2016 - It Begins

Let The Games Begin

By Gary;

It has been a nightmare just getting to the point of the first vote in Iowa.  The idea of more months of torture to get to November makes even a political junkie like me want to turn off the tube.

I have done a 180 on Cruz.  He is an opportunist who must be defeated.

He flipped on Obamatrade and favored a massive increase in legal immigration.  Now Cruz thumped the Bible and urged his supporters in Iowa to "awaken the body of Christ that we may pull back from the abyss."

I didn't think Cruz was running for Pope.

The Donald certainly has had his share of flipping and flopping over the years.  But I am more interested in a politician who cannot be bought and sold by the special interest groups than in ideological purity.  Besides, ideological purists do not get elected.

The only other contender worth considering is Rubio.  Maybe get him on the ticket for VP to help take Florida, but I have a gut feeling on Marco, and it is not a positive one.

In any case the day has come.  We are off to the races.
