Now Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty are parroting Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) in criticizing the Federal Reserve Board while Mitt Romney and a growing number of congressional Republicans are beginning to sound like traces of Ron Paul regarding Afghanistan.
In a very telling move, Newt Gingrich has apparently decided that he stands a much better chance of winning the GOP nomination for 2012 if he acts like Congressman Ron Paul.
Gingrich, due to address the Atlanta Press Club today, will tell the audience that he believes the Fed should be stripped of its banking powers so that it is focused entirely on protecting the value of the dollar.
Flirtation with deeply unorthodox economic policy is usually confined to the libertarian fringes of the Republican presidential fields (read: Ron Paul), but has increasingly bled into the mainstream.
The frustrating thing is, Paul truly believes what he is fighting for while the copy cats just want the votes and don't care about those principles and issues.

Gingrich is a distraction. He has no shot at the nomination, or the election. I can't understand why he is getting any attention, because I can't personally think of one single person that has ever told me they would vote for him under any circumstance.
I wonder what the end game is? Why are they parading Gingrich around, what are we missing?
