Gingrich: admitted REPEAT adulterer (capable of being forgiven but not able to rebuild the required trust soon enough)

Romney: faithful to his wife

Gingrich: largely a career politician

Romney: NOT a career politician (and, no, running for office repeatedly does not make you a politician. Think about it: if you run and lose do you have the authority to make the laws, lead, govern, etc? No.)

Gingrich: censured and 'fired' by his own political peers (federal House of Representatives)

Romney: never censured or fired by his own political peers (Massachusetts state House of Representatives, etc)

Gingrich: prone to shoot his mouth off and later regret it

Romney: measured, tempered and even-keeled

Gingrich: self-made millionaire 'guilty' of practicing capitalism like Romney but hypocritically doesn't decry his own pursuit of wealth

Romney: self-made multi-millionaire and relatively quiet about it (he allows other to 'the pursuit of happiness' as they see fit)

Gingrich: focusing primarly on beating Romney

Romney: focusing on beating Obama

Gingrich: flash and style

Romney: substance

These are undeniable facts, especially when it comes to character.

The fact that this is even in contention shows how far America has fallen from the God who founded us.

Here's what Romney should do:

Release his taxes. 12 years of them. And then....

he should give away all his money to the government with the stipulation that it go directly to paying off the federal deficit.

Think about it...

he should keep his houses, his cars and property but all the money he has in bank accounts, etc, he should give it away.

1st, this would shut up EVERY "Romney's just a selfish, thieving rich guy" critic, including Gingrich and the guy in the Whitehouse. Yes, even the delusional ows protestors.

And, 2nd, this would shut up EVERY "Romney's just a selfish, thieving rich guy" critic.

See my point?

Romney will be fine financially even if he did this.

First, and most importantly, Romney knows how to WORK. He could start with nothing and before too long he'd be financially successful again.

Second, he'd still have his homes and could sell just one of them and live comfortably for the rest of his life.

Third, with a book on the 2012 campaign and speaking/consulting fees he'd be a millionaire again in no time.

How I'd LOVE to see him do this and shut up EVERY critic.
