    Pre-Debate

    Pre-Debate

    I’ll be covering the debate tonight starting at 9 p.m. Eastern.  It will not be a “Live Event” but rather, me giving commentary as it goes, probably at the breaks as I have done for several other debates.

    In the meantime:

    • Newt is sliding in the polls, and now is more or less even or slightly behind Romney, the result of relentless attack ads run by Ron Paul and others against Newt in Iowa, and a ferocious attack on Newt by the mainstream conservative media.
    • Newt has not had the money to fight back, and until now has not had the well-funded SuperPACs like others.  But, Newt’s apparently getting a huge $20 million contribution from Sheldon Adelson for a SuperPAC.  This is the second pro-Newt SuperPAC announced this week.  The question is, is it too late to reverse the slide?
    • I knew those Alan Grayson ads would be used against me, but I didn’t think it would be by someone at National Review.
    • In the Wisconsin recall, supporters say they have enough signatures, well ahead of the mid-January deadline.
    • Karl has analysis and links to the Ryan-Wyden Medicare bill.  Sam Stein at HuffPo notes the plan has the White House worried because it damages the Democrats’ planned Mediscare campaign theme.
    • Maybe the yutes are onto something, they think Obama will lose.
    • The drone which the Iranian captured may have originally landed in Afghanistan.
    • Israel announces long range command.  How long is long? My guess is it’s about 1598 kilometers, and clear skies.
    • Interesting read about Newt’s meeting with “movement conservatives.”
    • This is the guy Glenn Beck said he’d vote for in a third party over Newt Gingrich.
    • Perry supporter defends Newt.
    • More to come.
    • Finally some scrutiny of Romney, of course from a foreign newspaper: “Romney aides had asked him not to speak publicly about their time together there.”  I may have a separate post on this, but not today.
    • The Gingrich Derangement Hyperbolic Outrage Disorder has infected Stephen Hayes at The Weekly Standard who goes ballistic over an interview Newt gave, terming it the nastiest attack so far by any candidate.  Really?  Weeks of cut-and-paste hatchet job anti-Newt televisions ads, the strategy of crazy I have documented here, Romney’s not so subtle dig at Newt’s conversion to Catholocism, and so on.  I think I’ll start reading DailyKos where at least I can get a fair assessment of the Republican race.

    For some unknown reason, this song seems like a good prelude to tonight’s debate (via Keith Burgess-Jackson):

    I know one thing for sure, if Romney somehow ends up getting the Nomination, I and many other Tea Party folks will NOT vote for him, but either a third party candidate, or not at all, period.

    Newt is the only one, who can effectively wipe up Obama, like a mop on the floor, but Romney is almost exactly like Obama, so where’s the difference and contrast to draw on.. Exactly, there isn’t any, they both have the same policies, programs, and agenda..  except one has a D next to their name, and one has an R next to his name..  That’s it..   A liberal Mass Gov., from the most liberal state in the Union, who implemented his own Obamacare before Obama did, is not a  conservative contrast, to the most anti-American liberal President in US history..

    Wake up people.. if there is one thing the liberals like more than a Democrat in power, it’s 2 Democrats in power..  In other words, when the candidate on either side of the political race, is of the same stripes, and agenda, then it’s a win-win situation either way for the liberal agenda.

    There is no perfect candidate, let alone another constitutional conservative Ronald Reagan, in the current field of candidates.. Newt, with his record open for all to see, has made some mistakes, but has also accomplished much in his life..And he is far more knowledgeable and coherent about the issues, and problems we face, than Romney will ever be..  So the people can decide whether or not, they want and like Newt, over the other candidates, or not, to be the next Republican Party Nominee and next U.S. President. Especially with major economic, political, social, and international world affair issues at stake, the next President will have his or her hands full.. which Newt is more than qualified to handle..  

    But with Romney, all you will be getting is a liberal Republican RINO Party establishment elitist Obama lite…  so why should you vote for Romney,  when we already have one in office now.. It’s like saying Hillary is better than Obama, because she is Hillary, and not Obama, even though they are both exactly the same politically, ideologically, philosophically as anti-American progressive liberal socialists..  give me a break.!!
