What was once thought to be a done deal for Ron Paul, having secured an official spot on the first ballot at the RNC, is all of the sudden being portrayed by the media as just the opposite.
Monday witnessed a seemingly new strategy continue on the back of last week's MSNBC report that Ron Paul somehow no longer has the required five state “plurality” of delegates needed to qualify for the RNC's first ballot.
Although, back in early May, FOX News had already done what no one else in the so-called 'mainstream' wanted to do, admit Ron Paul had already secured a first ballot position with a five state delegate plurality.
No one in the media wanted to touch an unfolding reality that was being hard-sold as a virtual impossibility just weeks and even days earlier. The Ron Paul 2012 campaign was having incredible success, despite an alternate, hidden campaign to make people believe otherwise.
But now, possibly hoping few remember the earlier reports, the establishment and its media are going with the new reality that Paul actually still needs one more state and Saturday's upcoming Nebraska state convention may be Paul's "last hope."
