Ron Paul Draws More Than 2,000 Voters To Moscow Idaho, Doubling Expectations

• emalvini

BOISE, Idaho – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul attracted more than double the number of expected attendees of his large Moscow, Idaho campaign rally held at the University of Idaho.

The Moscow Rally took place at 4:00 p.m. at the campus’ Student Union Ballroom. Campaign officials planned to accommodate 1,000 guests – roughly a room capacity crowd – yet more than 1,000 additional people arrived. At stops along his Pacific Northwest campaign tour, the 12-term Congressman from Texas has made every effort to greet overflow crowds of voters outside speaking venues.

You pro-Ron Paul people, get it into your cabiza -- not a chance, dude! We are part of the anti-Ron Paul public. A handful of you should stop dreaming that a candidate from the "lunatic fringe" [New Hampshire newspaper] would [in your dream while awake] become the next President of the United States! That will never happen, dude...

You anti-Ron Paul people are starting to convince me that RP actually has a chance!

Hiring a professional photographer for a pose like this picture with such a scripted gesture of the hand and a microphone in front of him, neither impress the public nor fool me. Look what's in the background -- does that impress anyone that a great crowd was fighting for space to listen to him speak? Treating the public like kids does harm than good to Paul -- 'c'mon, handlers!

It seems that the people are curious to see how does an "unelectable" oddball candidate look like. The presence of the crowd does not mean Ron Paul can be elected President.  Far from it. It was just all fun in politics, while it lasted.
