    BTW, it's NOT that Gingrich can't be, or shouldn't be, forgiven for his repeated adulteries. He can be and should be forgiven.

    The problem is there simply isn't enough time to restore the required level of trust between himself and the average American between now and November 2012. The average American doesn't know Newt on an intimate/personal basis, has never met him, will never meet him so how is Gingrich supposed to restore the kind of trust a REAL leader needs to have among his followers?

    Think about it: if YOUR spouse cheated on you multiple times, you could forgive them but how long would it take you to full trust them again? See what I mean?

    - admitted MULTIPLE adulterer

    - lied about having "close friends" who volunteered to stand by his claim that he didn't ask his second wife for an open marriage (CNN later confrimed this. Yes, google it).

    - was a lobbyist for Freddie Mac (paid Newt $1.6M), which we ALL know was a huge, huge part of the economic meltdown in 2008

    - lied (and still lying) about merely being a "historian" for Freddie Mac who supposedly tried to tell Freddie Mac it was immoral/dangerous to give out mortgages to those who couldn't repay them (if this were true Newt would have instantly flooded the media with historical proof (previous e-mails, letters, memos, PowerPoint presentations, phone call records, etc) that he tried to warn Freddie Mac

    - officially reprimanded by Congress (paid $300,000 in fees to Congress for the investigation) for unethical behavior while Speaker of the House; the ONLY one to be reprimanded in history

    - lying about being Reagan's "lieutenant/right hand man" in the Reagan revolution (so why did Reagan mention Newt only ONCE in his autobiography?....and that remark was mostly negative

    - lies about being a Washington "outsider" (how can a multiple-elected congressman and Speaker of the House be an "outsder"?)

    - claims to be conservative but attacks the conservative principle that a person should be able to keep the wealth they earn by relentlessly falsely repeating the claim that Romney was merely a corporate raider while at Bain (ever hear of Staples? Sports Authority? Donino's Pizza?)

    - says that even though we're in debt up to our eyeballs ($15+ trillion and counting) that we should establish American colonies on the moon

    People: these are not merely "exaggerations", these are all FACTS. Do some research and see for yourself.

    Romney Eyes Campaign Stop in Dunedin Florida

    Romney 2012

    The Chamber of Commerce is asking merchants to be prepared for large crowds on Monday, after a heads up from city officials that a Republican presidential primary candidate is planning a campaign stop in Dunedin.

    The GOP presidential primary buzz may be hitting close to home on Monday.

    Dunedin Chamber of Commerce members received an email late Friday from its president that a Republican primary candidate may be planning a campaign stop in Pioneer Park on Monday afternoon.

    Mitt Romney's campaign rented the space for a possible public appearance Monday (Jan. 30) at 2 p.m., according to an email blast from Lynn Wargo, chamber president, to members. Wargo wrote that she passed the information along to merchants at the behest of City Manager Rob DiSpirito, who wanted downtown merchants to be prepared for large crowds that day.

    "Expect a lot of people in the downtown area," Wargo wrote.

    Romney's official website did not list Dunedin among his planned visits in Florida as of Friday at 8:32 p.m.

    My views.

    Romney's campaign staff rented the park for his last rally in Florida before republicans across the state head to the GOP primary polls Tuesday.

    So far, polls have the former governor of Massachusetts ahead of the other candidates: Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul.

    Here's what's to know if you go or even if you don't:

    TIME: 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., according Romney's campaign website.

    ROAD CLOSURES (beginning midnight through Monday afternoon, according to the City of Dunedin):

    Main Street (from Highland Avenue to the Pinellas Trail)

    Douglas Avenue (from Wood Street to Monroe Street)

    Expect heavy traffic on surrounding streets (especially Skinner and Bayshore boulevards and Edgewater Drive).

    COST: The rally is free and open to the public.

    PATCH COVERAGE: Dunedin Patch will be tweeting from the rally. We'll let you know when we start, and keep you up-to-date throughout the day.

    SUGGESTED PARKING: Dunedin Chamber of Commerce issued a heads-up to merchants late Friday to expect large crowds. If you arrive early (why not do lunch downtown beforehand?), you may be able to park in the public lot on Highland Avenue behind Paris Hair or on Douglas Ave.

    Romney 2012


    Romney returned to the Republican primary forefront by aggressively returning Newt Gingrich's fire and by presenting himself as a Washington outsider. Gingrich said Romney is "pretending he's somebody he's not." What one is "TRUE"?. How can we get Romney elected?. Billionaire financier George Soros likes Mitt Romney, and is telling European liberals not to worry. He says of Obama and Romney "there isn't all that much difference" between them. Herman Cain: Gingrich Offers Big Difference with Obama, Romney Doesn't. Romney had been a lifelong independent before he decided to run for Ted Kennedy's Senate seat in Massachusetts in 1994. The Deseret News in Utah reported that Romney's 2002 campaign for governor in Massachusetts "features an endorsement from a self-described liberal Democrat Salt Lake Mayor Rocky Anderson." Giuliani concluded that Romney is a "man that will say anything to become president of the United States." Pro-choice, pro-life. And pro-choice because somebody, a close friend, died, and he became pro-choice because this woman died of an abortion. Then he figures out there are embryos and he changes.

    Polls open here tomorrow from 7 AM to 7 PM.

    My views.

    If Newt Gingrich didn't want Romney carpet bombing Florida he should have concentrated on his own campaign and not Romney's. What Romney is doing to Gingrich today he'll be doing to Obama after he gets the Republican nomination.
