NJ.com: Ron Paul may be a long shot, but he sure has moved the target

These days, presidential campaigns get started way too early.

If you doubt that, consider the fact that the 2008 campaign was already well under way by this time in 2007. It will be four years ago next month that Ron Paul and Rudy Giuliani had the famed fight over foreign policy that launched Paul’s career and began Giuliani’s slide.

It’s worth watching on YouTube, just to get an idea of how much has changed since then. On the stage were 10 candidates. Nine seemed comfortable in the conviction that the eventual GOP nominee would cruise to victory on the strength of the Bush administration’s brilliance in foreign policy.

Thanks for finding this story from NJ of all places.

I'm quite surprised that it ever got published, coming from that state myself and knowing a little about what goes on there in terms of the political climate. This is indeed rare from NJ, a positive story about Ron Paul, or any story about Ron Paul from there!

This is a great article, and I hope it gets some more exposure.

Antal Fekete's open letter to Ron Paul: "Impeach Bernanke"

This is very sharp analysis and calling for Bernanke's impeachment gives focus to the issues.

Wolf Blitzer...

In the clip from the 08 campaign, Blitzer suggested that Ron Paul wanted to be President. Who on God's green earth would really want that job?! No, Mr Blitzer, if the American people were smart, they'd do everything possible to "feather his pillow" in that White House!!

I liked it.

I liked it.

Me too! An exceptionally

perceptive commentary of what really happened in the GOP primaries and '08 election. Dr. Paul won! Not the vote but the battle of ideas. Of course, I have been saying this all along :)

The 2nd comment on that website is awesome.
