The guy sitting in the middle

asked a really good question about how the neo-con view on foreign policy has permeated its way into mainstream republican thinking over the past decade and I wish Dr Paul would have directly answered it. A good answer to that would have gone a long way to showing that republicans used to be against foreign interventionism. I mean the American people elected Republicans to end Korea and Vietnam, two wars that Democrats got us into along with WWI. Regean withdrew from Beirut after the attack on the Marine Barracks and later said the Middle East is basically impossible to figure out and we should leave it alone. Dr Paul made great points and this is one of his best interviews by far but I think he dropped the ball a little but by not directly answering that question.

I have to return some videotapes...

winning

Dr Paul's new campaign slogan should say something about being able to completely fix the economy in a single year. That would get some attention...

libertarianism has nothing to do with The Tea Party, it is simply one of our vehicles to liberty, and if that vehicle breaks down, we have the money to purchase another vehicle. That "money" comes in the form of truth, and spite for misplaced authority.

looks like he's got a cold

get well soon, doc! that's crazy to see 3 people sitting with Ron Paul on a news show basically agreeing with him and pointing out that he was right about this stuff for years and years when almost nobody else was.

I love how Ron Paul sniffs/picks his nose

It's so cute/adorable

damn polls~~~it's called~~PROPAGANDA

Think about it. If MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNBC, FOXNEWS had broadcast RON winning the CALIFORNIA STRAW POLL>, with enthusisasm & giddiness, don't you think he'd have overtaken Herman Cain? I mean, really, winning CALIFORNIA is a BIG FRIGGIN' DEAL, you know?

I mean, really, who of the Rinos really wants to vote for Herman Cain...not.

But, if the EVIL WORLD ELITES want to push Herman Cain, bring it on!

Can't WAIT till Ron wins Iowa!

...and SHUTS THESE "poll results" down once and for ALL!

Hear that, Frank L?

BOB IS JUST

THAT OLD GUY WHO REALLY BELIEVE IN OLD IDEAS AND IS CLOSED TO DIFFERENT THOUGHTS AND DIFFERENT IDEAS. HE IS A STUBBORN OLD MAN WHO LIKE HIS WHISKEY WITH TWO ICE CUBES. IF THERE 3 ICE CUBES HELL START CAUSING A FIT. HE IS A MAN WHO CHOOSES NOT TO UNDERSTAND AND CHOOSES TO CONTINUE TO STAY STUPID. BOB GET SOME HELP MY FRIEND. ON THE OTHER HAND ...THIS WAS A GREAT AND I MEAN GREAT INTERVIEW FOR RON PAUL. DONT YOU JUST LOVE THE DR. IM ALMOST SICK TO MY STUMACH WHEN THEY MAKE UP LIES TO KEEP OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMAN IN THESE DIFFERENT COUNTRIES TO FIGHT HORRIBLE NONSENSE WARS IN WHICH WE HAVE NO VOTED FOR. IT JUST DISGUSTING. BUT DONT WORRY RON PAUL WILL SAVE THE WORLD. 2012 RON PAUL PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATE OF AMERICA.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Victorious

Ron Paul is winning

RP: "...I'm attacking the status quo like never before...I'm challenging the whole banking system, the military industrial complex, the welfare state, our foreign policy..."

His opponents now must agree with Ron Paul's position on Audit the FED or they cannot gain the nomination.

Support Ron Paul's bills to Audit the FED and on Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition.

Now you can send a letter to your member of congress online here---let's get these bills passed!

Morning Joe is the only show

Morning Joe is the only show on MSNBC that treats Ron Paul with respect. The rest of the MSNBC shows are a cheering squad for Obama.

not true

Dylan Rattigan is on MSNBC.

