Presidential wannabe Newt Gingrich tried to pull that off in an interview with CBN's David Brody where Gingrich tried to spin his "past weaknesses" as making him more "human" than everyone's favorite Republican Robot, Mitt Romney.
What a really weird way to spin his situation and attack his opponent! I have not heard Gingrich publicly acknowledge what he has done as wrong, but he does admit that he did them. He is basically saying that Romney is too perfect and people can identify with him better because Gingrich is more human. I think its important to remember that each one of us are sinners who fall short of God's standards - no one is perfect. We should acknowledge our errors and move on, but not glory in them let alone attack another because they have not done what you have done! Romney is just a man and sinner like all of us. There is no need to attack him for that.If the President of the United States must be sinless - no one could be elected.
