Newt Gingrich is the bachelor party; Mitt Romney is the wedding.
Thus saith CNN.
Perry lost on ability not personality,
the Republican strategist continued. There was also some mention of back surgery gone awry and implanted stem cells which didn't alleviate the discomfort but I wasn't paying that much attention to the words because I was stuck on the image of a potential President of the United States of America being likened to a bachelor party.
What have we come to?
I don't care if he buys his wife nice jewelry or if he takes lavish vacations; living well is the best revenge, after all. What worries me is his moral character. The Washington Post debunked the deathbed divorce papers story, saying the discussion was no surprise to either party and that
Gingrich’s marriage to Battley had been troubled for many years before it dissolved 31 years ago, both parties have said.So, she was neither hurt nor dead. That was good news. The bad news is the rest of the paragraph:
Battley, who is seven years older than Gingrich, had been Gingrich’s high school math teacher in Columbus, Ga. They began dating after he graduated and were married in 1962, when Gingrich was 19 and a freshman at Emory University in Atlanta ...I wonder what his parents thought about that.
Thrice married and financially profligate - these are only the pieces that are reported. Say what you will about President Obama's failure to fulfill the dreams of the left within an hour and a half of being elected, no one questions his character. He rolls his eyes at the Kardashians and his children don't have Facebook pages. He's married to an extraordinarily impressive woman and he knows how lucky he is to have her. He has dinner with his family every night that he's in town. He respects his mother-in-law.
I have no doubt that Speaker Gingrich is an intelligent man. He has a professorial air and great hair.
That's not enough for me.********
I could go on and on about Newt, but I'm watching pictures of Hilary Clinton and Aung San Suu Kyi and I can't stop smiling. Mrs. Clinton can't seem to let go of her hand... I can feel the admiration.... it's a much nicer place to be than contemplating the Republican presidential field.
