Skip to comments.New Romney ad: Unlike some people, Iíve been happily married to the same woman for years

The unlike some people is merely implied, but this ones so heavy-handed that he might as well have tacked on a few shots of Newt with his ex-wives framed by a torn heart graphic.
Im tempted to say this will do Romney as much harm as good simply because it stinks of desperation driven by Gingrichs surge, but in truth it probably will help him a bit. For every Iowa political junkie who long ago priced Newts personal issues into his stock, there are probably two or three socially conservative caucusgoers who havent paid much attention yet and are just now taking a close look at Gingrich. And yes, character does matter:

this issue is worth comment by a man who wants to be the leader of the free world?
pitiful Mittens, just pathetic
Shouldn’t he be married to many wives?
This has to be the implication: “Unlike most mormons, I have been married to only one adult woman.”
Warren Jeffs is not a friend of mine.
Hey now! Mitt goes dirty first thing out of the gate. Newt will stick to his game plan of not insulting other GOP candidates. The voters eat that kind of stuff up.
Mr. “I can’t get over 25%” will now be lucky to get over 20%. Bye Mittens!
He misspelled “women”
Melanie Wilkes stayed married to Ashlee too.
I felt sorry for her, and I feel sorry for RINOmney’s wife also.
It must be h*ll being married to a weathervane.
And Mitt, unlike some people, you are a gun-grabbing, gay-loving, culture of death-facilitating, big-government-loving, liberty-crushing statist.
Piss on Romney
This will blow up in Mitt’s face.
Voters at large do not use this as a discriminator when deciding for Prez.
And to the extent that some do, they would rather not hear candidates use it as a campaign point.
It’s a cheap shot, better left to staff and supporters, but not the candidate himself.
Sounds like someone has their magic underwear in a knot.
Just one additional reason that every time I view Mitt, all I see is a sleazy politician that wants to be POTUS waaaaay too much.
Sorry for the public school spelling of names above - fat fingered excuse as usual.
Truth would have been him admitting he is working his way to Godhood as well.
Newt’s marriages are certainly a big thing to many here.
Nice try, Mitt. Anything else?
what a freaking JERK.
Seriously, I didn’t think I could dislike Romney anymore ... and this just managed to make me loath the man.
I’m with you.
This was very ill advised!
Way out of bounds!
In fact, that is why Mitt’s family moved to Mexico over a century ago so they could continue that old tradition.
Newts sins (and they are many) are well known. Thus he is somewhat inoculated against them in a general election. Mitt does not stir the hearts of conservatives. His campaign is now dead meat.
Newt will be a formidable debater in the Presidential race. Obama will not be good in debate unless it is a “setup” softball question.
On a personal basis I do not like Newt. However, he would make a good president. I will vote for him with no qualms or problem. I would not invite him over to my house to have a beer.
For a second there I thought the headline said; Newt Romney ad ...
I don't support the big-idea (translation: big government) man, Newt Gingrich but I positively reject RINO Romney. A phony who gives RINOs a bad name. The Iowa caucus vote should be interesting. I'm hoping an actual, honest-to-God conservative, Michelle Bachmann, surges there but realistically, I wouldn't put money on it happening. Too bad if our choices are Romney or Gingrich. The only consolation is that either man would be 1000 times better for America than the America-hating alien Marxist we have to endure, now.
Tell us how you really feel. LOL
ps I feel the same way. Every time I hear Mitt speak I see a used car salesman.
As an aside I must mention that the campaigns of all the candidates monitor this site and other sites. It is important for them. By doing this they know how the campaign message is being received in the conservative and liberal forums.
I do not think Mitts people will like what they read today.
Why are you dumping on Mittens? This is the first thing he’s said that he can’t change his opinion later - he really has been married to only one woman. /sar
The insiders promised him that he would be the nominee but the rank and file Republicans are telling him otherwise.
Nobody cares how many times a candidate has been married and divorced, this isn’t 1950...
Nothing smells so desperate as a self-righteous smuck.

