As Mayor Bloomberg renounces his membership of the Republican - an affiliation which some of us were sceptical of to start with - and starts, Perot like, to position himself for an 08 run, the GOP play offs are becoming more and more important.
Back in 1992 the feeling among conservatives and Reagan democrats that GHW Bush was a bit of a squish leaked support to The Posioned Dwarf
and allowed Clinton in. Could be a re-run this time round if the Right don't look to their cattle.
The Reptile has come out for Mayor Guiliani
, a man for whom I have the utmost respect but whose positions on a range of social factors is anathema to many conservatives. John McCain's
position on the immigration bill kinda rules him out of contention and his poll ratings read like a parachute jump. Mitt
is a mormon - sorry but 'nuff said. The rest are all nutters.
But Fred... His detractors say that he will be hammered when he announces, that people don't know what stands for, that his popularity is a consequence of people projecting their hopes and wishes for another Reagan
on his craggy form.
Fred, channelling America's Hope for 2008. Could be a campaign slogan...
