Nothing will happen. The results will be dismissed as they should be and the focus will move to New Hampshire. Ron Paul would have to trounce the rest to be taken seriously as a candidate for president. Romney will be the winner regardless of the outcome in Iowa. Obama will be re-elected. Make a note of it.

If Ron Paul wins Iowa I will laugh and laugh. The GOP already jumped the shark so this would just be the extra olive in the martini.

Well, no, he did not say exactly that. He said it was a serious matter requiring deep consideration and he wan't going to play the "game" proposed by the moderators of that debate, which of course was designed to back candidates into a corner.

He did also say that but his exact words were that he deferred from answering the question.

Anything to back up what is in effect an allegation against the NH Secretary of State? Better have some evidence, or if not, refrain from complaining about the false allegations of racism against Ron Paul.

Of course those of us who are honest about Dr. Paul's stance on the issues know none of these are true but those who take the word of the MSM as the entirety of the research they will do on a candidate likely wil dringk the NewtRomney kool-aid.

How much do you want to bet that he will not be governor again?

Ron Paul has pooped in the GOP's punchbowl!

Ron Paul is going to ruin Iowa's status?
What kind of scare tactic is that?

What hypocrisy! If you do not care for the outcome of a certain election, why even have that election? Why don't the bunch of elites just anoint a candidate which they like?
