Perhaps it's not Ron Paul the man, but whoever is running his campaign.
What in the Hell are they doing with all the millions and millions of money.
Do they even have a clue as to what kind of Advertising Blitz is needed to
gain the awareness they so desperately need. To me they appear clue-less
if not downright spineless and dare i say "full of it". Are they pocketing
the cash? just asking
Ok, so the donations were in the 3'rd and 4'th quarter. SOO marketing
and advertising knows they are not getting the media exposure as other
candidates, heck they have to fight to get into the primaries.
The organizers dropped the ball big time! They needed to play politics! They should have taken advantage of the sliding state of the economy (something american's can agree with, place the blame on the old system (make that clear) and offer new hope in a way that all politicians do. even if he B.S a lil it will be a lot less than the others. I mean we are talking politics here
Also they should have had commericals stating the strength of his donations and how Ron paul gets the most donations from the military. Put this info in a commercial and people will start to Respect him by association (to military)!
but it's too late, the delegates have been chosen (sure super tuesday is yet to arrive) but the advertising (and i mean TV advertising prime time) is no where to be found, why not get on tv and speak the truth.
you know the "truth" that gets people's attention and pisses other powerful people off. they should have known it was never going to be easy, unless they never really planned to run to win.
have ron paul with a group of people from diverse backgrounds including military (or former military personel) " hello i'm ron paul, perhaps you haven't heard of me that much, i have the highest amount of donations of any candidate ever, and on top of that the majority come from ordinary americans not big corporations, combined with the highest donations from our couragous and brave U.S military. You may notice that cnn, cnbc, and msm do not give me much face time. you may also notice that most of their ads are by brokerage houses, investment groups, and various banks. With our economy sliding down hill, perhaps they are scared that one of my campaign promises to return the country to the gold standard, will eliminate all the fraud and deregulation that has gone on at the benefit of these big money organizations to the plight of homeowners and middle class and now the economy. We need a leader that is willng to fight for the middle class economy and i am that man. My name is Ron Paul and i approve of this message" or something to that effect. grow a sack!
sure they will receive theats for doing this, and alienating the money trust, (serious threats) but what we need is brave couragous campaign managers that are just not trying to give us hope, spun like a fairy tale, but with a spine and determination behind them.
anyone wondering the same thing?
