COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of February 19, 2016



COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of February 19, 2016

Political Junkie/A man has got to know his limitations:  At 1PM 3 days after NH, I jumped in the car to make a 9PM debate in South Carolina.  I ran out of energy at the SC border and didn’t make it.  I was able to make 5 rallies by Wednesday but that was it.  The media events of NH were not duplicated in SC…only five in four days.  The Trump rally on Wednesday was worthwhile, the rest barely.  I drove home on Thursday.   So, the score in NH was a home run with bases loaded; SC was a single and nobody on.  COP produced a lot of product placement into the media & overall a good bang for the buck.  60 journalists now have the LEAP contact info.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujNLiqkEs70&feature=youtu.be     –this an 8 minute interview, edited with some good graphics thrown in…fairly typical for the minor media, in camera interview…Wm Pierce is a reporter for a cable channel in NH.

Low Energy: Since I went to SC having a cold, I did my health no favor.  I will be like Jeb!  = low energy for a while longer.  Note:  Gosh I wish he had been elected in 2000.  He is as smart and capable as they come….also good on the 10th amendment for our issue.
