I've heard of long distance relationships-but this is ridiculous. You gotta be one desperate dude to fly all the way to Argentina to tickle some broad.

If he is going to: one, pretend to be one thing and while being the total opposite; and two, pretend to be strongly in favor of a certain set of ethics and while doing the total opposite - then he should consider moving to San Francisco and going into politics there, since SF is the world's capital for the world's very most extreme example of windbag demagogue politicians.

So he like Gingrich before him is getting a little on the side.
The so called "family values party" is anything but.

The sad thing is a few months from now like Guilliani and Gingrich before him, the gov will be back in the saddle insisting it's not what he does, it's what he says...and HE (the GOP) has all the answers.

The men of the GOP are too self righteous, too cocky.

The result of throwing rocks and living in glass homes means others continue to see their hypocrisy. Sad but no longer shocking

I am a crazy gun nut right winger who blindly supports Republicans, and may I say: this guy is a total d-bag.
On the other hand, after Spitzer, Fitzpatrick, money-in-the-freezer guy, Blago, etc. it's nice to see a GOPer finally get some scandal action.
Welcome back from your coma.

You don't remember Republican war hero Calif. Congressman Duke Cunningham, doing time for DEMANDING $2.4 million in bribes ? Or shamed, convicted Alaska ex-Senator Ted Stevens, who was bought for a lot less ?

Mark Foley and Bob Allen, disgraced RePERVlicans from Florida, or Larry Craig, RePERVlican Senator from Idaho ?

Or the torturers, waterboarders Rumsfeld, Wolfewitz, Gonzales, Cheney ?

Or the incompetents Bachmann, Palin, Hastert, Libby and of course, Bush ??

Could have been you seem to watch these thing better than I do.. don't care.. this is NOT party thing the point is BOTH SIDES are doing IT.. so don't be so hypocritical Clinton lied to the people and the other apparently lied to himself.. See I voted for Clinton.. I knew he was telling a lie when he got up before the nation and denied it.. I found it stupid the other side made such a deal about it.. I also find that the Dems making such a big deal out of this is as equally as DUMB.. Unlike you if it's wrong on one side it wrong for the other.. no matter what they campaign on.. Right now I am happy I left the Democratic party I never realized what nasty people they are..

Thanks for reminding me about Guiliani. I moved from New York with the likes of Guiliani and Spitzer (and McGreevey in NJ) to South Carolina and what do I get? A Southern cheater. There's only one permanent solution for these guys -- divorce asap!

His office says he is hiking in the mountains to clear his mind and upon his return he says he was in Argentina with a woman that isn't his wife.
Sounds like he has a multitude of problems and needs to take some time to sort them out.
This level of dishonesty is not what voters want.
another crooked republican, one more for the party of family values
