Perhaps Ron Paul is finally facing reality. He has no chance whatsoever at the Republican nomination let alone the Presidency. It would appear that the good doctor has decided to pursue a more realistic goal: saving his congressional seat. Good plan, Ron!
Just as the liberal Ohio congressman [Dennis Kookspinach] realized last month that his long-shot presidential campaign was imperiling his prospects for keeping his House seat, Paul appears to be choosing the comfort of incumbency over a continued effort to win a nomination that he has virtually no shot at capturing.
In Ron Paul’s own words:
“I also have another priority. I have constituents in my home district that I must serve. I cannot and will not let them down. And I have another battle I must face here as well. If I were to lose the primary for my congressional seat, all our opponents would react with glee, and pretend it was a rejection of our ideas. I cannot and will not let that happen.”
And you Paultards can forget about a third party run (and a huge defeat). That’s just a pipe dream. In the pied piper’s own words:
“Of course, I am committed to fighting for our ideas within the Republican Party, so there will be no third-party run,” Paul said. “I do not denigrate third parties — just the opposite, and I have long worked to remove the ballot-access restrictions on them. But I am a Republican, and I will remain a Republican.”
Bye bye, Ron Paul. It’s been fun. Thanks for keeping the race interesting, but you never really had a chance. America does not want to cut and run. Republicans do not want to cut and run. Maybe you should have run for the Democrat party nomination. You’d have had a better chance in the kook party.
