Why Are We Not Running Ads About The Real Romney?

Please, someone, tell me what is going on with our refusal to take down Willard, who is extremely VULNERABLE, right now, and could easily be taken down by a major loss in TX.

Texas COULD begin a run of stunning "upsets" by Ron Paul in the upcoming primary states. We need ads attacking the flipster, real exit polling in TX, etc.

Also, why is this thread now listed as "OFF TOPIC?"

It was overwhelmingly UP VOTED.

If taking out the RINO-Neocon-NWO frontrunner is "OFF TOPIC" then...well...

I Agree

We cannot be lulled into a false sense of security because of all the delegates that Dr. Paul has been winning. Ron Paul must win either or both California and Texas primaries to have a chance of being nominated. There must be hard attack ads against Romnney shown throughout Texas and California - if any Super PAC is willing to do them then so be it. This "soft" campaign currently ongoing is only helping Romney in securing the nomination.

Do you just not understand

Do you just not understand money?

Ponder this if you can...

In the last two months,. Ron Paul's campaign has received just $1.7 million. Most of that was in the money bomb, and a lot of that was very small donations, meaning after fees, he has much less than that to spend.

Now think of this...

In the beginning of March, Ron Paul had just $1.37 million cash on hand. I am not sure how much he got in March and the beginning of April, but considering there was 1 money bomb in March that got less than $2 million over more than a week, and he was getting about $15-$20,000 a day otherwise, that means he haws received approximately $4 million since the beginning of March. So...add that to the $1.37 million and you have $5.37 million total.

Sounds like a lot, right? Well..considering that in just February alone, Ron Paul spent $3.27 million and another $5.25 in January.

Now, granted, January and February are naturally going to be more expensive months than March and April bit still...he spent $8.5 million in the first two months of the year and at MOST could have spent $5.37 million in the next 2 1/2 months. (Again...not even accounting for the fees on the donations which are much higher percentage-wise than for other candidates since all those $5 donations saw close to 25% of the donation taken out by the credit card fees.)

So...NOW can you figure out why Ron Paul is not flooding the airwaves with commercials? He simply doesn't have the MONEY to run ads in any time slot that would reach any viewers. There is a REASON why the last two requests for money have mentioned an amount that he needed. And neither time was that amount even remotely reached.

Ron Paul is in belt tightening mode unless donations pick WAY up. And for the last 10 days since he asked for $650,000 over last week and this week (almost $50,000 a day), donations have averaged less than $15,000

Did it help

McCains campaign , mainly Sarah, to attack Obama so brutally? No. If you think about it. Her brutal attacks and the way she had the McCain supporters spewing hate instead of concentrating on positives (even though there weren't any IMO) it worked against them. They were already blood thirsty war mongers so it really made them look bad. Nothing , but hate, war, and pure ugliness in that campaign and then add her lack of knowledge....on much of anything.
We are loud and outspoken we get enough grief for that. We need to stay clean and be heard fist and foremost.Ron has real substance. That is where the focus should remain. Be loud and be proud ! Romney is sinking his own ship. The fact that the Dems want Romney to be the opposition is becoming clear to many. Kinda makes them go hmmm. Only 2 possibilities for that. They know they can beat him or they would be just as happy with more of the same. It has become way to obvious that Romney is no threat to Obama.

They are running ads in Texas I believe.

Naw...

Old. We need an ad that just discusses Romney. No need to talk about Santorum and Gingrich.

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

they're still on the ballots

So contrasting with them is important

We need money to do that with.

We have money.

We just have other priorities than knocking down the frontrunner, it would seem.

He has money, we don't

That said, we also have how long before Texas? He only has so much to spend and ads are very expensive. If you don't know, you really should take a look so as to better understand.

You wanted a fiscally conservative Presidential candidate and you have one. He's not going to go in the hole to satisfy cries for ad spending.

He'll do it when he has the money and feels it's the best time and bang for his buck.

My bet is, right before Texas votes, just like he did to every other time almost.

Maybe because

there is no "real" Romney ? Even those that are settling for him know that.

