HawkeyeGOP: The Coalition is Crumbling
Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP
In today's Republican debate, Chris Matthews asked Rep. Ron Paul this
question: Congressman Paul, do you promise to support the nominee of
the Republican Party next year? Paul Responded: Not right now I don't...
Matthews then asked the same basic question to Tom Tancredo, Sam
Brownback and Mitt Romney. Tancredo said: You know, I've said, I don't
know how many times, that I am absolutely tired and sick and tired of
being forced to go to the polls and say I'm going to make this choice
between the lesser of two evils. I really don't intend to do that
again... Romney and Brownback both said that they will support the
nominee. As I spend time with other socons in Iowa I have found that
more and more of them agree with Paul and Tancredo. More and more of
them agree with Focus on the Family's Dr. James Dobson. And I agree,
if Rudy Giuliani is the nominee -- we will stay home or perhaps even
support a third party candidate.
