Let's hope this is really a "Happy New Year". The volatile Republican presidential race in Iowa will come down to which way an enormous chunk of undecided voters breaks in the coming days. Delivering stump speeches with more references to the Bible than to the economy, Rick Perry struck out at surging opponent Rick Santorum while continuing to paint himself as the socially conservative candidate religious Iowans are looking for. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is intervening in his states presidential primary dispute and plans to file emergency legislation to address the inability of most Republican presidential candidates to get their name on the ballot. Republicans believe Newt Gingrich is the GOP presidential candidate who comes closest to being the next Reagan, according to a political organization originally established by Ronald Reagan. But, it all boils down to Florida in Jan. because "we deside". Obama won Florida by only 2.5 percent. Today, he's treading on thin ice politically. Thus, any drop in Cuban-American support could easily cost him Floridaand given Florida's political importance, perhaps the election. Time will tell. Just a couple weeks away. And Romney is not even in this picture. That's my update views.
