Thread: April 24th begins week-long media love affair with Romney.

  1. #1

    Default April 24th begins week-long media love affair with Romney.

    5 primaries take place on the 24th. Unless Dr. Paul wins at least 3 then #PropagandistMedia will have a love affair with Romney for a week after the primaries.

    The Paul campaign has momentum, and it will be fleeting unless Grassroots and the campaign capitalize.

    If you're going to do something then do it now. If you're going to post signs, tweet messages, post to Facebook, donate, share links to "news", call/email state GOP chairman, or yell...then do it now.

    The last thing we want is a fake Gingrich surge.

    Affair? More like second honeymoon

    all kidding aside you make a very good point, these upcoming states are demographically stronger for Romney on average and we need to pump up so we can cut (or even better preemptively diminish) the coming blackout.

    I concure, we have to win something to keep/increase our momentum. If we lose horribly on the 24th, I suspect Santorum people might stay home for rest of the nomination process or go with Romney. We can't lose badly because delegates are awarded proportionally in most states. Campaign also needs money and we need fresh blood to donate. The 24th will also be the time to gauge what Santorum's supporters would do. I really, really, really hope that Santorum supporters will go out of their way to vote for Ron Paul to stop Romney.

    Gingrich is Romney's lackey... but I suspect people will forget all the gaffe about Gingrich giving Romney his delegates if Romney is close to 1144. We should be ever vigilent of Gingrich.

    What are we doing to make people realize that Paul IS electable? That Paul CAN beat Obama? That Paul DOES appeal to Independents & Democrats due to his stances against Fed, bailouts, violation of civil liberties & that Paul is the "Peace Candidate" & therefore, Paul will significantly WEAKEN Obama's support & appeal, if Paul is the GOP nominee

    Romney is NOT winning so much because people like him so much, most know & dislike him for being a flip-flopping liberal, an Obama-clone but the ONLY reason he's doing well BECAUSE people think he's "electable" & "can beat Obama"; we need to offer them a CONSERVATIVE & ELECTABLE option of Ron Paul & we need to tap into anti-OBAMNEY sentiment that Santorum tapped into & for that we need to establish that Ron Paul IS electable & Paul CAN beat Obama, we MUST do this ASAP
    There is enormous inertia — a tyranny of the status quo — in private and especially governmental arrangements. Only a crisis — actual or perceived — produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes politically inevitable

    Romney is a gift that the liberal media is awarding to themselves. They know he doesn't stand a chance against Obama so they favor his nomination. Worst case scenario is he beats Obama, and they have a Republican in the White House that will bend to the liberal agenda. It's a "win win" for them.

    we have a powerful, the romney vs paul flyer and boots on the ground.

    Have people pass these flyers out at polls, it is what would've made the difference in virginia.

    Don't, I repeat..DON'T rely on the campaign to do ads.

    -57% of the executive board is liberty
    -43% of the executive committee is liberty
    -40% of the central committee is liberty

    Getting involved at the local level is the most important thing you can do to WIN

    be ACTIVE, be EFFECTIVE, be ORGANIZED, be STRATEGIC, be VICTORIOUS.

    Agree.

    There is still margin for error (or in this case loss), but if Romney sweeps the 24th, he will have somewhere between 833 and 959 delegates (depending on whether or not his unbound, but pledged delegates stick with him). At that point, Paul will pretty much have to win every remaining delegate to block Romney from getting 1144.

    Does Paul need to sweep on the 24th? No, but without picking up a couple of wins on that day the battle moving forward will need to be won with little if any room for loss.

    The one thing, more than any other thing, that can change the course of this race is for Paul to shock the nation on the 24th and win the popular vote in 2 or 3 of the 5 states that vote that day. NY and PA would be ideal since the two largest states would generate the most media attention.

    We can't control what the media does. However, Paul does have this one last chance to make a stand. After the 24th, if I did the math correctly, it gets to the point where Paul will need to win nearly every delegate remaining to block Romney from eventuality.

    I have been saying for a while there is about a 1% chance to have a brokered convention, this is the 1% chance.

    Actually, no, a fake Gingrich surge means that there still is a race. If Romney sweeps there probably won't be.

    And I'd say that Dr. Paul doesn't need to win three states. If he won even one it'd be extremely embarrassing for Romney's team.

    Three states is more for the math other than anything else. One state, like DE, won't put much of a dent in the delegate count
