Well, we can now say that election 2008 is now officially in books. Boy what a historical race it was. Before you get too comfy and you think that we have a few years before the hype for Election 2012 begins…think again. The GOP is already in full swing for 2012 with a huge field of potential candidates.
To kick things off, two of the “heavy hitters” of the GOP candidates will be appearing Iowa in the month of November – Sarah Palin and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, per Jonathan Martin at the Politico. Thus, the GOP invasion has begun.
Over the next few months, a red wave of potential GOP contenders for 2012 will be wasting no time in developing a grass roots campaign in the country’s premier primary state which includes – Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, former Governor Mitt Romney, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, Gov. Charlie Crist, Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi, Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina, Gov. Jon Huntsman, and Gov. Rick Perry of Texas.
Not to be out done, former Governor Huckabee will be touring Iowa in his “Madden” style bus that includes his likeness tattooed on each of the bus side as he gets the word out on his new conservative book that is hitting a Barnes and Noble near you.
Their goal is to craft a message that once again will ignite the passion and ideals of all Americas – lower taxes, capitalistic economy based ideals of Adam Smith, strong, fiscal responsibility, smaller Federal Government, strong Foreign Policy, energy independence, and conservative values, the ideals that Reagan evoked as he united the country in 1980 and 84.
Change is once again on the march as hope is gaining strength in the corn fields of Middle America for the GOP.
Let the race begin – take back the White House 2012!
