Former Speaker Newt Gingrich acknowledged that he was having an extramarital affair even as he led the charge against President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky matter. Mr. Gingrich, a Georgian who is considered a potential Republican presidential candidate, admitted the affair in an interview with James Dobson, leader of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, according to a transcript provided to The Associated Press. ?There are times that I have fallen short of my own standards,? Mr. Gingrich said. ?There?s certainly times when I?ve fallen short of God?s standards.? The interview is to be broadcast today.
Whats up Irish… Newt has been this way for years! I saw this crap he was spewing yesterday on the news, and you will see all the right-wingers, christian type, family values supporters, defend this asshole the way they are Libby, Swaggart,and Limbaugh because they are all about “forgiveness”, as long the person is not a Clinton. Fuckers.
When did he lie under oath about it?
And by the way, he lied about a damn blowjob. Sorry, I just can’t care about that. They’re politicians. They lie. All the time.
If he’s lying about a blowjob, it doesn’t concern me anymore than your president’s lies have in the last eight years.
“Your” president’s lies? He’s your, mine, and every other American’s president. [/quote]
WRONG. He was 49% of the popular vote’s president. I will never, ever, claim a low-life lying troop killing asshole as my president. 80% of the American public are more intelligent than he, but somehow, almost 50% believe his bullshit.
Do not say he is my president, because he has killed my friends, fellow Marines, and lied to each and every one of us, and fools like you bindly follow his words. Join up in the Army, then he can be your Commander in Chief. Go to Iraq, die for him and Halliburton. Then claim him as yours.
Let’s get this all out in the open. Let’s have every one of our politicians that claim they are there to do the “people’s” works raise their right hand (heck, let them use a bible if they want) and swear before all their colleagues and the American public that they’ve never:
Then when we catch them in a lie (perjury) we can drag them out in public and humiliate them for their own good and our entertainment.
But he didn’t lie under oath about it.
oh come on! He was never given a fair chance to lie under oath about it.
What scares me is that you’re serious.
And you were never given a fair chance to beat an elderly woman and steal her pocketbook. Soooooooooo?
Actually every day I am given the chance to steal, cheat and or lie…but I don’t–when I can help it. My point was that he was never asked under oath so he never could have lied under oath. I was interpreting his sentence literally for arguments sake.
You seriously think Newt wouldn’t have perjured himself if given the chance? My cynicism may be over-riding my mental clarity here but my vote is on the negative.
