Who will rise triumphant?
Will people continue to fall for the latest far fetched election promise?
Will one or maybe more fall by the wayside?
As the GOP race appears to be as much about religious belief as politics perhaps it is fitting to write in such a way. What happened then to the "meek will inherit the earth?" Fat chance of that with the remaining four candidates. If it was a contest on being meek perhaps the leading two would be Rick Santorum and Ron Paul, rather than Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.
As it is these two men. Romney and Gingrich, appear to have Florida sewn up. At least one of them does. If pundits have it right it will be Mitt Romney who the people of Florida choose. No race is over though until, as they say, "the fat lady sings". Seems to me that she is still warming up before the main event.
When votes are expected to be foregone conclusions there are often some surprises along the way. After all once you feel that you are home and dry you relax the reins and next thing you know you have been pipped at the post. This could be the time that a flagging Santorum or Paul take over the lead.
As yet it does seem that none of the candidates are taking anything for granted. They have been campaigning and debating hard making any promises necessary.
According to CNN Mitt Romney has continued to use his vast wealth to blast Newt Gingrich whenever possible. There has been no let up in his ad campaign. Romney has used the same tactics he did in Iowa to set back Newt's popularity. After Newt's surge in popularity last week he is falling back in the polls, or so it seems. Job done.
Maybe but surely this is just what could be a cause for concern to Americans, or right now the people of Florida. Romeny's apparently endless wealth which can be used for his own ends. Today Gingrich has admitted that the ads have achieved their purpose. He said however, "We are going to tell the truth. We're going to beat a big lie campaign with a truth campaign. We're going to beat money power with people power. And we are going to go all the way to the convention, and we are going to win in Tampa, and we are going to the nominee, with your help, of the Republican Party."
Whether this is confidence or bluff is immaterial. It is the stuff that dreams are made off. Believing that you can win is often half way to winning.
