Republican Facade Cracking
“People are going to look at who comes in second and who comes in third,” said Gov. Terry Branstad. “If [Mitt] Romney comes in a strong second, it definitely helps him going into New Hampshire and the other states.”
The story they are floating is that if Ron Paul wins, it will be a result of trickery among D's and I's who vote for him in the caucus and then vote for President Obama in the General.
OK, that is a model that works. Rush pushed for the same thing in recent years.
But, is it reality? Will Ron Paul win only as a result of trickery, or is it genuine?
If he wins Iowa, I guess we'll know as we go forward into other elections. By Super Tuesday, we'll know.
But the R facade is failing, The mask of the pretty young gal is cracking, and we can see the evil old hag beneath, fangs and all.
If Ron Paul is your candidate, I would suggest you go right now and give him a few bucks. He needs to stomp the snot out of the field in Iowa to build momentum and overcome the spin.
The ugly, simple truth is that to win in politics you need cash. This has always been so, and always been the case.
Here's the story from Iowa.
