Today was one of the roughest days the campaign has ever hadSubmitted by ckozlgod on Tue, 12/27/2011 - 23:45
Today was a rough day for us.
It seems like every channel I turned on either the TV or the radio was a Ron Paul bash-fest. Half the time I wasn't purposely looking for it, just channel surfing and I see and hear accusations of racism, white supremacy, bigotry etc.
I knew the attacks would be bad, but never this coordinated. It seems like Fox,MSNBC,CNN and every radio station was in cohoots to bring us down. The sad thing is this will continue for the next week until the Caucus. I hope the campaign and Super PAC can fend these off. I haven't even seem RP on tv for the last few days, usually he's on a show every day.
I'm trying not to let it get to me but when you are so passionate about something and then someone comes and crashes the party, it's a buzz kill. The sad thing is people eat this stuff up. I normally check Twitter and search Ron Paul just to see what people say. Normally it's 80% positive but today it was more like 5%. And that's being generous.
I think Iowa will be close. I know we will finish at least 2nd but with how hard everyone has worked not finishing 1st will be a huge letdown. Just like the straw poll the media will ignore a 2nd place finish. But I have faith that we can pull this off. We just need to stick together and continue to convert as many as we can on the main issues like the wars and the economy. I don't think we should let ourselves get overly distracted with this racism nonsense. I just wish whoever wrote it would step up and come clean.