Ron Paul just won Loisiana yesterday

Did he spend millions on TV adds? No. What is happening right before your eyes is the Liberty Movement is reaching critical mass. It is a beautifull thing! Why waste the money on TV adds when you can use it to fly around the country and rally the troops in person. Is Texas a big deal? Yes. And I am sure the good doctor will spend the time and effort there that is required and there is a great chance the voters in Texas will shock the world with a win for Ron Paul but it will have nothing to do with TV. I have said it before and often, the revolution will not be televised!

Obama is doing it for us

Obama and Biden have already started attacking Romney, so there's no need to spend money on ads when they're exposing Romney for us. Plus, we want Romney voters to still think he has this thing all wrapped up, so that less people will make it to the polls, which is better for us.

Why?

BECAUSE ROMNEY WILL CARPET BOMB THE RON PAUL CAMPAIGN WITH ADS. Both candidates are vulnerable it is best to let it be and just gather delegates. The campaign knows what it is doing and RP is a pretty savvy campaigner than most people let up. He's been doing this for the last 30 years.

I think WE should

but I don't think the campaign should. In the event of a brokered convention, do you think it would against or for us if we polarize the Paul campaign against Romney, just as the fallen candidates had? We could drain all our resources trying to expose Romney, but he's just another establishment pawn like the rest of them. Our calling is higher. Paul can be seen as a peace maker at the convention if he doesn't take the role of the polarizer.

But I think Paul supporters should expose him. I'm soon going to be taking my iphone around to people in my town and showing them this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWDJEc92d38 To try to take that internet advantage the youth have to info, and give it to the older crowd. I think shining the light is we need to do, he'll fall into his own traps.

In this marathon race, I think the candidates will become so drained that they'll slip up and show who they really are. If Paul slips and shows who he really is,....uh...it'll just be sweet grandpa Paul. But if Romney slips up (which he has so many times before) he'll just reveal himself as the sleaze ball that he is. Don't attack, just expose!

AGREE look what we have done so far

As I stated below, why should Ron Paul pay for this?
We get all of our information from the internet, so we can sure sent out information also. And love that video. Maybe we should also google that over and over under Mitt's name until it comes up first. We have learned from great manipulators.
I feel protective of Dr. Paul, because once he gets in office, he can protect the Constitution and I wil call it even

my favorite attack is Romney vs Romney

If they would just make a few commericals list the topic, and have a Romney video of how he felt about the topic with the date, and than another clip with Romney talking about how he felt about the topic opposing his first view and the date. It is so important for voters to know that 1) He will say anything for votes, and 2) he doesn't really understand the topic in the first place. Then Ron Paul, consistant for 40 years and I approve this message.

And there is PLENTY of material to chose from.

It isn't Ron Pauls nature to be hateful, but it is ok to expose his wise no nonsense attitude.

I also think that for it would be good to use the Martin Luther King's I have a dream speech to get some of the Santorum and Gingrich voters. " American, don't become so arrogant to think that you are the policemen of the world, or you will have a leader that doesn't even know my name."

perfect example of Romney vs Romney satire

I really was thinking all of the serious speeches, but someone on DailyPaul just posted The Onion's version of Romney vs Romney.

I am putting the Onion version of Romney vs Romney on Facebook

Why should Ron Paul have to pay for the information to get out to the people? Truth is truth. Humor works for Jon Stewart to get hi point across.

Zoo is right...

No point in wasting money and time to beat-down an opponent that's already beating himself! Most-likely, the skeletons in Mitt's closet will come to light, the people will see and the choice will be either Barry or Dr. Paul. HOWEVER!!!! Let's say we spend the money NOW and bury Mitt..."The Machine" will suddenly change the laws, pull another contender out of the closet and form an "anyone but Paul" campaign the the Sheep will gladly follow, because the media will make it cool & sexy somehow...think, Angelina Jolie for President or some crap like that!
Mitt's boat is filling with water and will sink itself soon-enough. Stay focused on the prize dear friend...Ron and his team have a plan, and so far...it's kicking butt!!!

You never attack an opponent

You never attack an opponent when they expect it most. Romney WANTS Ron Paul to go after him NOW so he can focus on anything besides himself and how people don't like him. An attack on Romney now would be like giving him an olive branch, helping Mitt get out of his own quicksand. Why go after an opponent if they're defeating themself?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
