Newt promises he won’t cheat on Callista as president

posted at 4:25 pm on December 12, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Earlier this summer, Newt Gingrich passed on the opportunity to sign The Family Leader Marriage Vow, which asks political candidates to commit to take specific actions to support traditional marriage upon election. Gingrich didn’t object to the pledge so fiercely as Mitt Romney, whose campaign staffers called parts of the pledge “undignified and inappropriate,” but the former House Speaker did suggest he thought the pledge could use some tweaking. At the time, at least one pundit jokingly speculated that Gingrich didn’t like the inclusion of the phrase “personal fidelity to my spouse.”

Turns out, he’s on board with that. The GOP frontrunner finally officially responded to The Family Leader executive board’s long-ago invitation to him to sign the pledge. He didn’t actually sign it, but, in a letter, he says that, as president, he would (a) support a federal marriage amendment, (b) ensure no taxpayer dollars go to fund abortions either at home or abroad and (c) fight for conscience protections for healthcare providers … among other things.

But the most interesting sentence of Gingrich’s letter comes at the end of the second paragraph.

“I also pledge to uphold the institution of marriage through personal fidelity to my spouse and respect for the marital bonds of others,” Gingrich writes.

Call me crazy, but I thought marriage vows were supposed to be all the pledge a person needed to make to reassure a potential partner — and any interested onlookers — of fidelity. (That was actually the valid objection Romney made to the pledge in the first place.) Then again, in light of recent increased scrutiny of Gingrich’s past affairs (and, most notably, attacks from the long-married Mitt), perhaps this explicit expression of faithfulness is savvy.

Let me type slower for you. I wasn’t talking about Newt at all. I’m talking about the average good person with brains who does not consider running for office, any office, because of nitwits like you and the media dragging their lives through a mix master. Is that clear enough for you?

katy the mean old lady on December 12, 2011 at 6:51 PM

It seems you are the one with reading comprehension problems. People like me drag the lives of bad people like Newt through a mix master. Why would good people be turned off by the fact that a serial adulterer is mocked for being a serial adulterer? It makes no ****ing sense.

Darth Executor on December 12, 2011 at 6:55 PM

Have you read the pledge? It related to more than marital fidelity, such as upholding DOMA, protecting the sanctity of life and more.

Congresswoman Bachmann, Governor Perry and Senator Santorum also signed the pledge. I think it was rather disingenuous of Tina not to include that information in her post.

Flora Duh on December 12, 2011 at 6:46 PM

Why is it disingenuous when Gingrich didn’t actually sign the pledge and instead offered his own statement which stupidly included a statement about how he wouldn’t pork a woman that wasn’t his wife. This time. Fo’ realz. Third time’s a charm. White man’s word, Kemosabe.

LaRepublican on December 12, 2011 at 6:38 PM

Behold the sum total of Newtbots’ arguments.

- They have no defense for Newt except:

1. Anyone but Obama
2. Newt will beat Obama in the debates

See how conservatives are being played for fools?

Newt will not survive to the October debates as the Democrats savage him with ads that beg to write themselves.

If Gingrich is the nominee, the general will be decided by September at the latest and the debates will definitely be a non-factor.

A thousand debates will not wipe away the stench of Gingrich’s past much less three debates.

Go ahead, this is the issue that will win the day./

I do not approve of Newt’s prior actions but I’m not looking for a saint to be President. I’ll take him at his word. If he screws up, no pun intended, he will throw away his Presidency and I believe that Newt understands and values history and will not want his Presidency tainted by sexual scandals. He will want to go down in the history books as someone who made a real difference. His ego will demand it. If I’m wrong, and he screws up, he is still going to be 200% better than Obama.

JannyMc on December 12, 2011 at 7:11 PM

As soon as Newt becomes the nominee, the DNC will dispatch the semis with all the dirt they have on him to the national media.

I’ll bet there are at least 3-5 additional affairs that become public.

Suggest you follow the link on the pledge. The fidelity statement is part of the original pledge signed by Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, and Gingrich. So it wasn’t a statement limited to Gingrich.

So because we’ve all fallen short of the Glory of God, we should just ignore big, huge moral holes in our leaders and not use the past as a barometer of the future. Gotcha. We may as well just re-elect Billy Jeff by that standard.

