Red Right Returning…New Years Eve, 2011

(Red Right Returning, a nautical mnemonic for the side of the buoy or marker on which to pilot a ship in order to stay in the channel, is a look back at the activity of the past week of the Republican candidates in the 2012 primary. Feel free to voice your opinions on the candidates in the comment section.)

Well, what a year and good riddance. Quite frankly, a year to forget. The year long hostage stand-off by House Republicans. The resulting slow economic recovery. The only redeeming thing that happened this year is that we finally left Iraq.

There were some interesting things that happened. The Republican campaign has been entertaining to watch. After more debates than should have been held, the candidates have come out looking pretty foolish. But in three days we get to see the results begin to unfold. Now it’s just a matter of who is left standing. Who do you think the Republican nominee will be?

2012. What do you hope for in the new year? Got any predictions? Let it out. And Happy New Year from 538Refugees.
