    Common criminals (much like I was) get second chances at redeeming themselves. Celebritys go through dozens of spouses and affairs yet the moment they speak ill of the GOP they are hoisted onto a pedestal. Clinton was forgiven before the truth was even known. Chances are many of you have had affairs or at the very least an ugly relationship that may have ended in divorce.

    Why is it all those people are quickly forgiven yet Newt is held back? Yes he went after Clinton for lying but that's the game you play when you lie to congress.

    I suspect there are only 2 real reasons and you won't admit either.

    1. A chance for payback because of number 2.
    2. He's a republican

    The only thing the left is consistent on is their lust for Marxist ideology.

    clinton may have been forgiven, but there was no way he would ever hold public office again......

    celbrities and private people are not held to the same standard as those in public office.......

    sure newt may be forgiven, but he will not hold public office again, ust like clinton and the celebrities......

    I believe in redemption and second chances. I'm living proof that many end with good results.

    The key is to admit your faults and try to move forward. Newt has done that and then some.

    If Clinton were able to run again I think he would receive a lot of support and be a formidable foe.

    there is a difference between being forgiven and regaining trust......

    if someone stole form me or a spouse cheated, i would probably forgive them, but would probably never trust them again......

    Although I tend to avoid sweeping generalizations directed toward the right and/or left, I will respond simply to share that as a leftist I am not concerned with Newt's marital indiscretions as they pertain to his public office. I do however recall his being reprimanded by the Ethics Committee as to inappropriate use of tax deducted funds in fund raising efforts.
