Surely now, finally, Paul and his take-no-prisoners campaign operatives will swoop in for the kill? What better way to end all this nefarious (baseless?) media innuendo of a Paul-Romney alliance – which further convinced so many Paulistas of the system’s attempt to silence their champion – then to take advantage of an opportunity to draw a national contrast between the same-old-same-old GOP and the Ron Paul Revolution?
Pollster Scott Rasmussen recently noted how disenchanted voters are with both Obama and Obamney, and cited the overwhelming continued unpopularity of the bailouts both supported as the primary reason why. Those are bailouts Paul vehemently and valiantly opposed, which should just provide further impetus for Paul to finally get off the sidelines and play to win.
I can’t wait to see the Paul Campaign deconstruct Romney’s violations of Constitutional orthodoxy the way they went after Santorum’s and Newt Gingrich’s. Won’t that be fun? Boy, with some real resources behind him and such a consistent record of standing for first principles, this ought to be an easy sale for the (self-branded) only Constitutionalist to close.
I anxiously anticipate the confrontation every bit as much as Romney does. In fact, I’ll bet he’s shaking in his boots as we speak.
You know, someone should tell the Ron Paul 2012 Campaign that it’s tough to make the case you’re the guy to challenge the establishment if you don’t actually challenge the establishment.
