but not a shot to win it.
I see you keep coming up with these numbers and I can't help but shake my head in confusion. What 4 million are you talking about? The 4.2 million he
made in a single day? ...and if so what are you comparing that to? ...against the amount that Romney and Obama raised in a single day (before
So please clarify this... Are you claiming that Romney raised 14 million in a single day and that Obama raised 120 million in a single day? Don't
If your going to compare numbers at least compare them in the same context.
As far as I know, to this day, Ron Paul holds the second largest single day (pre-primaries) fundraising campaign in US political history (largest at
the time), second only to Hillary Clinton who raised 6.2 million. And Ron Paul's 'money bomb' was organized purely by the grassroots movement!
Just thought I'd set things straight.
And for the record, if Paul did get the same sort of media attention as the other "top tier" candidates, and as a result would naturally grow into a
legitimate (top polling) "top tier" candidate, and then as a result would naturally, and easily get into the primaries... you can bet your ass he'd be
raking in a lot more fundraising dollars than Mr. Obama's war chest could handle.
Problem is the media (and whoever control the media) decide who the "top tier" candidates are by the amount of coverage they give them, and as a
result, they poll higher. It's not the other way around unfortunately, it should be, but it's not. Each candidate should be given equal coverage from
an unbiased point of view. Get those stupid political pundits away from the camera and just report the facts, let the people decide.
If only it worked that way, the US would be a true democracy.
