wow Ron looked

good next to these 4 a holes

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Paul Ruled

No ifs, ands or buts.

This is the interview that the MSM doesn't want people to see.

Dr. Paul was the only one of the five that looked comfortable. The others looked nervous.

THIS Ron Paul will win.

(I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken)

yeah and i could imagine the

yeah and i could imagine the shock when RP said that inflation is 9% and the guy on his right said whoa! it's not it's 3% percent. And RP has this grin on his face and told him "have you've gone shopping this days?" and everyone just laugh which i suppose is a reaction that what RP is talkin about is true. This is one of his greatest interview yet!

I am so proud of Ron Paul. He owns these guys,...

but seeing Ron Paul right next to Krauthammer gives me the creeps.

Holy Macaroni...

with this sublime interview Dr. Ron Paul is one BIG step closer to winning GOP nomination!

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

I, for one

thoroughly enjoyed watching this. They asked him plenty of gotcha questions, and yet didn't butt in on him and allowed him to make his points properly. Paul could deliver better, but I still believe his less-smooth way of talking makes him sound more like a regular guy, perhaps gaining trust.

The pressure is working everyone, keep it up!

"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" - Patrick Henry

Ron's supporters....

Both Hannity and Baier ask the Congressman to "tell your supporters"........and Ron just laughs.........smiles.......

NEWSFLASH - Ron Paul does not TELL his supporters what to do.
If this dude wants to get a positive experience from the Revolution all he has to do is -
Turn his face into the camera
Knock off the smirky smile
Show some respect, act like a professional
And say the following - "Ron Paul is electable"

i smell bribery here. we will

i smell bribery here. we will continue to cover you fairly but please stop ur supporters from emailing, calling and pestering us to tell the truth and cover w fairness and be unbiased? to me in my opinion thats the message they want to come accross. RP FTW!

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

yes, bribery indeed

That was precisely my impression. I hadn't thought of that word to describe it but it is essentially accurate. Why does Bret want us to be "told" anything? SHOW US, Bret. We don't need any more sunshine blown up our Krauthammers by you professional spinmeisters -- or by Dr. Paul or anyone else, for that matter.

As for Bret's little list of stats... that might show the number of appearances, but that only covers a very tiny sliver of the 24/7 programming. What about the rest of the time? What are they saying and suggesting when Paul isn't on? Do they treat him and us fairly during those times? And what about the nature of those appearances and the questions asked, the demeanor of the hosts, etc.?

Those stats don't tell anything like the whole story, and we know it regardless of whether or not Ron wants to say it.

All that said... if they act like this from here on out, I'll be (grudgingly) satisfied, at least where his guest appearances are concerned. They gave him solid, if somewhat annoying, questions, and then gave him time to respond, and even nodded their heads a fair amount to some of his answers. What I still want to see, though, is them acting like he's a legitimate candidate for the other 99.8% of the time they are on the air. No more "you can hold the Ron Paul stuff, heheh" behavior.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

He was amazing.

Give the man more than 30 seconds to give an answer and he'll win you over in a heartbeat.

Best Interview Yet...Hands down

Best Interview Yet...Hands down

Paul rocked it.

Lot's of negativity in this thread. Go to Fox and watch the full video; it is much better than the above YouTube version. Paul rocked it.

I never knew Krauthammer was into meth and heroin.

Paul ante portas.

The more and more I listen to

The more and more I listen to this man speak the more valid my support of him becomes. One note however; Dr. Paul generally tends to skip words when speaking and his positions on certain issues need further clarification. When I first discovered him, it was not his words that drew me to him, but rather, a curiosity to research more about him. Dr. Paul may be charismatic, but he needs to formulate his thoughts and sentence structure a little better if he wants the uninformed public to take him seriously. I hope I won't get ostracized for saying that, I, like the rest of us hope his poll numbers will continue to rise. Dr. Paul is intelligent, we all know this...I just wished he is more eloquent and assertive in his responses to criticisms. RP 2012!

He is not

KRautwhatever thinks if he can get crack legalized he may get by with importing little Asian boys or something.....

He does not understand the concept of "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed" —

Remember

Ron Paul is like a great iceberg. The 15% that the MSM reports is what they see, what the pollsters who manipulate their data pool report. The bulk of our mass is present and will show itself in IOWA shortly. I wouldn't have it any other way at this point. If Paul was posting 30% right now, there wouldn't be a media blackout, there'd be a media assault while the CIA drew up plans to quite his message of liberty.

You know it's true, we all feel it. Even when a random article pops up on the Washington Post or Yahoo News, 90% of the thousands of comments below the articles are Ron Paul supporters. Either we're simply a tireless and vocal 15% or our numbers are greater than we're led to believe.

It's my hunch that these national polls are skewed/manipulated... it's not difficult for competent statisticians to accomplish. Put away the long face because brushfires of freedom are burning in the hearts of man.

Smooth Sailing from here on

RP gives good interviews, he is not as good in debates. This is because his answers require more than 30-60 second soundbites. But in interviews he is more relaxed and doesn't feel pressured as much he has a little more time to explain his ideas. There are no debates for a while now and they are inviting him on for interviews. I think this will only help him going forward into January. I think he can relax a bite and tell it like it is. He's got his plan laid out for people to see he means business, and he can lay out all of it's detail with reasoning. I think it's somewhat smooth sailing from here on out. It may be to soon to start dreaming, but it looks like the freedom we're all fighting for is coming our way.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

MODS, 2nd call for better quality embed

.

SteveMT's picture

Thanks for these great links.

Appreciated.

Give FOX page the hits

Show them a big hit count on this report, thx

Plus embeded video quality sucks, and doesn't drive traffic

If Fox doesn't get traffic it gives them less incentive to have Ron Paul on in the future.

I made a topic with the direct links earlier: http://www.dailypaul.com/184853/is-this-the-age-of-ron-paul

Thank you for starting this

I commented same, over there.

Pretty Interview - Need more RP supporters !

This interview puts good topics on the table, and allows Paul to answer them in his own time and gets him in front of new people.

All this is so good for the campaign, since the debates are NOT working for the campaign - bad format and no screen time. There is some counter arguments but they are handled in true Paul fashion, and

My only criticism is that some less intelligent watchers may not understand Paul, we heard some pretty dumb folks lately. Highlights -
Federal Reserve Director, Threat of Waterway and National Security and Taxes Pt 1.
Israel Pt 2.

I think Fox has finally clued in on that "less taxes FORCES a smaller government" regardless of the Senate and House posturing.

The poll numbers in Pt 3 seem disturbing, we need more supporters !!

I do see DP and RP2012.com traffic is going up at least 2% a week though.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

I thought that was a great

I thought that was a great interview and that they were begrudgingly quite respectful.

"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA

Very sorry I didn't get to see what they did on TV

I thought this was an excellent interview. People really got to see Ron Paul as a human with a sense of humor which doesn't come across in other venues. I think people will be impressed.

Amendment: okay I watched the TV version (maybe there's more than one)but it was very different from the one I watched earlier on the internet. The TV version had the feel of a real hit piece. What would be good for is if someone put them side by side for all to see.

For a minute there...

...I thought Krauthammer's head would explode. He clearly doesn't like Dr. Paul. I wonder why :-)

Nice at least they let him talk and explain

instead of interrupting etc. I am sure the neocon Krauthammer was hating though.

Try this for the post show "online" segment.
