Obama won the New Hampshire Republican Primary
That’s how I see it. Romney thinks he’s been attacked by Newt and Santorum. He’ll faint when he sees what Obama has in store for him.
All the anti-capitalism rhetoric from Gingrich and Santorum seems to have backfired, as it should have. But it should only backfire on them, not us. Guess there was no way to avoid that. Ron Paul’s showing is largely attributable to way in which New Hampshire allows anybody and everybody to vote. You needn’t be a New Hampshire resident, you don’t have to be a Republican to vote in the Republican primary, you can register at the door without an ID, you hardly need to have a pulse. As a result Paul got the operation chaos vote. Real Republicans aren’t voting for his deranged foreign policy which finds endless excuses for every threat we face and holds that we have no right to defend ourselves.
Perry got 1% of the vote. Gad.
But it’s not over yet. Not by a long shot.
Quote from Steven Hayward, see Bankrupt Liberalism:
Romney may or may not be able to defeat Obama in November; obviously we’ll have a lot to say about the campaign as it unfolds. But I can predict this: if Obama manages to eke out re-election, his second term will just about finish off liberalism and its vessel, the Democratic Party. The larger question is whether he’ll finish off the country along with it.
