The man is right though.

It's NOT HARD to make a new post on the site. It's such a small thing that it's just annoying that they haven't bothered to change it.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Jesse Benton

December 17, 2007 703-248-9115


ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – Congressman Ron Paul’s presidential campaign had a record fundraising day yesterday.



In a 24-hour period on December 16, the campaign raised $6.026 million dollars, surpassing the one-day record of $5.7 million held by John Kerry.



During the day, over 58,000 people contributed to Dr. Paul’s campaign, including 24,940 first-time donors. Over 118,000 Americans have donated to the campaign in the fourth quarter.



The $6 million one-day total means the campaign has raised over $18 million this quarter, far exceeding its goal of $12 million.



“We have the right message: freedom, peace and prosperity,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign chairman Kent Snyder. “We also have the right candidate: Dr. Ron Paul.”



Congressman Paul will be campaigning in Iowa today hold including a press conference at 12:45 pm at the Des Moines Marriott in the Des Moines Room.

Uhhh... they have not updated their site and it does seem a bit odd.

They sent out two campaign emails yesterday and posted them on the web-site.

They also, apparently, sent an official news release to the media shortly after midnight.

You would think they could have also updated their web-site with this press release so that Ron Paul supporters and other media types could quickly find accurate information this morning.

But... ummm... not sure I would fire anyone over it or type in caps or anything like that (looking left, looking right... waiting for RonPaulFan to attack) :eek:

Doesnt matter when the media is quoting the official website- which the campaign hasnt had the courtesy to update. Don't they know this was done by us? We EXPECT the campaign to capitalize on the teaparty as much as possible, otherwise, whats the point of a mass donation?

Dude everything will be changed eventually. But.... IF you are worried about the message on the website, you shouldnt be, becuase that message would be like they are preaching to the choir. The visitors there are mostly umm us.

They and WE should be worried about new publicity, to new people, in new venues.

It's tough to update a website when it's being crushed by tens of thousands of hits per second from people wanting to get in a last-minute donation or watch the tally tick over at midnight.

RonPaulFan should apologize for his crass diatribe. It's totally uncalled for. The $6 million speaks for itself.

I'm so glad that what little press decides to report on this will come to the rpforums and see the title of this thread. Or the 18,000 new donors. You should check out motivational speaking as a career. Learn self-control.

MMmm over-reaction - yes.

Appropriate sentiment - YES.

We all know the MSM shows the web site when doing their coverage, they have every other time.

This is sadly one more example of a prime opportunity missed.

People who gave deep until it hurts do have an expectation that the campaign will properly capitalize (ha-ha) on the situation.

It's disappointing to wake up and find out that the campaign staff fumbled the snap on the last play of the game, after we played 59 minutes of history making offensive game.

The intensity and shrill-ness of the OP is what's 'shocking' but...he's outraged, and while I am not as outraged - I've been there before, we all have I'm sure.

Myself & 1000's of other RP fans stayed up after midnight waiting to see the final tally. I can think of no good reason why HQ's website doesn't post a prominent update of the final record breaking tally yesterday.

We did the TeaParty in part to force the MSM to front page our record breaking story, but how can we get mad at the MSM for failing to cover this when our own candidate won't post this record breaking story on his own webpage? :(

To me, this is highly discouraging. For anything to be effective it seems the effort has to be in the hands of grassroots and out of the hands of HQ. Makes me rethink how much energy I should put behind the campaign vs. grassroots.

I just emailed them about this issue. They are dropping the ball big time and it's not rewarding to see ronpaul2008.com with old news after a big day like yesterday. I said to them "new people are going to be curious and are going to check out ronpaul2008.com". I thanked them in advance for more "attentiveness".

OMG, I was expecting Ron Paul to post a video update thanking everyone personally for donating yesterday. THIS SUCKS!!!!!!11 Fire the web guy, the videographer, and the rest of the staff.

There is always something to complain about in this world. If you truly feel this way, then I suggest moving your ass to Virginia and manage the site yourself. I'm sure they could use the help and would let you do it if you offered to.

On the flip side, why not the webmaster apologize for the delay in updating the site? IMO, todays' morning time (12/17) is/was a very crucial one...

I'd also like to know why the campaign is not counting phone donations and why they say the $400K added last night will not count. This all seems so strange to me. If they are not going to add the offline totals to the 12/16 totals then which day are they going to add them to and why.

They don't have to fudge any numbers but don't hurt the Tea Party numbers either.

I don't remember anyone from the campaign informing us NOT to call in donations and in fact there were several posts on these forums asking people to use the call in method.

Seems to me the HQ should have posted a total of at least $6.3 million on the website last night.

Seriously, Ronpaulfan, I know you're upset at the campaign, but the last thing we want is people checking out ron paul sites because of news on google.com or politico.com and coming here to see you're (even if it is justified) hatred for the campaign.


(just in case you can't see normal text)

Please change the title.

Why before? That money came in during the tea party or at least $300K of it did. If not then how much did they get from offline donations yesterday?

Just so we would know what came from the teaparty itself and what came before it. So instead of adding both donations from before and during like they did this time and confusing everybody they would seperate both donations

If they did not think of this prior to the beginning of the tea party then that is another fault with HQ.

Don't they have computers there? How difficult could it be to see how many offline donations came in DURING the Tea Party and simply add that to the total and post that complete figure on Ronpaul2008? It's basic stuff.

after such a wonderful weekend, i wake up to this tripe?
