    I see this point as a key of focus (especially if Newt gets castrated in Iowa). Never underestimate the power of polarizing the southern states from their New England cousins. I think the libertarian values may raise up state rights values long forgotten (hopefully sans racism).

    Illustrations of mistakes of the other candidates are fair game for this thread.

    Yeah that seemed both dumb and wasteful. Maybe a little but I say way too many Perry ads in California and thought to myself. "If this guy wins I hope he is not as wasteful with my tax dollars as he is with his campaign cash".

    Also if Paul wins Iowa (or even comes in a close second) he should be ready to bare and counter attack a spanking from the media and the Republican leadership who will drop the ignore gun and whip out the belt.

    Paul is now ahead in Iowa.

    Iowa: Paul 23, Romney 20, Gingrich 14, Santorum/Perry/Bachmann 10, Huntsman 4, Johnson 2

    There's only 2 weeks so hopefully things will mostly stay the same. Nonetheless, Paul now needs to attack Romney hard and become the anti-Romney. More Newt supporters have Romney as their second instead of Paul so Newt falling more won't help.

    By the way I love the strategy of this campaign. Back in college I helped run and win an anti-establishment campaign for student president. Most fun I had in college were those couple of weeks of strategizing and campaigning.

    Yeah now its crunch time. No use in spending money on the negative adds for Newt his goose is cooked (at least as far as Iowas concerned) No more Newt on the menu, now is the time to take off the Mittens. This goes double in New Hampshire and South Carolina (as well as Nevada, I wouldn't spend as much dough on Florida which is being penalized anyway by %50 of its delegates. He just made another 4 million from another Tea Party money bomb last weekend. Now is the time to invest in an add blitz.

    As far as all the weird stuff happening in world events its just as well that the last debate prior to Iowa caucus is over.

    At first I didn't think my favorite candidate [Ron Paul] had a rat’s ass chance in winning the nomination. Now I think that it is still against the odds yet also it is reasonably possible.

    Some of the reasons I feel it’s an uphill battle is because:

    So if you were Ron's campaign manager what tactics/strategies would you use to win the Presidency from this point on?
    I would teach Ron Paul how to effectively communicate to an NT audience. I can only take so much of his whiny-emotional communication style before...

    Most importantly, I would like to see Ron Paul prove he doesn't completely lack the ability to compromise because if he does lack the ability to compromise, I imagine he will be a very stubborn president.

    RP is not a natural charismatic speaker but maybe its not too late for him to join toastmasters and get some pointers.

    Back when I took some leadership training and they suggested entering into a leadership scenario initially as a hard ass or not pandering oneself as a compromiser as did Obama. Let them earn it. In the meantime his views are varied enough where he could work on forming political coalitions (such as to do a more aggressive audit of the fed and limit their ability to write blank checks for trillion dollar bailouts for their buddies).

    Nothing like taking the lead for the dirty pool to begin against Ron watch the interviewer play the race card (and reading his body language one can tell the reporter is asking these questions because his boss insisted, he [the interviewer] even looks guilty/ashamed ) Fast forward to about 6:30 on the below video clip for the racy parts.






    If you don't know what they are talking about this relates to a 20 year old story where one of the writers for Ron Paul’s newsletters started writing some articles that were not just racist but 'off the wall' racist for a short period of time. Ron Paul disavowed the opinions and subsequently the president og the NAACP said Ron Paul is not a racist.

    Interesting. I think Ron Paul is a good man. He may have disavowed his views once he saw the negative affect it had on people; at minimum, he didn't thoroughly QA his newsletter. Regardless, I think he should take responsibility for everything that was published under his name that he made money off of, which he doesn't appear to be doing now. And maybe he already did that 20-yrs ago and feels like he shouldn't have to go over it again, but to those of us that are still on the fence about him and just now hearing about the newsletter writings, it's like it just happened. What would it hurt for him to be humble, be calm, put a smile on his face, accept responsibility for the facts, and apologize for not doing a thorough QA check before the final release? I would respect that. I don't respect the emotional distress coupled with resistance to address all of the facts/concerns.
