Ron Paul has ended Mitt Romney’s three-year run as conservatives’ favorite for president, taking 31 percent of the vote in the Conservative Political Action Conference’s annual straw poll.
Paul, a Republican congressman from Texas known for his libertarian views, ran for president in 2008 but was never a serious contender for the GOP nomination.
As always, the greatest threat to a Republican comeback continues to be Republicans. Oy.
Oh, and by the way. Glenn Beck gave the keynote. Double OY. I agree with Jim Hoft when he says…
Beck: It’s a disease. It’s not just taxing. It’s not just spending. It’s progressivism.
I appreciate several of the things Beck says but personally I hate it when he constantly beats up on the GOP.
I do wish he would recognize that not one single House Republican voted for the gigantic Stimulus Bill, the record Omnibus Bill, and the Son of Stimulus Bill in 2009. And, only 5 voted for the democrat’s business-busting cap-and-tax bill and only one voted for Obamacare.
There is hope. There is change. Then there is the GOP.
