Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Sunday he hoped voters attracted to Herman Cain's "independent mindedness" would take a second look at his presidential campaign with Cain now out of the race.
"We’re paying a lot of attention of that, because obviously they’re going to go somewhere," he said on CNN's "State of the Union." "I’m optimistic that we’ll pick up some votes from there."
"We continue to do what we’re doing. We’ve had the flavors of the month up and down so far in this campaign. I like to think of myself as the flavor of the decade," he said.
Hat tip: Memeorandum
Over at the Ron Paul campaign blog Pauliticker with Jack Hunter, Jack says:
That’s a great line, and it’s true! Trump, Cain, Bachmann, Perry, back to Cain, Gingrich–the sporadic popularity of each represents a GOP base that consistently desires a strong candidate, yet continues to find inconsistency in each.
There is one glaring exception to this GOP 2012 race rule. Ron Paul is consistency personified–in his philosophy, integrity and core beliefs. In fact, to give Ron Paul a mere “decade” would be to sell him short. More like ”flavor of the millennium.”
Good to see Ron shedding his inhuman level of humility and unabashedly telling the voters why he'd be their best pick for president... it's not arrogant because it's not for himself. Helping the voters to see why they should vote for Ron Paul is the best favor he could possibly do for them.
