People who don't like Ron's

People who don't like Ron's foreign policy either don't believe that we kill innocent people or just don't care- or they believe that God created the Earth on 9/11. They won't come around from logical argument- their emotions and humanity have to come to surface.

Overall it was a good interview, but...

...when he gets softball foreign policy questions, like that that thrown by Neal, he needs to take every opportunity to further explain his foreign policy stances. That's the only thing holding most of the Republican base from supporting Dr. Paul. It's painful to hear people say they agree with almost everything he says, but foreign policy is the deal breaker. If Dr.Paul could get over that hump, he'd have a much clearer path to the WH. Isn't there some ad campaign that can help that, aside from the ad illustrating veterans' support for him?

Agree with you about the FP

Have people say or write the same thing about his Foreign Policy. All he has to do is say something along the lines that if someone attacks us, he will annihilate them. People get the impression he just wants to make friends with supposed enemies. We can, but he has to let them know he means business when it comes to protecting the United States.

Boortz interviews Ron Paul

YouTube- search engine> infoman665,
and see what I pointed out about Neil Boortz after the
Aime's Iowa debates.Then compare it to this interview
on the dailypaul.com
Very clear to me that Boortz would be shouting from the
Roof tops if his Fed buddy Herman Cain was in Ron Paul's consistent ratings and polls.

Neal Boortz has been anti-Ron Paul until recently, I think we

should learn from this turn around that it's best to never antagonize anyone (particularly anyone with an audience) by sending them hate mail, etc. We need everyone to support Paul even if it takes them awhile. Please, those who may be inclined otherwise, be civil and respectful in dealing with those who don't support Ron Paul (and patient--all of us had to come around from somewhere!)

your'e right, but...

if these people are open-minded enough to actually comprehend the truth when they hear it, then they will surely feel the need to repent for their incredible ignorance. This isn't a call for antagonism, but take Glenn Beck for instance. Two years ago, it seemed the man had stumbled upon the truth and found enlightenment. But since then, he dug his heels back in to neoconservatism. Love of the military is an conservative Americans backstop against seeing the US government for what it is.

It's a matter of whether or not an individual can bring themselves to see the US government as a serial bad actor. Our whole lives, we are brought up to believe in the glory of the great American state (and see ourselves as one with it). There's a thin veneer, but if you are incapable of breaking through it, then Ron Paul will seem crazy to you.

surprised and suspicious

i'm very surprised that boortz was willing to give dr. paul time on his show because boortz has been herman cain's head cheerleader. i wonder what is boortz's actual motive?

nr

oh, that was really good.

oh, that was really good.

It may have been a "fair"

It may have been a "fair" interview, but Ron Paul needs a challenging interview to really get his message clear.

From what I can tell, Ron Paul is up to answering anything that is thrown at him, so I would like to see an hour or two long interview that is focused only on foreign affairs where the interviewer asks questions from every possible angle ... just as long as he is given proper time to answer.

I know no other candidate is questioned very deeply on their views, but Ron Paul is taking a track that is difficult for many to follow. We could then take that interview and summarize it into a 5 or 10 minute speach.

Having said that, I would like to see a Tom Woods type interviwer to question Newt for an hour or two on his foreign policy views.

If there is a Ron Paul supporter that is capable of doing such an interview with Ron Paul, then that would be good enough.

This the first time listening to Mr. Boortz...

Neil seemed likable and genuine...but, i don't really know him that well yet.

He is not AT ALL. If you

He is not AT ALL. If you listen to his show long enough you will find out he is about as arrogant and know it all as Bill O'Reilley. In fact the two despise each other because they are so much alike.

"Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people's brains and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead" Arundhat Roy

My sincere wish for you...

I hope you do not waste much time listening to him. I have wasted enough for both of us, and life is too short to waste it on welfare queens like Boortz. The investment might leave you with an impression of likability (that would be a matter of taste, I suppose) but "genuine" is not a word I would associate with him. "Subtle agenda driven" would be the phrase that fits best.

Update

Jamie Dupree and Boortz chat about 30 minutes after Paul's interview and say that he "has no chance."

No matter how fair the interview was, Boortz is still on that unelectable bandwagon.

Jamie Dupree....

http://www.dailypaul.com/188912/jamie-dupree-twitter-friendl...

He doesn't know what he's talking about, or he's intentionally misrepresenting Ron Paul...probably the latter

https://twitter.com/#!/Agonzo1

Jamie is as straight down the middle as it gets.

