Gingrich vs. Romney: Tweedledee vs. Tweedledum

Can the media really call the GOP contest between Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney a race?

There is very little difference between the two.

Both have open dalliances with the Left and left-wing views. Both have courted in lock-step with party bigwigs, playing Beltway bunkum while preaching holy writ to the voters at home. Both are Big Government conservatives, which raises serious questions about their "conservative" credentials.

U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, one of the GOP freshmen class of 1994, has slammed the former House speaker's leadership skills. He has openly voiced concern about a Gingrich candidacy leading the GOP against President Barack Obama.

Mitt Romney is the epitome of establishment Republicanism. He pushed a failing state-wide medical insurance mandate while serving as Governor in Massachusetts. This nanny state liberalism was the blue print for the hateful ObamaCare legislation rammed down the throat of the American People almost two years ago.

That reproachful encroachment of the state into the daily lives of the American people must be repealed if the Supreme Court falls short of its own duties and does not strike down the legislation. Do the American people really believe that Governor Flip-Flop Romney and Chameleon Newt Gingrich will have the political skill or will to engineer the repeal of the law?

No matter how weak the current crop of Republican Presidential candidates may seem to the GOP voters or the general electorate, we can do much better than Tweedledee Mitt and Tweedledum Newt.
