Understanding Obama’s Sequester Hoax

Understanding Obama’s Sequester Hoax

obama pinocchioTo understand the sequester hoax and scam we have to actually go back 2 years. The bill was the final chance in a series of proposals to resolve the 2011 United States debt-ceiling crisis, which featured bitter divisions between the parties and also pronounced splits within them. Earlier ideas included the Obama-Boehner $4 trillion “Grand Bargain”, the House Republican Cut, Cap and Balance Act, and the McConnell-Reid “Plan B” fallback. All eventually failed to gain enough general political or specific Congressional support to move into law, as the midnight August 2, 2011, deadline for an unprecedented U.S. sovereign default drew nearer and nearer.

The solution came from White House National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling, who, on July 12, 2011, proposed a compulsory trigger that would go into effect if another agreement was not made on tax increases and/or budget cuts equal to or greater than the the debt ceiling increase by a future date.

Ultimately, the intent of the sequester was to secure the commitment of both sides to future negotiation by means of an enforcement mechanism that would be unpalatable to Republicans and Democrats alike. President Obama agreed to the plan. House Speaker John Boehner expressed reservations, but also agreed.

On July 26, 2011, White House Budget Director Jack Lew and White House Legislative Affairs Director Rob Nabors met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to discuss the plan. Reid, like Boehner several days before, was initially opposed to the idea, but was eventually convinced to go along with it, with the understanding that the sequester was intended as an enforcement tool rather than a true budget proposal.

On the evening of July 31, 2011, Obama announced that the leaders of both parties in both chambers had reached an agreement that would reduce the deficit and avoid default.[6] The same day, Speaker of the House John Boehner’s office outlined the agreement for House Republicans. One key element in the deal being reached and the logjam being broken earlier that afternoon was U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s ability to negotiate with his 25-year Senate colleague, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.[18][19][20] Biden had spent the most time bargaining with Congress on the debt question of anyone in the administration, and McConnell had viewed him as the one most trustworthy. – wikipedia

In essence, because the president refused to budget cuts and wanted the debt ceiling raised, he and his staff came up with the sequester as a mechanism to automatically kick in, if they still hadn’t agreed to cuts and spending a year later. This sequester is that mechanism.

Obama Blames House Republicans

Obama is constantly blaming house republicans for things he does. It is no surprise then that he turns around and blames house republicans for a proposal he and his staff came up with.

Bob Woodward’s “The Price of Politics”

page 215 July 12, 2011

They turned to [White House national economic council director Gene] Sperling for details about a compulsory trigger if they didn’t cut spending or raise taxes in an amount at least equivalent to the debt ceiling increase.

“A trigger would lock in our commitment,” Sperling explained. “Even though we disagree on the composition of how to get to the cuts, it would lock us in. The form of the automatic sequester would punish both sides. We’d have to September to avert any sequester” — a legal obligation to make spending cuts.

“Then we could use a medium or big deal to force tax reform,” Obama said optimistically.

“If this is a trigger for tax reform,” [House speaker John] Boehner said, “this could be worth discussing. But as a budget tool, it’s too complicated. I’m very nervous about this.”

“This would be an enforcement mechanism,” Obama said.

page 326 July 26th

At 2:30 p.m., [White House Budget director Jack] Lew and [White House legislative affairs director Rob] Nabors went to the Senate to meet with [Senator Majority Leader Harry] Reid and his chief of staff, David Krone.

“We have an idea for a trigger,” Lew said.

“What’s the idea,” Reid asked skeptically.

“Sequestration.”

Reid bent down and put his head between his knees, almost as if he was going to throw up or was having a heart attack. He sat back up and looked at the ceiling. “A couple of weeks ago,” he said, “my staff said to me that there is one more possible” enforcement mechanism: sequestration. He said he told them, “Get the hell out of here. That’s insane. The White House surely will come up with a plan that will save the day. And you come to me with sequestration?”

Well, it could work, Lew and Nabors explained.

What would the impact be?

They would design it so that half the threatened cuts would be from the Defense Department…. The idea was to make all of the threatened cuts so unthinkable and onerous that the supercommittee [tasked with making additional cuts] would do its work and come up with its own deficit reduction plan.

Lew and Nabors went through a laundry list of programs that would face cuts.

“This is ridiculous,” Reid said.

That’s the beauty of a sequester, they said, it’s so ridiculous that no one ever wants it to happen. It was the bomb that no one wanted to drop. It actually would be an action-forcing event.

