Iowa


You know, I'm kinda hooked on watching the caucus results tonight.

For the GOP, it's Huckabee pulling off the win. (And, for the life of me, I don't know why the Rush and Sean Hannity's of the world hate him so much. But I'm glad this win will drive them crazy.) And I didn't know Ed Rollins had been brought in to help on Huckabee's campaign.

For the Dems, with about 70% of the vote in, Obama has a growing lead over Hillary and Edwards who are pretty much tied. For most of the night it's been a virtual three way tie.

Good stuff.

I am thoroughly enjoying watching the beginning of the end of the pig in a pants suit.

I think in the history of the primary system, only once has a winner in Iowa actually gone on to win the presidency.

Rush did not particularly like W during the first election theft of 2000 because W used the phrase "Compassinate Conservate." Rush changed handily when Dooby got the nomo. The Neocons would support anybody that was running on the Repub ticket. Including but not limited to: Adolph Hitler, Satan, Judas, Jack the Republican Ripper, Atilla the Huney Republican, Nixon, John Birch, David Duke, Strom, Darth, Charles Manson, Dracula the Impaler, or any other like Conservative thinkers. Damn, that broad brush! Hell, git me a 6 foot roller! They is all colored deep down the same anyway! If the right foot shoe fits so good.....

Robert Byrd votes for every tax hike that comes his way and brings home more pork than any Senator in history. Aren't weenies made from pork?

Not one of the annointed ones will address anything that will really help us. Simple things like getting the govt out of health care, education, and spending money on a budget that services the debt and doesn't mandate ridiculous and freedom stiffiling social experiments and corporate subsides. 27 years ago a man said government is not the solution but the problem, he was right. If anybody can name and logically defend one federal program other then the GI Bill that does what it was intended and designed to do without creating more frustration, dispare, and turmoil then existed before its implementation I'm willing to support a mainstream candidate. Until then Ron Paul, gets my $ and support.

Obama lost any consideration when asked how he would pay for his Universal Health Care plan. His response was preventive medicine and getting fat people on a diet! If there are not enough savings from getting fat people on diets to prevent disease, he will use the Bush tax cuts to pay for it!

Young voters came out in Iowa to vote for him and independents. If he wins the nomination, I may just stay home in November depending on who wins the Republican nomination.

Right now, I think voting in the Republican Primary to send Phil King home and voting for the Mayor of Weatherford in the November election is the best way to make a difference at the local level.

Hey, where are all the Ron Paul people at today? Are you all weeping because your boy got beat down?

Here's an honest question:

Put the labels aside for a moment: Do you all think that there are well-meaning people who try to take office to do some good, but when they get there they realize that the only way they can get anything done is to "play ball?"
It seems to me thatthe ones who win are always part of "the machine" whether it's Democrat or Republican. I think that's why Ron Paull has so much appeal to people - but he has no chance of winning - because he sounds too honest.
Heaven help our country...

8:28 - good points. They are all alike bottom line.

Another thing to really consider is the spouse. Is Obama's wife ready for all that? John Edward's wife is battling cancer. How focused would her husband be as President?

Hillary Clinton is the only Democratic candidate that really shows the grit to put up with anything to get to the top, including a womanizing husband. Bill will tag along like a good puppy dog and she will use him to the hilt.

I think that's why a lot of women won't vote for her. She's mean.

But maybe that's what we need in a President.

This whole caucus thing is manufactured news by the media. It really is much ado about nothing.
There are only about 1.9mm registered voters in Iowa and only about 26% are democrats. Even with all the publicity generated by being the first caucus, only 10% of the voters attend the caucus. Obama is getting alot of bang for his buck considering fewer than 20,000 people voted in the caucus for him. The fact is, the 24hr news channels have nothing better to do, so we are inundated with coverage about a very minor event.

Something the press won't say that spells disaster for Hillary babe ... she was beaten in a state that is 98% white by a black man with a Muslim name!

However, I think the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary are pure B*****it!! Iowa has 3 million people, renking 30th. New Hampshire has 1.2 million and ranks 41st. Who cares what they vote on anyhow?

There is no cross-ection of thinking in those states that could change anyone's vote and sure as hell not in Texas, California, Florida or New York. It's all a bunch of media hype that really means nothing except a big payday for the press.

2:57 Are you saying we need a bitch in the oval office??? Of course, I suppose it's not very hard for Hilary to be tougher than Silky and Yomomma.

9:58 -- You bet your bippy that many Republicans (if you can define "Neocon," I'll concede the use of that word) would vote for any of the Republican candidates over any of the Democrat candidates.

None of the Republicans is perfect, but none of the Democrats is any good.
