Perry is an idiot bigot devil clown. Santorum is a frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter. Gingrich is an asshole. Romney is a douche. in my complex, sophisticated, nuanced analysis.

apparently what we're really going to learn from Gingrich Wife #2 is that Newt requested an open marriage so he could fuck Calista while still being married to said Wife #2.

which is all well and good. if you want an open marriage, go for it.

but let's just see how that one goes down with the base.

That's what's wrong with my party- the people who will take Newt's response of "I made a mistake. I've become a grandfather. I've found God. Ronald Reagan." as sufficient and all will be forgiven.

I cannot in good conscience ever vote for this guy to be president.

and i respect you for voting your values.

see, i personally have no problem with people who may mutually agree to an open relationship. i have minimal problem with people who have affairs or less than perfect marriages -- life is long, marriage is work, libidos must be controlled, and god knows we aren't perfect.

i'm much more bothered by him dumping his wives when they become sick (cancer, MS) than with wanting an open relationship. i also think that, yes, people make mistakes, they grow and mature, etc.

the problem is when you extend no such compassion to others, when you demonize others who live differently than you claim to, and when you actively live a life vastly different from the one you preach to others.

Quote:
[Ex-wife Marianne Gingrich] kind of guessed it, of course. Women usually do. But did she know the woman was in her apartment, eating off her plates, sleeping in her bed?

She called a minister they both trusted. He came over to the house the next day and worked with them the whole weekend, but Gingrich just kept saying she was a Jaguar and all he wanted was a Chevrolet. “‘I can’t handle a Jaguar right now.’ He said that many times. ‘All I want is a Chevrolet.’”

He asked her to just tolerate the affair, an offer she refused.

He’d just returned from Erie, Pennsylvania, where he’d given a speech full of high sentiments about compassion and family values.

The next night, they sat talking out on their back patio in Georgia. She said, “How do you give that speech and do what you’re doing?”

“It doesn’t matter what I do,” he answered. “People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”

Drudge: Gingrich’s ex-wife is ready to dish; Update: Excerpts to be released before debate; Update: Nothing new revealed in interview? Hot Air


and that, to me, is the beating, ugly, black heart of the social conservative movement. it is anathema to liberty and freedom to pretend that there is only one way to live and to punish people for being different while living apart from the rules you seek to impose on others.

There was an old Fed Ex commercial depicting an aging pool cleaner suddenly discovering a 20-year-old acceptance letter from Harvard he had never received, and imagining the life he could have had. That man is Santorum. He has to wonder if the Iowa vote counters were gay.
lol. But he wouldn't stand a chance in the South anyway.

Look at those supple, soft lips.

Maybe Rick's hardline anti-gay hate stems from a little high school locker room experimentation.

People are easily led - or easily bought. I fear Obama has effectively bought the election already by putting so many on welfare and not reducing the size of government. He's got the public sector and the welfare/'hood vote wrapped up. As for the business entrepreneurial sector, oh I forgot, there's none left.

So, as far as a I can tell so far, can summarise thus far: Romney only stands out because he's a cock in a field of arseholes?

good point.

other than being "not Obama," what do people feel are Romney's unique assets, qualifications, skills, and abilities that would make him a good president?

objective ones, too. not just in comparison to the other GOP candidates or Obama.