“I get it,” Reid said finally.

page 344 July 30th

The president and [White House chief of staff William] Daley were on the patio outside Daley’s office with [adviser David] Plouffe, [Treasury Secretary Timothy] Geithner, Lew and Sperling when they got word that Biden was making progress with [Senate Minority Leader Mitch] McConnell. It looked as if Republicans were ready to agree to a Defense/non-Defense sequester in the trigger.

Plouffe couldn’t believe it. These guys were so afraid of increasing revenues that they’re willing to put Defense on the chopping block? Republicans’ revenue phobia was so intense that they would sell out the Pentagon.

“This is a deal we can probably live with,” Obama said, willing to do almost anything to salvage something and prevent catastrophe.

Jack Lew delivered a speech, however, in Tampa publicly denouncing the house republicans for the sequester.

“There was an insistence on the part of Republicans in Congress for there to be some automatic trigger…. [It] was very much rooted in the Republican congressional insistence that there be an automatic measure at the end.”

Bob Woodward couldn’t believe it.

“After reviewing all the interviews and the extensive material I have on this issue, it looks like President Obama told a whopper,” Woodward said.  “Based on what Jack Lew said in Florida today, I have asked the White House to correct the record.”

So is the sequester a massive budget cut? If you pay attention to the president, the sky is falling, the sky is falling. But, after carefully look at it, you see not just cracks in the theory that the sky is falling, you see massive gaping holes, vast canyons you could drive an army through.

The sequester is not a budget cut. The sequester is a stop to AUTOMATIC INCREASES. Most Americans are unaware how out of hand congressional spending is. Americans don’t realize that there are automatic increases written right into the budget. What is illogical about it is, it is not tied to anything, like say population increase. It is haphazardly written into the budget plan.

This sequester was proposed by the president to call the house republican’s bluff. They had proposed over 50 different cut options to the president, which he rejected. He wanted the debt ceiling increased and spending upped. This was proposed as a test to force house republicans to come up with spending and cuts. Unfortunately, the president has denied and refused every single proposal by the house republicans. And, now, he turns around and plays dirty politics by saying it was their idea to have a sequester.

He wants his cake and to eat it too.

Revisiting Herman Cain’s Campaign

Revisiting Herman Cain’s Campaign

Now that all the dust has settled, and it’s old news, let me give you the clarity of 20/20 vision in hindsight, about Herman Cain.

Herman Cain was as nameless as Obama when he entered the race on the GOP party ticket. He remained so for months. Finally after making some appearances, and people got a chance to hear him actually speak about completely revamping the tax system his campaign shot through the roof. He became a household word and his polls were tied to Rick Perry and Mitt Romney, even beating out Ron Paul.

Herman Cain

THEN, AND ONLY THEN, did these women accusers come forward. BUT WAIT, you’re forgetting.

Cain actually ran in 2000 against George Bush. He said, his was the better campaign and idea, but the party “chose” Bush [ I think he means, the party, not the republican voters ] He ran in 2004 for a senate seat.

You’re also forgetting Cain’s 2010 campaign weathered numerous attacks against nearly everything the campaign put out: such as his 9-9-9 flat tax [ finally someone actually campaigned for it, which is what the country needs ] and other attacks.

Then the “anonymous” accusers came forward. Nearly every female voter turned on Cain, immediately siding with the accusers.

Let’s look at this. Cain is almost ahead in the polls, then the first woman appeared. Cain and friends completely wiped her aside. Then another came forward. Again Cain was cleared. Then another and another and another came forward. Then one came forward saying she had had a 13 year relationship with him. Mind you all the previous women who had claimed sexual harassment had occurred all with the same few years, when he was president of the NRA, and no accusations had occurred before or since that time, and all of their claims were found to be baseless and denied. They were all summarily fired and given severance pay.

One of the accuser’s claim of sexual harassment was based on her saying that Cain told her a dirty joke.

Another accuser who had called Cain a “monster” in a press conference had been seen running up to Mr. Cain backstage at one of his rallies and giving him a big hug. Cain’s reaction was that he did not know the woman, or didn’t recall the woman. He later told reporters such as well.

Most all of the accusers were found to be destitute, [ that’s poor for you who don’t know big words ] One lady was not just poor, but living large. It was found she had a habit of swindling money out of people, described as a smooth operator.

