View Full Version : The GOP Race: None of the Above

I couldn't find any threads about this article here. It's a very interesting piece about the troubles of the "front runners" in the GOP. The most interesting thing about this article is that it doesn't mention Dr. Paul, but you can see his name between every line.



"But these are not normal times for Republican Party satraps, who can be best described these days as dispirited, confused and just plain tired. Their presidential nominating race has less clarity today than it did a year ago, less even than it did three months ago. Polls point to the political equivalent of a total solar eclipse, with three different Republicans leading in three of the initial primary and caucus states: Mike Huckabee in Iowa, Mitt Romney in New Hampshire and Rudy Giuliani in Michigan. None of these men, at present, would beat Hillary Clinton in a general-election matchup, and each would fare little better against Barack Obama. "If somebody could run as None of the Above," says former McCain campaign chief John Weaver, "he would be the front-runner."

LOL the guy they are looking for is right under their nose.. reminds me of the phone poll I got the other day. They gave me the choice to select Ron Paul from the complete list and when I did I waited for some acknowledgment they had registered my response.

No acknowledgment was forthcoming. Instead the same simple question "who will you support" was repeated but this time Ron Paul was not a choice it just gave the option of "none of the above".

At that point I hung up.

As the OP says Ron Paul is seen between every line. Conspicuous by his absence they prove in a way no supporter could argue that the msm is a fixed deal through and through. I hope they keep it up a long time. Every day they look less credible to more people.

Good job msm, keep up the excellent work !
