What did we learn from Iowa last night?
Iowa has got to be THE most boring place on earth. If you’ve never driven across I-80, border to border in Iowa, try it sometime, you’ll be looking for a huge cup of coffee every few miles just to keep from falling asleep at the wheel and killing yourself! ðŸ˜›
Even the Welcome to Iowa sign lets you know, BOREDOM AHEAD. ðŸ˜•
Iowa might be a really good place, but the only thing I can think of that makes Iowa any kind of a stand-out is, they have the 1st presidential activity, the Iowa Hawkeyes, lots ofÂ corn and some MASSIVEÂ hogs.
And in ALL fairness, the Iowa caucuses don’t have all that great a record in making picks.
I had some serious concerns overÂ the last several weeks when Ron Paul was polling as high as he was, but last night the Iowa GOP proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, they are NOT as dumb as IÂ first thought them to be. They’re close, I mean, it appears that they believe Mitt Romney is a Conservative, so, that alone casts a lot of doubt! ðŸ˜›
Real Conservatives have NO USE for Mittens Romney.
I know the train of thought that’s running through the minds of GOP voters, anyone but Barack Hussein Obama, to the point that *some* would even vote for Ron Paul if, by some seriously strange quirk of fate, he were to become the GOP nominee.
I’m fully convinced that Obama has got to go, I was convinced that he never should have been here to begin with, but the GOP threw up the weakest ticket imaginable when they gave us McRino and Northwoods Barbie as the only alternative.
Some believe, and I am one of them, that the RNC/GOP has already made the decision, Mitt is the one this year. And look at the endorsement he picked up today, John McRino.
The only thing that would make this any more a case of Deja Vu would be for Romney to come out right now saying that if HE is the nominee, Sarah Palin would be his VP choice.
Sadly, I know some people that would mess their pants if that were to happen, “Well ya see, I don’t like Mitt, I’m only voting for him so Palin can be the VP.”
We heard it last election, you can bet that it would be said again, and once more I am going to point out, Vice President is a mostly *do nothing* position unless the POTUS is taken out of action through some set of circumstances. I didn’t vote for McRino for that very reason, besides the fact that I detest the old bastard, I felt that Palin was the LAST person I would want in charge of this nation. Now, I almost see an exact repeat of 2008 about to happen here in America.
So, Michele Bachmann is OUT, I believe that’s a good thing. John Huntsman didn’t play, he felt that Iowa was beneath him and had no significance, he was likely correct. Perry finished in 5th place but, it’s Iowa, it is NOT a bellwether of the nation. Ron Paul came in 3rd place, ahead of Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich, and it looks like Rick Santorum gave Romney a run for the money.
Again, it’s Iowa, it’s a caucus, it’s NOT a binding vote, not in ANY way. Basically, what we saw last night was a feel good event for the state of Iowa that, in truth, has little, if ANY bearing on to political complexion of the 2012 race.
Who won the Iowa GOP caucus in 2008? Mike Huckabee … and where is he now?
