FOX's GRETA van Susteren w/ RNC Chair re: Ron PaulSubmitted by gsneil on Thu, 04/26/2012 - 11:45
What gets me is the "out of respect" comment (he has said this elsewhere), as though Ron Paul needs patronizing "respect." What the RNC needs to realize is that there are a growing number of real American GOP folks getting behind Ron Paul. This notion of patronizing "respect" for Dr. Paul is superficial and a danger to the GOP. If they fail to seriously dialogue on Dr. Paul's messages (rather than just patronize him) they risk permanent alientation of significant numbers of republicans.
It's clear this patronizing "respect" thing is designed to cynically make Paul supporters think they are playing nice ... but it is obvious political manipulation. What's sad is that they do not understand Paul supporters see right through this. It only proves how out-of-touch the so-called "policital GOP elite" really are...
...real "respect" would mean allowing the primary to continue without declaring Romney the presumptive nominee.
...real "respect" would mean diligently making the election process accurate and sound.
...and so much more...
