It david gergen

Got it?


I loved these videos, Also I noticed you recorded this on a mac :)


liar! it doesn't warm that cold cold media heart of yours!


it warmed her heart it would melt away because it is made of ice.

I was there!

It was awesome.... a lot of us were there from Orlando actually. My family (kids included), were front and center (behind the anchors),in these segments. We were waving signs all afternoon, and early evening until Ron Paul arrived... waving at us. Then marched over to the CNN "coverage", chanting "Ron Paul Revolution, Give us back our Constitution", It was great fun. FYI.... there were NO other sign wavers there (that I saw), for any of the other candidates! There was one guy with a pipe in his mouth, driving in circles with his truck covered in Romney signs and some big American flags.... kept driving past all the "Ron Paul people", so we started singing the song "Lonely" to him his third time around. Gotta go take some honey for my throat, after all that screaming!!!

"I don't know if the world is full of smart men bluffing
or imbeciles who mean it."

I'm not impressed with the heckling :-(

Sorry. It was awesome to see the gigantic Ron Paul sign and the End the Fed signs. But those signs were associated with people shouting down the TV show, making asses of themselves in my opinion. Made me think of drunks watching a basketball game.
Dr. Paul overwhelms the pundits with his expertise and wit, not by hollering over them.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

The Good Doctor knows his supporters are boisterous and

energetic. I do not think he would in any way censor this type of activity.


I think it was proper

and justified.

CNN has censored, marginalized and vilified RP and his liberty message. As they try to convey their 2 contender message, it was nice to see these kids yelling "we're not dead yet".

I only wish this old carcass had been out there with them to prove the call of freedom can be heard by young and old alike.

I'll take my Liberty, it's not yours to give.

This was nothing more than

This was nothing more than some devoted Republicans getting a little boisterous for their candidate! Isn't this actually the traditional scene at political gatherings? This is what sign holding, picketing, and so forth are all about. Its all about gaining attention for your cause. Moreover, because Ron Paul is deliberately blacked out of the media, supporters must raise awareness wherever possible. If that had been Romney supporters in the background the pundits would be all over it saying how cute the crowd was and how devoted and strong his following is in the true sense of the GOP yadda yadda. I applaud the RP people for making noise and not letting them snuff out Ron Paul without a whimper.

I don't like heckling either, BUT. . .

the fact that these pundits did not cover Ron Paul clearly shows that the RP supporters were not going to take that laying down. I would have probably been chanting too if I had seen so much talk and so little substance.

I disagree

These are the very same networks who black out Ron Paul, To me it seems to be an Equal and opposite reaction.

Also remember Ron Paul is Ron Paul these people are their own people and I like them not being the same person :)

This is force without actual force.

Very exemplary of good principles. The principles are serious. Force is immoral. Setting an example is neither moral nor immoral, it is neutral.

Very admirable on the part of Ron Paul supporters.

Way to go Florida. I lived near Jacksonville and you activists for liberty make me proud.

Hilarious. Great Job

Hilarious. Great Job background!!!
Keep it up and don't forget to hold up a sign saying boycott all their corporate sponsors because of media blackout of Ron Paul. Hold it up at times like these.

Be Your Own Media!!!

boring commentary, wonderful background

why are we supposed to care what david gergen and those other 2 clowns think ??????????????????



it kinda of reminds me of those type of photos where the front is out of focus and the stuff in the back ground is focused on.

WOW, that's so awesome seeing

WOW, that's so awesome seeing all the people cheering for Ron Paul behind the talking heads, there was NO denying that he had a ton of support, funny how the media didn't really acknowledge them, hilarious! I LOVE IT!! RON PAUL 2012!!!

These pundits

Frankly, I am not worried about the future of the Republican Party, I am worried about the future of our country! Vote the person and the principles, not the party.

Best Sign Bomb Ever


I am Amazed

Having lived in StPete/Tampa area for a little bit, I was aware of the support there and witnessed as such with the vids of the supporters outside the last debate. I actually had tears on my face watching it. But I had NO IDEA the support in northern Florida. Don't make me cry again.

Anyway, I think this makes an important point. Ron Paul supporters taking to the streets with an attitude of 'You Cant Ignore Us' is brilliant on many levels ....
1) Proves wrong the notion on unelectable. The support is obvious and they cant hide it when it is right in front of the cameras
2) Bandwagon effect - for the people that need it, they see popularity and jump on board with their vote.
3) The timid no longer afraid to show support.
4) The medias attempt at trying to demonize RP supporters in hopes that we will hide in closets is not working.
5) Any attempt to claim very low percentage in vote results would be obviously caught as fraud if the support is prevalent.

So in summary, not only do I enjoy and endorse debate gatherings and media surrounding, but I'd suggest this might be an excellent idea for ANY media coverings that might be happening in your area (except coverage of bad stuff that is).

We Need to Make Sure Jon Stewart Sees This

Bump please.

Awesome crowd!

Awesome crowd!

Great videos

This is amusing. CNN is just trying to focus on Gingrich and Romney. They make it seem (not just in these videos) that everyone supports Romney or Gingrich for President. Meanwhile, all you see and hear in the background is Ron Paul, Ron Paul and more Ron Paul! Ha ha. It's hard to censor live TV. I love it!

CNN went to a Ron Paul rally...

...and a PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE broke out!

That's how Ron Paul rolls.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

A big thank you to everyone waving the signs and banners in support of Ron Paul -- you guys rock. Seeing all the enthusiasm really makes me proud to be a Ron Paul supporter.

Heading to donate


I'll take my Liberty, it's not yours to give.

I saw this live, too.

I'll never forget my glee. I especially loved the HUGE sign next Erin's head that said something like "Don't Believe the Liberal Mainstream Media!".

Jacksonville really kicked it up a notch!!! FREEEEE BIRD!!! (the home of Lynyrd Skynyrd) This is a fun competition - which city is up next?
