedy’s closet and then of course Clinton finished us off from ever having an issue with cheaters and scum.

    Sniff, sniff.  Do you smell something fishy?   Let me take you back to, was it Oct. last year?

    Remember when Herman Cain was in the race?  Remember when he started getting some

    attention?  Then, do you remember when the women from his past brought up allegations from

    10 years ago (or more) about his improper sexual conduct?  Remember what happened to him?

    What happened to the women involved?  Haven’t heard of any court action.

     Now, let’s go to the present.  Newt may have been a crappy husband in the past; he has ad-

    mitted he had made mistakes and is sorry for his actions.  That doesn’t seem to cut any ice with

    those who have already condemned him and will not give him any forgiveness for the past. 

    But, now that he appears to be gaining in the polls, it seems ”the powers” feel it is time to bring

    him down.  Hmm.  Will this be repeated until only Romney is left standing?

    No, I am not a Gingrich supporter, but this scenario sounds very familiar.

    Don’t you think the timing is a tad suspicious, ”king”?   Makes me wonder if she did this

    I just think Newt is a lose Cannon and will not look good amongst Independents… He seems like he can fly off the handle at any time to me… He left one when she had cancer and the other when she had MS..

That is why Obama is not dropping in the polls…

    Do you really think Romney is superior in intelligence and knowledge than Newt? Apparently your knowledge of both of them is lacking. In any event – if you really read and COMPREHENDED my post to William, you would know that I was not choosing one over the other, I was explaining why people would – the rational they would likely use to make their choice if they chose Newt. If you couldn’t comprehend that, HTH do you think you can research, ascertain, and judge the information on these candidates?

    That is exactly the attitude the Democrats had during the Clinton scandals.  And, as I recall, the Republicans, especially those calling themselves “Christian Conservatives,” tended to make negative judgments about the character of those same Clinton-defending Democrats.  

    Just like Clinton, Newt is a betrayer.  Both betrayed their wives (Gingrich, two wives); they both have betrayed their party (or party members) when it was in their personal interest; and they both betrayed their constituents and/or supporters, also usually for personal/political interests.

    Newt Gingrich will never be POTUS, too much baggage.

    Who care’s? It’s about time the population of the USA stopped obsessing about whether or not a candidate is shagging someone other than his wife, it has no bearing whatever on his competence as a leader or his ability to carrry forth his agenda and plan for the country. Will he get us in to more wars or not, whill he trample over the rights of the people with presidential orders? What is his plan for the middle east? How will he deal with the European debt crisis and the home grown one too. There are a million things to get right and his marriage or his sexual proclivity isn’t one of them.

    I’m a conservative republican and have voted a straight republican ticket since I was 21 (I’m 73 now). However, I’m frustrated at the GOP for not producing a candidate for presidency that can win the election in November. If Obama wins a second term, the fault will be upon the GOPand not the voters.

     Republicans are CONSERVATIVES  but none of the GOP candidates are truely conservative and all have too much baggage or they’re simply without a political platform that attracts voters .Republicans will choose not to vote in the 2012 election therefore casting their ballot for Obama’s second term in the Whitehouse.

    I would need to read more to understand whether this is Glenn’s biggest oppostion to Newt, and/or to understand his pros and cons for both candidates.

    I find none of these candidates trustworthy, and history has proven that MOST, not all, become more corrupted and manipulated once they get into office.  So, to me, in the trust column, all are equal…even Santorum.

    I don’t feel any of the Rep candidates are fully electable…each has their own leadership flaws. I believe Santorum is the most sincere about working “FOR” the people.  I believe Romney is the most well-groomed, stately looking, and well spoken candidate.  I believe Gingrich is the most knowledgeable of our nations history, and would be the strongest candidate to stand against the socialism and liberalism in the country.  Ron Paul might be the most fiscally responsible, but he doesn’t seem very organized in his thoughts…I think he would be overwhelmed by the position.

    Oh please, O’s bagage is over the top.  There’s stuff that will come out about him we don’t even know about.  The scary part is, Obama has the bucks to pay others to lie and make material up.  That’s what we need to worry about.

    The fact she would smear her ex-husband in front of millions and her children tells me she is an embitted woman. Like Cain, the Obamaite’s propaganda media like to do hatchet jobs on Conservatives and GOP. Brian Ross’s own words the, “ FBI story didn’t go anywhere” and she didn’t know any facts so she resorted to tabloid stories. If anyone believes Obama hasn’t had affairs since his days on the campaign trail are still the naive babes Amercians sometimes portray themselves to be. With all the smutt on TV and in real life we are now sanctimonious and appalled at the words ‘open marriage’. We’ve known of Newt’s background and yet we are now surprised with this rehashed story. We are at a point in history where men want to marry men and women want to marry women. Heavens to Betsy, who are the prigs now. Let he without sin cast the first stone.

    Many great points bjv!    The best of marriages can turn.  Most people learn from their mistakes.  It’s like parenting.
    But, what’s happening in this country now is purposeful, knowingly being done with the objective to harm as many as possible  To some, this is OK?

    I think you’re right. When people are sick of something, they tend to throw out the good with the bad just to be sure the bad is really gone. That turns into a problem all its own. There is a balance to most things in life and if you get too far one way or the other, bad things happen. That is not the case though when we follow Christ, because you can never do too much good. You’re a wise man for someone your age Ryan.

    When Glenn left Fox….I was very sad because I knew I wasn’t going to see/hear him as consistently.  Miss you Glenn!

    I feel many Americans feel – this is a pivital time in our history.  We all must take responsibility on an excelerated level, as we should have been doing all along. If we don’t…..we are giving up our liberty.  Government leaders & the media manipulate us because we nieve, lazy and don’t see the trees for the forest.  This is no surprise and appalling at the same time. Related to the election and the candidates……there is +/- impact mixed in every situation and what makes “taking a stand” a challenge.  I recognize we’re all human and all made mistakes in our lives.  As a Christian – we learn none of us are without fault and God’s here to help us through as believers. We are taught to forgive, because He forgives us. We have a long history of disappointment in many leaders from early on – again, God teaches us not to put our faith in Man…..because we will be disapppointed.  I remember back in the late 80s-90s debating with my father over dinner about the issues that were surfacing in the TV evangelistic community.  The argument is the same for me then as it is now:   On my own level I DO FORGIVE the mistakes (because they are human, as I am.) and pray for their/my continued redemption.    BUT……I DON’T WANT THEM TO  LEAD ME.I did not vote for Obama. I don’t want him to be President again.  That being said….EVEN Pres. Obama has some redeeming quality (He’s a family man, loves his wife and his children.)  Philosophically / politically, I don’t trust him any further than I could throw him!  OK…..take the Republican candiates……..each of them have strengths/weaknesses.  What makes this horrifically difficult is NONE have my wholehearted support…..I have to live with that (i.e., I feel “wiser” to be in that place; less likely to be “let down”).  Related to Newt…..as a fellow human being, I forgive him his misgivings…..I do think he has “talents” to bring to us as a country…..but I have a hard time making him MY CHOICE for PRESIDENT. Again, each of these candidates’  have weaknesses…., I can’t vote for JESUS for President……but that’s the kind of leader the American people need!!!!  I don’t know if our country has another GEORGE WASHINGTON.  Certainly we don’t have someone running for office of his caliber. So, I’ll do my due-diligence and a lot of praying for our country and my family/friends and what I can’t “control” put in the hand’s of fate & God.  Based on Rush’s(?) and Glenn’s comments:……..I’m afraid I’ll be in a position on election day to vote for a JUICE CAN or a SHOE.    We’re in trouble.  We’re inviting ARMEGEDDON.

    That’s just another man’s mind set.  His wife couldn’t please him so he had to find another women who could.  At least he was honest with his wife and came to her about having an open marriage.  From a women’s perspective, if my husband was unable to “perform” it would be very hard not to want to stray.

    “Newt has repented”; False.  He is covering his sin becasue he has not forsaken it.  He is still accountable to his vows to his covenant wife (the first one).  His subsequent paramours are not his “wives”, but only partners in sin.  God will not join an adulterous union, but he condemns it outright.  You can’t be forgiven of a sin that you continue to committ.  So says the Blessed Jesus.

    Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.(Luk 16:18)
    (Luk 16:18)

    Glenn… Practice what you preach.Go ahead and cast the stone in your hand if you are without sin. To repent is to sin no more. You say that you found Christ, yours and all peoples redeemer. All who talk the talk and not walk that talk come up as hypocrites. We are all sinners and continue to sin once in a while, but we repent and confess. Don’t dirty the water Glenn… you will have to drink of it some day, whether you are mormon now or catholic (at birth) you will have to stand before the throne and give an account. What the politicians say should be a reflection and a conviction of what they believe. Examine the record, the experience and who they are Today.
    You would not like people to treat you (them) now by your (their) past but by what your (their) potential is and could be; by the people (you) they know and surround themselves with. “tell me with whom you walk and I will tell you who you are”.

