OVER TO YOU, FLORIDA.
The Republican Party itself may be alright, but the candidates running in the party's nomination race to get someone to face President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election, are not. They are creating a whole lot of problems for Republican voters.
They, voters, in next Tuesday's Florida primary are "caught between "the rock and the deep blue sea." so to speak. Of the two front runners, who seem to be the center of much attention, Gingrich and Romney, the choice between the two men is very hard to make; or to break the tie between them is in itself a monumental task.
Gingrich has marital problems, which people say make him out to be morally insecure; and Romney, whose riches are holding him back from being a good, or a reliable or a class citizen, happens to be the darling or favorite of the Right wing of the party.
He, Romney, has financial holdings all over the place, but they (holdings) are mostly hidden from the United States IRS.
"Mitt Romney set up shell companies in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to avoid U.S. taxes." (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.phpaz=view_all&address=433x812254)
There are rumors that he has a huge Swiss bank account, which must disqualify him as a candidate for the U.S. presidency; straight away.
“We're not going to beat Barack Obama with someone who owns Swiss bank accounts," says Gingrich.
Also of the two, Gingrich is more conservative than Romney, as his (Gingrich's) views on social issues are in line with his party's. Romney, according to media reports, has been flip flopping over abortion and homosexual "marriage", which conflicts with the party's policies.
So, presently, no one is envying the people in Florida, in making a choice for the Republican Party, for they have a really hard decision to make.
The other two candidates in the Republican Party nomination race, Santorum and Paul, are going to have some of the vote that will be cast in the Florida primary; however, that will not have much effect, as a majority of it is supposed to go to either Gingrich or Romney.
Let us hope that they (voters) will make the right choice. Nevertheless, they have to remember that they are voting for someone, who is going to be pit against Obama, a clean cut person.
Over to you, Florida. Good luck!
