Once a Cheater . . Always a Cheater

January 20, 2012 - Joselyn King
Based on his response to the opening question at this week's Republican presidential debate, I guess it's now the media's fault that Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was a lying, cheating two-timing husband.

Moderator John King dared pose a question to Gingrich about Gingrich's ex-wife's comments that he had once asked her for an "open marriage."

Gingrich took umbrage,and blamed the media for making an issue of his infidelity.

NEWS FLASH -- Blaming the media is what a politician does when he or she has no answer for past bad behavior, other than to acknowledge it.

And yes, Gingrich has admitted to his infidelities.

More importantly, it is important for the public to know about his indiscretions.

I've said it before, and it bears repeating. The person who cheats on their spout will cheat on anyone -- or the country they've sworn under oath to lead.

Don't you think he or other cheaters before him maybe paid somebody to cover for him? Granted a favor to someone to keep them quiet? Given a job to their "miss-tress" or "mr.-tress?"

In the end, their indiscretions always cost taxpayers money, and is that really the behavior we want out of a president?
