THE BIG LOSERS at the Iowa Freedom Summit . . . January 24, 2015 – were the Leader Wannabes who weren’t there . . . and the ones who should NOT have been there.

But to me . . . The BIGGEST LOSER was Mitt Romney. And that bothers me far MORE than just somewhat, because I REALLY like Romney.

But before I write about Romney, I’ll start with the JERK of the Summit who shouldn't have been there at all, let alone take to the podium. But, in a FREE Society, he had every RIGHT to be there, and every RIGHT to look and sound like the overstuffed BUFFOON that he is.


As serious as the TIMES are . . . the United States of America and the Republican Party does NOT need COMIC relief.

Donald Trump has NEVER been a REAL contender, but . . . like his friend Al Sharpton, he always seems to find a way to insert himself before the cameras. He REALLY should NOT have been invited to speak.


I am extremely DISAPPOINTED in Mitt Romney, who I WOULD HAVE ENDORSED on this BLOG, because I think he is a genuinely NICE guy, who is a decent family man, a person who actually loves America, and someone who has certainly proven to be up to the task of repairing a fractured economy.

BUT - WOULD HAVE means just that . . . WOULD HAVE – BUT NOT NOW, and for TWO reasons.

1 – Romney should have NEVER agreed to a PRIVATE meeting with Jeb Bush, to conspire how to divide and manipulate the SPOILS of political WAR, BEFORE the WAR was even engaged.

This type of ELITIST thinking is EXACTLY what the REAL PEOPLE HATE MOST, and what has been the cause of the steady demise of the American Dream.

2 – If Romney REALLY wants to get into the FIGHT again, he SHOULD have been in Iowa stating his case BEFORE the PEOPLE he would hope to LEAD.

Instead, Romney was a NO-SHOW.



ALSO . . . AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL – America was built solidly AGAINST Political Dynasties at the enormous cost of BLOOD, PAIN and TREASURE. America and the world have no NEED for another BUSH.


Then there’s Jeb Bush’s record . . . Other than being a Progressive Republican, what has Jeb Bush done to win the adulation he is receiving from Establishment Republican Insiders?

IN ADDITION . . . Bush has further ruled himself out of contention for the same two reasons Romney did.

1 – Even though the campaign had NOT yet really started . . . he was nonetheless making SLEAZY backroom deals.

2 – He too was a NO-SHOW in Iowa, which to me was UNCONSCIONABLE.


There is a large number of Republicans who would each make a GREAT President . . . from Scott Walker (currently my favorite), to Ted Cruz, to Rick Perry and Ben Carson. There are others of course. But these are the people who are at the top of my list.


If Hilary Clinton is the BEST the Democrats have . . . GOOD NIGHT IRENE, BECAUSE THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE.

FORGET ABOUT THE HILLARY HYPE . . . She is a HORRIBLE Debater. She is cold and aloof. And the MORE she tries to be a WOMAN OF THE PEOPLE . . . the more her DISDAIN for the people shines through.


What Difference At This Point Does It Make? . . . To her GREAT Chagrin, Hillary Clinton will discover that it means EVERY DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD!


If for whatever reason, the Republicans decide to go with Bush . . . I WILL NOT BE HAPPY.

And if the RINOS are so STUPID as to choose Chris Christie . . . I WILL THROW IN THE TOWEL, AND WRITE THE REPUBLICANS OFF.

PS – UNRELATED to the Republican Campaign to choose a Presidential Candidate, but REALLY IMPORTANT to all of us . . . is this past weekend’s Greek Election, which has chosen a FAR LEFT Government.

Once installed into OFFICE, it might be CURTAINS for the EURO and perhaps the European Union as a whole. And that could easily bring about a GLOBAL DEPRESSION.

REMEMBER . . . It is the things we don’t see, and do not expect, that do us in . . . and they more often than not start small, and come out of LEFT FIELD.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov


Unfortunately, our system has evolved into a popularity contest. The dems say what the masses wish to hear, irrespective of their intent. The masses consistently buy into this because they are looking for "something for nothing". Free health care for everyone who is too stupid or lazy to find meaningful work. The safety net has been lowered to the floor.Even so, they vote for free food and other benefits without proof of effort or attempt to raise skills to acceptable job levels. Breeders.

