    The media and his political enemies should absolutely call him out for being a hypocrite on this.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Likely...Obama will not sink to such tactics (unless he gets really pissed off...and I hope he does)

    He has? Perhaps you could show ad's ran by him or transcripts from debates where he was very vocal about this throughout his campaign? Frankly I've heard him comment relatively sparsely unless directly questioned about it on the subject.

    "A few years ago" wasn't during the campaign. You said "throughout his campaign"

    And thanks for the link that further reenforced what I stated....that he's not been "very vocal" about it throughout his campaign but rather has talked about it when it has been asked of him or its been brought up to him. In the case of your link, it was a response to a group in Iowa attempting to get him to sign a marriage pledge.

    Talking about something and "being very vocal in his campaign" is two different thing entirely. The notion of it being [u]very[/b] vocal is suggesting he's significantly talking about the issue during his campaign, in a way beyond what would be just normally vocal. Santorum would be someone very vocal about this kind of thing...he brings it up even when not asked about it, goes out of his way to tie it ot things, goes out of the way to make it a central issue for him. Newt is as vocal as any other general Republican candidate...when asked about it, he'll respond. To me that's not making it a "very vocal" part of his campaign anymore than Obama was making it "very vocal" that he was against gay marriage. He answered if it was asked of him, but he didn't make it a "very vocal" part of his campaign...frankly it doens't seem Newt is either.

My questions to you is should someone that is on his 3rd marriage and has committed adultery be allowed to lecture the general public on how marriage is a " Sacred tradition" and prevent other Americans from being married. When it comes to this paticular issue is the man being very hypocritical and should maybe keep his mouth shut and stop judging people on their life choices? ( we all know how he hates the media judging his) or is he right to still defend marriage from the gay community and keep it "sacred"
    Yeah...I think it's clear that he doesn't have the moral authority to speak on marriage at all.

That sure would make Jesus proud, particularly since the very verse they use to argue that Jesus defined marriage as an institution only for men and women was Jesus condemning divorce. And now apparently he sought an "open marriage" at some point. Good grief. They idiocy and hypocrisy is revolting.
    It would be just as hypocritical for him to support gays marrying, given the presumption of monogamy. He's supposed to tell you to be monogamous while he clearly was not? He needs to just stfu and go away.
