.Because there are real doubts that presumed
GOP nominee Mitt Romney has
what it takes to displace the current
White House occupant in the general
election, there are some Republicans who have a
message for the delegates to the forthcoming GOP
National Convention: Dump Romney and nominate
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).
In stark contrast to outspoken populist Paul,
whose integrity is undoubted, whose finances and
business affairs are an open book and whose political
message has been consistent, Romney can’t
shake the image of being an out-of-touch elitist
who flip-flops on the issues and whose business
affairs seem sordid and un-American.
Paul supporters are also conscious of the danger
a Romney presidency would pose to the future
of the burgeoning “Ron Paul movement” (RPM)
that emerged during the past four years.
As president, Romney would be in absolute control
of the Republican Party national apparatus
and would assuredly do everything in his power to
quash any efforts by the RPM to expand its influence
in GOP ranks. Romney is a fervent globalist
whose allies in high places despise and fear the nationalist,
non-interventionist sentiments of Paul
and his supporters.
Four — or eight — years of a Romney presidency
would put the kibosh on efforts by the RPM to reform the
GOP from within and bend the party away
from the New World Order orientation of Romney
and the nest of discredited Bush-era neo-conservatives
who are back again and now running Romney.
But Paul’s supporters have hopes of displacing
Romney — even at this last minute — in Paul’s favor.
A lot of Americans are not dazzled by the fact
that Romney has been a business success, particularly
since his monetary triumph through his Bain & Company operation came through shutting
down American corporations, looting their assets
and “outsourcing” American workers’ jobs overseas.
Even conservative Texas Gov. Rick Perry described
Romney as a “vulture capitalist.”
Romney has also been dogged by questions arising
from his refusal to release anything other than
only a very limited number of his recent income
tax returns. Romney is known to have stashed
money in overseas bank accounts. This has raised
further concerns, causing some to wonder if Romney
has other unreported sources of income.
That the Obama Justice Department is waging
a quiet but aggressive inquiry into Americans who
have hidden money in Israeli banks — including
Bank Leumi (control of which was purchased by a
consortium of Jewish financiers who use GOP former
Vice President Dan Quayle as their front man) —
has led to speculation the inquiry is looking
for further evidence of financial shenanigans by
Romney stemming from his Israeli connections.
A longtime friend and former business associate
of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
Romney installed an Israeli woman with high-level
Israeli military and intelligence connections, Orit
Gadiesh, as chair of Bain & Company, the entity at
the center of the controversy surrounding Romney’s
wheeling and dealing.
What remains to be seen surrounding Romney’s
mysterious ventures is enough to make victory-minded
Republicans uneasy. That’s why supporters
of Paul urge the GOP to dump Romney and
pick the one GOP contender who can unquestionably
draw clear lines of demarcation between himself
and the Democratic incumbent — and win the
presidency on 2012.
