"I Agree with Ron Paul" - Newt/Mitt (IT'S A TRAP!)Submitted by BetweenUnemployment on Fri, 01/27/2012 - 12:36
Watching the debate last night, I couldn't help notice how often both Newt and Mitt started off their respective soundbites with, "I agree with Ron Paul" or some variation of that. It happened over and over again. I kept thinking, wow, they're really waking up to at least some of what Ron Paul's been championing over the last 30 years. But then a light bulb went off and that fuzzy feeling went away...
IT'S A TRAP!!!
Newt and Mitt both think that Ron Paul is a non-starter. They think he has no chance of winning. They both, however, have handlers who tell them that they cannot win...without US. So, they have to try and placate us...treat our good doctor with respect and even admiration. Then, corral us all together and make us vote Newt or Mitt, since by that time--their thinking goes--Ron Paul will be out or running third party and they will point to all the times (between now and then) that they were so nice to Ron Paul, talked him up, and basically brown-nosed him [to get to us].
I almost got fooled. But I already got fooled once by Obama. "Fool me once, shame on you...fool me"...as George Bush would say, "you can't get fooled again."