    It all comes down to trust.  A cheater is a cheater.  I want a president I can trust.  During this campaign Newt has also shown to us that he is able to spendidly spin or talk around lying.  I feel that he believes he is above the morals set for the rest of us.  He is a politicain in the worst sense of the word.  I could not vote for this man.

    Gee, Glen – how dishonest can you be?  “ex-wife (there have been so many)”.  You know he has two (2) ex’s.  The first was his much older high school teacher – cougar.  I know you support Mitt Romney and trash others, but dishonesty on your part doesn’t help make your point (if you have one).

    I love Sandie’s brain surgeon analogy (see her comment).  Another might be if you are lost in a cave with no light.  Someone comes along who has a carbide light on his helmet, spelunking gear, and who knows the cave thoroughly.  Another comes along who used to sell spelunking gear, but has never been in a cave before, and has no gear.  Both want to lead you out.  You find out the first one has been divorced.  Who would you choose?

    Let him/her who is without sin cast the first stone.

    Forgiveness is always offered.  But we need someone we know we can trust.  This was not a one time fling!  And to cheat on not one but two wives when they are ill?  Wow.  

    We need a man we know we can trust when no one is looking.  If he can’t be trusted with his wife, how do we think we can trust him with us?

     I was very disappointed in the audience last night for supporting Newt’s dodging and redirecting the issue.  
    The strong words he used to Mr. King should be used on his behavior.  

    I don’t understand why people of values would support a man who has a pattern of dishonesty and lack of honor.  Do they not remember the fiasco with Pres. Clinton!! 

    And how do we stomach this couple representing our country?  It sickens me.  

    We need an honorable man as president.  Romney is a strong leader and we know he can be trusted.  I hope reason prevails tomorrow.

    So, as well as the marriage situation, who ACCURATELY knows the situation with Gingrich being voted out of being Speaker?  What everybody knows is what’s reported by the media..(a very reliable sources…LOL).  I’ve known many people in the business world who have been demoted or ousted from positions because they wouldn’t just “go along” with things.  Did that happen with Gingrich?  I don’t know…I’m just asking to give another thought on the matter.  What if he wasn’t willing to go along with the typical political pressure, and was ousted by his fellow, senior, reps who didn’t like that he wouldn’t just fall in line.

    On a moral level, Gingrich has had his past issues, but it’s not our place to be judgmental unless we’re ready and willing to have judgement laid upon us for all of the deeds we have done.

    Honestly, I don’t know who is BEST for the job, but I sure hope one of these candidates will be BETTER than our current president.  Who will have the guts and strength to start making the changes in Washington to get this country back to the hard working, no handouts, power that it used to be?  OR, can anyone?

    Newt says he has repented and sought forgiveness. we should take him at his word and not indulge in rumor-mongering. it is as unfair to him as someone saying not to listen to you because you once had a drinking problem.

Hopefully, Newt has learned from his mistakes, like the rest of us!!!!!!  I am glad there are people who trust me, in spite of my mistakes, some were made over and over again.  I’m forgiven and changed. !!!

    Everything is opinion.  We all have them.  Some don’t feel they can trust Gingrich because of his lack of commitment to his marriages.  But, can you better trust a man who wants people and businesses to invest in American, yet he off-shores his investments to evade taxes in this country?  I definitely am against our current tax laws, but in the end, I have to pay…I am not able to afford to pay someone to figure out how to shift my money around like Romney does.  AND, he’s definitely not the only one who does that.  But, if we’re going to scrutinize moral and ethical behavior, then scrutinize everything. 

    I guess Santorum and Paul are looking better, but are either able to be more electable than Obama?

    For the first time, I am disappointed with Mr. Beck.  As far as the ex-Mrs. Gingrich, explain to me how participating in such an interview with ABC is any more than a classier (in your mind, not mine) display of the low-class, mud-slinging, teat exposing trash one might observe on one of the lowest of “entertainment tv” shows…the Jerry Springer’s Show,  With the exception that Newt didn’t come out mid-show to roll in the mud with you.  Does it matter to you what your children think?  At least your children have a name, a father, and were supported financially…as you were.  Or did you take the moral high road and refuse Newt’s money?  Explain this:  if Newt wanted an open marriage and Calista was in favor of such a lifestyle…why are Calista and Newt married?  Perhaps you are prepared to provide evidence of their swinging lifestyle.

    On the subject of the ethics committee’s investigation of Newt and the comments that he was ousted by his own party, I suggest everyone review…how many ethics charges, how many stuck, was was the one that stuck, how much of a fine was paid.  And compare to the currently stalled ethics committee investigations, and why the hell is no one in prison over Fannie Mae?  Oh, yeah…Democrats.  In case you haven’t noticed, when a Republican comes under attack, he or she steps down for the greater good.  Democrats hold their ground, lie like dogs, create a diversion with their partners, the MSM, and/or pull the racist or homophobe card. 

    This is not an endorsement of Newt.  I am undecided.  I like Santorum, but he will be savaged as a crazy bible thumper by a media quick to ascribe to and espouse Obama’s opinion of the dumb redneck clingers.  

    I like Mitt Romney’s skill set.  I understand the business model of Bain, and their success rate is over 70% in turning failing biz around and saving jobs.  However, Romney disappointed me when he quit the race in 2008 and left me holding my nose to vote for RINO McCain.  (And they dared to call Palin the quitter??)  Needless to say, McCain’s endorsement of Romney did not warm the cockles. 

    May I remind the media and readers, though, whatever money Romney has, he earned legally, paid taxes, generously donated to his church and charity, and banks LEGALLY.  If you don’t like off-shore accounts, demand laws be changed.  I suspect you’d be surprised to see a lot of resistance from the Democrats on that point as well.  While we’re at it, let’s do ask for complete and timely transparency of hedge fund activity as well.  We must not forget who throws billions to the Democrats to further his agenda…none other than spooky dude George Soros.  And audit the Fed.  I have a burning desire to know who is controlling the stock market, and propping up the financial markets and to the tune of how many $$$.  The real truth.  I have my suspicions.  And I suspect if a Republican takes office in 2012, those who are doing the propping, may pick up there marbles and go elsewhere.  Uh oh.  Total collapse.  The table is set and those in power at this time, set it.

    If it is suddenly wrong to be a rich politician, especially a rich politician whose money came from illegal and amoral behavior or insider knowledge, better take a hard look at the past of the Camelot clan of the Kennedys, or the more contemporaries like the Clintons and the Pelosi’s for starters.  Why why why do we eat our own when there is so much low-hanging fruit on the “D” side?  We don’t need to re-write history; we need to shine the light of truth upon it.

    Hi Edwards,

    This is jfmf responding to your comment to my comment.

    You couldn’t be more wrong. I am a conservative and a christian. I do believe in forgiveness. I am the polar opposite of liberal.

    That doesn’t mean that I don’t have a mind of my own. I know that God forgives us our transgressions if we are truly penitant. Who amongst us is perfect? Not I for sure. That being said, just because God forgives Newt Gingrich, that doesn’t mean that I have to forgive him. It isn’t even that I don’t forgive him; I don’t trust him to lead our country. After all, if a man is capable of breaking his wedding vows at least twice, how do you know he will not break his vows to the American people and to the United States of America? You don’t. That’s all I’m saying. It scares me.

    Now, the bottom line is that I want Obama outta there as much as you do, and maybe more. As far as I’m concerned any of the candidates on that stage could do a better job than Obama. Even a dodo bird could do better than Obama.

    So please relax and calm down. I’m on your team. We must all pray and pray hard for a Republican win.

    People like Newt because of his wit answering questions, but you know what?  That is what we used to like Fidel Castro for  when the Cuban revolution started….He was a good debater but a complete liar.     WE NEED A DECENT PERSON IN THE WHITE HOUSE, not a good speaker.  I am a conservative woman, married 47 years and we had our moments in our marriage, you can forgive and forget….but an OPEN MARRIAGE?
    Newt has been saying his divorce was in mutual agreement, well heck, yes….but he did not say why….    This reminds me of the Princess DEE and the Camilla affair with Charles.  

    WHO WANTS TO STAY MARRIED IN A TRIANGLE MARRIAGE ARRANGEMENT? I can not see conservative women or women in their right mind voting for Newt and Calista to go to the White House.  Specially if we have a decent guy like Rick Santorum running for President.  

