So...this is the best, and the brightest the GOP can come up with? God save the Republic.
JFK and Richard Nixom must be spinning like runaway ferris wheels in their graves. Their debate-the first televised-was stirring, marking distinctions in policies and vision. Last night was one of the best things even invented to put someone to sleep. I've been more excited watching the weather channel.
Nothing new was added to the political debte last night. It was a repitition of policy and charges against each other.
I'm not altogether certain that Newt Gingrich was awake through the debate, and with the exception of Romney, I'm not certain the others were either. Certainly the audience was somnolent. There was little fo the usual applause for positions or perceived points scored. They seemed to be in deep hypnosis. All considered the word BORING, jumps to mind.
Ron Paul, please develop a coherent message, Santorum...for God's sake this is NOT a referencum on abortion. Learn to be inclusive dude. Newt, perhaps you should take a nap before the debate on Tuesday and Mitt? Loosen up man. You might want to learn to relax a bit man. Just sayin'.....
First off, I apologize to everyone who took exception to what I wrote on my facebook page. All of the phone calls, all of the e-mails and the people who visited my apartment, you were all right. I was irritated by the attorney who wants to overturn the conviction of one of Blago's co-conspirators and, as sometimes happens, I typed before I thought.My apologies, no public official I know is in any way, shape or form, deserving of that.
So...Mitt has his stunning over the top 8 vote victory in Iowa. I suspect Michelle Bachman's husband, Marcus,regrets shopping for sunglasses for their dog-yes, honestly-rather than working for votes. Which could also explain the entire campaign for Bachman, I'm not sure.
Yesterday, I ventured that Santorum will win NH. Well, I've been reading more polls and I think Romney will take NH as well. I think the margin will be bigger than 8 votes-how's THAT for a daring prediciton?-but Santorum will come in somewhere around thrid place. I see very little hope for Gingrcih or Ron Paul.
Romney seems to me to be "Mc Cain lite." If that's what the GOP is planning to run on this will be a very interesting election. We can watch those debates with a sharply piqued interest. Romney will be a far more accomplished debater than McCain and as an extra added attraction, his health care plan for Massachusetts is almost a mirror image of the national health care plan passed by Congress. Romney has baggage, as we all do, but then we're not running for the highhest office in the land. The big difference here for Santorum is the fact that NH has fewer evangelists in it than Iowa does. While the state's GOP voters are conservative, the question is will they be conservative enough to vote for Santorum. We shall see....Dan
In the event you've not heard, Mitt Romney,after spending enough to clear the national debt and restore Bill Clinton's gift of the surplus, took Iowa by 8 whopping votes. Rather redolent of "W" claiming his re-election was a madate. John McCain was seen squeezing him tightly. Last time around, McCain wanted to squeeze him until he passed out. I'm spitballin' here, but my guess is Santorum takes NH-though I do think Mitt will take the nomination. Michelle Bachman-well, thank God and Greyhound she's gone-oh, sorry, she's only SUSPENDED her campaign. Whatever!
So...in case you've not heard, Romney, after spending nearly enough to pay off the national debt won in Iowa. It was a resounding victory of 8 "W"s mandate of his re-election. Now, I'm guessin' that NH will give their nod to Santorum. God, how I love to watch the GOP maneuver. It's my opinion, and only my opinion, but I think Romney is going to take this. I noticed McCain hugging him the other day. Last time around he wanted to squeeze the life outta the guy.--Dan
