Tuesdays with Paulie 1/8/08

Party Time...New Hampshire Style
Predictions, momentum and tears of a clown

The voters in New Hampshire are already going to the polls. So what will happen you ask? Your brilliant blogger faltered in his Iowa predictions with the exception of guessing third place. I am confident that I will be more on target regarding the "Live Free or Die" state.

The Democrats shouldn't be that difficult. Barack Obama will see another win, with Clinton taking the second spot and Edwards grabbing third. The real question is how much will Obama win by? Current polls have him leading anywhere from 6 -13 points. I predict he will garner a double digit victory driving the Clinton campaign into full panic mode.

In the GOP field John McCain is leading by 4-7 points over Mitt Romney. I predict McCain will win, but it will be by a close margin, 2-3 points. Romney had a great night Sunday at the Fox News debate, which was necessary to offset his disastrous showing Saturday on ABC. Third and fourth place will have major ramifications in this race. Mike Huckabee appears be leading Rudy Giuliani and Ron Paul by a few points. If Giuliani was to pull off a third place finish, he would be able to claim victory and most likely unstoppable in getting the nomination. You heard me, Rudy finishes third, he wins the nomination.

I don't believe Giuliani will get that third place finish and Mike Huckabee will hold on to that spot. I'm not sure Giuliani will grab fourth. Ron Paul has a loyal following in New Hampshire and will be a formidable challenge for the former New York Mayor and the Arkansas Governor.

What has become blatantly obvious is that in the eyes of the media Obama can't do anything wrong. This favoritism is killing Clinton, which she is not used to. Mrs. Silver Spoon has had everything given to her and had her way paved during her short lived political career. If you don't believe me just look at her crying incident yesterday. Every media outlet is questioning the legitimacy of her emotional display. Was she putting on a show? Was she feeling sorry for herself? I'm not questioning her tears and I am one of her biggest critics. I guarantee if Obama broke down, the media outlets wouldn't even think of questioning the legitimacy of his emotions. Praise would be the only description coming from the press.

Ex-jihadist backs alternate Islam
Former extremist taking back Islam

This is one article I wish the Ron Paul's of the world would read. David Horovitz of the Jerusalem Post has a great piece on Tawfik Hamid, a former Jihadist and supporter of Osama Bin Laden's second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri. Hamid makes it very clear what the goals of the Islamic extremist are. "Al-Zawahiri wants to subjugate the whole world to Islamic law," he said.

I don't know how many times I have to say it. It's not our presence in Muslim nations or support for Israel that makes them hate us, it's our freedom they despise. The fact that we are a country that doesn't force the people to practice Islam and Sharia Law is why they attack us. Please check out this great article and learn from a man who once was a Jihadist on why they hate us.
