Iowa Caucus saw a three way tie for many hours of the day between Romney, Paul and Santorum; until Romney took 8 miserable votes to lead over the tie he ended with Santorum.

Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, is not going to get the vote of the Evangelicals. Former Senator Rick Santorum will! Rick Santorum will not get the vote of moderate Republicans, former Congressman Ron Paul will! Ron Paul will not get the vote of conservative Republicans, Mitt Romney will!
and here comes the song – “…..for they are jolly goof fella’s and so say all of us and so say all of us, for they are jolly good felloooowwwwsss… and so say all of us! Now what?
Oh no! I forgot to mention Newt and Perry who ran off into the sunset together, probably heading South to commiserate! “They will be back,”.. like the proverbial bad guy getting up and attacking the heroine, knife in hand, after being defeated in the ninja fight by the hero in the movie !
But lets get serious..
The Republicans want to beat Obama so badly that they have prevented America from recovering from the Bush mess through obstructionism of the worst possible kind, and yet they cannot put up a presidential candidate worthy of a collective vote.
They have always been so good at “sticking” together, yet it is clear from IOWA, that no matter who the nominee is, that person will have a hard time getting the absolute support of the full Republican metric. So what is going to happen? Money is going to happen and pandering is going to happen, no matter who gets the nomination! That is what democrats will focus on now.
I care that not one of these Republicans have the faintest chance of ever leaving his evil slipper on the white mat next to the White House first bed at night! Please never call the White House a Republican home again, not with this motley crew and their recent stabs at the LGBT community, not to mention the cardinal mess ups we still suffer!
I have learned never to rest on my laurels when it comes to fervent racism, hate, bigotry all of which serve already as the wheels for this next contender’s ride.
Whosoever gets the nomination may step back into moderation on whatever issue got them to the front of the parade, thereby pandering to purse strings; and they will cash in with big interest group money in their takeover bid.
So while many pundits are ecstatic at the divisiveness shown via Iowa, I realize we need to fund raise for the democrats ‘like there is no tomorrow.’
AND while I am at it; if I ever I sing “For He’s a Jolly Good fellow Again…. shut me up or substitute “evil” for “good”
