|Ron Paul delights his supporters in New Hampshire|
Now coming second is not winning, I know, but Ron Paul is doing far better than the establishment would like. They have to report him now. They have to sit up and think. But you can bet your bottom dollar they won't squeak about where their trillions actually went. Or why they wanted trillions of fake money in the first place.
Mark Mardell on his BBC blog says - "Iowa's second favourite son, Rick Santorum, did badly here.
Instead in second place, Ron Paul. The Texas Congressman may be the most interesting phenomenon of this campaign, and his gleeful, impish speech extolling liberty and castigating government was a thing of freewheeling beauty in a world where so much is pre-planned, plotted and rehearsed.
Path to victory? I am not going to write him off. Perhaps the Republican right will come together behind him in future contests. But I suspect he is too strong meat, too consistently libertarian for many conservatives. He won't go quietly, however."
No he won't go quietly. But actually I think strong meat is just what many Americans want just now. They've had it with chopped liver and sub standard ground beef. Ron Paul is really the only man standing fit for proper conservatives to rally round.
Here's a video of him. I can't find anything but good in what he says. A speech of freewheeling beauty in a world where so much is pre-planned, plotted and rehearsed indeed!
