    Its Tuesday.

    Starting today, all hands are on deck for either Mitt Romney, or Rick Santorum in Michigan.  Its been a long time where the Republican presidential primary contest has mattered so much to one or the other candidate. Newt and Paul have no chance according to initial polling, but the statistical deadlock makes every effort toward influencing our voters that much more important. A loss here for Mitt means he will have to have to reassess his presumed plan in life, and perhaps add a "plan-B".  A win for Rick solidifies the growth of support experienced after the "beauty contests" a couple weeks ago.

    Mitt and Rick are hitting the state hard. To be sure,  surrogates are moving about as well. Including the hectic activity by Super-pacs in the near constant advertising around our local and cable news shows. Romney will be in Traverse City on Sunday, is touring the state and Santorum has already started appearing at southern Michigan spots, and there is a Susan B Anthony list Bus tour out stumping for him.

    One would expect Romney to be faring better in Michigan, his home state.  

    Especially considering all of the top name advocacy; Snyder, Schuette, Kahn (the guy who sold out to forced unionism), Richardville (the guy who has Kahn's back)Congressman Dan Benishek, 1st District, Congressman Bill Huizenga, 2nd District, Congressman Dave Camp, 4th District, Congressman Fred Upton, 6th District, Congressman Tim Walberg, 7th District, Congressman Mike Rogers, 8th District, Congressman Thad McCotter, 11th District, etc etc. etc.

    If Romney loses in Michigan, the super Tuesday event could be scary for the blueblood Rs.  It may mean there are folks are vulnerable to primary activity if running for their next terms.  It means Republican voters are not going to fall in line so easily and might be willing to look at challengers from outside the establishment prescribed choices.

    Its a good sign.

    Tuesday has started, but the voting begins here.

    Willard's "Home State"? (none / 0) (#1)
    by Corinthian Scales on Fri Feb 24, 2012 at 10:30:54 AM EST
    Egad!  What a farce that "home state" meme is.  Willard hasn't lived in Michigan since his daddy hooked Willard up with his Vietnam Mormon deferment.  Ya, Let's Go Red Sox!

    How the Repub establishment folk keep perpetuating the "home state" subterfuge is really mind boggling.

    If we don't have a moral society than does the budget really matter?

    Willard's old lady is a calculating fraud too.

    Hey peon, don't you know that $100 to Planned Parenthood was back when Willard was running to the Left of Teddy Kennedy?  How dare you bring that up now that Willard is "severely" pro-life.

    The elites do as they do 'cause the gullible thralls will vote for it.

    not that it means much, but yesterday, I endorsed Santorum.

    as I put it in my email to a reporter, "fyi - i'm onboard with Santorum.

    My main reason is that I want a brokered convention...but I also do think he'd do a good job as Prez."

    I wish he was better fiscally, but he's still better than Romney for not raising fees or taxes, and not giving up Obamacare. He's also pro-life and generally pro-2a, although could be better there. Romney signed a ban.

    This is a stop Romney vote.

    There is a line to mark that says "None of the above." I probably will opt to go home from working all night and get that extra hour or two of sleep rather then waste my time voting for one of the four used car salesmen.
    The party elites better order in large amounts of Valium, Prozac and Tums. Things prolly won't go quite as the Poison Ivy league grads have it scripted.

    Willard really is the 1%

    ...I'm also waiting to be impressed by this field.

    PAC-attacks and media spin aside, I've been doing some reading on the four "choices" we have on Tuesday while I have some down time on the road.

    Not one of them is giving me any reason to be overly enthusiastic.

    Willard will literally say anything to get elected.

    Newt's moral character leaves a lot to be desired.

    Rick needs a refresher course on Remedial Constitution 101.

    And the only person who has been consistent with their record has been Paul, but in all honesty, his position on foreign policy makes me concerned about how many Americans will need to die because of that position.

    Don't misinterpret this as a desire to see us go after every tin dictator who wears a funny hat and threatens us on their state controlled media (and them give them gobs of "aid" we'll most likely borrow from the Chi-comms to rebuild after we are done). But a leader should also be able to project to any would-be aggressors that any attack upon America/Americans will be a losing proposition on their part in the end.
