Do you think it’s getting a little boring always hearing how the race will be changed…and then it doesn’t. Rick Santorum (and Romney) ‘winning’ Iowa was definitely a little tardy, Ron Paul and Jon Hunstman way back in 2nd and 3rd place (behind Romney), Newt Gingrich winning S.C. (over Romney), N.G. losing Florida (to Romney), Paul really losing Nevada (to Romney), Missouri is being staked out by Santorum (against Romney), R.P. working the Maine cacuses to win (in Romney’s backyard), N.G. working in M. Bachmann’s state (while denouncing Romney), and Colorado (something-or-other with Romney). Yea, definitely said a lot of Romney because there is a lot of Romney in the polls, money, time, media, and everything important to winning an election. I thought that the Democratic primary in 2008 was really great because the two sharpened each other for the better without being too nasty. In this Republican primary, N.G. should get out with his bombastic statements and give it to someone like R.P. or R.S. who both have my respect if he really just wants to beat Romney. The only thing that is definitely down is turnout in all states (and don’t include Iowa because there was no Democratic race). I have not heard anything substantive from the candidates, except maybe from Paul and Santorum. Romney is a been-there-done-that candidate who is so boring that he’ll beat Obama by pure boredom. Like I’ve told many people, if the leader of America was a chief executive, then Romney should be the president; however, the president is also the head of state and needs to also inspire the people they govern and have something better than a (I’ll give it to him) great resume.
