One of the great things about being a Paulbot is that you suddenly find yourself surrounded by a lot of other people who are also paying attention.
By Roger F. Gay
a magic formula read by Laura Ingraham last month, Romney advanced against Obama in the polls briefly this month before dropping back again to a somewhat more stable losing position.
The “magic formula” was to pretend to be Ron Paul. There are of course, people out there who don't pay much attention, who can often be counted on to respond positively to such shenanigans. But this month's polling results seem to confirm the obvious. Who Mitt Romney really is, is too well known, too obvious; and he's nowhere near as good an actor as Ronald Reagan or as confident with a jail house con as Newt Gingrich. The magic trick worked like a magic trick. Romney supporters had just enough time to applaud before it all went up in smoke.
One gets the sense that Team Obama is just playing with the guy. In case you've forgotten, we were all admiring how well they had done after his win in 2008. He'd first come from behind to overtake Hillary and then made John McCain look like an amateur. McCain had his few days in the sun too, with the Sarah Palin convention bump. If you don't see a pattern to it, you need to find your thinking cap. Conservative is popular. Fake conservatives are not.
Obama is bad, mmkay! But in order to beat him in November the Republican Party needs a better candidate. How about the obvious? A real conservative.
