More Conservative hypocrisy

Does this sort of thing surprise anyone anymore? Conservative family values apparently apply to everyone OTHER than Conservatives.

In an interview with a Christian publication, ultra-right poster boy Newt Gingrich admitted he sullied the sacred bonds of holy matrimony by boning a woman other than his wife.


I'll give you a minute to cleanse your mouth of the vomitus that splashed up involuntarily from your stomach...

"I did not have sex with that
woman...oh, wait a minute; yes I did!"

From the Raw Story:
Potential Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich admitted in an interview with conservative Christian group Focus on the Family that he had an extramarital affair even while leading the charge to have President Clinton impeached.

"The honest answer is yes," he said according to the Associated Press. "There are times that I have fallen short of my own standards. There's certainly times when I've fallen short of God's standards."

"Gingrich argued in the interview, however, that he should not be viewed as a hypocrite for pursuing Clinton's infidelity," writes the AP.

Clinton was punished for perjury, says Gingrich, who claims that he was not "rendering judgment" on a "personal level" against Clinton.

Gingrich still remains very popular among Republicans, and finished fourth in the unscientific straw poll at last weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference, despite having not yet entered the race.

Did Newt have sex with the lady in the Oval Office, then lie about it while under oath??

This is just blatant smearing and really doesn't become the Liberal constituency.

I guess Clinton, the most powerful person in the world at the time, was fine when he lied.

No, Clinton was WRONG to perjur himself, and he was IMPEACHED for it! By definition, that isn't fine. He was tried by the Senate for his crime and dragged through the mud.

Jesus, what IS it with you Wingnuts? You seem to think we all forgave Bill Clinton for his lying under oath. We didn't. He was a scumbag and an embarrassment. He didn't get away without punishment; he was IMPEACHED! That's a stain that will always be on his legacy. Bill Clinton will be remembered by history as a punchline to a bad joke.

However, all those Conservative hacks who were calling for his head because of his personal behaviour and not necessarily for his perjury, they can't seem to hold themselves to the same standards.

And that, my friend, is HYPOCRISY!

Newtie divorced his wife while she was going thru chemo... he's a pig.

Between him and Guiliani, I don't know which one has a worse world view of women.
