GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich says he should be judged on the present and not the past. This is probably because his past involves so many corrupt financial dealings and unethical business deals, and trophy-wife trade-ins, plus the hypocrisy of criticizing Bill Clinton for having an affair with an intern, while Gingrich himself was having an affair with a congressional staff member, and later claiming it was due to his passionate love for his country that he cheated on his wife and made himself a public political jerk-wad.
Fox News personality Mike Huckabee announced he will not seek the 2012 presidential candidacy for the Republican Party. “All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” Huckabee, who was considered the GOP frontrunner in several Fox News polls, said on his Fox News Channel show. His heart problems probably include taking-on GOP poster-boy Newt Gingrich, President Obama’s popularity since killing Osama bin Laden, and the usual ephemeral life-span of snowballs in Hell.
Ron Paul immediately announced he will run for the third losing time.
