    Random Notes:

    Speaking of Romney, has anyone reported that his father, George,
    was in the running for the Republican nomination for President in
    1968 but ‘lost momentum'(Reagan’s words) to Nixon and Rockefeller?
    Like Father like Son? Is there some ‘do it for my Dad’ going on here?

    And that old(74) fool Schieffer? Why hasn’t he retired? The same reason
    Pelosi and all the others can’t or won’t. They are Egomaniacs.

    Finally, don’t challenge Newt about Massacussetts political history, he knows it like the back of his hand.

    We just finished voting in Spencer, IA. Santorum was first, then Ron Paul close second, Romney close third, then Newt and Perry.
