Republican politicians continue to work against HPV vaccination despite its ability to prevent thousands of cases of cervical cancer and resulting deaths.
Governor Rick Perry’s roller coaster ride in the Presidential race was not unprecedented but certainly serves as a modern lesson that it’s one thing to be an attractive potential candidate and a whole other thing to run a successful campaign.
When historians look back on the last couple months of 2011, it could be looked at as an intersection in time where religion, sports, and social politics all met and talked. And if recent polling results involving Tim Tebow’s indirect effect on the Iowa caucuses serves as any indication, the conversation will continue into 2012.
Rick Perry says he wants to be the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses.
If you missed Perry’s big number flub, in the debate on Wednesday night, he was attempting to list the three government agencies that he would eliminate if elected. He quickly listed the first two and then drew a complete blank on the third, finally remembering it later in the debate.
CBS will present the Campaign 2012 season’s first network broadcast of a Republican Presidential Primary debate on Saturday, Nov. 12.
Rick Perry’s animated comments did not score the actual points he wanted to make and exposed the point that the one time front runner is nearing the moment when he will face surrender or elimination. Perry’s Alamo moment is coming soon.
Looking at the current polls in that light, it seems both GOP front runners and the Democratic incumbent have reasons to be happy and reasons to worry.
