A commenter at Michelle Malkin’s blog posted this video and I thought it was very appropriate to post it here for all to see. Reality bites.
Unbelievable. At 75, he better pick a young VP candidate. Jesse Ventura, perhaps?
Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, whose outspoken libertarian views and folksy style made him a cult hero during two previous presidential campaigns, will announce on Tuesday that he’s going to try a third time.
Sources close to Paul, who is in his 12th term in the House, said he will unveil an exploratory presidential committee, a key step in gearing up for a White House race. He will also unveil the campaign’s leadership team in Iowa, where the first votes of the presidential election will be cast in caucuses next year.
Paul, 75, ran as the Libertarian Party candidate in 1988, finishing with less than one half a percent of the vote. After more than a decade as a Republican congressman, Paul gave it another shot in the 2008 presidential election, gaining attention for being the only Republican candidate calling for the end to the war in Iraq and for his “money bomb” fundraising strategy, which brought in millions of dollars from online donors in single-day pushes.
How will this affect the overall race, if he really goes for it? He’s got the cash, the help and connections to start this off. This will divide the vote, especially with the GOP if they dare put a RINO in-which is likely, looking at the environment right now. The establishment do not like to be called on their lack of efficiency, the lame candidates they could get behind, and the lackluster fighting spirit that they possess. Trump, Palin, West and Cain have put them to shame.
Look at it this way: Please “We The People,” or please the GOP establishment? Wise up, GOP! Listen to Republicans, Conservatives and those Tea Party folks that streak Independent-those Independents could give some votes to Paul, if he courts them properly.
Hmm…Paul/Ventura 2012. How’s that sound like?

Sarah Palin posted her speech that rocked the country, from Wisconsin to the rest of the country.
Her Facebook page has the transcript plus another video.
Please pass this speech; the “idiocy” continues with the PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome.) After all, “57 states” takes the cake.
The “Associated Depressed” already put their piece out; not much of a surprise but they did keep it short (as they wrote Palin’s speech was short.)
Breitbart snatched it but still the inspiration is out there on Twitter as I post this, almost an hour later. I wonder if it’s constrained because they dashed and wrote the article fast, or if they are getting to the point where both Palin and Trump are calling them out as biased.
