So, 'some' were saying - relax, it is a three day cycle... or whatever..

So, its Tuesday - Any front page news about it?

Oh, and McCain is on the cover of the LA TIMES this morning... wow, I didn't know an endorsement from lieberman was front page news.. hahhahaha

Its laughable at this point in its disgust of the manipulation of the American people.

Tucker actually interviewed his campaign manager, Kent Snyder. But it was a good interview about the Tea Party.

And yes, Lord Xar, there has been a significant amount of coverage. Not what I would call front page. A record breaker like this should have been on the front page of every paper in America.

True, but its a great first step. Cable news networks pick it up and give the story legs. I'm staying confident.

true..

BUT, seriously - I don't know one person who goes to cnn.com to get their news.

I know hundreds who "watch cnn" and "watch the locals news"...... but not many actually who go to cnn.com -- AND those who use the internet for their news, most already know about Ron Paul - personally, we own the internet so I don't think this is hitting the huge numbers of people that the first Fundraiser did.

It was on the front page for an hour, maybe. Also, all the coverage I saw last night was whitewashing him. For example, "Ron Paul raised over $5 million sunday. However, he is still polling in single digits, and he won't win"

Here is another report, news is spreading:

Ron Paul Raises $6 Million in a 24-Hour Period

Judging by what you see on this You Tube video that comes from Ron Paul headquarters in New York this weekend as he passed the $12 million fund-raising mark for this quarter, his young supporters like to par-tay!

But by the time the sun came up Monday morning, the $12 million total was a thing of the past. The current total (as of this posting) on Ron Paul's website is $18.201,000. It comes as a result of what might be the largest single-day fund-raising total ever in presidential history — $6 million on Sunday. (His supporters call these single-day fund-raising efforts 'money bombs.')

It also means that regardless of how he does in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, he'll have enough money to continue his campaign into the 22 states that vote on Feb. 5. And he'll probably out raise all the other Republican candidates, including the very hot Mike Huckabee, for this quarter.

Say what you want about Paul and his Don Quixote-like quest for the Republican presidential nomination, he has tapped into a powerful political vein. His supporters are among the campaign's most passionate, and are willing to go the extra, extra mile for him ... including doing things like renting blimps on their own dime in order to take spread his name around.

Move over JK, Ron Paul is the new champ:





The Real Ron Paul Revolution

The Nation: Republican's Money Bombs Could Change The Face of Grassroots Politics

Dec. 18, 2007


Move over John Kerry, the best single-day primary fundraising record no longer belongs to the prodigious money-collecting machine of the man who won the 2004 nomination.

Ron Paul is now the champ.

Kerry collected $5.7 million on one day in 2004.

Paul collected more than $6 million Sunday. And, unlike Kerry who raised his money from big donors on the day after he won the key primaries that secured him the Democratic nod, Paul is raising his money when it could actually help his quest for the Republican nomination.

Paul could well end up raising more than any of the other Republican contenders and providing the only serious competition for Democratic money leaders Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

But what is really fascinating about Paul's enormous haul of December 16 - in an effort organized by music promoter Trevor Lyman, a Paul enthusiast with no previous political experience - is that it drew 24,940 new donors to the campaign in a single day.
What's the trick?

Lyman, who raised more than $4.3 million for Paul on a single day in November, times his "money bomb" appeals to days that have deep historical resonance for those who fancy themselves insurgents against the current order.

The November appeal came on November 5, the anniversary of attempt by Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London.

Sunday's appeal was timed to coincide with the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.

45 minutes ago austrian news showed a small story about the fundraising, the blimp and ron pauls views (war, money, etc.)
they basically summed it up like that: "even if you aren't with him on everything he says, his message is strong and he is a force to be reckoned with.