    He might not be perfect either, no one is…but he seem to be really a good and decent person, and really concern with the morals and problems that this country is facing and will face worst things if not stopped by the next president.  In Santorum what you see and what he says is what you get……

    So William, let me help you out. Loving a cheating, lying, morally bankrupt politician is an American tradition. It began, in my life time, with those two wild and crazy kids who resided in Camelot….Jack and his queen…Jackie Kennedy .  You see, Jack was nailing Judith Campbell Exner (who he was sharing with that cute little mobster, Sam Giancana), Mimi Fahnestock (a teenage intern), Mary Pinchot Meyer (a secretary) and Norma Jean Baker (Marilyn Monroe), who he was a partner with his brother Bobby. Marilyn was found dead on her bed. An overdose of sleeping pills was supposedly responsible even no barbiturates were ever found.His Queen never complained……Nor the liberal media….And Camelot lived on…..

    And then along came the Prince of Charm, the Dope from Hope, William Jefferson Clinton and his queen, Hillary the Hun. Jennifer Flowers and Paula Jones were the most featured performers on his dance card until  the lovely Monica Lewinsky appeared on the scene in a blue dress. It was love for Slick Willie until the dress was sent to the cleaners. This made Willie start to studder and the impeachment hearings began…..And Hillary the Hun, since she couldn’t bake cookies, stood by her man…….True love has no boundaries…….

    So William, I hope this American history primer is of some value to you in your search for understanding.Vote for Newt….Keep the tradition alive…….

    I went to college prep school with Bsrry Obama in Hawaii. I vetted him and did NOT vote for him. There is plenty to know about him.

    Here’s a small clue, he was mentored by Uncle Frank now known to be Frank Marshall Davis, who mentored Barry from 12-18. in Barry’s book, he wanted to emulate this man.

    This man was the lead writer for the Honlulu underground Communist newspaper. Look it up-do the math. Obabma is not a socialist – he is borderline Communist.

Should I trust him as the Republican congress did before they forced him out of the Speaker’s chair? Should I trust that he is against an individual mandate when he said that he supported a form of mandate as late as 2011?

    (I don’t condone such behavior, but he did it) So, it is past tense and he will have to account for it and hope God’s grace will pardon his transgressions. Her statements don’t make her look good, rather make her look revengeful – also not a Christianlike behavior. She should ask God for helpling her overcome her disdain for Newt and look for ways she can now serve the Lord in a better way.

    If John Edwards were to come out and say, since my wife died I have asked forgiveness, changed my ways and am ready to get back in the game.  Would you be fine with that?  I’d have to say, I’m happy for you, take time to get the rest of your life in order and stay out of the environment (politics) that you were in when you cheated.  If you don’t want to fall, don’t walk where it’s slippery.  Most of these guys are cheating because the are on a power trip and they see themselves as too powerful to fail.

    This NOT Sunday Shcool class Both ex- wives with the same tale, both ex-wives terminally ill. Newt can not only keep a commitment, but he runs in the face of adversity.

    With the same passion he delivered last night, he scolded Clinton/Gore in front of the entire congress, that they had no morals. At THE VERY SAME TIME he was sleeping around with his now wife, Colista.

    Wake up, this man hasn’t come to God. There are more things to come out about him. Where there are two there are more. I watched my father do the very same thing!

    The first step to being forgiven is admitting what one has done wrong.  Gingrich has yet to admit that any of the steps he has taken were wrong.  Worse he used his own children as sheilds to protect himself from having to answer to any of his actions.  Coward.

    There is a big problem for me when a candidate’s favorite, most admirable presidents past are FDR, Andrew Jackson, Teddy Roosevelt & the evil Woodrow Wilson. ALL PROGRESSIVES!  Progressivism is how all these problems of ours got started. So, if people think Newt is the best we can do out of this lot, then our country is almost as screwed with him as we are with O…we’ll just go down a tad less slowly.  While Newt may debate well, I see him as arrogantly two-faced.  He may say one thing to the people, but he’ll do his own thing whether we like it or not.

    Out of the 4 remaining for the primary, my vote goes to Santorum (in spite of his few imperfections).   In all areas, he has the most common sense and is overall the most sane and willing to listen in order to see all options and choose what’s best for the country.  In the general, I’ll vote for anyone over O, cause if O gets re-elected we are definitely burnt toast!

    Nice history lesson. I’d like to add that the country still ran on time with all the dalliances and diversions! Of course, those were Democrats you offered up on a platter of National Enquirer headlines! lol Which all boils down to “anything goes in the Democratic Party, but don’t besmirch the GOP”.

    Let’s stick to qualifications and experience and leave the personal stuff out of it. No matter who the GOP picks (and let’s face it, the people may not have much to say about who the GOP and the Media Talking Heads offer up for your consideration), they will be more qualified to run this country than the current Occupier.

    I’m not perfect, I’ve made mistakes in my life, I used to look at the world and people in a whole different light then I do now.  There was a time in my life where I thought and felt little compassion towards anybody but myself.  But, I’m not that same person now and the changes have been for the better.  I’m 61 years old now, I’ve been on this path of improvement in myself for over 40 years, it doesn’t always happen overnight.  I look back and see the person I used to be and I despise that person as much as anybody else would.   Jesus knew people could change, why else in John 8:7 when they bought a woman taken in adultery to him to see what judgment he would bring did he say; “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”.  None did, they all left and Jesus told the women to go and sin no more.  All people sin and make mistakes and all can change.  Of course not all people do.  That’s why we have to weigh what’s said and done in the present carefully before we can determine of what substance that person is today.  
    Here’s my point. 
            First off don’t believe everything you hear, there’s always two sides to every story.
           Don’t judge a person by who they may or may not have been like years ago.  Judge them by who they are now.  Listen to what they are saying.  Obama got elected because people didn’t really listen to what he was saying.  He presented his words will and he sounded really good but he actual told us what he was going to do, even all the things we hate about him now.  We just didn’t listen.
         Do we judge the apostles by who they used to be?  If we did we wouldn’t have listened too many of them.
         Do we judge Glenn Beck by who he used to be?  If we did we wouldn’t listen to him either.
         The hearts of men change, maybe through religion or even just life’s experiences but they can change.
         Listen to what the presidential candidates are saying now.  Listen for discrepancies in their stories, this will tell you if they are misleading you or not.  Forget all the political adds, they all are misleading.  Don’t forget, all political ads have just enough truth in them to make you believe them.  Every good lie does.
      My prayer for this presidential election is that God give me and others the ability to discern for ourselves which candidate is best to lead this country.

    Glenn, I love you and admire you and where you have come from, but don’t you think you are being a little judgemental?  As one who has been redeemed in the eyes of God are you held to the fire your passed sins and trangressions?  NO, if you are cleansed by the Blood of Christ and forgiven!   Newt has confessed his sin, sought forgivenness and taken responsibility for his adultry.  The snide remark in parenthesis about (there are so many) refering to his former wives is uncalled for. Since Nwewt, has come to God, he like you, is a changed man.  So, do I look upon Newt as a new creation or still the old?  I believe he has demonstrated there is a change for the good, like us he is not perfect.  Since Marrianne was suppose to forgive him does her accusations show a change of heart towards Newt?  No!   If we tuly forgive, we ought not to demean people with their past unlesspossibly because they are not showing any change.  You, Glenn have demonstrated a life of transformation, now let those of us who declare who have been transformed and have seen a tranformation in the man called Newt, not throw stones.  We will be judged by God for the words we speak.  You are a bigger man than that Glenn.  We are in a Spiritual Battle for our lives and nation, donot let the enemy of God cause division, pride or stife in the body of Christ.

    You are doing a good work, please use good discernemnt as well. thanks

    This is the tricky part, I do not know the particulars of the marriages and if the previous two possible marriages are defective (was either spouse validly married before, for example).  One would have to dig further.  Newt is Catholic and the particulars of the prior unions would have been reviewed by his priest(s), bishop and possibly even the Pope.

    Love ya’ Glenn, paid to be an insider out of my paltry social security check and from CA, my darling wife and I were thrilled to have attended 8/28 in DC with you but I’m confused. 

    You’ve always seemed to be almost proud of the fact that you wallowed in the tawdry world of alcoholism and all that that portends, leaving the mother of your children in the process, while in a close period, Newt was having marital difficulties and yes, had become infatuated with an accomplished young woman. Chubby guys flatter easily….’specially if they’re lonely.

    Neither of us were there to watch Newt’s problems but you seem willing to “bear false witness” (purest hearsay) against him from your BULLY pulpit, based on the words of an angry woman,  that may need what the opposition will pay AT ELECTION TIME, from the deep pockets of Geo Soros. They might even write the script, ya think?! Lies from them I expect.

    I’ve searched but nowhere can I find you giving credence to the story that “wronged wife” Marianne attempted to peddle influence on her highly placed husband to an arms dealer in Europe for a large sum of money, (hmmmm) but I wasn’t there either. Push rumors only when it suits your purpose?
     
