Same with Obama...but at least he IS getting the things he promised done. That was the point of your post...that Obama has broken a lot of his
campaign promises...and that is simply not true.
He has completely kept 28% of his promises, not bad for 2 1/2 years.
Keeping 28% of his promises is getting things done? Go through life keeping 28% of your promises and see where that gets you. I did look at
politifact, and while I only had the stomach to read the first page of political jargon, it seems as if many of his promises are mainly geared towards
increasing(?!) foreign aid and controlling carbon emissions (which means more restrictions on you and me). And what about his boldest promise of all,
bringing home the troops? Since he not only broke that promise but gave the ok to invade Afghanistan and Libya (to spread freedom and liberty, of
course), how does that
factor into the 28%? Shouldn't he be docked a few percentage points?
then they can work on his image of being a kooky crazy old man.
First, if people think he is "kooky" or "crazy", then they haven't even figured out how to tell the difference between someone who understands things
and speaks from the heart, and someone who reads a speech written by someone else off a teleprompter. In which case, they shouldn't be voting. Also,
"kooky" and "crazy" are two of the many words people seem to use when they're out of answers. You're like the GoodOlDave of political forums.
This is one of my biggest problems with Ron Paul across the board...he is too extreme in his views to allow common sense to win over his
WHAAAA??? Half of Ron Paul is the constitution, and the other half is common sense. In fact, I would say he's the ONLY one with any common sense.
Could you please explain what you mean when you say he's too extreme? I hear this from time to time, but what about him is too extreme?
Alright, I keep getting sidetracked. My original point was, why isn't
Ron Paul in charge of his ads? If I was running, I'd want to be 100% in
charge of how my ads came across. This one is alright, but I didn't really care for the one where he called out Perry. First of all, I don't think
anyone NEEDS to stoop to the level of calling him out. But I WILL AGREE WITH OUTKAST(!) that his ads could be better. I liked the idea of one poster
in another thread that suggested using clips of him hitting homeruns at the debate while the others spout rehearsed rhetoric. He knows what needs to
be done, so focus on that. The finger-pointing at other candidates gets old. As does the finger-pointing on these threads. So I'm done.
