New Hampshire Primary: Round 2 - Nothing for Granite

OK Kiddies. Round TWO
It's TWO days before the Primary, we already have Clinton having a meltdown moment during the debate, O'Really getting smacked down by the Secret Service, Obama jumping 15 Points in damned near every poll and McCain edging above Romney in Romney's backyard [or backyaad, as it were].

Tonight at 8, Fox runs the Republican debate without Dr. Paul because coughtheydon'tlikehimcough he didn't have the poll percentage required and the RNC showed some balls by pulling out of the debate as a sponsor. NOW, if the other candidates would show some balls and tell Fox that "they don't call the shots and it's everyone or no one" we might see something. But I am guessing that won't happen.

Someone grab the hammer and ring the bell. It's SHOWTIME.

I believe McCain can wrap this thing up tonight (the NH Primary, that is), if he has the cajones. First time he hears his name, he protests the Fox decision to exclude legitimate candidates from the debate without good cause, and walks off the floor. Any GOP votes he loses he gains five-fold from indies. I'm not sure any other candidate could pull it off.

I don't think that Hillary had a meltdown moment at all. On the contrary she showed frustration for the empty rhetoric that so far Obama's message for change has been all about. It was about time, so far she had been way to robotic for my taste.

I was divided between Hillary and Edwards but after that debate I am all for Hillary, although things are looking pretty uphill for her. I am very happy though, to see such a great group of candidates. If Obama wins the nomination, he will count with my enthusiastic support.

I would be splitting hairs if I was a Republican, what a lame and sinister bunch. Only Paul talks with some sense, but only when it comes to certain aspects foreign policy, as for all other issues he is as much of a maniac as the rest.

Biggest eye opening stat from Iowa race was that Obama pulled in more 18-25 yr olds than all over-60's voting. I have been dismissing this guy but that stat makes one stop and think, if he can do it in the general election, he would be unstoppable. I think Clinton is through at this point. She has made a big mistake in surrounding herself with old Clinton Admin hacks in a year the voters are ready to push everyone "old" out and go for everyone "new".

If McCain is not nominated, there is no way the GOP will keep the Whitehouse. Romney has now lied three times on the record (claiming he was an avid hunter at an NRA convention when in fact he had never fired a gun, claiming his dad marched with MLK, and then last night, claiming he had never accused McCain of being in favor of "amnesty" when he does it all the time), Guiliani fucked his girlfriend on government-paid-for junkets while wife and kids stayed home, Thompson is the biggest dud in history, Ron Paul is now being called a "communist" by the Right Wing Nut Job Set, and Huckabee will never score shit anytime he is running outside the Bible Belt. The GOP better get smart, soon.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I don't know shit about politics but I can assure you Obama will win.
People want change and that means those on the fence will vote Dem. Female voters are not voting for Hillary. Like Kennedy, they are voting with their hot, sweet pussy and going for the sexy guy, Black Stallion Obama(Edwards is gay). Whatever! They all talk about change but only a fool would believe. Status quo.
