Governor Romney represents himself as a dignified person and one with character and integrity during these debates that have been from the non-Republican press and media. They are supposed to be somewhat unbiased by the press has been toward the current President for 4 years without vetting through the normal process for our country. The President, I believe, would rather have Newt to run against, than a man such as Governor Romney. The vetting of Governor Romney has been going on for 4-5 years, not just the past 6-7 months. I heard someone discuss that Newt has been vetted by the people and the Republican Party and that they have accepted his indiscretions from the 1990s. I asked myself, "Have I been part of that vetting process?" I haven't been in an election process with Newt on the ballot. I don't believe a lot of Utahns accept Newt's indiscretions and would want him to be elected as President, whether Democrat of Republican. He was disciplined in January 1997 by the House for ethics accusations and following a poor Republican showing in 1998 congressional elections, he resigned the next day under pressure from his Republican colleagues. Not Newt

I know there are no comments but mine on this article. However, after being in the military for over 20 years, my wife is more independent than dependent from/on me. After the debate last night, she mentioned that if the Republican Party nominates Newt after his actions, words and display, she would vote for the worst President we have ever had in our day to stay away from a guy like Newt. I would hope the people of South Carolina vote with their hearts and not the words of a guy like Newt Gingrich who brags about his successes but doesn't tell that he resigned due to pressure from his colleagues in 1998 a day after the fall of the Republicans from power in the House. He destroyed the successes in 1994 due to his attitude. He thrives on power and we have seen this President do some of that but Newt would be at least 2 or three times worse since he is an insider and never left that environment, at least in his mind and body. People say he is smart but we need a person with integrity and character and Mitt Romney has that influence today
