Jon Stewart Scolds Media For Ignoring Rep. Ron Paul: ‘I Mean, F*ck That Guy, Right?’

Stewart then turned to the Sunday morning talk show talking points, and found that, universally, Bachmann, Romney, and Perry were considered the “top tier.” “You’re not forgetting anyone?” Stewart asked, referring to Rep. Paul, who had come in second. Rep. Paul managed to be ignored over Rick Santorum– “he lost to the guy who lost so bad he dropped out of the race”– and Jon Huntsman, who got 69 votes. “If all of Jon Huntsman’s supporters met at the Ames, Iowa Quiznos, the fire marshal would say, ‘yeah, that’s fine, here are some more seats.’” Stewart found it bewildering that Rep. Paul had become “the 13th floor of a hotel,” culminating with a clip of a CNN anchor requesting a reporter leave out the Ron Paul reporting if they found any juicy Sarah Palin stuff– saying, in Stewart’s words, “I mean, f*ck that guy, right?”

This is a great clip. The mainstream media is out to sink Ron Paul (again), so it is up to EVERYONE to see his message get out so we can have fair elections (barring the vote fraud!).

I think mass street protests may be the way to go. Overwhelming support. Solidarity. We should aim to have hundreds of thousands of people in the street fighting, not for a left or right wing candidate, but for someone who represents the rule of Law over the criminal establishment.

Everyone must rally around Congressman Ron Paul so we can literally kick out the criminals. It's an idealistic scenario but at the end of the day SOMETHING has to be done in the face of such blatant corruption.

spook,

personally, I think Rep. Paul would find Elizabeth Warren a good running mate and that ticket would beat Obama/monypockets.

The question would be whether Warren's advocacy of consumer protection would be consistent with Paul's advocacy of limited government and the elimination of such federal functions as the protection of consumers from fraud and harmful products.

I suspect that Rep. Paul would allow that consumer protection was a state's responsibility, so that it would be possible for some products that harm consumers and lie about that fact could be sold in some states and yet not in others.

But, irregardless of whether the two people hold consistent views, their political positions would cross party lines in a way that would give Obama a run for his money.

I am told that progressive Dems are trying to find a politician to run against Obama in the Dem primaries.

My thought would be to run Rep. Paul as a challenger, and promote him as a write in if he was rejected because he was a Republican.

I am not interested in seeing someone like Kucinich do this work again only to see him give up at the end for the sake of the party.
