We are getting a message from Iowa. The polls there are favoring Ron Paul and I think that message to Washington is that you have gone so far to the left, we need to go just as far to the right to balance things out.
The danger in this slant towards Paul is that it will encourage him and if he doesn’t get the Republican nomination, he will. run as independent and split the rights votes enabling what’s his name to win re-election.
Of course if he were to win the nomination, we will lose the election because the middle and moderates will not vote for him and will stay home.
The only good that might come from this is that maybe the pols will get the message that they better start bending this country back to the center at least.
