Posted on 01/18/2012 6:34:27 PM PST by advance_copy
Bob Walker, a senior Gingrich adviser, says the campaign will fight back. It is pretty nasty to use personal tragedy for political exploitation, he says. That was a very bitter divorce, and youre talking about somebody who is still, probably, very bitter.
Below, Gingrichs daughters issue a memo to ABC News:
To: ABC News Leadership
From: Kathy Lubbers, Jackie Cushman
Date: January 18, 2012
The failure of a marriage is a terrible and emotional experience for everyone involved. Anyone who has had that experience understands it is a personal tragedy filled with regrets, and sometimes differing memories of events.
We will not say anything negative about our fathers ex-wife. He has said before, privately and publicly, that he regrets any pain he may have caused in the past to people he loves.
ABC News or other campaigns may want to talk about the past, just days before an important primary election. But Newt is going to talk to the people of South Carolina about the future about job creation, lower taxes, and about who can defeat Barack Obama by providing the sharpest contrast to his damaging, extreme liberalism. We are confident this is the conversation the people of South Carolina are interested in having.
Our father is running for President because of his grandchildren so they can inherit the America he loves. To do that, President Obama must be defeated. And as the only candidate in the race, including Obama, who has actually helped balance the national budget, create jobs, reform welfare, and cut taxes and spending, Newt felt compelled to run to serve his country and safeguard his grandchildrens future.

She doesn’t strike me as nasty; she strikes me as someone who knows personally that Newt is not suited for the Presidency
—>>Only because she is not going.
I am also disgusted with both the MSM and GOP’s sleazy tactics. There is NO way in hell that I will vote for Mitt. I would rather watch Rome burn than vote for the sleaziest snake in the GOP - Milt.
The ex wife attack will just give Newt a chance to show that he can fight back against these maniacs. He won't let them make this stick.
He knows how the game is played and how the media create narratives to advance Obama.
Let's sit back and watch Newt's magic work. This should be good.
This will be like when terrorists making bombs accidentally cause them to explode. Oops. A huge backfire.
It bugged me when he paraded her out in public holding her hand even while having an affair.
She always looked uncomfortable...like he was using her as a prop. Perhaps he was.
Never underestimate the ability of FReepers to do nasty, however.
What happens if Newt runs?, I ask.
"He can't do it without me," she replies. "I told him if I'm not in agreement, fine, it's easy" --she giggles at her naughtiness. "I just go on the air the next day, and I undermine everything...I don't want him to be president and I don't think he should be."
So who is the real megalomaniac here?
You can smell the stink already. Sickening. This is going to be bad for Gingrich. It may be unfair but that is the way it is.
And we still don't have a clue about the history of Obama or whatever his name is....
So after reading all the threads on this ABC Marianne Gingrich interview it appears this is nothing more than a rehash of the interviews Marianne has given before. ABC News is trying to make something of this and say it is new and try and take Newt out so their man Mitt can win.
How about ABC airing a story that shows the Morman Church as the biggest racist church on the planet and Willard the
liberal has never strayed from that Church, has been with his entire life and donated millions of dollars to the Church that contains this in their doctrine. He was once even a “Bishop” in this out-and-out racist church. Hell will freeze over before the any news channel reports this absolute fact about the cult that is known as the Morman Church.
Joseph Smith first president, prophet, and founder of the Mormon Church:
Had I anything to do with the negro, I would confine them by strict law to their own species,
Joseph Fielding Smith, tenth President and Prophet.
In 1963, Look magazine interviewed, at that time, the leader of the LDS Church; Joseph Fielding Smith. Concerning negroes, Smith stated:
I would not want you to believe that we bear any animosity toward the Negro. ‘Darkies’ are wonderful people, and they have their place in our church (Look magazine, October 22, 1963, 79; emphasis added).
Smith also taught that “Negroes” were inferior to other races:
Not only was Cain called upon to suffer, but because of his wickedness he became the father of an inferior race. A curse was place upon him and that curse has been continued through his lineage and must do so while time endures. Millions of souls have come into this world cursed with black skin and have been denied the privilege of Priesthood and the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel. These are the descendants of Cain. Moreover, they have been made to feel their inferiority and have been separated from the rest of mankind from the beginning we will also hope that blessings may eventually be given to our Negro brethren, for they are our brethren—children of God-—notwithstanding their black covering emblematical of eternal darkness (The Way to Perfection, 101-02; emphasis added).
