Predictions

I predict I will be on my knees Tuesday evening praying Hillary will win the NH Primary by a large margin so she can go on to be the progressive/liberal/Democrat’s nominee in the general election.

Having predicted a month or so ago on this site, NHInsider.com, Obama would win here in NH I still yearn for a Hillary/Shaheen/Lynch Democrat 2008 ticket in New Hampshire.

I think Obama will win the NH Primary because the NH Democrats depend on out of state student voters to be the tipping point in any statewide election, so a Democrat primary will have an over abundance of 19 and 20 somethings voting in an exciting primary like this whether resident liberals like it or not. The student vote has come back to bite Hillary because I believe most students, who were in grade school when her masher husband was president, have no ties that bind them to any Clinton.

But me – I do have ties to the Clintons and I want Hillary to make it to the finish line with as little disturbance as possible.

Hard core, left wing, serious Democrats want Hillary because she will be the one candidate who would rub it in the face of the Republicans who impeached their flawed hero, Bill.

But then reality sinks in.

Democrats are surging to the polls in this election cycle I hear. No wonder. We are all chanting about “CHANGE”. Even the “WAR” has dropped from the lips of the chanters in their frenzy to have it all, as in the House, Senate, and President’s office. They can taste victory. Every one is feeling dizzy with excitement.

The fly waiting in the ointment is the list of little details that will probably, most likely, sort of, have to be addressed in a general election.

Here is one.

How about when Americans come to realize what total Democrat control of the next Supreme Court appointments will be? You know at least three of the lefties will resign if that happens.

Who would the Democrats nominate? The short list that comes to my mind includes such dignitaries as Desmond Tu Tu, Dan Rather, or some beret wearer from Cesar Chavez’s Department of Agriculture. The possibilities are endless.

Talk radio will probably want to spend the next year describing Hillary’s “National Stand in Line for Health Care for Free Health Plan”. And if Hillary ducks news media, with their willing and eager support like when she ran for the US Senate in NY, her Republican opponent will have an unanswered field day on the national stage.

Hillary’s military prowess should take center stage during the run up to the general election as well. Talk about a mine field of poll and announce your plan, and poll and announce your plan, and poll and blame it on Republicans.

And then we have that soulless, screechy, nagging, chalk-on-slate voice. How on Earth do you dodge that?

Please New Hampshire – let this woman win.

Huckabee The Day After Iowa

I went to the Huckabee rally at the college in Henniker Friday, the results:

  1. 30-35% press out of about 400 people there.
  2. Lots of 30 somethings with kids in tow.
  3. Huckabee is a humble guy who shares the stage and is a natural campaigner.
  4. The college kiddies appear to still be on Christmas break.
  5. 40 year old white men should not wear dreadlocks even if it is in a Mowhawk or wrapped in a beach towel.
  6. Chuck Norris’s wife is a hottie, Chuck is a sincere campaigner and was a big hit.
  7. The more I see of the media the less I like them.
  8. NH Senator Clegg has lost enough weight he will soon be able to borrow Mike Huckabee’s clothes.
  9. Nice event, family oriented, upbeat, fun.
  10. The libs roaming around were having a tough time keeping the smug look on their faces and not looking like sore thumbs.
  11. There was not a lot of “evangelical oppression” going on as some would like voters to believe.

My only suggestions to Mike Huckabee:

  1. If only for a few seconds just put the guitar behind your head and play a few notes like Jimi Hendrix and you will seal the deal.
  2. Don’t listen to professional campaign gurus. Be yourself its refreshing.

A Victim Of Fergustance

Opportunity knocks for Republicans.

Apparently the first step in rebuilding the NH Republican Party has been taken, and by what I have thought was an unexpected source – Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen.

I may have been wrong about Fergus when I thought he would divide the Party from its base. This may seal the deal for the Republican comeback.

The beneficiaries of Fergus doing the standup thing and telling Fox News that without US Congressman Duncan Hunter and Congressman Ron Paul in the upcoming debate the Republican Party under his leadership is a no go.

Fox News is in NH for a brief time to “report” on news. The Republican Party needs the support of the real New Hampshire voters who live here and who see Congressman Duncan Hunter as the legitimate candidate he is. He is a veteran, his son is in the service in Afghanistan. Congressman Ron Paul has the finances and support of tons of young, dedicated, aggressive supporters who are web savvy, and articulate.

Talk about big tents, now is the time to prove it and Fergus has.

After 2006 the Republican Party moved out of the office on North Main Street and into their new building down the road. The old Republican office is now the home of the Reagan Legacy group whose members are dedicated, longtime, grass roots Republicans trying to effect change in the Legislature one seat at a time. There are other conservative groups in NH with offices working the same way, independently.

I have always thought, and with pretty good cause, that the NH Republican Party cared about only four things, two US Senate seats and two US House seats, and the rest of the rabble could fend for scraps until needed to protect those four positions.

Fergus has just done the right thing by stepping away from the traditional way of doing business, smack dab in front of the people he had to do it for most. This action may just wind up being a dab of the glue that can bind the different groups together.

Ron Paul 2008

As we close in on the end of another NH Primary I would say that Ron Paul is already a winner. He has shown in no uncertain terms that a man with ideas about FREEDOM can generate the millions of dollars needed to run a serious campaign for president.

I have watched many “lower tier” candidates who are not millionaires come here over the years without any real money and work hard for recognition only to have people say they will never win because they do not have the financial means to contact voters by mail, phone, radio, or TV. Ron Paul just blew that excuse out of the Republican Primary waters big time.

With the Democrats it will be different, as always, because they offer voters something for nothing like free healthcare, free college, a welfare state, and all the socialist bells and whistles. Ron Paul offers FREEDOM - as in personal responsibility.

The Republican insiders have to deal with the extraordinarily successful grassroots phenomenon. And it will only spur more like-minded candidates in the future.

Pat Buchanan showed that a man with no elected office or personal financial war chest could beat a sitting president in the NH Primary. I think that was the first shot across the bow.

Now we have Congressman Ron Paul and his supporters who are real, live residents of NH. They are not going away, from my knowledge of them.

But can they keep the inertia of this primary?

Ross Perot was a “candidate” who attracted some 19% of the primary vote only to be a spoiler and help elect the Arkansas Mafia. Perot did not have a grass roots base as Ron Paul has.

People in NH did not open their homes, raise money, make calls, and campaign for Ross Perot spontaneously and nudge him to run as happened with Ron Paul. Perot had a bank account, and insatiable ego, a dislike of the Bush’s, and a plan. He evaporated because there was no “there, there”. Good riddance.

Ron Paul is a sitting US Congressman who has bucked the Republican hierarchy all of his career, with this kind of grass roots activism and financial support the Republican Party has to deal with him – AND his new followers. If they play their cards right during and after this campaign they will get some of the change they want. It may be incremental but it will real.

The “CHANGE” Obama and the other Democrats campaign on means socialism. They can’t say it out loud.

Ron Paul can shout FREEDOM from the rooftops and now the powers that be can not ignore him.

I call that a win.
