I think Ron Paul made a subtle genius move in saying that even some of Obama's supporters are now supporting him. It reaches out to the NH independents and puts a little thought in their head... hey maybe I really should vote for Ron Paul. Especially those who are worried about increasing welfare spending.

I wish he used the time he had to talk about Social Security in detail in that answer. That is where he really differs with Obama that should resonate with NH voters.


Just some thoughts.

indeed. I was a bit worried when he was praising him because a lot of Reps already think he should run as a democrat because of the war. but he brought it around perfectly :)

That was one of his best moments as was his talk on oil prices.

Good catch - said the same thing to my wife. Those who enjoy both candidates might cross over to Dr. Paul if they think Obama is going to win NH.

I thought this too....you gotta remember the Democrat turnouts have been huge.....Ron is better going for the people who were voting for Obama

Homerun. I was scared at first but it came out great in the end when he closed by emphasizing the many policy differences.

I was worried that the commentator would say, "moving along" before Ron finished. Hehe

Amazing foresight since Obama was just attacked for essentially showing preference for Bush's preemptive attacks. Welcome to the REAL change candidate Obama supporters. Don't be afraid of liberty. It is a most envigorating concept.

I noticed that too, and I completely agree.

Obama is percieved as a "Change" candidate as is Ron Paul. And in this election it will be the YOUTH vote that is Demanding CHANGE in our nations politics.

I mean, can you imagine a young informed American supporting Guiliani? or Hillary? or Rommel? The Youth in this country are Largely Anti-Empire, and Anti-Establishment. And they will participate in this election more than any other in history.

Therefore, Ron Paul needs to emphasize that he is a Change candidate AND more importantly, he is the ONLY ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT candidate.

Thus, If the Young people in America really want to stop this war, and really want Change, then Ron Paul is their man because Obama is really the Estabilshment in Disguise.

I thought his take on the constitution was the best moment of the debate. It brought applause, and applause was prohibited.

This was genius not just for NH, but especially for MI. Our primary is a week after NH, and Obama's name isn't on the ballot. I just hope some democrats and independents were watching the Republican debate.

Is MI an open primary for independents?

Genius is the perfect way to sum up that little speech he gave. Trying to steal a few of those Obama supporters while letting the independents know he is the moderate (although very conservative...lol) candidate in the bunch.

MI is semi-open, meaning everyone chooses a Dem or Republican ballot when they get to the primary - we don't register with the parties, so Democrats are welcome to take Republican ballots.
