Trump to Ron Paul fans at CPAC: C’mon, you know he can’t get elected

posted at 6:15 pm on February 10, 2011 by Allahpundit

Amusing and certainly true, but as a heckler helpfully reminded him, that’s an awfully big stone to be throwing from a house that glassy. Says a Paul advisor:

Joe Seehusen, Paul’s former deputy campaign manager, had one question for Trump: “What do you know about politics? I like Donald, but I think Donald gets carried away sometimes.” He added there “was s certain preposterousness” that Trump, who has never held public office, could criticize an 11-term congressman for not winning election.

Why is Trump even at CPAC, you ask? Because GOProud invited him, ostensibly to “help support the conference.” How it helps the conference to have a publicity whore show up to tout his vanity candidacy, I’m not sure. But give ‘em credit for knowing their audience: Apparently, The Donald brought down the house. Click the image to watch.

Update: Rand Paul sticks up for dad.

He also gets endorsed by neo-Nazi groups like Stormfront.

annoyinglittletwerp on February 10, 2011 at 7:10 PM

Hey, maybe we ought to invite Stormfront to CPAC next year. After all, surely they are conservative on fiscal issues. Who cares about that NAZI angle? It wouldn’t mean people were endorsing Neo-Nazism if they merely attend the conference, right? And anybody who would boycott the conference would be sitting a dimly lit room mumbling to themselves, rather than participating.

Neil Cavuto is a brilliant conservative.
Alex Jones is a truther conspiracy theorist

They are in NO way equivalent!

Btw:Almost every Ron Paul supporter I’ve encountered has been a truther.

My guess is that 95% + of Tim Pawlenty supporters-I am one- aren’t truthers.
Ditto for the supporters of:
Gov. Palin
Daniels
Newt
Romney
Huck
Cain
Etc…yet Ron Paul seems to attract truthers like moths to a bug-zapper.

Why is that?
Please explain.
You have my rapt attention.

He’s a master at saying everything negative about Israel and the banks…but never actually using the “J” word.

MadisonConservative on February 10, 2011 at 7:16 PM

So is it your contention that the State of Israel and the banks should be above reproach… because there are Jews involved in both?

JohnGalt23 on February 10, 2011 at 7:42 PM

I don’t see the glass house. Paul has proven, repeatedly, that he cannot win on a National platform. Isn’t it a bit premature to dismiss Trump as a vanity candidate?

I can think of another self-confident Republican, who is incredibly blunt, and enjoying great success right now. One man’s teachers union is another’s OPEC.

Trump has never been a public servant, but he has been a Chief Executive and seems to have a pretty strong grip on global economics. He, like Christie, also seems pretty good at playing to the crowd he hopes to represent.

They are, in fact, equivalent in at least one way… they both like giving Ron Paul airtime? Should Ron Paul turn down that airtime, despite having disagreements with both over very important policies?

Btw:Almost every Ron Paul supporter I’ve encountered has been a truther.

Something tells me I’ve encountered a lot more than you have. And I of very few who even brook such talk, much less engage in it.

But please… provide me a link where RP has ever, in written or spoken word, given any credence to the idea that the 9/11 attacks were perpetrated by anyone other than Islamist terrorists. He’s a very public figure. If 9/11 truth is such a central part of his politics, surely you can provide some links of his Trutherism.

Because I know I can provide plenty where he publicly denounces it.

JohnGalt23 on February 10, 2011 at 7:28 PM

Nice logical fallacy there. Neil Cavuto isn’t a nutjob. Alex Jones is, and either you know it, or you’re as nutty as he is.

I’m not going to produce a list of truther rallies for you.

I noticed you didn’t address the fact that he’s both a John Birch fan and an NAU nutjob. Wonder why that is?

If he wants to slash spending, why is he still spending on earmarks? Not much of a Tea Party representative.

And some crank politicians are more inconsistent than others. Ron Paul being one of them.

He said Iran poses no threat to us. Are you familiar with what the word “harmless” means? He also said they have no army, navy, or air force. What a smart guy. They’re clearly no threat to us. I guess if they want to wipe Israel off the map, though, that’s just f**king dandy. After all, they run the banks, right? The Protocols said so.

His title is Congressman or Representative Paul, by the way. You cultists love the “Dr. Paul” label because you worship the guy.

MadisonConservative on February 10, 2011 at 7:52 PM

I frankly think a Trump candidacy could get a bigger following of the masses than you give him the potential for. People love a celebrity, i.e. Reagan, Ventura, Schwarzenagger, and the national mood still seems to be in favor of a candidate outside of the typical Washington politicians. Add to his resume the business expertise that Romney brings, and the no nonsense outspokeness that lots of people love about Christie and their could just be a winning formula there. Then again, I thought Guillianni had a good shot too…….

