C'mon guys.... Ron Paul gave it his best shot. He tried his hardest and he did a VERY good job. He came closer than anyone since Perot and that
little twit got scared and dropped when I think he realized he might actually WIN.
No, this isn't November yet and I know well what I said about staying off this..but it's over and Paul called it himself. The comments I'd read
this afternoon said he intends to hang in there to influence the discussion and national topics. I commend him for that and it's good he isn't
actually dropping out entirely. He'll help keep 'em a little more honest than they might have otherwise been. He'll keep PEOPLE awake, aware and
pissed. These are all good things.
Paul also accomplishes two things. He's a clever old guy, and it's why I supported him until the math just wasn't working anymore. The Media will
barely give him the time to say hello right now for fear they encourage his supporters or (heaven forbid) actually contribute to more support for the
Candidate all sides of the system hate beyond anyone else. NOW....Paul is no longer a true contender. He's not a threat to cover and I'll bet he
sets to USING that soapbox to it's fullest extent and sooner rather than later. Clever indeed...and I love the influence I am sure he'll have.
Really though... He didn't use the "S" word (Suspend) but for long term prospects, he might as well have. Romney isn't THAT far from the magic
number and Paul just threw things for how it'll look without ANY question in my mind to all but the most dedicated. That means his numbers start
running the wrong direction now....it's just political reality and I don't like how this all ended either.
I gotta ask though. If his own statements and his own words today explaining what he's doing and why he's doing it isn't enough to take him at his
word, what will be the point tilting at windmills becomes too much? When Romney HAS the magic number? When he wins the Convention? Please don't tell
me this will go on for as many years as the Bush/2000 election did.
Right or wrong on all this and however unfairly Dr. Paul got himself buried without having a fair shot, it has to end eventually? Lets watch Paul give
Obama and Romney BOTH headaches he couldn't while appearing to be a real threat and cheer him. He'll need the encouragement.
