Good ole Newt has decided to run for President. This is the same Newt who played the ‘family values’ card as a Congressman, blasting then President Clinton for marital infidelities, while secretly carrying on his own affair. His affair doesn’t bother me so much as the ‘holier than thou’ hypocrisy.
So now he gets to answer reporter questions about his own past … the marriages, the affairs and the occasional misrepresenting of facts during speeches. His responses already provide some great campaign humor. My favorite so far is what he told the Christian Broadcasting Network … he engaged in his affairs because he was overworked and overcome with patriotism for America. Wow, that is original. He “did it” for his country.
The scary part for me is that someone might actually vote for this guy.
