Interview 1,000 random voting age Americans from all geographic and economic levels and you'll get 400, maybe, that know who Ron Paul is.

I'm lukewarm on Obama myself, but if the Republicans put up a 75 year old (or whatever) fruitcake, then Obama is gonna roll to victory.

Right up until the debates start and Obama destroys the current field of weak sauce.

I'm not kidding -- Obama is a truly great public speaker, but the Republicans can take the WH away from him if they can field someone who doesn't flat out suck.*



*assuming the economy continues sputtering along like it has been, of course.

Tell me the truth Pat -- and without saying "I hate Obama worse" or whatever dodge you could employ -- does the thought of Paul, Bachmann or Palin (currently undeclared I know) as the Republican candidate not fill you with dread?

He's a much greater speaker when he can say nothing and allow his listener to imagine sunshine and prosperity. When his hollow oratory contrasts with the wreckage of his record, the results may not be so favorable for him.

I think Paul's problem is that he is a niche candidate and already has the support of everyone who finds him palatable.

If, say, Bachmann goes out, those people aren't going to Paul, they will go to Romney or Perry or someone else more mainstream. In my opinion.

Last time around Paul's massive fundraising made little difference. I think that too is a sign that he's topped out on his appeal. Right or wrong, I think those are the facts.

Most people like myself like him, like him in Congress, but don't like him as a potential President.

I disagree. Remember, Obama took on -- whoever it was -- all the House Republicans or whatever, and wrecked 'em.

He can handle his own very well in debates, not just reading off teleprompters, including on very specific policy areas. Love him or hate him, he's Reaganesque or Clintonesque when it comes to public speaking. And that makes him a brutal opponent to deal with come election time.

Obama isn't a speaker, he's a pompous bullshitter full of sound and fury that is much ado about nothing.
Problem is there may now be enough voters in our country either too ignorant or to willfully blind to recognize the uppity bullshit boy for what he is and what he isn't.

Agree with every word, including "like him in Congress". I'm not sure *I* would vote for him, but I think his general intelligence and point of view are useful in the public forum of debate.

But he's topped out on his appeal. He is what he is -- the ardently loved and revered spokesperson for a solid 3-5% of American voters. That's it.

Well, he didn't really have a record to run on last time, Amno. He does this time. Sure, there will be plenty who still listen him to him just to hear him speak, but there will be a lot more this time who will actually be listening to the words.

WTF is he going to run on?

Careful, your racism is showing. Again.
