Jamie Dupree Twitter (friendly) Battle (I think)Submitted by agonzo1 on Wed, 11/23/2011 - 21:32
If anyone follows DC insider @Jamiedupree he put out a "Debate report card"
where he stated that Dr. Paul "demonstrated his isolationistic feelings" which will prevent him from being a "mainstream" GOP.
I decided to tweet him in response, a simple tweet:
Non-intervention is no isolationism. Why don't you understand this?
He didn't tweet, me, but send me a message:
sorry, but refusing to get involved overseas is what isolationism is all about; "non-intervention" is just another term for that
So I respond:
@jamiedupree Non-intervention means respecting sovereignty, free trade with many, entangling alliances with nobody, as Jefferson noted
@jamiedupree @RonPaul doesn't "refuse" to get involved overseas, he doesn't cede power to the executive, you must respect the constitution
and he comes back:
jamiedupree: non-intervention=isolationism much like crocodile=alligator
@jamiedupree Sorry, that comparison isn't valid. #zoologyfail
and neither is your hair splitting between isolationsim and non-intervention #politicsfail
@jamiedupree where do you agree with @RonPaul ?
@jamiedupree Now is the time not to defend outdated treaties but to defend the American people- GWBush #RonPaul also wants to DEFEND the USA
then he kind of walks back the tough talk:
you misunderstand - I am a reporter - I don't agree with any of the candidates, I report on them
@jamiedupree thanks for ur time, but I feel you must report the difference between the two. esp since only 29% ID as GOP vs 38% Ind
So he kinda tripped himself up trying to speak analogy to a BS in Biology, lol, but seemed cordial, but is pushing the "isolationist" mantra, maybe he realizes it now, but i dont think he'd ever change his "reporting" tactic.
