Mitt Romney contrasts his marital record with new GOP frontrunner Newt Gingrich in Romney

CBS

Facing perhaps his most formidable challenge yet in former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney is getting personal in his latest campaign ad.

Taking a blatant swipe at Gingrich's shaky marital history, the former Massachusetts governor has unveiled a new ad highlighting the fact that he has been married to his wife for 42 years.

Gingrich cheated on his second wife with his current wife, Calista, in the 90s, while simultaneously cheerleading the Bill Clinton impeachment over Clinton's affair with intern Monica Lewinsky.

    No one will "change" anything. The New World Order rules. My vote goes to Ron Paul but he would conveniently die of "old age" if he got the job.

    They are both pathetic humans, regardless of their personal lives. A cultist and a philanderer.... and worse.... professional politicians. Anyone who will vote based on the candidates' personal lives is an idiot and why we have such a detestable political environment. I'd rather vote in Charles Manson than ANY of these idiots- at least we know he is a sociopathic scumbag. If you wrap a turd in pretty paper, it's still a turd.

    Putting the marital issue aside, America cannot afford for Gingrich to win the nomination. While we marched quietly and steadily on the road to the New World Order under both Bushs and Bill Clinton, it has been a stampede under Obama. Newt is a NWO globalist and worked his entire time in Congress towards that goal. If elected as POTUS, he will continue business as usual, just quiet things down at a slower pace. I don't believe the poll numbers for a second. With every other statistic being manipulated in and out of government these days, I have no faith what-so-ever in polls, not even the standard bearer, Rasmussen numbers. Obama HAS to go, but Gingrich is not the answer, nor is Romney. Bachmann and/or Paul are the only two who would bring REAL "change".

    Romny couldn't get divorced. He'd be thrown out of the cult.

    Awesome...only 11 more months of sniping back and forth. You can be married to the same person for 42 years and still have cheated on them. I mean, really? So freakin' what? Last time I checked Gingrich was human and humans do make mistakes. Romney can't be Mr. Perfect himself. I'm sure there are things he's done of which he's not so proud. People need to remember: stones and glass houses rarely go together.

      Did you not read the story? Newt was the one living in a glass house and throwing stones.
