Ron Paul Watch: The Disciples or Internet Spammers?

Posted 106 CommentsPosted in President 2008, Ron Paul

The Disciples of Ron Paul, Spreading the Word in N.H.

There’s no mistaking which house on Lake Shore Drive, about 45 minutes northeast of Manchester, is the one full of Paulites — the intensely loyal, almost fanatical supporters of Rep. Ron Paul. Signs are everywhere. On the back window of a brand new black Toyota, on the bumper of a green Geo, on a white Volvo station wagon that sits beside a beat-up lime green Honda. “Ron Paul 2008.”

“We can run the whole New Hampshire campaign right here,” says Jim Forsythe, 39, a former Air Force pilot who’s on his driveway in jeans, T-shirt and white socks. “We’re the hard-core supporters.”

These folks have been spamming my blog for months now.

Either they have lots of time on their hands or somebody is paying this group to harass the GOP. My guess it is a left wing group who is funding these internet spammers to create dissension among the GOP. As it has been rumored the GOP actually helps fund Ralph Nader and Green Party efforts to disrupt the Democrats.

The notiariety these folks have obtained highlights the failure of the national party primary system. The small states of Iowa and New Hampshire have for decades had a disproportionate say in who the Presidential nominees will be. Look for a national primary system to be developed by the parties in time for the 2012 election.

Now, as for Ron Paul.

Please……. a fringe candidate whose fundraising effort should draw Federal Election Commission scrutiny.

And, when will the GOP stop including him in the debates? Or does the top tier wish to use him as a foil for the left?

Spam away Paulites………

Rudy Giuliani Watch: Why Rudy Did Not Go To Ames #1

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Ron Paul, Rudy Giuliani

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYxSvATmXPk[/youtube]

This Ron Paul demonstration aptly demonstrates the “DOG AND PONY SHOW” at Ames today.

Why waste campaign resources on (as of 2 PM CDT) 11,000 Iowa GOP voters?

Wow.

There are more GOP voters in my suburban California community by only a factor of 3-4.

South Carolina GOP Debate Watch: The Second Debate

Posted Posted in Duncan Hunter, Jim Gilmore, John McCain, Mitt Romney, President 2008, Ron Paul, Rudy Giuliani, Tom Tancredo

giulianimay15aaweb

Former Mayor of New York city Rudy Giuliani waves as he arrives at the Koger Center to perform checks where the Republican Debate will be held in Columbia, South Carolina May 15, 2007.

Flap will write comments about the canddiates as the debate happens live.

The candidates take the stage.

The War in Iraq is the first topic and first question to McCain. McCain looks wooden and uneasy.

Next, Tommy Thompson. Malaki Iraq government must stand up.

Mitt Romney – any circumstance to pull out from Iraq? Answer rambles about Islamic radicals and talking points.

Brownback – his stand favoring Iraq Study Group and reaching consensus.

Format is much easier to follow………

Rudy – Congressional GOP must find success by September. Timetable for defeat? Corrects quote and says he was referring to Democrats. Agrees with McCain and calls him correct. Fort Dix example. Facing an enemy who wants to kill us and the worst thing to do is to show them weakness.

Tom Tancredo – supports troops as his role as Congressman

Ron Paul – in the wrong party?

Duncan Hunter – Chairman of Armed Services Committee, served in Vietanm, calls on other canddiates to lay out their credentials to be commander in chief.

Huckabee – need to listen to Generals

Gilmore – switch to question about Iran

Would you launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran to prevent them to achieve a nuclear weapon? Dialoge with American people when in fact we need to strike.

Second round of questions – domestic issues and economy

Mitt Romney – Flip Flop Mitt – Now take no tax pledge whereas before he would not. Says Washington is broken.

McCain – President Bush tax cuts. Opposed tax cuts. Spending is out of control. Did not lose 2006 on Iraq but on spending. Drunken sailor analogy.

Huckabee – alternative minimum tax. Eliminate tax? We have spent more money than John Edwards at a beauty shop. Much applause and laughter.

Rudy – killing line item veto. NYC spending rose. Spending actually decreased. Lowered taxes 23 times. PLedge to not fill 50% of retiring government employees. Also supports Regan-like across the board budget cuts – 5-25%. Quoted Club for Growth.

Chris Wallace opened up Rudy McRomney and questions Gilmore on why he thinks that some of the other candidates are not conservatives.

A round of questions on abortion and stem cell research

Fourth Round of questions on illegal immigration

GOP Presidential Debate Watch: Let’s Get Ready to Rumble

LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE

Chuck Todd and Mark Murray over at MSNBC have a good set of links for a pre-debate read:

The AP previews tonight’s debate: “Giuliani, McCain and Romney all kept their public campaign schedules relatively light over the past few days, opting to spend as much time as possible huddling with aides to rehearse their responses to expected questions on top issues such as Iraq, immigration, taxes, abortion, gay marriage and terrorism.” More: “The Reagan library [is] a fitting setting. Most, if not all, of the Republican candidates have embraced Reagan’s legacy and called for their party to return to the small-government, low-tax, strong-military ideals he espoused.”

But the New York Times wonders if the contenders will want to embrace another Republican: George W. Bush. “Do they embrace him as a means of appealing to the conservative voters who tend to decide Republican primaries? Or do they break from him in an effort to show that they will lead the nation in a new direction? Do they applaud his policies or question his competence – or both?”

The New York Times also focuses on Giuliani, who hasn’t debated since 1997, when he faced off against mayoral challenger Ruth Messinger. It asks which Rudy will show up: “The hard-hitting prosecutor? Or Mr. Nice Guy? Mr. Giuliani has played both in his short debate history.”

Flap has his own links:
