ATLANTA (AP) Newt Gingrich says his passion for his country contributed to his marital infidelity. In an interview posted Wednesday by The Christian Broadcasting Network, Gingrich who recently converted to Catholicism said he had sought Gods forgiveness for mistakes in his past.
Theres no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate, Gingrich said.
What I can tell you is that when I did things that were wrong, I wasnt trapped in situation ethics, I was doing things that were wrong, and yet, I was doing them, he said. I found that I felt compelled to seek Gods forgiveness. Not Gods understanding, but Gods forgiveness.
Forgiveness is real and necessary.
But is this may be a LITTLE too much baggage to bring into a campaign.
What say y'all?
I would vote for ANY Republican over Obozo, however.
Do you ever get the impression that Newt really likes himself?
What did Newt do - put a flag over their face?
|Thoughts for the day
Republicans win in 2012. They are going to try very hard to force an insider candidate like Gingrich or Romney on us.
Conservatives are kept too busy. Downsize some, and give a day a week to joining/starting Tea Party action groups if you really want things to change.
Get rid of the TV. Even the most aware people are swallowing subtle propaganda through the TV.
Muslim atrocities in the USA are sure to punctuate the next few years. When they occur, try to open the public debate about muslim immigration. With each new muslim atrocity, the level of public discussion about the issue deserves to increase.
I say that this article deserves a “barf alert”. Who does he think he’s kidding?
Sorry Newt. You’re better than Obama, but your still not up to it.
Newtie is NUTS!
Just Newt doing what newts do. Gets his a$$ handed to him, he just grows another one.
That's what SHE said.....
Anyone who can actually rationalize their bad behavior into something positive is mentally ill.
Poof Newt be gone!
Is there no level these guys won’t stoop to...
You got that right. Newt is a genius who will better serve us by churning out ideas. I have not heard anything from him against the New World Order or economic globalization. I no longer believe in unfettered free trade; he does.
If this theory is true, Bill Clinton must have REALLY LOVED HIS COUNTRY!
NO, Newt. Didn’t buy it then, don’t buy it now, won’t buy it anytime in the future. The biggest betrayal of all was when you sat with Nanny Pelosi and shared your true feelings about global warming.....you sold yourself out....and you continue to on anything at any time. Character counts, and yours is forever compromised.
Your ego keeps growing.......sadly, it’s inflated with hot air and bound to implode soon.
Honest. She meant nothing to me.
I was just doing my patriotic duty.
He didn’t fight hard enough for Term Limits. Wonder why?
Bill Clinton loved America repeatedly.
I’ve met him and talked with him. He’s brilliant. But I still don’t think I’d vote for him.
GINGRICH: “Sweetheart, I banged this broad because dammit! I love America so much..greatest country in the world (sniff)”
