Your points are valid and I agree with you for the most part. However, the fact remains that the primary objective is to oust BHO from office and we must control what we can to best effect that outcome.

Newt has imploded with his recent angry attacks, his unbalanced rhetoric. His emotion which in the SC debate seemed welcome and honest has now become an uncomfortable contrast to Romney's calm and cool headedness. In truth, the debates that Newt keeps claiming he will win are not the measure of success, and in addition, he did not manage to best even Romney in the past two sessions. So he looks weak on that point. He has become petulant and whiny and feels desperate, not a good image. Plus, I cannot let go of the fact that his marriage infidelities fly in the face of every comment of his about family values.

Romney has a well planned, well funded and well oiled machine. He is a calculated and measured politician. That suddenly turns into a positive when we aim this at BHO.
