Conservatives and Their Marriage, I'm shocked!

Ronald Reagan - divorced the mother of two of his children to marry Nancy Reagan who bore him a daughter only 7 months after the marriage.
Bob Dole - divorced the mother of his child, who had nursed him through the long recovery from his war wounds.
Newt Gingrich - divorced his wife who was dying of cancer.
Dick Armey - House Majority Leader - divorced
Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas - divorced
Gov. John Engler of Michigan - divorced
Gov. Pete Wilson of California - divorced
George Will - divorced
Sen. Lauch Faircloth - divorced
Rush Limbaugh - Rush and his current wife Marta have six marriages and four divorces between them.
Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia - Barr, not yet 50 years old, has been married three times. Barr had the audacity to author and push the "Defense of Marriage Act." The current joke making the rounds on Capitol Hill is "Bob Barr, WHICH marriage are you defending?"
Sen. Alfonse D'Amato of New York - divorced
Sen. John Warner of Virginia - divorced (once married to Liz Taylor)
Gov. George Allen of Virginia - divorced
Henry Kissinger - divorced
Rep. Helen Chenoweth of Idaho - divorced
Sen. John McCain of Arizona - divorced
Rep. John Kasich of Ohio - divorced
Rep. Susan Molinari of New York (2000 Republican National Convention Keynote Speaker) - divorced


---------------------------

and these are the same Republicans who jumped on the Clintons. For shame

Basically, my opinion is that almost ALL politicians are hypocritical and people should realize this.

Wow...it's like a proven fact that more than 50% of all marriages end in divorce anyways.

Re: Conservatives and Their Marriage, I'm shocked!

Must be an old list...Rush Limbaugh is now divorced and dating a bitch from CNN I believe...

I don't understand your point you're trying to prove anyway. Like D-Man said, it's a natural that marriages aren't gonna work out. Hell, I'd think the percentage of marriage ending in divorce would be even higher than 50%.


The good ol' days.

Re: Conservatives and Their Marriage, I'm shocked!

That's a small list considering the amount of politicians. If that's it I'd give them credit.

Besides, how do you know if their wives didn't divorce them? Divorce isn't a "joint" decision, you know.

I think the point is politicians are supposed to set an example. I'm not into US politics but I assume these people crap on about family values which really is the pot calling the kettle black when you look at their own private lives.

Is divorce really a bad thing for a family?

If you think about it, divorce can benefit the kids, provided that the household is actually arguing a lot and shit. Or if the parents are both rich.

ooo

Re: Conservatives and Their Marriage, I'm shocked!

No it can be a good thing. My parents are divorced, and believe me it is a good thing. However, if my dad started preaching family values to me I would take absolutely no notice as he has no idea what family values are. The role of politicians is to be a leader, hypocrisy is not going to get people to follow their leader. If a politician is so hypocritical about something so trivial, they aren't worth voting for in my book.

Families are trivial?

You can forget that golddigger John Kerry war hero (flip flop) who married to to another golddigger Tersea. John married her for the money.
