It was easy for the mainstream media as well as the new media to attack Ron Paul’s ideas. Chris Matthews is just the first lamestream media person who will attack Medina viciously.
And my prediction is once Gov Perry takes care of Kay Bailey Hutchison and there is a runoff between Perry and Medina, Perry will use his leftover millions to attack Medina. It will be just as easy to hurt Medina by simply emphasizing libertarian ideas: legalizing marijuana and other drugs, eliminating property taxes with large increase in the sales taxes as examples.
With my interaction with the Medina campaign, I am not sure they will be prepared for the Perry onslaught. It will certainly test the power of her grassroots support.
