Tonight on the docket ready set go in the state of problem -- -- yeah Ron Paul hit -- meadows state that would be South Carolina.
Very hard tonight -- his message of limited government and spending cuts.
But now he's adding a new issue running ads that focus on his pro life and family values message.
In an appeal to the more culturally conservative voters of South Carolina.
And reminding them the governor Romney was once to the left and Ted Kennedy on these issues.
You heard it here first.
Congressman Paul will finish strong in South Carolina a state struggling with high unemployment.
And harboring deep cynicism.
Of more George W.
Bush like big government.
From the Republicans.
Make no mistake congressman Ron Paul did very well -- last rates -- Hampshire primary.
Of the vote rather than the 17%.
That pollsters had predicted.
This firmly establishes Paul's position in a two way race with -- governor Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination.
As the results for coming in -- in an appearance on the daily show with Jon Stewart Jon had an observation that had me wondering.
Whether he has become a regular viewer of freedom watch Nicholas.
There's a strategy there is a cognitive dissonance.
In the Republican Party got all these guys -- there.
Talking about unfettered capitalism and attacking Mitt Romney.
For being the avatar of that you got all these guys talk at about freedom and then suggesting that gay people don't have the same rights as every other American.
How is that going to.
Five of those six candidates are repugnant to freedom.
They don't believe in the constitution they don't believe that our rights come from -- humanity they just believe in -- Republican version of big government.
Version of big government that's why so many GOP primary voters who turned to Romney seemed to do so out of resignation.
Rather than out of passion.
That's why so many GOP primary voters and independents are now turning to Ron Paul the only conservative running and the only -- and alternative.
To Mitt Romney.
It is time to dispense with the tired nonsense that Ron Paul is -- electable.
The same was said of another older guy from the west named -- about a generation ago polls show that and -- head to head match up with President Obama only Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
Are within the margin of error.
After Iowa and New Hampshire the two GOP candidates that have garnered the most votes are Mitt Romney and Ron Paul last night's primary.
Makes one thing very clear Ron Paul is the only electable alternative.
To Mitt Romney.
And he is the only Republican.
Who believes in small government sell.
-- the other candidacy and his call and drop out so conservative voters can get a real choice preacher and a real conservative.
And more of the same France's return to political strategist Jack Berkman Jack it's a pleasure -- -- happy new year thank you say to you welcome back.
To the show how did Ron -- do so well in New Hampshire yesterday well.
He's broadening his base of independence first though that was the worst case of media bias I have -- he's been the -- six or seven times of terrible media buys this was the worst 25% almost funny 524 point 8%.
Media downplayed -- I don't think there was hardly any about I think about bias today and reporting to resides highest during the campaign -- throughout both but -- today mainly in reporting the results today I think it was the worst single.
Incident medium media bias against wrong Ron Paul all your -- and there have been some very very bad why do why did independence go.
With Iran poll in Iowa and in New Hampshire and do you think we'll see the same phenomenon next week and South Carolina yes it's catching on he's broadening his base what's what's happening now as he started -- -- -- young people -- he's the only candidate with a base.
And that's really important all of the what do you mean the only cat with a bass he's it Romney has the establishment well but that's that's a fundraising base Ron Paul is the only guy out there with a real base of people that support him and the women in politics political strategist talk about -- -- Romney doesn't have a -- -- basis fundraising is just kind of back of an -- game.
Ron Paul knocks on doors he's got people behind -- Rick Santorum doesn't really -- that he might have a little one Gingrich doesn't have any leaders even have an organization.
All of these people have to -- create their base in every single state Ron Paul doesn't and the better news for him.
Is he surging in that he's he's reaching deeper and deeper -- his base is not just kids anymore it's soccer moms its independence of all kinds can he get.
The Republican -- oh yes I think I think you can't.
I think he's he will be in it till the end and we know that much for sure he's in it for the distance I mean.
Romney will be -- that Ron Paul will be -- it you're gonna have one conservative -- into -- probably battling for that third spot one of them and that they probably will drop away.
I would predict.
You could have all the way to the convention floor Ron Paul vs -- and Ron Paul could very well win I think.
Ron Paul here's what he's gonna do that Santorum and Gingrich have failed to do what he can expose the contradictions.
In a very lawyerly way.
-- -- He can say you were pro choice here not your pro life you were anti gay he had not you're a -- gain higher anti -- He has the ability to show the nation would Romney years.
-- failed to do that Gingrich -- failed to do that I think Ron Paul can do that last question is there -- belief amongst Republicans of anybody but.
Obama or is there -- belief that we need to have someone who was substantially different from Obama the -- the latter I think the big problem Romney would have as he just can't turn he can't turn the -- not at all and we're seeing today he's not even strong woman and independents if you in.
Ron Paul really beaten with independents in New Hampshire.
Romney is just all money it's all on air force got a -- it's he has neither based -- -- Jack -- a pleasure thanks for joining us congressman Ron Paul stops in --
