Most of the votes are in for New Hampshire….the first test of the voters likes or dislikes….Will Mitt be the man? Will Santorum sneak into 2nd place? Is Paul for real? What about Huntsman? And where the Hell is Newt? I will attempt to answer all your questions on this vote and maybe some you did not know you wanted to ask…..
The final poll was…..Romney with 33%, Paul with 20 and Huntsman with 13……how telling were the polls in New Hampshire?
At 8 pm ET the polls closed on New Hampshire and by 8:30 pm ET Romney was declared the winner…Paul second and Huntsman 3rd……and by 8:45 pm ET sane people turned to TCM and Dr. Strangelove…..people like me spent the evening listening to the media tell us just how important New Hampshire was and how it will effect the rest of the race…..the truth is, in the grand scheme of things they are not that important except for all the cash that is spent and all the media spin….now a days the MSM does not speculate anymore because they do not want to get caught flat footed and lose viewers…..
And so far, none of the candidates have said they would drop out, even Perry who got in the neighborhood of 1% is gonna stay and duke it out in South Carolina….which may be his Alamo and last stand……
Mitt’s victory speech was uninspiring…….it sounded insincere, shallow and memorized….is there a book for candidates with one liners they can use in their speeches? I have not, that I can remember, heard a candidate that is less inspiring than Mitt…..
On to South Carolina and the next media circus and Mitt may be one step closer to being crowned….I think that South Carolina will be a loss for Mitt and Florida will be the real test….but who the Hell knows?
