New American:GOP Convention Recap; What Will Ron Paul Say on Leno Show?

In the wake of his “rude” treatment at the Republican National Convention last week in Tampa, several Internet sites are repeating rumors that Ron Paul (R-Texas) will announce a third-party run for the White House.

Adding fuel to this fire is Dr. Paul’s scheduled appearance Tuesday night on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. A representative from the Tonight Show told The New American that it was not their policy to predict or publicize a guest’s purpose for going on the show.

One could always try e-mailing Jay Leno at the Tonight Show and encourage him to ask Dr. Paul if he'd be willing to run as a 3rd party candidate if possible. Dr. Paul can handle the pressure. ;)

"In contrast to the Republican Party, the liberty movement led by Dr. Paul 'cherishes people’s freedom and will not tell them who to vote for,' Wead. 'We are behind the Constitution and want to free the marketplaces allowing people to make money without an oligarchy deciding who gets to have money and who doesn’t,' he added."

Not sure where I heard it

It was said Ron will be making a special announcement.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

just not his style

not the running 3rd party thing, rather Paul making a grand and dramatic announcement on national TV.

Great article and I will enjoy spreading the rumor via socail media and the resulting panicked pants pissing of the "anyone but Romney" folks for the next 24 hours.
