    Dr. Sowell makes a lot of sense as usual.

    It makes sense to me. I will be voting for a leader for a very serious time in our history. His personal life has nothing to do with his leadership skills. This country needs leadership and he has proven it over and over.

    I think Romney can help on the economic front, but we are dealing with world problems now as well. Gingrich has the background in both.

    Yep.. all the dems can do is run a smear campaign. They can't run on Obama's record. All one has to do is look at what Newt accomplished as speaker to know how he will govern. His record speaks for itself.

    That's the point. Newt's record will sink him during the next three months.

    Obama's campaign manager David Axelrod stated if Gingrich wins the nomination they will NOT go after him on his personal life.

    So again-it's this FEAR coming from the GOP establishment of nominating a real conservative. For some reason they believe Gingrich would chase off independents. Yet--independents are standing in the same unemployment line as the rest of us.

    Furthermore--I think Romney's stance on illegal immigration scares more independents--and especially Latino's away.

    So beats me--what they're so worried about with Newt Gingrich?

    Yeah--balancing the federal budget for 4 years in a row--and leaving office with a projected surplus budget--is scarier than s....t.--:badgrin:

    Yeah Gingrich has a 96-97% history record of being conservative. Again--it's just the fear from establishment republicans of nominating a true conservative--that's why we got John McCain in 2008--a moderate--and someone who was "supposed" to be able to attract independents--LOL That's what this is all about with Romney too. But--I think with Romney's stance on immigration--he will scare off more independents and Latino's than Gingrich ever would.
