    Color of the GOP mood ring? Rainbow, of course. They cannot settle on one mood, or opinion, or candidate, so rainbow it is. Gotta love it!

    Why is CNN propagating the myth that Ron Paul cannot win?
    He has increasingly placed higher and higher, all while amassing more and more delegates. Consider his most recent finish in Washington where he finished 2nd, with 25% of the populace. Why has CNN not reported on the real story? The real color of the GOP mood ring.
    That color is Ron Paul and it's color is getting brighter and brighter as the message of liberty resonates louder and louder.

    Perhaps if CNN would provide fair and accurate coverage, and include Ron Paul voters would not become disenfranchised?
    How is a news corporation doing it's job if it's causing people to not vote?
    Perhaps it is doing it jobs, if that job is to ensure that only certain people are elected.
    But wouldn't that rise the question that perhaps the media is controlling who is elected?
    Then that would bring up the question, who is really in control of the media?

    I'm not a Paul supporter, but I sympathize with your anger. To answer your question about who controls the media: big money interests, that's who. They feel they can't push Paul around, so they tell their puppets in the media not to cover him. They their media puppets to hire writers and analysts who dismiss Paul's views.

    I'd have to say the mood ring is dark and dismal as it can get.

  5. The Elephant In The Room

    Whatever color is associated with cold.

    None of the most capable GOP politicians [Jeb Bush, Mitch Daniels, whomever] wants the Presidential job because they ALL KNOW that Mr. Obama was handed a big bag of ca-ca in January 2009. They wanted him to fix it before they put their hand prints all over the Oval office. Only the "c-players" [the Perrys, Trumps, Romneys, Gingrinches, Santorums, Bachmanns] sought to lie-cheat-steal their way into the Oval office.

    Smart GOP donors, voters, and candidates are saving their energy & money for 2016.
