Courtesy of one friend, an old pro, three perhaps overlooked points in the sea of analysis of South Carolina and beyond:
I notice that everyones citing all kinds of reasons for S.C.: Romney overconfident, Perry's endorsement, Romney doesn't connect, Barness argument that Romney needs a big idea. Lost in all this it seems is one name: Sarah Palin. First time she has expressed herself in the race and her candidate wins by 12. If she really comes out for Newt, look out.
Second thought: Paul has potential to give Romney lots of trouble in caucus states.
Final point: Some argue that Newt won't play well in Latino parts of Florida. Why? Unless Jeb or Marco go for Mitt, I would argue that Romney's actions on immigration will matter here. Many Florida Latinos vote Republican, and may not like Mitts tone on the issue. As Jeb apparently didnt, for that matter.
“Latino voters’’. Jeez. We’re just never going to be “Americans’’, are we? No matter how many wars we fight, injustices we over-come, come what may we’re just never going to be “Americans’’. Who’s country is this then?
Newt is an amnesty supporter and so is Palin.
If she expressed her opinion that the sun would rise tomorrow
would you attribute it's rising to her "major influence"?
Very well said. Thank you.
ALL those who vote should be “Americans” in their thoughts, words, and deeds.
If someone identifies themselves as “Latino,” there are “Latino” countries where they should live and vote.
We're the Divided States of America and the 'RATS intend to keep it that way. It's the "Latinos" against the Americans again.
Why would you sacrifice your pinkee? I’d rather admit something than sacrifice a body part, whole or partial.
Newt isn’t Sarah’s candidate. It was Todd Palin that has endorsed Newt. Sarah said she vote for him in SC just to keep the contest going.
As for Paul, he is not going to win a caucus, primary, or the nomination.
If Paul hangs in there, and it looks like he might, he will win more than one caucus. You heard it here first.
Oh c’mon. She’s irrelevant, she’s through, she going to fade away. Least that’s what I’ve heard for the last 4 years. LOL.
This poster thinks both of your candidates are amnesty supporters.
Maybe you haven't heard, or maybe you just don't give a rip, but Free Republic is supporting Newt Gingrich and not letting posters tear him down with false accusations like you did with Sarah Palin.
Where did you get that Palin is for amnesty? I presume you are talking about blanket amnesty?
How would you solve the illegal immigration problem? BTW, what state do you live in?
If Gingrich does well in Florida, that’s great. More power to him and spit on Romney.
Who says he wouldn’t do the same if Our Sarah fell down a hole?
Is every gain by Gingrich somehow tied to her? I think not.
Give Gingrich some credit. He’s the one with the guts to actually run.
Karbar is a PDSer! Ignore him, he always attack Sarah no matter what
So you would discount the Americans of “Latino/Hispanic” heritage that are part of the Republican club (San Fernando Valley Republican Club)just because of their heritage.
These folks have fought against illegal immigration in the streets of Los Angeles. Have you ever gotten out in the street, or are you a armchair activist?
Is this your final opus?
What is a “Latino’’ anyway for cryin’ out loud? It’s a bloody language, not a race!
