Thanks, I think, for the post on your website about my new skill, pundit/comedian. We need some levity around here. However, if you read my post, I said it appears the Kochs would like Christie to get the GOP presidential nomination. And if Christie goes all the way to the Oval Office, then Lonegan, part of the Koch team as head of AFP in NJ, would probably get their backing for the gubernatorial nomination in 2013. One thing we know about politics is that there are no certainties. I did not predict Christie would win nor that Lonegan would be the next governor. I just wrote about what apparently is in the offing, Christie’s entry into the presidential race.
Four years ago, the pundits predicted a Giuliani/Clinton presidential contest. So much for the experts. There is a “lifetime” between now and the first caucuses and primaries. Yesterday, the FL straw poll results add fuel to the Christie for President bandwagon. Bachmann is toast, Perry is toast, and the others are marking time. Santorum and Gingrich had their egos stroked from yesterday’s results but they are going nowhere.
Cain is the latest “flavor” of the week. But he in not going anywhere either. He wants even bigger government than Obama as DiLorenzo points out today on the LRC blog. Ron Paul benefited enormously from the results yesterday. He was right there with the other candidates. In short, he is not a fringe candidate as much as the MSM would like to portray him as such.
One more thing; The title of my post: Is the fix in? Not, The Fix is In as in your post. Big difference.
