no one yet has the balls to go HAM on him, that's why

they're trying to preserve decorum, but Neut is one of those people you have to push, like Nicholson in "A Few Good Men". He has to be pushed to the point of outting himself and none of them are man enough to do it.

"The best defense is a good offense" is his game. Had John King been up on the facts of Gingrich's past he could have stood totally in the truth and been a journalist and done an effective job of push-back. "It was ABC who did the interview" was some weak sauce on the part of King in defending it. In that sense, gingrich was right--why is CNN leading with it then? Yeah, John, why are you bringing it up like a little bitch if you dont' have anything more than "well, they're the ones who ran it..."

That why Gingrich gets away with fobbing off his complicity in his past transgressions as "the Main Stream Media with a vendetta". '???? Dude! The media wasn't the one having an affair with Marianne when you asked your sick wife for a divorce. They weren't the one in between Callista's thighs while you were married to Marianne---you were.

They aren't the one who made you do whatever it was you did to warrant an ethics investigation in the first place. You thought it was good policy to do what you did and you got thumped for it.' Don't be mad if it keeps coming up.

To put it in a Scalia context: "then dont' run for president if you don't want to discuss what is on the Congressional Record as to what you did". THAT is your truth, s0n.

God may forgive, but he's not registered to vote for president in any state in the union and if someone tried to register him, that would be illegal. Now. Back to us mortals who will decide your fate--us mortals who have a bit of an issue with you irreverent and indifferent attitude to breaching one of the backbones to your alleged "family values" society: the ability of grown man to hold fast to his vows. There should be some level of indignation from way more people that this man presume to aspire to be the leader of the free world when he's shown time and time again that he can't keep faithful to ANY vow he has ever taken in the past. Quite frankly he has done nothing to deserve to make this vow--this oath to the office of presidency-- the one that changes all things.

Why is someone who was run out of town on ethics charges--that goes directly to character--even in a race for the highest office in the country? WTF is that about?

the truth from who's perspective?

two people can view the exact same thing and still have different perspectives on outcome based upon the calculation done through the filter of their own life experiences.

Has the system of welfare helped most lower class individuals in Appalachia to ascend into the middle class? I mean,
I look their their state of affairs which never, ever seems to change.

The HS drop out rates across the nation:

Among minorities, only about 52 percent of Hispanic students and 56 percent of
African-American students will graduate in four years, compared with 78 percent of
white students.13

High school students from low-income families (the lowest 20 percent) were six times
more likely to drop out than students from higher income families. Ultimately, about one
half of all dropouts never receive a high school credential.14

Students with Disabilities Aged 14 and Older Who Dropped Out, by Race/Ethnicity
Race/Ethnicity Percent of Group who
Dropped Out
American Indian/Alaska Native 52.2%
Black 44.5%
Hispanic 43.5%
White 33.9%
Asian/Pacific Islander 28.0%

based on a cumulative 12-month count.

Simple, country folk can have as good of manners as a refined person who lives in the city. What you're
asking is why are they so vulgar and jaded now, since it seems they've gotten the "best of everything".

Perhaps they're sick of shit and don't give a good gotdamb who knows? Only way to know is to ask the people
whose life experience is this.

Also, people know a little differently now. It's way later in time and the veil has long been ripped from the face.
You're not going to see that display of innocence by and large--that's the nature of things and time wearing on.
People also don't do a whole lot of things like they used to way back when.

see what I mean by perspective? This is a class/caste issue, not a race issue.

btw--got any links-how did you arrive at your conclusions?
