Mitt won with 39% and unfortunately I don’t think it was any big surprise. What was a surprise was that Ron Paul came in second with 23% though I pray he has no chance in Hell. The race is screwy and fluid. John Huntsman came in third with 17%. Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum fought for fourth with 9%. Rick Perry came in dead last with 1%, though they are all staying in the race.
It still seems to me that the American public can’t make up it’s mind though the pundits will tell you Romney has it sewn up. Only time will tell who will eventually win the nomination to actually run against Obama for President. Now it’s off to North Carolina and perhaps we’ll see if the decision is really definitive for Romney…I hope not. I certainly hope the decision doesn’t swing to Ron Paul.
What happened to the anger? I thought American’s were angry about the economy? How about all the unemployment, let’s not take our eye off the prize… Unfortunately I don’t think the full swing vote has made up it’s mind yet…perhaps a new opponent will still throw their hat in the ring, or like John McCain and New Jersey’s Chris Christie, more influential backers will stand by Romney and give him more steam. Or will other interesting Politicos like Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh or even “The Donald” Trump back some of the underdogs and actually hurt their chances? Right now I believe it’s still anyone’s race, except the GOP and the money seems to be in Romney’s corner. So is it sewn up? I just don’t know? But, I’m really worried Obama is going to pull it out against whomever. I think the people to the middle don’t care for Romney and won’t show up at the polls if he wins the nomination, I don’t think he’s got the WOW factor to interest them to actually care. Also, Obama’s people have been busy fudging the numbers for so long, it seems like the economy is turning around, but ask all the unemployed if their doing better, ask all the underemployed….I think they’ll beg to differ. Stats can lie! And please don’t forget about the rise in the price of gas and how about food? Someone should bring Obama to task for that….how’s that hopey changey thing doing for you, people?
Romney had the nerve to say that negative ads against him are the worst of what America is about….really? What was it when he was streaming negative ads against Newt? Why is it only bad now? I heard a man on FOX on Greta Susteran’s show complaining about how Newt is going negative on Romney and it’s just not the way to go and that it sounds like jealousy of the winner, blah, blah, blah, again really? What happened to all the negative ads (Willard) Mitt did? Oh, I guess we should forget about that since he’s WINNING, huh? Bullshit! All’s fair in politics, and I don’t think it should reflect negatively against the other men as they are speaking the TRUTH! Let’s listen and let the chips fall where they may! It’s getting ugly, but it’s only fair if they all get a little rough, Mitt did say he had “broad shoulders” and could take it, then take it like a man!
We’ll see what happens, but it’s probably better if some of the negatives come out now before Obama gets it’s hands on them and turns them on the GOP candidate…so we’ll see the circus continue…ain’t Politics GRAND!
