Jesse Benton fired as campaign manager! (satire)

*This is not a Benton thread*

Jesse Benton has just been fired from his position as Ron Paul's campaign manager to make room for the grassroots individual to take over his duties. Due to his lack of faith or ability to lead a grassroots revolution of the magnitude of Ron Paul's it was unanimously decided, with the support of Ben Swann, The Examiner.com, Ron Paul Biographer Brian Doherty, Slate.com's David Weigel, and Adam Kokesh, that individuals immediately take over press release duties. To fulfill their new duties as the new leaders of the campaign grassroots individuals must send out thousands of micro-press releases individually tailored to their friends and family in the form of facebook and news article comments and email messages. All posts and articles claiming falsely that Ron Paul has suspended his campaign will be refuted with facts from those who are actually in charge of Paul's revolution. Let's offer congratulations to Ron Paul's new campaign manager, Mr. Grassroots Supporter!

[end sarcasm laced with truth]

Let this thread not bash Benton but rather highlight the need for Paul supporters to respond to all comments they come across online claiming Paul is quitting with facts. Agree or disagree with Benton or the campaign's chosen path but please unite on the need to spread positive truth to all who were just duped by the MSM, again.

Get Off of It

I am sick of all this Benton bashing, Get off of It.

Why would Jesse Benton get

Why would Jesse Benton get fired for doing his job and writing e-mails in which Ron Paul himself read, agreed with, and OKed EVERY SINGLE WORD before sending it out?

I am just amazed that so many of you feel that Ron Paul is the most incompeten man on the face of the earth. And that is what you MUST think if you think that Benton wrote and released those e-mails behind Ron Paul's back and then Ron Paul said NOTHING to fix the situation.

delegate

National delegate that uses an alias....Shill

There is not enough control to fix

this damage. So give it up people. Benton put it out and it was backed by Ron. You are getting this from a delegate to the National Convention.
We are done for. There is so much crap going on in this campaign right now you could fill a train with it. We are not being told the complete story. Makes me sick to my stomach. Nothing but lame excuses. People are being disrespectful and bla bla bla. Like I said lame excuses. When George Washington crossed the Potomac he had no intentions of being respectful to the British and one thing for sure he did not get half way across and then turn back like Benton just did. No we are now looking at blood in the streets. Home Land Security orders 400 million rounds of 45 cal hollow points a round outlawed by the Geneva Convention. Once this happens and people are left licking their wounds then we might just get our country back but it is going to be very painful so make no mistake about that.

Campaign doesn't care and knows it has paul supporters

in the palm of their hand to do whatever. hence you still have a moneybomb in the midst of their continued condescending behavior towards rp supporters. they can't wait to reveal what they've been cooking with romney for so long.

jj

yeah.. more control

in the hands of grassroots supporters would have been nice. They could have asked us what direction we'd like to see them go. What steps we'd like to see taken. And share info about successes and obstacles so we could help make decisions.

I am so tired of these Sunshine Soldiers!

Are you people dense???

This is clearly a call to supporters to help with damage control!

LOL

What was that? LOL

I like to pretend it's (at least symbolically) Ron Paul

running after Benton who has just panicked us all here at the DP

but it's just some guy and his out of control dog 'Fenton' panicking deer.

Can we officially coin the term "You just pulled a Benton"?

when you keep talking to try to clear things up only to make matters worse

What a load of ben or yummy as a benton

In Japan "ben" means faeces. A benton is a boxed lunch.

We are like the mechanism of a watch: each part is essential.

yes

run with it:D

HAHA!!

Funny! Maybe it's Benton chasing after the MSM herd :)

Heved as in bullshit upon a site?

Prove it.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

LOL

...there's always somebody who takes a post too literally.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

And in this case

that is a whole lot of somebody's. Enough to derail this thing completely.

Read more than the title

please

I like this one.

"Jesse Benton has just been fired from his position as Ron Paul's campaign manager to make room for the grassroots individual to take over his duties."

I don't really find your thread funny, clever or worthwhile and that's after reading it the first time through. The second time was just as crappy.

How about a 3rd?

3rd time's a charm

Ron Paul signs executive order

banning Benton threads!

This is not

a Benton thread, but that was funny

Ha...

...I'm not as anti-Benton as some here, I feel he's being made a scapegoat, but anyway I dig this, well done Sir. Ultimately, we DO run the show.

Let this thread not bash Benton

but rather highlight the importance of everyone one who reads it to respond to all comments which claim Paul is out with facts!

Yes indeed
