    Why are we considering electing a bully to the highest office in the land?

    Please explain to me in a rational argument, why Gingrich is a better role model for our sons than John Edwards and deserves to be President.

    I don't think any of them deserve to be president. Major flaws with all of them, therefore I will not be voting this time around. smile

    Because he shut the gvt down when Clinton was prez, and the bullies want to derail Obama even more. They have no other goal, so what do they care who does it? And besides, he's already done it once....what does the country mean to him? Nothing.

    Gingrich has been married three times.  Esquire did an interview of Marianne Gingrich, his second wife, that tells the story of how he and Edwards connect.  You might read it here and comment again.  I would appreciate feedback on this. 

    Yes, I know we are all human.  But someone who dumps two supposed loves of his life seemingly out of the blue... is this someone we want to endorse?  He asked Marianne Gingrich to marry him while still married to his first wife (who was ill, possibly with cancer- she was about to go into surgery to find out).  This woman is the mother of his two daughters. 

    Then he asked a third wife to marry him while still married to Marianne, who says in the Esquire interview, "He was impressed easily by position, status and money... he wanted to be somebody."

    Certainly a President must be ambitious, or he/she wouldn't run.  But this fickle and needy?  He was proposing to get into a new contract before he had dispensed with the old.  (Is this even legal?) Marianne says he has lost his way, compromising too often for money and not enough on principle.

    Gingrich!
    Probably the last person I would consider voting for.
    He is as corrupt as the day is long, always has been always will be.
    A huge amount of the things that have drug the country down happened under his watch and with his help.
    I think I would even vote for Palin before I would vote for Gingrich... well OK maybe not. But if he gets the slot I will be voting 3rd party or for Paul as a write in.

    Gingrich thinks more highly of himself than anything else or anyone else.  He will never get my vote.
