Among GOP hopefuls, only Ron Paul & Gingrich Comment on Fast & Furious scandal

Operation Fast and Furious hasn’t come up during a debate yet, nor has reform of the Justice Department. Many of the candidates have not even commented on Fast and Furious. After an extensive search, The Daily Caller only found two candidates who have: Congressman Ron Paul and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich’s comments on Fast and Furious came during a speech in early May to the National Rifle Association. “[The administration’s] total mismanagement of the sting into Mexico, the Obama administration is the most consistently anti-gun administration we have ever seen,” Gingrich said.

Paul’s comments came via a campaign statement in mid-June. “The ATF has a long history of abusing our Second Amendment rights, so I was glad to see Congressman Issa demanding answers on the Project ‘Gunwalker’ scandal,” Paul said. “My hope is that the recent hearing will further expose the ATF’s and Attorney General Eric Holder’s assaults on law-abiding gun owners, and more people will start questioning the need for unconstitutional agencies like the ATF that exist solely to infringe on American citizens’ God-given right to keep and bear arms.”

American citizens’ God-given right to keep and bear arms.”

Never occurred to me that was a GOD-GIVEN right.
Wow, Dr. Paul, you never cease to educate and amaze me.
Thanks for the catch, bobbyw24

I don't trust Newt; he wants to be LBJ to Dr. Paul's JFK...!

I don't trust Newt. I just don't. He's a cunning devil who knows his Presidential bid is a bloated corpse. Only Hannity holds out hope for a Newt presidency.

With all this coziness going on, recognising Dr. Paul, copying his stance on the Fed, and so on, I fear he might position himself as a VP for the Dr., someone acceptable to the old-time neocon hardliners of the GOP.

My bothersome fear is that Newt may try to be LBJ to Dr. Paul's JFK...

which would satisfy Cheney, Rove, and Petraeus!

On the Same Page: Jon Stewart

Interview with Jon Stewart on the same page:

"On the whole debt-ceiling thing, you can blame the intransigence of Tea Party Republicans all you want, but Democrats had a chance to pass a budget before they lost in the midterm election," the Daily Show host said in an extensive interview. "They didn’t do it because they were afraid that those votes would cost them the House. Well, how’d that work out? They had the ability to avoid the entire fucking thing. And they didn’t do it out of cowardice. So I have a hard time mustering sympathy for the argument that a couple of Tea Partiers took Congress hostage. "

He also said,
“I love the fact that none of them talk about Ron Paul,” he said. “I don’t understand how a guy with consistent grass-roots support at the level he has is not a part of the conversation."

Between the two, I wonder who he'd vote for?

They Actually "Investigated"

Nice that they performed an Internet search.

I guess the statist candidates don't want to say bad things about the state.
