Jon Huntsman must be doing something right. The mass media is saying he isn’t much of a contender, that he doesn’t have enough name recognition and that he is too late in the game. They say Ron Paul is too whiny, an isolationist and they dismiss Paul and Huntsman as real contenders in the presidential race.
The mass media will support the weakest GOP contender so that Obama has a better chance, a caller told us today on Fox News Radio.
“Exactly,” I replied.
And whom is the mass media trying to tell you are the front-runners in this race? Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann.
I like Mitt Romney enough – if I was more interested in Obama-bashing than actually solving problems, that is. If I wanted a former governor who’s state finished close to last (47th) in job creation, someone who supported the Recovery Act although it made our economy worse and someone who allowed gay marriage in his state during his term. If I wanted a politician who says what he thinks I want to hear instead of actually acting, then I would vote for Romney.
And I like Bachmann decently, as well. But I’m going to be honest; I don’t think America is about to vote in a woman, especially with how much the mass media hounds and belittles Sarah Palin. Sad but true.
Maybe you’re not a Huntsman fan. That’s OK. Maybe you don’t care for Paul. Though as I pointed out to the listener today, do you know anything about Paul, or just what the mass media has told you? Because they would never have an agenda and use their power to change your mind, right?!
Take a closer look at Paul. You say you want our soldiers to come home. You say you want to protect our Country from illegals. You say you want to defend our Country and quit using tax dollars for foreign aid. You say you want a better economy and less government regulation. But then you say you wouldn’t dare vote for Ron Paul.
Do some research and then we’ll take about Ron Paul some more.
In the meantime, bank on this. If CNN tells you who the front runners are, know that what they are really doing is giving you the guy they don’t think can win so that Obama has a better chance at reelection.
I now see why the Democrats in Washington County told us two months ago they are confident in his reelection.
