New Year’s Eve Open Thread

What’s going on tonight? The final DMR poll shows Romney 24, Paul 22, Santorum 15, Gingrich 12, Perry 11, Bachmann 7. However, the poll was conducted over four days and the final two days of the poll showed Romney 24, Santorum 21, Paul 18, Gingrich 12, Perry 11, Bachmann 7. So what that means is that Santorum was at roughly 9% the first two days of the poll and 21% the final two days of the poll. The story isn’t the topline but the trend (it also means that Ron Paul was at 26% the first two days of the poll and 18% the final two days). It appears that that Revolution has run out in Iowa and it’ll be close race between Santorum and Romney for Iowa.

In case you missed it, long-time commentator Al B. provided us with an incredibly useful chart detailing the schedule, filing deadlines, and the delegate selection method for all GOP primaries/caucuses. This chart illustrates how the Governor will need to become a candidate very soon if she really is reconsidering and wants to go into the convention with more delegates than any other candidate..

The Governor pretty much slammed the field in this Washington Post feature that asked her, Haley Barbour, Mitch Daniels, and Herman Cain what they would be doing if they were campaigning for President.

The Virginia AG is intervening in the Virginia GOP primary ballot fiasco. Isn’t the compromise solution just to allow write-in votes?

    Tony Lee Tweet:

    ‘Nothing happened when people like Glenn Beck mentioned Santorum. When Palin spoke positively of him, everyone started to pay attention."

    • wisetrog

      lol. don’t mention that or the neurosis of beck will only increase.

  • MurphycatII

    At least Gingrich gave an acknowledgement to Sarah Palin and really to her supporters, i.e. us. That is better than the other candidates.   I give him credit for it.  Was it just for show, is it because he is desperate? I am not in his heart so do not know the answer to that.

    Is the "establishment" not the crony capitalism we are against? There is a lot of "establishment" money being spent to beat Gringrich.  That money is having its effect.  Is it not that "establishment", exactly what we and Sarah Palin are against?  Maybe the "establishment" thinks Newt is on our side, to a greater extent than we do!

    • Guest

      No, Santorum has acknowledged Palin also.  Gingrich and Santorum are just fishing for votes.
      Stop pushing Newt on this pro Palin site..  He is the epitome of everything Palin is against.

    May all of you be blessed with a Happy and Healthy New Year!

    None of this will matter once Sarah enters the race….

    You betcha, Ian and all the best wishes to you in the coming year!
    Please allow me to reiterate my takeaway from the Iowa Poll results: the race remains volatile with 41% of likely caucusgoers who say they could still be persuaded to change their minds. VOTE ROGUE lives on and we work harder. Would C4P consider coming on board to give us a louder voice?
     Thank you for all that you do!

    Happy New Year to all!

    They should allow write ins in South carolina too.

    A post from P4A about 3 weeks ago, but it seems appropriate for good cheer on New Year’s Eve.

    Fellow posters, I am a great fan of poetic justice and am always looking
    for the irony in any situation.  It is just the way my brain works.

    without further ado, I wish to address these comments to our First
    Family in Waiting – the Bush family of Texas.  More specifically, I wish
    to address the men of that clan.

    Gentlemen, one of these days
    soon,  when you have completed your machinations to give us Jeb in 2016
    and are sitting around contemplating your navel, I suggest you also

    The tip of that
    compass points NORTH to ALASKA – to the woman the Matriarch of your clan
    attempted to defame about a year ago.  It points to the person the
    American people
    believe tells us the truth of our situation.  It points to the home of Todd and Sarah Palin.

    it  possible that simple Alaskan housewife be not so simple after all? 
    Once she saw the tip pointing at her, could she have taught the compass
    to multi-task? 

    After all, women be the original multi-taskers.  We men just recently decided to name the concept and claim it for our own.

    again, maybe the American people have decided to grace you with their
    opinion of the matter.  Perhaps it is you that they think should either
    stay home or bring the pompoms to our rallies as we go about the
    business of cleaning up the mess your ‘compassionate conservatism’ and
    spendthrift habits helped create.

    You may want to give your
    Governor a call.  He is a good crony capitalist, and for the right price
    he will give you a few pointers on how to shake your pompoms.

    you return home from work this afternoon, check the trees in your
    backyard and open the door to your coop.  Gentlemen, your chickens are
    coming home to roost.

    This was just posted in the previous open thread, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I am scheduled to be on Steve Bannon’s show tomorrow at 4:30 central time.  I’m set to do at least one 15 minute segment, and possibly two.  We’re getting more exposure.  Let’s keep this going.

    Happy New Year.

    • Maria Buss

      • senator20526

        The news ticker on Fox has John Boehner being primaried by a tea party candidate……yes

  • Hyman Roth

    John Boehner and Mitt Romney are NOT what the tea party fought for in 2009 and 2010!

    In 2012, the COMMON-SENSE CONSERVATIVES take over!

  • poljunkie

    Raisin’ a glass to better days in 2012.

    Hoping all that’s good comes your way.

    Happy New Year!

        But do you have your leg up? 


        • ToddPA

          NOT YET!! HAHAHAH!!

        With coke or on the rocks?….LOL..

  • misterlogic0013

    After Ron Paul wins Iowa..the establishment will order up some transportation to Alaska as fast as they can, if they haven’t already.
     A Ron Paul,s win will shatter the Romney..Sarah Palin knows Paul will show strong results.. The Republican Party will go to Sarah Palin to calm things. With her they have everything.
      I know its to easy. Right ?  Less is more.. Sarah knows what she is doing trust her.. She knows she needs the establishment, the establishment soon will know they need Sarah Palin..  

    • wisetrog

      Actually no, Ron Paul winning Iowa would validate Romney in the rest of the states and improve his chances. That’s y Romney is content to let paul stay in the lead.

    • barracuda43

      Romney loves Ron Paul doing good.He has replaced Bachman as his lead dog!

  • Maria Buss

     I think I posted on the wrong thread so- am doing it here:I can’t wait for the ball to drop….It’s only 8:20 p.m. CT here, a long way to countdown!  Ex- can you do something about it please?                                                                                                                          

    • exodus2011


      Our Ball dropped more than 20 hours ago
