Yes, Brainy. Let us get someone in to office that "believes in the sanctity of marriage" but leaves his first wife after she was diagnosed with cancer, and then leaves his second wife after she was diagnosed with MS and because he thought she was too ugly to be the wife of the president of the US.

Seriously, you are cutting off your nose to spite my face, to not-so-slightly twist a saying.

So you'll base your vote based on the personal lives of the candidates?

When it comes to being convicted of crimes/ethics violations/whatever the ---- Brainy tries to redefine it as over actions taken while in office?

You betcha.

P.S. Marriage comment was to point out Gingrich's hypocrisy, not a substantial commentary on his political stances. The closest Gingrich has to a "reasoned political stance" on anything is what his handler's tell him to say that day.
P.P.S. http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2011/11...lip-flops.html - Gingrich has, in some cases, taken 2 days to completely change his stance on things.

The problem is that Newt talks about how important marriage is while he campaigns, but does not practice in his personal like what he preaches in his public life. This means he is a hypocrite, and who wants to vote for a hypocrite? Not this guy.

Newt asked his wife for permission, Clinton didn't. Please, explain the difference.

Newt asked his wife for permission after the fact. And he divorced his 1st wife when she had cancer, and wife #2 while she had MS. Wife #3 best stay healthy.

Hustly, you just put yourself in a position where you have to defend Clinton now. Congrats.

Seriously, Gingrich is everything that.....Oh man, everything that the hard right tries to attribute to Clinton or Obama but isn't true.

And yet, he gets a pass for what? The R in front of his name? C'mon guys.

It wouldn't surprise me if Gingrich said he was a Muslim at one point or another for political points. Hell, he's told an audience in the past few days he'd fully support a Muslim president - but it was tailored to the specific audience.

Okay, it hurts but it's funnny.

Ron Paul Supporter Likes The Way Paul Tells It Like It Has No Chance Of Being

Quote:


RICHMOND, IN—Self-proclaimed strict constitutionalist and freethinker Rick Crawford told reporters Monday he is supporting Ron Paul in the 2012 Republican presidential primaries because of the way the candidate looks people directly in the eye, doesn't mince words, and tells it like it will never, ever be in a million years. "Ron cuts right through the fat and doesn't sugarcoat anything when he talks about policies that would be absolutely impossible to implement, like abolishing the federal income tax, eliminating Medicare, or putting the nation's currency back on the gold standard," Crawford said as he pounded a hand-painted "Ron Paul 2012" sign in his front lawn. "He's not afraid to give Americans no-nonsense straight talk about his completely delusional fantasy world. That's why I'm part of the highly unlikely Ron Paul revolution." Sources close to Crawford's family said his wife supports Mitt Romney because of the way he tells it like people want to hear it.

to both.


The real reasons Hustler will vote for Gingrich:
1) To move out of his over-bearing stepfather's household, young Newt - as a high school senior - managed to seduce and marry his math teacher. Also

2) Because Hustler hopes that something of Bob Gingrich, that over-bearing stepfather, makes it in to the White House:
Quote:
"Some people thought I was too rough with Newt," admits Bob, who wound up as a colonel in the army that had initially rejected him. "I just wanted him to get out of the house and earn a living." He says he never hugged Newt. "You don't do that with boys. I didn't even do it with my girls." He looks at his wife. "When was the last time I told you I loved you?"

"That's a good question," Kit comments.

"If I tell you once, that's all that's necessary," he announces to the family. "If it ever changes, I'll let you know."
And on discipline:
Quote:
When the family was living in France, in a town on the Loire called Beaugency, about 20 miles from Orleans, curfew in the household was 11 p.m. --even though Newt was 15 years old. One night, the boy and a friend stayed out in town until two a.m. M.P.'s dragged the boys home.

"I took him inside," Bob proudly recalls, "grabbed him by the lapels, and I smashed him against the wall. We were face-to-face. Newt was bug-eyed. Then I dropped him. There was no need to shout. He didn't do it again."
3) Because Newt has a romanticized, stylized image of himself and his place in the history of the USA and it is modeled after John Wayne.
