    A colorful past is how you describe it. I'd call it an ADULTERIST past. Not the role model I will like my kids looking up to.

    Gingerich loves to bloviate about the sanctity of marriage and how gays should not be allowed to marry, but apparently the sanctity of marriage doesn’t apply to his life – he’s on his third marriage! Gingrinch and Hyde were both cheating on their respective wives while persecuting Clinton for his indiscretions – and Clinton is still married to the same one and only wife. Gingrinch is a fraud. Worse than that he’s an arrogant selfish prick.

    according to your own clip, Newt in the ninties attacks Clinton for lies and cover ups, and not for having s.., so why in hell does it matter if Newt too had an affair?

    Here we go again with hypocrisy, he's no different than President Clinton, President JFK, Senator Ted Kennedy, do we need to make a list and bring out every politician's dirty laundry to even out the playing field? Seriously, how dumb does the media, politicians think we the citizens are to think that Democrats are exempt from a colorful past?

    So how will Gingrich manage his campaign if he won't talk to any reporter who doesn't work for Fox or a Christian network? Never mind the adultery; I want to know why he quit the first time he had an electoral setback? As speaker, why did he have to grab all the power in the House for himself? Plus there are the assorted ethics violations. Oh yes, Newt, run if you dare.

    Hate to break it to you ConservaFascists/F.U.B.A.R but if your kids happen to be looking up to President Clinton, President JFK, Senator Kennedy as role models, they were not role models either when it came to adultery, you can read on their lives, their wives and what they went through. It's just that Democrats have become accustomed to being hypocrites.

    When do you remember any of those men you cited preaching and crowing so loudly about "family values" and how important they are??? The answer is NEVER. Bloated Newt was the biggest 2 face coward out there. He and the rest of the Faux news crew constantly whine and tell everybody how to live their lives when they dont even live like that themselves. CNN/MSNBC/etc are left leaning...well golly gee Gomer I didn't know that! But they don't advertise themselves as anything other than a network. Faux News and their "Fair and balanced" lie is a right leaning network and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to have their head examined as they are either too stupid or too blind to admit it

    if our country is in such bad shape that we need a Newt Gingrich as POTUS then we have reached the abyss indeed with little hope of return. I love how the same right wingers that blasted Clinton and Edwards ( and they BOTH were as wrong as two left shoes) come out and try to defend this guy. All of a sudden they are so forgiving and half of them blast President Obama claiming he's not a Christian but willing to back Newt that broke every marriage law in the Bible. No way should this man even get NEAR the White House IMO.

    I'm an Independent and really have No bad political feelings toward newt but, these two posters pretty much hit the nail on the head. As an independent, I would seriously consider voting for Honsi Mubarak before Newt. From the way the republicans thought that the current administration should have sided with Mubarak over the egyptian people, I wouldn't be suprised if he is their nominee with Newt getting the V.P nod
