Michelle Bachmann and Ron Paul polled 57% of the vote at the Iowa Straw Poll! A big deal? Maybe! Or maybe not! Neither will be the ultimate nominee of the Republican Party, so what is the message? Loud and clear, Hawkeyes sent a message to the country that they are fed up with big, intrusive government. When a Libertarian and a Tea Party supporter can overwhelm their opponents by such a wide margin, it is a flashing neon light…..if politicians are paying attention!
Giddy progressive liberals are chuckling to themselves! Goody, goody! A Bachmann victory means that the GOP has swung so far right that Obama can sweep back into the White House easily! A 67-year old antique dealer in Des Moines, who voted for Bachmann, was asked if she would vote for Rick Perry (or any other Republican) and she responded, “I will crawl over broken glass to vote for him. Because I am done!” The liberal left has discounted the frustration of America by trying to demonize the Tea Party followers. Hard-core conservatives are but a small ripple of the wave that is swelling against Obama. The left is too arrogant to open their minds to the swinging of the political pendulum. Stay in denial……that is an all-to-comfortable place for the left!!
P.S. Say goodbye to Pawlenty….and it won’t be long before Santorum and Newt throw in the towel. Huntsman’s last stand will be in New England!
P.S.S. Rick Perry and Mitt will battle it out for the nomination!
P.S.S.S. All bets are off if Christie decides to wade into the presidential pool!
