Gingrich: ‘Serving America made me screw around’

By DOUG THOMPSON
March 10, 2011

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, married three times and a self-admitted adulterer, says he screwed around because of his passion for America.

“There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt agout this country, that I worked far too hard and that things happened in my life that were not appropriate,” Gingrich told CBS news.

In other words, serving his country made him horny.

While serving in Congress, Gingrich had a reputation for playing around. He admits to an affair with is third wife while he was still married to number two and he served divorce papers on wife number one while she was in the hospital undergoing treatment for cancer.  His second wife, Marianne, says Gingrich proposed to her while still married to number one.

Former Gingrich mistress Anne Manning says Gingrich’s favorite sex act was oral, saying that was what the former Speaker wanted from her on their first time together in 1977.

“We had oral sex,” Manning told Vanity Fair in 1995. “He prefers that modus operandi gecause then he can say ‘I never slept with her.'”

Now Gingrich wants to be President and says he knows what it takes to be a great President.

Says Newt the reformed philanderer: “You want to be able to look into them and understand, do they share my values?”

And he adds: “Our Judeo-Christian civilization is under attack from secular, atheist elitism.”

So that’s why he screwed around?

    All this confirms to me is that Gingrich is a loose cannon on deck and needs to disappear from public life…! : |

    Hilarious. The stuff of Saturday Night Live. It’s called the American Flag defense. Reality is more funny than fiction as proven once again by a GOP politician.

    Where are the jobs Mr. Boehner?

      Don’t you mean, Obama where are the jobs? You gave the Dems 4 years, Boehner has had a little over 2 months. Where was your comments towards Pelosi?

    If this man is ever elected President, then our country (or what’s left of it by then) will be the next in line to be “screwed”.

    If the religious right does put Speaker Gingrich in the White House, how long will it take them to figure out that the First Lady was part of that adultery. Some day Americans will realize that our government is serious stuff and the churches have no place in an institution run on laws.

    The GOP has become insane with power now that they are winning their own private God into the Constitution. I’m certain the French, Spanish and Italians regretted bringing in the Inquisitors to put so many in prison. Art, Music, Literature all suffered under the emotions of sacrificing to their God.

    There is only one way to restore law to the government and that is to Separate the Church out of the Government. How many damn years do I have to write this before somebody takes the baton?

    The Republicans leaders are lecherous, filthy minded, users and abusers of the very country they pray to. Of course when they are all raised as sinners they often feel they must break the ethics of people around them.

    If you have any children, cut through the crap of sinning and simply train your kids to choose right over wrong. The security of realizing the difference from early childhood leaves the rest of the child raising to the years of enjoyment.

    If restoring Judeo-Christian civilization is what one wants, stay the hell out of politics.

    Paraphrasing here, My love for America made me do it.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    How many brain dead will believe this whopper, this is better than Jimmy Swaggart’s “I have sinned…”

    Flip Wilson, would be ashamed that his comedic line “The Devil made me do it” has been taken to so low

    Interesting subject for Thursday morning. Alas, you men are fortunate that you can come up with the interesting reasons for falling into hell. Here’s a secret for you guys. Women simply explain to their men that the magic sex appeal oozing from the male entity is enough to drive us on our backs when the fancy takes us. We are not looking for an excuse for our actions and we often times would love a repeat lesson in hell going.

    I am waiting for the first woman to yell at the GOP that the devil got us pregnant. I’m too old to pull this off but it would be interesting to watch the faces of the religious right if we could do it. I have enough acting ability to try but my elongated breasts and floppy buns would not help me in the least. My exotic memories will have to fill in. Sadly I am not keen in remembering faces. If one has seen one Devil, one has seen them all.

    Gingrich as Prez….first he gets crewed and then we get screwed. This is as good as the Twinkie Defense. Why does he remind me so much of Maj. Frank Burns of the movie M.A.S.H.?

    Newt’s explanation is silly and unnecessary: It is simply the nature of some Republicans to take whatever they want, regardless of the consequences or harm to others. It isn’t even a case of screwing everybody else because they are Republicans. It is just a personality trait (sociopathy) that drives them to the Republican Party and Conservatism. Some of us learn to share around age six, others don’t ever learn that.

    Before I get a lot of angry replies, please note that I never claimed ALL Republicans and Conservatives are sociopaths. Far from it! But sociopaths do find a supportive atmosphere for their feelings in the GOP and Conservative groups. They also tend to be ruthless and agressive, so a lot of them reach positions of power over others. No surprise that many Republican politicians have these tendencies.

    Lots of people screw around. In my opinion, there’s nothing so terrible about screwing around. It’s when Newt postures as a defender of civilization, supporting our spiritual freedom, blah blah blah, that I get irritated. Gingrich was merciless in his criticism of Bill Clinton for screwing around with Monica Lewinsky.

    What’s worse? Lots of stuff: Waging a war of aggression, for example.
