SC Primary Roundup



Well, Fred Thompson didnt exactly come in the way this FredHead wanted, but he did come in 3rd which isnt to darn bad. Fred gave a speech which all us FredHeads held our breath while listening to it, he never said he was out of the race and really didnt give much of a reason for the press conference to begin with, but he didnt declare he was out of the race so I'm not to worried yet!

Duncan Hunter dropped out of the race.


John McCain seems to have won the Primary, which was probably a consequence of the Vet Vote. Dont get me wrong, I Love McCain for his service to this Country, being held as a Prisoner of War for over 5 years, and I dont think he should be denegrated for his service to this Country. However, he sucks on the home front! With the exception of knowing he was right about the "Troop Surge" and the Iraq war, he sides way to much with the Liberals on a whole host of issues. Amnesty, voting against the Bush tax cuts, etc..That's the one thing that bothers me about McCain.


Mitt Romney won the Nevada Caucuses, and he somewhat skipped the SC Primary so I am not sure where he placed.

Rudy Giuliani, same thing. He is to busy campaigning in Florida which may or may not be a bad move for him we will see at the end of this month.


Ron Paul and his maniacs came in 2nd in the Nevada Caucuses, and placed like 5th in the SC Primary, lacking the Blimp this time. (Who really cares he's a nutball)


Mike Huckabee Came in Second I believe, and that was pretty much due to the Evangelical Vote. Huckabee isnt a bad guy, I like him but he also sucks on the homefront. Tax increases in Arkansas, all sorts of wishy washy things he did as Governor. Ya just cant tell about the Huckster. I dont think he is Presidential Material, but he talks a good game.

Alan Keys? Who Knows!!!!


Well I think I covered everyone, if I didnt I will update.

I still say this FredHead will continue to back Fred Thompson until Fred Thompson decides to call it quits. After that? I will be lost and I will have to pick a new candidate. I dont want to but I may have to because if Fred calls it quit's I will be devistated and lost. But I will pick myself up, dust my Jeans off, and keep going.

We will have to see the fallout from all this tomorrow.

And dont forget tommorrow is a new day, and the GOP race is still up for grabs and ya never know, Thompson could make a comeback, or another candidate may be someone I can at least live with, with the exception of Ron Paul because he is nuttier than a fruitcake.

Well that's my Two Cent's. What's your opinion?

Marie, Mitt campaigned in S.C. until Thursday when he left for Nevada. He hung in SC until the very last even when the polls said he had no chance of winning.

Huckabee is out after Florida, he doesn't have the money or people to compete there. It's time to knock McCain out of the box in Florida, He does not represent the way I think.

I don't know what Fred's going to do and from his speech he doesn't either. From what I heard on the news on the way home he's going home for a few days to think things over.

All I know right now is if McCain wins the primary Clinton will win the general election. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Jenn,

I dont think Fred knows what he is doing either.

And if he bows out it's going to really hurt.

But I will Pick myself up, dust myself off, and keep on going.

I guess we will just have to see what happens in the upcoming days.

Too bad about Hunter. I really think he is the best, but I knew he was toast, apparently before he did. You have to admit he has tenacity, which is another strong trait of a great leader.

Oh well, I am backing Thompson now, and if he doesn't stay in the race, I guess I'll have to go with Romney. If Ann Coulter likes him, he must be a good choice, but I have trouble with someone who managed to get the Libs in Massachusetts to vote for him as governor. Something is definitely rotten in Denmark.

JG,
I am as much of a Thompson supporter as you but we need to face reality. Thompson is toast.

If he can't beat Huckabee in South Carolina then it's hard to see how he can beat McCain in Florida...or anywhere for that matter.

Your contention that a McCain vs Hillary is a sure win for Hillary is 180 degrees out of phase with reality. In fact, ALL of the polling indicates that it is the single best matchup possible for a Republican victory standpoint.

Say you disagree with McCain on a number of issues and Ill agree with you. However, saying he can't beat Hillary is just nonsense. In reality, the opposite is likely the case.

Her net favorable is -2 while his is a +16. Rasmussen shows he beats her by 8 in the battleground state of PA and by 11 nationally.

If, God forbid, Fred does choose to drop out of the race, I hope to God that's *not* the last we hear from him. He would make a terrific president, but he would also make a great VP. I wish he would hold more press conferences, but even if he does, it seems as though the LameStream media will continue to ignore him because they don't have anything to attack him with, and because they know their candidate (whomever that may turn out to be) will have a very hard fight against him (for the same lack of ammunition).

I just hope and pray that he stays in. As conservatives, he *is* our best hope.

