Thought of the Week: Voters are fickle. Gingrich is the man who led the crusade against Clinton for his sexual activities in the White House. Gingrich is the man who spoke out for the sanctity of marriage, family values, and the need for morals in society. Gingrich is the man who divorced his cancered wife, then divorced his MS wife after she would not go for an open marriage. Gingrich is the man who slams the media for intruding on his privacy, while his supporters say that his private life is irrelevant and has nothing to do with what he stands for politically. ( page/2012/01/newt_gingrichs_hypocrisy ) Really? It doesn’t matter what a presidential candidate’s morals are as long as he/she says what voters want to hear? Well, excuuuuuuse me for not going along with that bunch of bull!
