Talking Heads, Mainstream Media Pushing Paul/Romney Alliance Conspiracy

It’s pretty funny because I saw a blurb yesterday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” about a possible “relationship” between Mitt “Mittens” Romney and Ron Paul and thought to myself, what a load of CRAP!

Establishment floated talking points are latest effort to smear Paul’s campaign

When The mainstream media devotes coverage to Ron Paul at any length, you can take it to the bank that it is an attempt to smear Paul’s campaign. That is why the latest obsession with the theory that Paul and Romney have formed an alliance, almost certainly represents such an effort.

The notion that Paul has cut some form of deal, either for himself or for his son Rand, to be a part of a Romney led GOP ticket is now being heavily pushed by everyone from MSNBC to Rush Limbaugh – and it’s as if they are reading off the same script.

As former Ron Paul staffer Lew Rockwell told the Alex Jones show yesterday, it is becoming ever more clear that talk of a Paul/Romney alliance is part of the establishment’s latest effort to de-rail Paul’s presidential campaign, and paint him up as a sell out, as he continues to pick up armies of delegates under the radar.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe has been heavily covering the alliance theory, with Joe Scarborough seemingly convinced Paul has done a deal with Romney:

“The thing that went unspoken but everybody knows, and that is that Mitt Romney and Ron Paul have formed an alliance,” Scarborough said on Thursday’s Morning Joe.

“It is such an obvious alliance that Mitt Romney would do well to just come out and admit it. I don’t know what he’s promised Ron Paul. I don’t know if Ron Paul is hoping that his son gets in the administration. But let’s just be really honest here — for all people for Ron Paul to form an alliance with in the Republican Party, to pick out Mitt Romney is really bizarre.” Scarborough added, before his guests suggested that Ron Paul has been acting as Romney’s “attack dog” for a long time.

“I mean, he’s been throwing out daisy cutters, clearing the way for Mitt Romney all along.” said Daily Beast columnist Mark McKinnon. “And you know, it’s a wink and a nod and never any kind of spoken deals on these sorts of things, but it’s pretty clear what’s going on. And he’s been the fullback, blocking in front of Romney this whole time.”

Scarborough picked up the alliance conspiracy again on today’s Morning Joe, telling viewers “It certainly seems like a deal’s been struck, because he’s not only chopping Santorum up into little pieces in these debates, he did it in past debates against Newt and other front-runners, leaving Mitt completely out of it,”

Scarborough’s guest, Tim Pawlenty, now national co-chair for Romney’s campaign, denied that there was any deal. “I know Mitt and I know Ron Paul, I really don’t believe there’s any deal between [them]. Think about Ron Paul cutting a deal as an insider to get some political favors,” said Pawlenty. “Probably the last person to ‘cut a back room deal’ in American politics would be Ron Paul.”
