    The top three vote getters in NH are two moderates and an unstable old man.

    GO MITT!

    I'm pissed that he won, more pissed that he's the best we can do after the recent Bain brouhaha.

    I like it, attack Paul... Never stop.... always attack!!!! Even if the attack has little to no meaning at all, just attack!!!!

    I do wonder if Huntsman were not here if Paul would have picked up another 10%ish....

    Anyways, what other sorts of people does OP discriminate against being they believe being older gives them right of way for hate and attack?

    For the record Mitt is liberal, not moderate... Mitt would have to have conservative positions to be a conservative.

    Nothing for the rw's to celebrate. Like i said earlier, After FIVE years of campaigning, Ole Liberal Mitt's still got less than 40% and the rest are just rag-tagging along behind him. What a yawner this bunch is.

    Bottom line is that more than 60% of the Republican voters in poor down and out NH don't like any of the shills for the 1%.

    Can't blame them.

    A vote for Mitt is a vote for firing the working stiff and being damn happy to do it.

    I'm interested in seeing how Newt and the two Ricks did. The only way Mitt fails to get the nomination is if two of those three knuckleheads drop out before South Carolina. If they all did well enough to stay in then I think Mitt has this wrapped up.

    Paul's consistent placing has to be worrisome to the GOP leadership. I've noticed that Rush and Hannity are dedicating show time now to attacking him. The problem is he's doing too well to just laugh off now. I'm thinking some concession will have to be made to him in the GOP platform in the general.

    Problem is Paul has more supporters than Hannity and Rush have listeners.

    Hannity and Rush are chickenhawks and that's why they don't like Ron Paul. He won't have his finger on the button every second of the day like the other candidates will.

    And it looks like Paul has more political clout.

    I'm thinking if Paul comes in the top three in South Carolina that folks are going to have to stop outright mocking his supporters and start to acknowledge the support his ideas have inside the GOP base.

    I want to be clear, I don't think he will be the nominee, but I'm not convinced that's even his goal. I think Paul's goal is to get his ideas a public hearing and his performance so far is accomplishing that.
