This video comes to us courtesy of a 2012 Ron Paul presidential supporter. It mixes a bunch of information together with Mitt Romney’s flip-flops on several issues: abortion, the stimulus, gun control, and consistency. Click to go back to the beginning.
If you have been wondering, as I have, why the two front-runners in the Republican primary are attacking everyone else except each other then look no further. The recent remarks by Charles Krauthammer explain everything.
When I saw the headline of a recent video with Charles Krauthammer proclaiming that Ron Paul has brought libertarianism out of the wilderness, I thought it might give some insight. Since I know that Krauthammer is a strong Romney supporter, I thought this might be a further confirmation of the Mitt Romney and Ron Paul collusion. Instead, I found that Krauthammer explained what Ron Paul is trying to accomplish:
He has a stable, energetic constituency. He’s not out for the presidency. He’s 76, he himself said he doesn’t see himself in the Oval Office. He is the leader of a movement. Or as he said last night, the cause. He is now the champion of a cause on the up-swing. He is going to stay in the race. He is not going to drop out. He’s going to end up in Tampa, with perhaps the second most delegates. He will be like Jesse Jackson was in the ’80s among the Democrats, and Buchanan was in ’92, leader of the eternal opposition. The man who brought libertarianism out of the wilderness — all those pathetic third-party runs — into a position at Tampa where he can negotiate for changes in policy and speaking role perhaps even on prime time. That is a historic achievement.
It really doesn’t get anymore difficult than that. If you want smaller government, Newt is the only person in my lifetime who has been able to deliver it. Rush Limbaugh is right once again.
There are a few legitimate conservative candidates in the 2012 republican presidential race: Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, and Newt Gingrich. You could throw Ron Paul in there too, and several others like Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain, who are now out of the race. However, the only candidate to successfully shrink government is Newt, and that’s what really matters.
Since Iowa, Mitt Romney has become the clear front-runner in the republican race. Not surprisingly, Mitt is receiving a new level of attacks, much as Newt did in Iowa. The one person who is not attacking Mitt Romney is Ron Paul. Why?
Just a week ago, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul teamed up to run millions of dollars in ads to take out the then front-runner, Newt Gingrich. However, now Ron Paul is defending Romney from his attackers. The strategy certainly makes sense for Mitt, and perhaps Ron Paul knows he would never have a chance at winning the presidency. Is there something in it for Ron Paul if Mitt Romney wins?
Come to think of it, I don’t recall any attacks from Ron Paul on Romneycare, and I definitely thought the recent New Hampshire debate exchange below to be odd at the time. In the video, Mitt defers to Ron Paul as the expert on the Constitution. Maybe the idea isn’t so crazy after all.
If you’ve been concerned that the Republican party’s chances are too good this election cycle and you believe that high unemployment might inadvertantly drop a GOP candidate into the White House in 2012, then you’ve come to the right place. The Ron Paul Resolution is dedicated to putting up the most unelectable Republican, so that we can still manage to lose this election.
To that end, we are backing Ron Paul and every crackpot conspiracy theory that he can come up with–from 9-11, to the Trilateral Commission, to Skull and Bones, to the New World Order. Ron Paul has never failed to devise a wacky theory about anything. We are proud to support Ron Paul for president in 2012, and we know that somewhere in the universe Martians are watching our every move. The truth is out there.
