I realize that I just published article on why the media ignores Ron Paul (not the first on this site), so I am aware of the irony here. But, it was encouraging to stumble upon this great commentary by Dan McGinnis, a contributor to Yahoo! News.
Ron Paul is gaining ground in early primary states and his surge is likely to differ from other candidates – like Bachmann, Perry, Cain, and soon, Gingrich – in that Paul supporters are loyal and dedicated to the idea of liberty, not simply to beating Obama.
McGinnis does point out Paul’s recent surge in the polls, but he goes further to offer high praise for Paul’s ideas and character. Here’s an excerpt:
“Last week, Paul said if Iran’s nuclear program was a true threat, then President Barack Obama should go to Congress and ask for a declaration of war. I like the idea of requiring the president to follow the Constitution when it comes to committing the military. Modern presidents have forgotten that. It was refreshing to see one candidate reminding everyone that the American president cannot do just anything they want to do.
I don’t know whether Paul can pull together enough supporters, money and political momentum to nudge out the other “frontrunners.” What I do know is that the man is serious and he’s getting people’s attention. That sounds presidential to me.”
