Pro- I don't think the sheeple are paying attention. They watch the "news" for maybe half an hour at nite after work...hear the biased
"reporting", and don't go further than that. Now that's most folks. Then you have others, who actually look into the candidates, the "educated
voters" and those folks are influenced by upbringing(whether mommy and daddy were Dems/Repubs) and they tend to make decisions based upon that(like
Obama has to be chuckling at the coverage of the Republicans vying to face-off vs him. MSM is biased towards Lib's anyway and that's a known fact.
These guys are tearing each other apart and giving Obama loads of ammo.
No way any of the Repub's beat Obama, except for maybe, Ron Paul. But the deck is stacked against Dr Paul. He knows it and so does his challengers.
Something really drastic would have to happen for Dr Paul to win this. What that could be, I don't know.
The field of Repub's vs Dr Paul is horrible-
Romney is nick-named "plasticman" for all his flip-flopping over the years, has a "likeability" problem and, of course, the "Mormon thing", on
top of all the other issues with him. He can't win a debate about healthcare with Obama.
Newt, well, besides his flip-flopping, selling out to the highest bidder/money, his womanizing, etc, etc: has finished a distance behind Dr Paul in
the first 2 primaries , but remains a media darling.
Santorum- Crooked also, but has no appeal. Plus he's just more of the same.
Dr Paul has to fight the media bias, the "perception" folks have about his foreign policy(Americans love war), and then the "age factor". He
sometimes seems as though he has given up his aspirations to become President and is only angling for delegates to deal later to get some of his ideas
included on the Repub. platform. We all know how soon the platforms are forgotten as the victor takes office. I think Dr Paul realizes he probably
won't win and hopes maybe some small changes are made by deal-making to get things included on the platform, because he realizes the change will not
come about as fast as he'd like. Also, factor in a run by his son Rand in four more years and maybe he ses a glimmer of hope down the line.
Sad to say it but, get ready for 4 more years of Obama