(BTW ... nice site)

Marie I am with you in still hanging in teir with Fred, but it would be a miracle for him to get the nomination now.

There are some rumblings that if he bows out that he will support McCain and if McCain gets the nod he will pick Fred as his running mate.

McCain with his contempt of conservative principles and our freedoms is a losing proposition. If he wins we will be introducing Madame president at the Naval Academy graduations next year right after she signs a new gun ban into effect with the largest tax hike in history. That is an untenable position. McCain will lose in a landslide because conservatives won't vote for him, they will stay home in droves while democrat socialists, defeatocrats and illegal aliens will propel Clinton into the presidency. McCain is not a conservative and isn't presidential material.

You know, all this sounds like Third Way kind of talk, the triangulation of the Clinton years in the nineties. But I don’t know what the McCain era would be, and I don’t know what the Huckabee coalition is. They don’t have a coalition. They’re out trying to get votes of independents and Democrats. They’re pandering to moderates and independents. Folks, I just want you to think about this: What happens if either of these two guys happen to win, attracting the votes of independents, moderates, the Jell-Os, and Democrats? Does that not equal the demise of the Republican Party?

JG - I agree, McCain nor romney are conserevatives and they wil somewhat redefine the party away from Reagan.

But on the other hand either would be a far cry better than Hillary or Obama.

One thing about McCain though he has ticked me of quite a bit with his anticts against the GOP he is one who does what he says even if the consequences are negative for him.

He is reaching out to conservatives and has changed his policy to a much more conservative platfor, strong defense, border security, taz cuts and cutting spending. Though he has been a pain in the butt in the past he always does as he says.

My hope is that with this shift to a more conservative platform, combined with the defining of the platform for the party that Fred will force when the platform is set at the Convention, will have a McCain that is much more right of where he has been in the past.

Ken, McCain is probably the worse thing that can happen in this election. He isn't going to turn right, he is going to try and pull the party left. I'm sticking with Romney and maybe this year I might have a say on April 22 when the PA primary is held. I think going into Super Tuesday it's going to be Romney and McCain and I'll take Mitt over McCain any day of the week. McCain has an explosive temper and if Mitt plays his cards right he make McCain show his true colors.

Oh by the by everyone,

That comment I left: "attracting the votes of independents, moderates, the Jell-Os, and Democrats? Does that not equal the demise of the Republican Party?" came from the Thompson Gunners blog and it was a quote from the Rush Limbaugh Show from last week. Apparently they fully agreed with both Rush and I about McCain and Huckabee when they posted it and now...?

From what I've seen in the Florida Polls so far is this

Rasmussen is about to release his poll in florida:
Romney 25%
McCain 20%
Guiliani 19%

Marie, hang in there! We won't give up the ship until - like I said while live blogging the SC debate - the fat lady sings! Yeah... we are diehards, but we want Fred.

If the worst should happen and he does throw in the towel, lets hope he waits until after the Florida primary and bleeds off more votes from Huckabee. Also, if Fred backs off, we can hope he will be chosen for VP if McCain does win. I don't believe he's as far left as Jennifer thinks he is. No... I'm not backing him, I'm backing Fred until I hear he's gone. After that I'll be in a state of total and complete confusion.

Gayle and the rest of you guy's,

Gayle I really needed to hear that, Thank's. I have been soul searching since the SC primary

And ya know what I think?

We didnt Draft Fred to run for Nothing did we?

It's pretty much our fault he's in this race isnt it?

November is quite a way's off yet!

It's my turn Feb. 5 to vote and what 20 something other states?

Nope I am sticking with Fred to the end. If he isnt willing to throw in the towel yet, why should I, or we?

Mary Matlin is running his campaign, Fred I bet is going to come out swinging because maybe they are probably refurbishing his whole campaign.

I am sticking with Fred to the end!!

Gayle,

Thank You :-)

I have been thinking since they pushed all these Primary's up we have only had a few.

I think it's way to early to throw in the towel.

It's still early for Pete's sake!

And Fred has come in 3rd in a couple of Primary's, that's alot better than not at all!

I think Fred is going to re-vamp his campaign and come out swinging, and let's just see what happens Feb 5.

Marie and Gayle, I want you two ladies on my side if I ever get into a fight.

I am completely opposed to McCain he has sold us down the river at every possible opportunity and tried to justify it by saying we have to work with democrats. Well, how about defeating democrats and stick to conservative principles because that's what his constituants put him there to do and it's the right thing to do.

Amnesty for illegals, taking away the right of freedom of political speech... that's just the beginning, you know all the things he's done with Ted Kennedy in the spirit of bipartisianship.
