Gay half-sister of Republican Gingrich backs Obama
Reuters ^ | 12/08/2011 | Alexandra Alper

Posted on 12/08/2011 8:05:28 AM PST by Responsibility2nd

The gay half-sister of Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich slammed his position on gay rights on Wednesday and said she will support President Barack Obama, a Democrat, in the 2012 election.

Candace Gingrich-Jones, a gay rights activist, told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that she and her older half-brother, the former speaker of the House of Representatives, were "mutually respectful" but disagree on gay rights.

"He is definitely on the wrong side of history when it comes to those issues," Gingrich-Jones said.

Am I supposed to GAF what his lesbian sister, who is a long-time lib, supports? This isn’t news.

Next up, the half-witted duo of Gingrich’s half-sister and “Maverick” Ace McCain’s daughter on tour.

Okay?

His gay half sister? Really, MSNBC?

My half-uncle’s cousin’s former college roommate said he’s voting for Obama too!

LOL...were she a serious student of history and the decline of civilizations..she would grasp the blatant inaccuracy of that opine

in fact...it is she who is on the wrong side...this was almost irony but instead just simple ignorance bordering on delusion

Gee what is the long history of Gay Marriage? Seems I cannot find one!

That's the problem with Libs, they say something and everyone is required to accept it as fact.

And while you’re not GAF, Don’t GAF on who his 1st or 2nd wife supports. It’s probably safe to assume wifey # 3 is pro-Gringrich - but who knows?

I remember the MSM dragging this loser out in the 90's because she was a Leftist Clinton supporter. Who cares. This woman is irrelevant. Could someone explain to me why a Dyke has a hyphenated name?

Slow News day. Maddow had to go to her Lesbian Rolodex to get a guest. I’m just surprised that they trotted out Gingrich’s sister this early. It’s heartening to see the DNC run through all their ammo this early in the campaign.

From that picture, I can see why it is a “half sister”. Looks to me like the other “half” if it is brother.

Candice is female? I am shocked! Looks like a bloke to me.
No fan of Gingrich, but attacks from weird, far left wacko creatures like
“Candice” are only going to make Gingrich get even more support from conservatives.

in fact...it is she who is on the wrong side...

To "her", history begins and ends with whatever party has the position that best fits her agenda. She is apparently a single issue voter, and, she's only preferring Obama because, he's not advocating against gay rights or the gay agenda.

The democratic party supports the gay agenda because it represents a whole bunch of votes that they wouldn't otherwise get. The democrat voters are just a bunch of constituencies "tied" together by the desire of the democratic party to win elections by any means.

I was thinkin’ the same thing. Obama can have her. I hope they put her right out front, too. That will lock up the south for whoever the GOP nominee turns out to be.

I am really glad they pointed out that Gingrich is a Republican.

I wonder (if there is one) if they would refer to Barney Frank/Rock Hudson etc

“Straight half sister of Democrat Barney Frank...etc...”

Just kidding, WE know that never-hatchi boysan.

Ah, the happy day, August 2009 in Boston. Isn't that special... Are those flip-flops on the tall one? Newt didn't attend. It's another Chaz Bono, over weight and uuugly. It is obvious there are more mental or personality problems than just the gayness.

Or the Greeks or Romans.. They seemed to be on the ‘Right side of History’, but whatever happened to them. There has been thousdands of years of Human History and obviously they figured out that homosexuality wasn’t a really good idea for the endurance of their soceity or country so they made laws to try and discourage it.. We are very foolish!

Hi, RinR.

What is GAF?

It took me some time to find out what WAG meant, but help a hummingbird out. Thanks!

I'm sure when I find out, I'll be like Edith Bunker......”Oh”.......(ha!)

Would you be more concerned if she endorsed Newt?

My liberal siblings are pro-Obama too, and would be if I were running.

No one is typically his/her brother's/sister's keeper.

But, we've known about Newt's HALF-sister for years...it's just the MSM's attack-o-thon on whomever is the Republican front runner...at least the ones they know have a chance of getting the most votes.

Just like with McCain, the left knows the right will mostly reject Romney, thus is their best chance of getting the occupier-in-chief of being re-elected.
