Skip to comments.Tucker Carlson: GOP Should Ask Themselves Why Does This 70-ish Weird Guy Have All This Support
Posted on 12/22/2011 2:57:38 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
On Wednesday mornings Red Eye, host Greg Gutfeld asked The Daily Callers Tucker Carlson about Ron Pauls surge in Iowa. What happens if Paul wins Iowa? I wrote panic!
Maybe Republicans (should) ask themselves why does this 70-ish weird guy have all of this support? Carlson questioned. What is he saying thats resonating? And how do we address those concerns? Maybe people do care about the fed soft money maybe they are not happy with Afghanistan. I mean, think it through a little bit!
Later, during the shows regular Halftime Report segment, Andy Levy theorized that people liked Paul because they enjoyed the racist newsletters.
They are huge, Carlson added. Kids love the racist newsletters.
It is an under served market! Levy exclaimed.
Look at the guy! Carlson graciously observed. There has never been a more poorly marketed candidate.
Watch Levy and Carlsons take on Ron Pauls plucky presidential campaign below via Fox News:

Ron Paul is a media made phenomenon.
Ron Paul reminds me of Pat Paulsen ,maybe I’m not the only one LOL
He’s a mash-up of Pat Paulsen & Lyndon LaRouche.
Because there is quite a large number of the Republican Party members that are domestically libertarian and even if not outright isolationist are very disturbed with our continual international intervention. While other candidates talk about limiting the growth of government, or even cutting a department or two (heard it before and watched their budgets balloon even more), Ron Paul talks about cutting a trillion dollars out of the budget next year.
Just punks from any party that want legalized drugs.
You’d have to be on drugs to want Ron Paul in the first place.
GOPers wonder why anyone pays attention to the bow-tied Tucker Carlson!
It’s easy to be the pure conservative (Bachmann or Santorum) or say the easy and popular stuff (Paul) when you know darn well that you don’t have to worry about ever being held accountable for it.
Everybody else actually has to consider the possible consequences of their positions knowing that someday they might have to implement or fight for what they promised they would fight for.
It’s an age old political game. If you’re going to have to implement your promises, you can say what you want to get the applause of the masses.
people are frustrated with both parties that dont really want to do anything.
Ron Paul is a guy disgusted by government and his disgust sounds real.
Tucker is goofy but right on this one.
Get redy for the flames. Sensible talk like yours ain’t welcome round these parts ya hear?
Your pushing Pure BS!
Ronny is a 32 yr DC insider who is the PORK
KING of the GOP !
Ronny voted against The GOP earmark ban !
He is a FRAUD!
It time for the 9-11 truther meeting so buzz off !
Maybe there are people in the Republican party that actually care about the erosion of Individual Liberty in this country, an idea that never gets talked about in the election cycle.
Tucker stop being a dumbass....
Paul is leading in Iowa because it’s a caucus state rather than a primary state
He is buying most of his votes and support though his paulbots
If he wins..... There is no wind in his sails to carry him in any other state
Pork isnt killing America.
Ron Paul the 9-11 truther is killing our chances of getting rid of the Marxist!
Carlson has a point.
