According to news reports Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Presidential “never had a chance” hopeful Ron Paul has effectively ended his presidential campaign but urged his fervent supporters to continue working at the state party level to cause havoc for presumptive GOTP nominee Willard Mitt Romney.
Paul’s urging his libertarian-leaning backers to remain involved in politics and champion his causes and trumpeted how he’s delayed Willard’s expected nomination.
“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Paul said. “Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have. I encourage all supporters of liberty to make sure you get to the polls and make your voices heard, particularly in the local, state and congressional elections, where so many defenders of freedom are fighting and need your support.”
Paul’s supporters have successfully won state GOTP conventions in both Maine and Nevada, and his supporters in Iowa and Nevada were chosen to lead the state central parties.
“Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process. We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that liberty is the way of the future,” Paul vowed.
While Willard’s disdainfully ignored Paul, and has started campaigning against the President, Paul’s very unlikely to endorse him as there’s just too much on which they disagree and it’s very likely his followers may fall in behind Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson, which could hurt Romney in November.
Watching the most recent episode of “Help, the Party’s Been Hijacked!” – more popularly known as the 2nd Florida Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Debate – brought keenly into focus that its time for at least one of the four candidates to jump out of the clown car, and no, I’m not referring to Mittens, Newton or Ricky.
It’s painful to continue watching Ron Paul’s “crazy uncle” routine week after week; he’s actually beginning – with each passing debate – to appear to be morphing into the two guys (Statler and Waldorf) who used to sit in the balcony and heckle poor hapless Fozzy Bear each week on the Muppet Show. Please Congressman, you’re embarrassing yourself. I don’t admit it hasn’t been fun (at times), but now it’s time for your nurse to take you back to your room and give you your meds.
Now, don’t get me wrong, very few people enjoy seeing the Grand Old Party implode more than me, but this is getting way past painful to watch, and it’s far past becoming a joke. At this point I’d rather watch a “Mama’s Family” marathon.
Of course, Congressman Paul’s never stood a chance of winning the nomination, most political party’s – including the GOTP – try to avoid nominating people who can’t get elected, well, there was that whole Sarah Palin thing, but why open that old wound and poor lemon juice into it? People aren’t laughing with you Dr. Paul, they’re laughing at you; seriously, you stand a better chance of being mauled by a pack of rabid dingos, a white Bengal tiger and mountain lion at the same time than winning the nomination much less being elected president. Paging Dr Paul, it’s “To Dream the Impossible Dream” Don Quixote, not “To Dream the There Ain’t No Frickin Way It’s Ever – And I Do Mean Ever – Going to Happen Rag Time Dream”.
Hopefully the people of Florida will finally make it crystal clear to you that it’s time; we’ll see; but then again they did elect Rick Scott.
Wow, what a surprise, NBC News is reporting Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Looney Toon Ron Paul has “aggressively criticized President Obama today for al-Awlaki’s death”.
“No I don’t think that’s a good way to deal with our problems,” Paul reportedly said. “He was born here, Al-Awlaki was born here, he is an American citizen. He was never tried or charged for any crimes. No one knows if he killed anybody. We know he might have been associated with the underwear bomber. But if the American people accept this blindly and casually that we now have an accepted practice of the president assassinating people who he thinks are bad guys, I think it’s sad.
“I think what would people … have said about Timothy McVeigh? We didn’t assassinate him, who certainly he had done it. Went and put through the courts then executed him. To start assassinating American citizens without charges, we should think very seriously about this.”
OK, first, Earth to Ron, don’t be such a moron; you – as a so-called “doctor” – blithely went on and on at a recent GOTP debate that it would be OK for an American to die because of a lack of health insurance, but you’re upset when a known terrorist leader is killed without a single American casualty, and no boots on the ground. You can’t have it both ways Dr. Paul, either we send U.S. troops around the world invading countries like Yemen or we remove the murderers with drone strikes. Take your pick; or we can just hunker down with our heads in the sand like you would like.
Second, Timothy McVeigh wasn’t hiding out in a foreign country directing terror and murder; he committed the act here, and he was captured here; if Awlaki had been foolish enough to ever return to either the United States or an allied nation, we would have gladly arrested him; but he didn’t.
Third, he – Awlaki – decided to side with the enemies of the United States, and at that moment he gave up his citizenship and his rights protected thereby.
It’s time you –Dr. Paul – cared a little more about your fellow American’s healthcare, infrastructure, economy and environment and a little less about the “rights” of a two-bit thug terrorist; and while you’re at it quit wasting everyone’s time with this farce of a presidential campaign.
