Karl Rove Worried About Ron Paul “Momentum”

Karl Rove Worried About Ron Paul “Momentum”
Bush’s brain fears “bandwagon effect” could trump national recognition in early Republican primaries

Without mentioning his name, Karl Rove made it clear during a recent appearance on Hannity and Colmes that he is worried about people jumping on a bandwagon and supporting a candidate who picks up momentum as a result of the early Republican primaries being bunched together tightly.

Since Rove had already discussed the other Republican candidates in the Fox News piece, he could only have been referring to Congressman Ron Paul.

The man who was dubbed “the architect” and “Bush’s brain” told Hannity he was concerned that the thick and fast style of the early primaries would hinder Americans from making a “more considered judgment,” increasing the likelihood of a “bandwagon effect” overcoming “national reputation.”

Here’s the quote in full.

HANNITY: Do you lean towards one strategy over the other? Or you don’t want to say?
ROVE: I don’t want to say. I —HANNITY: You do, though.
ROVE: But it is interesting to see that everybody has made their strategic bets. I’m not certain, incidentally, that this is helpful for the country, for this to be settled so quickly. I mean, people do need the time — this process ought to be spread out over time, in my opinion, because it allows more people to participate, more people in the country to develop a deeper understanding of who the candidates are, and for the people of America to make a more considered judgment.This thing is happening so quick on so many different battle fronts that I’m not certain, regardless of who makes the — who bet on the right strategy, there is going to be a bandwagon effect, no, national reputation is going to count — no matter which way that works out, I’m not certain it is necessarily in the best interest of the country.

With the media desperate to exalt Mike Huckabee’s campaign as some kind of alternative to the standard Neo-Con fare, it’s clearer than ever that the establishment are trying to run a dead horse against Hillary Clinton to ensure her victory.

As polls have shown, only Congressman Ron Paul could beat Hillary should they go head to head for the presidency, and that’s why people like Rove are scared stiff of the Texan building momentum during the key early primaries.

 

Ron Paul wins GOP straw poll

Aiken Standard
December 22, 2007

The front-runners for the Republican presidential nomination had to take a back seat in Aiken Thursday to a long-shot candidate with a small but loyal band of supporters.

Texas Congressman Ron Paul, a strict constructionist, was the surprise winner of the Aiken County Republican Party presidential straw poll with 30 percent of the vote.

“I don’t necessarily know if our results will hold come Jan. 19 during the state primary, but I do think the poll reflects the opinions of those that are very active in the party,” said Andy O’Bryne, party chairman.

Paul, who up to this point has been treated as a footnote in the GOP race, is known for a loyal base which routinely raises money, buys political signs and even stages campaign events on its own accord in the Texan’s name.

In a recent South Carolina poll conducted by CBS News and released Wednesday, Paul was not even listed in the final results. Typically the congressman receives somewhere between 5 and 7 percent in national polls.

“I think Congressman Paul has energized the libertarian portion of the party,” said O’Bryne. “They are a mature but active group. But I think that some of their issues are not necessarily in line with the consensus of the rest of the party.”

Among the issues that Paul and his supporters have disagreed with the party base on is the ongoing war in Iraq. Paul, who favors isolationism in regard to foreign policy, has repeatedly spoken out against the war and for the return home of U.S. soldiers.

While Paul was the winner of the straw poll, some of the more well-known candidates also placed well. In second was Fred Thompson, a former Tennessee senator, with 28 percent, followed by Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor, with 17 percent; Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts governor, with 11 percent; Arizona Sen. John McCain and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, both with 6 percent; and California Congressman Duncan Hunter, with 3 percent.

The straw poll, which was relegated to one of the smaller rooms in the Aiken County Council complex because of a council meeting, was a standing room only affair as more than 100 people showed up to cast a vote in support of their favorite candidate to succeed President George W. Bush in the White House.
