Gingrich says voters should judge his ability to lead now

Washington (CNN) - Judge me by what I can do for America now, rather than only by my mistakes in the past, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Sunday.

The former House speaker, who announced his candidacy last week, told NBC's "Meet the Press" that he has made mistakes in life, including an adulterous affair that led to one of his two divorces.

    Am a republican but I would vote for Obama before I'd vote for 'The Newt'. He is totally without integrity.

    Newt is an obnoxious bully who has failing businesses that don't pay their taxes, and he wants to be President? If the republican party nominates him, I'm moving to Canada.

    If I judge him now without any regard for his past, he has zero qualifications to lead this country. Also, I don't know how you an pander to right wing conservatives after having an extra-marital affair. He clearly has a defect in his moral character and a lot of audacity thinking he could be the president of this country.
