Maybe Newt can get together with Boehnor on a golf course somewhere and have a real sobfest.

There’s no damned crying allowed on the campaign trail. Bachmann’s a woman and even she’s not crying. For God’s sake’s, Gingrich, man up. LOL!

Hinckley buzzard, I have to say ditto to what you said, because if I respond with what is on my mind, I would definitely be booted from FR.

I'm something of a square and an admitted old fogey. Since I don't cuss (well, not very much), you precisely phrased what I was thinking but would probably not say or write. :-)

In any event, it was very well stated and I absolutely share your intent. Newt Gingrich's emotions were genuine today and he'll be a genuinely superb Commander in Chief.

I agree. Any person without being able to show emotion on something such as this is the epitome of rotten garbage.

There's not a sincere bone in this man's body. Just like a cue on stage, the tears flow.

“I really love a weeping, weak politicians.”

There’s a little difference between Boner’s waterworks over his inability to be competent and a guy talking unexpectedly about his dead mother in a room full of women, don’t you think? Not saying he should do it all the time...but he doesn’t. I watched the whole meeting, and it was not only NOT showboating, it was pretty touching. And it wasn’t the pussified breakdown all you he-men are making it out to be, it was just a guy talking about his mother.

“The tears flowed as the former speaker was responding to questions about his mother from a pollster and longtime political ally.”

I wonder if the pollster and longtime ally had some polling data on how tears affect women voters. Right on cue.

Damn straight he did. Everyone knows that emotion plays into the decision making of women. And it's true for more than a majority of women. There are exceptions, but to cry on cue at that time with women present? We're not embiciles, even though some on this thread think we are.

Is it manly to pretend you have no attachment to your mother? What do you define as manly? Should your husband slap you around when you’re out of line? Should he drive around his pickup with his Rottweiler hanging out the window?

I’ve got news for you. People concerned about perceived manliness are either insecure men or insecure women.

Paul gave no ground. "I really can't conceive" of intervening militarily to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, he said, unequivocally restating his position on an issue on which he differs with Romney and his other rivals.

Good luck in trying to reason with these lowlife POS.

There isn’t a real man among them. A justified insult is one thing, but this trash is beyond reason.

Maybe you can tell us all about the robot you endorse. The inability to cry usually has some ties to serious psychological issues; perhaps you should get yourself evaluated before you become a public menace.

My very manly "Marlboro Man" of a husband (minus the smokes, of course), still - at 69 - tears up over memories of his mother, who passed away in 1995. He can also get chocked up and tear up "out of the blue" while teaching a Sunday school class with men and women present.

As for Newt choking/tearing up, I didn't actually see the clip, so I'll have to withhold judgment as to whether it seemed genuine or contrived.

I'm so sick of this trend for the past 20 years of male politicians believing fake crying is the way to show their sensitive side to women voters.
