I loved his constant hammer of NOT wanting to run our lives. It was beautiful.

Very slick tactic. When he does this, he is imprinting his name and his face and his ideals in the memory of the viewer. This was a name recognition thing and I think it worked really well :)

He needs to declare himself as president in his speeches.

Take possesion.

I didn't notice... now when Bob Dole used to talk ALL the time in 3rd person that was weird. I think even Saturday Night Live made fun of Bob Dole for that.

If you have no name-recognition, you'll have to say your name yourself :D

Yeah 3rd person can be good when used subtley. Wouldn't wanna do it all the time. But since MSM never says his name, its good for people to hear it a few extra times.

Every other candidate does that.

UnReconstructed thinks they suck.

The funny thing is, I have NEVER heard him refer to himself before in the third person, so this was interesting that he would do it twice tonight! Maybe he was trying to boost his name recognition.

This thread is becoming an echo chamber...

So, move on! How does this progress?

Figure it out guys.

While he was saying that they cut away to the audience and several of the kids were just beaming with smiles. I think they really liked how he said that. "I don't want to run your lives, I don't know HOW to run your lives, I have no RIGHT to run your lives."

I'm Ron Paul, the president of the United States.

Now go on children... goo... and be free! :cool:

Here's to hoping that 20-24 years from now, future candidates will bring up the name of Ron Paul in their desperate attempt to line up their ideals with him - the same way the current crop of critters invoke that "most holy" name of Ronald Reagan... heh heh heh!!!

I always find that very weird. I also notice he has only started doing that recently so there must be some reason for it.
