Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry were each told by God to run for President. If Newt talked to God, we haven’t heard about it. Maybe the reason he doesn’t talk to God is that he doesn’t speak to himself. He already knows what he is thinking. Last night Newt Gingrich’s second wife Marianne gave an interview disclosing that Newt had suggested that they should agree to have sex with other people.It is the comments regarding sex that everyone is talking and writing about today.
However we have known for a long time that Gingrich has had three wives, affairs, and a history of unfaithfulness. The more important revelation from Newt’s ex-wife was that he said, “It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”
Given this quote, it is important to remember the story Rachel Maddow did about Newt. In her report she quoted Newt saying:
- He made Romney’s career possible, and Mitt Romney is rich today because of him.
- It is his “destiny” to save America.
- “People like me are what stand between us and Auschwitz.”
- (In a hand written note of Newt’s) “It is my mission to advocate for civilization.” Newt wrote that he was a teacher of the rules of civilization and leader of civilized forces.
When Newt was brought before the House of Representatives for 80 ethics violations, the House voted overwhelmingly, 395-28, to reprimand Gingrich and to fine him $300,000. The Republican Representative, Nancy Johnson, who chaired that ethics committee stated:
“Today we conclude this case by imposing a heavy penalty on the leader of this House. It is a tough penalty, unprecedented and appropriate.”
It seems that Gingrich thinks that the rules that apply to OTHER people do not apply to him. In an act of defiance, the day after being elected to his 11th term of office Gingrich announced his resignation. Gingrich stated, “I’m willing to lead but I’m not willing to preside over people who are cannibals. My only fear would be that if I tried to stay, it would just overshadow whoever my successor is.”
Newt Gingrich is a dangerous man. He is delusional. He thinks he is above the law. He seems to perceive himself as all-powerful. He seems to perceive himself as the savior of mankind. It’s now clear why Sarah and Todd Palin have endorsed Gingrich.
