New Hampshire 2012: The graveyard of RINOs?

posted at 8:43 pm on December 29, 2010 by Allahpundit

Speculative fun from the Boston Phoenix. All along I’ve been assuming that Iowa would be the de facto social con primary (or rather, caucus) and New Hampshire the de facto centrist primary, with the winners to meet down the road in South Carolina, Nevada, and Florida. But what if New Hampshire’s now a lot redder than we think? What if the Iowa winner rolls into Concord a week or two later with tea partiers ready to rock and blows the centrist frontrunner out of the water? That would all but decide the nomination; it’s hard to imagine any candidate winning the big two early and then fumbling on the way to the end zone.

Is this where Mitt says goodbye?

New Hampshire has just gone through one of the most remarkable political upheavals of its history, completely reshaping the landscape there.

The result, according to political observers in the state, is a power vacuum in the state’s Republican circles, right on the eve of the presidential nomination battle. Or, from the perspective of a Republican presidential wannabe, a slew of total unknowns whose opinion could make or break you…

New Hampshire Tea Partiers, in the afterglow of their 2010 success, are already looking for a conservative, populist candidate, says Andrew Hemingway, chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus, which endorsed more than 100 of the new Republican House members. “There’s already been a shift in attention toward the presidential contest” among those activists, Hemingway says.

The state’s establishment Republicans, on the other hand, will be looking for a more mainstream, electable candidate — one they hope will benefit from the large number of independents expected to vote in the Republican primary, with Obama’s re-nomination a foregone conclusion…

Of course, Pindell, Arlinghaus, and others acknowledge another possibility: that this cycle will reveal that none of New Hampshire’s Republican influencers matter at all. The truth could be that New Hampshire’s Republicans get their news and opinions from distant sources — primarily Fox News, talk radio, and national Web sites like NewsMax and RedState.

In other words, it’s Delaware all over again. Romney, shrewdly, is already trying to woo at least one of the state’s new tea party powerbrokers ahead of 2012. Dave Weigel noted today that he dropped a $5,000 contribution on grassroots fave Ovide Lamontagne three weeks after Lamontagne lost the Senate primary to Kelly Ayotte. Lamontagne was backed by DeMint; Ayotte, of course, was supported by Palin. (Lamontagne himself backed Romney for president in 2007, so there was an element of backscratching to that contribution too.) Obviously, Mitt’s trying to prevent an “establishment vs. grassroots” Castle/O’Donnell dynamic from developing in the state; if that happens and this becomes a test of enthusiasm between centrists and “true conservative” backers of the Iowa winner, he’s in big trouble. In fact, he’s in big trouble regardless since other centrist types like Daniels and Pawlenty will be looking at New Hampshire as do or die for them and will campaign hard there, potentially drawing off key votes from Romney. With the centrists split, a strong “true conservative” candidate like Palin or Pence would stand a fair chance of pulling the upset with the base unified behind them. Exit question: After all the time we’ve spent gaming out the primaries and all the time we’re yet to spend gaming them out even more obsessively, is this race actually going to be over early?

Yes, there are a lot of Mormons in the CIA.
Researching why is also interesting.

Perhaps that’s because many Mormons are highly proficient in foreign languages due to their missionary work?

As a former translator I can tell you that many of the best foreign speakers of Japanese I’ve known were Mormons.

They serve no useful purpose here, or in real life.

Frankly I couldn’t care less that Willard is a Mormon. The fact that he is a MORON is what concerns me!

The fact that he and Elmer Gantry were in a perpetual contest to see who could be the worst Governor in America concerns me.

The fact that the moron created RomneyCare, and still thinks it’s the greatest thing EVER, and is STILL telling other Governors it’s just the ticket for their states, concerns me.

An ordinary person acting like this would be committed to the insane asylum!

Being a Mormon might be his only endearing quality.

The only objective evidence we have are the multitude of polls (including personal approval ratings) that have been taken on the subject, and they all say the same thing- Palin would lose.

Ronald Reagan was in exactly the same position in 1979 and 1980. Trailed Jimmy Carter by 25 points. Had the same vicious smears launched against him by the same villains (media, Dems, leftards, Vichy Republicans) … stupid, not intellectual enough, didn’t read, not well informed, dangerous, couldn’t handle the Soviets, yada yada yada. We all know how that turned out.

pdigaudio on December 30, 2010 at 4:38 PM

By the way, if The Hucktard is a conservative, The Olbertard is really Edward R. Murrow.

Huckabee is pro-life but that’s where it stops. Remember: even a broken clock is right twice a day (which is more often than Bela Pelosi, but that’s another topic). Huckabee was soft on crime, frequently granting parole to vicious criminals who claimed to find Jeeeeeeeeeeeeesus. Ask the families of those four cops how that turned out. He’s a supporter of the myth known as man-made global warming (as is Pawlenty, by the way). He’s also a Big Nanny Stater who supports the federal government in the form of Moooooooooooochelle telling Americans how they must eat.

No thanks, I’ll pass.

Mormons aren’t that big on Jews, either.
They believe that as of the advent of Joseph Smith, the Mormons are God’s chosen people not the Jews.
They believe that Jews left Israel and came over to North America in ships and that their spirits were reborn in the Mormon people.
I’d be surprised if you hear any of them be a big advocate for Jews or for Israel.
I told you that Beck and Paul shared a lot in common.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE! Jenfidal, you are just nuts! A spirit does not get reborn into anyone. Mormons are big supporters of Israel and the Jews. And yes, they (the Jews) are God’s chosen people and Mormons believe that!
Why don’t you get a clue.
And yes, because you are such a bigot I call on Allapudit to ban you and your offense lies.

She’s clearly ignorant on the LDS faith. And its clear why. She gets all her stuff on the “web” which is a great place to get all sort of information. Some of the stuff posted on the web is accurate while others are downright false.

However, the fact that the “web” is her source of information about the Mormons indicates how little she knows of the LDS faith.

Conservative Samizdat on January 1, 2011 at 3:51 AM

If Obama holds course, it won’t matter who the Repubs put up. It will be anyone BUT Obama voting time. He knows it, or rather his people know it.

For us conservatives, Romney has long lost his appeal. I would support him as VP in a heartbeat, but not president. Too much liberal in that boy’s blood. Remember, he started this whole nationalization of healthcare mantra with his state version, which is blowing up as we speak and he STILL refuses to admit it was a bad idea.

No we need someone like Mike Pence or Paul Ryan. Not Jindal, as he reminds me of the kid on Big Bang Theory. No “presence” if you know what I mean. Too Nerdy. How about The Texas Governor, Perry?

The trouble is the pickings are slim in both parties because of the generational corruption of spirit, ethics and sense of leadership. You cannot ignore that if it is nationwide and society-wide that somehow Congress or our leaders have escaped it.

The other day I had the pleasure of watching an older movie starring Tom Hanks called “Charlie Wilson’s War”. I was tickled to see as much as Hanks played Wilson “over the top” he wasn’t that far over the top. That is what we need some honest down to earth guys who just don’t give a hoot about polls, but only doing the right thing- at least on occasion.
