Ron Paul Speech in Ames
The ‘kook’ congressman from Texas, Ron Paul, trailed Bachmann in Ames by just over one-hundred votes. But in mainstream media America, Paul’s strong finish is overlooked in favor of Mitt “corporations are people, too” Romney and Rick “come to Jesus” Perry. Ames is a far more serious deal than the mainstream media would admit. In fact, Tim Pawlenty ended his bid for 2012 after a dismal showing in Iowa.
The American mainstream media must stop pandering to the “politics as usual” machine and respect America’s new reality: Many are ready for real change in Washington with Paul. Kudos to Juan Williams for defending Paul at FOX when talking heads go against their own. Kudos to Dylan Ratigan and Joe Scarborough for doing the same at MSNBC. The American people are waking up and throwing out the opinions of anchors and columnists in favor of the facts. And the fact is this: Ron Paul isn’t crazy for being right. And he’s been right on a lot for more than thirty years.
