FormerHouse Speaker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speaker_%28politics%29)Newt Gingrich (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newt_Gingrich) set up a new low in political claptrap this week by claiming his love of country forced him to seek love with women other than wives one and two and — given his history — will probably eventually lead to an end to the marriage with his current wife.
Gingrich, one of the loudest critics ofPresident Bill Clinton (http://www.clintonlibrary.gov/) for entertaining White House (http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=38.8976694444,-77.03655&spn=0.01,0.01&q=38.8976694444,-77.03655%20%28White%20House%29&t=h) internMonica Lewinsky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monica_Lewinsky) with cigars came up with one of the lamest excuses ever for screwing around.
“There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt agout this country, that I worked far too hard and that things happened in my life that were not appropriate,” Gingrich toldCBS news (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CBS_News).
In other words, love of country led him to seek love from any woman who was willing.

that wasnt his exact quote and you know it...I looked it up...you paraphrased what he said and drew your own conclusion....it was common on a couple of different sites...but they all inserted what they thought he said or what they thought he meant, all of which were not the exact quote...just type it in Google news and see all the variations of his so called quote

This is some of what the left said about Bill
From http://clinton.procon.org/ "Was Bill Clinton a good president?"
Pro :Clinton's private marital issues were unrelated to his ability to govern the US.

http://repository.upenn.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1005&context=asc_papers
and with his alleged behavior having demonstrably had no effect on his ability to govern,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_of_Bill_Clinton
.. his ability to govern had not been impaired by the scandal

So which is it Roger? Is this a pertinent issue or not?

Let me all tell you a quick little story about Roger Perry and how he like most liberals cant admit in public that he is a liberal.

This past October at Jacksonville RC's fall trial I was judging the Derby and doing the equipment/marshal job for the Q.

Early in the trial I turned around and there he was .... Roger Perry, just standing there. So, being the nice that I am. I asked Roger " how is RTF's favorite liberal doing" ? Holy crap guys, Roger couldnt back peddle fast enough. I thought Keith Farmer was going to fall over laughing. But, the funniest part of the story was when I walk by the gallery some hours later .... Roger was still trying to explain to others around him that he wasnt a Lib and how he was in the middle of the road on politics.

Why cant most lefty's admit that they are Lib's in public OR maybe its to easy to hide behind behind a key board these days ..... Roger ????

If I voted a straight Republican ticket for 36 years then split my vote how does that make me a liberal??????????? I just did not like the lying Bush Administration and which direction the Republican Party is headed. If that is your cup of tea fine. I may be left of center but not as far left of center as most here are right of center.

Oh and by the way, I was not at the Q for hours just a few minutes to see what was being run as I did not have a dog entered in the Q.

While publicly chastising Clinton for dallying with an intern, Gingrich was bedding a House Committee staffer while still married to wife number two, who he started nailing while married to wife number one — the one he served with divorce papers while she lay dying of cancer in a hospital room.
So why does Gingrich want to be President?
Because, he says, “ourJudeo-Christian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judeo-Christian) civilization is under attack from secular, atheist elitism.”
So how is Newt the serial adulterer plan to do this. He says he wants to become a President that Americans can admire because he will “share their values.”
So far, I haven’t been able to find a single American man or woman who says they messed around because it was the patriotic thing to do.

All in the same article.:rolleyes:

PRO Bill Clinton a Good President
http://clinton.procon.org/
Character: Clinton was deeply religious from a young age and regularly attended a Baptist church as an adult. He once said, "Religious faith has permitted me to believe in the continuing possibility of becoming a better person every day, to believe in the search for complete integrity in life."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_of_Bill_Clinton
Months later, Clinton admitted that his relationship with Lewinsky was "wrong" and "not appropriate."

You've upheld Clinton in the past as an example of a good Presidency, despite the above.
But you want to hold this against Newt?
And state you're not a "liberal"?
Methinks you doth protest too much! :)

I called your hand on your statement that Gov. Walker was trying to ELIMINATE collective bargaining. That statement was totally false. As far as CLAIMING that Newt chastised Clinton for dallying with an intern, I believe this to be totally false also. How you miss state the facts is rediculous. I am sure he may have chastised him for lying under oath about the intern but NOT for his dalliance. So maybe you should check your facts before you speak. It would be nice.