I’m merely pointing to the people shocked, shocked that Callista is not popular here, that she is a known home-wrecker. Among conservatives, that rather makes one unpopular. Heck, among the average voters, that causes problems. Newt’s unfaithfulness will cause him problems in the general. Obama will see to that.

They will do it for whomever becomes the GOP nominee.

You can be sure of that. It will not matter if it actually happened; a candidate’s actual background and record only makes their job easier. But do you think they’ll stop if they don’t find anything juicy to use? They’ll just make it up out of whole cloth, or they’ll take a relatively inconsequential item and morph it into something else entirely just so they can claim that it really is “true.” Never mind if the amount of truth in it is less than one half of one percent.

The GOP in general does not seem to understand that they’ve been left completely behind when it comes to opposition research on their own candidates as well as their opponents. Even if they tried their hardest, they might only catch up to the level where the Dems were in 1996. They are completely outclassed and the frustrating thing is that they seem to want to play perennial second fiddle. I have no idea how to go about changing this and it’s maddening beyond belief to me that it happens over and over and over again.

Newt is promoting his wife Callista as the second coming of a Nancyjackielaura first lady delux model who makes a great team with senor Newton.

He also sez she’s running his campaign which is kind of a step up for a former mistress political wife.

Now we already have a jackieelanormarieantoinettemadamemao super delux historical first lady that everybody on the left just thinks is peachy & makes a great co-prezident of vacations, shopping, commissar of dieting & jumping jacks champ.

So yeah…a pushy first spouse in this political climate is a problemo & saying it isn’t is wishful thinking.

I get so tired when Evangelicals inflict their “no one is perfect, the only perfect being died on the cross,” “who are you to judge,” “he has already asked for God’s forgiveness” upon us. It’s such a convenient Deus Ex Machina, yet none of them would hesitate to judge Romney for the slightest intransigence.

Even if I forgive him (which I couldn’t care less, that’s not my role) and even if I am flawed myself, it doesn’t mean I have to vote for him for President of the United States.

And since Newt is now a Catholic, he should be very aware of a Catholic saying, “forgive but don’t forget.”

Many people are just already so tired of the vulgar ugly plebs rolling all around us every damn day.

As a new poster here I made a pledge not to besmirch anyone to make my points. Something to think about, points glean more respect and consideration when delivered in a respectful tone, name calling and tone deafness will not further your cause. I’m not trying to show you up with this meager observation. I want to hear your points, which since you have bothered to post them demonstrates your passion for them, I ask you give my comment to you consideration. Most of us are here to sort out serious issues in the most serious of days confronting our country. I ask you to consider this in your all of your further comments. Thanks.

Get a grip and take a deep breath.

I wasn’t “attacking” Jim Treacher. I was merely pointing out that in the game of celebrity fornication, there are the major leaguers and the minor leaguers.

I really don’t like it when people attribute things to me. Of course, consider your record of posting, I doubt that other people’s feelings or thoughts are of any consequence to you.

We can’t criticize Newt for what in his own religion used to be a capital offense but you can criticize us for not taking a liar at his word? Hypocrite.

Shoot, isn’t this a shame?! Thank you for correcting, Horace- Henry VIII !
Perhaps I was thinking too much of the Catholic aspects of all things Newt> such as Pope Benedict XVI and it all got mixed up in my poor head?
But something like this happened to Cain too, didn’t it?
so please, forgive my error :)

magone on December 12, 2011 at 10:07 PM

sorry, have to disagree! noobs are immaterial in this case.
just look at the blue on her! That just almost Titian blue, and the face, the face with such lines- more then unique. It is exquisite. Have you seen her on telly in profile? Mamma mia! Like the first wife of Julius Caesar.

A person who will cheat on a spouse will cheat on the country…

Newt is NOT trustworthy.

Just look at her! Looks like she’s never been touched!
Stop this madness! (Do they use the same color in their hair…now you know that is love!)
Stop it!….NOW! Let’s go after the guy with the big ears! (Why are ‘they’ so big?)

why? You will just turn it around.. because you are a liberal for life.. and tolerance level you show is just ASTOUNDING!

Liberals talk a lot about tolerance, but they have very little of it.

As anyone that has ever dated or been in a relationship with a cheater, “Once a cheater, always a cheater”. The same flaws that led to the first two affairs will show up again, and again.

