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: focused primarly on beating Romney.

Romney: focused on beating Obama.

Gingrich: worked for Freddie Mac (which CLEARLY helped bring about the Great Recession).

Romney: worked for Bain (Staples, Domino's, Sports Authority, etc) which helped create over 110,00 jobs.

Gingrich: flash.

Romney: substance.
