Skip to comments.The Five: Why Would Ron Paul Fill His Ad With Only Liberal Supporters?
Posted on 01/02/2012 6:30:57 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Today on The Five, the gang discussed Sarah Palins talk of possible third party candidates and focused on Ron Paul. After Eric Bolling joked that Pauls fans may be too stoned to make it to the polls, the topic of conversation turned to a recent ad for Paul which featured a number of liberal commentators. The hosts questioned whether it would be effective or simply a turn off.
The ad, entitled Believe, will be airing in New Hampshire and Boston and features Ron Paul supporters talking up the candidates strengths and ideals. Amongst them are quotes and sound bites taken from different cable news shows featuring positive quotes from pundits. The issue, however, is that the pundits (Bill Press, Jonathan Alter, and Michael Eric Dyson) are predominantly left-leaning. I thought I was watching an ad for the New York Times! joked Greg Gutfeld.
Bolling, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Dana Perino questioned the strategy of putting liberals in an ad for a GOP presidential campaign. Bob Beckel, however, pointed out that, firstly, the pundits werent identified in the ad and, secondly, many of Pauls fans are younger and more socially liberal. But, when asked point blank whether or not the ad would help, Beckel said no. Its about as helpful as Herman Cains smoking ad.

Ron Paul is a wingnut and the sooner he ends his campaign the better.
“Pauls fans may be too stoned to make it to the polls”
Yup. You can bet your life that ad won’t be airing in South Carolina.
The biggest group of his most likely supporters are disillusioned obamaites.
Because Ron Paul will suck Obama’s voters away in a 3rd party run?
DING DING DING! The WINNAH!
Obama’s losing the youth vote. Ron Paul assures those votes don’t go to a Republican. Simple as that.
There’s a strange connection between Ron Paul and the leftist movement that can’t be described (unless only partially) in logical terms.
