"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

At least one of the panelists is sympathetic to Paul

Juan Williams isn't going to throw out anything like that.

On the fence

More likely they'll bring up the AP article on flying first class.

not so sure they'll try it again

the last few times he turned it right around to the racially biased "criminal justice system" in conjunction with the war on drugs.

they might not want to open that door.

I've been

a polemical thorn-in-the-side on this issue because IMO the Campaign has fallen into a classic Libertarian trap when not distinguishing personal/political spheres (assuming personal condemnation = exercising good moral judgment within the elected guardianship and embodiment of principles in high office).

In order to permanently dissolve such associated 'racial' charges RP therefore must

1) privately identify the ghost-writer of the newsletters and dissociate with them until a public apology is made
2) publicly denounce any future associated bigotry [ex. openly stated hate-groups donating to the Campaign]
3) philosophically defend the innocent (ex. someone saying "I will injure you because you are black/gay/woman/Muslim etc") through forceful Constitutional policing (ex. 15th Amendment)

They discussed it earlier

They discussed it earlier that race relations was going to be one of the main focuses tonight.

nah...nickel doesn't have much value...how about a pre 1965 dime?

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”

All you libertarians care about is money

capitalist pigs!

:P

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

It's possible, but I don't

It's possible, but I don't think it will happen. Not because Fox is above the question, but because Dr. Paul's (awesome) answer last debate regarding the War on Drugs and unjust incarceration rates was something that was completely unexpected by both the moderators and the other candidates. I don't think they want to give him that kind of a platform again.

they have a stage full of racists who have and still do make racist remarks.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Would it be preferable if...

...Ron provided just a bit more context than, "I didn't write it"?

"You are referring to seven or eight stupid, politically incorrect sentences plucked out of hundreds of newsletter issues published over the course of twenty years from the mid-70's thru the mid-90's. I was the publisher, not the author or editor. I didn't write them or see them at the time. I should have policed them better, but I certainly disavow them. Now, as far as the insinuation that I'm a racist..."

Better, or worse?

he already squashed it at the

he already squashed it at the last debate. I'd just tell them to go watch the video from the last debate.

I am really getting MAD AS HELL

About the media handling of Ron Paul's presidential campaign.

Think about it...with an honest media we would be firmly in the lead by now. It is a miracle that Ron Paul STILL manages to run top tier, with everything thrown at him.

It is true. America would

It is true. America would fall in love with this guy if the media would only give him a fair shake.

Yup.

Yea, he will be asked about the Civil Rights legislation, he'd better be ready for it..

I'll bet you a nickle that

I'll bet you a nickle that when they do Ron Paul will crush it! Like He Always Does!

Just saw Young Turks and all commented on how Dr. Paul

held MLK in high esteem and considered him a hero, and yet still threw him under the bus. They just don't get that his enlightened philosophy of the world puts freedom and liberty for EACH individual person first and foremost. Once you understand this concept, all racism ceases to exist.

Need odds

I need odds to fade that bet. Lay a dollar seventy-five for my nickel, and you have action.

Are they ready for the

Are they ready for the answer?

They better ask him all the smear questions at once, so we can make a nice YouTube, or better a campaign comercial.

The latest attack is going to be on his age

Why weren't you in SC all week campaigning like the others? Are you really up to the job of being President?

I think if they ask him much

I think if they ask him much at all, it will be age or race related and I sure hope I am pleasantly surprised because they have pretty much been ignoring him totally for 4 days.

I would dare say

thats all their ammo - last shot fired
President Paul debunks issue for the last time
Battle won , now on to Victory !!!!!!

Ron Paul should scold anyone who says he is a Racist

Ron Paul should scold anyone who hits him with a Racist Question. Maybe say, what are you a 5 year old?

How bout a $10,000 bet?

How bout a $10,000 bet?

This is bigger than any individual

The establishment has nothing else to throw at him.its a sure bet the racist newletters come up tonight. watch santorum go all in on that one.
