    Are you saying Newt did not cheat on his wives, hasn't been married three times? Or are you saying the truth is a smear?

    Though I realized my post came off as plural when my mind was thinking primarily the 2nd wife.
    the second wife started seeing gingrich when he was going through divorce proceedings, at least that's what i've heard.

    in a nutshell, newt is a scumbag who was forced out of congress, BY HOS COLLEAGUES, for ethics violations. the fact the republicans are even considering him shows me that they only pay lip service to their so called values.

    there is no denying what the man is. a scumbag.

    No, not at all. In fact Newt himself isn't denying that in his earlier lifetime he did things he isn't proud of...(Much like Barry's cocaine use, and possible gay sex) But, that he has done the things to ask forgiveness, and seek redemption. Who are you, or other libs to deny that?

    Also, that the dishonest tactic now of dredging up past events in false light, that doesn't tell the entire truth about the circumstances in full, are lies by omission.

    You know how that works right?

    Easy to mock values, and exploit opponents said values as false when libs have none to exclaim on their own. The true measure of scum-baggery if you ask me.

    It wasn't that early in his life J. He wasn't 19, or even 30. This has been a part of his life, his core value. And it wouldn't be an issue for me at all, if he hadn't stood up and repeatedly decried family values, nenouncing so many, while living a life largely devoid of those values. You do understand that all he has done has allowed the faithful to ignore his hypocracy and have the media, the mean old media, take the heat that should be his.

    But then again, when has the buck ever stopped at a republican doorstep for the faithful?

    i find your defense of newt hilarious, because it's strictly partisan, because there IS no defense. the same man who initiated the massive ads about clinton and his scandal is now crying "no fair!" when the media, or anyone else, mentions his lapses. well, i call bull****. in fact, newt is WORSE than clinton. he left, not one, but TWO wives when they were ill. no CHARACTER there. all he ever wanted was to be president, and now he's getting his chance. he's a liar, a cheater and an egomaniac, and if by some chance he's elected, i will happy that i will spending my time in the islands and not the states.

    Our current social programs, and those proposed in the future, are defended as some how being Christian charity to those in need. That we are a wealthy nation and it is our duty to give out of our largess to those "less fortunate". When a conservative Christian says no, he/she is accused of being "un-Christian" and lacking in charity. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you adhere to a having a religious or social duty to give to others in need, go for it. It is an INDIVIDUAL duty and you don't have the right to impose it on others. Not religiously, and not secularly. A Christian who gives to charity in this world, stores up treasure in the next. That is a stated Biblical principal. But having it taken from you, against your will, is not a voluntary giving and it isn't charity. No heavenly points. This is the crucial difference between conservative and liberal charity. Conservatives give their own away, and quite generously too according to the statistics. Liberals TAKE from others and give it away. Also quite generously, even though their OWN giving has been documented to be very small.
    That is quite accurate. In fact, many Christians (and I should note so do many non-Christians) not only give large sums to charity and the needy, but also a lot of time. So do a lot of churches.

    Your analysis is correct. The government taking money via taxes and doing whatever they do with it, including social programs, is NOT seen as charity. It is seen for what it is, taxes. The view of many is the government takes SO MUCH that it then just spends on itself they see the government as the antithesis of charity.

    Somewhat relevant, is most Christian churches set the standard at 10% of income, much less than the government particularly when ALL forms of taxes and fees are counted, no just federal income tax. Some any see government is preventing charity rather than distributing charity.

    People need to be careful not to allow the media to define religions particularly when mixing it with partisan politics.

    In 2008, the MOST valid criticism of the Obamas in my opinion was that despite being in the top 1%, they give essentially nothing themselves to the poor and needy or any other charitable contributions. Yet no one cared about that. I think that showed where the Obamas' focus is. Singularly on themselves.

    What is hilarious is the overwhelming hypocrisy of your post !!!!!! No grasp of the actual events, while also turning a blind eye to Clinton's long-term, and continuing infidelity, and HIS lying about it still !!

    Libs are too much ...... need my hip waders here .....

    Yes...Newt having consensual affairs with women is WORSE than Clinton groping a woman on the day of her husbands funeral, raping a woman, jerking off in front of a campaign staffer and asking her to kiss little Willie, and poking a cigar into a 22 year old interns vag in the Oral office. **** me...talk about selective outrage and definitions...
