Gingrich Cancels Campaign Event, Poor Attendance - Ron Paul Draws over 1,000 at Same College

What? The media tells us Newt is 'first' in polls?

"CHARLESTON, S.C.- Newt Gingrich has cancelled a campaign appearance in South Carolina because of poor attendance."

"There were just a few dozen people in the audience at the College of Charleston's arena, where the event was taking place."

A great new article on Ron Paul and conservatives in general

That is an excellent article

You should post it in it's own topic.

I support Ron Paul because I want the truth.

Any intentional misleading or distortion of the facts to me by anybody is wrong and contradict Ron Paul's principle.

The truth is that Gingrich is a fake candidate

He's not on the ballot in his home state

LOL!!! Somebody's chain is being pulled!

How rotten to the core this

How rotten to the core this place has become.

You are right. You have

You are right. You have people that presents facts, that go against the original poster's headline, which some don't like, so they argue against the facts. It is a sad day when we have people here doing the exact same thing the media does. Distort the truth.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

The subject of the post is media distortion

The subject of the post is media distortion, not event attendance. That is probably what is confusing you. You're not seeing the forest for the trees.

And I think Tudo is talking about the country, not Daily Paul.

why don't you prove your case

why don't you prove your case to me. Support it with facts. I have done so throughout. Now it is YOUR turn... Let us see if you can support it..... no more talk..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

How many phone calls did you make today?

Just curious. Or did you spend your whole day here arguing about your misunderstanding.

Thought so.

Thought so.

All you guys need to calm

All you guys need to calm down. Brian is not arguing against the support of Ron Paul. He's just saying that there doesn't need to be a distortion of the facts with Gingrich's cancellation of his event due to low turnout. While Ron Paul stayed and spoke to the same group at the same place.

You can easy tell in the post, that the articles are for two different days.

Friday is the day that Gingrich canceled the event due to low attendance. Thursday is the day that Ron Paul spoke to the 1000 people audience.

So Brian middleton is not arguing about Ron Paul's support or lack of. He's just saying look at the articles and information presented before jumping to conclusions.

EXACTLY!! Thank you... There

EXACTLY!! Thank you... There is a tendency for a lot of people., not just supporters, to jump on headlines without looking any further. I was not the only one. There were many others to point this out. I don't care about Newt. I care about the truth!!

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

It is an obvious spin.. and disgusting

for one the MSM chose to show Perry's speech of him dropping out over Ron Paul's speech (which was amazing) to the young minds of SC. They chose during Ron's speech to focus on a dropout. They chose to talk about the dropout instead of switching to Ron's speech, The MSM chose to forget the younger vote of SC bc they dont like how encouraging it is and that is obvious when Newt can not even gather enough fans to have a speech.

This spinning and weaving continues... but the MSM can not act local, they're reach can not extend down as far as our reach can extend up....

think...

what can you do in your local area to make a powerful impact to a multitude of potential voters... who do you have access to?

start scheming...

we are far more powerful than their SuperPacs because we are with the voter in the grocery store, in the library, in the mall, theater, golf course, beach, downtown...

all they have is the T.V.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

This is just as misleading as the main stream media. Shameful

This is just flat out wrong and despicable. The event pictured with Paul was on Thursday, bully Pulpit Series at College of Charelston, Gingrich's cancelled event was on Friday at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Ron paul spoke at this event a hour after Gingrich's cancelled time slot. A 45 dollar day pass was required to see either speak at the event and had maybe 100 people in the crowd because of that. I was there, hell I'm on the C-span archives for both events and the Paul picture linked. Paul followers should know better about being misleading.

Your post is shameful and misleading!

The media is using the SRLC at College of Charleston to report that Ron Paul's crowds are dwindling.

When in fact, Ron Paul's speech the day before at College of Charleston drew over 1000.

Get with the program!

Who's side are you on?

Liberty or the establishment media?

Really?

I'm a Paul supporter, I followed him around all Thursday/Friday and attended the debate. Two wrongs don't make a right and the way this is written isn't a fair representation of the events.

It presents the facts.

You are interpreting them in favor of the media, rather than Ron Paul.

I don't believe you.

Proof

This website has the most paranoid base of Paul supporters ever. You do realize that you can be pro Paul and be critical of his supporters?

That picture you posted was hilarious... good job

but you have to realize the people on this site are super passionate, not paranoid. In-fighting is the last thing we need here. We can all agree the MSM will unfairly mistreat Ron Paul because his message is very strong, making this post completely understandable as apathy from stifled dissent rises higher and higher.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Thanks

I'd say the "passion" is closer to ignorance, and the blind down voting for a detailed response doesn't help the point either.

Rob, you can't reason with

Rob, you can't reason with some of them here. they are just partisan zealots who will see no wrong at all. They ignore the facts as presented, won't even argue the facts, but then just argue their circular logic based on their erroneous non-factual conclusion.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

THANK THANK YOU!! I;ve been

THANK THANK YOU!! I;ve been trying with a few others to point this out, but we have been bombarded with nay sayers and fact deniers...!! Maybe they will remove this from front page...!

This is freakin unbelievable.

The man is supposed to be 'surging' right now and having all the 'momentum', but he can't even get hundred people to watch him speak? Well, something is not right then.

Don't forget Gingrich only started to get 'momentum' AFTER Herman Cain was destroyed, before that he was polling single digits and nobody took him serious as a contender.

The whole Gingrich 'momentum' seems very much media manufactured momentum.

I want PAUL vs Mittens...A.S.A.P!!

Newt really is a media myth

His sole support comes from media, their masters, and the people foolish enough to trust them.

Dude, read, please. Newt

Dude, read, please. Newt cancelled event that he AND Ron Paul were scheduled to speak at. Ron Paul got the same number of people. About 30. Newt cancelled, Paul stayed. If the poor attendance is bad for Newt, it woud be bad for Paul too. To suggest otherwise woud be flagrant hypocrisy.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Did Gingrich ever draw a crowd of 1000?

If not, what difference does it make? The topic reports Gingrich cancelled an event for lack of attendance, and it reports Ron Paul drew a crowd of 1000 in the same town and college. If Gingrich had drawn a crowd of 1000 at the same college, at any time, then it would not be fair contrast. My understanding is he doesn't draw any crowds ever.

Ok that's a valid point you make.

But how much support DOES Gingrich really generate? Does he get the same big crowds as Paul gets? Does he inspire the same ammount of enthusiasm? Have you ever met someone who ACTUALLY LIKES Newt Gingrich!??

I keep wondering where all these people come from who vote for the likes of Gingrich and Santorum.
