Pretty much reiterating his campaign platform. Troops overseas, Federal Reserve, budget, spending, etc.

According to CNN, winning S. Carolina meant winning the nomination since 1980.

(My prediction is Obama will not be re-elected - another Democrat maybe).

And I don't want a president that call calls himself a Jesus candidate! Where does that leave me I am Jewish! Rick Santorum calls himself a Jesus candidate.

I think all religions and God should be left out of presidential elections. I don't care if a candidate go to church or temple. It is going to be pretty hard to find a candidate that has not made any mistakes.

looks like that tradition will soon be broken because we both know Gingrich's background won't hold well against intense scrutiny in the coming future.

It would be impossible to find anyone who hasn't made any mistakes. That is why Jesus forgives ... oops.

Sorry, do you forgive me?

j/k maybe a bad joke

You know ... people voted for Hitler because he didn't swear, smoke, drink or fornicate. He was squeaky clean .... just saying.

I'd rather vote for someone who admits they are not perfect.

I do not believe in Jesus and it really does not matter if he does forgive or does not as he it not going be to voting. It's the voters the candidates has to get to forgive them!

No kidding. What moronic behavior to be complaining that we are talking about Gingrich in a Gingrich thread.

Newt would absolutely destroy Obama in a debate. Obama knows it too. Watch the stories of his ex wife play a continuous loop in the days to come.

No - but I do understand that the movie "Titanic" isn't just about a boat - its about an "indestructible", "unsinkable", mammoth of a cruise ship that sunk like a rock on its maiden voyage.

Much like Obama's presidency has done.

Newt? He is gonna be that fateful iceberg.

I will keep the following questions about Newt, and about Newt Gingrich only (since this thread is supposedly only about Newt Gingrich):

Does Newt Gingrich have any relatives living in the United States that are here illegally?

Does Newt Gingrich have a dual citizenship passport?

Does Newt Gingrich have a Social Security card from a State he has never been in at the time?

Does Newt Gingrich have any college records that can be readily accessed? What about High School? Elementery School?

After tonight's results in South Carolina, I can only conclude that serial adultery and serious political corruption in a candidate doesn't matter to a sizable segment of Republican Party members. I say "Republican Party members", because membership can be had with a mailed-in fee, not with study and adherence to any sort of principle.

Part of it is because I surmise that times are changing. This is the year 2k, we're not in the eighties or nineties anymore.
Anecdotally, I figure that moral integrity is not as highly valued as it may have used to be. Look at the media we are exposed to these days, explicit material is easily obtainable privately in comparison to the nineties where your anonymity is dropped to shop in an adult store. Therefore, it feels presumable to hypothesize that individual's judge of characters (especially children of this era) have dramatically fallen from whatever standard it used to be at.

TL;dr : Long story short, it makes sense why people can be more tolerable of adultery/and or corruption - because it's everywhere with us today. That's just my explanation why things may have changed.
