C210N knows in a crisis, principles don't matter:
All things being equal, it should DEFINITELY matter!!I guess Clinton's tenure wasn't a crisis then.
That said, all things are NOT equal. The society and the republic are at stake.
dforest blames the media for forcing him to stop caring about marital fidelity:
Just mythoughts blames Clinton:
It should matter, but only if the same standard and scrutiny is applied by the media to both sides.
What the media does is cover and hide those things with Dem candidates, and make it a big deal in GOP candidates.
After the Clintons maintained their popularity at 66% in spite of lying, cheating, adultery, and only God knows what else I have been desensitized to how hypocrites calculate sin based upon who it is that sins.nicmarlo points out Obama is gay, and the Old Testament likes polygamy:
cuban leaf only cares that Newt is better than the other guys.
Obama has been married once. I’ve heard of rumors of his own homosexuality.
King David of the Jews committed adultery, murder, covetousness, and rape. He arranged to have the husband of the woman he desired killed. But, still, God called him the Apple of His eye. Why? David repented for his sins and, in his own so human and fallible heart, LOVED and wanted to please GOD.
We are not comparing Gingrich to Ronald Reagan. We’re comparing him to Mitt and Obama.Which basically means he doesn't care.
He still comes out on top, not least because there are multiple areas in which a man can fail in moral authority besides the bedroom.
elkfersupper relates to Newt:
Freeper head Jim Robinson weighs in:
Newt is a serial monogamist, as many of us are or were.
I finally figured out after 6 years of marriage to my first wife and 25.5 years to my second, that it is simply not worth it.
I have simple reasons for that; the simplest is that now when I put something someplace, it is where I put it when I go to retrieve it.No denigration meant for the lady FReepers, just sayin'.
Soooo....didn't mention fidelity at all in that rambling opus. I think I get the idea.
I’m going to try to make my reasoning clear here.
Sarah Palin was my first choice for president, but the left, the GOP-E and many right here on FR wouldn’t have it. They trashed her and her family relentlessly with some of the unholiest filth and lies imaginable. Even so, I did little about it. I felt it was best to let the debate run its course and the best hard ass conservative would rise to the top. Well, they drove her completely out and she didn’t run. Didn’t want to subject her family to such suffering.
Then one by one, they did the same thing to Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Cain and Santorum driving their support numbers down and Perry, Cain and Bachmann out of the race. As each one took their turns as our leading non-Romney conservative they were relentlessly attacked, trashed and driven out.
Looked like we were repeating 2008 and were going to be stuck with a loser RINO again. We’re running out of conservative candidates and I’ll be damned if I’m going to allow Free Republic to be used to drive out our last remaining best conservative shot of defeating both Romney and Obama!!
Then a funny thing happened. Newt Gingrich, whom they’d left for dead, arose from the grave and began smiting the heathen. He’s back as a hard as nails, no nonsense, bad ass, battle scarred, conservative veteran of two conservative revolutions, the Reagan Revolution of the 80s and then his own Republican Revolution of the 90s. And they were both hugely successful for us.
I’ve looked at Newt’s plan. It’s Reagan’s plan on steroids. Radically reduce government, regulations taxes and spending, restore constitutionally limited government, restore states rights, restore individual rights, restore economic freedom, restore American excellence, whack and dethrone the liberal activist judiciary and get the government the hell off our backs, out of our lives and out of our religion.
Securing the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity!!
Now what is there not to like?
We are rebels trying to take back our freedom or aren’t we?
Rebellion is ON!!
Join or die!!
Don’t tread on me!!
