I’d choose Perry just based on preference.

Pragmatically I’d pick Gingrich.

Jon Huntsman. Has most conservative platform, and is the only one with a serious plan to end TBTF....promising to end the Wall Street/Washington axis.

Newt.

For one term because we need a pro to untangle the rat knot little bammy has created.

During that four year term assemble a REAL conservative team and get them elected in 2016.

I would vote Newt first, followed close by Santorum. Newt can articulate theories and Conservative ideas better than anyone and has a proven record of Conservative success. Santorum is close and has much less personal baggage of a marital nature.

Newt. Because let’s face it, everyone knows that when Newt speaks, people listen. When Perry or Santorum speak, it is the same-old, same-old tired talking points.

Newt, he has the policies, experience and determination to restore our country, and he will put up the best fight. He will fight the lame steam media, Obama and his goons, and the political establishment.

Settle the Nat’l Debt by selling tickets to either his debates with Obama or his ads challenging Obama’s every word on the campaign trail.

Rick Santorum.

He's my ideal candidate.

That said, I'd gladly vote for Newt or Perry if either of them turned out to be the guy.

If the GOP nominates Romney, I'm going rogue.

Newt, and if I had a second choice it would be Perry just because he is from Texas and that is sufficient to drive liberals insaine. No the guy from PA.
