Am I Mitt-staken?

Posted on March 7th, 2012 by nexus_admin

I have been relatively cavalier in comments saying the Mitt Romney would win the nomination. At the same time, I have completely underestimated the prospects of Rick Santorum. I totally felt like he would be the flavor of the day. That has turned out not to be the case. He is at Romney’s heels

Republicans Return to Romney

Posted on February 29th, 2012 by nexus_admin

The primary season has been filled with suprises. A candidate up one week, down the next. It looks like what has been inevitable all along, a Mitt Romney victory, is finally materializing. Super Tuesday should wrap it all up. The question now will be what damage was done to the candidate through thi

Is Santorum Sick?

Posted on February 26th, 2012 by nexus_admin

After reading a Kennedy Speech made back in 1960 where JFK talked about the separation of Church and State, Rick Santorum claims that “I almost threw up.” We can go into the context, the rationalizations, the explanations, and he sure tried on ABC’s “This Week,” but he

The GOP, A Party at War With Itself, Part 1

By Scott Jordan. Op-Ed. It’s no secret to the outside observer that the 2012 Republican nominating contest has been the most divisive of the last 20 years. Not since Pat Robertson’s 1992 primary battle against George H.W. Bush whose eventual loss to Bill Clinton via the third party candi
