    RE: marxist, many would agree that it would be best if Romney were to be above board and honest and run as a Mormon independent. It could open the door to new political views and variety of candidates and break the D & R monopoly, perhaps even lead to the good fortune of a parliamentary system.

    "Romney would be better served running as an independent and stop kowtowing to the Southern religious right."

    Yeah but he'll just run a nice campaign season beating the candidates he should while losing to the top tier ones; in the end the Southern Bible Conference candidates will play for the championship.

    (sorry, had to do it).

    Romney is a stinken' Republican capitalist as far as I'm concerned. But if I were to give him some advice it would be to completely "come clean" about his Mormonism. He needs to quit trying to convince the GOP right that he's not really a Mormon partisan. Like most Mormons, Mormonism largely defines Romney, both his liabilities and his strengths which are considerable. His LDS church service is important and the electorate needs to know it. Besides, all of the other GOP candidates are disasters waiting to happen in the presidency.

    "up for grabs, Gingrich making big play", If Gingrich reads the headlines he might think it is time to cheat on his wife...again.

    Romney would be better served running as an independent and stop kowtowing to the Southern religious right.

    I hope some of my fellow LDS wake up and see that the gaining support for a Washington insider, cheated on 2 wives while one had cancer and left the House in disgrace is all about the evangelical far right that has taken over the Republican party. But of course conservatives Mormons will just vote R without a thought, again.

    The Republican party's view of Mormons clearly reflects with Newt. Mormons are the dutiful wife (voters) and are always there for the husband (voting automatically R) while being cheated on by Newt. They cheat because they know you'll never leave them.

    Gingrich is the "unRomney." Get used to it. The Christian right of the GOP will not accept Romney. I wish this could cause Mormons to re-think some of their cherished political views. Time will tell. Mabye LDS could even revert to their radical socialist past, as historian Bushman has speculated.

    I don't see how anyone could support either Gingrich or Romney. Neither of them can be trusted, and neither of them would be good for the United States. No thanks.
