I made myself sit down and watch the Fox News Presidential Forum and nothing has changed for me. I usually don't get very worked up about Primaries. I learned a hard lesson about that many years ago when I wasted a lot of my time and resources only to find out my vote or opinion does not count in Presidential Primaries. I will have no say in who the nominee will be thanks to powerful school board interests in Pennsylvania. Those school board interests block us from changing our primaries so our vote in the Presidential Primary is moot for their own petty parochial interests. They always tell us that they don't want to change the voting to February because it's too cold in February. That's horse apples, they don't want to change it because their budgets are scheduled to be submitted by the first of the year and that is too close to elections and voters might take issue how high their taxes are about to be raised and vote the tax and spenders out. That's reality for all you Ronulans out there posting Ron Paul signs in Thorndale and West Chester.
Anyway, if my vote did count I would go out and vote for Mitt Romney. Governor Romney is the only candidate on the Republican side that is prepared and has the stamina to go against the Clinton attack machine.
During the forums I observed the same behavior from John McCain that I have always noticed about him. There is this seething anger just below the surface that seems like at any moment he is going to explode.
As far as the other candidates are concerned. None of them seemed especially interested in being there. Fred Thompson has good ideas but he came off to me like he was saying "OK do I have to still keep campaigning?" Governor Huckabee still thinks he's a side show barker or snake oil salesman selling medicine we all know is not good for us. I don't know what happened to Rudy, it doesn't seem like it matters if he loses in New Hampshire or not. I think every vote should be gone after and Rudy is making a big mistake ignoring people that will vote for him if he went after their vote. This is going to be the third primary and he hasn't even placed in the top five yet. Rudy seems to be under the impression that he can win by going after the big States rich in delegates like Florida. That strategy is risky and serves to alienate conservative voters that have to be respected.
This is how I see things right now. Things may change later on but the only candidate I see as able to go head to head with the people that are going to stop at nothing to get elected is Mitt Romney. Make no mistake about it, Obama will eliminated by the Clinton attack machine in fairly short order. A lightweight like Obama is no match for the dirty politics that the Clinton organized crime family is capable of.
