    The Cornfield Standings - The Main Contenders - May 7th


    Monday  and time to once more put out my weekly, The Cornfield Standings. The  choice is between President Barack Obama, the incumbent Democrat, and  presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney who are vying to  answering the question, "Who's Running to Be My President".

    Yes,  Texas Congressman Ron Paul is still running to be the GOP nominee. I  have even opted in light of how Paul's supporters have been working  state conventions over the last couple of weeks to add him back to the  standings. While he has not done enough and there are too many questions  I have on him, he doesn't merit a rating, only a mention.

    There are other parties who have also made it onto the ballot, even here in the Cornfield. Yet, the President and Romney are the only 2 who are real contention  and have a shot of actually winning the general election on November 8.

    That said, here is this week's standings:

    Romney - Current lead contender:


    3 Ears of Corn



    Romney  drops to 3 ears of corn. Romney failed to take a strong stand on the  resignation of his foreign policy adviser, an openly gay consultant,  after the far right social conservative movement called for his ouster.  Romney needs to display more backbone and resolve and prove he has the  wherewithal to stand in the face of a storm.


    Obama - With GOP majorities in both the House and the Senate:


    2 Ears of Corn






    President  Barack Obama moves up to 2 ears of corn. The President's trip to the  war zone of Afghanistan and the speeches he gave have earned him respect  which had been lacking.  As I have stated each week, the only way I can  say a 2nd term for the President is if there are Republican majorities  in Congress to provide adequate checks and balances.

    Paul - Honorable Mention


    From the Cornfield, that's The Cornfield Standings for the week of May 7th.
