Rick Perry Stays in the Presidential Race and Ron Paul’s Fluke Night

The Iowa Caucuses Tuesday night showed the nation three questions and statements within the Republican Party and base.

  1. Why in the hell is Iowa given first in the nation status?
  2. Did Ron Paul really get 21% last night?
  3. Rick Perry reassessed his campaign? Where was this is December?!

Texas Governor and Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry announced on his personal Twitter account that he is ready for South Carolina after his 5th place finish with 10% in the Iowa Caucuses Tuesday night.

And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State…Here we come South Carolina!!!”

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (24%) defeated former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum (24%) by 8 votes with Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) finishing 3rd with 21% with Newt Gingrich finishing 4th. Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) is bowing out of the race after her paltry 5%, 6th place finish and fall from the top in mid-August from winning the Iowa Straw Poll.

The “Don Quixote” of the race, Paul, is still not viable even after his 3rd place finish because Paul alienates 80% of the base with his silly talk of Iran being the misunderstood kid on the block who is burning cats. You know that the kid has to be stopped before he sets Mittens on fire, but Paul is the old man who says leave the cat burning child alone because its your fault that he loves to torture cats.

A simplistic comparison, but it fits in with Dr. Paul’s simple minded followers who love to be non-interventionist in foreign policy, but love to threaten you if dare question the man many worship even though he has said himself he doesn’t see himself in the White House in 2013.

The race is now a playoff through the South Carolina primary where you have a semi-final between Romney and Newt and the other semi-final with Santorum and Perry. If Perry can get at least 2nd in South Carolina then we have new ball game altogether with primaries in the Sun Belt of America which could give new life to the Texas Governor.

The only Texan to support in this race isn’t a doctor, but the farmer and  former Air Force pilot.
