Gingrich has support from 25 percent of likely Republican caucusgoers, Paul is at 18 percent and Romney at 16 percent. – Iowa Caucuses
OMG. OMG! OMG!!
So let me get this straight.
Flim flam artist, convenient conservative, serial philanderer and cheater, a man who ditches wives when they’re sick with cancer or MS, who’s a Freddie Mac sponge, K-Street addressee businessman with a loybbist’s touch, has won the hearts of enough Iowa evangelical Christians to now lead the pack.
These people also actually believe that Newt Gingrich is a more righteous conservative than Ron Paul?
They also believe that Mitt Romney, who has a perfect family history, along with the perfect picture to boot, to go along with his “beet red… stubborn… thin-skinned” persona, isn’t good enough for Iowans, because he doesn’t call Pres. Obama a socialist, a Marxist, though he surely deserves points for not sitting on a cough in a green energy commercial paid for by Al Gore, doesn’t he?
Not in Iowa, where voters are content to stick their heads in the political sand until Mr. Gingrich smothers them with his legendary hypocrisy, because of their laughable gullibility.
Republican Party primary voters are rubes, especially in Iowa, a state that doesn’t deserve one-quarter of the attention it gets every presidential election cycle.
Hey, but considering I’m rooting for at least one serious independent challenger to the big two corrupt parties and their bought off Wall Street, insider candidates, Newt’s just the ticket to put a jet engine under that possibility.
Has anyone explained to Iowas, as well as Floridians and South Carolinians that there’s just no way Newt Gingrich can win the general election against Barack Obama? On second thought, it’s pretty frightening that would require explanation.
But if by some long shot of long shots, Newt I-love-me-I-really-really-love-me Gingrich pulls this nomination gambit off, you can bet more candidates will jump to challenge him outside the Republican and Democratic parties, because Obama vs. Gingrich would be even more depressing than Obama vs. Romney.
The 99% don’t want either of these men to run the country, because we all deserve better, this country deserves better.
Throwing a dart a candidate board with Rocky, Buddy, or a guy named Jon and a player to be named later would be far more satisfying than casting a ballot for either man, neither of whom actually offer a choice or will make a difference at all if they win. They’re flip sides of the same coin that leads us all to the same dead option end.
