More Honest Talk about Gingrich's Childhood
PolitiJim.com ^ | 4/17/2012 | PolitiJim (@politiJim)

Posted on 04/17/2012 3:34:28 PM PDT by rightjb

I am from Georgia. I've known Newt since we were 15 years old. We spent an evening together during Spring break at Panama City, FL - two nerds who wore glasses, sitting on the patio talking when the rest of my cheerleader friends were down at the Band shell dancing and flirting with the cool football players. He was fascinating, a talker, interested in history and government even then. He was also a kid in an identity crisis. He had just found out about his biological father and his birth name. He was trying out Leroy McPherson instead of Newt Gingrich to see how that fit. I never forgot that evening with Newt. We had a lot in common.

Divorced dysfunctional absent and abusive parents, difficulties with identity. Many with Newt's background become serial adulterers, alcoholics, drug, porn, sex and gambling addicts, or they turn 'gay' - all seeking the love and nurture and identity they did not get when they were younger. Newt's pain was evident that evening. The next year, he got involved with his favorite teacher, a woman seven years older and married her to get away from home to a sane and stable life. Newt was marrying a mother/parental surrogate. He was emotionally vulnerable and immature. She evidently had issues as well to seek the company of a student much younger than she.

Later, when his wife and family did not come to DC with him, Newt got involved with another strong woman figure, a political colleague, again for the wrong reasons. The affair with Callista began when the second wife had left and they were separated. Newt had affairs in between his marriages, seeking identity, seeking to fill the emptiness and numb his pain.

What seems to have caused you to excerpt your Wordpress blog?

We owe you hits for your words? Really?

Cheeze...give it a break. Some folks pimp their blogs...you pimp your obsession!

Back on point, I think Newt has a date with destiny. I think he believes it also.

Go Newt! Hang in there!

The one begats the other.

If folks wouldn't pimp their foul infected blogs, I'd never say a word about it.

But we don't have to go to their blogs. It's an invitation...not an order.

And it was posted in Blogs and Personal.

I know you mean well...but it really isn't necessary. We can think for ourselves.

How about all these esteemed bloggers just post their "stuff" right here?

Then they wouldn't be trying (OH SO HARD) to direct Free Republic's
traffic onto some lame-ass infected blog? How would that be?

I cannot disagree with your point.

But I think most folks are more interested in what you have to say about the article (even what little was posted).

As a long time lurker, I respect your opinion...I just wish I could read more of your opinion...and less of yur bitchin.;-)

When pimping is present I tend to ignore the purported issue.
You or I could write a blog about how candy-coated clowns ate Japan twice last week.

The fact is the pimps want hits and can write any damned thing they please to get them.

.I just wish I could read more of your opinion...and less of yur bitchin.;-)

Waste a pimp and I'll fill that void with opinion.

Deal?

Newt will hang in there...and Mitt will soil his magic underpanties.

As Mitt said "hey obama, better pack your bags" (followed by much insincere and nervous laughter...by Mitt).

He's a good guy...he just found his place in the world...his obsession.

There's nothing wrong with blogs (not that I have one). There's even a category for them. Some are good...some, not so much.

I think Humblegunner is wasting his time (and brain power)...but this is his thing.

As they say...follow your heart!

They are poorly written.

They are largely based upon fantasy.

There is no oversight.

No investment is required, and therefor no accountability.

Most are written by homeless perverts.

Shall I continue or will that suffice?

Look it dude. The guy is almost 70. My hubby had a crappy childhood too. He is 65. He did some naughty things in life and he was treated bad by his daddy. Every bone in his ear is busted because he climbed a freakin’ fence and ripped his coat and daddy was pissed.

What is the point? OMG. Newt was in pain and thats why he screwed around to kill the pain and suffering. Is this to buffer all us prunefaced dried up ole church ladies for a coming bimbo eruption? LOL

What a laugh.

Other than that, have a good evening. LOL

I am going to be really honest here. I am not a mormon. I pay very little attention to mormon stuff. I don’t visit religion threads because the hate gets to me.

I have no clue what you are talking about and how what I said relates to LDS anything.

Are you nuts?

Well, yes...we are all nuts now that the parallel dimension has been introduced.

But, that said, you are a Romney supporter, aren't you?

I lurk...I watch...I see and hear.

I haven’t been a Romney supporter. I am not a Newter either.

I am against Obama. *sigh*

I have been trying to get VDH to run, but he said no.

You have been here five minutes and are giving directions to a long time FReeper.

What an asshat. Do you have a clue as to how many more people would read what these pinheads write if they posted it all here instead of trying to pimp a MySpace page?

See if the local grocery store will let you set a table up in their store and sell your own stuff to THEIR customers without a prior agreement and paying them for the space.

As to not having to click the link that is true but I still wasted my time clicking on what might have been an interesting FR link just to be cheated again by a scummy blog pimp.

Oh...you want new Freepers to be the obsequious types of folks who kiss your @ss instead of tell the truth as they see it.

Sorry pal...that ain't me. In fact, that ain't anyone I even want to hang around.

I've been here five minutes and I donate $10 a month.

Why not give it a try.

Calling folks liars when they are not reflects badly on you.

That said, I owe you an apology. Sorry for thinking you were not a donor.

My mistake was made because your name is not on the roster on the donor page at https://secure.freerepublic.com/donate/donors (my name is on the 1st Q but not second...as you know, I sent Jim a Freepmail re: this matter).
