No conspiracy: Ron Paul just dislikes Santorum

• By Jennifer Rubin
 

When your candidate has a really rotten debate, the temptation is great to create a distraction. However, if the distraction is harebrained and unflattering to your candidate, you wind up making things worse.

That is essentially what happened yesterday when Rick Santorum and his team came out with a conspiracy theory that Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) and Mitt Romney were in cahoots. A source close to the Paul campaign told me last night that the Paul camp sees this as an effort by senior Santorum adviser John Brabender to distract the media from the fact that his candidate was “not ready for primetime.” The Romney camp did not return a request for comment. (Romney staffers no doubt believe in the adage that you should never get in the way when your opponent is doing harm to himself.)

 L. Neil Smith pegged Santorum: "He wants to be the American Ayatollah."

Just a question. If it is so out in the open that anybody can jump on the band wagon, is it still a conspiracy? I mean, doesn't a conspiracy have to be kinda hidden to be a conspiracy? Isn't this more like a coup than a conspiracy? I mean, aren't all the rest other than Ron Paul trying to do things with Government that the authority in Government, the Constitution, doesn't allow?

Santorum is part of a coup, along with the media and the other candiates and potential canditates... and President Obama, and maybe most of the Congress!

Vote Ron Paul 2012, and if he isn't on the ballot, write him in. And record the event with your cell-cam if you can get away with it.

If what Santorum said in the above linked radio interview is conservative, who needs 'progressives'?
