GOP Selection Process

I like the debates that are going on within the GOP in the effort to find a candidate that can replace President Obama.  I don't mind washing dirty linen, but I dislike the lying that is going on in the media and in the various candidates' advertising campaigns.  I understand that at least some of the falsehoods are being put out by the so called Super Pacs, but I do not see the candidates disavowing them strongly enough.  I also understand that this is the real world and these things have been going on for as long as this country has existed. 

I am not naive enough to believe that there are any blemish-free candidates running for office.  I understand the alleged dirty linen of these four men pretty well by now.  My preference remains Newt Gingrich. but I can easily vote for either Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney to replace Obama.  I remain concerned about what happens after the election.  I believe that it is essential that we find a way to come together as a people to face the problems that confront us.  I do not believe that just voting one way or the other will be adequate this time around.  One of the main reasons why I am attracted to Gingrich is that I believe he has thought about those challenges more than any of the others.
