No offense but Paul winning that debate says more about the field then it does about Paul. The debate was pathetic. I do think the exchange between Paul and Santorium on Iran was the most interesting part of the debate.
But you're right. It says a lot about the rest of the field. It's like a clown show. Absolutely pathetic that not one decent candidate can come out of this to defeat this POS we have in office now.
Is the GOP afraid of Obama? If this is the best that they can muster, imo, it certainly gives that appearance
Paul always wins those unscientific polls on Fox. His supporters, while limited in number, are very enthusiastic.
I am surprised because Obama is very beatable, but I just don't see these candidates doing it.
Maybe the serious contenders don't like to go against an incumbent.
To paraphrase every political talking head on TV:
These early debates are usually about who loses.
The candidates who stop getting donations and have staff members leave or just drop out of the race.
Barack Obama has two (2) major problems.
1. In the past month he has been exposed to the world as someone who doesn't possess even the basic skills to be the President of anything. Reading someone else' speech from a teleprompter goes only so far.
2. The Right Track/Wrong Track poll indicates that 73% of Americans think we're on the WRONG Track. That's a HUGE problem for any incumbent and if you ask me I think Obama, as well as many democrats, has already thrown-in-the-towel.
Here. Have a straw.
The reason why it seems like we cannot find good candidates is because the media picks who should win by setting the narrative and then the followers follow suit. Many of the other voters begrudgingly subscribe to the theory that "their" party's candidate is the lesser of the 'two evils'.....
The candidates that offer true change are never given an honest opportunity by the media (through how they are covered) because their agenda is often in direct contrast to what is best for the wealthiest 1%. That is why the average American feels underwhelmed by most of the politicians in the country; their best interests are not being represented.
Expect the 'Pubs to run-out-the-clock on the now option-less President Barack Obama.
The GOP has no one who can beat him, that I am shocked by.
