Obama who on here is accused to be a tyrant appears to be popular amongst the public..unlike Paul. Funny,that.
I suppose I should address this as well.
Obama, who got all sorts of media pimping in the '08 election cycle (and continues to, from liberal outlets), as compared to Paul - who was
effectively buried by the media (as confirmed by independent sources such as Pew Research, some analysis by Jerry Day, and others) despite actual -
and record-breaking, including the first presidential blimp, all-time fundraising record, alt. convention, etc. - grassroots support as compared to
all other candidates aside from Obama, aside from establishment-sourced negative and misrepresentative reporting?
How are Obama's rallies and speeches looking this time around, anyway? I seem to remember - for both him AND Romney - half-empty forums, "hundreds"
attending, and so forth. Paul? I believe I recall oodles of sold-out venues, numbers approaching (if not exceeding) ten thousand - regularly in the
multiple thousands, at least - and no significant challenge for Obama from the Democratic party.
Don't deceive yourself into thinking you're performing a fair apples-to-apples comparison here. There is no equality in playing fields for Obama and
Paul - the former effectively born politically with the silver spoon in his mouth, the latter being the red-headed stepchild of the media and his own