    Think you were “forgiven” Glenn? I admire your biting wit….. but only when it’s accurate.

    I’m just bothered by what the pot is saying about the kettle, when it’s readily apparent, that for what ever reason, your forays into broadcast gossip have a distinct tinge of petty bias. From you I expect the truth and nothing but the truth…. could set you free. 

    My notes are in the pursuit of fairness, not an endorsement of Newt as candidate for president, I’m undecided. I have only one burning desire of this election, get rid of the marxist before it’s too late, if it isn’t already. Any one of the candidates would please me by comparison.

    And please, don’t toss out that excuse about vetting the candidates to blunt what’s coming from the left…… there are far too many people of goodwill that take your word for gospel and that particular “vetting” is well established without your aiding the enemy. Your status with a huge group of of folks of good will demands accurate influence.

    With insight gathered since the late 30′s, striving for morality with no fear of any in the wide array of gods, undecided about that too but a great admirer of what’s good in Christianity, the foundation of the country that I love with passion and good reason.  

    I believe that IF angels exist in human form on this earth, David Barton is one. Wonder what unfounded gossip is being spread by David about Newt, or anyone else………..?

    Most sincerely, Bob Campbell …. and still love ya’ man……..

    I was married to a narcissist. I consider Newt a narcissist. What his second wife stated is exactly how a narcissist thinks. He probably said it.

    When he marries you…First you must be beautiful. If babies or illness make you fat or ill, you are no longer perfect…and he will toss you to the side of the road like garbage. But first he will cover his bases, and find someone else. Happens this way with every narcissist.

    I understand he tossed his first wife aside because she was no longer beautiful. Am I correct?
    He said she would not make it as a President’s wife! ??? (He sure was thinking ahead, wasn’t he?)

    Narcissism is an evil illness. It kills. It makes the spouse feel like he/she is living in tyranny. They walk on egg shells. They put up with verbal abuse daily. He has to control. He has to manipulate his spouse….and of course everyone else. If he is wrong..he projects it onto someone else.

    We have a narcissist in the White House now. You SEE what he does.

    Do you REALLY want an Obama on STEROIDS?

    That is what you will get if Newt is elected.

    I am voting for the most consistent conservative who abides by the oath he took to be in office…The Constitution and Declaration of Independence. He is also a very moral Southern Baptist.

    He is misunderstood and if you realize who I am writing about…go to his site and REALLY learn  about him.

    He is our only chance to save the USA. HE is not corrupt. And I believe God is giving us a choice….the guy I am speaking about….or the devil himself.

    Which do YOU choose.

    If you believe these TWO LIES then you aren’t thinking for yourself.

    1. Romney is most electable.  REALITY:  Romeny can’t beat obama, money doesn’t matter, organization doesn’t matter.  Romneys lack of speaking ability, air of un-intelligence, and abysmal record ensures he can’t win.

    2. Gingrich’s PAC’s ad against Romney is “anti-capitalist”.  If that same logic were used in Iowa Romney would have been called an “anti-capitalist” for the ad his PAC ran.

    Fox has become a USED CAR DEALERSHIP.  They are trying to sell Ronmey to the public, and unfortunatley most americans base their political opinion on news networks and pundits.

     I just received this message.  I know nothing about it except what you read below.  If authentic, I thought you may be interested.VERY IMPORTANT–SUNDAY NIGHT  VERY IMPORTANT–SUNDAY NIGHT > This Coming Sunday– Set Your DVR for the Fox News channel at 9:00 PM eastern. Maybe this is why the White House has been discounting FOX. Sounds like this could be history in the making – someone may go down – either Obama or Fox News. It may be that Fox has been holding this information back due to the sensitivity of it and out of courtesy. But, Obama has taken on Fox and it appears they are ready to spill the ugly beans of truth about the background of this individual who has had an extremely radical past. This Sunday, Fox News is going to air a very important documentary about Barack Obama, Sunday night at 9P.M. Eastern. The report will go back to Obama’s earlier days, showing even then his close ties to radical Marxist professors, friends, spiritual advisers, etc. It will also reveal details about his ties to Rev. Wright for 20+ years, i.e., how he was participating with this man, and not for the reasons he stated. The report has uncovered more of Obama’s radical past and we will see things that no one in the media is willing to put out there. It will be a segment to remember. Mark your calendar and pass this on to everyone you know: Sunday night, 8 PM CT; 9 PM ET. Democrat or Republican, this report will open your eyes to how YOUR country is being sold down the road to Totalitarian Socialism. If you care about the direction of our country, pass this notice on to everyone you know. >

    2.  Do you advocate a One World Government?

    Then is they answer yes to either they should be disqualified as a candidate.

    Let me educate you.  85% of Americans don’t care for politics and don’t get involved in politics.  they will watch 30mins of news a week(which will be pro-Obama), and they will watch 1, maybe two debates when the republican candidate is chosen.

    Don’t believe me, HOW DID OBAMA GET ELECTED???  He got elected because my above statement is true.

    I believe De-throning Obama is the biggest hurdle we are facing.  I also believe that Obama would make Romney, Santorum, and Ron Paul look like intellectual infants in a debate(at which point Obama will clinch Re-election).

    Gingrich is the only person who can stand up to Obama.  Gingrich is the only person who actually HAS IDEAS, the rest use the Obama tactic of never giving specifics and always using broad reaching statements that have no content(just like “hope” and “change” Obama used). 

    It’s unfortunate but speaking ability and perception of intelligence are THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS TO BECOMING PRESIDENT, OBAMA PROVED THAT IN 2008.

        Goggle it and see that Marianne Gingrich complaint is very old news and her major complaint is that Newt got their marriage annulled by the Catholic church–angry that someone says their marriage did not even count.  The ABC timing is an obvious attempt to get Romney to run against, whose dad was a bigamist per US laws but not Mormon laws. Read all of the candidates moral values rating by saveamerica.com here http://savecalifornia.com/images/stories/PDFs/presidential_report_card_on_the_natural_family_011412.pdf
        I urge you to go to http://www.listenorleave.com and read the last 2 articles about what the democrats and their media are doing to select the Republican nominee for us–to help Obama win.  They were piling on Romney, but stopped to blast Newt, who they had written off, so he could not win the SC primary as the true updated polls indicated he would.  
        Make no mistake.  The key to swaying Reagan Democrats and Independent voters needed for a Republican to win is convincing them in Presidential debates of the differences between Obama and our candidate.  After watching 15 debates so far, Romney is not that guy.  He has gotten better with tons of practice, but is lousy on the fly.  And he has co-opted many of the key points first raised by Newt, Santorum, and Ron Paul. He still comes across an phony.
        DO YOU REALLY THINK an outsider like Romney will MAKE the Republican leaders make the changes like term limits  and no amnesty that most Americans want?  
        NOTE that  Romney has outspent everyone 5 to 1 and still only gets 30% or less of the Republican vote.  We will vote for whoever our nominee is because, as Glenn said, I would vote for this shoe over Obama–but it is a major mistake to settle for a “reformed” moderate rather than a true Conservative like Newt and Rick are–and we need Newt to lead the way to majorities in the Senate and House, and to dismantle the old time Republican Establishment that helped give Obama everything he asked for out of fear of being labeled the bad guys for opposing him on the Debt Limit and being labelled the cause of any government shutdown–gutless and just dumb and no faith in the majority of American voters.
        It is sad that Glenn can not see that FIRST we need to defeat Obama and dismantle his horrific restructuring of our country–THEN we can search for the more perfect candidate.

We gave it to the Iraqis!! Stop the nation building, and build our own nation. Feed OUR hungry. Give drink to OUR thirsty. Give clothing to OUR naked. Give shelter to OUR homeless. Get them all jobs. Fix our economy. Fix our monetary policy. Put our troops on the borders. Do this and defend our OWN nation first…then give to others.

    This is what the founders of our nation expected of us.

    I have spoken to military personnel. They understand everything  that Ron Paul has stated about our defense spending vs our military spending. They know  war…and they said we need to be home fighting our own wars against the illegals..especially those who are sneaking over our borders to harm us. Do you know that every day, the Border Patrol and ICE find illegals from our enemy countries coming over our border. Some bring plutonium over the border. Now why would they do that? Hmmm? Guess where they come from? South America.

    President Eisenhower stated…”Beware of the Military Industrial Complex!” And he was so correct! They have almost every corrupt Congressman and Senator in their pockets!

    Defend the USA here! Protect us here! We are in danger!

    Maybe you should read more news, we will be exporting oil this year for the first time in decades. You, obviously, have no idea how that works. Oil goes on the open market and to the highest bidder.

