- Reaction score
Iowa straw polls. Paul came in second.
I expected Bachman and Paul to come in first and second. Bachman probably gained a lot of votes because Iowa is her home state. So the fact that Paul came so close to winning is telling. Not to discredit Bachman of course, but an interesting point to make I think.
Also interesting is that both Paul and Bachman are members of the house, not governors. The last time a sitting member of the house won the presidency was in 1880 with James Garfield. I think it is time we elect another congressman as president.
Pawlenty in third? That is a surprise to me, but it was a distant third. Newt is finished...he lost to write ins. That proves his campaign is over.
Carl Cameron being very favorable and respectful in his words about Paul, calling him a real contender now.
Hopefully this leaves a bad taste in the mouths of those who simply want to parrot the "unelectable" nonsense, because they seem to be stuck in 2008.
Tissue for what moron? I dont have a leg in this, nor does anyone else. The only thing this will help with is their ability to get contributions. I dont dislike any of the candidates nor have I decided who I like the most so bite me.
