****** That gathering was unrepresentative of the GOP rank & file. They were idealogues. Also whhen it came to Voting it wasn't exactly too well organized. The Paul factor emerges in that kind of scenario. Most of the attendees went there to get fired up against Obama & Co - the Ron Paul Brigade went there to Win that Straw poll. They are patently dishonest and probably still filled with a degree of Lyndon Larouche type bullying liars.
******* Paul is going nowhere. As good as some of the Speakers were it has done next to nothing in terms of this November or 2012. Obama is not afraid of Paul or Palin or Newt - Romney however might beat him one on one.Huckabee is a fraud.
