Mish: Attack Dogs Unleashed on Ron Paul; No Need to Rethink Endorsement; Plus Side of Attack Dogs

Attack dogs have finally been unleashed on Ron Paul. Those barking dogs caused Andrew Sullivan to Re-Think The Paul Endorsement

Time Magazine even launched a headline Paul Walks Away

No Need to Rethink Endorsement

There is no need to rethink endorsements. Here is the deal: Ron Paul did not say the things attributed to him. He denies them, disavows them, and most importantly, his voting record proves it!

Can anyone honestly tell me why things Ron Paul did NOT say over twenty years ago should be news today?

Paul Missed Best Tactic

How many times does he have to deny he wrote those things? Still, Ron Paul did not handle the CNN setup in the best possible manner.

This is what Paul said to CNN.

Why don’t you go back and look at what I said yesterday on CNN and what I’ve said for 20 something years. 22 years ago? I didn’t write them, I disavow them.

That answer was perfectly fine, as far as it went. Then Paul walked out. It was a missed opportunity.

Proposed Follow-Up

Rather than walking out, Paul should have followed up with …

I’m not here to discuss imaginary topics or things I never said. Now, do you want to discuss my position on the economy, on the Fed, and on spending, or is your only point to this interview to discuss things I did not say 20 years ago and have explained to CNN countless times?

That would have smashed the ball down CNN interviewer Gloria Borger’s throat, right where it belonged.

OK. Admittedly, Ron Paul did not respond in the perfect manner. So Ron Paul is human. Who isn’t?

Is a transgression 22 years ago of something Ron Paul never said, and whose track record in congress proves it, any reason to drop support of Ron Paul?

In favor of who? Flip-flopper Newt Gingrich? Mitt Romney, the man that practically wrote the Obama Health-Care legislation? The Mitt Romney who wants to starts a trade war with China? Another Republican candidate that has no chance of winning?

If case you are a misguided Mitt Romney fan please consider President Obama and Mitt Romney are Nearly One and the Same!

Anyone “rethinking” their Ron Paul endorsement based on things Paul never said is not thinking clearly.

Attack Dog Plus Side

Here’s the plus side to the attack dogs: Ron Paul is now considered a serious candidate or the attack dogs would not have been unleashed on things he never said 22 years ago.

Interestingly, The State Column reports Ron Paul still holds a lead in Iowa.

Thus, a majority of voters have decided that 22-year-old never-made statements are irrelevant, even if some misguided souls can’t.

    RP’s entire interview lmao, always look for the “real” truth.

    Hi All,
    I believe that Ron Paul will need a massive vote surplus to actually win the Iowa caucus as the establishment have the capacity and the track record of switching out around 20% of votes to make sure their candidate wins. I think that they are so scared because he has a massive majority that means they will not be able to doctor the result without getting caught.

    A clever play with camera work, a cut , a snip, and a soundbite. Maybe he said almost exactly what you said, and didn’t walk out early.

    Thanks, Jean – you’re loading up some great posts tonight (I love movie night!)

    I read an interesting comment somewhere that put a different light on things…someone stated that all this candidate crap flying around actually had little to do with the election, but was instead “splash journalism” intended to drive up ratings and thereby increase end-of-year bonuses by the corporate media? It’s an interesting thought – I have no idea whether the end of the year is a sweeps week, but I suppose whichever network is able to draw in the most viewers with Shock Headlines will probably retain those viewers for a while? I dunno – I don’t even have television and I’m burned out by all the clips posted online – Thank You for posting Variety Viewing links =)
