Iowa Results

Posted by Troy on 4th January 2012 in Current Events, Political

Now I would like to give my two cents on the results of Iowa:

Romney:  He won by 8 votes after spending a fortune.  If Bachman had dropped out, then he would have lost to Santorum as none of her votes would have gone to Romney.  Despite Ann Coulter and others supporting him, I don’t think he will be the last man standing.

Santorum:  He’s my second choice.  I do think he’s forgettable.  He gives pretty solid answers to questions.  Overall, I like him best of the “Same old, same old” candidates.

Ron Paul:  I would have liked for him to do better.  I think he would do better if they just allowed candidates to discuss their platforms instead of doing debates.  Whenever they ask him a question on debates, it’s about Iran and newsletters and other things that don’t matter.  Really, compared to the impending demise of the dollar and our economy, whatever Iran does is meaningless.  If we go bankrupt, we can’t do anything about them having a nuke anyway.

Gingrich:  I think he may have shot himself in the foot by abandoning his “nice guy” act.  That was the only hope he had.

Perry:  I just think he’s too far down to have any hope.  I also think he’d be destroyed by the media and Obama.

Bachman:  It was her last gasp, and she quit.  I like her, but she’s not meant to be President.

Huntsman:  If you lie down with dogs, you get fleas.  He needs to drop.

I’m predicting Santorum will get the nomination, but I will continue to hold out hope for Ron Paul.  Stranger things have happened.

    Santorum is exactly who big liberals like Ed Schultz, want to Obama to go up against, because they feel like he is a carbon copy of Bush. I can’t see him carrying on against Romney, maybe I am wrong, and by the end of the NH and SC primaries we will know.

    Romney: If he wins, great, Obama with white skin. The king of the flip-floppers. I would open up all of my complaints about the guy, but the bottom line is I know he is a big gov. guy, period.

    Gingrich – he just wants to bring Romney down. That is the only reason he is staying in this.

    Perry – his pride wont let this go, but after SC, I predict he will be finished.

    Paul – well, see here: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/did-you-read-about-the-sly-move-the-ron-paul-camp-pulled-last-night/comment-page-3/#comment-2583755
