Not at all, He seemed completely lost during the debates, he could not debate at all.

Before I began to support Obama, I was a really enthusiastic Ron Paul supporter. I was in a local shopping square where I was handed a Ron Paul flyer. I read the flyer and realized I support everything Ron Paul was running on. There was one problem it turns out Ron Paul is a feeble old man. What first made me come to this realization is the reporting of the racist posts of Ron Paul's newsletter. Now I have no doubt in my mind Paul is not a racist but he is very incompetent for allowing this writings to go on in his name for so long. Also Ron Paul is a pathetic debater. His debating style during the debates is to seem like a crazy old man or become exasperated. If he was half a decent speaker he would of destroyed those weak republican candidates. Instead he just looked a little crazy. His campaign ran a terrible campaign, look at his christmas ad it looks like a family video made on final cut.

I can't imagine you would sit there and tell me Bush looked any better in his debates. Is there anyone that looked more lost in front of a camera. This fellow has said so many stupid things they are to numerous to mention.

I too, was one of those that foolishly thought that standards, decency and clear unvarnished truth telling would make a good candidate. Once again, I have deceived myself. Paul had too much faith in obsolete ideas like the Constitution, individual Liberty and personal responsibility. Now I see that he was just another Luddite, trying to cling to such unfashionable and outmoded ideals. I have been told so by the more enlightened among us.
Clearly, if he was serious about winning this election, and becoming leader of our rapacious and evil empire (as I have been told it is so) he needed to have more celebrity backing. He needed a gold-tooth, perhaps two, and a chorus of dancing hip-hop girls behind him. He needed a hip, colorful cartoon character to sell his breakfast cereal; which consisted of old dried out flakes of the Constitution, and is unbearable to the modern palate.
Clearly, his refusal to “get with it” and promote quick-fix elixirs and get-rich-quick-at-the-expense-of-your-fellow-taxpayers schemes, was his undoing. He manifestly displayed his crochety old, stubborn clinginess to fossil ideals.
Now I know better, and am ashamed and embarrassed to admit any admiration for him in public. I am fully chastened. I have learned to do as Peter and issue a denial every time the cock crows. You less enlightened supporters should learn to do the same, if only to preserve your remaining dignity.
