Newt Gingrich: "Presidential" in the Worst Sense of the Expression

Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

January 23, 2012

Bill Clinton cheated, stayed married, and wagged a finger at his critics as he was impeached. Newt Gingrich cheated, ruined two marriages, demanded an ?open marriage? from his second wife, waggled his jowls at CNN correspondent John King,  then went on to win a resounding victory in the South Carolina GOP presidential primary.

Gingrich, who was of draft age during the Vietnam War, married one of his high school teachers and claimed multiple draft deferments while conducting a series of extra-marital affairs. At one point he told an acquaintance that his first wife wasn?t pretty enough to be First Lady, so he arranged to divorce her while she was recovering from exploratory cancer surgery. He then married his then-current mistress, to whom he was married when he became House Speaker in 1994. Shortly after rising to that position he began an affair with the woman who would become his third wife, eventually divorcing his second wife after she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

On the eve of the South Carolina Primary, Fox News analyst Keith Ablow, a consulting psychiatrist, insisted that Gingrich?s sociopathic behavior displayed a set of traits best described as presidential. Given the depravity of the regime that rules us, Dr. Ablow might have a point.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
