No matter what the media wing of the Democrat Party tells you, and believe me their writings today are trying to tell you that Mittens is going to be the Republican standard-bearer, that simply isn’t true. What I took away from last night is that Romney has the most money, and if we don’t help our candidates who are still standing to move from State to State, then their headline will occur. I am thrilled that Governor Rick Perry stayed in the race, I believe he will enjoy unprecedented support in the south and I don’t mind that Santorum almost won last night, he is a good man as well. I am sorry that Michele Bachmann could not run as the culture warrior and Republic saving conservative she was prior to her run. It appears people become stupid when running. I believe her downfall was attacking instead of constantly reminding people of the freedoms inherent in the idea of America and it brought her down.
The bottom line is for over a year now, We The People have told pollsters over and over again that Mitt Romney is NOT the candidate we want and they keep telling us he is going to be the candidate. It is time to stand up and get the word out on your guy because if you continue to dilly dally you will get that which you so desperately don’t want, but the Democrats and the media do, and that is Mitt Romney Hey You 75% Get Busy To Ensure Romney Is Not The Republican Candidate
Mitt Romney won 25.19 percent of the vote in Iowa in 2008 – and lost that contest by 9 points.
Since then, Mitt Romney spent millions of dollars. He got better at debating. He annihilated Rick Perry. The SuperPAC aligned to Romney took out a surging Newt Gingrich with negative ads. And Romney focused his energy on attacking Barack Obama.
All that got him was 25 percent of the vote again last night. Almost exactly the 2008 result he had in Iowa.
He lost the nomination then. This isn’t exactly the start to 2012 Team Romney was expecting.
75 percent of Republican Caucus-goers want someone that isn’t Mitt Romney – a result that reflects polls nationwide.
And now Mitt Romney has four problems.
1) The media is going to hound Mitt Romney for underperforming – because they hate a frontrunner, because they appreciate an underdog, and because they are desperate for a real, hard-fought contest.
2) Newt Gingrich basically turned his concession speech into an announcement that his campaign would no longer be about winning. He will now focus on stopping Mitt Romney from winning and stopping Ron Paul from influencing Republican foreign policy. Mike Huckabee became determined to perform a kamikaze attack on Romney four years ago and it worked.
3) Rick Santorum is going to soak up a lot of oxygen this week. If he had risen weeks ago, he would have been given intense scrutiny. Now all that scrutiny will be leavened by flattering accounts of “how he did it” and how “he might just do it again” in New Hampshire.
4) Jon Huntsman was the only other candidate besides Rick Santorum that wasn’t damaged by last night’s results. He didn’t compete, so he didn’t underperform. He is going to get fresh attention and he is going to be focused on tearing Romney down.
I commend Newt Gingrich for going after Romney – what his PAC did to Newt deserves the exact same thing done to him going forward. I want to note that at the end of the day, if your candidate doesn’t win, there can be no whining, there can only be voting for the Republican candidate and sending the Marxist Barack Obama home to wherever he came from!
