The Republican winnowing is in full swing.
As predicted here, Fred Thompson, who never seemed to enjoy campaigning, is gone. Duncan Hunter is gone. And Rudy Giuliani is soon to go as he is collapsing in Florida, New York, New Jersey, and nationally.
The race is now a two-man race: the media’s fave, John McCain, and Mitt Romney, who is becoming the default conservative candidate.
Most conservatives detest McCain. They’re not in love with Romney but they’ll support him if only to stop McCain.
To watch the liberal media pump up McCain’s campaign is a disgusting sight. They make no effort to hide their pro-McCain bias.
Now they will try to destroy Romney in order to help McCain. The problem with that is the more the media hates you, the more the right likes you!
Florida next Tuesday is a huge contest because it is a test of McCain in a primary where only republicans can vote. So far — like 2000 — McCain only wins GOP primaries when independents and Democrats can cross over and vote in a GOP primary.
Romney has the Jeb Bush machine working of him plus tons of money. The polls show these two tied - and tonight’s debate will have a big impact.
Huckabee is broke and can’t expand his base from the religious right and not all of them support him.
Giuliani is toast. Perhaps the worst run campaign of all time. What arrogance! What an ego!
Ron Paul makes his points. But he is mired at best at 10 percent.
Make no mistake: McCain must be stopped. If he were to be the GOP nominee, he would ruin what’s left of the Republican Party, and he would damage conservatism, too. If he were president, we should all fear for the country. He is dangerous. He cannot be allowed to control the executive branch.
What a mess we are in!
