Dropping Cain; Get Ready for Newtvember

Thought I'd share my blog, with a recent post about Cain's fall and Newt's inevitable push.

Hermain Cain has undoubtedly been the most entertaining candidate in the 2012 GOP Primary Race. From his weird and creepy campaign ads to his inspiring Ode To Pizza, his rise as GOP "Frontrunner" hasn't ceased to amaze for one second.

But as the never-ending scramble by the GOP Establishment and the Mainstream Media to find a suitable Non-Ron Paul candidate to take on Mitt Romney continues, I predict that in the coming weeks we will see a fall from grace from the Herman Cain campaign. Between his non-position on abortion and his bafflingly inconsistent damage control to the recent sexual harassment claims (author's note: I largely choose to ignore this stuff other than for sheer entertainment value. It may be true, it may not be, but regardless I'd much rather go after Cain on his past association with the Federal Reserve and his support for TARP Bailouts), it seems Herman Cain is due for a big fall. The latest Rasmussen poll has him back down to 17% to Perenially Dubbed Frontrunner Mitt Romney's 41%, with Ron Paul remaining consistenly at 3rd with a solid 11%. It seems that, like Rick Perry (who seems to have now completely lost his mind) before him , Herman Cain's meteoric rise will be matched only by his meteoric fall from grace.

If The Aquila Energy Scandal Comes Out, Cain is done, until then

don't bet the farm yet partner...

He didn't keep his promise to his first wife.

Why would he keep any promise to me.

Free includes debt-free!

The only thing that will matter will be

the Iowa caucus. The media and GOP will do every possible angle to diminish Ron Paul, even if they have to infuse support behind Newt. Right now, they're getting a free ride on Herman Cain because of his unconventional style. That will wear off soon. Perry's pretty much done, as is Bachmann. But it all comes down to the people's say in Iowa. Looks like Ron is working his butt off up there, and the campaign is supposed to have a good infrastructure. The results of the Iowa straw polls bode well for Dr. Paul. Let's just hope more people keep waking up to Ron Paul and give him an early, strong postition going forward out of Iowa.

Voters Hate Newt Gingrich and Hillary Clinton the Most
James Joyner · Saturday, March 17, 2007

A new Zogby poll of likely voters finds that a majority (53%) would “never” vote for Newt Gingrich and just under a majority (46%) would never vote for Hillary Clinton.

Some other findings:

■70% of conservatives, 79% of the very conservative, and 42% of moderates say they would never vote for Clinton.
■54% of households with military connections would never vote for Gingrich, 50% for Clinton, or 46% for Gore
■Gingrich is the least popular candidate with both sexes, with 53% of both men and women saying they’d never vote for him
■42% of women say they’d never vote for Clinton, along with 51% of the men
■The least unpopular among men: Giuliani (29%), McCain (32%) and Obama (35%)
■The least unpopular among women: Obama and Edwards (both 30%), and McCain (32%)
Unfortunately, the report is poorly written and there is no information given in some categories for some candidates and no summary tables are provided. Here’s what I compiled:

Presuming these trends are not artifacts of the polling methodology, I’d say neither Gingrich nor Clinton have any shot of getting elected president. Gingrich is universally unpopular even among core Republican constituents. Clinton is polarizing, as expected, but is so unpopular among women and moderates that I don’t see how she can win.

