DRUDGE: 'Ron Paul effect' has GOP worried (negative article)

Conveinent how Drudge changed a brief RP mention to this article, away from "Ron Paul Draws Large Applause"...Hmmmmm...

Given the erratic state of Republican politics these days, don't be surprised if a libertarian polls well — very well — in the January primaries.

Ron Paul won't win the Republican presidential nomination, much less the White House, but he is primed for a potentially big run in Iowa and New Hampshire: states that can give a boost to underdog, outsider candidates. Should this happen, Paul can push the Republican Party further toward his libertarian views.

"Ron Paul won't win the Republican presidential nomination, much less the White House..." Now, where have I heard this before? Funny, no one ever said that of Giuliani, Huckster, Thompson, Cain, Perry - makes George Bush look like a genius - Pawlenty, Bachmann, Santorum, et al. Even McCain, the GOP Politburo's poster boy, in the end was unelectable. But Ron Paul powers on, despite the lemmings all saying the same thing in unison, as though independent thought has been banished.

Ron Paul has deep and diverse support, unlike the Sunday morning congregation support base of the religious panderers. This is why the GOP Politburo is worried. Ron Paul doesn't need the GOP. They need him, but over their dead bodies.

Talk is cheap, but money buys the whiskey. Anybody can say, Paul won't make it, but we know he will and we have already put our money where our mouths are, right there in money bomb after money bomb raising over $18 million to date. Watch out for Dec 16. The mother of all money bombs. The other candidates can only dream of such support, alluded to by Romney last night.

Properly analyzed, only Ron Paul has the wherewithal to beat Obama. GOP soreheads be damned. Ron Paul's campaign is an irresistible force, with our without the GOP Politburo. Now that's the kind of reporting that the liars for hire in the media can't replicate. Truth, unadulterated truth.

Looks like Drudge...

Looks like Drudge changed the RP article AGAIN!

This time, the highlight reel for Dr. Paul last night. Acceptable, haha.

didn't want to give Poteat credit

by registering to comment, but noticed the comments were pro-Paulers setting him straight. Way to go.

"If you want something you've never had before, you have to do something you've never done before." Debra Medina

Wow, This is quite wrong.

"Granite State voters, especially younger voters and independents, are pro-choice, support gay marriage and drug liberalization. They also want defense spending cuts, all of which Paul supports."

RON PAUL IS NOT PRO-CHOICE!!
Ron Paul does NOT support FEDERAL laws pertaining to drugs or marriage!

"Such views, and especially his condemnation of America's relationship with Israel, have put Paul at odds with social and religious conservatives. At one recent debate, Paul vowed to cut all aid to Israel and said, "Why does Israel need our help? We need to get out of their way.""

Israel can stand on its own! They are a powerful nation!
Read this and tell me how allowing Israel to defend itself is condemnation of US relations with the country!
Why is trade with Israel NOT seen as a relationship building mechanism?
I would rather have more trade with Israel than more rigged trade with the Chinese.
Newts stupid(and he is not dumb) response to Ron's comment is that we must intervene because Israel will nuke Iran because they are scared. AND PEOPLE BUY THIS DUMB ARGUMENT!
Israel does NOT need a nuke to annihilate Iran. The Mullahs Know they will be destroyed if they attack Israel.

I don't see it as a hit piece...

I thought it to be a good and honest article. The only thing I wish is that it would have mentioned the fact that Reagan had Libertarian tendencies and how the Libertarians relate much more conservative than they do liberal and that the philosophies of Paul's brand of Libertarian/Republican are the moderate agenda to which most American's agree... as no Presidential candidate will win without meeting in the middle which is Paul. Otherwise I enjoyed the article, thanks for posting.

allegedly an article about a Republican candidate, but uses the word 'libertarian' more than the word 'republican'.

Republican establishment is

Republican establishment is too arrogant to worry about Ron Paul.

They will be astonished when their puppet candidates all get their asses handed to them just like it went down in Kentucky when Rand Paul Randslided the shit out of that corrupt Secretary of State Trey Grayson. The Grayson campaign enlisted Dick Cheney, Rudy Giuliani, and Rick Santorum, among other supporters of a neoconservative foreign policy. Yet their attacks did not move the polls -- and here Rand Paul did not completely follow his father's playbook.

RON PAUL ARMY!!!

This is an assault. Its on Drudge..

AAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTAAAAAAAAAACCCCCKKKKKKKK!!!!!!

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul
