Who’s next to go: Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum

January 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

So who of the wannabees will drop out first? How long will Santorum’s fishy victory in Iowa boost his ego enough that he remains preaching the gospel of the heavy handed state on the national scene? When will Santorum realize that his brand of Republicanism has been stale since Bush left office, and probably before then? When will the nineties throwback Newt Gingrich come to the inevitable realization that parachute pants stand a better chance at a comeback than he does at winning the nomination in 2012?

Most importantly, when will Ron Paul have the opportunity to tear Romney to shreds once the rest of the shih tzu’s are done nipping at his heels?

I wish I had the answers to these questions, because nothing excites me more than the thought of Ron Paul finally taking the gloves off when it comes to Mitt Romney. I don’t know if he will get the chance, but it would be a wonderful sight. Could you imagine that debate? How awesome would that be? What would CNN‘s subtitle be for the debate? How about: 2012 Republican Debates: 30 years of Princple versus The Porcelain Man. Could you imagine Fox News’ headline? Decision 2012: America versus A new breed of Terrorism. Regardless of how the corporate media spins it, the debate would be just down right amazing.

Perhaps even better, would it not be sweet to see Ron Paul go head to head with Obama in a debate? Matter of fact, nothing would piss me off more than watching Mitt Romney waffle his way around Obama. There’s no way in hell Romney stands a chance at beating Obama.

In related news, Bill “magic ball” Kristol said on CSPAN that Ron Paul should leave the Republican Party. Talk about harsh words. I guess that settles it, right? Ron should just quietly go away and run as a Libertarian, right?

Look, Kristol and his ilk are nothing more than political opportunists who have some pretty interesting philosophical and political influences that I would imagine most Republican voters would find disagreeable. But then again, the Republican party has essentially been diluted to nothing more than Evangelicals and fascists, so what more do you expect? What you’re seeing here are two things: First, outright rejection of a candidate that would greatly expand the party base by a combination of disingenuous intellectuals, big money donors with a lot to lose from a RP presidency, and a media dead set on providing covers for both of these groups.  Second, these same groups would much rather have a continuation of Obama’s presidency. Don’t believe me? Why do you think Kristol is even encouraging Ron Paul in such a fashion? He’d love to see Barack Obama get reelected. And as for those big money donors, it should be pretty obvious that the military industrial complex as well as Israel is more than happy with an Obama presidency. For these people, Obama is the first choice, and Mitt Romney is nothing more than a solid back-up plan in case of an emergency.

And just so you know this, Bill, it was hard not to hear the desperation in your voice during your CSPAN interview. I can tell you’re worried. We all can.