Now, let me let you in on a little secret. Politics is a game played for keeps.

Remember, NONE of these women came forward when Cain was a nobody. In fact, they didn’t come forward when Cain was picked as the GOP candidate in some straw polls. They only miraculously showed up when Cain’s campaign had tremendous momentum and tied Perry and Romney in polls. And, all of the accusations had happened 19 years earlier.

Do you really think this was all a coincidence?

Now, let’s look at these women.


Karen Kraushaar

Karen Kraushaar

A woman who settled a sexual harassment complaint against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain in 1999 complained three years later at her next job about unfair treatment, saying she should be allowed to work from home after a serious car accident and accusing a manager of circulating a sexually charged email, The Associated Press has learned.

The report goes on to allege, on the basis of an unnamed former supervisor of Kraushaar’s, that she demanded “thousands of dollars in payment, a reinstatement of leave she used after the accident earlier in 2002, promotion on the federal pay scale and a one-year fellowship to Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.”

The offensive email described in the story

Computers are Like Men…And Women…
From e-mail forward…
Computers are Like Men…
In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem.
They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you had waited a little longer you could have had a better model.
They hear what you say, but not what you mean.
Computers are Like Women…
No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.
The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
You do the same thing for years, and suddenly it’s wrong.


Ginger White [ a homosexual woman ]

Ginger White

The female bodybuilder who once ran a bicycle business with latest Herman Cain accuser Ginger White says the Atlanta woman never mentioned the Republican presidential candidate, who she says was her lover for 13 years.

“His name has never come up,” said Kimberly Vay, who told ABC News that she and White were former business partners.

But Vay, who filed and won a libel lawsuit against White, refused to comment directly when asked whether she considers White’s accusations about Cain credible. “When you see the details of my lawsuit,” said Vay, “they will speak for themselves.” She then referred ABC News to her attorney.

According to Vay’s suit, which was filed in June 2011, White and Vay were partners in a fitness coaching business called No Limit Cycling, and held spinning classes inside the Martin Luther King Recreation Center, which is owned by the City of Atlanta. In November 2010, claimed Vay, White asked to end their partnership, with White continuing to operate No Limit Cycling, and Vay agreed.

On December 9, according to the complaint, White sent a “defamatory” note to a master email list of the company’s clients and to city officials. The email said that White’s business had “come tumbling down [on] the day I invited Kim Vay into my life and my business” and that Vay had turned her “dream” into a “nightmare.” According to the complaint, the email alleged that Vay, a competitive bodybuilder, injected veterinary drugs into her system prior to contests,” and also said that Vay preferred to date black men but had made derogatory comments about black women’s hair.

Kimberly Vay

Vay’s complaint termed the allegation about drug use “false, malicious, defamatory” and “reckless,” and therefore libelous.

Both women retained attorneys, according to Vay’s account, and reached an out-of-court settlement in April 2011. In June, Vay filed suit, claiming that White had failed to live up to the settlement and that she was entitled to sue for libel. Vay’s attorney Kurt Martin told ABC News that White had failed to honor the financial agreement that had settled the case.

Vay also told ABC News that she had filed a petition for a restraining order against White, but that the petition was never finalized and no restraining order was issued.

Ginger White says she had an affair with Cain for 13 years… It might be a good idea to tell **Kimberly Vay** —– which is Ginger Whites ex-lover and ex- business partner … and, as stated in court records, they were lovers for the last 13 years (they’re gay) …. Plus, **Kimberly Vay** just recently had a restraining order on Ginger White for months because of threats and stolen funds — most important, **Kimberly Vay** says she never heard of the name “Herman Cain” until recently.Let’s not forget those 9 lawsuits in the last 8 years – and Ginger White was served 2 weeks ago for nonpayment of rent — again.So, let’s make sure I got this right …. Ginger White, says she had a 13 year relationship with Herman Cain….. but, **Kimberly Vay** has all of the Atlanta court records and the time element and has proven she was in a 13 year relationship as her lover and her business partner and they shared the same diggs for 12 of those13 years (which ended 10 months ago..)So, between Herman Cain running Pillsbury, Coca-Cola, Godfather’s Pizza, running programs at the Department of the Navy and doing the Neal Boortz show …. he had the time to secretly have another affair with a gay lady who hid it from her gay lover for 13 years.

