No comparison is perfect, just as no person is, or was, including (and especially, Churchill).
If you think Churchill was flawless you don’t know history.
If you think Newt’s flaws are deal-breakers, you’re not paying attention.

Well said. Newt’s flaws and mistakes are what they are, and we’ve all seen them and all been nauseated by them. Having said that, he was fantastic from about 1990 through about late 95. He did a helluva lot of good that helped keep the Reagan economy rolling for years, even if he did crap out in 96 and forward.
The point is this: his sudden conservative religion is not new to him. It was on hold for a while, I’ll admit, but it is not totally new.
Do I totally trust him? No. Will he advance what we all believe incredibly well on the big stage of a debate with Obama. Damaned right, and it will be more important than ever before in Presidential debate history IMO.