No to Bush, Christie, and Romney and of course Hillary.....now you other candidates who are true conservatives, get your act together and get out there and strut your stuff. This country needs a leader...a real one, NO LEFTIES NEED APPLY!

I live in Florida. I will not vote for bush the rino. Best combos for the Republican party are Cruz/West/Bolton/Gowdy, Walker/Cruz/West/Bolton/Gowdy. Anything with Romney or bush will lose.

The establishment RINOs will circle the wagons and endorse Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, so the boat of complacency in Washington is not rocked. Call me cynical, but I remember when Tom Dewey threw away a sure win and Harry Truman (A Democrat, but a patriotic man of principle) scooted past him into the Oval Office. History is likely to repeat itself. We conservatives are blessed now to have a crop of conservative candidates like never before. Will the GOP leadership (sic) recognize this?

Dr. Ben Carson, raised in the inner city of Detroit by his single, illiterate mother went from being a "horrible student with a violent temper" to become a world famous pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital at age 33. See the movie, "Gifted Hands", starring Cuba Goodings, Jr. as Carson. He is the only Candidate who can heal and unite America. The feministas will vote for Hillary for one reason - because she is a woman - ignoring the fact that she is a deceitful, conniving liberal.

My choice, who will not have GOP backing, is Dr. Carson. He has wisdom; faces impossible challenges with calm and intelligence and has already told us do not register your arms, how to make a workable healthcare program, what should be done re ISIS & other things. He may look sleepy, but is aware & capable. He's our only real hope & people discount him because he's not a politician. That's one of the good things; he isn't a politician or a self-seeker; he's a patriot. He's #1 in the polls.

Of this gaggle of potentials, Huckabee is probably the most intelligent and the best debater, however the election of a Preacher Man is doubtful. To me, it boils down to 3, Kasich, Walker and Carson. The rest are a waste of time and all have problems. It would also depend on the running mate, VERY important. Condi anyone?

I'm so glad a few mentioned Trey Gowdy. Every time he speaks, he commands respect. As an aside; he seems to suffer from a hair identity crisis, because almost every time I see him, his hair style is different. I also like Rand Paul, Cruz and Allen West. I like what Dr. Carson says, however, he appears sleepy, like Perry Como.

I voted for Romney also but later found out he is also in with the Elites and so would be dictated to like Obama. The only candidate that i know now that is not in with a group of corruption is Ryan Paul and his father Ron Paul. But I think they are way too honest to get any type of support from the wealthy who buy votes.

Ronald Reagan said you support the candidate of your party who has the best chance to win in the end. Unfortunately, Romney has proven he is not that person. Historically, individual European countries have only cooperated with others when it was in their individual benefit. With all the pressures bearing down on individual EU members, it just a matter of time before some of them will no longer see a benefit in EU membership and bail out.

I'm not sure Romney has core conservative values when it comes to immigration and Obamacare, which was patterned from Massachusetts' Romneycare . On health care alone he is especially lacking. Your top 4 are my top 4. God bless them!

While I respect your views on so many issues, Howard, I honestly believe that Mitt is nothing more than a politician . . . not unlike John Boehner. I have family in Massachusetts. lol

Ben Carson is my man (we need a good doctor to cure our ills)... Gowdy for AG ! yes!! Lets get Allen West, Ted Cruz,And dont forget Bobby Jendle

If we are going to change Washington, we're going to have to elect as many non-politicians as possible the have some real education in "life", some serious common sense, and the ability to surround himself with good advisors. I'm for Dr Ben Carson for President and hope he would choose Ted Cruz to run with him.

agree with Teri love Cruz and west,but I would slip Trey Gowdy in to A.G. A man of convicition GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ HOWARDS BLOG AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Romney showed he didn't have what it takes when he let Obama slide over Benghazi on the 3rd debate when he had him by the short ones. Ted Cruz is our guy all the way. Listen to his dad speak and you'll see what "yearning to breathe free..." really means; and the apple fell very close to the tree. Ted Cruz and Allen West in 2012 to save America.

My exact top four too!

Ahhh yes... The Greeks. They elected a leftist government (again) because evidently it's been working so well for them so far. This is what happens when the majority of your voters cast their ballot for free stuff and the others (even though they may be in the majority, such as here in the US) are making a worthless point by not voting or are too lazy to get off the couch on election day. It always spells disaster. In our case disaster is spelled O-b-a-m-a.
