The Iowa Des Moines Register (largest news paper in Iowa) has now formally endorsed Romney. Big.

Romney:

- Valedictorian at BYU

- Baker's scholar at Harvard (go look it up)

- Master's degrees in business AND law

- enormously successful in private business, now worth between $200-$300 million (compare this to many of Obama's closest advisers who never had to turn a profit or go hungry)

- previous executive leadership experience as a state governor, including Massachusetts' Commander In Chief of state military forces

- put aside partisanship prejudices/trash-talk by successfully campaigning/winning the governor's seat as a Republican in a heavily Democrat-controlled state LONG before Scott Brown

- turned a loss into one of the few profit-earning Olympics (Salt Lake) in 2002

- turned Massachusetts' budget from red to black while governor

- volunteer service to community as a church leader for well over 10 years (Bishop and Stake President)

- would give ALL his Presidential salary ($1.6 million total) back to the American taxpayers if elected (yes, he's on record as committing to this)

- looks, talks and acts "Presidential"

- understands committment (never divorced)

- understands morality (never had an affair)

- understands family (5 kids)

- willing to let all of America see his birth/school records without a fight

Nope, nothing there that America needs.....

I am a conservative and a card-carrying Republican but I find it absolutely appaling that, according to the polls, the majority of Republicans are now supporting a person (Gingrich) who committed the exact SAME immoral offense (adultery) that Bill Clinton did, i.e., the Monica Lewinski scandal.

How is it that Republicans back in Clinton's days chastised Clinton for the episode with Monica Lewinsky (remember, we impeached him in the House) but apparently give Gingrich a pass for the SAME offense? Have the morals of the average Republican today stooped so low that we are afraid to call "wrong" just what it is, "wrong"?

Come on, my fellow Americans, stand up and toe the line.

If Gingrich broke his committment to his wives (plural) and cheated on them BOTH why would you think that Gingrich would keep any committment to you, a person he's never even met?

Can Gingrich be forgiven?

Absolutely!

Can Gingrich be trusted now?

Hmmmm....doubtful, since the offenses are so great I sincerely doubt there are enough years left in his life to restore that level of trust.

Sorry, so far it's Romney for me.

Romney is superior when it comes to economics but is weak on the 2nd Amendment. He appears to be the Republican to beat and understands that the working man deserves to have some money left in his pocket to spend after he gets done paying his fair share of taxes. He'd get my vote.
