If this keeps up, he’ll get my tea party vote from the heart of California’s conservative Central Valley!!
Newt or Santorum. Either one is fine by me!!
We have a republic to save!!
I hope there are enough red blooded conservatives to stop the Dems from crossing over and voting for Romney. I do not think it’s fair for them to vote Romney in june so they can vote Barack in nov. :(
Agreed - I'm happy to see them duke it out and even join on the ticket - just as long as Romney doesn't succeed with his "divide and conquer" strategy. If, as the latest poll suggests, Santorum is indeed competitive with Romney in California, that is very good news indeed.
Nice post, Jim!
If people look real closely, they might be able to see a fat lady in the crowd slowly making her way to the stage. She’s not singing yet, but she does appear, hopefully, to be making her way to the stage.
Thank you, Newt, for your hard work for our country. I appreciate it. But I’ve been a Rick Santorum fan for a long time. I think that the Michigan and California polls are very encouraging.
I don’t like to predict, for I am neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, and my predictions usually stink. But I will say this: The last poll in Ohio was more than two weeks ago. Romney, Gingrich, and Santorum were bunched closely together in that one. I predict that the next Ohio poll will be the next big news for Rick Santorum.
“If this keeps up, hell get my tea party vote from the heart of Californias conservative Central Valley!! Newt or Santorum. Either one is fine by me!!”
I agree. Of course I prefer Santorum but certainly would love to vote for Newt in the General. Come on Onyx join us.
Nothing could be finer than a Newt in Carolina ‘cept a Rick in San Fran Sick??????????????????
Don’t make me come over there and slap you;(
I agree...I’m a fellow Californian and it’s either Newt or Rick for this coming primary. I prefer Newt, but Rick will be A LOT better than Mitt.
Thank you, Jim... I am **REALLY** glad to hear you say explicitly what I was already pretty sure you believed.
I'm pretty much in the same place as you, by the way. I prefer Santorum but I've already been taking a lot of “hits” in my church circles for saying Gingrich is acceptable.
On something more important:
Elsewhere on this thread, I gave FReeper Yaelle some on-the-ground practical suggestions for how to organize a Korean political campaign in Korean churches and businesses. I might just have a little bit of experience doing such things. What I don't have is knowledge of California election law, and she needs guidance.
Can you perhaps help Yaelle by putting her in contact with people who will steer her in the right direction?
Koreans often don't vote, and when they do vote they often vote based merely on the recommendation of somebody they know. That's a real problem in California where Koreans are overwhelmingly churchgoers and many are small business owners — they should vote Republican but often don't, simply because the wrong people get to them first.
I've put a “bug” in Yaelle’s ear. With some California help and a lot of hard work, I could easily see her turning out hundreds of votes and quite possibly helping organize an effort that turns out thousands of Korean votes.
Ethnic minority voters who run small businesses and go to church are the future of the Republican Party in places that haven't voted Republican for many generations. Koreans can and should be a big part of that.
