Nothings set in stone up north, but Florida officially moved its own primary to January 31st today so the early-state dominoes are about to fall. Heres the first domino, already wobbling. New Hampshires potentially much more of a Christie state than a Palin state, so of the two late entrants, this would hurt him more than her. But of course, if New Hampshire moves up to December, Iowas going to move too to retain its pride of place. And Iowas probably a must-have for her if she gets in.
This year, its a Christmas caucus!
New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner, who has unilateral control to set the Granite States date, moved up the presidential primary filing period to begin Oct. 17 and ending October 28, signaling the New Hampshire primary contest will be moved up in the calendar.
Unfortunately, well be unable to have the upcoming presidential primary on the second Tuesday in March and will continue to honor the tradition of our first-in-the-nation presidential primary, Gardner told NBC News. Because we cannot rule out of the possibility of conducting the primary before the end of this year, we are, regrettably, as we were four years ago, forced to move the presidential candidates filing period to October.

It's actually law in New Hampshire that their primary be first. So, if the Secretary of State did not move it to make sure it is the first, he would be acting illegally...believe it or not.
They don’t care if they lose half their delegates. Money and history is more important.
Usually when you release a date into the public, you have just signed a contract for the leasing of the convention space. If you change the date afterward, it will cost you quite a bit. Primarily due to one of those many clauses in the, We Now Own Your But, typical contract.

That’s a disgusting filthy arrogant law if I ever heard one.
Want to shut down Cain and make this a Ronmey/Perry act? Hold early primaries in states with large numbers of delegates. Take half the delegates away again and distribute them to states that hold off. Tell NH and SC that they can double their delegates by waiting.
Yes super liberal Mitt Romney must not be the nominee of the Republican Party. However the Republicans voters must wake up to the fact that if they want to make the in state tuition for illegal immigrant as their most important issue and want to destroy Perry because of it then they are going to get Romney as the nominee. They need to ask themselves if Jose the son of an illegal immigrant paying in state tuition is more dangerous than Romneycare and all of Romney liberalism on so many important issues. If the answer is yes, then they will get Romney as he nominee and they only have themselves to be blamed, it is that simple.
Lots of stupid laws out there that need to be ignored or overturned.
What kind of prison sentence does the SOS get for not following the law?
Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, what did you think of the play?
How about this one
Rush reads from this article:

Alarming that conservatives will drive the Romney campaign to the nomination, by dissing the only conservative guy who could have curbed Romney and beat Obama. Romeny and Perry are front runners because they more consistently have shown that either can beat Obama once they gain the nomination.
Rick should have won on his record alone. Hope comes loaded in October, or it will be the founder of socialistic health care Republicans will elect. Ick.
This "traditional" started with McGovern and the Dems of the 70's, Republicans followed suit a few years after.
2 New Hampshire facts:
—Mark Steyn lives there
—Famous moment in Nashua, 1980. He’s paying for that mic!
you have no idea how much that pi$$es me off
rhino perry really
I don’t think we’ve cast a vote yet . You should look at our 2010 results. I think mitts could lose here at this point.
It's funny how so many Freepers who get miffed whenever the Dims pull a defeat from the jaws of victory (wars, etc.), are engaging in the same self-destructive behavior.
I'm starting to believe that liberalism isn't the only political-driven mental illness - the conservative side seems to think that, unless you have a doctor's note saying your poop don't stink, you can't possibly be our nominee. That leaves Jesus and I have it on good authority He won't run and if He did, many would be surprised at the difference between His actual philosophy and what they think it would be...
” It’s pathetic the way New Hampshire and Iowa force themselves to be relevant every four years.”
Hey!!! Don’t be diss’en us New Hampshirites ... the Primary is one of the state’s biggest “Cash Cows” along with Motorcycle Week at Loudon.
Exactly. THAT is why Romney’s votes
are near the highways.
The backstabbing, carpetbagging cheater
sends them up to vote in two states.
