The Fall of the Republican Party
Media is all hype about the chances of Donald Trump becoming the Republican presidential candidate in 2012. His chances are slim but you’ll read about him every day on the papers. It’s a shame that Representative Ron Paul of Texas is not noticed enough by the media.
Rep. Paul as picked by the Conservative Political Action Committee as their choice for 2012. The Rasmussen poll also named him as the most competitive Republican that can run against President Obama. The NPR ran a March Madness contest among Republican politicians and the winner is, well you guessed it, Ron Paul.
These are just some early polls that picked Ron Paul as the likely Republican candidate but this would never happen unless the GOP has a sudden change of heart. Paul is an odd duck in the Republican Party. He was given the position as head of the Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Technology when he supported Representative Spencer Bachus of Alabama to be the chairman of the Committee on Financial Services.
The Republican leadership can’t handle Ron Paul’s rise and this could indicate that the party is using its edge. Ron Paul is a U.S. congressman who has a son that was elected into the Senate but news outfits focus more on Sarah Palin as the more serious Republican candidate. And then there’s Donald Trump.
