    The Little-Known, Inside Story About How Newt Became the Man He Is | News & Politics | AlterNet
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This is the story of a man whose lust for sex, money, and power truly knows no bounds.

    No Catholic should be deluded into thinking he is changed because his most recent mistress-turned-wife required him to convert; he is not a man who should be put up on a pedestal as President of the United States, a disgraceful example for people to model themselves after.

    And what about calling a woman names or *purposely* dabbling in gossip and rash judgement?

    Thos is a thread about Mr Gingrich's repeated affairs and other moral flaws which demonstrate him to be of poor judgement and moral fibre, and thus unfit for any position of power. Have you anything to add?

    I'd pay money to see him mop the floor with the ne'er-do-well and telepromter addicted, Obama.

    Interesting. I prefer to vote for pro-life candidates.

    Actually, He, Santoram, Perry, Bachmann, Cain have *all* signed the Susan B. Anthony pro-life pledge.

    Newt Gingrich is not pro-life, nor is he a morally upright individual.

    oh, not the, we have to go along with him anyway because he's pro life, card... yeah right... pro life is not really what these jokers are.

    If the Republicans wanted to end RvW, it would have been ended long ago.

    Wake up and see when your being played.

    So he's a liar. Great.

    "What about the abortion issue?" asked Gloria Borger, then of U.S. News and World Report. "There are people in your Republican conference and Republican presidential candidates who believe that there should be no federal funding at all, even in the cases of rape or incest. Do you agree with that?"

    "No," Gingrich responded. "First of all, I think you should have funding in the case of rape or incest or life of the mother, which is the first step."

    Gingrich was taking the position of many moderates, who believe abortion should be allowed only when a woman is raped or impregnated through incest, or if carrying the pregnancy to term threatens her life. He went a step further in saying federal money, such as through Medicaid, should be allowed to pay for such abortions.

    I like Ron Paul too. I don't like his stance on abortion any more than Newt's, but I like that he isn't a weasel and doesn't have the support of the status quo good ol' boys on either side of the aisle.

    everybody is waking up which is why he's actually a contender this time.

    so what if he said to the crazies he'll hand over the UFO records to them if elected... so what if he wants to legalize dope... he wants to rid us of the federal reserve and that's whats important.

    Exactly. He aims to close the book on stupid conspiracy theories, destroy drug cartels and overhaul or destroy the fed - he's imperfect but I can't say I disagree with any of that.
