    Looks like it will be tomorrow.

    -----------
    NEW YORK (AP) - An ABC News executive tells The Associated Press that the network has interviewed Newt Gingrich's second wife and is likely to air the segment Thursday on "Nightline."

    That's two days before the South Carolina primary, where the Republican presidential candidate is trying to topple GOP front-runner Mitt Romney.

    http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D9SBN46O0&show_article=1
    -----------
    Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband's career with a single interview.

    Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

    She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail.

    "He believes that what he says in public and how he lives don't have to be connected," Marianne Gingrich, Newt's wife of 18 years, explained to ESQUIRE last year.

    I find this interesting. This woman is going to try and smear Gingrich for dumping her by admitting she is a homewrecker and tramp. Go figure. :confused:

    So far, all this is very old news and the reason I have stated that I would not vote for Newt if it were just him and Obama. He is a corrupt man who has been horrible to his wives. I don't like many of his policies and how he back stabbed us conservatives many times when he was a Speaker, but his personal life is even worse.

    Newt's smutty past is old business. This is just another example of the MSM's love of money. Tabloid titillation always brings in the dough. Not to mention the lefty's joy of pounding on a "conservative".

    Is that why Fox News and its talking heads like to smear those they consider liberal.

    Newt has such a sorted past, both personal and political, that I do not believe he is qualified to be president.

    I do not know how loose she will be with the truth. I will not watch the interview as I believe it will be sensational but not of much value in determining Newt's qualifications.

    The worst thing you can do is watch the program. And I have to admit you're right about Faux News Channel, sometimes.

    I remember when C.T.Boy said conservatives don't read the books he likes, because there are too many big words. If asked, I'll show the post.

    The word you are looking for is SORDID, not SORTED. SORTED is when you put stuff into groups, like say, somebody counting and SORTING the different races he allows into his home.

    It may be old news, and a major reason that I eliminated Newt before he announced he was running, but it is legitimate news especially when the ex-wife speaks on the issues. He is a scoundrel.

    What surprises me is that so many, despite his horrific past, still like him.

    Is it possible that all politicians are scoundrels? I mean... if they weren't, then they couldn't succeed in politics.

    I believe there are a few good men in politics but most are not good. However, Newt to me is the epitome of what we don't want in politics.

    Just about everyone agrees that being in politics brings some form of compromise. When it is done by one's own candidate to bring about what we personally desire we call it a victory even if our victory goes against the way of the Lord and or hurts the nation as a whole. When it is done by our own candidate and it brings about other then what we desire and it agrees with the principles of God and or might help the nation as a whole we call them crooks and scoundrels.
    We admit compromise is happening and we usually hold disdain for it when it goes against our desires yet for some reason we continue to seek those who will compromise to get what we each want personally instead of someone who stands on Godly principles with no compromise.
    Since God never compromises and we are to be as He why would we think that this mess we are in because of all the compromise will be solved by more compromise instead of a man who will not compromise the values of God?
    Why not seek to vote into office people who have the same principles of God who will not compromise and pray that God fix the nation instead of trying to get compromising ungodly men who have already wrecked it to try and fix it?

    Newt is not my candidate. I am not totally up on his political backstabbing. However, if I absolutely had to choose, I would choose a repentant (supposedly) adulterer over a baby killer any day of the week. As far as having to choose between Newt and Romney, same choice, considering Romney's deplorable record on life that he only makes political excuses for.

    And there's more, but you get the drift. Newt's no conservative. If he ends up being the nominee, I will write one in.

    Curtis, I respect a lot of what you say, but if you are going to write in someone when you vote you may as just make it Obama's name.

    It will have the same effect as any other that you could come up with.
