It is sad that they take the least relevant path to discredit his candidacy. One would think that his flip-flopping on abortion or his outright dishonest campaign ad that takes a quote from President Obama out of context would be enough to morally discredit him. This makes the Christian right seem more interested in religious bigotry than actual values.
After taking the blame for the government shutdown in the 90's that helped keep Clinton in office, Gingrich is trying to make a comeback. The moral right is once again looking away from indiscretions they would point at if he were with the opposing party. He had 84 ethics charges filed against him, resulting in $300,000 in sanctions. He tried to force the courts to dismiss complaints against him, violated federal tax law, and lied to the ethics panel.
In an election filled with gaffs, Rick Perry is king. Coming across as G.W. Bush on steroids, he will be unelectable to anyone who remembers life during the disastrous eight years with our last president from Texas. His morals are questionable, as the nation looks into the money making scheme embracing a very grey area favoring potential corporate and self-interests over the interests of the voters who elected him.
Perry's moral indiscretions include some shady property transactions he has allegedly made behind closed doors. He allegedly accepted campaign donations from the manufacturer of the HPV vaccine after supporting laws making it mandatory for young girls. Modern Republicans have turned this into an issue questioning the morality of the government protecting citizens from preventable diseases, when there seem to be other, more financial benefits to this decision.
There have been unsubstantiated rumors of infidelity, and Perry is suspected of playing dirty by raising the Mormon issue with Romney and opening the can of worms on Cain's sex scandals. While Perry may be seen as a gaff machine, his morals should be examined carefully by the Christian right that prefer this man over "Mormon Mitt."
Pizza man and 9-9-9 pusher, Cain seems to has numerous sex scandal skeletons in his closet. How the Conservative Christians on the right can support a man with so many sexual harassment charges after using Bill Clinton's indiscretions as an excuse to attempt impeachment is a mystery.
An early frontrunner that burned bright and then out as quickly as a flare, Bachmann may not be in the best state of mind to run the country. Not only does she lack a basic knowledge of American history, she seeks to rewrite history, rather than take the moral high ground and just admit she made a mistake.
