    What Gingrich is doing makes you think of Mark Sanford and other right-wing evangelicals. Playing the forgiveness card. Bush did that too. He found you know who and all was well. It was almost a bragging point to have “repented” and turned his life around. Catholics don’t think like that I hate to tell Gingrich. Guess he doesn’t know as much about his adopted faith as he thought he did.

    Well then, if God has forgiven him, then who are we to find fault? I’m convinced. Gingrich has not done one slimy thing ever in my mind, all is forgiven and gone forever. He is a wonderful person. Gag, gaggy, gag.

    South Carolina Gov says Gingrich’s time has past – he’s just a sound-bite.

    Words fail me. How pitiful is this? All I can do is shake my head.

    I can’t say whether God have forgiven Newt Gingrich or not, that’s between him and his God. But all I know is he don’t deserve to be President of this United States. And I don’t like all this racists talk, have God forgiven him for that too? Newt i not worthy to be President.

    Gingrich is disgusting!!! He has the audacity to question President Obama’s moral values. Hello!!!… Pot calling kettle black.

    OT: I just saw SecDef Bob Gates interview on 60 minutes and he was insightful and thoughtful. God bless him; I’m gonna miss him when he leaves.

    You know I could care less about Gingrich’s philandering, it’s the hypocrisy that I can’t stomach. Leading the moral right in the Clinton:Monica impeachment crusade when he was carrying on with his own extra marital dalliances. If God forgave him..fine, that does not mean I have to. Oh..has he expressed forgiveness to President Clinton?
    He is a mean, vile man. I was raised Catholic,with 2 priests in the family, Gingrich does not speak like an enlightened compassionate Catholic. He has forgiven himself (how convenient) but he can NEVER forgive others. I believe in Karma, and like soo many before him, it is about to come back to him.

      I am Catholic too Carla…

      Unfortunately the Catholic church in America has been hijacked by the Republican party…
      As far as I can see there are very few ‘enlightened compassionate Catholics’ left especially in the hierachy…

      I get the Catholic Voice and you should read some of the vile, hateful columns written by catholic Bishops and letters from some of the vilest, most close-minded, racist, hateful, holier than thou parishoners who want to excommunicate or even burn at the stake any Catholic who does not tow the republican line…

      A solid President Obama supporter I know went into a Catholic bookstore recently to shop for her son’s first holy communion…

      In comes a loud woman screaming: “who’s got that car out there with an Obama sticker on it?”

      The faithful Obamacrat who also happens to be a brilliant attorney looked up, smiled, claimed ownership and asked if there was a problem…

      The obnoxious bully proceeded to ask how she can be Catholic and support President Obama…all of it of course revolving around abortion and so-called ‘pro-life’ issues…

      Biggest mistake!

      By the time Proud Obamacrat attorney finished, the bully and her fellow silent shoppers who were listening in of course, were given a lesson in catholic and republican hypocrisy and the quiet but firm articulation of how President Obama effortlessly lives and leads in the truest sense of the very Christianity bully woman and her ilk all proclaim but only pay lip service to while hiding their wickedness, hate and worst prejudices behind so-called church teachings…

      Start for instance to spend all that time and energy used to fight President Obama and planned parenthood etc. to help previously unborn fetuses now turned teenagers and others in crises at various crisis centers and homeless shelters…Obamacrat attorney volunteers and supports several local centers did bully catholic woman eve visit one or did she spend her time waging war against President Obama…?

      Why didn’t self-proclaimed christian and pro-life activist President Bush in 8 years and six years of a republican congress not reverse Roe v. Wade or even by executive order, outlaw abortion…And why no such demands from Mrs bully and her self-righteous catholic crowd who want to hold President Obama to the ridiculous and clearly bogus standards they failed to hold their dear George Bush to…

      After she paid for her purchases, she turned to leave and said to the churcheous loud bully woman and the now gathered red-faced crowd to feel free to respond while she was still in the store and not wait to, in their infinitely maliciously catholic way, to gossip behind her back after she drove off…

      Here’s your chance to contradict anything I’ve just said she told them…Crickets…

      And oh by the way she told them, this devout Catholic and die-hard President Obama supporter, will do everything in her power to make sure that he is re-elected…and he absolutely will be as surely as there is a Catholic God she told them…

      It was such a funny encounter…

      I appreciate your posting that, Fred. That’s the first chance I’ve had to listen to Mr. Gates for longer than a couple of minutes. It was quite touching to realize that he was/is committed to the troops. After all the years he has served, he does look tired. I wish him all the best in his retirement. [Oops, I was so caught up in the interview that I forgot to check whether Katie C. asked any 'gotcha' questions, or not!]

    Ok, TOD family I just got home after my weekend of volunteer work on behalf of OFA. If only I could write down my whole experience and all the great energy and enthusiasm and kindness people have towards this Great man. We went to four Mega churches to talk to the youth about PBO’s work, all the promises he has delivered and much more work that is needed to be done. After that We were given permission from the Pastor to register new voters and we set out tables and chairs to wait for people to come out of the sunday services. We did some talking and listened alot and the most incredible story came from this woman whose husband was helped fight his cancer because of the health care reform my president signed and that got alot of aplause. We heard so many stories of hope and we asked them to spread the word to others in the congregation and tell their neighbours and friends. Some of them promised to volunteer if need be. So, so many more stories which I can’t write down because am kind of exhausted but it’s 100% worth it to serve this amazing man because he serves me every single day without complaining. Next weekend I will be working with a new group that was assigned to me, where we will be visiting 2 local mosques to talk to our muslim brothers and sisters about what 2012 means to them and which am very much looking forward to. Off I go to soak my feet.

      Thank you lots, Me4O! You are doing exciting work, and though I can’t participate, I feel really proud of you and your team, as well as my President! His dedication and goodness are definitely reaching out, and with the work of people like you helping him, I am anticipating a 2012 victory. Sending virtual hugs and a virtual foot massage your way! ;)

      Thank you for your beautiful story Me4Obama. There is such power in love and compassion. From the President. From you. And from all of the people in the congregation. Beautiful. :)

      Bless you Me4obama. We all have to do what we can to help re-elect this President and I am willing to do what I can. This is to important to trust an Republican or someone like Ron Paul with the White House.

    You know God does forgives sin. But the Bible says also that you will reap what you sow. Mr Gingrich needs to repent of his racist ways and turn from them.
    May God strengthen all my sisters and brothers who are promoting the work for the 2012 election of President Barack Obama.
