Consultant works for Ron Paul and Rick Santorum in the same Primary, Unethical?

Do you think it is unethical for Kerry Wood of Dark Horse Strategies, to work for Ron Paul and Rick Santorum in the same Presidential Primary? Do you also think that is why they both lost in South Carolina?

If a consent agreement was signed, then no, it

was not unethical. Otherwise, just chalk it up to another dirty ploy by the GOP to keep RP and his ilk in line.

Is this common practice with consultants?

I really dont know.

I'd concur,

I suppose only those who ran campaigns or consulted before can attest 1st hand whether it is a 'common practice,' or not.

but, political mercenaries milking multiple politicians, at the same time? does the sun come up every morning? lol.

setting aside Dr. Paul's past campaigns, I'd imagine, it's 'normal' for scums to want to suck dry another scum. IMHO .D

from my recollection, I believe the TV ad director for Doc's awesome ads, has a wife who worked on Romney's campaign, and supposedly 'no pillow talk' were 'ever' shared on each team's strategies. if you can believe that. well... then you do have the two supposed political enemies, literally politically marrying, like 'barons/baroness' of yore, as was the case of Mary Matalin marrying James 'Ragin' Cajun' Carville, in an ultimate display of living matrimony of political mercenary hack-dom. so who is to say, that ain't the 'norm' in 'their' world?

yeah, it's like these people are aliens or something... LOL

but then again, there is no such thing as 'opposition' or TWO politically opposing parties, in reality, as we all know; all an illusion anyway, "just how bigger is the check?" is the only real deciding/determinate factor for 'their' ilk, so it seems.

though, to be 'fair': political operatives, like Hollywood personnel, are actually quite a small circle, proportionally speaking, profession-wise. Hey, as Gerald Celente so often says: "Politics is showbiz for Ugly People." They're all actors and those who get paid to support or manage actors; what's the diff, eh?

So regardless, it would be expected to see an overlap of clientele; people only make the mistake, when they forget that politics is NOT 100% business to these a-holes, and naively wish that this is about ideological or principled philosophical purity, though most certainly, in a fair universe, it most certainly should be. No?

I've taken Dr. Paul's lessons to heart, after two POTUS cycles: politics maybe a great educational platform to spread great ideas, often rarely heard of, but as a vehicle for change, it may delay some statism or slow it down, but what TRULY counts, is what's between the ears. Fundamental philosophical change is personal, along with what each individual's understanding of what the role of govt ought to be, or if at all to some.oD
