Age of Ron Paul - Juan Williams - Fox News OpinionSubmitted by bec on Fri, 11/04/2011 - 11:22
Juan Williams has been saying this is the Age of Ron Paul for months. Numerous other commentators are saying similar things about Paul. Thanks to liberals for the great marketing of Ron Paul. This could garner more votes, but of course RP cannot do it alone without a staff of advisors to provide feedback and keep updating high-level strategy to take RP's broad message to a level that more people can understand during debates and interviews just as he has been able to do during campaign speeches where he gets crowds roaring.
Do people believe that this is the Age of Ron Paul? Does he deserve credit for wanting to reign in the federal reserve bank, educating people on the core root of America's decline and how to fix it, shaping debates, warning people of the detrimental effects of phoney wars, and shaping the philosophy behind the tea party movement? His campaign speeches are more amazing than those of Obama and get across RP's appeal and value. However, how is this credit and achievements portrayed in debates, interviews, and ads?
My opinion is that Romney would disappoint conservatives and get Obama re-elected, but then again I have yet to hear any critiques of Romney other than from Obama's team. An opinion written by Juan Williams on Foxnews.com:
Last week Ron Paul refused to rule out running as a third party candidate if he loses the Republican nomination.
That opens the door for Ron Paul to run as an independent what could the most the biggest, most consequential third party candidacy in American history. Yes, one that is even bigger than Ross Perot’s candidacy was in the 90s.
According to a Gallup poll taken in May, 52% Americans say a third major political party is needed. Only 40% say the two current parties do an adequate job of representing the American people. In the same vein, a CNN poll in September found that 54 percent of people have an unfavorable view of the Republican Party and 48 percent feel the same way about the Democrats.