IM FREAKING OUT PEOPLE!!!! WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS MAN IS A PROGRESSIVE….STOP LISTENING TO THE PRESS ABOUT WHO CAN WIN…WHOEVER WE NOMINATE WILL BEAT OBAMA…THERE ARE ONLY TWO REAL CONSERVATIVES….BACHMAN AND SANTORUM…THAT IS WHO WE SHOULD BE LOOKING AT…AND THEY CAN WIN!

dom89031 on December 13, 2011 at 10:23 AM

It’s not about what he promises because we all know what a politician’s promises are worth (note current Prezuhdunce for abundant examples). It’s about what he does. The moral and proper thing to do is not cheat because God forbid if the lameblameshamestream media uncovers fabricates it, the 24×7 news cycle will know of no other news or catastrophic events occurring in the rest of the world.

bw222 on December 12, 2011 at 7:21 PM

WTF?
When you have nothing else worth typing to support your point I suppose referencing the first lady’s ass is about as eloquent as you can be huh?
You could have at least made reference to her ass claiming it to be the POTUS in a small attempt at sounding humorous.
Obviously WAY too high of a bar for you though.

Really? It has come to pointing out flaws in a woman in your political discussion? That’s just a cheap shot. I’m sure your Mom would be proud. You must be a hit with the ladies. I bet they swoon at your ass rhetoric.

And I was so excited to be registered and participate here….underwhelming to say the least. Hoping you are the exception and not the rule.

Really?

Lean a little on December 13, 2011 at 11:53 AM

If Gingrich is the nominee, the general will be decided by September at the latest and the debates will definitely be a non-factor.

A thousand debates will not wipe away the stench of Gingrich’s past much less three debates.

Ahhhh….finally some objectivity here. :)

As mentioned in earlier comments this will be the fourth time Newt has promised to be faithful to his spouse. Marriage vows are indeed suich a promise. This shouldn’t be overlooked.
Someone please tell me why we would believe him on his 4th promise!? Assuming the 1st, 2nd, and maybe even 3rd were believed yet ended up being lies. Even if he does remain faithful he has lost ALL expectation of having the public believe any promise he makes. ANY.
So tell me again how such a repeat public liar will get elected when it comes time to endure the heat and scrutiny of a presidential election in this day and age?
Insanity to think it’s possible IMO.
Better to focus on increasing GOP representation in congress.

bw222 on December 13, 2011 at 12:18 PM

Oh you didn’t offend me. You being offensive doesn’t mean you offended me….just means you have nothing better to contribute to the discussion. Which offends me not at all.
Probably offended a few HA females out there but that’s your problem not mine. Doubt you care honestly.
I do have a normal size ass though which apparently appeases/soothes you in some strange way. Perhaps you requesting a pic of my ass to offer your comments might offend me.

Just keep offering your thought-provoking insightful opinions and you will be just fine. No need to bristle. It’s just your intellect you are showing. It’s not like you are showing your ass….just showing that you are an ass.

No need for the apology though I assure you.

Lean a little on December 13, 2011 at 12:39 PM

Heh. He made the same promise to Jackie and Marianne. Newt is a chameleon.

(isn’t a newt a slimy aquatic lizard-like amphibian actually?)

Haha….I see the slimy lizard analogies are flowing today.

Alas, it was good seeing you again Newt. We hardly got a chance to know the “new” Newt.

Marianne Gingrich speaks out

Newts skeleton closet…he’s already headed for irrelevancy

We are actually choosing between the man who created the blueprint for ObamaCare, and a serial cheater who lauded a government healthcare mandate.

F**k you, Republicans. See you in 2016, if there’s anything left by then.

Some of the posters here are really misapplying the biblical principle of forgiveness. If someone wrongs me personally then the issue of whether I forgive is certainly valid; if a politician cheats on his wife then the forgiveness is between him and her. We should use our common sense and judgement to determine whether we trust a politician or not, based on his personal and public life and the decisions he has made.

Saying I have to forgive Newt Gingrich is like people who point to the biblical principle of taking care of the poor, and interpret that to mean that it’s the government’s job to do it- when it actually refers to the church.

So……you would allow an apologetic child molester who has been forgiven by his victim to babysit your kids?

Didn’t think so.