Wow! Bob Woodward is a

Wow! Bob Woodward is a neo-con, yeah lets stay in Afghanistan forever.

damn polls

great interview that is nullified by fake polls. They show the poll that is most damaging to RP. They play nice to him because of his growing popularity and back-stab with the worst poll. Fighting off that perception is paramount. The people will always fall into the well, he's a great guy, he has great policies but "NOBODY" will vote for him. You people need to figure out a way to combat that perception and combat those damn polls which are killing the momentum. The more momentum he has the LOWER poll numbers they will present.

Agreed...

That poll was absurd... very disingenuous. While they're talking about his national support they show a random poll from some little college in Connecticut.

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.

wow !

a nice interview for a change, so refreshing.
thanks to the moderators/anchors on this show !!

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGDisyWkIBM

I sense of appreciation of the policies/plan of Ron Paul !!

I enjoyed this segment. I get the feeling here that some Non-Paul folks are starting to realize what a serious crisis our country is in. And that people like Cain and Romney are not talking real solutions. I take this as positive. I continue to believe the economy is reacting to the sums on Capitol Hill and more and more will appreciate and support Dr. Paul

The one guy in the back here had to get is Obama pre-disposition, but Joe keeps the focus on Paul and the fact he predicted the mess ACCURATELY.

Also I appreciated and enjoyed when Paul told the that the lack of media coverage was that "I challenge the status quo" - Way to go Ron !! The guy in the back looked a little upset.

A lot of this before the primaries will really help our efforts !!

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

after watching this a couple of times

and knowing how Ron Paul has been negatively treated by this station in the past, I am wondering if the talk mentioned at Chris Mathew's dinner party the previous evening, didn't include a plan to attempt to get Ron Paul to use the word austerity so they would be able to use it against him in the media. Thankfully Ron Paul said something entirely different than what I feel they were hoping he would say. The host of this show has shown himself in the past, not to be trustworthy on more than one occasion, some times he will seem like he is a big fan of Ron Paul, then turn around and say something very negative. Wasn't it recently where he claimed all of the GOP candidates were clowns, never excluding Ron Paul from his statement? I think Dr. Paul did a wonderful job of getting his message out while avoiding any traps these people may have put out, though I think they will keep trying.

At 11:51 Dr. Paul...

At 11:51 Dr. Paul should have been more specific. He should have said:

Now Joe, I can give you a great example that should hit close to home. MSNBC I would guess is a little related to NBC, wouldn't you say? It's obvious GE is the parent company of this station and the guarantor of your pay check Joe. GE is HEAVILY subsidized by the EPA (through green products subsidies) and the military industrial complex (through weapons contracts). Joe, look me in the eye and tell me GE doesn't fear a Ron Paul administration because they're on the dole. It is in their interest to see me defeated and the ideas of liberty crushed. I bet as I speak they're flashing some irrelevant poll that has me in single digits. I tell you what Joe...you have been basically saying the exact same thing as me. I could use your endorsement right here, right now. It's going to take people like you stepping up to bat for liberty and the liberty message if we're going to break free from out of control government and media manipulation. Will you support me for President?

Why is he alone?

Why is Ron Paul alone at these interviews he needs to start bringing Tom Woods, Peter Shift, or someone from the cato institute.

This is Bullshit, Im tired of seeing him having too fight off multiple people.

Я Ξ √ Ω L U T ↑ ☼ N 2012!

Its Not A Fair Fight...They Need More Fire Power

He doesn't need help, they do and lots of it...Ha!

thats half true

Good point from our perspective. But we also need to convince others that he is right. Yeah, He kicks the crap out of them if you understand what he is talking about. IF you don't I'm just saying it would be nice to have more fire power.

or how about they get rid of the round table and do more face to face debate and keeping it real.

Я Ξ √ Ω L U T ↑ ☼ N 2012!

You know...

it's times like this that I wonder why don't I create a poll showing Ron Paul leading every other candidate by 40 percent or more.

I mean what the hell is a QuinniPiac? Where do they come up with these names?

This just in! Latest QuikyMart shows Ron Paul is the leading GOP candidate with a clear 51%

Back to you Bob

The Libertarian Party, irrelevant since 1971.

Quinnipiac is a college in

Quinnipiac is a college in Hamden Connecticut. My company makes the locks for the polling center

right on

this was awesome. Kept it simple with easily understandable for the masses.

TWICE they put up the POLL results to COVER RON'S FACE

up.......just when he was saying something REALLY SIGNIFICANT like....

1. Winning the CALIFORNIA STRAW POLL

2. The COUNTRY HAS CHANGED~~and "BERNANKE is ON THE DEFENSIVE NOW"...

WHAT A PLOY.......who does MSNBC think they are kidding? They are SO TRANSPARENT!!

so many bombs were dropped here...

JS: "Why is that?" (no media coverage)

RP:"...I'm attacking the status quo like never before... they're not going to give me a boost because
I'm chalenging the whole banking system, the military industrial complex, the welfare state, our foreign policy..."

Wow!

I enjoyed seeing Ron Paul getting his long-overdue "props"!! Fantastic show...

O.P.O.G.G. - Fighting the attempted devolution of the rEVOLution
Ron Paul 2012...and beyond
BAN ELECTRONIC VOTING!!

We have to really encourage People...

To do their homework on ALL Future elections...and to remember that polls are VOIDFUL LIES.

The result of an election is THE ONLY basis on what should be expected.

No one can "Predict" the future of FREEDOM OF CHOICE.

But what Must be done Is Homework on Every single Name and Issue voted on...

We need to encourage People to Do their Homework on Who is Running and What they have voted on - with the issues at hand.

NEVER VOTE ON -(A STRAIGHT ONE SIDED TICKET BLINDLY)...Vote Individuals Not Tickets.

This coming Primary is very important...

LIBERTY OR DEATH!!!

Bob Woodward wrote two books that republicans should read.

.... And I am NOT talking about All the President's Men (Watergate) The one Veil The Secret Wars of the CIA. This will give you look at 12 off the books wars and really puts a light on some of the policies of Reagan/Bush. It really will put a damper on the Reagan myth. Most people understand the "Evil Empire" neo-con propaganda but miss understand the economic pressure on the Soviets applied by War and Political unrest (the Pope was a big part). More importantly the Casey,Bush and CIA heads to present making the wars religious whether anti Caliph or Anti-Catholic (San Salvador, Nicaragua). Political rhetoric with real world tremendous arms testing countries and deep lack of understanding for profit war issues. Wars with Drugs, wars and religious division wars (Northern Ireland, Middle East, South America)... Viel makes you think....

Then there one of the worst book written Maestro about Greenspan... I swear this was Ghost written by Andrea Mitchel to proclaim the "Maestro" Instead of what we now understand as the "Master of Disaster".

As most readers on this sight understand how "Ideas work" from our mises.org education these books offer one good and one bad example.

Ron your Ideas are working despite the oligopolistic press and Media Conglomerates promoting the Buffet, Welsh, Murdock Neo-Con doctrine of warfare welfare divisiveness.. Now start promoting the "True Buffet doctrine"

Howard Buffet

On the Korean War

Speaking on the floor of Congress, he said of military interventionism that,
“ Even if it were desirable, America is not strong enough to police the world by military force. If that attempt is made, the blessings of liberty will be replaced by coercion and tyranny at home. Our Christian ideals cannot be exported to other lands by dollars and guns. Persuasion and example are the methods taught be the Carpenter of Nazareth, and if we believe in Christianity we should try to advance our ideals by his methods. We cannot practice might and force abroad and retain freedom at home. We cannot talk world cooperation and practice power politics."

RON YOU ARE RIGHT ON THE FED AND RIGHT ON INTERVENTIONISM.

Peace... Nice response on Cain... It is nice to see some families father and son's take same moral and legal stands..

RON IS A CLASS ACT..

That's the second time this

That's the second time this week I've seen a lengthy media segment that's got positive things to say at length for Ron Paul. Give me another 58 interviews like that and we'll see the average GOP voter start supporting Paul.

We're getting somewhere

It definitely wasn't like this in 2007.
