Dr. Paul Attacking Romney

I know we all want a Paul v. Romney debate to go down before the Texas and California primaries so Dr. Paul can get some air time exposing Romney for the fraud he is. But since that is unlikely to happen, has he made any REAL attack ads directed towards Romney or publicly called him out, other than calling him a moderate and such. I can't speak for Dr. Paul's relationships, but I feel his cordiality/friendship with Romney is not only hurting the campaign, it's hurting the American people. Romney can't beat Obama without us, and I'm afraid of what this country might become if Obama's reelected. We've seen him destroy the other candidates this season, it's time to end the niceties and attack Romney publicly. Thoughts?

IMHO...

There is zero need for Dr. Paul to attack Romney. It is painfully obvious that most republicans do not like or support Romney already. I have asked so many people and have yet to find one that actually "likes" him AND since it's about the delegates and not the preference polls...it really serves no purpose.

I truly believe that even died in the wool republicans have a sense that Romney is being forced on them whether they like it or not...and that will do more for us in the long run. Dr. Paul can take the high road and STILL win over hearts and minds.

As he has stated many times before...he does NOT attack PEOPLE..ONLY their positions. In Romney's case, Romney has attacked his own positions enough without any comment needed by Dr. Paul.

Have Faith, stand strong, and trust that Dr. Paul knows what HE is doing.

Died in the wool, lol.

They expired in their wool suits.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

hahahaha

dyed...sorry. It was super early for me and I was still half asleep. ;p

Dr. Paul brings life into this world and his speech reflects

giving life to individuals through the love of liberty. Dr. Paul is fearless, strong, brave, courageous. He knows that those who attack others do it out of FEAR. He knows that when people go on the attack it is a clear indication of feeding fear.

Attacking is like throwing a boomerang...throw it out and it comes back sometimes even more powerful. Dr. Paul wants Liberty for all that that includes Mitt Romney.

Dr. Paul could have easily said: "Once you lose fear you have nothing else in this life to lose." President Paul didn't get this far by attacking others. He sticks to the message for this is the message that will ring true way long after he is gone. Ron Paul is a Master like Moses, Jesus, St. Paul, Martin Luther King, Jr.

fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate

Coming straight from Carol and Ron's mouths about the "friendly"

ties with Romney---Carol stated in her Las Vegas interview at convention the friendliness is with the Romney sons and their grand kids and kids. Yesterday on Kudlow Ron said something about family stuff with the Romneys. People need to get over the love fest talk. It's not there.

To be honest, I don't think

To be honest, I don't think Dr. Paul is too eager to do the debate either because he hasn't asked for it. He has said he would be willing to do it, but I don't think he wants to attack Romney. I think it sucks, believe me, but that is the way Dr. Paul is. I believe he trully likes Romney and I think he just doesn't feel comfortable doing it. Probably Romney knew this and that is why he never really went after Dr. Paul either.

....honestly. I still can't figure that out every time I hear it.

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

Believe me, I'm with you. I

Believe me, I'm with you. I don't like it cause Romney is using it in his favor.

Dr Ron Paul is not about attacking,

he is about spreading the Message. The attack on both Mitt and Barry is coming from MSM. Cnn and Fox et al, are like the Calico cat and the Calico Dog...ripping each other to pieces!!! Let the Good Dr get on with his work, and let MSM do all the dirty work. Power and preys to all those who work so hard to bring about the Ron Paul Revolution.

LOL

Romney??? LOL!!!

little harsh my peeps

I halfway agree with this cat. We are in a position to sprint to the finish line, but we are still jogging... Our opponent is wobbly in the boxing ring but we don't deliver the KO punch. I agree with treg's comment but what is the harm of making Romney look bad?.. Obama another four years? Better yet, we can win this. We should try to get Romney out of the picture. But I'm also hesitant on challenging Paul's strategy. He is brilliant, smarter than me... better looking. The man has done no wrong yet in this election, so why question? I'm convinced! Don't question Paul! He is doing awesome! It's just the first time for me this election season that I don't get his strategy. But like I said. He is smarter than me.

Thanks for halfway

Thanks for halfway disagreeing without resorting to insulting me. Honestly, my first experience participating in this forum has been pretty unsettling. But I'm going to VA CD 2 delegate election on Saturday and I'm going to be voting for stealth delegates. It would just be nice if they didn't have to be stealth. But you're right, he is smarter than us and knows what he's doing. But this anticipation until the convention is killing me!

