Reflecting on The Iowa Caucuses

The vetting process of the Republican candidates is taking its normal course. The process is supposed to reveal as much about each candidate as possible because we are going to elect the person who will be the next President of the United States — the person who will sit in the most powerful office in the world.

Last night’s Iowa caucus results have helped to narrow the field, and that is a good thing because now conservative voters can begin to coalesce behind one solid, conservative candidate – Rick Santorum.

What made Santorum’s rise to fame so amazing is that Mitt Romney beat Santorum by only eight votes even though Romney’s SuperPAC spent $3.4 Million and Santorum’s only spent $537,200 .


Will The Republican Party Survive Past 2012?

Will the Republican Party survive this election cycle? Probably. Should they? Not if after everything they have done so far in the primary, they bring in a ringer candidate. At the very least, they should see a large falling off of membership as a new party emerges.

Why? Well consider that Romney started as the front runner. How did that happen? Who was for him? He didn’t do all that well in the last race. Then consider the coverage that various candidates got. There were some candidates we didn’t know existed until the debates started. Wouldn’t it be a good thing if a Party was up front and let you know all your options from the start? Let’s face it; the media does what the Party says.
