One thought immediately came to mind when I read this earlier on. I decided to mull it over for a while before posting it.
I think one thing will definitely happen if this becomes a trend... ie: The MSM becomes unable to ignore Ron Paul, whether through high poll results,
or because he does end up as the GOP's selected candidate.
He will go from completely ignored (as he is now), to completely being attacked and huge and persistant efforts made to discredit him in the eyes of
the mainstream public.
I suspect if it does come down to a tussle between RP and Obama, EVERY SINGLE MSM OUTLET will fall in line behind Obama... regardless of previous
apparent bias in the political spectrum. You will see an assault on his character/reputation/fitness to lead/ of VITRIOLIC and BIBLICAL proportions.
It will make any previous mud-slinging in any previous election look like a picnic by the local church choir.
I'm reminded of the political situation here in the UK in the early 90s, when a sitting unpopular Conservative government where expected to lose
badly to the Labour government... Except that most of the right wing press (especially Murdoch's) completely laid into the Labour Party and their
then leader, Neil Kinnock. The Sun Newspaper (Murdoch) had a headline something like ' If Labour Win Tomorrow, Can The Last Person To Leave The UK
Turn The Lights Out!' ... Next day, an unpopular Conservative government won the election... albeit with a tiny majority, but the media poisoned the
environment enough to sway a ton of voters away from voting Labour.
That's the sort of treatment that awaits Ron Paul ... How on earth you deal with a completely hostile media in the USA?... No idea, and not sure
it's even possible... but those of you actively campaigning for RP should be thinking about a strategy to cope with it... because the chances of it
happening are pretty high
Of course, RP still has a HUGE mountain to climb to even get the nomination, and I would imagine the vilification will start as soon as he looks even
likely to win the nomination.
... and if he does ...it's SHTF time
