With Gingrich's baggage, his personality volatility, his efforts to win at all costs (sitting on the couch with Pelosi was simply bad judgement...he was trying to position himself as a moderate, which is what many candidates do to win elections, but his moment with Pelosi was beyond comprehension for a conservative), his hypocrisy and moral failings with his family, his turbulent history, his self-enrichment at the expense of the American taxpayer (taking loads of money from Fannie Mae) make it impossible for me to support Newt. If he were the Republican nominee I would probably write in another candidate.

Of course, I would prefer anybody over Obama.

The Great Contradiction.

People complain about the 'anyone but Romney' mentality...

and the go RIGHT back and say 'anyone but Obama.'

One of the reasons our goverment is not working is that people have ZERO room for compromise and zero room for negotiation.

At least some don't complain about it....before doing the exact same thing, to others.

Pagan,

I didn't directly say anything about Romney, and did not complain about an "Anything but Romney" I am not sure where you are coming from.

And you are correct, I misspoke. I would take any REPUBLICAN over Obama. This is simply a reflection that in my opinion Obama is the last man I would want to serve a 2nd term as president.

There are some Democrats that I would vote for before I would cast a vote for Newt Gingrich.
