I remember this one being very popular with the media back in 1995 when Newt Gingrich first became House Speaker and he was under constant assault by the media. Been wondering where she was this presidential cycle?
Newt Gingrich might be confident he’s got the votes to be the Republican presidential nominee, but he may have trouble convincing his own family to support him
The gay half-sister of the ex-House Speaker said Wednesday she’s going to stick with President Obama because of her sibling’s stance on same-sex marriage.
Gingrich-Jones, a gay rights activist at the Human Rights Campaign, said she and her half-brother are “mutually respectful” of each other, but she would “work really, really hard to make sure that President Obama is re-elected next year no matter who the Republican candidate is.”
Gingrich, who has surged ahead as a top-tier candidate, is known for his views against gay marriage.
“I believe that marriage is between a man and woman,” he told a crowd at Fort Dodge in Iowa in September. “It has been for all of recorded history.”
It’s not just this issue, but on pretty much any issue the media is going to brutalize Gingrich and make his 1995 anal exam seem like a walk in the park. They’ve got their marching orders: Destroy Gingrich at all costs.
We’re not allowed to mention Obama’s radical friends, but no stone will be left unturned in the media’s quest to re-anoint Obama.
Update: A commenter made a great point. Newt’s stepsister will be voting for Barack Obama, who’s also on record as being against gay marriage. Is she even aware of that?
