    Sorry Mr. Jacobson, but I have to make a synopsis about the 2 leading GOP candidates, of whom 1 of them, will most likely be the next US President.

    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..

      Nice analysis of Gingrich and Romney. But you did not directly address the most important question: electability. Which is more likely to beat Obama? Contrary to your implication, I think Romney would be a much more conservative President than Obama. Better in other respects too. That said, I think I would prefer Newt (not 100% sure yet).

      Your analysis of the two candidates’ histories addresses their electability somewhat, but what about other attributes? The thing I like about Newt in this regard is that he really can crystallize issues, put them in an understandable framework, then directly address them. This applies to personal issues as well as political ones. For example, I saw a headline this morning where Newt commented that strategic consulting (for Freddie Mac) is different from lobbying. I don’t know what he actually did, but this statement really puts this issue in a more favorable (for him) light. And, he seems to be able to do this for almost all issues. Even with the stupid appearance with Pelosi on global warming, he simply said that it was stupid, one of the dumbest things he ever did.

      Seems to me both Newt and Romney would have a pretty good chance against Obama. But, which one is best? We have a little time left to figure that out.

      “First of all, there is no perfect candidate, let alone another Patriotic Constitutional Conservative Ronald Reagan…”

      Right off the bat, you start poorly….though “there is no perfect candidate” is right on the money, you missed sorely by saying “let alone another Patriotic Constitutional Conservative” (I’ll leave linking that phrase to Reagan, as only the word ‘conservative’ applies, for another time).

      The only candidate that can lay claim to that phrase is Dr. Ron Paul: retired Air Force officer, 25+ year record of voting conservative AND constitutionally in the House of Representatives, and a fiscal giant in DC. He has been warning Americans about the Federal Reserve’s destruction of monetary value, out-of-control spending by both political parties, and the defense/entitlement spending crisis since he was endorsed by Ronald Reagan in the 80’s.

      So yes, you can listen to the media (both web and broadcast) and hear all the denigration and abuse heaped on Dr. Paul, if they even deign to acknowledge his presence in the race (see the last debate where sitting members of the House Armed Forces committee [Dr. Paul & Rep. Bachmann] were ignored) as he truly frightens the MSM and elites. But, be aware that he’s got the best organization in IA and NV, looks to take second in NH and gets the most donations from both active and retired military when compared to the other candidates.

      In my book, Tea Party supporters should be flocking to Dr. Paul’s campaign, as he’s the intellectual ‘godfather’ of the movement toward a constitutional republic that lives within its means and away from today’s bastardization of the concept…..

        ….knew it’d happen….substitute the word ‘patriotic’ for the word ‘conservative’ in this phrase:

        (I’ll leave linking that phrase to Reagan, as only the word ‘conservative’ applies, for another time)

    You left out the CPF retirement system (Central Providence Fund). A mandated personal retirement and medical savings account. Singaporeans do not contribute into a collectivist pool like Social Security.

    Singaporeans also have the option to invest a safe percentage of their CPF in government stocks and bonds.

    Government employees and civil servants get a one time service gratuity on retirement to augment their CPF savings. None of the lavish nonsense and unfunded entitlements that US public sector unions demand.
