    Link: Newt Gingrich Slams `Open Marriage` Question - Should a man that left the mother of his children, when she was struggling with cancer, even use the word `despicable`?

    If he weren`t such a vocal proponent of ethics or preserving the sanctity of traditional marriage, people wouldn`t care so much about this sort of thing.

    From some of his other quotes, he seems almost Randian in nature. Money is his first and only priority.

    Worse, it looks like he`s on track to win.

    A billionaire could bribe this guy to drop out, but that`s not going to happen.

    If it comes down to Gingrich vs Obama, you`ll have yet another no-win choice.

    These people cheering and clapping for him are probably the same people demanding Bill Clinton be impeached for getting a hummer and demanding A. Weiner resign for accidentally tweeting a photo of his junk to the public.

    A) You`re running for public office. You don`t want your dirty laundry aired, don`t do that.
    B) The majority of your political stance is on "family values" and "ethics", why should we even listen to you if you are hypocritical of the very proponents you stand for?

    Despicable? Take a look in the mirror Newt.

    Just wanna point out it was his second wife Marianne who made the comments about an open marriage, not his first wife Jackie who had cancer. Not sure if you meant to connect the two, but agree regardless that he is a despicable human being.

    He can shame the media for asking about it all he wants, but the fact is, when a candidate is prepared to deny basic civil rights to minorities in this country based on "family values" principles, his own family values should be relevant.

    Let`s say the ex wife is bitter and lieing.
    SO WHAT!!!
    He cheated on the 1st wife and dumped her on mothers day in the hospital where she was being treated for breast cancer.
    Then he cheated on his second wife and dumps her after the doctors said she has MS and shouldn`t have any stress.

    But he has the "despicable" balls to talk about the sanctity of marriage?
    What a douche bag.

I`m appalled you are such a hypocrite and the moderator didnt have the common sense to call you out on the fact that you had no problems slinging mud at bill clinton for his infidelities. Lastly im glad your mom and dad named you NEWT because it fits you so well you slime ball reptile go drat yourself and drop out already.

    @ OutWest - You think they picked on him for being Republican? So what happened to John Edwards and Anthony Weiner? Two Democrats with marital shenanigans that were heavily reported in the news?

    The label "Liberal Media" is not true. Studies show an actual conservative leaning. But it`s good for the GOP to use that label every time they get bad press.

    And there are people stupid enough to believe it.

    if newt gets the nomination he can be sure that the dems will rightfully come at him like a frieght train for cheating not on one but on two wives.

    the gop is always quick to talk about family values and such and yet as usual they act like hypocrites when it comes to their own side.

    gop, either dump this ahole or forever lose what credibility you have left.

I say we should dig up All the dirt on all of`em, ask them why,when,how.. and make them answer. The president looses their right of privacy when they take office... what they do and what they`ve done IS who they are!

    "The label "Liberal Media" is not true. Studies show an actual conservative leaning. But it`s good for the GOP to use that label every time they get bad press."

    The only way that the formula for Fox News could work is by creating the lie that the media is liberal. That way they can say that they report the truth that the liberal media won`t show you. And to keep this lie going they say the phrase "the liberal media" all day long day in and day out. Because if a trusted source says something enough times, no matter how ridiculous, it becomes truth. With this lie firmly planted in their viewers heads Fox News can present pure sensationalism and call it news. After all they report what the "liberal media" wont show you. Sadly this is what people have come to expect from their news. Fox News and their over the top use of sensationalism has ruined news forever. MSNBC quickly followed suit and now CNN is getting into the game.

    It`s just like Bill Maher says. When the Republicans get caught "with their pants down", or being outright wrong, they never apologize or admit it in any way. In fact, they double down on it. Newt just pulled a classic example. Instead of showing humility or shame or remorse, he just threw it right back in the moderator`s face.

    Republicans: "Who cares about this?!"

    Everyone else: "YOU DO!"

    Marriage is sacred, sanctity of Marriage, Impeach Clinton, Protect Marriage, Marriage Pledge, Family Values, We`re the values party, How dare Weiner, How dare Edwards, How dare Clinton, but NEWT IS GREAT!

    The point of the question is hypocrisy, and it demonstrates that there is no value held by this candidate, that he has not already abandoned long before he announces it.

    Gerry: Not to mention this statement.

    Not to mention his account of events (that she left him) was shown to be an outright lie in the court papers. (Remember Newt fans, it wasn`t that Clinton had the affair... it was that he lied about it...).

    This lie that the media somehow doesn`t ever go after Obama is obvious. They go after the tiniest things: Teleprompter, Sandals, Flagpin, Golf, Breakfast, Preacher, Community Organizer, Fistbump, Handshake.

