Since it wasn't covered at LCR, we bring you this flashback to early March of this year, Newt's "I cheated on my wife because I was working so hard for my country" moment:
This is one of the most truly shameless cases of pandering to Christian conservatives that I have ever seen, transcribed from the video above:
Buh-bye, Newt, you were toast long before your threw Paul Ryan under the bus.
“There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate,” Gingrich told CBN’s David Brody, in an interview taped at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition…
“And what I can tell you is that when I did things that were wrong, I wasn’t trapped in situation ethics, I was doing things that were wrong, and yet, I was doing them,” Gingrich said. “I found that I felt compelled to seek God’s forgiveness. Not God’s understanding, but God’s forgiveness. I do believe in a forgiving God. And I think most people, deep down in their hearts hope there’s a forgiving God. Somebody once said that when we’re young, we seek justice, but as we get older, we seek mercy. There’s something to that, I think.”
This guy makes Sarah Palin like a total class act.