Jamie Dupree has been very fair in his reporting of Paul. Just because he says one bad thing ( that wasn't even that bad) there is no need to trash him.

Which is where I started listening

and got more of the "not electable" talk. However, Jamie did say that the more he looks into Ron Paul and the more he hears Ron Paul the more he likes him.

Now I've listened to the actual interview and agree that it was a great one!

awesome..

great interview. Boortz was really fair.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Yay!

Excellent interview. Thanks for posting the Youtube so quickly. Boortz is delayed where I live.

Awesome Caller!

A woman caller is talking with Neal right now, and is representing Dr.Paul really well! Well-educated and articulate--good job!

Thanks...that was me on the Neal Boortz show! :-)

Hi, that was me!

I'm so glad I got through...first try, and Belinda put me right on the air.

I've been listening to Neal's show for several years. He describes himself as a professional "puddin' stick" because he enjoys "stirrin' the puddin'" (that's Southern for "getting people riled up.") Neal is definitely a curmudgeon, but having listened for a long time, I know he's actually a big softie.

What's more, he's far more libertarian than conservative in his views, so it was very important for Dr. Paul to appear on Neal's show. Neal Boortz' audience is a great fit for Ron Paul's message.

And yes, I'm in Public Relations. It thrills me no end that my call was good enough to you comment on. Even though I do PR for a living (or what's left of a living, in this economy), I still get nervous and even now, I can't quite remember everything I said. I was amazed Neal kept me on the air so long.

I help run a snarky conservative analysis and humor site called HillBuzz.org, and I write about Ron Paul's campaign several times a week (to the annoyance of many Cocktail Party GOP readers.)

I've converted several hardcore establishment conservatives into the Ron Paul camp by politely sharing the facts about Ron Paul, media bias, etc., and politely answering questions. And it WORKS.

The best thing any Ron Paul supporter can do is be as nice, kind, decent and caring as Ron Paul is when speaking to people who don't "get it" yet. The actions of nasty, rude, insulting Ron Paul supporters (or should I say alleged supporters) have left a horrible taste in the mouths of many people who would support Ron Paul if they actually knew what he stands for. Neal Boortz used to be one of those people.

That's my free piece of PR advice for my fellow Ron Paul true believers. Be the change you want to see in the world. Show your respect for Ron Paul's common decency by being the sweetest, nicest, and best informed person in the room. Not the one who everyone remembers as "that jerk who screamed at me when I said I like Michelle Bachmann."

Great Caller

Was that the woman employed in PR? She was great! My station cuts Neal off at noon in favor of Rush. Ugh.

Those pro-Paul callers are a wonderful asset to us. Earlier on Boortz, a man called and sounded like he was a libertarian-minded voter but was for Cain!!! Maybe he kept listening and now that Cain may drop out, he'll consider Ron. I hope so. . .

Decent Interview

Neal Boortz gave Ron Paul plenty of time to speak and express his views. Surprisingly, Boortz was not argumentative and did not speak over Ron Paul.

Apparently. Boortz does want a wider national listening crowd, and has invited Ron Paul to another interview in New Hampshire on January 10th, the primary date.

It was about 15 minutes long, and....

This is a *very* favorable interview. No objectivity from what I heard (aside from the last line: will you do the interview in NH this time?).

I've listened to Boortz for a few months now, and overall his TALK is fairly on par with Ron Paul. For Boortz, it's when he starting talking about the candidates that his tone changes. He loves Herman Cain (probably because he knows the guy) and likes Newt for some reason, too. I've yet to understand that, but at least one can say he's changed his tune once he read about Ron Paul's 2002 prediction on the housing market.

Here's to hoping he takes Ron Paul very seriously for endorsement - or at least offers positive coverage.

"Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly, and they will show themselves great." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Great Interview

Boortz showed a lot of respect.

I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up endorsing him at some time. So much of what Ron Paul says is what Boortz had been saying over the years.

I've been boycotting Boortz since 2008 when he was so negative about Ron Paul. But I think he might finally be coming around.

Contrasting Bachmann's

Contrasting Bachmann's interview with Ron's. Well, I don't have to tell you . . . ;-)

Hope to hear more from Ron on Neal's show. It is great exposure for those who are misled by Cain-the-falling and eye-of-Newt.

not bad

pretty good interview...Neal had to pull dick move at the end though
