Enough already! I don’t know about you but I was in overload with all the hype concerning the damn Iowa caucus, but now that it’s over, I’m so non-plussed! So, Mitt Romney won by 8 points, but does that matter? This man has been running for 6 years, that’s right 6 years and only won by 8 points. He had more money than anyone else’s campaign and used it. Rick Santorum won 24.5% of the vote and has not a chance in hell but did raise one million bucks in that one night. He scares me with his really conservative views on abortion. I think he’ll set us back many years, whatever happened to Roe VS Wade? He doesn’t believe in abortion even in cases of rape and incest. That’s crazy!
What I’d like to know is if any of this matters in the scheme of things?! I hope the GOP gets it’s act together, I’d love one of these men to beat Obama in 2012 but WHO? I just don’t know who can and will win… I can’t imagine number 3 at 21.4% Ron Paul, Mr. Libertarian running as a supposed Republican winning. He’s a bonafide wingnut in my opinion and doesn’t have a chance in hell of winning. Let’s just hope he doesn’t go and run as a third party candidate and split the vote and help Obama win again. Newt Gingrinch came in fourth place with 13.3%, suffering from all the negative publicity from Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. Let’s see if he’s learned his lesson and turns his campaign around to use their own negativity against them. Michele Bachmann was sixth place and dropped out of the race for president.
It’s off to New Hampshire. Let’s see what happens there! Let’s hope we see a more definitive winner. Plus we’ll have another face-off where we’ll hear the candidates speak . . .
