If Newt is the nominee for the GOP I guess I will have to write in Ron Paul in the general election because I will not vote for that petulant gas bag or Obama either one.

Romney or Newt are not going to be president. I'll bet my shorts on it. They might get the nomination, but they aren't going to get support from all 3 places they need. They won't get the disenfranchised Dems. They won't get the Independents and 3rd party types, and they won't get the Far Right Conservatives.
Romney is too pretty and untrustworthy. He forgot his own first name for God's sake. He jumped on the bandwagon with Wolf Blitzer and he claimed "Mitt" was his "real first name" as well. But he LIED! He will do or say anything to get some laughs and support. He is a pretty and polished politician. He can't beat Obama.
Newt is a typical entrenched politician. He won't get any votes from those 3 groups either. Dems can't jump ship all the way to Newt. Independents can't trust him, the Far Right might buy into his recent platforms (copied from Ron Paul), but they are also the religious crowd that probably can't forgive his indiscretions. He can't beat Obama.
Bachmann had a chance, but she faded out very early. Huntsman had a chance, but he doesn't have the war chest of campaign funds. Santorum is a great guy, but he won't get the nod.
It is Ron Paul, or Obama at inaugeration time in January 2013. Those are the only choices unless some dark horse (Palin?) jumps in at the last second.

Jumping on the bandwagon eh?
