GOP's First Spouses Club (Newt's long history of infedelity)
NY Daily News ^ | 10/1/2011

Posted on 11/13/2011 7:06:30 PM PST by Ripliancum

Jackie Battley was Gingrich’s geometry teacher in high school. They secretly dated until they got married on June 19, 1962.

...In 1980, the couple separated after Gingrich began an affair with Marianne Ginther.

Ginther met Gingrich at a political fundraiser in 1981. Ginther is the daughter of a former Ohio mayor. They married six months after Gingrich divorced his first wife, Jackie Battley.

...Gingrich began an affair with House of Representatives staffer Callista Bisek in the mid-1990s.

...Newt began an affair with Callista while she worked as an aide for the House of Representatives. They continued their affair during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Newt headed the investigation into charges that President Bill Clinton committed perjury throughout the Lewinsky affair. Newt and Callista married in 2000.

Anyone interested in everything stupid or embarrassing Rick Santorum has done in his life?

Just arrange for him to move into the top two or three of the GOP presidential contenders, and we’ll be sure to find out.

Ditto Johnson, Huntsman, etc.

I support Cain, and Newt is pulling support from him.

That said, as a Mormon, I don’t hold Mitt’s faith against him like some do here, and I will be supporting whomever gets the nod, even it it’s Newt, or Mitt.

Nothing wrong with Romney if you can overlook a few to tens of thousands of innocent babies murdered in the womb on his liberal watch in Massachusetts. And still being murdered today, but now the tax payers are footing the bill thanks to liberal/socialist/fascist RomneyCare. Then there’s gay marriage helped along by Romney when he ran and governed to the left of Ted Kennedy. And gun control. And big government mandates. And liberal/progressive judges and appointees. And support for unconstitutional TARP, bailouts, stimulus, etc. If you like this kind of liberal/socialist/Marxist/statist progressive crap, you’ll love Romney.

Reagan-Bush?! I was an independent during Reagan-Bush! I’m not going back to Reagan-Bush! (Spit, sputter!) —Mitt Romney

Newt is now a 68 year old grandfather who has admitted he has made mistakes in the past. And here you are digging up old black and white photos that are supposed to be incriminating for some reason, all the while pretending that the abortionist Romney is as pure as the winter snow.

I said nothing about Mitt, nor did I dig up photos. This is a article on all the spouses of the contenders. I like Newt’s politics a great deal, but if one can’t be faithful to the oath made to a spouse, time and time again, I worry how can one be faithful to the oath of office.

The baggage worries me.

I’m confused. You say he began an affair with Ginther in 1980 but then say he met her in 1981.

I know his track record isn’t the greatest but look at it this way: in today’s world, he would be considered a victim - teacher taking advantage of him while he was her student. So, a good analyst might say his problems stem back to that.

That’s what I was thinking, they are looking better all the time.

If Being a bad husband has anythng to do with being a bad President, then we have had some that make Newt look like an Angel.

Newt makes the others runners look like idiots.

They can’t hold the light for Newt to run by in debates.

I want a man who can rip Obama to pieces and doesn’t mind doing it, The rest of them seem to be mute on Obama.

Newt is a womanizer. Apparently so is Cain. Romney is a liberal. Perry is an incoherent idiot. Bachmann is a religious nut...

And on it goes. Is there any other Republican we can tear down? Here’s a novel idea: lets tear down Barry Hussein Obama, the Muslim Marxist. He is the enemy. Not my fellow Republicans. No Republican candidate is going to be perfect, but any one of the ten is 1000 times better than the golfer-in-chief who is destroying this country.

Cain has been married and faithful to the same woman even longer than Mitt. I swear, some of you people think that anything said about another candidate has to be a pro piece for Mitt. Take a deep breath and step away from the keyboard. Newt is pulling support from Cain right now. Mitt remains stagnant.

Look on the bright side. I doubt he will cheat on Callista. That girl’s got some very expensive taste (i.e. $500,000 LOC at Tiffany’s, vactations to the Greek Isles). I don’t think Newt could afford it. She’d take him to cleaners and never look back.

"But Jim, you just don't like Mormons."

Well, in your opinion, is Mitt Romney representative of the good Mormon? Do Mormons tolerate the immoral, godless liberal/socialist/progressive policies foisted on the good people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and our nation by Governor Romney? Or are he and his ideological twin Harry Reid just rare examples of the evil side of Mormonism?

And no, I'm not a Gingrich supporter. He's smart and good at debating, but he's a RINO and I wouldn't trust him for dog catcher much less the presidency. He's down near the bottom of my list of eligible *cough* Republicans just before Ron Paul. Romney at the very bottom, of course, tied with Giuliani for when hell freezes over.
