Fox commentator: Ron Paul revolt could be 'disaster' for Republicans


rawstory.com

Rep. Ron Paul is still in the GOP race and even drew 16% of the vote in the recent Pennsylvania Republican primary. Now his supporters are planning to stage a "revolt" at the Republican National Convention in September, possibly with the aim of securing Paul a prime time speaking slot.

"John McCain would be well-served to kind of reach out and give him an olive branch at the convention," Gallagher continued. "Let him speak, give him a role, because if these people are disrespected -- you know, this, combined with Bob Barr's announcement that Barr now is running as a Libertarian, is going to just take votes away from John McCain and could be a disaster for the Republican Party."

Well, not too much to say here except, YOU GO BOOOYYY!!! Wait, what?

J/K

Seriously though, this is awesome. Paul has been snuffed out by the media, so something like this would be bound to finally get their biased attention.

Hmmm, no one interested?

I think this is going to be great to see what unfolds, should these Ron Paul supporters truly take such a stand.

Best quote from the article (said by Bob Beckel):


This is the only guy that has a bobble doll made for him that his head doesn't move.


Seriously, though, having Paul speak at the convention would only underscore the divides within the 'conservative-minded' constituancy, divides that it seems the Republican party have been staunchly ignoring. Except for 'wedge issues' that can cast them in opposition to Democrats. Of course, they could (and probably would) cut to commercial as soon as he take the podium...

Heh-I can't believe no one posted on this!

You bet I'm interested.

Look, the media has done its ever-shady-ass job at getting the masses to focus away from Dr. Paul, but every time this guy speaks (if it gets COVERED) people sit up and listen.

And they are right here, McCain better show Dr. Paul his respect, or he will leave that place in shambles.
