Paul Says His Campaign's Momentum Will Continue

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul told supporters Saturday that the momentum of his campaign will continue.

Paul told a cheering crowd that his campaign started as a way to grow support for his libertarian ideas. But now he said his campaign is focused on winning delegates to secure the GOP nomination for the White House.

Exit polls showed the Texas congressman placing fourth in the state's Republican primary Saturday evening.

    I can't wait until February when Ron Paul wins all the caucus states, anyone who says Ron Paul cannot win does not understand the proportional delegate system. With 3 different states and 3 different winners, anyone could win. Ron Paul WILL do very well in the coming caucus states.

    Ron Paul is nothing more than a old fool that needs to go home and sit on the porch and draw his social security check.

      LOL...That won't happen because he is going to win and social security is unconstitutional.

    It's my REPUBLICAN vote to waste any way I see fit. If the other clowns are the best our party can do, and the rest of the nitwits can't see what Paul is, let them waste their vote for the same old same old. When rich people are going to DC trying to get the government to raise taxes on the top 2% and the ignorant morons won't raise taxes on the top 2% I would say that the ignorant morons aren't representing the top 2%.

    He's exactly what America needs, and the only real free market capitalist running. Love 'em, and I hope he's still in it by the time our primary comes around. If not, I'm not going to bother voting- the rest are just more of the same ole' big talk, do nothings- hardly worth the 5 minutes it'd take to put their name on a ballot.

          Well, at least he was a leader and had a stance on international politics...Obama bows to Saudi king....says he sorry for us being Americans...We are just so glad you will vote for Obimbo again...that way you can say you voted for the worst president in history twice but he lost the second time. Did you by any chance vote for Carter too?

          To osoc@6:10 Unfortunately Obama has to clean up Bush’s mess so the transition in policies might not be easily detectable through superficial observation at this point. Two readily visible differences between Bush’s policies and Obama’s would be the arrogance displayed in publicly articulating policy and the intelligence level in understanding the objective of what a particular policy is capable of achieving. So for Obama it’s sort of like weaning yourself off of heroin by the use of a methadone program. You just don’t stop cold turkey, you incrementally make the transition to get clean. When you think about how encompassing a Global War on Terror can be, and how unrealistic in it’s scope the objective was defined, naturally you make subtle changes that aren’t perceptible —but are significant. Just like Obama is currently doing. All the King’s horses and all the King’s men can’t clean up the mess that the decider began! Just you cannot ask them, they are DEAD: Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki, Abu Hafs al-Shahri, ‘Atiyah ‘Abd al-Rahman, Ilyas Kashmiri, Ammar al-Wa’ili, Abu Ali al-Harithi, and Ali Saleh Farhan, Harun Fazul, Baitullah Mahsud, Noordin Muhammad, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, Saleh al-Somali, Abdul Ghani Beradar, Haqqani, Muhammad Haqqani, Lashkar-e Jhangvi, Qari Zafar, etc. etc. etc.

        Ron Paul along with Mitt Romney have the best chance to beat Obama not Gingrich or Frothy. Ron Paul is the only true conservative in the race.

    The only candidate that's TRULY for a smaller government and across the board cuts. I believe in our Constitution, so I'm voting for Paul.

    Truth is, he won't win. He is THE only one that can make a difference, but the media (including FOX news), RNC lap dogs (Rush, Hannity, ect.) and bank puppets will not give him a fair shake. I continually ask the question to those that pose it "Well WHY is he not electable?" As far as I know, he meets the requirements set forth by the contstitution. And for all those that love to use those adjectives such as kooky, weird or wacko to describe him, well you're only showing the depth of your own understanding.

      Another anonymous poster calling DOCTOR PAUL a fool,stupid,etc.Judging by your post you cannot call ANYONE stupid.He most certainly is for the USA and you are a victim of propagandi if you think bad guys are suddenly going to rush in if he is elected.I have news for you the "bad guys",as you so eloquently stated,are here already.They have been running this country straight into the ground and I am not just talking about Obama.Come on ,three mistakes in one sentence, CLEARLY YOU CANNOT CALL ANYONE STUPID!

      Sure an adulterer is a better choice(insider).Get REAL.I dont know much about Santorum but I have followed Ron Paul for 12 years and he is ALWAYS on point and has the same message now as when I first was blessed with this message of liberty.
