Desperation. It stinks of desperation. During the Republican debate, CNN once again attempted to derail the Ron Paul campaign. This time they ran the following lower third under Paul as he spoke:
“Will Ron Paul let America down by not running as an independent?”
Obviously, CNN wants Paul to run as an independent because he is blowing the other candidates off the stage and basically over-turning the political establishment apple cart. People are sick and tired of the “conservatives,” who are really establishment bootlickers and neocons, and want a sincere candidate, one that represents change and traditional constitutional values.
This scares the dickens out of the corporate media – and that is why they have dedicated so little coverage to Ron Paul.
But it not going to work, as CNN’s own poll demonstrates (see the video).
