The support between Obama and Ron Paul is genuinely different.
Obama didn't even have a shot until Oprah literally threw him in the ring. Ron Paul's supporters are dedicated, actually informed in politics and
policies and will be with him through thick and thin, you think they'll disappear after he wins 2012 like Obama fans did? To just say Ron Paul is
the Obama of 2012 is just misinformation and I think you know it.
Are you missing my point intentionally? I never said they were "the same." I said that elements of his support surely do sound the same when Paul is
depicted at his "glorious entrance" to accolades from the masses cheering for him, THE SAME WAY Obama was cheered in Denver (and other places.)
Obama's supporters are certainly not stupid and as supportive of Obama as the Paulistas are of him. They think it's fine and dandy to turn the USA
into a socialist state, redistribute the wealth so more falls their way, and unionize everyone.
It's a VASTLY different message, but It SOUNDS exactly the same to me, the same enthusiastic and vacuous cheering on of their hero: Hope & Change. If
Obama hadn't already trademarked that phrase, it would be perfect for Paul. All we have to do is bring home the troops, change to the gold standard,
and ignore the rest of the world and everything will be PEACHY!
The biggest problem with Paul supporters is that too many of them are full of themselves and obnoxious. They mistake a completely spammed and
artificial poll as the real thing. Some of them actually believe that if they go spam a poll, that reflects Paul's REAL popularity. It's completely
insane how out of touch with reality they are. And Paul does no better when he suggests insane stuff like the border fence being used to keep us IN! I
can just imagine it. Americans rushing to Mexico for a better and safer life. Time for Letterman and Leno to get some laughs on that one.
The biggest thing the Paul campaign needs right now, in all seriousness, is adult supervision. Judging from his campaign so far, which looks just like
his campaign last time, he simply does not have it.
