Since I’m not interested in any of these debates until the week prior to New Hampshire, I wonder if there is much interest in these other than the media.

Our Presidential nomination campaigns are way too long. Polls between potential Republican nominees and Obama so far out are meaningless.

This is the weeding out period. It’s all about message and money. It is too long, but I think of it like preseason games. Each candidate has to play their way in through their performances. You either make the cut or you don’t. This gives the nation the opportunity to participate in the culling out process, not just Iowa.

Why isn’t the media reporting on this? http://www.ronpaul.com/2011-09-08/force-vs-reason/

The Gov of Texas lets his true colors show during the commercial break. I guess he didn’t care for what Ron Paul had to say.
