VIDEO- Newt Gingrich to gay man: Vote for Obama

Realistically, in 2012, the presidential election comes down to a race between President Obama and a Republican; no candidate from any other party has the remotest chance of winning. And the thought of a Willard Romney or Newton Leroy Gingrich in the White House, and their insanely dangerous ideas, their bigotry, their Supreme Court picks, and their attitude toward women, is simply not an option.

That is why, despite my frequent frustration, and even anger, with the president, he'll get my vote.  A protest vote, or a "principled" vote as some have suggested, is understandable, but is also tantamount to a vote for the GOP, and at least this time around, I cant' go there. And not voting isn't an option, ever.

President Obama has accomplished many wonderfully positive things, and has supported others that bewilder me. But one thing he would never do is make a child feel like a leper for having gay parents, or say something like Newt said in this video.

As for Newt, my new friend Jesse LaGreca just tweeted the following:

BWAHAHAHA! @NewtGingrichPAC is following me on twitter! #LOL the most ethically challenged POTUS candidate in my life, cruel & stupid #p2

Ironic, I demand campaign finance reform and then I get followed by @NewtGingrichPAC on twitter. We are blessed with idiots for enemies #ows

    What does "free country" have to do with anything? Sure, we love having you as a reader/watcher, but not as an insulter. That can get a Commenter banned. See our guidelines.

    I enjoy some of your videos, for sure.  Free country, no?

    And yet you visit us again just to drop an insult because we happen to disagree. How classy of you.

    Sigh.  From a Democratic Shill site such as this, I would expect no less.

    Oh please, be realistic. A third party can't win.

    If it weren't for the Supreme Court, I might feel like doing the protest vote thing, but a third party is lacking organization and money that Rove and his corporate buddies would have a field day with.

    As long as folks like you keep saying a third party has no chance, it will self fulfill.  As I've said to so many others - Do you have a rock bottom, or will you just take anything he dishes out?
