    Ron Paul wins CPAC in a landslide.

    Ron Paul wins CPAC landslide - The Hill's Pundits Blog

    An actual, hardcore fiscal conservative won the poll and this means he'll be one of the 3 finalists for Republican nomination should he decide to run for president.

    The man who finished 2nd is essentially the original founder of Obamacare, Mitt Romney.

    Is it time for real hope and change?

    We should be as lucky.

    Still, the GOP remains stocked to the gills with neocons and fundie prigs, who've dragged the party so far to the nanny-statist left that it's sickening.

    I agree, but at least this is a good sign. They might even have to pass some more legislation like they did after Perot to make sure their gridlock remains in place.

    I was pretty much laughing during every 2008 republican debate (didn't watch the democrat debates) because how obvious it was who the media wanted to win. Let's just ask Romney and McCain question after question after question. I'm not just saying this because I'm a Ron Paul supporter, they didn't even give Mike Huckabee a chance to answer anything either.

    I saw him this morn on Morning Joe (msnbc), they kept throwing stuff at him and all of his replies were dead on actual conservative. It threw the msn crew off thier game, they didn't know how to reply to him.

    The hard part is getting him nominated with a legit running mate, after that he should win hands down.

    A lot of republicans don't agree with him on social issues, and that's fine, but anyone who considers themselves fiscally conservative knows he's the only rational choice.

    Paul brings logic to discussions where the people who are countering seemingly can only bring emotion. Giuliani tried the same thing in the debates, just ended up looking like an idiot like he always does.

    They did after most of the laggards dropped out and the Huckster was merely there to sandbag Romney.

    It was, however, obvious that Fox was pulling for Ghouliani, while pushing the old schoolers like Dr. Paul, Tancredo and Hunter to the back of the bus.

    Yeah the debate that's freshest on my mind was the one on CNN. It was like watching a 2 person debate and Paul/Huckabee were just given front row seats to the Romney/McCain show.
