The atmosphere was electric in Myrtle Beach for the GOP debate.  The crowd was very vocal and you can tell that South Carolina is ready to be heard.  The debate was surprising due to those who stepped up to the plate.

To continue on with the baseball analogies some hit it out of the park and some flat struck out.  Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry all hit big home runs in the debate while Mitt Romney grounded out and Ron Paul struck out as usual.

It can’t be said enough that Newt Gingrich was the standout winner though.  Newt Gingrich took on Juan Williams on some unbelievable race baiting, we will get to that later, and he really seemed to be on fire.

Gingrich also took on Ron Paul and really exposed him as the nut he is.  Gingrich took on Ron Paul on Osama bin Laden and American military presence abroad.

In the last few days’ news has broken along with a videotape of four United States Marines urinating on some dead insurgents in Afghanistan. It is a little shocking to see just how quickly the American people are to throw our own to the wolves.

People tend to act as though this is the worst thing that has ever been done by our military. Going back as far as World War Two there is evidence of routine executions of prisoners as well as torture and mutilation of dead bodies. There are even reports of American servicemen prying teeth from dead Japanese soldiers in order to harvest their gold and silver cavity fillings.

In Vietnam there was a highly decorated Special Forces unit known simply as Tiger Force. Their job was to take the fight to the heart of the enemy and instill fear within them. They did this by scalping and removing dead enemies ears and wearing them like jewelry,

None of this is excusable behavior in polite society but ladies and gentlemen, where we are sending our Marines is not civilized. Never in the history of the United States have we sent our troop to a civilized place to wage war. (more…)

Mitt Romney stole the evening with a resounding victory. With the polls just short of fully reporting, he is leading with almost forty percent of the votes in New Hampshire.

Just behind him was Ron Paul with would be called a strong showing. Paul carried roughly twenty-three percent of the votes in New Hampshire. This is a little suspect though as it has been speculated that many of his votes probably came from liberal voters. The question is would he get those same votes in a general election? The answer is probably not.

Jon Huntsman did well but in my opinion not well enough to continue. With seventeen percent of the vote he pulled out third place fairly safely. However, it must be said that Huntsman forwent campaigning in Iowa in order to establish a base in New Hampshire. Clearly this didn’t pan out and unless Huntsman get a surprise surge in South Carolina his prospects look very dim. (more…)