I’m guessing no one mentioned she was gay, because it might have brought into question her credibility. I’m sure Herman Cain knew and didn’t bring it up because he didn’t want to out her. Notice he never attacked the personalities of any of these women.


Sharon Bialek 

Sharon Bialek 

Twice filed for bankruptcy and the suggestion that she was financial stable because she lived with a wealthy fiancé proved false: He’s unemployed and on the verge of bankruptcy himself and — oh, by the way — he’s not actually her fiancé anymore. Also, Bill Kurtis said Bialek had a “history,” whatever that means.

On his radio program Tuesday, Mark Levin aired a clip of veteran journalist and CBS anchor Bill Kurtis on WLS saying that Herman Cain’s accuser, Sharon Bialek, is a former CBS employee with a “track record.” Given her checkered past, a chuckling Kurtis posited that Bialek‘s and Cain’s roles in the alleged car-incident could even have been reversed.

Some of Kurtis’ observations on Bialek were as follows:

“She has a history.”
“There is a lot more to this story.”
“I can assure you that there will be far more to this story.”
“Let’s put Herman or Sharon in the car and say their roles may even have been reversed, given her track record here.”
Bialek worked for CBS radio station WCKG from 2006-2007.

A friend of Ms Bialek, from Chicago, told the New York Post: ‘She has a very infectious personality.
It’s easy to see how she won [Cain] over. But the reality of her situation is — she’s a complete gold digger. It’s all about the money.’

Adding that she was from a middle-income family but lives in a posh house while running from bill
collectors, the source said: ‘Most of her jobs ended in termination. It’s always the employer’s fault, not hers.

‘This is a lady who lives off the system. She is hellbent on finding a way of never having to work and living the lifestyle she wants to live, a very affluent lifestyle.’

Democrats are not Liberals

Democrats are not Liberals

Turn on any “supposedly” right wing talk show, radio show, or podcast and you will hear the announcer refer to a democrat as a liberal. LIBERAL LIBERAL LIBERAL! This weird mantra is repeated over and over. Why? For most people, on paper Democrats seem to be the defenders of the weak, and hence the darlings of those bleeding hearts out there that just want to touch everyone they can, with their good feelings. However, nothing could be further from the truth. I am sorry to tell you.

Democrats are not “liberals”.

Democrats and Republicans are  socialists, collectivists and globalists   

In fact, I am sorry to tell you, Democrats and Republicans are both socialists, collectivists and globalists.

You cannot find a single Democrat or Republican that is an actual “liberal”.

Sorry for your own mis-education, but most of you reading this will not even know the definition of  Liberal.

Let’s go right to the definition: favoring or permitting freedom of action, especially with respect to matters of personal belief or expression: a liberal policy toward dissident artists and writers. So right at the start, you can see that Democrats, and Republicans for that matter, do not fall into this definition.

The founding fathers, as we are taught in school, were all “liberal”. The country was founded on the notion that the government was not to play a role in your everyday life and for the most part you could live your entire life without ever having to come in contact with a government employee. The nation was set-up so that interaction between citizens were kept so private, as to be deemed the most sacred of our policies.

However, left to their own devices, humans will prosper over time. Those who wanted more power and wealth, wanted to gather that prosperity and collect it into the hands of only a few people. The quickest and easiest way to do this was through public policy. But, to do this, the U.S. government had to grow drastically. So they set out to do just that.

Today the government is so large and invades your privacy so much, that only a hermit would ever have the opportunity to not come in contact with a government employee. Through more and more public policy the government increased in size and now touches upon aspects of your life, the founding fathers would never have dreamed possible. In fact, the U.S. government invades the privacy of its citizens so much, that even the very tyrannical king of England, whom we supposedly fought to get away from, never touched upon our privacy in such a way.

The people that fought against the king of England were all considered liberals, fighting for the freedom of all people to not be invaded by its government. Yet today we have debates over whether a woman has a right to kill her unborn child. Today we have debates over whether two men can engage in a religious marriage ceremony. Today the local governments perform religious ceremonies. Today local governments tax people to get married. Today the government tells a parent where they can and cannot send their children. Today the government taxes those who want to send their children to school. Today the government runs schools. Today the government taxes you for owning property, purchasing property and constantly charge your for keeping property.

These are all unheard of things, in the mind of a colonial revolutionary liberal.

