It's amazing that they really are taking down Gingrich with such ease with all the negative ads.
A Paul-Romney 1-2 in Iowa following by a Romney-Paul 1-2 in NH could sink Gingrich. It also puts Romney in a fantastic position, as Paul will have a very toug ...[text shortened]... . I'd even have a little sympathy for his positions if he weren't so dogmatic and inflexible.
Well, at least you now admit he has to be taken seriously. That is progress.
It is funny how most pundits are still in denial. Now they are admitting that Paul could win Iowa but now they say silly stuff like Eleanor Clift said on the last McLaughlin Group: "If Ron Paul wins Iowa people will say that is fine but he can't win the nomination". They now talk as if Iowa is some oddball state and Paul can't run the same campaign ads in other states with the same effect. Then she predicted Paul would win Iowa...lol
Okay, now you seem to leave open the possibility he could win the nomination but cannot win the general election. I expect Eleanor will join you in another month and say the same thing, but I'll bet she will doubt herself soon afterwards. I can't help but notice that the same lefties that say Paul can't win against Obama are posting all sorts of anti Ron Paul articles on facebook. If they are really so confident Ron Paul can't beat Obama why do they feel a need to post negative articles about him? You would think they would be happy with him winning the republican nomination if they honestly believed that, so why post articles to influence people to not vote for him in the primary?
I don't think the lefties consider Paul an easy pushover for Obama at all. I think they just need to say it to make themselves feel better for a moment. I don't think you are really convinced of that either. That whole "change you can believe in" slogan would hurt Obama more than you know if Ron Paul has the money to go negative on him. There is more too.
Obama is so vulnerable it is funny. All Ron Paul has to do is repeat the word "debt" over and over and Obama is toast.
