I Cannot Vote for Ron Paul
That is what Newt Gingrich said on CNN news when asked if Ron Paul does, by some divine miracle -gone bad- is the Republican presidential candidate.
Who could NOT agree with that? Newt is telling it like it is- reality - that Ron Paul is such a loony with ideas and concepts that would never attract sane voters who are middle roaders, whether Republican or Democratic. Ron Paul's has serious age issues and baggage issues about what others wrote for him 20 years ago in newsletters that are inflammatory at minimum. Even if you give him the benefit of the doubt about memory loss, it is still to dangerous to elect a loon like Ron Paul who has tried this before. His son, is totally a different issue and could be a presidential candidate in the future, he is much more rational and mainstream.
Ron Paul is just a spoiler in the election process, a waste of his money and time. He will NEVER be a serious candidate even if he wins the Iowa causcaus. Nobody takes him serious and even his friends privately agree with Newt Gingrich. Is Ron Paul serious? He is a joke among the Republican candidates no matter how serious he tries to come across.
In the end, the only real viable Republican candidates will be Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and maybe Perry. Newt was simply voicing what most people think of Ron Paul. Sometimes, the truth is hard to face.
