RON PAUL: I am gaining recognition in the campaign and it’s a threat to a lot of people. It’s a threat to the military-industrial complex, it’s a threat to the bankers, the big corporations who get all the benefit, it’s a threat to the people who preach that we have to be in the world, and be in all these countries. So I think it’s big banks, big money, big corporations and the people who want to be the warmongers. (CHANTS OF “RON PAUL!”, “RON PAUL!”, “RON PAUL!”) CARL CAMERON (FOX NEWS): Congressman Paul, another question about electability... Do you have any, sir? (LAUGHTER FROM CROWD) There's always the question as to whether or not you are, in fact, viable. GEORGE STEPHANOPOLOUS: What’s success for you in this campaign? RON PAUL: What's success? Well, to win, for one… STEPHANOPOLUS: That’s not going to happen. IOWA GOP CHAIR: With 16,860 Iowans voting, the winner of the 2011 Iowa Straw Poll is Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) BRETT BAIER: Michelle Bachmann was the winner. We have Ron Paul in second. Congressman Ron Paul was second. (VERY LOUD CHEERS FROM CROWD) BAIER: Now the question is… (CROWD CHANTS “RON PAUL!” “RON PAUL!” “RON PAUL!”) BAIER: Ron Paul in second.... CHUCK TODD (NBC): We have a new top tier. It's Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Michelle Bachmann. REPORTER (CBS): We have a new top-tier. The candidates are Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Bachmann. CHRIS WALLACE (FOX): We have a new top tier, at least for now, and they are Perry, Mitt Romney, and Bachmann. BAIER: I think that's fair to say. REPORTER: Several of the candidates are here today. We have live pictures of Ron Paul but we are talking about Sarah Palin and Rick Perry, two people not yet in the race, too. HOST: If you get video of Sarah Palin or get a soundbite, bring that back to us. You can hold the Ron Paul stuff. (CHUCKLES) ROGER SIMON (POLITICO): I find it odd for me to be a Ron Paul supporter, but he lost to Michelle Bachmann by 9/10th’s of one percentage point in a straw poll that isn’t supposed to pick winners but is supposed to tell us which way the wind is blowing. That’s as good as a win. So we had a tie for first. But where is he on the morning shows this morning? Where are all the stories analyzing what it means that Ron Paul essentially tied for first place at Ames. KURTZ: And the reason he's essentially being ignored is? SIMON: The media doesn't believe Ron Paul has a hoot in hell's chance of winning the Iowa caucuses, winning the Republican nomination, or winning the presidency. So we're going to ignore him. STEPHANIE MILLER: The one thing Donald Trump has ever been right about, is that he's unelectable. HOST: Is Ron Paul being ignored by the media? 97% of you said YES! 3% of you said no. CANDY CROWLEY: So the top two finishers were Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann, both of whom are among the worst-performing when you put them in a head-to- head against President Obama. CROWLEY: So do you -- I mean, is that how you all see it breaking down? There are now three people we think have a reasonable chance of winning both the nomination and a general election. And that is it's now down to Romney, Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann. CROWLEY: And in the end, Neil, electability -- You can say all you want about great visions for America... You can say all you want about great visions for America... You can say all you want about great visions for America... (CROWD CHANTS “RON PAUL!” “RON PAUL!” “RON PAUL!”) (CROWD CHANTS “RON PAUL!” “RON PAUL!”) (CROWD CHANTS “RON PAUL!” “RON PAUL!”) (CROWD CHANTS “END THE FED!” “END THE FED!”) (CROWD CHANTS “RON PAUL!” “RON PAUL!”) WOMAN: The winner of the California Straw Poll is Ron Paul! (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) CNN ANCHOR: Let’s talk about Ron Paul, because he just won another straw poll in California. He keeps winning straw polls, but I guess if history is an indication, it doesn’t mean much. (CONDESCENDING TONE) So you see, we ARE talking about Ron Paul. JUDGE NAPOLITANO: “Poll: Romney leads in New Hampshire. Huntsman in third. Perry in fourth.” Who’s in second?!? Why aren’t they talking about who is in second?!? JUAN WILLIAMS: Well, you know why. (Because it’s) Ron Paul. GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT: The winner of the Florida straw poll, with 37% of the vote, Herman Cain! (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) CHRIS WALLACE: And hello again from Fox News in Washington. There was big news in the Republican Presidential primary race, and no, it did not involve Chris Christie. A former long-shot parlayed a strong performance at the Fox debate and the Florida straw poll, jumping into the top-tier. FOX ANCHOR: It has happened yet again. Presidential hopeful Herman Cain had another strong showing among voters this week, taking second place at the value voters summit in Washington, winning 23% of the vote, 7% higher than Rick Santorum in third place, and holding a double-digit lead over Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann! MEGYN KELLY: It’s got to be somewhat frustrating for you to come in second and be as close as you were to winning in Iowa. Not to mention the polling that you’ve been doing, which is fairly good. To have this kind of treatment in the media, does it disturb you? RON PAUL: Not that it disturbs me… I don’t use the word frustrating because I think I anticipate it. I know how the system works. And I know what I’m trying to do, because it’s not like I’m just trying to win and get elected. I’m trying to change the course of history. And our history in this country hasn’t been good for the last 100 years. Whether it’s our drift into manage an empire, the destruction of our currency, the deficits that have been run up, the climax of the dollar-reserve standard. This is big stuff. And nobody else is addressing this. So, in spite of all the shortcomings of the reporting on this, I write it off a bit because they don’t have any idea about the significance of the monetary system and what’s going on with the Federal Reserve. But the people – grassroots America – are starting to wake up. Millions of people are reading about the Federal Reserve and understanding how they bail out their friends, create trillions of dollars, give a third of all that money they used in the bailout and give it to foreign banks. People are realizing this. Even though the media, generally speaking, they don’t understand it. They don’t ask me the right questions. And, if they do understand it, they don’t want to get the secret out on how the system that we have protects the special interests, the big corporations, the corporatism that runs our society.