    An honest man admits he wants an open marriage though that seems to be pretty much a thing of the past these days. A dishonest one just cheats, does not get caught and no one knows. When Obama’s alleged gay lover came forward in 2008 the alphabet press burried the story and the other alleged lover wound up dead in his apartment in Chicago. Newt’s a conundrum but he’s out there with the info take it or leave it. Other’s hide. I don’t like everything all the politicians have done, but who’s got the fortitude to apologize, make amendments and move on to take care of the business of the country. Mud slinging is easy and everybody’s got baggage. I don’t know Mr. Gingrich but he’s never been caught hanging out with terrorists, bowing down to the waste of the Saudi king or running off to play golf “while Rome burns.” Politicians always seem to be the best and the worst of us, but end game, who can stand up to the worst of the trash thrown at them about their missteps because that has to be the one who will have to stand up to the current Iranian regime, and a lot of other people who want to kill us.  George Patton wasn’t perfect but what we need is someone the bad guys just don’t want to mess with! They only respect a strong horse and whoever that is is who we need!!  Newt likes women, so did King David and he mess up too, but they, I’m from San Francisco and that’s refreshing.  At least he gives women a chance!

    Only, Sandie, your assumptions are completely wrong. YOU are choosing the thoracic surgeon who is screaming that he KNOWS all about Brain surgery “so pick me!”  America’s biggest threat right now is financial implosion.  Romney (and no, I have not decided whom I will vote for yet) is actually the man who has successfully managed and brought to success BIG businesses.  Now, America is basically, as far as her financial situation goes, a BIG Business. So, your example, as oooh’d over by ooobabybaby below, is incorrect.  I am looking at three of the four left, but NOT at the ‘slick-willie’ Mr Speaker.  Sure he is well-versed on the way DC works, but do we want more of the career-politician stuff, or do we want someone who is not a ‘sw’ Pollie?  I for one do not want more of the same.  I want another Geo Wa, or someone as close to that as we can get.  I want morally solid, and strong backbone.

    I support Roe vs Wade, gay marriage, universal healthcare, carbon taxes,  repealing the bush tax cuts, massive cuts to the defense budget, ending the wars… incidentally none of those things are things Gingrich supports (and really most of them are things Romney has never supported either).

    A few “strikes” on my “progressive record” would be that I don’t support amnesty (I support something close to what Gingrich does actually; I think he has a brilliant and actually accomplishable solution to the problem) and I oppose card check.

    I’ll take that bet after researching on the Internet what Newt actually said the last 20 years.  Did you happen to note that neither previous wife even mentioned catching him being unfaithful. Did you see that Marianne and Newt lived apart for 6 years before he became Speaker?  So what is your source other than feminine disgust for any man who does not feel loved or happy in a marriage and initiates the divorce instead of them?  Do you really think these women did not view it as a marriage of convenience from which they received great benefits and public acclaim?  Newt is far from perfect, but who is? I trust his daughters who lived through it a lot more than the media or your feminine intuition.

    Dear e.,

    I know you have no reason to trust me. While Mr. Romney may appear that way to you — he is not, that is just who he is. If people can overlook all of the deliberate decisions made by many candidates, let’s not punish this one for something he has zero control over.

    I’ll bet you wouldn’t dream of saying that you didn’t trust someone or like them because they were too ugly? Why would we then do that to someone attractive? It’s just not right…

    I believe Mr. Romney is more genuine than any of us would even think to imagine. I literally had someone tell me that I could not object publicly to my 10 year old son being graphically taught how to have gay sex by the principal of a public school BECAUSE of my looks. How mean this person was to me. I didn’t listen for a minute and when the event was made public, the school principal could not even look at me in the eyes he was so ashamed about what he had said to these 200 10 year old boys.

    My point being, I had something to offer that no one else even knew about. If I had listened to this person, no one would have ever known the truth. I spoke out anyway. Most parents were glad they then had a chance to discuss this issue privately, in their home, where it belonged.

    Mr. Romney can offer so much to America. We can debate his policies but let’s try to keep our evaluations there.

    Really?!! You guys think Newt’s only issue is that he’s cheated on his wife? This man has a bigger ego than Obama, and can’t see past that to even care about the American people. He throws a temper tantrum or puts the blame back on the person for even insinuating he’s ever done anything wrong (which is why his fellow members of congress won’t support him as a candidate). He has lied about so many things and is guilty of doing many of the same things he’s blamed others for, but it’s okay for him to do them, because he thinks he’s so much better than everyone else. He puts down rich people and capitalism, unless they’re done his way. He could’ve been very rich (richer than Romney), if he actually knew how to handle money. I would never trust our country’s money with a man who has had so many financial problems himself. He has no clue about how to handle the economy or jobs, but since he can speak intelligently, people believe his bluffing and think he’s got ideas. He is so artful at avoiding answering questions, that most people think he actually gave an answer. I hate Obama, but would definitely choose him over Gingrich. I can easily support Romney (or even Santorum), however…

    Face it people, for most of you the issue of religion is more important to you than a candidate’s leadership skills, but you find other excuses to not support Mitt, so others don’t know how shallow and intolerant you are.

    What is really scary is that so many have drank the Newt cool aid.  Are Republicans really looking for a charismatic person who is arrogant, self absorbed, non focused, and self admitted grandiose?  He makes me think of the Jimmy Swaggarts of the world.  Just repent again.
    It seems to me he is similar to an abuser and the abused keeps forgiving him.  I want someone who is stable, predictable, maybe somewhat reticent to brag, who I can trust to follow through. 
    no, I am not a liberal.  I am very conservative, just opinionated.

    And here’s the big problem; if Newt gets the nomination, then we’ll have a choice between Tweedledee and Tweedledum, or as they say, between the lessor of two weevils (emphasis on the last five letters).  Both are very similar types, both very lazy, both liars, both ego-maniacs, both narcissists, and what this really means is that America is carefully and surely being lead down the road of their foretold destruction.  For those who have an ear and will hear, prepare for these next few years, as there will be much weeping in the land.

    I hate this scenario, but there is something afoot here.  Seems like the best fellow, in my opinion, is Mitt, but he’s just too clean, too moral, too religious (although he does not wear that on his sleeve like these others do), for the masses.  Why?  Well, I could give another opinion on that, but to think of Newt as the nominee is so crazy, that obviously the masses are totally duped because of his ability to lie straight-faced.  He is a master liar.  Crazy, but also very sad for America.

    Mitt’s father was born in an American colony inside Mexico. Mitt’s grandparents were American citizens, born in the USA. George Romney was born with the rights of an American citizen, otherwise, he wouldn’t have been able to run for President as he did (Nixon eventually won the Republican nomination). Mitt only mentioned his dad was born in Mexico, not that he didn’t have American citizenship. Know your facts before posting untruths about someone.

    I understand the trust issues.  We all have choices to make and as you well know, some of those choices are mistakes — sometimes really horrible ones.  I don’t know any of the candidates personally and cannot judge their souls.  Everyone that has done Evil has embraced Satan.  Can anyone be excluded?  Since we have free will we can choose to let loose of Satan and walk towards God.

    Everyone has the capacity to lie, cheat, steal — and does.  No news there.

    Newt is a case of having done wrongs, admitted his wrongs and appears to have repented of those wrongs.  I could be wrong, but I believe him and that he appears to be making amends.

    Trust is a earned and sometimes not easily given, if at all.  Sometimes those with trust issues have the issue because they doubt their own trust and have not made any attempt to make amends.  Keep in mind that one day someone may choose (have?) to trust you and have no apparent reason to do so and, perhaps, many reasons not to do so.

     This is the point where character is built.

    Romney didn’t merely focus on campaigning for himself — he traveled across the country for the past few years campaigning and raising money on behalf of many conservative candidates to defeat liberals in their districts. There was nothing fake about him sincerely trying to defeat democrats no matter what election they were involved in throughout the U.S. He is more of a doer than a talker, so give him a little credit for helping his fellow republican, even if he isn’t your choice for Republican candidates. You have probably benefited by some of the time he’s taken off for campaigning.

    Mitt has been misaligned all over the place. People call his MA health care oBooBoo care which is not even close. His took care of the 8% that had nothing not mandate the 100%. Now the media says he is off shore as a safe haven re: Bain. Who isn’t all Fortune 500 are overseas this country has driven them out with 35% corp tax. People say Mitt is liberally moderate & I don’t see that he wants to get business going again he realizes that is who creates jobs not gvmnt. How many times can America keep getting deceived by a lot of ridiculous mis-characterizations then end the winner is the worst qualified in so many ways it is doubtful if even a citizen. Why not just do the right thing and CATCH the spirit and vote for MITT. And by the way, he being a Mormon is alas one LDSaint I would vote for certainly not the one who claims he is a Mormon that is the lib den majority leaders. People’s affiliations in organizations that are decent and good is one thing yet it gets down to the details of their skill set and not start ousting people based on prejudice and stereotyping.

