Doug Wead: Pawlenty is in a Good Position to take Iowa

Please don't kill the messenger... He's a Ron Paul fan as you will read (or most likely already know). His article gives some very interesting insight. I like how he points out that Huntsman would dilute the Romney vote, but he warns how Pawlenty could do better than most might expect in Iowa...

Here's the article...

pawlenty will fail

pawlenty is a regulation socialist...you can hear it in his language as he describes his family as "working class"......we know what "working class" means.

Tim who?

...I mean really! No one has ever heard of this guy. Is there a "DailyPawlenty"? Let's face it people..we are the only Conservative Game in town. Let's try really hard NOT to screw it up!

Hasn't Dr. Paul

been meeting with/talking to these groups already for months? It appeared that he did, besides I think things are different this time around. Religion is always important, but the economy may trump it with many voters, especially since Dr. Paul is clearly a principled believer in God.

This is interesting, although Doug Wead only cites one poll and

doesn't say which one it is. If it's true that 60% of Iowa caucus-goers are born again's, I find it interesting that Obama won the state. He supported the ethanol subsidies for the corn farmers so the economy must be a very strong factor.


Jimmy Who? meets Timmy Who?

Who was it that said "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people"?

H.L. Mencken said that

H.L. Mencken said that

He also said...

"The men the American public admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth."
H. L. Mencken

Sounds familiar

It's true...

Pawlenty was at my library in IA Friday.

People here aren't hating him... Tim Pawlenty has a serious chance, and the Republican groups I'm sitting in with aren't hating Ron Paul, but they kind of condescend him with how much they talk about how much their kids and grandkids love that Ron Paul.

How do we appeal to social conservatives who like Ron Paul for getting their young'ns to be interested in politics, but not enough to actually research him?

My response would be

either you support the constitution, or you don't (only sometimes). That distinction is significant, the implications are profound. If leaders followed Ron Paul's example, those young'ns wouldn't be faced with $14T in debt. and they could prosper in a steaming economy.

My response would be..well

My response would be..well THIS generation sure has made the wrong choices..maybe we should listen to them and find out why..
