Santorum and Pataki Jump In

I am not sure if this crop of republican candidates is better than the field of candidates from 2012. I do not understand why Rick Santorum thinks that he will do better this time around, in just four years we have seen even much more acceptance of LBGT marriage legality and also forward movement on both recreational and medicial marijuana, these two liberal social stances are very important to the young, so unless Santorum can get every single white social conservative in the U.S to the polls, I don’t see him getting his wish. As a former New Yorker, I remember a little bit of George Pataki’s Governship, he didn’t frustrate me too much, so I would translate my lack of frustration into him governing as more liberal than conservative; I agree with the term Rockefeller Republican applied to Pataki. I do think that if we could forget the trial by fire primary season and just contemplated the general election, I agree with Chris Weigant that George Pataki would win over many more voters than any other republican presidential contender, he is the most normal of the bunch. When I think of Ben Carson, I just get confused, supposedly he is a brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon and yet he dismisses science when it comes to evolution, he thinks that homosexuality is a choice and also other people’s business and he is unconcerned with our environment and/or our climate; for a man of science he confounds me. The others, Carly Fiorina and Donald Trump are business people who love the limelight and desparately want attention. In terms of rest who are politicians by trade, they aren’t even playing at who is the most conservative, they are living it in their elected positions and that is why, not a single one of them will be able to win the general election. Their austerity policies may win in certain districts and smaller regions, but whereas when both coasts are involved, I don’t think that they will find any favor and that is where the game changes. It still will be an interesting primary season, I just hope that its gameshow appeal won’t hurt us as a nation in the end.
