Ron Paul Considering 2012 Presidential Run in Another Third Party Campaign
Chattah Box ^

Posted on 07/09/2010 5:49:12 AM PDT by mnehring

U.S. (ChattahBox) – Be prepared for more annoying copy/paste ‘Vote Ron Paul’ comments on every forum, message board, media site, and news source. Ron Paul has announced that he is official considering a 2012 run for president, CNN reports.

The Texas Republican Rep. has run in the past, and he hasn’t gotten far. Though having a small group of extremely loyal supporters, most of which are Independent or Libertarian voters, he is unable to garner enough support for a GOP nomination.

As for running on a third party docket, that has never gone well for any politician. It is doubtful his chances for a 2012 run will be much better.

Don’t worry, the Trilateral Commission will take him out before he can siphon any votes away and let Obama slip in again.

Is there anyone who doesn't yet understand the source and reason for Rabs bashing of Sarah Palin?

Here it is, in plain site for all to see.

Third party suckers who will guarantee Obamanation for as long as there are democrats.

You are just a big meanie, don’t you know that Ron Paul just wants to save your soul? Those Repubics and Demorats are agents of Satan herself and God looks at how you vote to put you in the book of life. Only one person has ever delivered as many babies as Ron Paul, and that is Thomas Jefferson himself. No one has ever multi-tasked like Ron Paul. Heck, he is a congressman while having his own show on Bravo (Drag Race).

Ron Paul will save us, he will make sure spam and wild shrimp are in every refrigerator. He will end all wars and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. He would like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company.

Anyone who speaks ill of Dr. Ron Paul is just an agent of Satan, or Pepsi.

“The Texas Republican Rep. has run in the past, and he hasn’t gotten far.”

There IS a reason.

The article quotes nothing from Paul about considering any Third Party run in 2012. Paul himself has said that if he did run in 2012, he would of course run again as a Republican; but that he has no plans to run at this time.

IOW, it's just a bogus headline. Blog Pimp!!! (I'm shocked, shocked I tell you).

Yawn.

And probably, so will Nader.

Yawn.

About time for Buchannan to make another run, too.

Actually, the headline is just blatantly false.

Ahem: Notice that neither Paul, nor the quoted CNN article, actually said ANYTHING about any Third Party run in 2012.
Someone's Blog-Pimping here, nothing more. {{{snooze}}}

Did you even read your own quoted CNN article?

It says nothing about any Third Party run in 2012.

The headline is just an attention-grabber. Mention "Ron Paul", get page hits.

Maybe. Whatever the case, they have lousy grammar. "Is official considering"?

Good grief, man, it looks like you're posting an article written by third graders. Who're flunking English, at that.

Well, if he does, then we can probably rest assured that Obama will be a two term President rather than the one termer he seems to be destined to be.

Third party movements are for idiots. It has been attempted about 75 times and been successful once, but you can count on the third partiers to point to that single success 150 years ago and ignore the 74 subsequent failures.

Whats that they say about the definition of insanity? /rolleyes

His own history suggests he's not going to have any loyalty to the party he supposedly represents.

He's run as an independent before, and in 2008, he threw his endorsement behind another nut case, Chuck Baldwin.

I know of several loonies on FR who voted for Baldwin as a result, did you vote for him as well?

Dude, relax, we know that you don’t want him to run, especially as a third party.. you are on friendly ground here. You are a noob so you should understand, exposing and mocking the cult of Paul is somewhat of a sport here. His little cult has these delusions of grander about him being some sort of perfect Conservative the way Fred Phelp’s followers think he is some sort of perfect Christian.

Most of us have dealt with him for decades before this past election cycle and know his real game. Don’t take these articles too seriously lest you get so obsessive, you accidentally become one of his.

Good grief man, you argue just like a liberal, focusing on "grammar" (clearly a typo, but don't allow that to get in the way of a good Paulbearer distortion) rather than substance.

I've noticed that libertarians frequently argue in the same manner as do liberals, short on substance, long on diversion and nitpicking, short on actual facts.
