    A man, who will leave the mother of his children when she has a terminal illness forfeits the right to ever use the word despicable again.
    With his response to the moderator of the debate, and he using the word despicable to castigate the press, looses any ounce of creditablitly that he may have had prior.
    How utterly convenient for Newt to sit piously talking about his passion for his country that caused him to make some of the decisions in his life. And then try to push the blame of his demise and disgusting immoral life style on the "liberal" press.
    This man is without a doubt the pure definition of despicable!

    My understanding is that the agreement to separate was mutual. At least, according to the daughters. So using her illness as a weapon against him seems a tad.... despicable.

    Having said that, hell will freeze over before I vote for Gingrich.

    Newt divorced two wifes shortly after they were diagnosed with illnesses.

    Judgmental are you?

    The entire audience at the debate disagreed with you and gave Newt a standing ovation.

    He is despicable with his moral attitude and hiding behind the cloak of forgiveness in the Catholic church is despicable.
    He is a cheat and a liar.

    I imagine there are already plenty of threads about this topic, but I don't feel like reading through all of them...so I'll just post my thoughts here. The left, and other Gingrich haters, can attack either the man, or the right, from two angles. He/they are hypocrites for accepting a lifestyle that contradicts "family values". Now if conservatives don't look past it, then they can call the religious right hypocrites for not following the teaching of change and forgiveness. I would say that in another time and place, this strategy would be very successful for the dems. However, I think the majority of conservatives are at a place where they just can't afford to cut off their nose to spite their face. If Newt doesn't get the nomination, it's not going to be because of this issue. Politics is ugly though, so you can't blame the left for throwing as much shit as possible and seeing what will stick.
