Ok, so I didn’t watch the republican debate last night. They had a lot of nerve scheduling it against Monday Night Football. And not just Monday Night Football, but the Patriots!
So now I have to play catch up.
Here’s what I’ve heard so far. It’s been confirmed for me; Romney is a big government progressive republican. He’s dropped any pretense of Tea Partyism. He’s gone full-bore for support of beltway hack republicans. I do agree with John McRomney on one thing. Social Security is not a Ponzi scheme. It’s much worse. You must opt into a Ponzi scheme & you may also opt out at any time. It’s purely voluntary. See the difference?
Should Mitt show up at any Tea Party event, he should be booed off the stage.
Ditto for Ron Paul. He’s wacked. His stance on Foreign Policy is so far gone, it’s no longer even amusing. I can see George Washington blaming the Continental Congress for Englands’ attack on us. That’s enough of that.
I’m glad to see Perry sticking to his guns regarding Social Security. He can win this argument if he can educate the dopes out there using the Galveston Model or, as Herman Cain extolled, the Chilean Model. I still can’t support Perry largely due to his immigration stance. That just flys in the face of the Tea Party.
At this point, and I’ll probably regret this but, I’m liking Newt a whole bunch. He’s tough, smart, articulate & has all the right answers. I need to find out if he’s had a come to Jesus moment and is truly the Newt of old, or just really good actor.
I’ll have more as I get further into it.
