I will admit, my leanings were (still are) toward Ron Paul and his
constitutional republican platform, but he cannot win a presidential election
when fighting to garner support from an uneducated, emotionally driven, easily
influenced voter base. (This, I believe, is the majority that got sucked into
the "change we can believe in" crowd that hopefully is now trying to
correct mistakes of the past.That said, the time has come to see
Mitt Romney as the viable candidate that he truly has become. Good or bad, right
or wrong, now that he established himself as the frontrunner, we must ask a
serious question. Is he a confident, successful businessman with a capacity to
rally the troops and take action in a very presidential way; a man that can
visualize our domestic and global economic catastrophic state as a business
opportunity; a chance to restore America as a global leader in industry and a
moral compass for other nations to follow? We have obviously lost
our edge due to presidents past. Can our present president right this ship
without a rudder? Is Romney the new captain with a state of the art vessel? Our
vote may dictate the answer.
Gingrich and Sanstorum will fold on April 24th.
I'm relieved to hear Gingrich is in politics for more than just himself.
Pretty classy thing to state, and hopefully it means the party can heal and come
together under Romney. This ability to hit one another as hard and relentlessly
as we can, and then come together afterwards and set aside differences and show
a united front, is one of the reasons The United States of America is the
greatest country in the world.
Winning the debate with President Obama isn't what's it important. It
comes down to this: do you believe if elected, that President Obama's
vision will make our economy and our nation stronger, more prosperous, a true
beacon in the world? If not, vote for the other guy. We don't need debates
to define this fundamental question.
Gingrich may be able to say he can win a debate with Obama but his personality
will not make him a leader. Hopefully, Santorum will see the light and stop his
attacking the potential candidate when Santorum has no chance to carry out a
non-organized campaign from here on out. Also, Gingrich kicked out his advisers
almost a year ago so he could spend money for his wife's jewelry. Our
country can't afford that kind of leadership as being President is a
24/7/365 job for 4 years, non-stop. Debates don't take that much time or
Gildas LOGAN, UTWhy would there be a brokered convention when Romney
will have already sawn up the nomination prior to the convention?
We may , providentially, be headed for a "brokered convention" and an
"all talents" administration. That's the most optimistic way of
looking at it. It has happened in other historic crisis situations here or
elsewhere. I'm just hoping for the best.
Newt really talked well this time. He has given his reason for staying in and I
think it a decent reason for him. It won't effect the outcome and no voter
is going to be confused on who they should pick. If Santorum had a similar
reason that would make sense. Ron Paul is obviously staying in hoping to get his
message out to more people. Now, what is Santorum up to?
Gingrich will campaign for Romney?Wonderful.
