Serious thinker,

I'd like to comment on some of the items you brought up in your response to this commentary.

"If for some reason there is a flaw with Gov. Romney, then we need to know now." I agree. That's exactly why Santorum and Gingrich want him to release years of his tax records now. Neither one believe he has 'cheated' on how much he legally paid. They just want the people to be able to know what he paid those taxes on. Every year, if you are an investor who buys and sells stocks, in particular, your investment firm(s) are required, by federal law, to send you a line item listing of all your transactions. If you are an active investor, you know that each of those lines names the company traded, the date of the purchase, what you originally paid, the date of the sale, the amount you sold it for, and what your taxable profit or loss from the sale was. That's some quite valuable information and totally in line with a question we should ask of our candidates. Gingrich has already released his taxes and Santorum will as soon as he can get to his computer. Romney wants to wait a few months. He could release his previous years' taxes right now as they are already listed and calculated. Something in there he doesn't want us to know? Just askin'.

"Ms. Gingrich reminds me of a lady who has to have a lot of 'things' ...". What the hell does that have to do with Newt becoming president? He's personally bought her everything she has. He was criticized for spending so much. If your husband bought you a $50,000 diamond ring, wouldn't you get quite upset with any of your friends who questioned his judgment?

If you believed that Marianne Gingrich just decided on her own to interview with ABC two days prior to an election that could eliminate Newt from the race, then you are not as much a serious thinker than you might believe. Number 1, why would you believe a 'woman scorned' anyway without any substantiation of her claims on her part (hell hath no fury like a woman scorned), and number 2, that is a long gone part of his past he has apologized and repented for already. It's personal. It has nothing to do with the presidential run.

Another thing you should seriously think about, is that Newt is the only candidate in the race who truly knows the inner workings of the Congress. He may be criticized for 'having an idea a minute' and never getting anything accomplished, but he in fact got 7 of the 10 items in the contract with American passed with a democratic president and a democratic Congress. Do you not believe he can do it again, particulary from the 'bully pulpit'?

Think a little harder before you decide on 'fluff'!
