“Taking two positions on every issue, one on the left and one of the right, doesn’t make you a centrist. It makes you a charlatan.”
So we are now heading to New Hampshire where Newt Gingrich has already started to publish anti-Romney ads and the field has been reduced by one Bachmann (we thought we were going to lose Perry, too, but he’s still in, although doing his campaigning in South Carolina.)
Romney is going to have to move a little towards center to take New Hampshire, but he seems to have no trouble switching positions. Today John McCain endorsed him. You remember McCain… in the last Presidential election’s primaries, when they competed for the nomination, McCain accused Romney of “consistently flip-flopping on every issue.“
How things change.
My main view of the Iowa Caucus was that it was meaningless. No one came out with enough of a lead to be the official Republican challenger. The three at the top will certainly be easy pickins’ for Obama (you can come back in November and quote me on that.)
Next Tuesday is New Hampshire and that’s a winner-take-all affair. Let’s see what happens then.
