No politician wants to be compared to Richard Nixon, but Mitt Romney might like the following.

First, consider the similarities in their 1960 and 2012 presidential contests.

Romney and Nixon were both mighty warriors, but they still lacked the natural ease of the best retail politicians.

In person, they were warm, charming— even gentle.

But on television it was different.

When they debated their cool and telegenic opponents, they sometimes appeared square and old-fashioned in comparison.

They just didn’t connect the way successful presidential aspirants typically do.

So, when they lost the general election, many in the press quickly wrote their political obituaries.

All conceded their brilliance, stamina and mastery of the facts—especially those of the troubles brewing overseas.

But they were, by most accounts, finished.

But the tenacious Nixon would prove his naysayers wrong by once again capturing the GOP nomination eight years later, a feat made all the more remarkable by the further diminishment of his brand in 1962 when he lost a race for a lesser post, the California governorship.

There was likely not a soul in the United States who believed he could shake off such visible losses.

Of course he did shake them off, and for nearly 50 years, Nixon’s 1968 feat stands unmatched.

Besides Adlai Stevenson, he has been the only presidential nominee—of either party—to overcome the stigma of losing a general election to be offered a second chance

If Mitt Romney had renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson as his running mate in the 2012 presidential elections, he would have been president today, says National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) President Anthony Evans.

“Let’s put it this way. If Mitt Romney had selected Dr. Carson as his running mate in 2012, he would have been President of the United States today,” said Evans in an interview with The Christian Post on Tuesday.

“You don’t need 100 percent of the black vote to win. If 15 percent of the black vote had gone to Romney (in 2012) he would have won, especially in Ohio,” added Evans, who described himself as an independent voter.

“Dr. Carson’s bipartisan belief in the American people, reverence for its history and his refusal to be intimidated by notions of political correctness are refreshing,” said Republican New York City Councilman Dan Halloran to CP.

“In one of his analogies, he correctly pointed out that a bird needs both a left wing and a right wing to fly. There should be a balance of power between the parties, including here in New York. His warnings about education, wild spending and taxes that punish success should be heeded by both parties. If anyone is offended by those ideas, maybe they should ask themselves why.”

Basic Tenets of Belief:

Trinitarian belief in God – God the Father, His son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
Men will be punished for their own sins, not for Adam’s transgression.
Through the atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
First principles and ordinances of the Gospel
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
Repentance
Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins
Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost
A man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.
Belief in the same organization that existed in the primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.
Belief in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.
Belief that the Bible is the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. The Book of Mormon is also believed to be the word of God.
Belief in all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and belief that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.
Belief in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the Earth; and that the Earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
Claim the privilege of worshipping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.
Belief in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.
Belief in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men. Follow the admonition of Paul—believe all things, hope all things, have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, they seek after these things.

"Romney has a lot of business experience, which is valuable to be sure"

That is the reason I'll cast my vote for Perdue tomorrow.