"Former Gov. Mitt Romneys administration failed to act on disciplinary recommendations
that would have kept ex-con killer Daniel Tavares locked up another year -
and behind bars at the time he was accused of killing a newlywed couple in Washington state."
"Despite Tavares long history of violence, the Romney-led Department of Correction
took no action on recommendations that he be stripped of good time because
of assaults on prison guards in 2003 and 2005, said sources familiar with a state probe into the case."
That headline elicited an “oh, no” gasp. Is there anyone who doesn’t know that Romney is still married to his #1 and that Newt is on #3, having cheated his way there? I may not approve of that aspect of Newt’s past, but if the primary were tomorrow, I’d still vote for him. Let the Cardinals choose the Pope.
And Mitt, unlike some people, you are a gun-grabbing, gay-loving, culture of death-facilitating, big-government-loving, liberty-crushing statist. Piss on RomneyLOL!
Nathan is correct in a way. The LDS actually practiced polygamy secretly until the 1920’s (long after the first ‘manifesto’ and until the second one) and many did move to mexico, including Mitt’s family.
However, they still BELIEVE in polygamy, just only have one wife at a time. Mormon marriages are considered to be ‘for eternity’ so a man (not woman) can marry in the temple (for eternity), divorce, marry again in the temple (without first wife’s permission) for eternity and upon her death, marry again in the temple (for eternity) and have 3 wives in heaven.
Also, there is a belief that polygamy will be re-instituted in this life during the end times, which also has a Mormon POTUS, and is why some LDS I know support gay marriage because they see the next step is the legalization of polygamy.
Mitt doesn't smell so sweet when dripping with desperation. I hope his weave falls out.
I can see that. And I can see a mounted jackalope on his desk. And without fail he says to every single customer he brings into his office; "Isn't that neat? My nephew made that." As the customer sits there struggling to form a thought, any thought at all, Mitt says "OK, now let's talk about financing..."
I disagree with the tone of this article. I’m really getting tired of candidates who tout something GOOD about themselves getting slammed because some other candidate can’t say the same thing.
I remember when Barbara Bush said something nice about her husband at the 1996 RNC convention, and the media attacked her because it “contrasted” with Bill Clinton.
Romney HAS been married to the same woman all these years. He HAS kept his wedding vows. He shouldn’t be attacked for pointing it out in a field where it is not true of ALL the candidates. It was Gingrich’s CHOICE not to keep his vows.
We attacked Giuliani visciously in 2008 for his multiple marriages. Gingrich should expect no less.
Mr. Romney. Is it true that you lusted for the waitress to pinch your butt? And that you admitted being untruthful about it?
he he he
I don’t think you’re allowed to say anything even remotely nice about Romney here.
Now, tell me about the whole President thingy...
Take a breath friend, and relax .....
Take a breath friend, and relax .....
Romney’s campaign is a joke, just like last time around, when will this guy get it, FOLKS DON’T WANT YOU!!!
You tried to buy the nomination last time, and it failed, and you hoped you could just quielty be coronated this time and its failed.
This is a pathetic ad, if that’s truly what this ad is...
Romney, Newt ain’t exactly a favorite of the hard right either, but you know the one thing he’s been doing and doing consistently??? He’s framed nearly everything he’s done as not an attack on other R’s.. but by contrasting what he would do vs what Obama has done!
You can’t do that, why? You enacted RomneyCare, which was effectively ObamaCare at a state level, so you can’t seperate yourself from Obama on policy, since your policy record wasn’t one of major differences in many areas.
I’ll freely admit, I don’t like you Romney, never have. It’s got nothing to do with your religion, or your success or failure in business.. it has EVERYTHING to do with 2 things, 1) You signed into law legislation that effectively punished people for simply BREATHING!!! You either pay the state, buy insurance, or be punished JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE ALIVE.. that is fundamentally UNACCEPTABLE! 2) You attempted to portray yourself as Reaganesque last election cycle, and it was truly sad. I don’t like when any politician tries to paint themselves as another, period.
However, if you truly have launched an ad simply attacking a guy on the grounds he’s been divorced?? First of all attacking is silly, give voters a REASON you are a better choice, not attack another R.. second, you are tone deaf politically.. yes even in Iowa folks get divorced Romney, it stinks, don’t condone it, but if we are disqualify folks from jobs because they have been divorced, you are going to have an unemployment rate far higher than the real numbers of 17-20%.
Well at least he is consistent on 1 issue. Too bad for him it is the only consistency in his life.
What an arrogant, tacky man.
And we are allowed to mock you for saying it.
He’s getting attacked for it, because really that’s all you got?
Claiming you never divorced, is admirable.. however its not exactly a winning claim either. John Edwards could make that claim during all his electorial bids... how’d that end up? Bill Clinton’s never been divorced either, but he’s run around for decades.
I am personally glad that any couple can stay happily married for the long haul, but does that mean others whos marriages failed are somehow less capable to do a job? Somehow I doubt the logic of that claim.
“What an idiot. He just insulted every American with two marriages.”
I hadn’t thought about that. You’re right. Doesn’t one out of every two marriages end in divorce? There are also many reasons why divorce happens. I can see people saying, “Well, bloody good for you, Romney - I don’t need you in the White House to remind me of my divorce - good bye, Romeny.”
This is his shot at his biggest opponent? What’s he going to say about Obama? He’s too tall.
"Unlike some people, I don't have jug-ears and purple lips. And my wife's rear end isn't as wide as an Amana side-by-side refrigerator."
