Jesse Benton, the national campaign chairman for Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential bid, flatly told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that Paul “will not endorse Gary Johnson.”

Is it me

or does it not seem that Benton takes his orders from someone else and not RP.

I'm ready to take some constructive criticism here but this just is bugging the living shit out of me.

It's Trigvy Olsen...

...this was explained in the interview Kokesh did back in June with former Ron Paul campaign lady, Penny Freeman.

Benton is an idiot Jethro, "handled" by slick GOP elite criminals. What a travesty.

Here's that interview with Penny Freeman...

Yup. The evidence is overwhelming.

Yup. The evidence is overwhelming.

How Ron Paul allowed these people in the Inner Sanctum of his Presidential Campaign is beyond me.

WE, YOU AND ME, THE GRASSROOTS CREATED THE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION, not these guys.

TO THE TRUE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION: I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART! ♥

Wisdom Strategies

?????

Can someone please explain to me why Benton is speaking for Dr. Paul when Dr. Paul his basically no longer in this race. WTF!

Why doesn't RP tell him to shut STFU?

Am I missing something?

Campaign managers are temporary...

...but grandson-in-laws are forever?

Unfortunately, Benton has insinuated himself into the Paul family. Even so, RP needs to rein him in and shut him up, for the sake of his movement and legacy.

SteveMT's picture

The Ron Paul "republican" campaign is over.

Jesse Benton is now a non-issue, and he can crawl back into his cave. If the Ron Paul libertarian campaign is going to start, Jesse Benton should have no input at all. Benton needs to just keep his mouth shut about what Ron Paul is or is not going to do.

Whatever Benton says is a lie, so this is good news.

I don't give a hoot what JB says.

Gary Johnson is NOT worthy of an endorsement of Ron Paul. That is nothing new.

Wake up folks! GJ is a statist riding on Ron's coattails. I think
it is truly horrible what he is doing.

Ron is not going to endorse him and he is not going to run 3rd party
and I would bet on both.

Ron Paul is My President

If you want to see how big of a statist Johnson is...

...just watch his speech at Ron Paul's Rally for the Republic. A bastion of statism. LOL!!!

interesting . . .

bump

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

If they threatened with another negative Ad Bomb...

whether it regards Rand or Ron, I would say - "Thanks for the air time because we don't have that kind of cash."

It would just make Romney look more petty than he already does.

All I can say is bring it dwalters because we have a plethora

of evidence that Ron Paul is not a racist in videos and statements which is the big gun they pulled before. We can refute any bs they try with and beat them on ANY argument they bring.

Exactly...

I wish that's what the Campaign would've told Romney the first time. This whole thing may have turned out a LOT different.

Everyone in the damn country would have been exposed to Ron very early on, and since barely anyone really likes Romney, I think it would've blew up in his face.

Paul would likely be the nominee right now, and all this infighting would be moot.

Omg the comments beneath this article!

How can people at this stage of the game STILL remain so damn clueless about RP and what the RNC/Romney campaign did to their grassroots. SMDH

okay now i am really confused.....

Is Paul going to go rogue and endorse him anyway, or is he actually going to announce a 3rd party run, or is he going to (GASP) endorse Mittens??? If Paul is no longer a candidate for POTUS, why the hell is Benton speaking for him anyway? I guess I will have to find out on Leno tonight... Something tells me Benton is just saying this to save face with the RNC so he can still have a change at sucking on the elitist teet. What about you guys?

Dont be confused because there is a very good possibility

that Dr.Paul may be on the ticket with Gary Johnson. Do not listen to the naysayers that question Evan Cutler and the conversation he had with Ron Paul a few days ago. Investigate this yourself. The only thing I can say is I trust that Evan is 100% a straight shooter and has the reputation to back it up going back to 2007 working tirelessly to get Ron Paul elected.

Translation: Benton and Olson continue to hold...

...Ron Paul and the Liberty Movement hostage to their pernicious "handling."

RP, please escape their bubble and join we "fringe" in one last epic battle for freedom. Knowing the stakes, how can you possibly sit on the sidelines, especially after watching your delegates get steamrolled by the criminal RNC/Romney campaign? Here's hoping you break their "control" before it's too late.

Judge Napolitano just said nice things about Johnson on Facebook

I've always trusted the Judge more than Benton.

Buzzkill Benton strikes again...

...every time he opens his mouth, the liberty movement blows out a tire and careens into a ditch.

And this shows you are the biggest TROLL on this site

Dragging that neocon craprag here. Who cares what Jesse Benton says?
Dr.Paul is his own man so why didn't they interview him? Because they knew what Benton would say.

Also you are completely out of the loop and do not have a clue on what is going on right now and if you want to see Gary Johnson in the Whitehouse you better put your drink down,clear your head, open your cloudy teared up eyes and support Dr.Paul on the ticket because that is the only way anything is going to happen for either one of them.

LMAO! Trolling the DP is

LMAO! Trolling the DP is activism? Front page posts does not an activist make. Maybe you should try waving a sign again. Your activism worked so well that time.

Blessings )o(

Umm...

You can't troll your own post... by definition.

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.

hmm

In almost 5 years you posted 145 posts here vs. 5232 I posted.

Talking about activism...nobody here has as many posts front paged as I do.

Do you have a website?
Twitter account supporting RP?
I DO.

My website gets traffic from over 50 countries each month.
On Twitter I posted over 12K posts & have more followers than famous activists like Trevor Lyman.

No, I don't have a twitter

No, I don't have a twitter page or a website because I actually get off my butt and do something rather than troll the DP.

Blessings )o(

At least Trevor's website has traffic and and interaction

Trevor Lymans website is coming along quite nicely with actual statistics and growth unlike yours that sees so little traffic that it couldn't even register as a footnote on an article failed websites.

Trevor is a friend of mine

He puts a lot of effort into his many websites - my site is "dormant" because my friend who helps me with it is in the stage 4 of cancer....

Anyways my site has all the work I do on Twitter posted live for all to see 24/7:
http://www.libertypoet.com/

Seems to me I am more effective reaching people using my Twitter account.
I don't pander to already converted I go out there and grab dems ows anti-Monsanto mmj marijuana folks and bring them to our big tent so that's why perhaps I am more effective than Trev.

And what criteria do you use

And what criteria do you use to gauge how effective you are? I've never heard your name mentioned by anyone in the movement that I know, nor have I ever seen any of your posts show up anywhere but here. Lyman though is well known and when his name is mentioned everyone knows who I'm talking about. And, I have well over 3000 liberty people linked on my Facebook page so surely someone out of all those liberty minded people must know who you are. How are you measuring your success? In the past you've claimed to have converted 1 million people to Ron Paul. Where did you get that figure? Your claim means that you, personally, were responsible for half the votes Dr. Paul received in the election. Complete Bull.

Blessings )o(

Nice... ; )

Facts, are not something stupid understands. I still appreciate your efforts PollMan.

**************************************************************

So how come with all your supposed activism

you did not listen to the conference call and are not all over this? Well it's because you are just a leaf blowing in the wind.

You are still to ignorant to see what we are trying to do and instead will continue to spam GJ post's when there isn't a chance in hell he will ever get to 15% without Dr.Paul on the ticket. Go back to spilling beer down your gullet fool.

see my signature line

Gary Johnson/Ron Paul 2012!

I am well aware there is a push for Gary Johnson/Ron Paul 2012!
I posted comments on all related posts in recent days.

Leafs blowing in the wind are folks like you who come here to attack other DP members who work hard providing vital information.
