The Orlando Sentinel endorses Mitt Romney and has a not so glowing assessment of Newt Gingrich

The Orlando Sentinel endorsed Mitt Romney today pointing out his many strengths and the need for his skills in Washington. What was remarkable about their endorsement was their not so glowing assessment of Newt Gingrich and his Career:
The contrast in leadership experience and style between Romney and his closest rival for the nomination, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, is striking.

Gingrich, who led Republicans to take control of the House in 1994 for the first time in decades, turned out to be far more capable in campaigning than running the chamber as speaker. Some of the toughest criticism has come from members of his own party.

Following his re-election in 1998, Gingrich resigned his seat rather than run for another term as speaker. Analysts said he didn't have the votes to keep the job. Since then, Gingrich has remained in Washington, cashing in as a "consultant" to clients like mortgage giant Freddie Mac.

Despite his decades as an insider, Gingrich has brilliantly articulated the rage many GOP voters feel against the political establishment. We admire his intellect, but when it comes to leadership, anger doesn't trump a diverse and successful record.

This is from the Pensacola News Journal newspaper endorsement of Romney, I found it quite funny.

"Four years ago, this newspaper endorsed U.S. Sen. John McCain in our state's GOP presidential preference primary. At the time, McCain was trailing badly in the polls and seemed to have little chance of winning.

But we felt that McCain would be the best choice in terms of what was best not only for the nation, but for Florida and for our area. McCain went on to be the Republican nominee where, unfortunately, his good ideas were diluted by the circus sideshow that was Sarah Palin.
This year, for the Jan. 31 Republican primary election, we recommend former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney."

lat night Kirsten Powers a diehard Dem said she would consider Romney since he is not as divisive and could unite the country. Why is that not getting more press?

Why is that not getting more press?

Because she's left of Nancy Pelosi. Romney needs to win over REPS now, not Democrats.