You’ve been so poisoned by hateful rhetoric, you wouldn’t recognize the truth out of your own eyes, seeing the distortions so readily through the eyes of others. You do yourself a disservice by only looking for the bad in people because those you admire show it to you. Try looking for the good in all the candidates and then you can discern who really has this country’s best interests at heart. It may surprise you…

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/3QHK53EWTTB4L4YIMM7REHZFGA Tammy

    Do you even know what you’re talking about? Romney has never been a career Washington politician, has never voted on any congressional bills or laws, so he has no voting record that affects the American people as a whole. As for arrogance, Gingrich’s ego is bigger than Obama’s, and I can’t believe his arrogance in wanting all the other candidates to quit and get behind him as the candidate, when Santorum beat Gingrich very soundly in Iowa. I certainly wouldn’t want another big whiner in the White House crying about how unfair everyone is toward him. (Yes, I’m refering to Newt.)

    You do not know IF Newt has repented, or not!  We only know what he has said.  I have heard him say that he is Agnostic so I don’t put too much faith in what Mr. Newt the Beltway boy has to say.  In 2008 South Carolina voted for John McCain and as we know he went on to become the nominee for the Republican Party.  AND as you know, he lost and we lost.  Are we going to make the very same mistake again and vote a has-been, fat boy ousted from the Congress for ethics violations as our nominee.  Come on people.  Vote for a real bonafide candidate that can take the White House w/o doubt and one that has integrity and character!  That would be either Romney or Santorum.  Both are qualified men and could make excellent leaders.  We don’t need another Bill Clinton woman chaser in the White House – or another liar.

    By the way — you can look up anything on google and get as much bad information as good. Such conflicting information can’t all be true. It’s a shame that you only read & believe the bad. Anyone can put information out there (with whatever slant they want to give it), and anyone can read it and assume it is gospel truth.

    I’m shocked that you dislike someone for having the same qualities as the Newt you admire. Newt changes the subjct in many of his answers so he doesn’t have to actually answer the questions. He does this so skillfully, many of you haven’t even noticed. Newt is more arrogant than Obama, but you call that one of Romney’s faults. Please remove the blinders when you judge people’s similar flaws as if they’re totally different. At least Mitt didn’t have the arrogance to ask the two Ricks to quit their campaigns and ask their supporters to get behind him. Nor does he punish those who point out some defect in him — only Gingrich and Obama have ego problems like that. If you feel the need to judge, use the same standard for both. Almost everything you accuse Romeny of, Gingrich has done the same, if not worse. Try to balance your scales of justice, please.

    Please don’t state conjecture as facts in your posts. Until you have a firm grasp of the meaning of capitalism, and an understanding of investments, capital gains and business accounting procedures, try to refrain from creating imaginary evidence and scenarios about the business world. With today’s economy, it takes someone with a good amount of business acumen to get the spending and economy under control. Let’s look for someone with those qualifications to run our country, rather than being so quick to call someone a crook, with no real evidence to support that claim.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/3QHK53EWTTB4L4YIMM7REHZFGA Tammy

    If you haven’t heard him say it before, Glenn took full responsibilty for the failure of his first marriage and his addictions. He certainly has a better position from which to judge than I do. But the infidelity just adds another small step to the character flaws that make up the ladder that leads to Newt’s inability to see past himself (or his ego) to be of any benefit to others, including the people he wishes to govern as president. We already have a selfish, egotistic president, so why would we want another? There’s nothing wrong with someone not being able to stay married, as it happens to so many good people. Newt’s problem is that his conduct only proves a selfishness and desire to address and fulfill his own needs over those of others, which is a bad thing for our country, and those of us who love it more than we love ourselves.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/3QHK53EWTTB4L4YIMM7REHZFGA Tammy

    Too many Americans didn’t care about the personal life of Obama, so we were stuck with him for the past 3 years. It’s not so much that Glenn cares that Newt has been married & divorced, he cares about what we’re learning about Newt’s character. Newt may or may not have repented of his sins - who cares? What I care about is that Gingrich (including his behavior during this election cycle) has shown that Newt has never cared about anyone or anything as much as he cares about himself, and that he puts his own wants and desires before anyone else. It’s just a pattern of behavior that Glenn is trying to show, and definitely a pattern that scares me. Gingrich believes that getting what he wants (i.e. the nomination) justifies lying and stretching the truth about his opponents. I want a candidate that truely cares about me and my neighbors and my fellow Americans, who doesn’t merely have grand intellectual ideas, but who is a better doer than talker. I’m certainly not perfect, but I’ve discovered that it’s a lot more important to care about others. I may get stepped on occasionally, but it’s better than stepping on everyone else on my way to the top.

    well, if you wanna continue the anology, let’s say that you find out this “awesome” surgeon had some ethical violations that got him kicked off the medical board. say this same surgeon felt slighted by his boss and decided to disrupt a medical procedure as a way of “paying his boss back.” still want that guy operating on you?

    there’s a difference between being quick on your feet verbally (which most shady salesmen are, btw) and quick on your feet when the time comes to actually do something.

    i’m not a romney supporter for sure, but the analogy is a bit limited.

    I’m so glad you’re choosing your leader by how he looks to you. Some people aren’t as comfortable with talking as they are with getting the job done. We need doers, not good talkers. We already have one of those in the White House. Romney, after removing himself from his campaign 4 years ago, didn’t go home and whine & cry about not being given the nomination, he went right to work across the country doing fund-raisers and campaigning on behalf of McCain (since McCain was the one who won the nomination) and many other conservative candidates in tough elections in other states. Mitt may not be a polished debater or elocutionist, but he’s definitely smart when it comes to managing money, and when he sees an opportunity to help others, he does so whole-heartedly. He doesn’t merely stand on the sidelines pontificating on what needs to be done, with grandiose intellectual schemes, but jumps right in and helps out.

    So go ahead and vote for candidates according to the way they appear outwardly to you, and don’t bother to look past the exterior to the inner substance beneath. I’m not a good debater and my shyness makes people think I’m aloof, but I’ll get right to work when I see things that need to be done, especially if it’s to help others…even though others mistake my shyness and awkwardness for “acting” or being a snob. I’m glad you don’t live near me to judge me by my appearance & determine the type of person I am without getting to know me. I hope most of the voters are not as superficial as you sound.

    Sorry EIPzee, but you are only stating conjecture, not fact. Have Gingrich’s intellectual but reactionary statements clouded your judgment? When Gingrich has hipocritically accused Romney, of things he, himself has done, you say Gingrich is telling the truth and Romney is lying, but you can’t have it both ways. You can’t look at the inconsistencies in both candidates and merely assume that the one you like is telling the truth; therefore, the one you don’t like is the liar and manipulator. Take off your blinders and look into the hearts of both candidates without bias towards either and learn the truth for yourself, as Glenn always advocates. When you’ve fully done your researching, investigating the good and the bad about both, sincerely wanting to find the truth, beyond appearances, beyond biases — then you can actually state facts, not rhetoric. But since everyone wants to only believe the statements made by their favorite candidate, I’m not sure you’ll ever arrive at the full truth to back your convictions. Keep believing what you want about the different candidates, but you’ll never convince me (or a jury of your peers — unless they’re like-minded) that your statements are fully factual, as bias will always affect a factual outcome. When you’re ready to remove those blinders, speak from a position of truth, not bias, then you can have a much more educated, less emotional and reactionary debate with Glenn.

It makes you seem shallow and unscrupulous. Don’t do yourself such a disservice or to any others, merely because of the bias you feel toward them. It’s not funny or humorous in any way. You obviously don’t know him well enough to understand his values or his heart, you just listen to rhetoric from other like-minded people and think you have all the information you need. Don’t speak from a position of of ignorance and prejudice, wait till you know a person’s heart, not merely what others say about them.

    How long ago did you hear him say that he was agnostic?  From what I’ve read about him in the last couple years, it doesn’t seem to jive with the fact that he was a Southern Baptist and converted to Catholicism.  He and his current wife Calista were both granted annulments of their former marriages possibly due to neither being previously baptized into a specific religion, or their former spouses weren’t.  Only God knows if he truly repented in his heart for his past.   I’m not questioning because I support Newt…I had just never heard this about him before.  My gripe with him is that he idolizes 4 of the most Progressive presidents in history, thus I don’t see him as being conservative who would turn us around from the course we’re on.  I’m a Santorum supporter myself.  Thanks.

