CNN / Cafferty: People in Iowa are rallying around someone who, for the first time in a long time, represents real change.

What will happen to the Republican field if Ron Paul wins the Iowa caucuses?


FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

Two weeks from today we'll know the answer…but as of this moment, Ron Paul is the odds-on favorite to win the Iowa caucuses. And that has many mainstream Republicans positively apoplectic.

Despite being largely ignored by the mainstream media, the 76-year-old Texas congressman is at - or near –the top of polls in Iowa as we enter the homestretch in the first 2012 race for the White House.

What's refreshing is Paul has done it the old-fashioned way, with a consistent message and the best outreach operation in Iowa.

Andrew Sullivan writes for the Daily Beast that Paul is generating enthusiasm and support among young voters and Democrats and Independents... in other words, voters who could actually help the Republicans defeat President Obama in November.

Were Bigger than the GOP ... Liberty's rising

The Republicans are wising up, and the ones that sit like a rock in a river will wither down to pebbles and move along as the river of liberty picks up pace.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right. -Henry Ford

The question the GOP needs to be asking...

If they don't support Ron Paul for the nominee and he loses, then Ron Paul supporters will offer enormous support (and/or pressure) for Ron to run 3rd party.

Of course, Ron can win the nomination and beat Obama. And running 3rd party is too much of a disadvantage to consider a real possibility of winning.

But Ron is too much of a nice guy to let us down and not run 3rd party, even if he doesn't want to. The GOP should know the only way to beat Obama is to support Ron Paul.

Wait, I'm confused...

Does CNN know they let this guy talk about Ron Paul for like 5 minutes? Did he get fired?!?! Does CNN have the bomb sniffing dogs out trying to find all the C4 that Faux News just planted?

Oh the media

I love how the second someone gets popular that the rich and powerful don't have on a leash, is immediately a racist/Nazi party/conspiracy theorist... I don't understand how the media can claim to say they don't discredit Ron Paul when they say crap like this when he has been winning! Look at the 2nd place person... If he wins it will discredit the Iowa Caucuses... People aren't that stupid? Are they?

here it is

Does anyone have the video

of the responses Jack read on air??

Is that a play on "we're all keynesians now"?

If so, that's hysterical!! That would be a heck of a rallying cry for the Ron Paul revolution!

You just can't help

You just can't help but have respect for Jack Cafferty.

That was viral worthy

so I sent it viral. Thanks for the post, keep up the great work!!!

My response

Voting Ron in in Iowa is the start of the sign that many Republicans are looking for an "Anti-Gingrich" candidate, someone who is loyal, consistent, not a smooth talker but a steady walker. Someone with radical ideas on how to change the country in the areas that really need changing - like the national debt, bailouts, our wars, and big government in bed with corporations, instead of trivialities like chasing down activist judges, worrying about EMP attacks and "the liberal agenda". Shaking things up with Ron could lead to a less hawkish, bought, and "small government by word only" GOP and could lead to its more conservative roots in actually less government

Ron Paul will win Iowa, but what will the media say?

I love Jack Cafferty's balanced, FAIR, and favorable reporting on Ron Paul.

With Ron Paul's chances of winning the Iowa caucuses ever more likely, I think that unfortunately the MSM will continue to downplay Paul's chances for as long as it can. I once heard a joke that said, "If Ron Paul wins the election the media will declare the presidency irrelevant." It seems like the media will go to extreme lengths to discredit Dr. Paul, and it's a shame, because as Cafferty says, Ron Paul represents REAL CHANGE.

They just discredit THEMSELVES

to the extent that now certain journalists are distancing themselves from their colleagues, who've taken the "ignore, smear, downplay, CO-OPT" thing too way far.

Ron Paul winning shows that THEY AREN'T!


Here's my answer for Jack

If Ron Paul wins in Iowa, Americans of all persuasions will rally around his banner, united by their love of liberty, and make Dr. Paul the GOP's standard bearer. Next, be they Republican, Democrat or Independent, they will stand together and elect him President of these United States next November. If Ron Paul had no chance of winning, as establishment elites disingenuously keep on repeating, then why are these same elites now so panicked by the prospect of a Ron Paul victory in Iowa? The answer is obvious: They know that not only can Ron Paul win, he will win, and not just the Iowa Caucus, but the Presidency.

I Love Cafferty!

that's all..

little does dinosaur media know

If you keep telling a young person they can't have _____, they will want nothing but _____! The GOP has all but said, "don't you DARE vote for Ron Paul." And, they've given their playbook away: they will ignore a win, or "hackers" will skew numbers either way so his win will lack legitimacy. Keep it up, establishment. It's been just a matter of time, and now, OUR TIME HAS COME!!!


you're awesome.

You're kind are few and far between in the media world, thanks for the good words for our man and not being a typical MSM shill.

Notice that Ron Paul beats

Notice that Ron Paul beats Gingrich in Head to Head Polling Against Obama, and Ties Romney. So, if you don't like Mitt RomneyCare, Ron Paul is your best chance at beating Obama.

Mark Simone needs educated

Mark Simone is filling in for Hannity. Has stated several times now that Ron Paul has too much baggage and not electable. Stating that his news letters were racsist and anti-semtic and recomended reading by the nazi party. Here is his e-mail if you think you can help educate him on Dr. Pauls philosophy. marksimonewabc@aol.com I will be doing the same thing as soon as I calm down.

Educate him?

It's hard to educate a schill

It's really simple...we are taking our country back.

The coming tactics of the MSM and the GOP establishment will backfire big time. More people will wake up, take notice of what the big boys are doing to the underdog and get on our side.

Between this....

Between this and the Jerry Doyle endorsement, I think we are seeing the very beginning of something big.



You tell 'em Cafferty!

Its about time someone like Ron Paul should scare the hell out of the Republicans and Democrats, after all the hell they have been giving us maintaining a losing status quo that costs us our prosperity, our peace, and our freedom.

You gotta love Jack Cafferty

Last time around, Jack was one of the few media people who always gave Dr. Paul the respect he deserved.

Yeah, I would love to see Jack as Dr. Paul's press secretary!


God bless Jack Cafferty and Wolf Blitzer

The last 24 hours has certainly see a swing in the MSM's treatment of Ron Paul. Wolf and Jack are both class acts.
One thing I can say about Wolf; he doesn't let his Zionist beliefs color his coverage of Ron Paul. He truly is "fair and balanced."

Cafferty? A definite yes. Blitzer? Highly doubtful

Cafferty has been consistently a fair guy who cares about "the right thing". Wolf, however, gave dr Paul one of those "are you running 3rd party?" interviews. Not a fan of wolf
