Debate Tonight on Fox News

The Republican debate in Iowa tonight will be on Fox News at 9pm eastern time live. All the political news people will be watching and I'm sure that millions of other will be watching as well. Then there will be a lot people in Atlanta that will want to watch, but the Falcons will be on Thursday night football, and they may flip back and forth, depending on the status of the game.
This is building to be one of the best of the debates so far. Mitt Romney and Ron Paul have started on a concerted smear campaign against the current front polls leader, Newt Gingrich. The ad's have been relentless and full of have truths and comments on what Newt did in the past. They tend to have one thing in common, Newt has worked with democrats in the past or has changed his position on things over the years. I have a feeling that Newt will be well prepared for the attack tonight and will smile the whole time.
Ron Paul will probably do well in Iowa, his ground game is in tack and his followers are true devotes and will do more with less if need be. The problem will be if he starts to get attacked during the debate to keep smiling and not become a grumpy old man.
Mitt Romney has to keep his cool as well, no more betting on the truth. Don't let the lies and attacks get to him, don't touch your opponents, don't Rick Perry get to him like he's done in the past. I don't know what it is, but something just comes off that Rick Perry and Mitt Romney just don't like each other.
Will the fireworks fly tonight? A lot of political junkies can't wait to see what happens. All day long the talk show will do their predictions of who will win, who will gaff and who has the most to loose. So far all the pundits have been wrong about who would be leading the polls at this point, the establishment in the republican party has been fighting tooth and nail for Romney and it hasn't worked, so what's next.
Dick Morris will be tweeting, Neil Boortz national talk radio host will be like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, talking about it all day today and all day tomorrow as well. Pay attention to see if any of them call it like it is, so far most have missed the mark. Some will say they will pull for who ever is against President Obama, except I think if Ron Paul somehow get's out front, they might even try to get Donald Trump to run. Most have already declared Ron Paul, to far out there for the Republican party when it comes to foreign affairs. There may be one problem with that sentiment, if they disrespect him, he might just run as an independent and pull a Ross on them, which will pretty much assure that Obama wins.

Ok, the way I see it, is that most middle class working Americans want someone who will just tell them the truth and stand up for what they believe in. That's why Herman Cain took off so quick, that's why Newt Gingrich has been doing so well since Cain dropped out. I think most people are a little wary of the Northeast politician, Mitt Romney has never been able to get out of the 20's in the polls. I don't think we really know who will be ahead by April, all I know is who ever it is, be prepared for the most brutal attacks by Democrats that you have ever seen, with nearly a billion dollars to spend, it will be something to see. Nancy Pelosi started a little early when she threatened Newt, but that was just a taste of what's yet to come.
Tonight's debate on Fox News from Iowa will be followed by endless commentary, but the ultimately it will come down to the people, not the pundits and talk show host.

I can't wait.