Well.........show me a rich guy or a powerful one who has not had sex with a female outside of his marriage and I will show you a gay guy ! Let's face it they get offered sex by one too many women ( who for some reason see them as a prize ). One of those women will be irresistable to him. Maybe more than one will be.

I did not write the article but it was Gingrich that let the charge for Clinton's discression. The pot calling the kettle black -- Regards.http://www.capitolhillblue.com/node/39500



WASHINGTON – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was having an extramarital affair even as he led the charge against President Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair, he acknowledged in an interview with a conservative Christian group.
“The honest answer is yes,” Gingrich, a potential 2008 Republican presidential candidate, said in an interview with Focus on the Family founder James Dobson to be aired today, according to a transcript provided to the Associated Press. “There are times that I have fallen short of my own standards. There’s certainly times when I’ve fallen short of God’s standards.”
Gingrich argued in the interview, however, that he should not be viewed as a hypocrite for pursuing Clinton’s infidelity.

Do you even read the articles you refference??? jGo back and look at them. The first makes an allegation which you so proudly cite as fact. IT DOES NOT QUOTE HIM OR EVER REFERENCE WHEN HE SAID THE STATEMEN THE CLAIM HIM TO HAVE SAID.

Now read the second article. They quoted him as saying "The President of the US got in trouble for commiting a felony in front of a Federal Judge" the former Ga. Congressman said of Clinton't, 1998 House impeachment on PERJURY.

If you can't see the difference of what you claim and what the facts are, I can't help you.

Former Gingrich mistressAnne Manning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Manning_%28athlete%29) says Gingrich’s favorite sex act was oral, saying that was what the former Speaker wanted from her on their first time together in 1977.
“We had oral sex,” Manning toldVanity Fair (http://www.vanityfair.com/) in 1995. “He prefers that modus operandi gecause then he can say ‘I never slept with her.’”

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm wonder where we heard that before???????????

So it doesn't count if Republicans cheat on their wives as long as they are not denying it under oath. Got it.;-)

It bothers me that politicians are hypocrites. It bothers that politicians are anti gay only to find them playing footsie in an airport rest room or ragging on another politician about having an affair when they themselves are doing the very same thing. I would like to see politicians lead by example. I don't recall any of my family members getting a divorce and that includes Grandparents, parents, sister, aunts, uncles and cousins and there is not a one among them who is gay. Does that make you feel better?

I never said or implied that it didn't count if Republicans cheat on their wives as long as they are not denying it under oath. You posted that statement in response to the facts I stated. If anyone said that i said or implied such a thing then that is a case where I would call them a liar which I rarely do, because you NEVERRRRRRRRRRRR heard that from me.

I know my relatives. That is how I know. None are living with the same sex. I am proud to have each and everyone of them as a relative. My family takes their vows of matramony seriously. For better or for worse until death do us part. And they like me believe that marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Maybe you aren't used to having such a family.

By the way, none of them have ever been in prison either.

Not really sure what to make of your statement...on one side it is somewhat homophobic...and on another side it almost makes no sense,like who cares

I come from a family that has a couple of gay members, one nephew one niece...I dont stand in judgement of them,they are both good kids who chose an alternative lifestyle..I have family members who were monogamous and one or two that were not...who cares, not me...doesnt make my family better than yours, doesnt make my family worse, it just makes them my family...

Congrats to your family for being monogamous, hope they all live long healthy lives

Congrats to my family for being MY family, I love em

You can call yourself whatever you darn well please....but like the saying goes



if it quacks like a duck....;)


people like to call themselves independent, but IMHO they are band wagoners, they will never align themselves with the losing side, instead they will wait and see who the winning side is and align themselves...they are loyal to no one except themselves...I admit which side of the fence I reside,backed a couple of losing efforts,backed a couple of losers...but my fellow like minded people never have to wonder if I will change sides in the middle of a battle waiting to see which side will prevail and come out on top
