Tea Party candidate who never caught on blames Linda McMahon’s deep pockets

You would think a guy who predicted the economic crisis of 2008 and the recession of 2009 would have gotten a little more traction among conservative Republicans and Tea Party leaders when he ran for the U.S. Senate.

But Peter Schiff has been so ignored by everyone from Jim DeMint to Sarah Palin to Fox News that on Monday he made the unusual admission for a political candidate that he doesn’t have much of a chance in Tuesday’s primary, when Republican voters in Connecticut choose who will face Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal in the race to succeed Sen. Chris Dodd, a Democrat.

“I’m the best candidate but unfortunately I’m not going to be the nominee,” Schiff said in an interview by phone as he criss-crossed the state in an RV.

He immediately softened his admission of likely defeat.

“I’m not saying I’m not going to win. I can still possibly pull it off. But if I end up not being the nominee, it’s just really unfortunate, because not only am I the only person that can deliver the kind of change that the country needs, but I actually have a better chance of beating Dick Blumenthal,” he said.

Schiff’s slip of the tongue is indicative of the degree to which he is an un-politician. But while he is a political outsider, Schiff does not have the advantage of having a PR-friendly occupation, like physician Rand Paul in Kentucky or former NFL player Clint Didier in Washington. Schiff has spent more than 20 years as an investment advisor, and currently is president of EuroPacific Capital, Inc.

With all due respect, you my friend are an idiot. You take joy in seeing Schiff having trouble... as though he somehow takes away from your pressious Ron/Rand Paul candidates.

I can honestly say that after reading tons of blogs during the 2008 election I came to the conclusion that the Ron Paul followers were idealistic idiots.

Second my problem with rand paul, is his the type of person to twist the truth to win. unlike ron paul and peter schiff, they more of a straight shooters.

EDIT: however within jack vs rand, of course the rand is the better candidate but still i feel very uneasy about his word twisting language. in the terms of less or two evils, i would vote for rand in a heart beat however his not like ron paul where i would stop doing what ever and going out of my way to support him by putting yard signs and standing in the freezing Chicago weather waving his sign.

Schiff should continue his campaign in CT and continue to win them over for a run in 2012 if he loses today

Dick will win the seat and the Republican should have a better chance in 2012 as CT voters may want a balance... and McMahon will have burned through 50 mil for nothing. No doubt though she will probably run again recruited by the powers that be to keep Peter out

PAT LOST THE NOMINATION FOR FUCKS SAKE. I am also talking about State Rep & Senator. Dan Forsythe for instance is a libertarian, not a paleocon. Not to mention the FSP is comprised of 99% libertarians as is the NHLA. What kind of great successes are the Paleos (Oh and get your own economists, stop mooching ours) having?

I don't think Rand is a sell out I think he realizes he's on the verge of being elected as a U.S senator, something his father cannot even claim. Rand's playing the game and doing what it takes to be elected.

He rubs alot of people the wrong way and comes across as arrogant and conceited sometimes. Don't get me wrong - he's right on many things - but he's just not cut out for political office. Hard to feel sorry for a guy who says he wants to help fix the economy and makes his living selling investments to people.

A perfect example of why... on C-SPAN's Washington Journal hosted THE POLITICO covering the races across the nation.

Both the POLITICO and C-SPAN coverage on the Connecticut Republican primary. Besides liberal POLITICO and their "JORNOLISM" liberal reporting and marginalizing the right, C-SPAN was well prepared in only showing the GOP race between Republicans McMahon vs. Simmons, it included pictures and polls. No mention by C-SPAN or POLITICO of Peter Schiff.

So even the so-called unbiased C-SPAN has rigged the race to their "Ringers" of Choice.

Peter didn't run a "nice guy" campaign. The amount of people who post here without thinking is extraordinary.

You make these pathetic suggestions as if he had the money from supporters like you to do these things. He had a mere 3 million dollars in the most expensive state in the union, running against a career politician and a heartless bitch with endless pockets and no morals or thoughts to back herself up whatsoever. Considering the circumstances, Pete ran a damn fine campaign.

It really was up to us to get Peter the nomination. The only way we were ever going to win was to have repeat performances of the first money bomb, where people were actually donating in meaningful amounts, and to have the support that all the Ron Paul people pledged to give at one time. He told us long ago hay this was going to be a 20+ million dollar race, so if people were not willing to support Peter that much (clearly evidenced by his low donation totals) they should have said so at the beginning son we could have all saved ourselves some time.

This is 100% correct.

Do NOT waste your money or time on Schiff.

Focus on getting Rand elected as he has a real shot unlike Peter S.

Don't waste your time on this forum then.

Reading this thread almost makes me embarrassed to be part of this forum. Upon coming here I thought the people here were more thoughtful, I guess I may have been wrong.

Yes--political discussions can get heated. Not necessarily a bad thing unless it becomes disrespectful and uncivil.

Saying "Do NOT waste your money or time on Schiff" and "Fuck Rand" does not constitute political discussion.

This thread should be moved to the Hot Topics forum.

This type of stuff happens on all forums Tom (If you think this is bad you should have seen the arguing about the blimp) so don't let it discourage you. We have our disagreements from time to time but in reality we are, for the most part, one big dysfunctional family and you can't take stuff like this too seriously. It will be moved or locked soon enough.

Just thought I'd let all the non-productive people on here bickering that while I was phone banking this morning I caught a woman as she was leaving to vote who was voting for McMahon and SHE'S NOW VOTING FOR SCHIFF! :D

DON'T GIVE UP THERE'S STILL TIME!

Im proud of whatever the outcome is. This race energized alot of constituents, raised name recognition, helped us further learn about the rigged system, and promoted ideas of liberty. Just as RP 08 many chocked off as a waste, you will see many of these seeds sprouting in the years to come around CT.

Whatever the outcome Im cool with. Im sorry but Rand never energized me, most likely he will elected, but he will probably vote the party line anyways.

Im sorry but Im not putting my money and time behind someone I dont believe in.

Well said. The ship of state doesn't generally change abruptly. Just like Kokesh in New Mexico, Schiff's candidacy will have a positive, lasting effect in Connecticut and elsewhere.
