Perry’s Out

Rick Perry has dropped out of the Presidential race and has endorsed Newt Gingrich. From Fox News.

Rick Perry dropped out of the presidential race Thursday and endorsed Newt Gingrich, a move that comes just two days before the South Carolina Republican primary.

The Texas governor, saying he will return to his state “with pride,” announced in South Carolina that “there is no viable path forward for me in this 2012 campaign.”

After surging to the front of the GOP field upon entering the race last summer, Perry struggled to sustain that support and endured disappointing finishes in the leadoff Iowa and New Hampshire contests. He said Thursday he entered the race with a “sense of calling,” but realizes “when it’s time to make a strategic retreat.”

I’m surprised he has lasted this long. Meanwhile Gingrich has been having troubles of his own, namely his ex-wife Marrianne giving an interview on ABC news.

Newt Gingrich lacks the moral character to serve as President, his second ex-wife Marianne told ABC News, saying his campaign positions on the sanctity of marriage and the importance of family values do not square with what she saw during their 18 years of marriage.

In her first television interview since the 1999 divorce, to be broadcast tonight on Nightline, Marianne Gingrich, a self-described conservative Republican, said she is coming forward now so voters can know what she knows about Gingrich.

In her most provocative comments, the ex-Mrs. Gingrich said Newt sought an “open marriage” arrangement so he could have a mistress and a wife.

She said when Gingrich admitted to a six-year affair with a Congressional aide, he asked her if she would share him with the other woman, Callista, who is now married to Gingrich.

I guess the moral is that if you want to run for president, you shouldn’t ask your wife for an “open” marriage. Newt is supposed to be really smart, but I doubt many married men are foolish enough to suggest something like that to their wives.

One Response to “Perry’s Out”

    I doubt Gingrich is that foolish, either. Ever notice how all these things only seem to come out at election time? First Cain was accused of sexual assault by numerous women (who probably all vote Democrat), and now this. The odds of either of these things being true are not that high, and the odds of both of them being true are slim to nil. Numbers don’t lie.