Here you go, straight from an establishment mouth piece

"After previously peaking in May at 24.8%, Herman Cain found himself in a downward spiral. For a while, it seemed he wouldn't be able to get out of the doldrums of single digits in the Townhall.com Straw Poll and in his national numbers. That all changed this month as he surged to take in 38.3% of the vote, a net gain of 28.5 points since September. Herman Cain was far and away the big winner this month.
The next big winner was Newt Gingrich. He climbed 18.1 points to take second place with 22.6% of the vote. It was his best showing since MARCH when he took 11.75%. Gingrich bottomed out in July with 1.4% of the vote but has seen a steady increase in support since. As is true with Cain, Gingrich has also seen his national poll numbers rise. Both Cain and Gingrich have received excellent marks for their debate performances of late.
Ron Paul finally showed a chink in his armor, losing 3.5 points and finishing third. This is the first month he hasn't finished first or second since we started polling in January.
Paul's losses don't even compare to that of Rick Perry who lost an astounding 22.4 points this month to finish at 9.5%. It was far and away the biggest loss in support in the history of the Townhall.com Straw Poll. The next biggest slide was in July when Herman Cain lost an incomparable 7.6 points.
Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Jon Huntsman all lost slight support this month as well. Undecided voters were slightly more decided this month as less votes were cast for "Someone else/Undecided."

The 2012 Townhall.com National GOP Primary

Townhall.com and HotAir.com are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the largest online Republican national primary. Voting begins December 13, 2011 at 7:00 AM EST and will close on December 15, 2011 at 4:30 PM EST."

Newt and the Christmas season do not mix well

People remember the Gingrich that Stole Christmas...where Gingrich shut down government during the Christmas season.

This is how they introduced new Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to the American public in 1994.



This is perfect trivia. I laughed out loud in public.


By Mark D. Harmon

All the Whos in Whoville took little note,
some listened to fear, some didn't vote.
Little they knew that a Gingrinch did lurk.
He'd been scheming for years to do evil work.
All the Whos were surprised to find in their house,
a sly grinning rat dressed as a church mouse.
"I'm the Gingrinch," through his sharp teeth he bleated,
"You Whos must be told that hope's been defeated."

The Whos looked around in shock and dismay,
who could have dreamt up such a strange thing to say?
The Gingrinch however took little heed.
He had an agenda. It started with greed.
The Gingrinch then chortled and let out a laugh,
he bellowed and beckoned and brought out his staff.
"This is Jesse, Strom, Alphonse, Bob, Henry and Kay --
we have so much work, we must start today.
We intend to change Christmas, the whole Christmas season.
We've got a new message, we've made a new reason."

The Whos looked surprised at the whole motley crew,
but the Gingrinch insisted they knew what to do.
"Christmas" he said "will now mean so much more."
"Christmas" he said "will mean blaming the poor."
"It's their fault" he sneered "that they face gloom and doom"
"If they had any sense, they'd pick some other womb."

The Whos families held hands, they grimaced and snuggled,
they remembered how hard they had worked and had struggled.
The Gingrinch, however, blabbed on unabated.
He knew what he wanted, he knew who he hated.
"This Head Start" the Gingrinch said ever so slow,
"it may teach kids too think, it's the first thing to go."
Then he took away food stamps, job training, student loans,
He heard all the pain, Gingrinch liked to hear groans.
"Next give to the rich, though they've got lots already,
that'll keep my campaign funds rolling in steady."
"And I'm tough on crime, yes that's what I'm sellin',
excepting, of course, any S&L felon."
"And remember, I want to keep you all free.
Let's start by making you pray just like me."

All the Whos were now praying the nightmare would end,
But the Gingrinch kept planning to borrow and spend.
With each falling snowflake, his ideas were much older.
"I want bombers and missles, a really good race,
I want tanks and bazookas and lasers in space."

That Christmas in Whoville tested the spirit of Yule,
but children kept learning, despite privatized school.
Who children missed all the animals that could once freely roam,
the Gingrinch had sold off the parks they called home.
Belching pipes now polluted the water and air,
the poor, sick and old couldn't pay for health care.

Yet on Christmas eve, stars shone through the haze,
all the Whos ventured out with a determined gaze.
They held hands and sung out "Who, Who, Hooray!"
"Der flugel, der flugel, callou and callay."
"Welcome Christmas to Whoville, this dark Christmas day."
"Sing of cheer to all Whos, sing of Whos who stop fearing,
The Gingrinch is going, election day's nearing."

You have nailed it, Marc

Sad but true.

Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!
