Rick Perry Out—to endorse Newt

Perry dropped a political bomb after stating that he would go forward in S. Carolina has dropped out of the race and plans to endorse Newt Gingrich rather than Rick Santorum.  Perry has been urged to drop out of the race so that conservatives could rally around anyone but Mitt Romney.  Santorum appears to have high marks for being the best or true conservative candidate.

Rick may even prove more electable than Newt.  Rick needs a really good showing in this SC race to pull ahead of Mitt.  Mitt has too much money.  His pocket change is 8 million in the Caymans where most people don’t have an extra 800 dollars laying around. 

The Romney Runaway Race

Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primary with more than ten points. Congrats to you. I’ve made more than one prediction about Mitt.  In one I said why Mitt will run three times.  Partly because I predicted he would win the nomination at least 3 months ago.  Then I didn’t want him to win. 

I have endorsed Obama for a second term.  Romney and his family is just too much like a dynasty in the making.  And yes I do have reservations about the Mormon invasion.  I really do.  And not against the religion so much but what precedent this sets for our country.  I think Perry and Newt are finished and so is Hunstman and Bachman badly beaten by the guy pack leaving Santorum and Paul.  It will be down to these three soon enough.  Perry was his own worse enemy.  I think he should have never gotten into the race.  He was listening to the media and he believed the hype about his chances against Mitt in the anybody but Mitt heyday.  Well that day has come and gone and Mitt is gaining momentum. 

Can the also-rans knock Mitt off his perch I doubt it.  The rich will run this country once again. 

The New Hampshire Horse Race

English: Governor Mitt Romney of MA

Mitt prevails

We have new frontrunners this time around.  Huntsman is not leading the race but he’s in it this time.  Mitt Romney has a commanding lead.  Then there is Ron Paul will he breakaway from the pack. 

Newt seems to be discounted goods these days but he can make a comeback or surge again in the polls.  When the pacs get done with Mitt who will be the last man standing?

Tonight’s winner: Romney; Huntsman; Paul

I predict a three-way tie

, U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania.

Saint Rumi 🙂

The reporting precincts this far have a 3-way tie.  It may not hold and somebody will be declared a winner. I can’t help but predict a three-way tie that is statistically tied, meaning within one or two points.

I am not surprised that Saint Rumi or Rick Santorum has surged in the polls.  In a way he the Obama conservative for the GOP.  I mean except for losing many of his races he is about as inexperienced as Obama was when he ran for office.

Santorum may not be a winner and if he’s not a winner at heart then that’s a problem.  He can come out of his losing doldrums by winning or placing second in the next three contests.  Of course it’s winner take all in South Carolina.

If Rick Perry weren’t so, Texan, he would be surging in the polls too.  Perry surged before he even opened his mouth.  Just by getting in the race because the GOPers were so anxious for the “not-Romney” candidate they latched onto Perry.  Now that he has opened his mouth the crowds have gone away.

Top tier: Mitt Romney; Rick Santorum; Ron Paul is what it looks like now.  Who will pull ahead of the pack of contenders (my word) ? Who knows?

Celina Cass: Body Found in River Stepfather Suspected

While there is no cause of death it is not believed to be criminal because of where her body was found.  She was reported missing on July 26, she was 11, and not posing in provocative glamour magazines.

Divers found her body late Monday morning near a hydroelectric dam that spans the Connecticut River between Stewartstown and Canaan, Vt., and removed it from the river Monday evening, said New Hampshire Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young.

“We have brought Celina home, obviously not the way we wanted to bring her home,” said Ms. Young, her voice breaking with emotion.

Authorities had said that Celina, who lived with her older sister, mother and stepfather a mile from the Canadian border, was last seen at a computer around 9 p.m. on July 25 and was gone the next morning. Police said there was no sign of a struggle, and there was no indication she ran away or that someone took her. http://www.europaplus.tv/2011/08/missing-new-hampshire-girl-celina-casss-body-found-in-river/

I like Michelle Bachmann

http://www.tnr.com/article/politics/89944/new-hampshire-debate-michele-bachmann We need a woman in the fray to keep the men honest.  She’s a real contender in my book.  I mean she makes Sarah look silly but why compare them? I like them both but Michelle is stronger let’s put it that way. Note that she has double letters in both her last name and her first name.  Something that Palin does not have.  I think it was said that most if not all POTUS had a double consonant in the last names…always.  She has two N’s like Kennedy did.

“The New Hampshire Debate: Michele Bachmann’s Surprisingly Mature Performance” from The New Republic:

“I introduced the repeal bill to repeal Dodd-Frank because it’s an over-the-top bill that will actually lead to more job loss.” In fact, when the Tea Party came up in a question, Bachmann immediately announced that she was the chairman of the Tea Party caucus on Capitol Hill. Still, Bachmann knew from her years as a cable TV green room regular how to command the headlines—she became the first White House dreamer in memory to declare their presidential candidacy in the middle of a debate.

Pawlenty to Christiane: “Any dufus can go to Washington”

“Why does Ron Paul have such a dufus look on his face? I no like him. But I think I like Pawlenty.”  Heloise wrote that comment  @BC 05/06/11 10:01 am on Dave Nalle‘s (political editor of BC) liveblog of the GOP debate, which I did not watch. So for those of you who think that blogcritics and Heloise are unread and unwashed bloggers–you wrong.
 
Here’s what I wrote then:  Why does Ron Paul have such a dufus look on his face? I no like him. But I think I like Pawlenty.  And today Tim to Christiane said “Any dufus can go to Washington.”
 
I knew I said dufus or doofus, (they are both accepted spellings) which is a colloquial term that means “stupid person” but I did not realize I said I did like Pawlenty.  Who would I pair him up with? Maybe Perry or Romney.
 
I want to know “who the hell you calling dufus?”
 
But I question that Pawlenty was speaking of Obama in that statement.  I think he was speaking of those who have put or planning to put their hats in the ring.  That would be only GOP folks as the Dems have Obama. So maybe he was talking about Obama.  But Obama is anything but a doofus or dufus IMO.  He has way too much charisma to be called or fit the mold of a stupid person.  I mean no dufus can raise a billion dollars from supporters.  So who  the hell was Tim calling dufus? 
 
I think two white men is a tried and true formula.  One that works even though many aspire to put a woman on the ticket.  They act as weight on the other contenders (my word) for candidates this year.

Donald Trump is taking credit for calling President Obama out on his birth certificate.  Trump forced Obama’s hand and it is now out and about. Trump is touring New Hampshire the state with the first primary race.

I never doubted he was born here but I do doubt that the parents were legally married.
