I was really hoping for a conservative candidate.

Its not looking good, I hope Paul can pull off a miracle

Oh Noes...

Can't believe he didn't wait till after Super Tuesday and another debate; if for no other reason than to get his message out!!!!
Link Posted: 1/22/2008 9:20:51 AM EST
About time.
Link Posted: 1/22/2008 9:21:25 AM EST

That's just sad...

Fred really messed up when he didn't announce sooner, he needed to strike while the iron was hot. I really don't know why he waited so long. It seems like the initial support he had moved on to other people because they got tired of waiting.

He got in too late, IMO.
Link Posted: 1/22/2008 9:22:28 AM EST
For real, or politically? It's never been easy to tell which would come first.

Fred gave future conservatives a case study on how NOT to run for President.

Link Posted: 1/22/2008 9:24:05 AM EST
I guess the true "cut and run", "defeatist", "coward" candidate shows his real colors (yellow) when the running gets tough. See ya Fred, don't let the door hit ya in the ass.



Link Posted: 1/22/2008 9:24:11 AM EST
Like most people, I didn't even get a chance to vote for him in my primary.

Fuck.

No kidding. Every state should have it's primary on the same day. The early states have too much power and influence. The current system makes no sense.

I'll be sure to find you on here when Ron Paul drops out.

Based on MSN's site - he has $7 million plus left in the war chest - it is BS that he did not at least make an effort in Florida.

I want my $100 back.

I don't think he entered too late--heck, he lead the national polls WHEN he entered. What he needed to do was to MAINTAIN that enthusiasm with constant hammering of his message and his opponents' weaknesses. Fred did not do that, whether because of his laid-back nature or lack of funds.

In any case, it's a shame this field now has no true conservative (except one unelectable, yet lovable nut-case).

I changed the title. I didn't mean it in poor taste.

Although, for someone who was hoping he would get some traction, he appeared dead to me during the whole campaign.

Fucking lazy.
Link Posted: 1/22/2008 9:27:59 AM EST
Well... fuck. Guess I can thank Fred for saving me the time to go to the polls in November. No point in voting for idiots who think the constitution is toilet paper, who enjoy throwing their constituency under the bus for the illegal immigrant vote, or who are just batshit crazy.

This November: None of the Above.

No surprise, his mother is verrrry sick and he's chosen to spend the past few days with her rather than campaigning.

ETA:

His campaign says no political endorsements coming, he's just closing shop and going home.

As far as the Presidency is concerned Paul was dead from day one, if Fred is dead Paul is a Zombie. But Paul will keep soaking the cult for money as long as he can.

fyi

THERE IS MORE TO BEING PRESIDENT THAN THE 2ND AMENDMENT!

One issue voting can lead to very bad unintended consequences.

Too bad... the usual suspects here on ARFcom will really crap when Thompson throws his support to that POS McCain... oh the drama...
