Newt's just trying to protect the sanctity of marraige from the gays, since he's knows first hand the harm the heterosexuals have done to it.

"His exploratory committee’s website features the former Georgia lawmaker with his third wife, Callista. When traveling, they are introduced as a team. And when Gingrich meets with key activists and donors, she is at his side."

The first question I would ask this "team" is how long Newt intends to keep this wife around... long enough to make it through the election? Until she gets cancer? Until he tires of her and seaches for a younger model? LOL

Sanctity of marriage my left @ss cheek!!

An open letter from Candace Gingrich-Jones to her brother:

Dear Newt,

I recently had the displeasure of watching you bash the protestors of the Prop 8 marriage ban to Bill O'Reilly on FOX News. I must say, after years of watching you build your career by stirring up the fears and prejudices of the far right, I feel compelled to use the words of your idol, Ronald Reagan, "There you go, again."

However, I realize that you may have been a little preoccupied lately with planning your resurrection as the savior of your party, so I thought I would fill you in on a few important developments you might have overlooked.

The truth is that you're living in a world that no longer exists. I, along with millions of Americans, clearly see the world the way it as -- and we embrace what it can be. You, on the other hand, seem incapable of looking for new ideas or moving beyond what worked in the past.

Welcome to the 21st century, big bro. I can understand why you're so afraid of the energy that has been unleashed after gay and lesbian couples had their rights stripped away from them by a hateful campaign. I can see why you're sounding the alarm against the activists who use all the latest tech tools to build these rallies from the ground up in cities across the country.

This unstoppable progress has at its core a group we at HRC call Generation Equality. They are the most supportive of full LGBT equality than any American generation ever -- and when it comes to the politics of division, well, they don't roll that way. 18-24 year olds voted overwhelmingly against Prop 8 and overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. And the numbers of young progressive voters will only continue to grow. According to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning, about 23 million 18-29 year olds voted on Nov. 4, 2008 -- the most young voters ever to cast a ballot in a presidential election. That's an increase of 3 million more voters compared to 2004.

These are the same people who helped elect Barack Obama and sent a decisive message to your party. These young people are the future and their energy will continue to drive our country forward. Even older Americans are turning their backs on the politics of fear and demagoguery that you and your cronies have perfected over the years.

This is a movement of the people that you most fear. It's a movement of progress -- and your words on FOX News only show how truly desperate you are to maintain control of a world that is changing before your very eyes.

Then again, we've seen these tactics before. We know how much the right likes to play political and cultural hardball, and then turn around and accuse us of lashing out first. You give a pass to a religious group -- one that looks down upon minorities and women -- when they use their money and membership roles to roll back the rights of others, and then you label us "fascists" when we fight back. You belittle the relationships of gay and lesbian couples, and yet somehow neglect to explain who anointed you the protector of "traditional" marriage. And, of course, you've also mastered taking the foolish actions of a few people and then indicting an entire population based on those mistakes. I fail to see how any of these patterns coincide with the values of "historic Christianity" you claim to champion.

Again, nothing new here. This is just more of the blatant hypocrisy we're used to hearing.

What really worries me is that you are always willing to use LGBT Americans as political weapons to further your ambitions. That's really so '90s, Newt. In this day and age, it's embarrassing to watch you talk like that. You should be more afraid of the new political climate in America, because, there is no place for you in it.

In other words, stop being a hater, big bro.

I am amazed that the right still thinks that hate is a winning strategy in a general election. I hope we do get a very anti gay candidate from the republican party, it would leave Obama with no choice than to further embrace equal rights.

But then I believe that STUPID should actually hurt.......lol!!!

Hey Sweetie,
I see my comment got garnished with the stupid judging icons again......like I care.......lol!!!

The truth of the matter is that as long as Politicians continue to think they can divert attention to non important issues like hating Gays and Lesbians.........the likelihood that the American people will continue to vote them out of office!!!

Those who pay attention to what's going on......aren't going to be fooled by these stupid games.

Either make the economy better by improving jobs and stabilizing the housing market or be prepared to get voted out in 2012.

They made a big deal out of 60 mil in spending cuts, but they haven't talked about how much it could cost to defend all of the current and future DOMA lawsuits. They spent 40 mil investigating Clinton, this could be far more.

and the ENTIRE TIME - years - that he pursued President Clinton's
"BJ's by Monica", NEWT WAS HAVING AN AFFAIR.

Now he's on his 3rd wife and has a history of extramarital affairs.

He sure is some fine example of family values. He's a two-faced biased-bigot to the core.
