    I think you are missing something here. Newt would bring the ever Lurking Calista with him and she was the cause of divorce # 2. He was rubbing it in everybody's face that an old coot like him could get somebody like her. No matter how God awful she looked. He was delusional to think he could get the evangelicals with that approach. Newt is the one that shot himself in the foot not Hume. Hume is just another excuse for Newt in a long line of excuse's. He was rubbing it in everybody's face that an old coot like...

    Politico ^ | January 25th | Dylan Byers
    After nearly a week on the defensive, CNN's John King reports tonight that Newt Gingrich's claim about offering witnesses to ABC News in his defense — to rebut the network's interview with his second wife, Marianne Gingrich — was not true. "Tonight, after persistent questioning by our staff, the Gingrich campaign concedes now Speaker Gingrich was wrong — both in his debate answer, and in our interview yesterday," King said on tonight's edition of John King USA. "Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond says the only people the Gingrich campaign offered to ABC were his two daughters from his first marriage." An...

    For some reason, ABC forgot to mention this during their interview with Marianne Gingrich. Marooned in Marin reported: A poster at FreeRepublic found this from a 1995 PBS show, “The Inner Quest of Newt Gingrich.” Very interesting comments from Marianne Gingrich, when they were married at the time. But his greatest presidential stumbling block may be right under his nose. At home, Newt’s second wife, Marianne Ginther Gingrich, tells me she doesn’t see herself in the First Lady’s job. “Watching Hillary has just been a horrible experience,” commiserates Marianne. “Hillary sticking her neck out is not working.” What happens if...

    Newt Gingrich's personal life has become an issue. What a surprise! I was waiting to see how long it would take. Personally, I would rather have the candidates and media focus on what is needed to make America great again, instead of this sideshow. Marianne Gingrich, the former Speaker's second wife, has made allegations in an ABC interview about her relationship with her former husband, which has turned into a "he said, she said." She has accused him of requesting an open marriage and asking for a divorce shortly after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. During the South Carolina...

    In what appears to be a last ditch attempt to halt Newt Gingrich's late momentum in South Carolina, a fake CNN Breaking News alert was emailed to state Republican activists early Thursday morning claiming that the former House Speaker pressured his ex-wife to have an abortion.-SNIP-.The email alert was sent from fake account made to look like a CNN breaking news email address: "" "A source close to Marianne Gingrich tells CNN that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich forced her to abort a pregnancy conceived during the affair that preceeded her marriage to Gingrich," the fake email reads.

    No man is a hero to his valet--or ex-wife. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. These two aphorisms explain why Noman won't be watching the Newt Gingrich hit piece video that ABC has taped with Marianne Gingrich, his former wife of 18 years, in anticipation of the all-important South Carolina primary. Since its inception in 1980, no Republican candidate has ever won the Party's presidential nomination without first winning the SC primary. Newt is in the running, and closing fast on front-runner Mitt Romney. Laughably, the headlines concern ABC's qualms about running the interview before the primary vote....

    Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin came to Newt Gingrich's defense Thursday night as allegations about his second marriage threatened his surge in South Carolina's primary. Hours before the airing of a controversial ABC News interview with Gingrich's ex-wife, Palin appeared on Thursday's radio edition of the "Sean Hannity Show." She noted that Marianne Gingrich's claim that Newt wanted an "open marriage" will do anything but damage his 2012 hopes.

    According to ABC, Marianne Gingrich became the subject of an FBI sting operation in Paris in the late 1990s, involving an arms dealer working undercover for the U.S. government. The network said the investigation was dropped but that the then-Mrs. Gingrich had claimed that she could “get things done” in Congress and had sought a $500,000 down payment as part of a $10 million bribe to influence her husband. Marianne Gingrich denied the accusation and blamed it on an unnamed convicted felon. “This is all made-up, fabricated hogwash,” said the former Mrs. Gingrich, laughing off the suggestion that she had...

    The Southern Republican Presidential Debate Recap: Thirty-six hours before polls open in South Carolina, the four remaining GOP candidates were fired up- starting with Newt Gingrich. Gingrich began the night slamming the network broadcasting the debate, saying CNN "should be ashamed" for asking him about his open marriage. He called the open marriage accusation by his ex-wife "despicable." His explosive response got him a standing ovation and CNN's recap said he could win South Carolina for his answer. To spark the tax-return issue, Gingrich had released his an hour before the debate. When the inevitable got tossed to Romney, he...

    Allies of embattled GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich are coming to his defense against his ex-wife's new and salacious charges, labeling Marianne as "unstable" and "unhinged." What's more is that they are slapping at ABC, which is set to run an interview Thursday with Marianne Gingrich in which she claims the former speaker wanted an open marriage so he could date his current wife, Callista. Gingrich's supporters claim the network is trying to get the Republican out of the race just as he's peaking in the polls. What was once a quiet campaign to distance Marianne from Gingrich has kicked...

    The year-and-a-half-old ABC “scoop”, in which Newt Gingrich’s ex boasts her one interview could end her one time hubby’s political career, is more about the contemporary media than it is about a presidential candidate. The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz said a mouthful when he posited that Marianne Gingrich does not say anything in the new interview that she hasn’t said in the past.The Esquire already ran with the same story in September 2010, if anyone cares. Notice how quickly the story of another election-year smear has morphed over to WHEN ABC will air it.

Well, follow me on this. Newt Gingrich, aside from the budget deal in '95 and being made to ride in the back of Air Force One, Newt got along with Clinton pretty well, if you recall, and Newt treated Hillary with respect, even sat on the couch with Nancy Pelosi.

    The Gingrich campaign launched a preemptive strike as news spread that ABC plans to broadcast a potentially damaging interview with Newt Gingrich’s second ex-wife on Thursday – just two days before Saturday’s crucial South Carolina primary. Gingrich’s daughters (from his first marriage) Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman came to their father’s defense in a letter released by his presidential campaign. “The failure of a marriage is a terrible and emotional experience for everyone involved. Anyone who has had that experience understands it is a personal tragedy filled with regrets, and sometimes differing memories of events,” the daughters said in the...

    EXCERPT Paraphrasing Marianne Gingrich’s account, Mr. Ross said, “He came to her and said I want to stay married to you and still have an affair with Callista.” Marianne said Mr. Gingrich asked her “share” him, Mr. Ross said. That was unacceptable to her and the marriage ended.
