Ron Paul revolution follows Mitt Romney to Gdansk Poland, People Chanting Obama, Obama.
#Romneyshambles: Mitt Romney’s Polish trip was met with Ron Paul supporters, Buzzfeed reports. LMAO! Romney’s public appearance in Gdansk was greeted by Ron Paul supporters as evidenced from Twitter. Follow this Twitter URL. This is an embarrassment to America. Not just to the Republicans or Democrats. It’s been a long time since a presidential candidate has been derided in such a manner. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were right. Mitt Romney is the worst candidate to go up against Obama in the elections. He’s imploding all on his own.
Poland is one of many countries outside the U.S. that, despite never having Paul on any ballots, have Ron Paul contingents. The main website, RonPaul.pl, includes information about Ron Paul’s campaign, primary dates, even the current time in Texas, where Paul is from. The banner: “Kim jest Ron Paul?” (“Who is Ron Paul?”)
The group has garnered 2,000 likes on Facebook. Today won’t be the last we see of them: tomorrow, when Romney will be in Warsaw, there will be a planned demonstration outside his event. source: Buzzfeed
So, no matter which country he visited on his overseas trip, Romney has managed to piss someone off. What a wimp.
[Romney’s] speech on the “values of liberty” at Warsaw University on Tuesday is expected to seek to rekindle the flames of US cold war righteousness by featuring a strong attack on Russia and President Vladimir Putin’s rollback of democratic gains, while also criticising the US president, Barack Obama, for allegedly sacrificing the interests and security of central European democracy in favour of realpolitik with the Kremlin.
Romney has previously described Russia as America’s “No 1 geopolitical foe”, in contrast with Obama, who has sought to press “the reset button” in relations with Moscow. Source: Guardian
Here’s the reaction on Twitter:
