    Clinton cheated while in the White House. A true sleazebag.

    As for Gingrich’s response, good on him. I was most impressed. I will probably vote for him if he is the candidate. He will fix the economy, which is currently in very poor shape. Obama has been a disaster on the economy and a liar on gay rights.

    Jason there are so many points i would like to raise about Gingrich’s hypocrisy but I want to start with asking you why you think any Republicans economic polices are going to help you ? Have you any idea what they intend to do ? Please tell us all why you think Gingrich is the man that can help reduce the deficit, adjust rising income inequality, stabilize the housing market, and get people back to work ?

    You will vote for a man who left one wife while she was battling cancer and a second wife after she said no to an open marriage? He is a Christian…and I thought a Christian marriage was an oath to God. If he cares so little about something which is supposed to be so sacred how can we then trust his judgement should he hold our country’s highest office?

    While seemingly good on paper, a flat tax is not fair and will only widen the gap from the have and have nots. But don’t take my word for it…read any number of articles on the subject penned by credible economists.

    In closing, President Obama has done more for gay rights than any president before him. You really think Newt would do anything for our community?

    Yeah, right, let’s go back to Republican strategies, after all they worked so well during the eight years the Repubs had control of the White House and Congress resulting in the biggest economic collapse since the Depression!

    And, if Repubs had had their way General Motors would now be history, along with the American car industry and millions of jobs. They sure had THAT right!

    When you make “family values” and “traditional marriage” your political platform, your personal life is fair game. Especially when it’s so easy to point out how blatantly hypocritical your position is. As usual, the GOP mantra of “blame everyone but yourself” is alive and well.

    If these types of questions are appropriate to ask of Herman Cain, then they are appropriate to ask of Newt Gingrich, and for Newt Gingrich to say that he is now above these questions shows a true sense of privilege that is undeserved, and if he expects the American people to just forget about it he’s in for a big surprise.

    I want to know if Newt Gingrich conducts himself like a modern day Caligula, because, frankly, Republicans have crazies like Anne Coulter saying it’d be crazy to be represented by Gingrich, who, among other things, has directly contributed to our current housing crisis.

    I don’t care what you say about me. I know within my own heart that what I’m saying is true. I do research before I open my trap.

    On the other hand, a lot of you are the useful idiots. You don’t care about gay rights in an overall sense. Rather, you simply care about going to clubs and bars.

    When it comes to thinking through issues, you’re lacking. You will devote yourselves to Obama – a proven liar – in the same way those people devoted themselves to David Koresh.

    So Newt’s ex-wife of claims he wanted an open relationship which makes his position on marriage completely hypocritical. Jason, do you know Newt personally or do you willfully chose to ignore this claim? Who’s the idiot?

  10. Chadd says

    Jason is a perfect example of what happens when you only watch Fox News. We should pity him (when we’re not clubbing and attending orgies).

    Newt is a hypocrite and a liar. He would be the worst president imaginable and would do what all republicans do: steal from the poor and give to the rich. That said, John F Kennedy would never have been president if he had to face modern scrutiny. Newt is a scumbag of the first degree, but I have to agree with him that the question was out of line FOR A PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE. The topic is fair game and fit for Entertainment shows, SuperPAC fodder and ambush interviews, but in a debate, all candidates should get the same questions so we can evaluate their different answers. A question about Newt’s ex wife really gives no insight into how he would govern the country. I am not defending Newt here. I am an Obama man all the way, I just hate these Entertainment shows masquerading as Debates.

    I have practically begged people here to stop responding to the troll JasonRick. He derails every thread on this site. Yet no one listens.

    At least have the common decency to mock him ruthlessly. Make me laugh.

    CNN really teed it up for Newton by asking that question FIRST. It’s debatable whether the question should have been there in the first place, but it certainly shouldn’t have been the lead question. John King looked sick after Newton’s screed, and I bet he wanted to crawl under the table.

    Newton is a dysfunctional mess, and we all know that already. He won’t be President of the US, so I don’t much care at this point.

  13. Davelandia says

    So the media is big and bad for asking a question that he doesn’t like because it questions his moral character – as if moral character shouldn’t be an issue for political candidates. Whatever dude!

  14. says

    The Republicans are so self-destructive it’s a joy to watch. This hypocritical egomaniac could actually win SC, while team Obama cheers from the sidelines. Go, Newt! (And, Jason’s endorsement must be a big-ass feather in his cap.)

  15. Michael says

    I don’t know what’s more chock full of irony. Mr “Family Values” f’n every women possible while being married or a whore who got him to leave his first wife surprised Newt wanted to f*ck around on her. You’ve gotta love Republicans though… As long as their politician hates gay people he can be as big of a hypocritical sleaze bag as he wants.

  16. woodroad34d says

    It’s a debate, doughboy. The subject was raised to speak about character–you and the audience answered that question brilliantly. Both of you don’t care one whit about character or morality. The hubris and hypocrisy of the Right is simply astounding. The Devil is certainly trying hard for his adherents to win.

  17. stevenelliot says

    Why go after newt specifically?? Why not ask the question of the entire candidate field….something like “Since this debate is sponsored by NOM, the first question of the evening will be about the candidates thoughts on the sanctity of marriage and how, as president, each of you would promote a national environment/debate that could help Americans undrestand the importance of stable families…..”. And then let the candidates tear into each other on which one is the most moral. The “press” wouldve stayed out of the fray and still newts past wouldve been brought up. Dumb move on the part of CNN

    Ohmigod, I hope the eventual GOP nominee is Newt. Talk about shooting fish in a barrel. Obama could go on a six month vacation and still win the election. Please, please, please, let Newt win the next primary!
