Santorum now on GOP ballot for Hawaii Republican Caucus

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:


Hawaii Republicans will have a full field for their inaugural presidential caucuses on March 13.

 
The state GOP announced on Friday that former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum had registered for the ballot. Santorum joins former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.
 
"We are pleased that all of the front running Republican presidential candidates are now on the ballot," David Chang, the party's chairman, said in a statement. "The Hawaii Republican Caucus gives voters a real choice and a real voice in the presidential race."

I am not a Hawaii GOP Republican and am not registering as such; nor will be participating in Hawaii's first ever closed Primary. Just stirring the pot. :) However, guys like Paul expand the narrative by pushing the boundaries of the conversation to extremes. He is an honest Constitutionalist, unlike most politicians that are pragmatists and compromisers.

If he's honestly crazy and honestly racist… is his honesty worth all that much?

I didn't know about the racist aspects, but his fiscal policy to return to the gold standard is illogical and would send the world into depression. There is not enough gold to cover the U.S. unfunded liabilities and debt even at these prices. His motivation to use the argument to discourage and limit gov't spending is honorable, though. I have been posting since 2010 that Romney/Rubio will be the GOP challenger ticket. Watch it happen. :)

Rubio is too smart to get involved in this year's race. Politically it's not the right year for him, 4 years hence will give him a better odds of running for President. Romney has too many baggage and he is not shrewd as Rubio. He will wait and run against a democrat he can beat. Obama is question mark as far as Rubio is concerned.

The people I talk to have been running Electoral Map strategies for months now and have worked in D.C. for over a decade for both parties. The computer modeling shows the same thing. Florida is key for a GOP victory. Rubio is VP nominee in 2012 whether he likes it or not. Obama will still win; probably, but Rubio goes back to his Senate Seat when that occurs. Marco is about to learn that everything regarding his future is not up to him. Rubio balances the ticket to bring Conservative working Latinos back to the GOP, like under Bush. This is a very controlled game.

It is about the message, not the victory for Paul. Occupy people should be able to relate.

Actually just looked at the Hawaii GOP (Primary) Caucus set up. It is structured as a State Party promotion tool. They moved it to a closed vs. open caucus to bolster recruitment. It is a proportional delegate distribution plan, which means winner does not take all. The most revealing fact about the Caucus rules is that delegates are awarded by district and statewide, meaning the Hawaii GOP controls the whole process by district assignment. Ron Paul supporters don't bother; it is rigged by the Party faithful. The Hawaii GOP remains me of that person on any reality T.V> shoe that goes to more extreme tactics to get more noticed. As on reality T.V. that "star" always ends up being the most annoying, ignored, and hopefully the one voted off the island. No news here. Santorum just got on because he would like to finish the race with more than 9 delegates for his efforts and Hawaii's Caucus rules make that possible.
