It is funny how Ron Paul comes within 200 votes of winning Iowa and is not even mentioned in the news. Then the press awards second place to a guy who wasn't even there. Huh

Even funnier and not reported well either (sadly) ... Bachmann literally gave away 6000 tickets for free and Paul sold 4700 tickets with a $10 discount, yet she won by less than 9/10 of 1% of the vote lol.

I also heard that Ron Paul spent 1/10 of the money she did. He should be declared a landslide winner.
I think he is getting the same treatment Howard Dean got from the Democrats.

The only way you Ron Paul supporters will get people to take you *seriously* is if you win the Caucus. If you guys can't even pull off a caucus victory in Iowa please just stop there. I really don't want to hear 9 months of nauseating Ron Paul rhetoric if his supporters can't even win him the Iowa Caucus.

Mike Huckabee won the Republican Iowa caucus in 2008. Enough Said...

So this proves.....?  McCain won the nomination in 2008, remember?  So winning the Iowa Caucus didn't seem to help Huckabee.  I guess I don't understand your point.

If Ron Paul can't win a caucus, he sure as hell can't win a general.

But I'm saying your standard of success (Iowa Caucus) is a false one, as winning the Caucus doesn't prove you can win the nomination, nor does losing it mean you will lose the nomination.  Your example shows exactly this.

Entirely irrelevant.  There is a reason there is still a general election in the fall.  Iowa doesn't pick the winner for the entire nation.  Politicians that appeal to Iowans probably don't appeal the the voters of California.  Winning or losing one primary does not decide the fate of a candidate.  Get a stack of 4-5 victories going and then you have some momentum.

Whether you like it or not Ron Paul is the dark horse candidate. He barley has a chance now, and loosing a caucus (which primarily has to do with organization and strategy) only sets him deeper into the dark horse corner. His supporters demand media attention like they deserve it! Well, now it's time to show the country that you guys are there to win it for your man. Bachmann and Romney should not be hard to beat, I mean seriously look at them... One said "I think if we give Glenn Beck the numbers, he can solve this [the national debt]", and the other was for universal healthcare before he was against it (HCR being unpopular among Republicans).

What a joke! You're watching the media stick knives in RP's back, then you turn and tell his supporters they are asking too much when they ask for fair coverage.

Give me a break.

The PRESS-titutes have spoken. They need Ron Paul to lose.

Paul needs to get mad, he is still so soft spoken when he does get any media attention. Saw Fox basically try to trap him into some anti-war peacenik jacket today, sad that they are so obvious about it anymore.

I don't think he has a chance and this Perry crap is just theater with Bachmann being the bone tossed to the Tea Party to make them think they get to actually pick who wins. Romney was chosen by the party in 2008 to be the nominee in 2012 and that ain't gonna change folks, not unless you get mad, stand up and say something and that doesn't mean posting on a few message boards.

Stephen Colbert had a great segment about the media shitness over Ron Paul.

He actually used the AP media posted material where they mentioned Ron Paul except it was named Mr. XXX and published as such, wtf ??

Last time I checked media attention is not something you "deserve" or have to "earn"; the purpose of the media is to fairly cover topics and issues, to inform people on the reality that is going on around them.  If the media stray from this, we the people have a right to cry foul and demand equal coverage.  The fact that people assume the media has the right to choose the candidates is appalling.

Ok, listen carefully all of you who say he has no chance to win, I'm going to explain something to you.  If you don't vote for a candidate, then they are unelectable.  If you vote for a candidate, then they are electable.  The spurious reasoning of "unelectability" is horse shit cooked up by people who want to control elections for their special interests.  Do not buy into it.

Ron Paul supporters all over the nation are already doing this.  Watch us rip apart the single party system charade that is American politics.  The dark horse has now become the white stallion, and he's thirsty for corrupt elephant and donkey blood.

 Cheesy

I got a little carried away with the analogy.  I get cranky when I'm tired and hungry and people say stupid things on the internet.  "Honey, I can't come to bed yet....someone is wrong on the internet!"    Smiley

10 BTC is $100.  To a broke student like me that's significant moola.  I'd rather give the $100 to the Ron Paul campaign to help him achieve victory.  Smiley  However, I would consider a small, symbolic bet, 1 BTC or so.

Winning or not, do you really feel anyone else running atm is more worthy to win than Ron Paul ? They are all a bunch of crackheads compared to Ron Paul.

Yeah, but by election day 2012, it'll probably be like 50 cents.
