Ron Paul's just past his apex moment.

Ron Paul may start to see the end of his surge.  Rick Perry called conservatives heartless and that was the start of his popularity slide (along with weak debate performances ensuring he wouldn't sustain his opening momentum).  Now Ron Paul goes after conservative hawks calling their concerns over a nuclear Iran fear mongering.

Via ABC:
I don’t believe people are going to come over here and commit suicide to prove that we’re rich and free. They don’t do that. They come because they’re angry at us... 
But sometimes it seems out of control and unreasonable, because the other argument is maybe there’s people in our country that would like to get the oil. Could that possibly be it? It seems like we go into countries more when they have oil...
Iran is not a physical threat to us. They do not have capabilities. The stories you might hear about them being on the verge of a nuclear weapon is not true by our CIA and by the United Nations they are not on the verge of it.
ABC goes on to note;
The International Atomic Energy Agency or IAEA released a report last month that expressed “serious concerns” that Iran is developing a “nuclear explosive device.’
Those positions of Paul on foreign policy will be his undoing. I think his popularity growth might will see a decline over the coming 6 to 8 weeks.
