'I had an affair because I love America', claims presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich
UK Daily Mail ^ | 3/10/11 | Daily Mail Reporter

Call it patriotic adultery.

Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich has claimed that he had an affair with a colleague because his love of country made him work too hard. The twice-divorced Republican politician was married to his second wife Ginther when he embarked on an affair in the mid-90s with blonde Castilla Bisek, who is 23-years his junior.

(snip)

'There's 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 told The Christian Broadcasting Network.

If he was really working so damned hard, he would not have had TIME for an affair.

I’m sure the stress of his poor wife having cancer was to blame also.

Is this article satire? Must be sarcasm, right?

Newt is a nut. But even he wouldn’t say this, right?

Right?

What was the old phrase..."throw a flag over her and..."

Is that about it, Newt?

It’s not satire. It’s one of the most pitiful statement I’ve ever heard. Newt is done.

Newt,

Whyn’t you go find a nice loveseat to sit with Nancy Pelousy and promote Global Warming Taxes.

Oh, wait, you already did that.

Just go away, please.

Newt needs to go back to his day job. A man who can’t control his schlong has no business aspiring to control anything bigger . . . unless he’s a Democrat.

When it comes right down to it Newt is not a very good politician. He really doesn’t have the knack for it. I guess that’s what makes him so interesting.

Huh?

How can a thrice-divorced, thrice-married man take communion in a Catholic Church?

And his wife didn't accept such a patriotic explanation and forgive him rather than divorce him? What is she, some kind of America-hating commie?

Still, for the sake of his current marriage, maybe Newt shoud give up on running for the presidency. We wouldn't want him to work too hard.

Tony Blair, the Scotsman who sold England out to Islam, is another recent convert to Catholicism while his wife’s sister became a muslim.

There must be some financial gain of fear of burning in hell behind these phony ‘converseions.” Newt is a POS like Blair.

if he wants to be President he will have to come up with something better than that. He is a man of towering strengths and glaring faults. The latter is here on display.

Newt's done...

I like him, and he is one of the most innovative thinkers in politics in this generation. But this sort of statement is not helpful to him.

Newt is a mercurial personality-- we need an adult in charge after 2012. (Heck, we could use one now.)

Worst. Excuse. Ever. I guess old Samuel Johnson was right after all. If Newt wasn't a non-starter before, he's a non-starter now. I still look for at least a modicum of basic character in an executive.

She “ain’t” gonna age well and she is not that attractive plus high maint. Based on my love of country - I would not do that for the Red, White and Blue. Some of those horn dog women teachers - heck yeah.

I dumped Obama TV over a year ago but listen to the radio sometimes. Sean Hannity is a nice guy, a bit of a lightweight, but not an antibirther sell out like some faux conservatives.

Why Sean has this loser on his radio show is beyond me. Newt is a joke.

His ‘use by’ date is long expired. There is nothing left but a plastic container of rot, reek, and mildew now.
