Some more notes on Ron Paul's treachery and contempt for fellow GOP members

Let's begin by noting the Paul cultists hanging out at the Occupy protests. In National Review, they tell:
I hear many names bandied about in Zuccotti Park, and not just at the fringes. Among the most popular are Karl Marx, Hugo Chávez, Michael Moore, Paul Ehrlich, and Dennis Kucinich. But today I heard a less predictable one spoken more widely: Ron Paul.

There are three key reasons for this, I think. The first is a good old marriage of convenience, the same sort of unholy alliance as arose in the early 20th century when Baptists and bootleggers came together to argue for the prohibition of alcohol in America. You see, Ron Paul is angry, too, and he wants to “restore” America to its old ways. The majority of Paul’s policy positions may be radically different, but much of his rhetoric is in line with Occupy Wall Street’s, particularly his anti-Hamiltonian conviction that the banks have callously denatured the United States. For many, this alone is enough to make him an ally.
He certainly hasn't slammed the violent, abusive behavior they descended into as the weeks passed and OWS turned out to be quite the horrific charade it's become. If he has publicly condemned them, as Newt Gingrich has, I have yet to hear of it.

Now for another troubling development: recently, he indicated that if he's not elected the candidate for president, he won't support the GOP candidate who is, unless, in his words, they believe in everything he does (H/T: Hot Air). Firstly, that is simply disgraceful that he would go into this next race only for himself and act so nigh-selfish. It's a very poor example for a politician, and I agree with the FOX contributors who suggested Paul be taken out of the GOP debates if that's how he's going to behave.

Now, as the following news on Town Hall reports, he's hinted that he won't rule out a third-party run. Well of all the cheap nerve! On the one hand, you'd think this would be a blessing for the GOP not to have such a frightful wacko tarnishing their HQ any longer. On the other hand, if he does decide to go that route, it certainly could spell trouble for the GOP, as he could take away votes. If this happens, he'll really have pulled an act of betrayal, and quite likely he won't apologize for it either.

The funny thing is how he's claiming the MSM doesn't give him much attention. Pardon me? The New York Times (via Hot Air Headlines) was one of a couple of MSM outlets that's been lavishing attention upon him lately because they know he's a most divisive candidate who could cause serious problems in the GOP base even if he is elected candidate, and this posting on Red State is certainly worth pondering as to what damage he could do. And he thinks he doesn't get attention? Good grief.

The GOP should have distanced themselves from him long ago, given how poorly he ultimate acts around them and makes himself a major embarrassment within their ranks.
