Here’s my prediction for the 2012 South Carolina Republican primary: Gingrich Romney Paul Santorum Cain The reason I have to include Herman Cain is that Stephen Colbert is running under his name: YouTube Link => youtu.be/3UOGKO7tM34
Here are the reported Iowa Caucus results:
Romney: 30,015 votes (25%)
Santorum: 30,007 votes (25%)
Paul: 26,219 votes (21%)
Gingrich: 16,251 votes (13%)
Perry: 12,604 votes (10%)
Bachmann: 6,073 votes (05%)
Huntsman: 745 votes (01%)
Cain: 58 votes (I heard a Fox News broadcaster mention this, but haven’t seen it in a chart)
I told you from the beginning that this cycle’s selection of Republican candidates is an absolute clown show, to put it kindly.
I also asked two main questions. The first one was “Where are the broke (poor) Republicans?”. The second was “How come none of the better Republicans (Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, etc) want to run, if they think it’s going to be so easy to defeat President Obama in 2012?”.
I was previously done talking about this tomfoolery, but the last few days, the pundits have been talking about something they hadn’t mentioned this entire time…
The point of the nomination process is *NOT* to send your best and brightest, but rather to send whomever is actually WILLING TO RUN, and whomever has enough money to stay in the race.
That sucks. That’s not interesting. That’s not American Exceptionalism.
Not that I consider Herman Cain an actual Presidential candidate, but I think this Politico story => “Exclusive: 2 women accused Herman Cain of inappropriate behavior” is worth discussing.
