After Ames….Now What?!?

I’m headed to Boston for work this morning, and good fortune has given me a few extra minutes before boarding my flight. So you lucky people get the benefit of my random post-Ames GOP nomination thoughts.

First, I’m not surprised that T-Paw dropped out. He was boring and completely boorish in his very personal attacks on Michele Bachmann during last week’s FOX News debate. Second, I am NOT a Bachmann supporter, but I’m pretty pissed off about how she is being treated by the press — liberal and conservative alike. Yes, Byron York — I’m lookin’ at you.

With regard to Bachmann, I see a major flame-out coming for her campaign. That’s all I’ll say about that…

I’m still a Herman Cain fan, I’ve given his campaign some of my hard-earned money, but I just don’t see him catching on as I hoped by now. I hope I’m wrong and he turns it on soon.

I’m told I should be flocking now behind Rick Perry. Sorry, I don’t see “it” yet. Someone please educate me.

In a week from today, I’ll be a South Carolina voter. So hopefully I’ll get a firsthand chance to meet my potential future President. I’m still holding out hope that Marco Rubio & Paul Ryan hear the desperate call of their fellow Americans to defeat Barack Milhous Obama.

  1. Good luck in SC!
    Since I live in the Golden State it really doesn’t matter who I support, for me, voting is an exercise in futility that I go through every single election, even the local ones,

  2. There is still so much more to go with this. It is likely the front runners will be Bachmann and Paul for many more months, but what I would more like to see is the elimination of weaker candidates like Romney, who won’t go (he had lots of money to spend), but probably should. Perry had a decent showing for a write-in candidate (beats Romney). Perry is the one to watch and he will prove to be formidable (at least this was my impression).

  3. I completely agree about Herman Cain. I sincerely believe that the government should be run like a business, and that doing so would be better for everyone (even those who rely on entitlements, or the government in general). Given his business experience, Cain appears to be, from my perspective, the best person to do that (run the government like a business).

  4. Plenty of time for money to flow and mistakes to be made.

    One thing is for sure: The BIG THREE each need a win out of IA, NH, or SC. Kinda cool that two women Sarah Palin and Nikki Haley may be king makers.
