It's not often that a political party gangs up to destroy one of its own. But the attempt is in full swing against Ron Paul. Now and again Glenn Beck gets in on the act. He acts like he hates Ron Paul, when he actually seems to agree with him in most of his show monologues. What's propelling Glenn into apoplexy? Any ideas? I've got one...
The establishment is getting vewy vewy newvous. Ron Paul is changing the Republican presidential dynamic; several other candidates are becoming stealth me-too candidates. Maybe the establishment got this ball rolling a bit too early. Ron is getting up a head of steam, and he may shoot into the limelight come February. He raised a crapload of money during the past quarter, and now his goal is to raise $12 million by the end of the year-$4 million per month. And he's already got $500k in the first few days of October.
Mike Huckabee is raising FAR LESS than Ron Paul, yet somehow he is registering higher in the polls than Ron Paul. How can this be? A caller called into the Glenn Beck program today with a very likely reason--it may very well be that pollsters are calling likely-to-vote Republicans, and many Ron Paul voters are not on those calling lists.
The caller himself had not been a likely-to-vote Republican--until recently. But he changed to the Republican party so that he could vote for Ron Paul. There are very likely THOUSANDS of people who are like this caller, judging by the sheer number of donations Ron Paul has received so far.
After this excellent analysis of the polling numbers, Glenn Beck blew a gasket. He did his best (and it was a masterful) impersonation of Bill O'Reilly. The caller might as well have shut-up, but he did a courageous job of trying to get a word in edgewise. Mr. Beck guffawed and accused the man of setting him up and talked and talked and finally dropped the call down the memory hole so that a very valid point about Ron Paul could not be made on his show.
What's up, Glenn? Do you hate Ron Paul, really? Or are you afraid of someone who expects you to be. C'mon, Mr. Beck. Stop being a pansy.
