Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh analyzed the impact that libertarian Ron Paul is having on the nomination process for the GOP.
According to Limbaugh, in New Hampshire, anyone can vote in a primary. It turns out that Ron Paul had more Democrat votes than Republican votes. Why? Because Democrats want to keep Paul in the race so that Santorum and Gingrich will be knocked out of the running. Democrats want Romney!
They want Ron Paul to continue to get big numbers and take away any high second- or third-place finishes from Santorum or Gingrich or Perry or anybody else. So the powers that be realize the monkey wrench that Ron Paul represents. Ron Paul is a conservative killer. Ron Paul kills the conservative vote, and the Romney camp wants him in there, encouraging him to stay in there.”
So the effort is being made here to encourage people to reach out to Ron Paul’s crazy, anti-defense supporters. A lot of his supporters are simply college kids who like his ideas on liberalizing drug laws. A lot of his supporters are young college kids who like his idea on gay rights. You know, they’re the young idealists who have only their own personal interests here at stake, and he’s out there representing it.
In short, Ron Paul is the new Ross Perot, whose campaigning against George Bush and Clinton resulted in splitting the vote and giving Clinton the win – and two terms in office.
