Skip to comments.Forget Sarah Palin: It's Rand Paul's moment and Ron Paul's opportunity

Behind the scenes the insider Republican establishment is now in an uproar as the odds are high that Rand Paul wins the Republican nomination for senator from Kentucky. This would be a major embarrassment to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and raises a big question about 2012: Why is Sarah Palin getting so much attention, and Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) so little, from the national media and pundit classes?
Certain pundits appear strangely infatuated with Palin, but it seems to me that if Ron Paul runs for president in 2012, he could win a plurality of delegates in a multi-candidate field. My guess is that Ron Paul does run for president and Sarah Palin does not, but who knows? Why is it that major media are so unwilling to take a close and serious look at Ron Paul as a potential candidate for president, while they pant with excitement at every breath Palin takes?
If Rand Paul wins, it sends cold chills up the spines of Washington Republicans, and it may well force the media to take a close look at what happens if Ron Paul runs for president.
Do the math, folks. If there are three, four, five or more Republicans running for the nomination in 2012, Ron Paul suddenly has a shot at doing very well in the delegate count, possibly winning a plurality of delegates, depending on how many Republicans run and who they are.
If Republican power brokers try to lock him out, what happens if Paul runs as an Independent?
And why don't Republican or Democratic pundits give Ron Paul his due? After Election Day, they just might have no choice, right?
Who is ACTUALLY going to do all they can to slash the Federal Government budgets and power? That is all I want to know.
Why it gets to the point the government can literally snatch people off the street, we are truly in deep.
That should say “when” it gets to the point.
Libertarians are only one small step up from full on Liberals. Not a big enough step to get my vote.
As you can easily infer from articles like this, liberals would dearly love for Ron “Obama is not a socialist” Paul to run as an independent.
Put down the crack pipe Brent!
“Ron Paul as a potential candidate for president, while they pant with excitement at every breath Palin takes...”
Does Ron feel the same way as his Daddy about the US defending itself? I believe we know where “Palin” stands.
I want some of what the author is smoking.
One does not necessarily lead to the other.
“...Why is it that major media are so unwilling to take a close and serious look at Ron Paul as a potential candidate for president...”
Because he is a kooky Libertarian. He is much better than a Dem or a RINO but too weak on standing up to Mohammedans.
Plus people get Ron Paul and Ru Paul confused.
A pair of losers!
Did you see this thread and comment in particular?
Hope you don’t have high BP.
If it is truly his son’s moment ... as a father he needs to step back and let him have that moment himself!
He doesn’t need his father riding along, kibitzing or any thing else.
“Why is Sarah Palin getting so much attention, and Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) so little, from the national media and pundit classes?”
The minute Ron Paul looks like a real contender, the MSM will roar to life with its typical hate and smear campaign.
Wtf. Why would a libertarian run with a statist like Romney?!
And of course Huckabee for Secretary of State
