I don't get it. Mitt Romney isn't winning anything....he's just outspending and surviving.
He's personally spent or his PACs supporting him have splurged nearly $10M between, Iowa, NH, SC & FL...on advertising lambasting his opponents - mainly The Newt.
This is "big money", "corporations are people", Clarence Thomas politics at its worst. The real loser isn't Gingrich...it's YOU!
Gingrich should be least angry about all the hits he's taken...he was all for these new election laws that allow these "pacs" to infect the airwaves in secrecy with nasty commercials and the benefactor gets to stand there and say, "I don't know anything about that commercial, I haven't seen it". Now newt is claiming he's the victim! That's a nice joke!
This really is the most disgusting election cycle I've ever seen...and it's only 3 states old! Is this what we want in America? Really?
Just a couple weeks ago there was this guy named Herman Cain, remember him? He was the TGOP front-runner, but white women kept hounding him about sex harassment and then a black woman finally outed him over a consensual sex relationship and BOOM, no more Herman Cain! Suddenly Newt is the next front-runner! Amazingly he goes from .00006% to 30% quicker than any squirrel ever plucked an ACORN!
That's about the time The Mitt probably put in a call to his friends running that PAC! They flooded the Iowa airwaves with anti-Newtism until entire shows were cancelled and all that was on the air was "Newt this, Newt that"...and The Mitt still only got 25% of the Iowa vote!
And now last night Mitt "wins" in New Hampshire and all the pundits are saying it's over! Really? I don't see how that could be. 75% of the folks in Iowa were anti-Mitt. 60% of the folks in New Hampshire are anti-Mitt - and New hampshire is in Mitt's back yard! What does this say about the man?
Hell, Huntsman woke up with a banging pulse this morning after an incredible showing yesterday and an awful speech last night!
No this race ain't quite over yet! Ron Paul won't be going away anytime soon! And with South Carolina, Florida, Michigan and Arizona coming up...only a fool would say Romney has wrapped up the teanomination!
The unemployment rate in Iowa and New Hampshire is half that of South Carolina! Michigan is bleeding too! Florida isn't in such great shape either! And besides - these are all "conservative" states....so get back to us after these 4 states have voted! Yesterday 40% of the voters in NH identified themselves as "moderates" and still Romney only got 40% of the vote!
Somehow I don't think commercials with Romney saying, "I like to be able to fire people" is going to play very well in South Carolina, or Michigan or Florida or any state for that matter...I think he's in bigger trouble than most would think.
And then there's Ron Paul! Ron Paul just won't go away!
I have no idea who's going to win SC...but I think that clown governor from Texas is going to unload some huge bombs in the coming days! David Duke may switch his endorsement from Paul to Perry!
If Romney is still surviving after the next 4 primary's...I'll agree the nomination is his!
But I'm stocking up on popcorn in the meantime...the laughs are just beginning!