    So basically his religion is your main problem? Mormons have not practiced polygamy in over a hundred years, even though some of the cults that have broken off from the original church still engage in that practice. They are not acknowledged by the Mormon church, officially named The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Saints being the name given by Christ to those who were baptized and followed Him). The parents of George Romney ((Mitt’s dad) were called polygamists but they chose to practice monogamy instead (the one who left town). So I’m not sure where you dug up your facts. Wikipedia isn’t always absolutely correct. All members of the LDS church make their own decision about who they want to vote for — their religion doesn’t dictate which candidate to vote for (unlike some who actually tell their congregations NOT to vote for a Mormon). However, if they do choose Romney, they consider his past positions and realize that all men can change for the better, including Newt, and choose whichever candidate is best able to serve their country, more than serving themselves. I would obviously want someone who knows how to manage money more than spend it, who understands the concept of capitalism, capital gains and has enough business acumen to make important decisions without playing politics with America’s money, whose job experience doesn’t merely extend to politcs and lecturing as an educator, but involves real-world experience. Those are just a few of the qualifications many Americans, like myself, would hope to find in the leader of our country in the not-too-distant future. If you’ve ever really listened to Glenn, you’ve heard him tell everyone not to take his word for anything, but do the research yourself. He mostly wants people to not merely believe all of Gingrich’s rhetoric against his opposition, but take time to pretend you’re actually a supporter of the other candidates for a little while and learn more about them from their own messages, instead of letting one of the others tell you about other candidates from their biased point of view. When you’ve done all that, maybe then you can lecture Glenn.

    Because character matters and Beck is NOT the one running for the greatest office in the land he’s been repeating over and over the personalitie and policies of the candidates and apparently not too many are listening.  What he’s saying is that people seem more enthralled with figuratively busting O’s chops in a debate rather than voting on character and content for saving this country.  Of the 4 candidates remaining, Newt is the most Progressive and he wouldn’t turn America around because Newt actually likes the policies of FDR, Teddy R, Andrew Jackson and the evil Woodrow Wilson…4 of the most Progressive Presidents in American History.   The man is frustrated because of his own ineptness in reaching people about who Newt has always been over the years, and currently, since this is the most important election we may ever see in our lifetime.  Yes, sometimes he and the guys get carried away, but sometimes humor relieves their intensity of trying to get their point across. He wants the best candidate of the four…and Newt isn’t it.  Our country is on the verge of total destruction in numerous ways and it is people like Newt that led us down the wrong path for many many years. Bec did apologize today for his demeanor…you musta’ missed that part?  If God isn’t pleased with Beck, I’m sure HE will let Beck know in some form or another…it’s not your call.

    I met Mr. Gingrich over 20 years ago, and in all this time he has never changed. He has always stood fast on American Values, on economy, finance, justice, world policies, and what the Commander and Chief should do use the armed forces to protect Americans, of the USA. Respect our allies and take a stand on Illigel Migration whom ever they might be. Mr. tonybigs has said it all. God is watching, and my prayer is that God will gide Mr. Gingrich in his indevers.

    Beck is not starstruck over Romney, but he will stick up for any candidate if others totally lie about them.  He is about truth, does his research, and if he finds out he is wrong, he admits it.  Beck likes Santorum the best since Michele Bachmann dropped out, but he said he vote for an inanimate object before he’d ever vote for O.  Perhaps you’ve missed a few shows?

    Really?! So it’s okay for you to slander Romney, but not okay for someone to show Gingrich in a bad light? ABC ran another program about Bain Capital two nights before the program with Gingrich’s ex-wife, but Romney didn’t whine and cry about how unfair that was right before the SC Primary. Why is there such a double standard? It’s okay for you and Gingrich to say bad things about the other candidates, but not okay when they reciprocate (without all the whining 1st)? And landofaahs, do you even know anything about business ventures, capitalism, capital gains, or running a business? I know you don’t because if you did, you wouldn’t be spewing the same ignorant rhetoric you’ve seen in the Gingrich ads, that could just as easily have been written by Obama and the left, who are anti-capitalism. Why don’t you learn facts before repeating things you’ve merely heard and thought sounded good. Why don’t you look at all your options (there are more than 2 candidates afterall), not just someone who has always worked in politics and knows how to lecture so well to the students in his. Talk is cheap… especially when it’s intellectual pontificating. Obama was good at that too.

  • jen

    I never called business experience equivalent to being a crook.  It is when you hide those documents when running for public office that makes you question hard what that person has to hide as that is what crooks do.
    Romney pitched himself as a top salesman and ceo running for gov of MA, then he delivered Romneycare – first socialized medicine in the US using liberal advisors and a blueprint that Obama liked so much. He used over $300 million in federal funds for Romneycare.  Hence, understanding of microecon/business is not equivalent to how he performed as Gov.
    Romney’s plan was graded F by Club of Growth as he is calling for ‘permanent deficit’.  Spending is now 23% of GDP, while Romney only wants to cap it to 20%.  His economic plan is highly vague about programs to cut, as whichever bucket you want to cut from results in opening up to scrutiny.  Again, he is being the typical politician who speaks big, empty words.
    To get the spending and economy under control requires reforming the Federal Reserve system, which he refuses to do.
    Tammy – you have bought into with joy the hypocritical words, perhaps you are as hypocritical and allergic to truth.

    The analogy is nonsensical. You’re comparing apples with oranges. In this case, your brain surgeon actually has only experience in the intellectual process of brain surgery, got into it for the glory, and has lectured on it numerous times, but his hands-on experience and time in surgery was shortened by his fellow surgeons kicking him off the hospital roster for unethical behavior. He now wants to return and be the head brain surgeon or even hospital administrator to feed his huge ego. Your thoracic surgeon in this political debate learned ALL the different skills needed to be able to perform in many different aspects of being a surgeon (not only thoracic), as well as being a hospital administrator, and learned them by experience. He doesn’t even want to be acknowledged for his great surgical skills, but would be happy to step in if it would help save a life. His best skills however are as hospital administrator and in keeping the hospital from bankruptcy and financially viable. Moreso, due to all the lawsuits from the incompetency of the current head of surgery (who is also taking money or other vital organs from his patients to fund his own redistribution plan), that both surgeons, brain and thoracic, would like to fire this November.

    First all, I have never heard a Gingrich ad, I get all my info off the internet because the prestitutes make my stomach lurch.
    Second, I do not mind creative destruction, but sometimes it is not necessary and is done because companies are having cash flow problems and get taken over by corporate raiders. It’s legal, but most of the time the workers get shafted by a loss of pensions. Anyone can be a corporate raider, but it takes years to build an honest business.

    Ryan – I just did a whole litany of Pros and Cons – and before I was done I lost it. I have some aside in a raw file that I will redo and send. But essentially what I tried to do was show things in 2 veins – 1st are the characteristics that make him a really good candidate (cons being also) and 2nd, the stands he has been taking that make him someone the conservatives would want. I will get it back together for you soon. In the mean time, there are several websites (left and right) that you can google to see their take on it. Remember, I am not taking sides, I am explaining why people would choose Newt – something some here can’t get and insist on taking their campaign to me about. HEY PEOPLE… I AM NOT SIDING! SO DON’T CAMPAIGN TO ME! Rather than look to me for ‘who is the best candidate’, people posting here should do more legwork themselves – so to speak – research what is available WITH AN OPEN MIND take it all in, list pros and cons and determine which are really important in actually running this country and solving the problems that put us in this mess. Some traits in the candidates that put them in the naughty chair as it relates to their personal lives can be part of the psychological makeup that also makes a great leader. I personally have to work at separating my feelings for personal issues from those of the politic and what is really important. RESEARCH AN THINK PEOPLE!

    Running a business for profit is not the same as running a country – government is not run for a profit – not supposed to be anyway. Do I want someone who is so dazzled by $$$ running the country? who will they succumb to for $$$$ ? This is where the argument can go.

    And how can anyone be sure that she wasn’t paid to say those things about Newt? It’s seems like this goes right along with the normal Democratic MO, first Cain, now Newt. And looking back to the past, what about the unsubstantiated accusations against Clarence Thomas? 
    It seems to me that the best we can do with these conveniently timed accusations is to say, “Ho-Hum. Talk to me when you have the proof,” and move on.
    Are people really too dimwitted to figure this out?
    Yet, Clinton, when he was proven to be a despicable sex pervert, lied and got a pass! He lied to Congress and remained as President. Nixon lied to cover up for those who were responsible for Watergate, and he had to leave office in disgrace. I doubt anyone hates infidelity and lying anymore than I, but let’s be real here. The question, if Newt’s infidelity (how many years ago?) is still an issue to be considered at this time, is this:Can God forgive? And has Newt repented, and changed his ways? In other words, is he still living a life of infidelity? If so, prove it, but don’t take some paid-off bimbo’s word for it.