Brigham Young second President and Prophet:
You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild and seemingly deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind. . . . Cain slew his brother. Cain might have been killed, and that would put a termination to that line of human beings. This was not to be, and the Lord put a mark upon him, which was the flat nose and black skin. Trace mankind down to after the flood, and then another cursed is pronounced upon the same race—that they should be the “servants of servants;” and they will be until that curse is removed; and the Abolitionists cannot help it, nor in the least alter that decree (Journal of Discourses, 7:290; emphasis added)
Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be (ibid., 10:110; emphasis added)
Brigham Young stated that his sermons (as cited above) are Scripture:
I have never yet preached a sermon and sent it out to the children of man, that they may not call Scripture (ibid., 13:95).
This is what I was referring to in regards to Santorum. http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-pn-santorum-targets-gingrich-in-south-carolina-20120118,0,6139395.story
whoa there, yeah well we have a really really crummy bunch of clowns running for president
Uh...my pick is the one who doesn't want high office.
It’s just rehashed old story that she already told.
Dog aint gonna hunt.
It may end up helping Gingrich, with the liberal Media now coming after the conservative.
Do people really not remember what a wild ride the 60s and 70s were? In a whole bunch of ways?
Rather...who IS the one who wants high office.
Newt has owned his past failures. Marianne needs to move on with her life. She is enjoying her 15 mins. She got a Drudge siren. That is hugh and series.
Drudge has sunk to new levels. Drudge gave Marianne of Gilligan's Island his RED SIREN in January Republican Primary. Drudge.... is a RINO at best.
I’m for Newt. He’s the only one we have that can beat Obama. The MSM wants him to lose for that reason.
There was no marriage. Marianne was married before.
I think they are all idiot clowns
There is not a sensible honest character among them
I do not believe in the “lesser of two evils” ideology
Where is a good real candidate?
They were separated for 6 years and had only reunited for one when she giggled about ruining his presidential chances. If my marriage was shaky I don't think I'd be making threats.
I have to go to bed. Night!
I have been here a looooooooooooooooooooooong time Miss Christie, not moving along, not voting for Newt might hold my nose and vote for Romney but then again, I think the Mormon church is evil, so I actually can’t vote for him either, can’t vote for a Democrat, so I do not know what to do
Write in or just vote for the strongest conservatives for Congress that you can.
so was newtie prior to marianne
Here we go again. First Herman Cain and the bimbos, now Newt Gingrich and his ex wife. Someone must be paying Gingrich’s ex wife millions (Axlerod, most likely).
And we have an ass-clown who is president.
You mean the commie invasion that occurred in the 60s and 70s
Newt needs to hire Cain’s attorney.
And I quote “Bitches, man”
His first “wife” had a parental relationship with him. Some people have called it rape.
We’re talking Christian marriage, not Muslim marriage or Mormon marriage.
I’m not real sure what her complaint is. She was running with Newt before his divorce with his first wife.
Obviously, she was a rebound relationship, and they fail about 75% of the time.
I know, his whole marital history is creepy beyond belief
He hasn’t been born yet. Love you guys who criticize everybody since you are just so above politics. Good luck with that.
Pray for America
Hey, this proves Romney's not a used car salesman- he's an aborted fetus salesman. I think I just found a new tagline!
Don’t worry. We will see non-stop hit pieces on the Mormon Church if and when Romney wins the nomination (or is the only candidate left in the GOP). Count on it.
Satan says that bad things in our past disqualify us from being able to do good in the future.
What say you?
Or his beard.
yeah well I am a mother of children and wish we were living in the world of my childhood without sex sex sex sex inflaming everybody’s mind all the time
LOL, very, very, very hard for a politician to sue anyone.
What good would he do here? Apparently, Newt wasn’t able to get a shut-up clause written into their divorce.
I say satan is a liar and a loser and it is written “I saw satan fall from the sky like a flash of lightening
Libel is Libel.
- - - - -
+1 from me. Although my being Mormon did end up having something to do with my conversion to Christ, it made me see that I wasn’t really a Christian even though I said and thought I was.
I am happy you are His; you were created for Him.
I know a lady who was badly hurt by the Mormons....so ick plus 1
And the stuff the MSM is gonna pull up about LDS inc will make the RF threads look like a day at the beach.
I hope that by now, after they’ve done this a few times, we’ve come to the man who will punch back and keep punching until the opposition is a bloody mess on the political floor.
Wait until Zer0 gets divorced from the White Hut.
I am sorry about your friend. Sadly it happens too often, anyone who thinks they are these wonderful, family oriented good neighborly conservative people, needs to spend some time in the ex-mormon support forums online.
Just the fact there there are hundreds of support groups for them speaks volumes.
How many ex-methodist support groups do you know of?
I can’t help but truly feel sorry for Mr. Gingrich when it comes to women.
He was 16 years old, and his geometry teacher should have known better. His second wife sounds like a real chain-smoking winner, too.
