NH could turn GOP race upside downSubmitted by Jane Aitken on Thu, 11/08/2007 - 06:36
In this AP story, Sidoti talks about how NH residents did not want Dole or Bush, but they preferred Pat Buchanan, whose platform was much like Ron's and who is often rooting for Ron on TV shows nowadays.
Among other things, she opines:
"Paul, a libertarian-leaning long-shot Texas congressman, could emerge as a serious contender in the "Live Free or Die" state."
And finally she admits that Huckabee lacks the money to be a serious contender:
"Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, has a network of grass-roots support but lacks money. Paul could be a force; he opposes the Iraq war, and his libertarian bent resonates here. He's running TV and radio ads and just raised $4.3 million in one day."
Shannon who is mentioned as being undecided, is a friend of mine. Without being obnoxious, I've been trying to get her to see that Huck just isn't as conservative as she might think. He got a poor score from Cato, Club for Growth and his own subjects back in Arkansas say he left them with higher taxes than ever. He seems way too establishment for me.
Yet Ron has those family values that people like Shannon desire -- pro-life and pro-family, and all without compromising his fiscal conservatism or sucking up to the establishment.
All in all, not too bad of an article.
