Iowa Independent Slams Ron Paul

http://iowaindependent.com/56506/iowa-2012-gop-presidential-...

....U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is included in this edition of power rankings by the most narrow of margins. Many of our panelists — even those who had previously been ranking him in the middle of the top tier — have virtually eliminated their support in the wake of Paul’s comments that he would not have gone into Pakistan in order to carry out a mission against Osama bin Laden.

“Intellectually, I think I get what he was saying — that we shouldn’t have gone in without alerting Pakistan authorities. But I also believe it showed his lack of political immaturity for him to say it in the way he did and as soon as he did,” notes a panelist. “It made him look weak. It made him look old. It made him look foolish. I’m quite sure that’s a failure trifecta.”

But it isn’t all bad news for Paul.

“If this were a primary and not a caucus I could see Paul doing much better because of Democrats crossing over to vote for a libertarian who shares some of their foreign policy misgivings of the U.S. as a superpower. I do think he will get even more Christian conservative support this go around because many of those voters are more up to speed on the economic issues he champions than were four years ago.”

"lack of political immaturity" says one panelist.

Yes you are right. RON is very "mature," which quite frankly you folks don't seem to be or are just showing your basic public school educations. Dumb boiling frogs just can't be trained.

I saw that too. I think they

Why do people not know of his

Why do people not know of his speech to the house in 2001 about sending in a team to take out the guy? This is so foolish when he is on record in a strong way. In fact, that is what Obama eventually did. This is not opinion, it is FACT.

Because no one reminds them,

Because no one reminds them, least of all Ron, which is exactly what he should have done if he were good at communicating his points.

Unfortunately he's not. He is mediocre at best and only us few, intellectually honest, who listen and dissect his words with reason, are able to understand exactly where he's coming from. The sheeple on the other hand don't have a clue and only hear "I wouldn't go into Pakistan after OBL". In today's world 10 years is ancient history, so if we want Ron to win, we certainly can't rely on what he said even 4 years ago.

Now is what matters, especially in interviews on MSM and especially on touchy subjects.

I hope people react to these falsehood

We need to send them some emails letters phone calls...to educate them.
That newspaper is an important one in Iowa -- they have impact.
