I have the same phone Romney is using in those clips... Prompted me to make some calls of my own on mine!

Great Interview

one of the best yet.

I Loved the Interview!

Well it's about time that, we had an unbiased and a long interview. He is a first place contender. I wish the the third party question would be asked of the other candidates.
I'm hearing him mentioned more than ever in the media about the New Hampshire Primary. Hooray!!

Hahaha Jessie pops in outta

Hahaha Jessie pops in outta nowhere. Ron Paul BY FAR has the best campaign


That is the best answer to the third party question, and it's very refreshing as a supporter of Dr. Paul. I emailed his campaign and his house website and asked him to say "I'm in this to win it" when asked that question about third party or if he is asked about supporting one of the other candidates. I'm not trying to claim credit for that statement or anything like that (please don't twist this comment) but it is just so refreshing to see Ron show some confidence when asked those questions usually he just says he doesn't like to speak in absolutes. So this is very cool maybe he actually read my email, then maybe its just coincidence either way great answer.

Rockstar needs our help!

If you're scared about phoning from home, today (NH Primary day) we're pretty much only calling Paul supporters to remind them to vote! THIS IS HOW WE WIN! PLEASE remind others to get out there! Plus, you don't have to be registered to vote in the primary, they can register right then and there, so it's also encouraging them to bring friends and family with!


it's fast and EASY!

I'm a contender! "It is not the size of the dog in the fight..."

"... but the size of the fight in the dog."

Dr Ron Paul: "I'm a contender."

Reporter: "... We've followed you around. You're like a rock star."

Ron Paul, 2012: Presidential Ready.

PS: Other candidates: Shovel Ready... etc. ....

Great interview.

Ron Paul is in good hands with his bodyguard. He didn't stop looking back and forth the entire time. God Bless the Bodyguard as he protects Ron Paul from harm.

What a nice guy (the interviewer)! That was downright

cordial! Very thankful for seeing Dr. Paul treated that way. I love when RP can be relaxed. He comes across so nicely.


with the third party question already. Really in a fair election Mitt can't touch us. We all know Romney looks presidential but that's where it ends, he's a joke, he will not beat Obama if that's your goal and even if he did things would continue to get worse. Wait.... a new poll of people that are aware of what's going on give Ron Paul 100% of the vote, well that will be tough for Mitt to beat. Mitt's Bumper Sticker : Romney Really? 2012 RP2012 Commander-In-Chief

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

3rd Party strongarm

Actually, I wish he would use the third party "threat" as just that...a threat. He should not state it this way, but it's clear that if someone else is nominated and RP runs independent (or libertarian), that nearly assures Obama's victory. So...it's a shot with dr. Paul or 4 more years of Obama!

Is he afraid of offending Republicans with that logic??

From the heart of the beast-

I somewhat agree. Maybe

I somewhat agree. Maybe somehow mention that a good number of his supporters are done voting for the lesser of two evils and will write him in anyways (I know I am).

I like how the reporter worded the 3rd party question in this interview. It seems like he was forced by the higher-ups to ask it, so he decided to make it less denigrating.

Nobody is asked about 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th parties...

The night is still young. Just two parties known to mainstream news reporters? What a sheltered view.

Why do all the mainstream news reporters ask about a third party without giving directions? Warn't they invited?

Why not 4th, 5th, 6th, or 7th?

Enjoy a good party. Vote with your feet. Go where you are needed. If you do something worthwhile, others are obliged to follow.

Was that Carol Paul back there?

Great to see her on the trail with Ron.

God bless them both and keep them in good health.

It's good to see some staff around Ron

In too many interviews, Ron Paul has had to stand alone and defend his positions against some really hard jabbing questions. I think it's reassuring to see Jesse Benton hanging in there, ready to punk down any out of line behavior.

Camera Angle

Note the camera angle designed to make him look like the tallest person in the room. This tells you there has been a change in attitude or that the camera operator or producer/director is impressed.

Silly question: why now? Because the press is covering him better, now. The message was always a winner.

Wow! Ron's Best Interview; Ron's Best Interviewer!

That was refreshing, a non-agenda driven interview. This Griff is like the second coming of Edward R. Murrow compared to the rest of the MSM hacks and bashers.

I love this man.

I love this man.

Great interview.

Good for Dr. Paul for bringing up the fact that he didn't take the pension.

A wonderful way to start the day...


I love that big tough bodyguard

watching everything. Feels good to have someone watching out for the good Doctor.

Notice how his head is on a

Notice how his head is on a swivel. He's doing a great job. Hope there's about 10 of them!!!

Jesse Benton?

Is that his name? I was watching Jesse Benton and it looked like he was ready to take out any one that started to put down Ron Paul again! This Fox guy gave a good interview though.

No, there was another man,

about 2/3 of the way through he appeared in the video, short, stocky, grey haired and obviously watching the whole room. Really tough looking.


interview by Dr. Paul and the reporter was fair and polite as well. Of course he was gonna throw him a curve ball, but I am even surprised that Fox showed it just like that. That was excellent and well taken oportubity to get the message out nationally without paying for a commercial.

3:52 mark:

Jesse "the muscle" moves in...suddenly appears out of nowhere...to keep the Fox guy honest, as to not ask any CNN questions!!! LOL


Wow what a great interview!
Ron Paul lookin like the BOSS!
he IS so relaxed and happy
and the interviewer did a great job also

No One But Ron Paul 2012!
