“Anyone but Mitt”??

So, it’s “anyone but Mitt”, eh? Let’s look at what we got: Gingrich as “frontrunner”? Considering his comparison to Cain, with all his personal problems – which forced Cain to bow out – how can Newt hold on to this sudden surge in the polls?  With two affairs and failed marriages it’s hard to believe that people are going to give Newt a pass on this when Cain could not get one … regardless of the fact that the Mainstream media seems to be doing just that.

The comparison between Gingrich and Romney holds no stark contrast.  It’s more like looking at twins considering they are both huge Flip Floppers !! Since all the information regarding Romney’s flips have come out he’s declined heavily in the polls. And Newt should meet the same fate as the information regarding his flip flops becomes more widely known.  That is being helped by Ron Pauls new “attack” ad. Which seems a bit out of character for the Congressman but understandable when taking into account Newts machinations to keep Ron Paul from winning election to Congress when Paul had decided to return to the political arena.  What is disturbing about Newts flip flops compared to Mitt’s is that the flips are much more recent.

As I watched the news today with all the talk about where Cain’s supporters were going to go – particularly in light of the “anyone but Mitt” condition – I heard Santorums name mentioned. Not one mention of the only other candidate with double digits in the polls: Ron Paul. Rick Santorum tied with Michelle Bachman at 6% whereas Ron Paul took 2nd with 16%.  The talking heads went on and on about how Cains supporters were looking for someone that wasn’t “main stream” and didn’t fit the “status quo”, someone “outside the box”. And there were, of course, the many mentions of the “Tea Party” as has become common these days.

The media states that Herman Cains supporters do not want “more of the same”.  Romney represents that “same ol’ song and dance” that has been strangling them for decades.   At first, Gingrich seemed like a good alternative.  But after being reminded of Newts true stance on many of the important issues he falls far short of being someone “outside the box” and resonates a tune more akin the “status quo”.  Even Rick Santorum falls into that niche very nicely.

“What about the lovely Michelle Bachman?”, you inquire?  It’s nothing personal … but I think her shrill and whiny voice is the biggest turn off.  It’s hard to fathom this woman as a strong leader. As someone that will do what must be done to protect the borders and the security of the nation.  As easy going as Ron Paul demonstrates himself to be, you might be inclined to think the same of him.  Have no fear in this regard.  Even though the MSM reiterates the same old accusation of Paul being an isolationist – which is far from the truth – there is no need to fear that, as President, Ron Paul would be too timid to take necessary military action.  He was, after all, a military man. (Note: Paul is supported by more military personnel than all other candidates COMBINED.)

So, where are all the Cain supporters going to go?  Isn’t it obvious?  They are jumping on the Ron Paul bandwagon.  Congressman Paul has been an “outsider” his entire political career.  The Congressman has never wavered in his position on the issues for the last 30 plus years and has demonstrated that not only in speech but by his record.  This is a man of integrity.  And that resonates well with Cains supporters and all self proclaimed Tea Party activists (which were born from Congressman Pauls 2008 Presidential bid).

Will Iowa  and other early primary voting states hold a surprise for the GOP and the nation?  Will we see an end to the Gingrich surge and a rise of the “Limited Government” Libertarian Congressman from Texas?  All signs seem to point in that direction.