    You think they wouldn`t go after 3 affairs WHILE running as a family values candidate?

    Baal: The media never goes after Obama, because Obama hides from the press as much as possible.

    Gingrich didn`t cheat on either of his wives, that`s a complete and total lie, his daughters have confirmed those rumors to be lies. He did NOT leave his first wife because she had cancer, she NEVER HAD CANCER, she had a benign tumor removed, Marianne claimed he left her because she was diagnosed with MS, another bullpoo lie. Marianne DOES NOT HAVE MS, not then and not now, a doctors told here she has markers for it and that sometime in the future she `could` get MS.

    Newt never asked for a `Open Marriage`, another lie. His current wife would never accept such an arraignment, she`s devout Catholic.

    These smears are complete bullpoo, made up by Obama`s most favored news ally ABC. This was a piss poor hatchet job, that was easily proved to be all lies.

    While I definitely dislike the new democrats, which are ultra liberals tolerant of everything except Christian based religion, I also dislike Ultra conservatives, who think their beliefs should rule your decisions. With that said, it is a sin in in Catholicism to be divorced. My mom was excommunicated from the church when she got divorced, so this fella should not qualify as an ultra conservative. But he will try, as he is definitely an ultra douche bag. Probably even more than Obama. Oh, guess I`m a racist now.

    It doesn`t matter who wins the Republican nomination. Obama may be a lame duck President (up for debate), but he`s probably a better option than any of the currect contingent of f*cking moonbats that the Republicans have to offer. He’ll be re-elected.

    On one hand, you`ve got Santorum, with his equating gay marriage with polygamy. On the other hand, you got Newt wanting (apparently) to be a polygamist. Take Newt: Strong stance on family razy values, right? Yet he`s on his third marriage. I won`t even bother delving into the other sh*t, such as his two divorces. Hey, he left his wife on her deathbed with cancer all the while dicking his help... anyways, not important. Sanctity of Marriage is what we`re talking about here, right?

    The POINT is, people are more intelligent than the powers that be take them for, you mark my word on that. And all those people have a vote. And vote they will.

    The very same reason that religion is undenyably dying, is because these religious institutions teach and applaud ignorance and partition. It`s what they do. They built an empire on it. And people don’t want ignorance. Ignorance is a dead-end street, and people are smarter than that. I firml

    Here`s the bombshell: And I`m sure I`ll be lambasted for saying such a heinous thing. People in general are more intelligent than Republicans take them for. And every single one of them has a vote.

    Obama will still be there in 2012, for another four years, I assure you. And unless the Republicans buck up their ideas, they’re going to go the way of dinosaurs.

    That`s a bullsh|t lie. His first wife NEVER HAD CANCER, She was NOT DYING. She had a benign tumor removed. Quit parroting BS from liberal websites.

    Jackie Gingrich Cushman, his daughter, rebutted persistent rumors that her father served divorce papers on her mother the day after cancer surgery. In the column, Cushman writes that papers were never served in the hospital, and that her mother did not actually have cancer.

    "My mother and father were already in the process of getting a divorce, which she requested," Cushman wrote.

    Gingrich cheated on his first wife of 18 years and the mother of his children. Left her in 1980 and married the woman he was cheating with. Then cheated on this second wife. Left her in 2000 and married the woman he was cheating with. And he`ll cheat on her too if he hasn`t already.

    No amount of spin or lies can make this turd smell good.

    One party always loves to say this about the other party. But the facts are in the first 31 months of a presidents administration ...

    Obama has taken 61 days facation.
    Bush took 180 days in the first 31 months.
    Clinton took 28 days vacation
    1st Bush - no info
    Reagan took 112 days vacation in his first 31 months.

    Serioiusly dude, Obama has messed up enough on his own without making things up. Or listening to FOX.

    Jackie Cushman the same person who`d been working to broaden Newt`s appeal, sorry but I doubt her statement considering she has something to lose over this revelation. Gingrich`s ex-wife only has publicity to gain.

    Gerry: Going home to one`s ranch doesn`t count as a `vacation`, sorry bud. Bush`s Crawford ranch was called `The western white house` for damn good reason. Both GW Bush and Reagan worked, that means performed official duties including signing bills, negotiating, etc.. at their ranches.

    So take those weak sh|t statistics and go flush them.

    And Camp David doesn`t count becasue it`s government propery and not a "real" vacation.

    Come one, stop making excuses for Bush. He took WAY more vacation than anyone else. Just deal with it.

    Baalthazaq said: "Republicans: "Who cares about this?!"

    Everyone else: "YOU DO!"

