Let's get behind Ron Paul.
He sounds good BUT few have ever heard of him.

Ron Paul Aligns With Rosie O’Donnell: US Government Will Phony Up New Gulf of Tonkin Incident To Contrive A War With Iran
It is WAY too early for the media to be having him as the shoe-in GOP candidate. We WILL get someone who is acceptable. No one can be another Ronnie....but they can at least aspire to be and hold like values.
There’s video of Ron Paul in Post 5, posted by Ace of Spades. It’s not good.
There’s more on the item from HotAir
Rudy has no chance of getting the nomination.
I sure hope you’re right!
Rudy’s nomination would spell the end for Rudy if’n he’s a Roman Catholic. The pope and the powers that be are glacialy moving in the direction of enforcing a non-communion ban on apostate politicians who are pro-abortion.
Pre-9/11, I’d go for Ron Paul.
Not post 9/11. Noninterventionism isn’t viable anymore.
I’ve got my conservative in Duncan Hunter.
Good lord. After all these year's, Pat Buchanan's finally written something sane, rational and true.
God bless the Law of Averages.
It’s a rare occasion when I find myself agreeing with Pat Buchanan. This is one of them.
If it becomes Rudys party then it is time for a new REAL conservative party.
After reading Fred Thompson’s legal intrepretation as well as Rudy Giuliani’s legal intrepretation, how are those intrepretations of abortion different? Giuliani has already defined the type of SC Justice he would nominate. And he hasn’t changed his own personal beliefs unlike some candidates. As far as I’m concerned William Kristol and his cabal of media pundits can go to hell along with McCain.

Rudy’s NARAL rating————100%
Fred thompson’s NARAL rating———0%
Lets look at whats going on while Freds mulling his decision.
Rudys had a miserable last two weeks/month. Hes had the revelation of the six Planned Parenthood donations which effectively nixed his attempt to be seen as at least neutral on the abortion question. Its gone so badly that apparently hes decided to go ALL IN WITH A 2-7 OFFSUIT and proclaim proudly his support for the pro-choice position effectively ruining him with the base. His candidacy is imploding.
Mitt Romney, despite his 1st Quarter fundraising, is still mired in forth or fifth place (7% and 5th in the latest Marist poll) and had the revelation of his own/wifes donation from their JOINT CHECKING ACCOUNT to the primary supporter of infanticidea fact that will only increase suspicion of him as a johnny-come-lately conservative and a political chamelon only too ready to say anything to anybody to get their vote.
McCain? Well he doesnt appear to be going anywhere, up or down but hes done little to increase his appeal outside of his hard core support.
Seems to me that Freds playing this about right. Letting Romney and Giulianis campaigns self-destruct while he remains above the fray and continues to introduce himself with position papers, speeches and essays that strengthen his bona fides with the partys base.
True, he cant wait forever but I believe hes playing this one out just about right.
Rudy is simply nationalizing Arnie's California campaign. Why is this so difficult for people to grasp? Or does Pat see it, but is still under deadline pressure to write something?
I mean, how difficult is it to realize what's happening? Why aren't we seeing columns inches devoted to this occurrence? Where is Spiff's chart outlining Rudy & the GOP? He should do one between Rudy & Arnie.
If you want to see what's in store for the GOP, look no further than California. With Florida now in the mix as well, Rudy is going to run straight up the middle and lock up the nomination in the big blue states over a span of a few weeks in early 2008.
