    When Cain was in the race, he said the very most important reasons for his election was his position as a Washington outsider, and his business skills to run the country like a successful corporation. Now that he's out, I guess those reasons aren't so important any more, since he has chosen to back the ultimate Washington insider with other experience as a professor and lobbyist, instead of the only other Washington outsider with business experience.

    In 2007, Santorum threw his endorsement to Romney, but now Romney - with no changed circumstances - is an untrustworthy conservative of convenience who's unfit to win the GOP nomination.

    I like Romney better than the rest, but I must admit that he also engages in pretty standard old-style politics in many instances. They all do.

    When Huntsman said there's a trust deficit in this country regarding politicians, this is what he was talking about.

    Someday the GOP will look back and laugh about all this...I hope. (I'm actually not holding my breath.) Despite what the rank and file, obedient Democratic party voter wants us to believe, Mitt Romney is an honest person who pays his taxes. He has a MUCH better resume than anyone running against him. And despite the fact that Obama has already had four years experience as president, I still think Romney is, by far, more qualified to lead the country. Romney isn't the perfect candidate, but he is a LOT closer than anyone else in either party.

    Another circus act from the clowns in the GOP. Maybe Newt will revive the 9 9 9 plan. It really doesnt matter. OBAMA 2012

    Mr. Cain's true nature comes out. I wonder how his wife is accepting his union with Newt? Our nation needs people of principle for our country and not for themselves. These men, not leaders, have thought of themselves quite highly and pat themselves on the back, whether highwater or not. There are some in Utah and in the United States of America that have limited trust. They distrust others because they probably don't tell the truth themselves and believe everyone else is doing something as they are. Limited trust is not beneficial and more are potentially getting to that point because of our problems in the United States of America. We say it is the economy that has faltered. It is actually people that didn't have integrity and honesty as part of their lives. It is further reaching than economy. They were dishonest and took advantage of people that were buying and selling homes, buying and selling cars, etc. These people infiltrated the Wall Streets and Federal Reserve and no one was monitoring their corporations and agencies because they were hiding their parts from others. In 2007 when the markets started eroding, where was the Treasury and Federal Reserve?

    But if Cain endorsed Romney, you folks commenting would be lauding him, right?

    Thats it? I thought his endorsement was going to be some kind of extravaganza. No earthquake, no volcano eruption? I am disappointed in Cain. He was a conservative though, unlike Gingrich.

    Let's see: one adulterer endorses another adulterer. And this represents "Republican Family Values"? Reminds one of Godfather II, when Michael gives the kiss of death to Fredo. Bye-bye, Newt!

    To: Pagan, Salt Lake City, UT - What is it about a Swiss bank account? This is a non-issue. You need to understand investments and business in general. Romney has done everything within the law. Now Cain endorses Newt. Cain has since lost all credibility and dropped out of the race. Do you really want an endorsement from someone like this. If I am a conservative with a faith background, these two are the last on my ballot. Tell me the voters are smarter than this. The longer this race goes on, the more ridiculous it gets. I can't thell who is dumber, the candidates or the voters. Someone or something needs to rescue the American public from this mess and it's not Obama and does not appear to be the Republicans.

    The guy accused of fidelity problems endorses the guy with confirmed fidelity problems? Great.

    Birds of a feather , flock together.

    Cain and Gingrich each have their "affair" issues.