Will Ron Paul Be The Final Death of the Republican Party

Will Ron Paul Be The Final Death of the Republican Party

I believe this Republican primary season has several things working against it. If the entire party doesn’t stop for a second, take note of what is going on, take stock of what they ultimately want to achieve and quit tearing down their own party, it is going to be the final death of the Republican party after this election. And, by final death, is meant that the Republican party as it stands right now is not anywhere near the Republican party as was started in 1854, and this primary season will bring to light, in full color, how the party is completely fractured and irreparable.

CLICK TO BUY
  1. the republican party is completely and utterly infiltrated by neo-cons, to the point that they are now setting policy at the highest level, for the party [ they are not conservative; they do not have traditional republican values; they do not adhere to core republican beliefs about fairness and equality that the party was founded on]
  2. the neo-cons are diametrically opposed to Ron Paul; they will do their best to thwart him
  3. given that everyone inside the loop and beltway knew and knows that Bush, and now Obama, cheated to secure the candidacy and presidency, they are proceeding with the most nefarious primary season yet to be seen since the tremendous fraud Kennedy committed during his nomination; they have willfully and fraudulently fixed their own primaries against Ron Paul 
  4. they are attempting to put a puppet democrat in place, Mitt Romney, as the republican candidate; he is, in no shape form nor fashion, a republican; he’s not even a neo-con; he is a by the book democrat; and there is no way that several states voted for him; it is obvious that they committed fraud to make him appear much better than he was in Iowa and the rest; people have come forward saying the Perry and Bachman’s camp were told to make their followers vote for Santorum or Romney to thwart Paul; so the other candidates were all in collusion to thwart Paul,
  5. CLICK TO BUY

    Paul supporters have, almost to a man, all said they will not vote for anyone in the Republican party except Paul; this means, come actual election time, If Paul is not the Nominee, the Republicans are automatically defeated; without the entire Paul camp and voters voting come election time, the Republicans will not have anywhere near the votes that Obama will have and it will be a landslide the likes of which have never been seen before.

  6. given the amount of fraud that has been going on in the primaries and the caucuses, it is obvious the neo-cons fear Paul and his supporters; the Paul block is huge and growing; Paul is, after all, the tea party choice; between the tea party and the Paul supporters, the neo-cons will not be able to get a block that size and cohesiveness; the neo-cons therefore are shooting themselves in the foot by not allowing Paul to win, the nomination and the election
  7. the neo-cons fear that a Paul will, would mean and end to the feeding frenzy in Washington that has been going on for the past 40 years; Dr. Paul would implement measures that would curtail insider trading, abuse of power; corporate politics; corporate capitalism; and crony capitalism; such measures would spell the end of neo-cons; so the neo-cons are forfeiting any pretense to help their own party, in favor of trying their best to remove Paul from the primaries and caucuses; so instead of a republican win, they want a neo-con win; it cannot be done without Dr. Ron Paul 

AND THAT IS POLITICS, now it is in favor of Congressman Paul and not the neo-cons. They are literally backed up against a wall.

Unemployment Rate Drop Faked

Unemployment Rate Drop Faked

As more people drop off of unemployment benefits, after 3 years of collecting unemployment, the already fake unemployment rate drops, almost like a rock.

Understand, there are no new jobs and the millions that were lost are not coming back. If you liberals / RINOs cannot understand this, I don’t know what else to say to you.

Deer in Headlights

The government tracks who is ON unemployment. Once your unemployment payments stop, and you cannot receive any more, you fall off the government’s unemployment list. So yes, in 2009 millions lost their jobs, after 3 years of collecting unemployment they used up all their payments and cannot get any more. There was not people being hired by the millions all of a sudden. It would take millions upon millions of people getting a job for the unemployment rate to drop so drastically. However, the real explanation of millions using up their unemployment explains the drop.

“The U.S. economy created jobs at the fastest pace in nine months in January, and the unemployment rate unexpectedly dropped to 8.3 percent, its lowest level in three years, since just after Obama took office.

 The report meant that unemployment has dropped every month since August, when it was 9.1 percent.” – Reuters

The good folks at ZeroHedge [some schmo that goes by the name of Tyler Durden *sigh*][ no i’m not a fan Tyler ] explained it best, so as not to confuse the idiot public.