    Marriage is sacred, sanctity of Marriage, Impeach Clinton, Protect Marriage, Marriage Pledge, Family Values, We`re the values party, How dare Weiner, How dare Edwards, How dare Clinton, but NEWT IS GREAT!

    The point of the question is hypocrisy, and it demonstrates that there is no value held by this candidate, that he has not already abandoned long before he announces it. "

    Bravo, sir. That just about sums it up perfectly.

    "This lie that the media somehow doesn`t ever go after Obama is obvious. They go after the tiniest things: Teleprompter, Sandals, Flagpin, Golf, Breakfast, Preacher, Community Organizer, Fistbump, Handshake."

    Also well played. Conservatives love to blame the media, but never hesitate to use it to their advantage either. What a bunch of whiney little pussies.

    @ CrakerJak - yes, I agree. She was paid and therefore here "story" is suspicious. So let`s just stick to what is hard fact.

    He did cheet on his first wife.
    He did dump her in the cancer ward of the hospital on mothers day.
    He then cheeted on his second wife.
    He proceded to dump her after doctors diagnosed her with MS and said not to give her any stress.
    He`s currently on wife number 3 and procedes to tell other people about the sanctity of marriage.

    This is like a crack addict hosting a Healthy Living show. He is not credable on this topic.

    Learn something about our political system, before you put your foot in your mouth again.

    Gerry: Obama doesn`t have a home in Hawaii, in fact he didn`t own a home until he bought one from Tony Rezko, his neighbor, in Chicago.
    I would agree that Camp David isn`t vacation time either, it`s there to negotiate and entertain foreign leaders without the scrutiny of paparazzi and news hounds.

    Definitely Obama has taken more vacation and rounds of golf, than any other president.

Those two falsehoods alone should relegate this hatchet job right into the trash can, but no, they took the lies even further saying he left both of them when they were ill.

    Please don`t investigate the truth on your own, keep repeating that liberal libel, maybe you`ll fool enough people to distract from Obama`s idiocy. <sarcasm>

    I`m reposting. It is the core of what Gingrich did that makes him such a scumbag. Newt`s reaction to his wives cancer and MS scares are just added knives to their side. Even if those are removed his infidelities are what makes him someone that American citizens should not trust:

    Gingrich cheated on his first wife of 18 years and the mother of his children. Left her in 1980 and married the woman he was cheating with. Then cheated on this second wife. Left her in 2000 and married the woman he was cheating with. And he`ll cheat on her too if he hasn`t already.

    No amount of spin or lies can make this turd smell good.

    CrakrJak said "Definitely Obama has taken more vacation and rounds of golf, than any other president."

    "So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch."

    @ CrakrJak, okay we`ll just ignore facts.
    Obama has more vacation time `cause he has 61 vacation days and Bush only took 180. 61 is more than 180 in your world.

    If you live in Washington, and you work in Washington, then going to Crawford texas is a vacation... like having a lake home. Just because you own it does not mean your time on the lake is not vacation.

    Crakr...I know you`re smarter than this. You WANT to believe Obama is wrong so badly you`ll believe anything despite evidence or fact. Really, dude, I know you`re smarter than that.

    If that wasn`t enough, Obama has the worst economic record of any president to date and just violated the constitution by making illegal appointments.

    vacation - Noun:
    An extended period of recreation, esp. one spent away from home or in traveling.

    Please note the "away from home" part. Obama`s `home` is in Chicago, not Hawaii.

    Gerry: No, we don`t agree. The misuse of the word `vacation` by liberals to cover for Obama`s nonfeasance is disingenuous.

    He`s not unlike the movie character `Biff Tannen` expecting others to do his work for him and take the blame if things fail.

    16 people, Phil Carter, Greg Craig, Matthew Hoh, Anita Dunn, Ellen Moran, Yosi Sergant, Melissa Hathaway, Susan Crawford, Steve Rattner, Van Jones, Mark Lippert, Peter Orszag, Chistina Romler, Larry Summers, Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley have all resigned from the Obama administration. Most of them fall guys for Obama`s failed policies.

    In comparison GW Bush had only 9 people resign in 8 years, and most of them happened right after 9/11 (before October 2002).

    I am aware. But Newt Gingrich even carried on with an affair at the very same time that he was carrying on with the Clinton impeachment. If you can`t see the hypocrisy in that then you deserve to have your own country with Newt Gingrich leading you into a Dickensian nightmare. Just don`t elect him here.

    Here`s what I see:
    1)Newt, HUSBAND, the PLAINTIFF, filed for divorce!
    2)Battley, later (as you mentioned) RESPONDED asking for alimony.

    Any manipulation in these documents would amount to PERJURY, thus Gingrich should not be running for president. As for your ranking, that is strictly a matter of OPINION.