    First of all this was over 12 years ago. Secondly Somehow, that doesn’t sound the way Newt would say it. In fact, he would have made the various decisions to leave before that ‘conversation’. Try this site, because the  list is humongous.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federal_political_scandals_in_the_United_States

    Newt was a snake. So was Clinton. JFK couldn’t begin to count his escapades, but notably included Marilyn Monroe, and Judy Exner… Big Sam Giancana’s main squeeze. Lets not leave out they gays and lesbians. Barney Frank who got his lovers appointed at a variety of agencies. Same for Napolitano, Sibelius, etc., etc. Dickie Durbin who takes care of his gay buddies by presenting/sponsoring every piece of homosexual legislation the past 4 years..  Chris Dodd and Edward Kennedy were known for frequent drinking/sex binges (so says Secret Service) Hillary had her moments with ‘close associates’ Bobby Kennedy -(so says Secret Service). I am sure the retarded “I already know the facts, don’t confuse me with the truth” bunch will scream. And that’s why it goes on and one. ALL politicians think they are above the law. Recently, NY’s Chuckie Schumer disparaged a nice female Cabin Attendant by telling her he was talking to Harry Reid, and that meant he could keep talking?? Sure, he apologized after being forced into apology. Oh… guess who Schumer was grooming as his “Protege” to take his seat when he retires in 2018. Anthony “in your face” Weiner. Weiner was married to Hillary’s ‘close Assistant’ Huma. And, another co-incidence, Chelsea Clinton is married to a man whose Father was pardoned from the Federal Pen by… BILL CLINTON. What strange coincedental situations.

He graduated from Harvard Law School and Business School. Romney saved the Salt Lake Olympics; he was a great governor of a major state; he started a business that generated monies for companies who hired 100,000 people. Now, he is asking for our votes. Many castigate Romney ( without any knowledge of the subject)  for being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Later Day Saints. What is wrong with belonging to a church which professes faith in Jesus Christ?

    I like pompous attitudes. They are better than sneaky ones. You are another Holier-than-thou who has a PERFECT past. Let’s put yours on display for the whole world to see at the moment you are about to start a great debate. It was done just to knock him off his stride.

    Did you NOT hear when they asked Romney if he would of signed the defense bill (detaining American citzens without cause or trial hold indefintely) with the same language that Obama singed if he was president Romney said………….YES!!!!!  If that doesn’t bother anyone here then you’re not understanding what the heck is going on …….do your homework. Since romney answered yes he WILL NEVER GET MY VOTE, and hiding his money off shore in a bank come on people PLEASE WE CAN’T AFFORD TO BE FOOLED AGAIN THIS ELECTION WILL BE DO OR DIE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND HER COUNTRY….DAMN IT THINK PEOPLE THINK!!!!!!

    So, you have no argument and only choose to try and make a statement about me calling a spade, a spade. If you are dumb, I will tell you and you are dumb. My arguments are right there and yet you saw none of it, moron.

    Wrong. It’s people like you who will get Obamao reelected. People like you continue to vote for which ever media/establishment lackey they tell you to vote for. People like you think it’s the “lesser of two evils.” Well, no more. We have been doing that for decades and look where it has put our country. People like you think it’s someone else that has to compromise but not you. I will no compromise and vote for a GWB. I will vote for the only person that cares about this country and it’s citizens. Since people like you know that we will not compromise, you are the ones handing Obamao reelection, not us. You can pull the lever for Ron Paul and choose not to.

    Just make sure you give the same response when the rumors and lies are spread about all candidates, not just the Republican ones.  Otherwise, you become hypocritical and I’m sure you remember how Jesus railed against hypocrites.

    Or you could quit believing all the lies and propaganda against President Obama.  He’s very intelligent, quick on his feet in the extremely bad situation he inherited, and is a wonderful family man, devoted to his wife and children.  He’s not a wild liberal – ask the wild liberals who are upset with him for being moderate and trying to get people to work together.  Did people really expect that anyone could turn Bush’s worst recession since the Great Depression around overnight.  The economy is getting better even though the House Republicans are doing everything they can to maintain a stalemate so they can use it to win more seats in 2012.  I believe there are a lot of intelligent people in this country that see that very clearly.  Even some reasonable and patriotic Republicans in Congress are saying it.  People in the legislature need to unite and find ways to work together to do what’s best for the country, not just what’s best for their own political careers.  Any president can only do so much.  Even the Speaker of the House can’t seem to lead them.  United we stand, divided we fall.

    Okay.  I looked Dornan up.  Here are some of the comments. And your point is???  My point is look it up first–then comment and still be leery of what politicians say about each other.
         Dornan punched Democratic Congressman Tom Downey, a Democrat from Long Island, on the floor of the House of Representatives. Granted, that’s a lot more entertaining than your average congressional debate, but many people consider it over the top.    Dornan’s comments and behavior have led his political opponents to question his mental health. Mike Kaspar of the Orange County Democratic Party said “The primary issue is Bob Dornan, himself. I think his character and his own sanity are an issue here.”[12] At a White House Correspondents Dinner, Al Franken (who is actually a friend of Dornan) joked “having Al D’Amato leading an ethics investigation is like getting Bob Dornan to head up a mental health task force.    Dornan’s wife Sallie has left him 3 or 4 times, and alleged in several aborted divorce suits over 16 years that he beat her. For example, in her 1961 divorce suit she stated under oath that he “dragged her about the home… by her hair and … exhibited a revolver.”In June 1966, Dornan was found guilty of a “violent attack” on his wife and was ordered to go to jail, though police records do not show him actually serving any time.After Dornan’s opponent in his 1992 re-election brought up these old charges, Sallie recanted, saying that alcohol and drug addiction drove her to falsely accuse him of beating her. She said “I am a Christian. I am a good wife. I am a good mother, but I sure as hell wasn’t then. It’s just very sad that Bob had to suffer what I brought down on his head through illness, major illness.” Sad, indeed.

    You sound a lot like the Left who proclaim only they care about America, and we should all agree with them.  
        On what planet are you hearing the media and establishment tell anyone to vote for Newt?  Wake Up–these are Primaries.  It is the folks who will not compromise at any cost that may get Obama re-elected by staying home pouting in the General Election.  Even Ron Paul has said he will support whomever the final nominee is–as I and most real Conservatives and Tea Party supporters will do too.
        It is one thing to push for a brokered convention like Ron Paul is doing, and another to hand the election to Obama like all those on the Left and the Right that keep urging Ron to do by running as a Third Party if he (and those like you) do not get their way.  And you call yourself not doing what the media tells you to do.  Stop pouting and truly support the wishes of your own candidate. Losing 100% of what you want to Obama is simply silly.  You know very well Newt has supported the correction of the Fed and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for decades.  He also supports keeping the Congress in charge of declaring war.

    Glenn,
    I usually like what you have to say. The question here is, “Are you a dirtbag?” Why don’t you have only one wife? You of all people ought to understand that a man with a past is not necessarily thrown in the trash because of the past. If Newt should go away, so should you.

    I agree with you.  I am tired of people trying to stuff Romney down my throat.  I am smarter than that.  I will vote for Newt.

    I can’t believe Beck even posted this trash.  I have now lost all the respect I use to have for his opinions.

    Who really knows what happened in this marriage but who are we to judge a man that may have or may not have done what she said.  It’s his word against hers.  He without sin can cast the first stone.  If Newt was unfaithful to his second wife and asked forgiveness from his God then you need to respect that answer and not judge it and go on.  We have more important things to worry about than his marital problems.  You are taking the word of a woman who is trying to get even and especially doing this just before the SC primary.  I don’t have a whole lot of respect for her either for doing it the way she did.  She needs to get on with her life and get over it.

    I researched and found out what is being said about BO – over the years …it is not a matter of ‘believing all the lies and propaganda against President Obama. He’s very intelligent, quick on his feet in the extremely bad situation he inherited, and is a wonderful family man, devoted to his wife and children.” That is all BS. He’s not a wild Liberal – … actually – you may not want to admit that he is a wild liber (BS it is a mater of symantics, isn’t it.) … lets’s translate – the man is a socialist…. that is beyond liberal … documented by his association with the Chicago Democratic Socialist Party of Chicago, Amer. He was a “card carrying member” and even though most of it has been scrubbed from the web, and those of us who have have some damaginf info about him have been targetted, it is still there.

    BHO may be a wonderful family man, but it has nothing to do with his political crap.

    The economy is getting better regardless of the damage BHO and his admin did in light of their misguided beliefs that if you throw $$ at it it will make everything better. It is unfortunate that they did that, because it would be getting better faster after taking the dive they were so afraid of, that it ended up taking.

    I am only giving my comments to you after what you wrote in response to me. As I have other more important issues to deal with at the moment, I will not engage in any further dialog with you or anyone else, on this subject. We will have to agree to disagree if you do not see my point, and anyone else will have to ignore this or use it as an EGO stage. If that is the case, then go for it, EGOtists! Because I decline to address EGO points that will be sure to follow.

    Nothing, of course.
