Re: “Who will get your vote in the Jan. 21 Republican primary?

The death of the Evangelical lobby could be the outgrowth of the boisterous support that Newt is recieving in South Carolina. While presenting an image of protecting American family life many Evangelicals are supporting a man who had a mistress for several years, and now sports a third marriage. That saga has been confirmed by his second spouse Marianne. Many Evangelicals are refusing to support Romney for a variety of reasons that are not hard to discern. All of this opposition to a father with a great wife and noble sons who has honored his marriage vow made years ago.

I am an Evangelical and as a Christian cannot understand support for Gingrich and non support for Mitt Romney. If this support results in Newt's S.C. win and getting the eventual nomination, I can no longer see any Evangelical credibility left in the electorate.

Re: “The GOP primary contenders and their supporters plead their cases

AN APPEAL TO SOUTH CAROLINA!

WHETHER OR NOT CASINO OPERATORS GIVE 20 MILLION OR MORE TO NEWT GINGRICH WITH ALL HIS PAST MISTAKES, I believe Mitt Romney is the only Republican candidate who can defeat Obama and make a great President for this nation. Several indicators will give you a clue as to why Mitt Romney can defeat the current President. These components include:

The President, his staff and their comments.

The President, his staff and even Democrat party notables have let it be known that Mitt Romney is the candidate they don’t want to run against. This match would suddenly center the media as well as the public on Obamas’ dismal record while in office. That record centers around the Presidents elitism and has resulted nationally in a high rate of joblessness, elitist socialistic management, exorbitant Hollywood parties, quiet obedience to Wall Street, travel excesses, frequent vacation substitution for work and an overall disregard for entrepreneurship. Obama wants to avoid Mitt Romney at all costs.

Mitt Romney is thoroughly equipped with a great management background. He has been successful in business for the most part. At this moment a man of financial success is needed during a time that boasts an overall growth in lack of trust in government. Romney’s work with our Winter Olympics is financial legend in contrast to the President’s failure to attract a future Olympiad to Chicago.

The family of Mitt Romney is solid and shares its role models with America. Mitt’s wife promotes harmony, character and teamwork. As an Evangelical I note a personal faith commitment that is a positive in leading our country. Although a different faith perspective than mine, one’s faith should not have any negative bearing on running for the Presidency.

John Kennedy faced this challenge as a Catholic seeking the same office in 1960. Reverend Herbert Meza, a Presbyterian chaired nominee Kennedy’s appearance before some 300 ministers and a similar number of observers. His speech was honestly presented and dealt with this question comprehensively for all present to hear. His response in as relevant today as it was in the past. “I believe in an America where the separation of Church and State is absolute-where no Catholic prelate would tell the President (should he be a Catholic) how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote-where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference-and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the President who might appoint him or the people who might elect him…

That is the kind of America in which I believe-And it represents the kind of Presidency in which I believe-a great office that must be neither humbled by making it the instrument of any religious group, nor tarnished by arbitrary withholding its occupancy from members of any religious group. I believe in a President whose views on religion are his own private affairs, neither imposed upon him by the nation or imposed upon him as a condition to holding that office…If my church attempted to influence me in any way which was improper or which affected adversely my responsibilities as a public servant, sworn to uphold the Constitution, then I would reply to them that this was an improper action on their part, that it was one to which I could not subscribe, that I was opposed to it, and that it would be an unfortunate breech-an interference with the American political system. I am confident there will be no such interference.” Kennedy further stated if he found any conflict between his conscience and the responsibility of the Presidency, he would resign the office. John F. Kennedy was running for President.

As an American I am personally honored by the prospect of Mitt Romney’s candidacy. Barack Obamas fears it.

AN APPEAL TO REPUBLICANS TO SUPPORT A WINNER
