Will the corporate liberals support Ron Paul when he is nominated to represent the GOP???
The short answer is NO.
Ron Paul is the guy who will try to upset the apple-cart. He's basically a kook, that's too old to be president. The dems figure to keep the Senate in 2012, unless the GOP can make 2012 a crusade to repeal Obamacare.
Then again the USSC might do that, so its a choice between the borrow+spend GOP and the tax+spend dems. Homer Simpson would pick the tax+spend like in the 1990s when we had a surplus.
You know how I know that you're delusional?
So you guys would rather have Obama then Ron Paul?
It's very unlikely that Ron Paul will get the nomination. And only 3% of Republicans identify as "liberal", corporate or otherwise "Conservatives" Are Single-Largest Ideological Group.
I'm sure that if Paul does get the nomination and no strong third-party bid occurs, most registered Republicans who vote will vote for him. He'd almost certainly lose the election though.
Honestly I'm not sure which would be worse.
Fortunately it won't happen. The American people might be dumb enough once to vote for a communist closet Muslim with no experience.
BUt they aren't crazy enough to vote for Paul. They proved that last time when Paul had his ass handed to him in every primary.
Corporate liberals? LOL NO- only Republicans would. Like everyone but Mitt, who fundies won't support. Gingrich/Paul 2012!! Change the channel...
Look at it this way. The President is the QB with brain-trusts like Carl Rove giving advice on what works and what doesn't. Ron Paul has no one who thinks like he does. I see a lot of very high quality spokesmen for Romney, but Ron Paul is alone. The Tea Party does not back him that I see.
Obama is harmless with the GOP in control of the House & Senate. I'm a big fan of divided government. Lets see what the "Super Committee" comes up with. If they let the automatic cuts happen, that's "something", its progress. Lets make another set of automatic cuts to cut another $2T.
