More evidence of Romney surge...

In my column last Sunday I suggested that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney may be the candidate to watch in the 2008 presidential sweepstakes - even though in national polling he is running third or fourth behind the "front-runners."

More evidence today that you can't look at national polling to gauge strength. Three new polls out show Romney now leading the pack in New Hampshire, Iowa an d Nevada - three of the first four states to hold primaries or caucuses next year. If he were to pull off those first three victories, he'd most certainly have enough momentum to carry his candidacy all the way to the nomination.

And...just for the noted in my Sunday column...former Tenn. Sen. and TV actor Fred Thompson appears to be the surging challenger to Romney running away with the nomination. In the fourth of the four early contest states - South Carolina - Thompson is on top.

It looks John McCain and Rudy Guiliani are falling fast.

"It looks John McCain and Rudy Guiliani are falling fast".

Well McCain certainly is all washed up because he has far too many times sold out his integrity and the time honored principals of our party in order to get favorable press from media liberals. Rank and file Republicans have finally caught on to McCain’s shallowness. McCain will not service the first round of primaries if he even makes it that far.

Good riddance!

As for Giuliani however that’s just wishful thinking on your part. It looks like we are all going to have to learn how to spell his name correctly which is G-i-u-l-i-a-n-i. I can’t remember it myself so I can’t fault you on that even though I see his name on my cute little red car every single day.

I do believe Giuliani will not only be the Republican nominee but also the next President of the United States.

I certainly don’t think there is much Reagan to be found in that B movie/TV actor you mentioned. That’s a name I won’t bother to try to even remember. The fact that media liberals keep mentioning him is by itself reason enough to for Republicans to reject him.

In fact on that score what’s really surprising about the 2008 Presidential race is the abundance of rank armatures.

Single term Governors and Senators are not serious contenders in my view. They won’t survive serous scrutiny. As a general rule Senators make lousy leaders and certainly a single termer holds little promise for leadership. Americans know that.

Giuliani will defeat Clinton for the presidency in the General.

I loath to make predictions generally about the outcomes of elections because I think that leads to a retardation of the process. I certainly don’t like it when serious people ( such as Gary Franks ) are not given a chance to run in earnest because the liberal media writes them off too early as having no chance.

But in this case it appears so clear what will happen.

President Rudy. Get used to it buddy.
