wowser, a 2 hour interview with a bitter ex wife.

That may actually help Newt pickup some points among the divorcees who have been through the mill with a bunny boiler.

Just heard on FOX that one of the commentators said he heard she will claim wanted to be a swinger.

Well...my inclination is to not care. It might not be true, it was a long time ago, he said he asked God for forgiveness, I’m not voting for a husband...but for someone to turn this ship around.

What a bitter witch he was married to.

The utter depravity and blatant hypocrisy of the lamestream media exposed for all to see.

If this was a Democrat, this would never see the light of day. Larry Sinclair? Hello.

This will FAIL completely. Newt will respond forcefully and just move on. "End his career" hyperbole by a dnc sycophant media that hopes it would be so. America will completely reject it.

or would like to try at the very least. This will all be old news and it will be obvious to most voters that it is a character assassination attempt perpetrated by the leftists who have more reasons to hate Gingrich than his ex-wife.

What does Obama’s ex have to say? The press doesn’t want to know if he has an ex. If he does, the press is not interested in what she has to say... would probably bump her (or him) off with joy of heart to protect the One.

Isn’t the main objective of the MSM to end Gingrich’s career since they are so scared he will crush Obama and expose the liberal lies that they live off of? They want Romney because he’ll be easier on Obama and their agenda. But they have to get rid of Newt. The whole thing makes me sick, because too many people fall for it.

She could have “ended his career” multiple times over the past 20 years if she was soooooo concerned.

A couple of nothing attempts in the 90s?

Now she teams up with left-wing ABC to try to influence election results? LOL!

So what is worse for ABC? To air the thing or to have it and not air it?

It’s a win-win for ABC.

The threat could be worse than the actuality and probably is. If it would ruin Newt, they would certainly air it.

There area lot of FReepers stirred up with differing opinion of Newt, but not one of them can say he is not the brightest bulb on the tree when it come to politics, debates and knowledge of the way Government works.

Romney cannot beat Obama, even with the press laying off Romney, trying to set us up with a Romney run. They will kill Romney when the General election comes off while letting Obama skate.

If Newt can survive the Media war against him in the primary’s the media has shot their wad against Newt. He will be in a good position to beat Obama as the press will only have old news to spread.

On another subject entirely, could the sex between a 15 yer old and his schoolteacher have possibly had anything to do with Newts having adulterous affairs?

IMHO, this is old news. Everyone knows Newt has issues with fidelity. I wonder if the “reporter” asks his ex if she was the “other woman” to Newt’s first marriage? Can she really come out as the “cheated on wife” if she was the original mistress? I agree with the other freeper... I’m not electing a husband.

The existence of this interview in itself may explain the affair.

Let me know--so I can become alarmed--if there's sexual assault, rape, purjury, or intimidation of witnesses (crimes that Democrat politicians and their operatives consider no cause for concern).

Otherwise--yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwnnnnn....

That is what I heard too on Fox. But that guy Chris??? he is a real slimeball . . . use to be an aide for Smucky Shumer. nuf said.

It has already been said by ex-wife that he asked her to just look the other way concerning Callista and she said no so maybe that is what she thinks “swinging” is. Who knows.

I still support Newt. Go Newt.

Seems she has harbored a desire to destroy Newt for decades. In many failed marriages - when this type of vengeance is not resolved by therapy it often leads to violence or murder.

If this effort fails - one has to wonder what other type of destruction she is capable of.

"But, but, everybody said she died from cancer."

No, you're getting wifey number 1 mixed up with wifey number 2. Wifey number 1 was the one in the hospital getting cancer treatment at the time they discussed divorce. And you're correct, she's still living and was not on her deathbed. Actually, wifey number 1 IMO was a little creepy. I mean, he dates and marries his highschool teacher. This is kind of like Mary Kay Louterno type of creepy though she was only 7 or 8 years his senior and not 20 like Mary Kay was.

ExtremeUnction: “Gingrich is a serial adulterer.”

That is true. Many other people are, too. However, Gingrich has openly repented of his past mistakes and appears to be trying to avoid those same mistakes now. It would be great if he had never made those mistakes to start with, but the next best thing is to admit them and no longer do them. That is a far, far cry better than never admitting one’s sins, isn’t it?

At least he discussed it with his wife.

We have taken a film which contains compromising scenes and unpleasant details which could wreck a man's career. (gasp) But, the victim may 'phone me at any moment, and stop the film.

There's a word missing in the sentence.

Is it "he" or "she" that she claims wanted to be a "swinger"?

Wrong wife,that is wife No. 1 that Newt cheated on that had the cancer. This interview is with wife No. 2, whom he cheated on with Callista his current wife. Wife No. 2 was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) when Newt dumped her.

I don’t in any way, shape or form, endorse infidelity. Its one of my major beefs with Newt.

HOWEVER...if all this is true, there’s a teeny, tiny part of me that can’t blame him for dumping her if she acted this way during their marriage.

Just a teeny bit.

Well, if that’s true then Newt will definitely attract a whole bunch of liberal democratic voters in the general election, including Slick Willie!

Hey SRM, since you are all so fair and balanced, how about giving Larry Sinclair some air time on Niteline? You fing hypocritical phonies!!! At least Newt didn’t “cross the aisle” like the Lyin King did and probably still is!!

No tell all book?

Actually, his second wife (tonite’s interview on Nightline, ABC) has signed with a NY publishing company and is writing a book about her marriage to Newt. Expect it to come out the month before the Fall 2012 election, just in time to bring Newt down against Obama.

She said the exact same thing in a 1995 Esquire interview. It sounds like she is rehashing that interview, and ABC is more than willing to comply.

I guess we will find out, but if this was as horrific as Drudge is trying to make this out to be—by even using Marianne’s old threat—I would think ABC would be airing this during primetime, not on Nightline.

ABSOLUTELY! Who gives a fig about the rantings of an embittered ex wife? She should have gotten over this years ago. This act of ‘revenge’ reflects more on her than Newt. He is lucky he wised up and got rid of her.

My ex was a rounder and I was angry but you get over it. I can’t abide such vicious behavior from this woman. SHE is an a$$.
