Romney Wins in Maine

Mitt Romney carried the day in Maine; but it seems a weak victory!
by Charlie Leck

Report as of now: 6:00 p.m. (Central Standard Time)
Romney appears to have carried 39 percent of the vote in Maine. Nearly 60 percent of the ballots went to the other three candidates, with Ron Paul finishing second. No matter how you look at it, Romney continues to look weak – weak even as the tenuous leader of the Republican Party to this date.

Santorum, who won three states earlier this week, will carry on.

Paul finished second in Maine and, as I write this, I hear him speaking to his followers and promising them that he will carry on.

I haven’t heard anything from Gingrich yet; earlier in the week he promised to go on and on to the very end of this Republican campaign. Frankly, I think he’s shot himself in the foot (via his big mouth) too many times and he can’t heal and get back in this thing.

I don’t know what it all means for the general election in November. It’s way too early. A lot of settling needs to happen, to clear the muddy waters a bit; then we may be able to see the bottom of the stream somewhat better and understand more clearly how rough things will be for the President.

I’m more convinced than ever that the reelection of President Obama will be very difficult for us; yet, he’s a talented man and he may be able to pull it off. Get ready to give as much as you can to his campaign and do as much as you can to help in his reelection.