“A month ago, we joked when we said that for Obama to get the unemployment rate to negative by election time, all he has to do is to crush the labor force participation rate to about 55%. Looks like the good folks at the BLS heard us: it appears that the people not in the labor force exploded by an unprecedented record 1.2 million. No, that’s not a typo: 1.2 million people dropped out of the labor force in one month! So as the labor force increased from 153.9 million to 154.4 million, the non institutional population increased by 242.3 million meaning, those not in the labor force surged from 86.7 million to 87.9 million. Which means that the civilian labor force tumbled to a fresh 30 year low of 63.7% as the BLS is seriously planning on eliminating nearly half of the available labor pool from the unemployment calculation. As for the quality of jobs, as withholding taxes roll over Year over year, it can only mean that the US is replacing high paying FIRE jobs with low paying construction and manufacturing. So much for the improvement.

This is the largest absolute jump in ‘Persons Not In Labor Force’ on record... and biggest percentage jump in 30 years.”

Floyd Norris of The New York Times says:

“How many jobs did the American economy add in January?

The Labor Department estimated on Friday that the economy gained 243,000 jobs.

The department also estimated that the economy lost 2,689,000 jobs in the month.

The difference in the two numbers is in seasonal adjustment. Employment always falls in January, as temporary Christmas jobs end. So the government applies seasonal adjustment factors in an effort to discern the real trend of the economy apart from seasonal fluctuations. The actual survey showed the big loss in jobs. The seasonal adjustments produced the reported gain of 243,000 jobs.

A reason to doubt the number is that there has been a tendency in this cycle for the seasonal factors to overstate moves, in both directions. Labor mobility is down, as fewer workers quit to seek better jobs and employers both hire and fire fewer people than they used to do. If the seasonal adjustment was too large, then the gain should be smaller.”

And for a real kick in the nuts, we have Numerian over at The Economic Populist reporting:

First, ever since the credit crisis of 2008, there has been a trend in the unemployment report that shows a declining participation rate in the job market. While a whopping number of jobs were created in January, a far larger number of people left the labor force – 1,752,000 in fact. The percent of the total working population who did not have jobs rose to 36.7%, an all time high. It’s no wonder the unemployment rate fell, when the denominator shrinks so markedly. The total number of people employed fell by 737,000. So what do you want to celebrate – the 243,000 who got jobs, or the million or so people who dropped by the wayside and are no longer counted in the data?

To put it bluntly, Obama is not your savior and there was no job creation that rocked 2 million strong in the month of January. People are not working, so much, that their not working dropped them off the list, to the tune of 1.2 million people gone off list. If you account for those people, unemployment is going strong at 10.9%. The numbers reported are faked.

People are not working, so much, that their not working dropped them off the list, to the tune of 1.2 million people gone off list. If you account for those people, unemployment is going strong at 10.9%. The numbers reported are faked.

Political Pundit: Iowa Voter Fraud

Political Pundit: Iowa Voter Fraud

Since I have a degree in Poli Sci, I should share some of my wisdom on this primary season.  Note I am not a Republican. Note I am not a Democrat.

Did you notice that leading up to the Iowa primary all the MSM had Ron Paul as the actual leading candidate to win Iowa. I can post clips, if you somehow forgot. In the 3rd hour, Rick Perry shows up and sucks the life out of the Primary and the debate. In fact, Ron Paul was pushed all the way to the end during the debate and Rick Perry and Mitt Romney were in the middle. The entire debate centered on them. Now note that Rick Perry attempted to pretend he was really running for president. The results?

Rick Santorum	29,839	24.6%	

Mitt Romney 29,805 24.5%

Ron Paul 26,036 21.4%

Newt Gingrich 16,163 13.3%

Rick Perry 12,557 10.3%



Ron Paul fell from a sound 4% -5% lead in the polls to a dismal 3% fall behind Rick Santorum???? Who, no one was even covering.

Conclusion

Rick Perry sucked the life out of Iowa voters and moved Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum into position for the lead.  After voter fraud was found to be the case, they switched from Mitt Romney being the winner, to Rick Santorum being the winner. When the voter fraud annoucement came down the line, everyone expected Ron Paul to be the winner. Imagine everyone’s surprise when they announced Rick Santorum, whom no one had ever heard of.

For that matter, viewing the Herman Caine campaign in 20/20 hindsight, the exact same thing could be said of him, but not in the Iowa primary, since he was not even significant enough to get on the board there. Later of course, it can be said, assuming his campaign was not legitimate, and that he ran simply to boost his speaking engagement prices and make lots of money for running for president. You do know, that that’s what people do now days.
