I find it strange that the vows he made to his ex-wifes in front of god and within the confines of a sacred traditional marriage meant nothing, but somehow he expects people to believe that a completely meaningless election year pledge is the magic ticket to fidelity.

Any person that can betray the trust of their own spouse in such a callous and calculated way not once, but many times over a long period of time, has lost any chance at trust or respect from any rational person. If the people you claim to love and promised to spend your entire life with can't trust you, than nobody else can either.

Newt is such a scumbag that I can't help but to lose respect for anyone that would be stupid enough to vote for him.

Ron Paul will not loose in 2012, if he can only make it there ...

Newt Gingrich to gay Iowan: Vote for Obama | Iowa Caucuses
I seem to remember a thread not long ago where Mitt Romney had a similar encounter.

Mitt was civil enough but told the gay person confronting him that he did not believe in discriminating against anyone based upon their sexual orientation, but that he believed marriage is between a man and a woman. A number of folks felt that Mitt was being a big meanie.

I believe I remember saying (and others saying) at the time, "That was a more civil response than he'd have gotten from any of the other GOP candidates."

Well, here's some proof to that effect. Gay person confronts Newt and essentially gets told, "Go *********rself, obviously you'll want to vote for Obama."

Interesting, I actually saw a CNN video clip of the confrontation and I recall Gingrich saying if marriage is your main concern to vote for Obama but if jobs and economy was your main concern to vote for him.

What is so incredibly ironic about your post is that ...

1. You seem to have never made a mistake in your life....never cheated, never did anything wrong...and you believe that entitles you to judge others and make a decision that nobody lives with mistakes and changes because of them. In fact...if we follow your way of thinking, we should never let anyone out of jail...never consider them rehabilitated...never give anyone another chance.

2. You do not question the intelligence of anyone who would vote for obama after seeing with your own eyes how he has literally put this country on the brink of total collapse. $15 trillion in debt...no clear path tpo prosperity...no plan...no clue....yet YOU seem to think that anyone voting obama is a genius.

My God....if I ever meet a ******* who is not waist deep in ignorance and hypocrisy, I think I'll shake his hand and buy him a Daniel Webster CEEEGAR.

Yes....true....but as usual, that would not suit the ******* argument against newt. So they bend reality to fit their arguments because if they just dealt in truth & reality they would probably have nothing to say.

That sounds more like it. Another manufactured controversy started from the leftist blogosphere.

What the gays seem to forget is that OBAMA is also against gay marriage......why is that, do you think?
