James, it’s pretty obvious to me, if to no one else, that Ron Paul allowed his ego to cloud his judgment. As one of Paul’s supporters (who’s now backing Bob Barr) explained to me months ago, “The Ron Paul movement wasn’t about Ron Paul, it was about a movement.” The one person who apparently never understood that was Ron Paul.
As I just wrote at my own blog: “If Paul had endorsed Barr in May, when the media was all over the Libertarian threat, it would have made all the difference in the world. Paul’s endorsement of Chuck Baldwin in late September — when the media is fully absorbed in the Obama-McCain battle — is barely a pebble in a pond.”
So the Paulistas staged their anti-neocon protest at the GOP convention and what will they have to show for it in the end? Nada. Chumps.
