I know so many of you like Newt. I don't dislike him, but I Really, Really want family values back and I think that Romney is the one to do that. I also believe he is the one to win over Obama.

Lori,

We all have our favorites, but keep in mind that family values are extremely overrated.  If you found out that Hitler, Stalin, and Lenin were loving fathers and great husbands, would that in anyway change what they did?  If Saddam Hussein's son or Bin Ladin's son said, "I had the best dad in the world", would that make them any less the monsters they were?

Of course not.

We get caught up in family values and ignore what these politicians have in store for the rest of us.  Romney might seem like a good dad who married his high school sweetheart (or whatever the story is), but I have a problem with the fact that he is comfortable with how much the federal government takes from us in taxes.  So, he can be a nice guy all he wants, but if he thinks taking up to 35% in taxes out of individual income is justifiable or 25% in taxes out of business income is justifiable, he's wrong.  That he's still making comments about "the rich" or "the middle class" shows that he's already fallen into the class warfare trap and isn't going to be much different than Obama (he'll be slightly better, and I'll support Mitt if he wins, but from an economic standpoint there's just not much difference between the two).

What I like about Newt is he has spelled out 4-5 things he will do Day1 as President that make great sense. Romney's proposals are typical of Washington and things won't change much if he wins. We need major change not just more of the same.

He may be the candidate for the Republican Party and may also be the only Candidate that can beat 0bama. If this is so, he may have my vote. 0bama gets a 2nd term we're all in for it big time including those who vote for a living.

Steve,  I too will vote for Romney if he wins, but assuming he is the only one that can beat Obama is incorrect.  First off, every decision Obama makes is driven by the desire to raise taxes.  Obama wants to impose his misguided notion of social justice through high taxes on people he arbitrarily classifies as rich.  Obama wants to frame the theme of his reelection as, "Since we're such a rich country, shouldn't we help those that need it?".  But as you know, this question is a farce!  Of course we should help those that need it!  The real question is, "What is the most effective way to help those that need it?"  When the question is posed correctly, you see that "higher taxes and more government" is not the answer.  "Shared responsibility" becomes a socialist phrase when it is enforced by the government through high taxes.  So, with that understood, how can Romney be the only candidate to beat Obama?  He proposes the same taxes as Obama!  He says the same nonsense about helping one type of people (the so called "middle class") and not others.  It's sheer stupidity.  Romney's words indicate he has very little understanding about how jobs are created at a large, dynamic level.  Romney's words indicate he has very little understanding about the negative effects of progressively high tax rates.  Romney's words indicate he has very little understanding that lower taxes FOR EVERYONE is the way to create the most jobs. 

Again, I'd vote for him against Obama, but his tax policy is proof he knows nothing about Friedman, Hayek, Von Mises.  Nothing.  There's a reason why former Reagan economic advisor Art Laffer, wrote this the other day:

Obviously people need to start paying attention to the issues, in particular, taxes.

Thanks everyone for your comments and feedback. It is all very much appreciated. It is tough, when you come down to it, we don't really know anyone but ourselves.

I'm having a hard time understanding why CO doesn't have a primary. I am getting involved in the caucuses, but to be honest I'm pretty confused still. Just wanting my small voice to be heard.

As you say we really don't know these people except for the facade they put up. Newt has put up a list of items he will do day 1 and says he will sign it so he can be held accountable. That is great. But he was not saying that before he lost Florida. Just like Perry started to say a lot of good things that appeal to conservatives but after he fell in the polls. Makes you wonder. Romney's plan is milk toast.

Jon, respectfully, have you been paying attention?  Newt's not perfect (no one is), but Newt has been saying these things well before Florida.

Repeal Obamacare, repeal Dodd-Frank and repeal Sarbanes-Oxley.  You're telling me NOW is the first time you're hearing that?  He was saying these things well before Iowa!

Go to newt.org, videos of all debates and interviews are there.  You can see he's been saying this stuff for a while.

And the most important part of Newt's campaign:

http://www.newt.org/news/lets-bump-plans-comparison-gingrich-and-pe...

has been around a while as well.

He was saying those things. I know that. What is new after Florida is he said he will sign a document so he can be held accountable for actually doing them. Newt has a history of going down the wrong road sometimes and he even admits that. It is good he admits to being wrong on some things unlike Romney. Newt should sign a pledge to the American people specifically stating some of these things he will do. Then maybe people will trust his word more.

I like Newt better than Romney but it looks like Romney is going to win this. We will know for sure by the middle of March. I am actually surprised at Romney's stance on Romneycare. He could have said it was wrong and he would have locked up the nomination but he defends it vigorously. I guess his ego is too big to say he was wrong or he does believe in mandates on the people which is scary.

You're right about signing a document (executive order to be precise).  Fair enough.

Regarding Romney, he may win the primary but he will lose against Obama (I will vote for Mitt if he wins though).  I've said it before and I'll say it again: every decision Obama makes is driven by the desire to raise taxes.  From obamacare, to 99 weeks of unemployment, to the gm take over.  Everything he does is driven by the misguided notion that millions of Americans need to pay more taxes.  To explain how just about every decision Obama has made is a mistake, you have to explain that his core belief - raising taxes, is a mistake.  But how can you do that when you propose high taxes yourself, like Romney does?  So you see, everyone who thinks Romney has a chance or is most electable is missing the big picture.  In the end, Obama is going to frame the debate as "rich vs poor" and Romney will lose because he isn't willing to lower taxes and (apparently is unable to) explain to Americans why that will lead to job creation, smaller government, a balanced budget, and more freedom.   Romney talks about this election being about "the soul of America" and wanted to have America return to being a merit based society.  Yet, his tax policy is punitive, progressive, and (literally) almost identical to Obama's.  If Romney wins the primary, expect a repeat of 2008.
