First of all, there is no perfect candidate, let alone another Patriotic Constitutional Conservative Ronald Reagan, in the current field of candidates.. So, with that being said, Newt, with his warts and all, has all of his 38 years of political career baggage, and or laundry, all out there in the open, for all to see.. His accomplishments, and his mistakes and flaws.. So, the people can decide whether or not, they want and like Newt, over the other candidates, at America's helm, as the next US President. Especially with major economic, political, social, and international world affair issues at stake, and on the table, the next President will have his or her hands full.. which Newt is more than qualified to handle..
But, the same cannot be said of Romney, which in fact, the opposite is true. Romney is almost like Obama in may respects, as he hides everything controversial and negative, and them lies about them when asked.. He is so much like Obama is many regards, character and political tactics, it's often hard to tell the difference.. and the MSM, refuses to vett Romney, like they refused with Obama.. why, because if there is one thing the liberals like more than a Democrat in power, it's 2 Democrats in power.. In other words, when the candidate on either side of the political race, is of the same stripes, and agenda, then it's a win win situation either way for the liberal agenda.. That's why they hate Constitutional Conservatives, like Ronald Reagan, who could not be bought or corrupted.
So, this also why there is a split in the Republican party, the standard bearing Republican Party establishment of Bush, Rove, Romney, Christie, etc.. and the Tea party Constitutional Conservatives like Marco Rubio, Jim DeMint, Michele Bachmann, Paul Ryan, etc.. This is where the line has been drawn in these 2 factions of the Republican Party. But the Tea Party represents the faction, that represents the Will of the People, not the Will of the crony politicians, which is main the difference.. and that is why the far right crony capitalists like Romney and Christie, are backed by the establishment Republican Party.. But the question is, is Newt part of the Republican Party establishment, or the Constitutional Conservative Tea Party faction.. It would seem he is now Part of the Tea Party, that represents the people, which is why he is now, the frontrunner, compared to Romney, who is backed by the liberal establishment, and is why Romney is not being vetted, and is why Newt is being attacked and vetted, and the target of the Democratic attack machinery, as well as the Republican Right attack machinery, ie; both sides.
This is the truth, as the people have been the targeted enemy since Obama's election as US President, then reinforced by Pelosi and Reid of the 111th Congress, then made even more evident after the 2010 mid-term elections, from both sides of the political aisle. So, it is no surprise that they, the Obama left and the RINO right, have teamed up to coordinated a media attack against Newt.
