What a difference a year makes....

One more note on the Northeast Hamilton County Republican Club and its presidential straw poll before we move on:

The club held its annual pancake breakfast at the Sharonville Convention Center last year, too. It was an off-year for state and local politics, so the club held a presidential straw poll, just as the 2008 presidential field was beginning to take shape.

This year's pancake breakfast drew about three times as many people as the one in February 2007, but the 2007 were interesting. Here's how it came out:

Rudy Giuliani: 38 percent

Newt Gingrich: 14 percent

Mitt Romney: 14 percent

John McCain: 10 percent

Sam Brownback: 6 percent

One year later, and it's clear that Giuliani has lost his shine. Here's the numbers from Saturday:

Mitt Romney: 27 percent

John McCain: 24 percent

Fred Thompson: 23 percent

Rudy Giuliani: 12 percent

Mike Huckabee: 10 percent

Ron Paul: 3 percent

No surprise...McCain and Giuliani
are poster-child examples of the currant Republican oligarchy. The one that stands out is the squeaky clean Mormon.

A vote for McCain or Giuliani is a vote for the statuesque of K street corruption. Romney is the real deal to man the helm.
