It’s going to be a cinch!
There is one little item that has to be dealt with however...Who will lead them in the good fight? Who is presidential material?
Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich? Or, maybe Ron Paul?
Romney is warning his fellow Republicans about the consequences if they nominate Newt Gingrich.
“Zany is not what we need in a president.” Mitt assured them.
Romney told the New York Times:
“Zany is great in a campaign. It’s great on talk radio. It’s great in print, it makes for fun reading,” Mr. Romney told The New York Times. “But in terms of a president, we need a leader, and a leader needs to be someone who can bring Americans together.”
Gingrich is surging in the polls and appears to be gaining momentum among the loon set. Their votes count too. I saw one of their bumper stickers on a car the other day. It read, “Stupid and Proud of It – And I Vote GOP No Matter What!”
To counter the negative assault, the former House speaker said, it is "going to require two weeks of my going around [Iowa], telling the truth, letting people look at the negative ad, look at the truth and decide: Do they really want to give their vote to somebody who is not telling the truth?"
Electability vs. ideology is the reality facing the GOP. The chance of finding a conservative enough candidate with electability is about as good as seeing the recession end tomorrow at noon. Zero.
The upcoming primary may tell another story…one where Ron Paul becomes the topic of serious consideration (they better not let him wear his tin foil hat during the polling).
I’m starting to suspect there’s going to be a good chance for a 3rd party candidate this election. Looking at my competition gives me hope.
Remember, Vote Dave (Independent Party) in 2012!
