“LEADERSHIP” - Mitt Romney is Far Superior to Newt Gingrich

Governor Romney has been getting a bum rap these past couple of weeks, in my opinion. No whine here. Just fact. I must admit that I don’t understand how any significant numbers of values based conservatives can think Gingrich is superior to Romney in any way, let alone in character. Do we really know that Gingrich won’t eventually migrate to a fourth wife and religion? I realize that most Americans aren’t paying that much attention to politics right now, but those who know anything about Gingrich understand that he is the very epitome of all that is negative in politicians.

My biggest criticism of Obama in the last election was that he had never been a leader; that he had never led anything. Unfortunately for Americans, he is not even learning “on the job” to be a leader now. Gingrich has extensive leadership experience. By many measures, Gingrich is a leader. With this contrast, I do believe he would be superior to Obama as President. But frankly, that is not saying much at all. In my opinion, Gingrich as a leader does not hold a candle to Romney as a leader. Not even close. The very definition of “leader” and “leadership”, especially in relation to the Office of President of the United States of America, carries with it the highest expectations of character in all personal and public attributes, such as absolute integrity. What are all the character traits that come to mind when we remember that President Reagan would never consider walking into the Oval Office without wearing his suit coat out of respect? What do we think of when we think of President Clinton and the Oval Office? The Office of President is a sacred trust. No man or woman is perfect, but the President should be a person of unquestioned integrity and character and above reproach in every sense.

For what it is worth, I believe Obama to be a more principled man than Gingrich, though I could not disagree with his ideology more.

Is there a man more self-absorbed and arrogant than Gingrich? Well, then again there is Trump and Blagojevich — I almost forgot. Gingrich already declared victory in the primary. He so dismissively waves off his 84 congressional ethics sanctions, liberal partnering, lobbying, and extramarital affair with a smile and quick retorts of his being older, wiser, and repentant. And we are to believe that? Oh, and the mistress with whom he had the years long secret affair was the one that taught him repentance and converted him to his current belief structure. And this secret affair he was nurturing all the while Gingrich was publicly hammering Clinton for his extramarital relationships! Oh, but all of us voters are now to actually believe Gingrich is a new man? The Gingrich hubris will continue.

I could list dozens of character traits that Romney has had his entire life; they run deep. The strongest character trait, and most important of all to me, is Romney’s integrity. His person, reputation, past, character, and integrity are above reproach. It would be a very sad day in America if Republicans were to choose a man like Gingrich over a man like Romney. Frankly, it is offensive to me that many people consider Gingrich to be a man of high character. His past behavior, actions, and life define the man’s character.

Mitt Romney will accept the mantle of President as a sacred trust. This nation needs Mitt Romney to lead it and the world like no other time in its history. By the way, if you want to get a glimpse of the kind of President Romney will be, read his book, Turnaround: Crisis, Leadership, and the Olympic Games — Gingrich could not have done what Romney did with the failing Olympics; not even close.

    I can’t believe only ~ 8.500 people saw this video:

    It should have been seen by millions.

    How dumb can a people be to not see and instantly know

    truly a bighead - what does that tell me about the state of the USA?

    Welcome Vic - nice post!

  3. Annie says:

    Very sensitive and thoughtful article. Mitt, on every level is our beat hope for this nation.
    I truly hope that the American people wakeup to Newt before it’s too late!

    Welcome Vic. Thanks for your thoughts on this insightful article.

  5. zefiliem says:

    Cain drops in polls, numbers go to other man, both (shall I say three) of them experienced the same
    thing in the nineties . An ex adulterer in the oval office and a first lady who had an affair with a married man. Is this the kind of role model that we want our children see? Hypocracy is the buzz word here.
    Protect our children. They are not political ( pandering, expediency, etc), and they need a God fearing leader in the white house as their role model.

    Excellent article….serious voters, and we are the majority will vote for Romney. I bet on it!

    Thanks for posting

  7. Abe in TX says:

    You’re absolutely right! The contrast between Gingrich and Romney in terms of character could not be more distinct. And notice, pretty much anyone who worked with Newt has lined up against him.

    Seeing people think Newt has in fact changed despite his more recent debacles is hard to swallow. Hopefully the rest of the electorate wises up in time.

    Thanks for the post. If you removed Newt’s name and just posted his miss-deeds followed with the multiple choice question, “Should this man be: a- Trusted to baby sit your child? b- Go to jail? c- Be president of the United States? or d- Sell you your next car?” what snswer would be most selected. Not likely ‘c’. If Newt wins the GOP nod, it will likely damage the moral authority of the party to a point of no repair.

    For those Mitt Romney supporters who DO NOT subscribe to GBTV.com [Glenn Beck’s new Internet TV Station], today’s episode dedicated the first 40 minutes or so to why Newt Gingrich should NOT be the Nominee for President. He had a man by the name of John Ziegler on, who has created three websites to expose Newt’s true record and links to speeches, etc. you can find them on http://www.newtcantwin.com and http://www.newtwontwin.com [I can’t remember the last one? OOPS!].
    Glenn also said that the reason that he hadn’t come out for Mitt was because he is afraid of the reprecussions to LSD members, by some of these “hate-mongers”!?! He hopes that he is wrong because he is friends with plenty of Evangelical Preachers, probably due to the Restoring Honor Rally on 8.28.10. I was there on the Mall on 8.28.10 and I hope that Americans of ALL faiths gather for the Future of Our Nation and Rally around Mitt as their Candidate!
    We cannot afford to have someone whose favorite President of the 20th Century is FDR and NOT Ronald Reagan!!!
    Please go to John’s Websites and find out the TRUTH about Newt, but a better use of your time is to READ: No Apology The Case for American Greatness, where Mitt lists in the Epilogue his 59 Points from the previous Chapters. Copy those POINTS and share them with your friends and relatives! We have alot of work to do, but Mitt and his “Organized Team” in all states are ready! Here in Virginia, we had to have all of Mitt’s Petitions completed and sent to Richmond, before they are forwarded to Boston [my Hometown!].
    My fellow Tea Party friend, Christine O’Donnell came out for Mitt yesterday! I immediately sent her a message of Thanks on Facebook! Mitt was there for lots of “Tea Party” Candidates with his financial support and personal appearances, where was Newt? Newt requires a $60,000.00 FEE for Speaking to groups and smirked about it on one of the videos on Glenn Beck! He sounded alot like Bubba!?!
