Ron Paul Isn’t Serious About Winning the GOP Nomination [VIDEO]
Republican Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) told a group of people that he would consider appointing Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) to his cabinet during a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor according to a report from The Hill.
Ron Paul is a current fringe candidate who has as much of a chance of getting the Republican Presidential nomination as Jersey Shore‘s Snooki does of getting an award for excellent skin care. Paul can get away with joking about appointing Kucinich because Paul knows the presidency is not winnable for him and his tiny brigade of vociferous basement dwelling internet crusaders.
Paul said, “Being pragmatic is about forming coalitions and I probably work with coalitions better than the other candidates. I don’t think I’ve said anything negative here about the president.”
Claims of being pragmatic while he can’t form coalitions within his own political party. I forgot, is he still fluent newspeak?
He joked that he would create a Department of Peace, but I won’t touch the hypocrisy of the doctor on creating more government for something that doesn’t exist without security.
Dennis Kucinich once saw a UFO. Yes, he is serious. Not the unidentified kind, but the little green men kind.
Yes, he takes the question is stride, but we should be honest here. Ron Paul is kookier than Kucinich. Any candidate who opposes a border fence because he thinks its meant to keep us in.
The consistently low polling by Paul in most national polls of likely GOP primary voters would be excellent if we went by scoring rules in golf, but we aren’t. Ron Paul is currently pulling 6% behind other also-rans Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, and Herman Cain.
Yes, Doc Liberty won the California GOP straw poll with 44% of those attending, but when did that state matter for Republicans? The socialist paradise is lost due to a generation of Republicans being relegated to stepchild status to the liberal Democrat Party and no relief in sight for those who choose to stay and live there.
Ron Paul isn’t electable and after his departure his followers will mostly go back to trolling John Birch websites, hipster coffee shops, and probably supporting another fringe candidate for president in 2016.
