TICK, TOCK...TICK, TOCK...Throwing Down The Gauntlet. Hey Paid Staff: Attack Romney Now!Submitted by SteveMartin on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 08:26
WE ARE ABOUT TO LOSE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION BECAUSE THE PAID STAFF REFUSES TO ATTACK MITT ROMNEY IN ANY MEANINGFUL WAY. I HAVE SOME THEORIES ABOUT WHY, BUT THIS IS BECOMING A VERY, VERY SERIOUS ISSUE....WE MUST RUN HARD-HITTING STATEWIDE ATTACK ADS IN TEXAS STARTING TODAY, AND WE MUST WIN TEXAS, OR IT IS OVER, AND DONATIONS WILL DRY UP. I am not trying to be a trouble maker, but I love my country too much to pretend I don't see this!!!
I have been a Ron Paul supporter for decades, and was the first person from Maine to come out for him five+ years ago when he announced his first run for the Republican nomination. Heck, I can remember when the very first Ron Paul meetup group had a dozen posters on it in January of 2007, and it was just me and Justine Lam of the campaign. "The Granny Warrior" (Linda Honeycutt) told me plenty about the loose morals at the national HQ.
I was the guy who called out Jesse Benton after the paid staff refused to verify the Ames Straw Poll vote in 2007 (remember that Jesse?) because he just plain stopped going after T.V. appearances for Ron after we were declared 5th at Ames (when we had either the first or second most supporters at Ames.) After I called and complained, that same afternoon, Jesse went back and DID HIS JOB and got us three appearances, after two weeks of NOTHING.
I was one of many who pulled the FEC reports on the 2008 campaign and discovered that millions of dollars were spent on production of ads that never ran, and I was the only radio host who reported that.
I was the guy who outed the bankster scion that Debbie Hopper hired to "run Maine" who left the country for the two weeks leading up to our state convention, had an open "international line" on our supposedly-private strategy conference calls, promised we would meet privately before the convention and then held the meeting right next to an ongoing RINO State Committee meeting and let the RINO State Chair walk right in on our session, promised us "5 or 6" delegates to the national convention, and then we got only one (who was pretty much a RINO himself.)
I was the guy who (based on Linda's observations) called out the Arlington staff for immoral drinking parties, homosexual sex in the national HQ, etc., and then was told these things never happened, only to have them eventually confirmed by Debbie Hopper on RonPaulForums.
In short...I have had an AWFUL LOT to be skeptical about entering this second Republican race, and I must say I have been very pleased with the improvements in the quality of the staff, and the truly patriotic long-standing credentials of some (far from "all") hires this time around. It has been a lot, lot, better this time. Even Jesse has done better...
BUT...and here is the HUGE "BUT"....NOW IS THE TIME TO BEGIN ATTACKING ROMNEY WITH THE HARDEST HITTING OF THE MULTITUDE OF FACTS ABOUT THIS CAT THAT WOULD SINK HIM and change the entire race. I've been waiting since Santorum dropped out for these ads to begin. What are we waiting for?!?!? Any further refusal to attack Romney hard can only lead to one thing: DEFEAT.
Here, then, is the gauntlet...and I do not care if it costs me my well-deserved campaign endorsements to Tampa, or the Maine State Republican Committee seat (which I'm pretty sure it will.) It must be said.
You people either take on Romney HARD AND FOR REAL WITH ALL GUNS BLAZING NOW or questions about the real intent of this campaign will be raised again on my show and everywhere else you can think of. We will NOT permit the hard-working contributors to be hoodwinked for a second time. Yes, this is a movement, and I get that, but it SURE AS HECK BETTER BE A REAL PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN AS WELL this time after what was done to us in '08!
