Toward the end of his supposedly “major” political speech this week (that most “smart” politicians would memorize), Marco Stupido stopped and whined that he left the last page of his speech, and asked someone nearby for it, who then handed it to him. (“Oh, Mommy! Help me, Mommy!”)
Now, would Ronald Reagan have done that? Of course not. First of all, Reagan would have had his speech memorized, except for keeping some notes with him. If Reagan came to a point at which he either “left a page somewhere” or even just forgot what the next point was, he would have improvised the rest! I believe that Ron Paul never has prepared speeches and, with the exception of perhaps some brief notes with him, he improvises everything.
Ronald Reagan back then and Ron Paul now, both known for thinking on their feet. But Marco Stupido has an infantile dependence on his handlers nearby to save him from embarrassment. What are we going to do with a Vice President (or, God forbid, President) Marco who responds to a crisis by whining that he can’t finish a sentence or make a decision without his handlers?
Oh, and regarding his neocon warmongering and immoral, anti-liberty, anti-property government interventionism and expansionism, I wonder how much the “defense” contractors have contributed to Marco’s campaign coffers (or should that be, “coughers”?)
