New Standard For Judging Marital Infidelity Of GOP Presidential Candidates

Important news flash here. We've all known for some time that when it comes to marital infidelity, Republicans are held to a much higher standard than Democrats but this latest standard raises the bar a big notch. The latest headline in the National Enquirer blares, "Mitt Romney Love Triangle Shocker!". Oh, my. Mitt is cheating on his wife? No. Mitt's wife is cheating on him? No. Then what? It seems Mitt's wife committed the immortal sin of dating another man before the two tied the knot.

Ann’s two-timing puts her “in the middle of a ‘cheating’ scandal,” a top political source told The ENQUIRER. “While this happened long ago, it still be­comes an issue for a candidate running for the White House. Because Mitt has made an issue of the solidness of his marriage, any informa­tion that shows Ann ‘cheated’ could be used by his political enemies.”
Yeah, she was in college and he was in France doing missionary work. She tells him she has started dating another man after she sort of told him she would marry him one day. He becomes upset and tries to woo her affections back by sending her love letters. He succeeds. The two are married, have five sons together and are still married forty-two years later. Sounds like a big time cheating scandal to me. NOT. And what's Barack Obama's excuse for seeking out gay men for anonymous sex in Chicago's gay bathhouses and the backseat of limos during his marriage to Michelle? Nah, can't report on that. Everyone is suppose to know that Barry and Michelle have the picture perfect marriage. It's a fairy tale just like Bill Clinton said four years ago, but it's the nearest the American people are going to get to the truth when it comes to the mysterious life of Barack Obama/a/ka/Barry Soetoro,/a/k/a Bari Shabazz.

First of all, you have to realize this is a tabloid magazine, not a mainstream press. No legit news agency would run this story.

Second of all, Republicans should be held to a higher standard because they're the ones preaching about the strength of their marriages and how awful fags are, so when they're found shagging another woman or man, it's blatant hypocrisy.

Except the National Enquirer has broken virtually every sex scandal inolving presidential candidates for the past few decades going back to Gary Hart that eventually gained currency in the mainstream news media. It's blatant hypocrisy for Obama to pretend to be a happily-married man while engaging in sex with men on the down low.
