Ron Paul spending $2M on TV ads that criticize Romney, Perry and Cain for bailout stances

By Associated Press, Published: October 20

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential contender Ron Paul is opening his wallet for $2 million of television ads that criticize rivals Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Herman Cain for supporting federal spending while touting his own proposal for drastically shrinking Washington’s bottom line.

Paul on Thursday unveiled a 60-second ad that cast the White House hopefuls as spend-happy politicians who are not true conservatives. A second ad, also set to run for two weeks in the early nominating states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, promotes Paul’s plan to cut $1 trillion from the budget, eliminate five Cabinet-level agencies and stop spending U.S. tax dollars abroad on wars or aid.

Talking points

Can't these idiots manage to write an article that doesn't mention this?:

"That leaves Paul in a position to shape the Republican debate, even if the 76-year-old Air Force veteran seems unlikely to win the nomination."

Is it not beyond their capability? Even when they try and say something nice about Ron Paul, they also manage to point this out - in every article by a major newspaper.

It's a double whammy too because they just can't help mentioning his age in the same sentence either.

With the spirit of "black this out"

I'm willing to bet that some of the media actually does this:

He certainly can afford it

The latest 'Black this out' Money-Bomb, which is only one of may impending 'Money-Bombs' cleared much more that what is being spent on these ads. Paul just got more cash since Wednesday that what is left over in the coffers of Bachmann, Huntsman, Santorum, and Cain combined. Ron Paul is in a solid 3rd place for fundraising behind Romney and Perry who instead of getting hundreds of thousand of donations (which is safe to say count for votes) versus donations from corporations which belong in jail if it were those corporations were really people and can't vote because corporations aren't people.

Some annoying and clueless commenters

over there need more feedback.

Somebody

Somebody needs to tell the guy that said RP supporters carry a cricket bat to a baseball game that Ron Paul is the only congressman to jack one out of the park at a congressional baseball game.

This fact wins southern voters, I know.

and now for the red meat issue

Dr. Paul can win on the war issue, or he can win on the Obamacare issue, or he can win on the basic liberty principles evident in his ad "Life", or he can win on the issue of big-corporate backing versus true grassroots support, or he can win on the issue of Federal abuses at every level, or on Big Brother versus respect for privacy, or integrity versus flip-floppers, or he could win a simple 20-mile bike race amongst the candidates in sweltering Houston summer humidity for all the marbles!

But like 4 Aces in hand Dr. Paul has saved the best for last...

“There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” — John Maynard Keynes
