***Excuse Me! If Adultery mattered Newt would be in the same position as Cain***.
Perception is everything.
Many of us perceived that Herman was a long-term, faithful husband with no extra-marital skeletons. We still don’t have all the facts - but it has upset our perceptions.
All of us have been swamped with Newt’s transgressions - personal and public for decades. He has apologized, sought redemption and married his extra-marital lovers; establishing that they were not ‘sexual flings’ but ‘true love come lately’.
As many FReepers have asked: how many of us have strayed, been unfaithful, divorced, been cuckolded, forgiven and been forgiven or are still pure as the driven snow?
Life is untidy - we, our family members and friends mess up. Politicians are people too.
With all do respect. What are we fighting? Communism via stuff like EPA AGW, etc,, redistributing wealth? Crony capitalism, globalist movement, gun grabbers, etc. Now go back to the big picture. Where do does the media proclaimed front runners record stand on such major issues? Where does allegations of adultery fit in to those problems? Yes, adultery it is of some concern if it happened but is of little concern compared to the larger issues we are fighting.
Bottom line: If Cain stays in hes gets the votes of the conservatives who are not fair weather lemmings of the media.If he drops out because of family problems then it’s moving on to the next “conservative” on the list; which obviously do not include the fake poll’s claimed current leaders (sic).
I don’t condone adultery. However way too much is at stake that is of more importance.
Many of us perceived that Herman was a long-term, faithful husband with no extra-marital skeletons. We still dont have all the facts - but it has upset our perceptions.
Actually, Cain promoted that mis-conception.