It is my contention when the rhetoric of a paleocon, be it Pat Buchanan, or Lew Rockwell, or Ron Paul, or Murray Rothbard, or whoever, sounds damn near identical to the rhetoric of this book, rhetoric that has been passed down for the last century, that I take it for the dusty, overused bulls**t it’s always been.

Easy way to spot the contention: be it the 9/11 hijackers, or Bin Laden, or Iran, or Palestine, or Egypt, or Syria, or Jordan, or any other body which wants to slaughter Jews, they’re all somehow “pushed” into their acts of mass murder by Israel, by the US, by Britain, or by whatever Western forces try to stop them. At the same time, those Western forces are just “evil occupiers carrying out terrorism on these poor oppressed people”.

Hell, some of them go right ahead and invoke Godwin.

Why does Ron Paul seem to be the only GOP candidate that attracts truthers?

You’d have to ask one of them. I don’t know many Truthers, and actively ridicule them when I do have the misfortune.

What I do know is that Ronald Reagan himself said when someone supports you, that means they support your ideas, not that you support their ideas. If Truthers follow Paul, they support a man who roundly denounces Trutherism in very public forums.

Unless of course you’d care to prove otherwise? I’m still waiting on that link to Ron Paul espousing 9/11 Truth.

But you yourself, Madcon, made the point that RP never… oh, how did you put it?… uses the “J” word?

So, does he make it a point to not come down on WASP bankers? Or does he just happen to think that banksters are playing a rigged game, where they borrow money at favorable rates, loan at higher rates, and then have overseer of the money bail them out when they fail to turn a profit?

Once again, all he can do is denounce their beliefs. If they continue to follow him after that… well, I guess they must care more about Paul’s other position than their crazy conspiracy talk.

You said that truthers are attracted to RP’s ideas.
Well-why are his ideas more attractive to them then the ideas of someone Sarah Palin ?

Once again, you have to inquire of a truther. I can’t see inside their heads.

However, I’m quite sure that SP has plenty of followers who engage in idle speculation about the origin of our President, claiming, (with as little proof as the Truthers, mind you) that he wasn’t born in Hawaii. Now, I’m certain that at some point, SP will say that’s crazy talk, and I want nothing to do with it. Should we call her a Birther if people continue to campaign for her?

Nice logical fallacy there. Neil Cavuto isn’t a nutjob. Alex Jones is, and either you know it, or you’re as nutty as he is.

Why would I know? I’ve never listened to him. But I’m willing to bet I find Alex Jones far less nutty than Chris Matthews or Christiane Amanpour. Should Dr. Paul boycott their programs also?

I’m not going to produce a list of truther rallies for you.

Yeah. That’s pretty much what I thought. Because you know and I know that you can’t.

I noticed you didn’t address the fact that he’s both a John Birch fan and an NAU nutjob. Wonder why that is?

I have no particular beef with the Birchers. The ones I’ve met seem to be pretty solid citizens. And no, not one of them tried selling me on the idea that Ike was a ComSymp.

Which is more than I can say about the folks I’ve met around here.

And the NAU crowd… they’re absolutely right. I’m quite sure that in places like Davos and and Zurich and Bonn and London that there was talk about a united Europe, decades before the Maastricht Treaty. Do you really think that in some of those very same places, there isn’t talk about a united North America?

Dr. Paul has said openly, in Presidential debates even, that this isn’t conspiracy talk… that independent, very influential NGO’s like the CFR and the Tri-Lateral Commission exist, and that some of their membership have called for integration of nation-states into regional superstates, like the EU.

If he wants to slash spending, why is he still spending on earmarks? Not much of a Tea Party representative.

Not evena member of their caucus.

But when did he vote for any of those earmarks MadCon? I’d sure like a link to that roll-call vote.

He said Iran poses no threat to us. Are you familiar with what the word “harmless” means? He also said they have no army, navy, or air force. What a smart guy. They’re clearly no threat to us.

Let’s see… $700 billion defense budget against… what?… $25-30 billion?

Well, I’m not worried. But if you enjoy being intimidated by videotapes of parades, I guess you are beyond help.

I guess if they want to wipe Israel off the map, though, that’s just f**king dandy.

Gee, must have missed that part about Israel being the 51st state, and that would explain my lack of commitment to defending them.

