    rep·ro·bate (r[​IMG]p[​IMG]r[​IMG]-b[​IMG]t[​IMG])n.1. A morally unprincipled person.

    With renewed attention on Newt's personal life, I'm only going to refer to his personal life in passing since Newt's personal life interests me far less than his character as it relates to the kind of public servant he was, the private citizen and public figure he was for years after resigning as Speaker of the House, the candidate he now is, and the president he hopes to become.

    Newt will say anything to further his own personal goals. I'm not talking about a political agenda here. I'm saying that Newt is the kind of man who can, and will, say anything, without believing what he is saying at the time. He has no shame. He has no moral center.

    Remember the short NATO war with Libya? Originally, Newt said that the president should do something. When the president got involved, Newt said Obama should have done it.

    How about his stance on the individual mandate? He supported it, wholeheartedly. Now he says it's unconstitutional?

    Global Warming? He made a video with Nancy Pelosi about it. Now he disavows it?

    The same thing is true about Newt's statements about Paul Ryan's plan.

    How does Newt explain his $1.6 million from Freddie Mac? He gave them historical advice, or something to that effect? Huh?

    Newt was fined $300,000 by the House before he left. Hell, he was basically kicked out by his own caucus. Who knew about his leadership strengths and weaknesses better than they did?

    There's a LOT more, but I'm pressed for time.

    What Newt did to both of his ex-wives are merely examples of the kind of amoral person Newt is. He'll say or do anything to further his interests or to help him get what he wants.

    I don't mean any offense to Newt's supporters, per se, but I've watched him for years, and it's been clear to me for a long, long time that Newt isn't the kind of person who people should place their trust in.

    Many people say that they don't know what Mitt Romney really believes. I contend that while Mitt may change his position on issues, Gingrich doesn't really have any views other than the furtherance of what Newt wants.

    If you conservatives are looking for the 'not Mitt' candidate, the last person you should ever want to nominate is Newt Gingrich because you just can't believe anything he says, ever!

    I'm currently quite comfortable with Romney, but thanks for caring.

    Is this supposed to somehow be news? His scandalous past is pretty much common knowledge for anyone who pays attention.

    I'm not talking about scandal.

    I'm talking about principles, which are supposed to be a big deal in conservative circles. I don't believe that Newt has ANY principles, whatsoever.

    His principles are more progressive than they are conservative. His rhetoric, however, is conservative. Problem is his past statements and actions demonstrate that he has no problem with large government.

    It's the year 2012 and if Newt wants to reprobate, that's his business

    You haven't been paying attention, have you? I said that I don't believe that Newt has ANY principles at all, period.