Don't worry...

...we DO NEED to attack Romney before TX if we want any real chance at winning the Republican nomination. The veterans of this movement understand that. Some here are just so willing to be led by the nose by poor campaign strategists who think THEY know it all. I'm not saying I do, but I am saying there is ZERO reason not to be attacking Romney hard NOW, and I've been saying it since Santorum quit, and will continue to say it.

Ron Paul is getting some very bad advice if he thinks not attacking this cat when he is vulnerable to being KNOCKED OUT NOW has any long term benefit to it.

easier and cleaner looking

to just let Mitt make himself look bad

From watching RP all these

From watching RP all these years, I don't think he generally attacks people very well. He does a great job in ads, but in-person, he seems reluctant to smack people down, even though he has plenty of ammunition.

Winning debates today is also very much about presentation. Romney could clean Paul's clock in a debate because he can cater to a crowd.

I strongly

Disagree that Mitt could beat Ron in a head to head debate. He hasn't beat him in any of the debates on issues! Rommney is supposedly about jobs RP is about Freedom!

The OP sounds confused...

On one side he's expressing his concern that Romney can't beat Obama w/o Paul and having Obama for another 4 yrs would be an obama-nation.

But he concludes by saying that Paul should attack Romney. Huh?

My thoughts are that you sound quite confused.

"Romney can't beat Obama without us"

Right, and Paul knows that. So your point is...?

You might want to stop and think about this for a second. If Ron Paul (and me) believe there is not a dimes worth of difference between Obama and Romney, then your choice comes down to Obama = 4 more years and 100% done. Time to bring on Rand Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Or.... Romney wins = 4 years and no GOP challenger against Pres. Romney for reelection. Romney then either wins another 4 years or a democrat wins a new 4 years. What difference does that make? Answer: Our R3VOLution waiting 8 years. Ouch.

Ron Paul cannot say it, so I will. When it comes to Romney vs Obama, I am wanting Obama to win, for the simple reason, he's done in 4 and we can continue our Revolution with Rand Paul in 4 years. If Romney wins, the R3VOLution is waiting 8 years. Think about it.

Perhaps you prefer to have Romney win, and get 8 years as President?

No but your

first Post is pretty much as a know it all! Timing is everything have trust RP knows what he is doing! have you ever heard the saying give em enough rope and they'll hang themselves. Also it cost Money to attack and we already have someone doing our bidding for us, (Mr.O-Bomb-a!
Welcome to the show.

freedomdreemzz

if you've even been paying attention these past couple weeks

our campaign strategy is being anything but nice toward the romneys with delegate attacks, with paul being the face of our movement not being particularly antagonistic just in case we get a chance to absorb some potential defectors from the romney campaign

but you obviously haven't been paying attention, which begs the question of why the useful timing of the likes you coming in the middle of our full out effort with a 27 minute old account and wish we would divert some attention to play useless politics that just so happen to help socialist obama, right on the evening when obama dips in the poll in a 3 way race no less.

edit: gonna vote me down? grow some balls and learn to express yourself

I have paid attn

I've been following this campaign very closely. But when he's being interviewed on nationally televised programs and says something like he's "still thinking about [endorsing Romney]", albeit "not soon" or "it's unlikely to win the nomination." It's pretty frustrating hearing him talk like that, as well as giving up an opportunity to expose Romney. There's a large amount of voters out there that don't get on YouTube and watch MSM instead. And it'd be nice for Ron Paul to get some delegates that were bound to him.

Dr Paul did not endorse McCain last time around

he's just making nice to the cameras,they ask and he gives them a polite non answer. It's not presidential to go on the attack personally. Notice he always remains cool and collected when under verbal attack himself. And then calmly states his point. Also he doesn't show them all his cards. What if the real plan all along was to expose and document the corruption in the primary process, then using that process by the GOP's own rules rack up delegates until Mitt did what he did yesterday, throwing his lawyers out to try to reverse the conventions? And got Priebus to violate rule 11 along the way? Remember Dr Paul has insisted on his people sticking strictly to the GOP's own rules. And now I believe Mitt took the bait and has no leg to stand on. And it wasn't Dr Paul looking like a whiner, bringing up the fraud himself, no it was Mitt who caused his own undoing.