What’s that? They aren’t a part of the United States? Oh… so that’s why I don’t feel the need to defend them. It’s that whole “sovereign state” thing working there.

They have a nuclear arsenal. Something tells me they’ll be just fine.

His title is Congressman or Representative Paul, by the way. You cultists love the “Dr. Paul” label because you worship the guy.

For me, it’s just a title that takes less time to write.

But I suspect Emily Post would tell you that it is perfectly appropriate to address him as Dr. Paul, as opposed to the standard honorific “Mr.” when referring to Congressmen.

It was well done and I am pretty sure followed the debunking that popular mechanics did with their engineers (I am an engineer and took a materials science class at Purdue, thus I believe the towers came down because the structure was so hot, the molecules in the steel changes properties, became “soft”, and crumpled.

I have seen several video’s of Trump and I am not sure or saying I would vote for him but I liked what he had to say. One was that he wants the UN out of our country which is what I feel they are worthless and need to go somewhere else. I like his idea of taxing the crap out of China, Japan for imports said if he did that we could pay our national debt in one year. I also like his dislike towards NAFTA. There were a lot of issues that Trump talked about that I have been hoping to hear from a prospect for a candidate. Trump is a business man and I truly feel our country needs to be treated like a business. That is how I feel. Bachman is beautiful and I like how she stands as well. She is a true Patriot. Ron Paul oh what is to say except he has nothing but fruit cakes that end up supporting him and some things he says I don’t like at all. Gingrich he is a joke a total joke. Romney no thank you although some ditzy women like him because of his looks! How stupid can some be, looks can be deadly and all we need is for him to try to shove his Romney care down our throats. Then there is Huckawannabee. I cannot stand him he is two faced and from Arkansas. I do really like Col. West and even Herman Cain is a great intelligent man. Only my thoughts of rambling.

The Ron Paul bots that are truthers are the equal to the Dennis Kucinich supporters in the Democrat Party. Their goal is to get Obama reelected so they can spread anarchy …many of them are being supported by monies from CAIR and other Van Jones type groups…. ask them where they get their money to attend things like CPAC when these low life scum students do not work…. follow the $$$$

Dude, did you even follow the link to MM’s post?

What? You mean the one where he says:

Well, I never automatically trust anything the government does when they do an investigation because too often I think there’s an area that the government covered up, whether it’s the Kennedy assassination or whatever.

Or where he says:

Too often investigations on almost any issue is usually a cover-up.

Are you trying to tell me that the 9/11 investigation was pure as the driven snow? That there was no CYA involving FBI tips going unheeded, or breakdowns in our immigration system?

All I see MM doing (besides owning up to a moment of very lax journalism on her part, for which I commend her) is quoting Ron Paul as saying he is immediately skeptical of the investigations that went on. Nowhere do I see anything that approaches him saying: Agents of our government conspired to blow up the WTC and the Pentagon.

Perhaps you will show me where he says it, or admit that you cannot.

Initially I had no problem with GoProud. I am starting to. I suspect(truly hope not) elements of militance are creeping/have crept in. And while we’re on the subject, I’m seeing a little of that in the Tea Party here in NH too. They seem to have been(or are at potential to be)co-opted by the Free Staters and they will certainly lose my support if that happens. I hope they can hold them at bay. When it comes to Alinsky, it seems many have learned a lot. But, since the rest of us know too, the element of sneak is gone. lol

I don’t take kindly to being patronized.

This comment is both silly considering that this is the internet and nobody really knows you, and ironic considering your carefully chosen screen name.

I just saw Alex Jones on some TV show about a super secret Republican retreat in the CA redwoods. Kept breaking in trying to find evidence of a grand conspiracy. Something about a “Cremation of Care” ritual.

Ron Paul is the Ralph Nader of the Republican Party. Just a nuisance and his followers are a bunch of clowns. Face it Paulbots your guy can’t win.

saltydogg14 on February 11, 2011 at 9:54 AM

who cares…. Reagan said about gays, liberations…ect… they are all welcome to the GOP. If Ron Paulbots want to chase people away from the GOP…then they are nothing but democrats. Reagan believed in BIG TENT..not FAT HEADS!!!!

It’s not exactly a secret here that I’m a woman. JohnGalt is aware of it as well. It was quite obvious what he was doing and I wasn’t going to put up with it.

How it helps the conference to have a publicity whore show up to tout his vanity candidacy, I’m not sure.

Sure this applies to Trump, but I submit that it applies in equal measure to GOProud.

So is it your contention that the State of Israel and the banks should be above reproach… because there are Jews involved in both?

OMG.
