BREAKING: "Ron Paul Wins CNN Arizona Republican Debate"

Paul opened his time by defending his criticism of Santorum as fake fiscal conservative. In response to CNN moderator John King's question, "Why did you call Senator Santorum a fake fiscal conservative?" Paul quipped, "Because he's a fake!" After the massive applause died down, Paul pointed out that most politicians are fiscal hawks during their campaigns, but they tend to be far less principled once elected. Santorum, who admitted he wouldn't cut defense spending, and supported dozens of federal spending increases while in Congress, perfectly fits this description.

Who cares

Who cares about CNN polls? You guys are keeping running right and left trying promote Dr. Paul through polls, save your energies and concentrate on getting Dr. Paul the right support by getting delegates and donations. If we have learned a thing or two then remember that if they want Romney or Santorum to win a poll then it's just a matter of changing numbers. You remember Maine? Well, changing a poll is much easier for them.

Um what? This is an article,

Um what? This is an article, not some poll. Which clearly states why in the writers Ron won the debate.

I really have ZERO doubts tonight.

This really might have been one of Ron Paul's best performances in a debate yet, and he full-on OWNED Santorum tonight. I can't wait to see Sanitarium drop out soon. So long, Mr. Flavor of the Week.

Unfortunately, Ron let the

Unfortunately, Ron let the moderator divert him from the original question: What is your proposal to fix the economy? He used up his minute flaming Santorum, rather than getting his message across. And flaming Santorm gives Santorum more time for rebuttal, too.

This should have been a slam-dunk for Ron. But I didn't hear "Cut a trillion dollars first year." Or "eliminate the departments of ...". The audience was left with no clue what Ron's plan was. (Remember that many of the people watching each debate have never heard Ron's positions before.)

Now maybe it was more important to roast Santorum, the up-and-coming front runner of the week. But I'm concerned that the economic message isn't getting out.

The moderator did this to Ron, Newt, and Rick several times throughout the debate. First one or two get the basic question, but then it gets spun off-topic when he gets to the third or fourth candidate. (Fourth almost always was Ron.)

In at least one case he spun the question into a digression while interposing himself between the questioner and the FIRST candidate. B-)

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

I agree with you entirely.

I agree with you entirely. The most troubling answer occurred just after Newt enlarged the issue to criticize the way the government uses coercion but rather than use the opportunity to comment on the Founder's motivation to prevent another tyranny from ever happening by granting just certain powers to the Congress, instead Ron narrowed the issue to his preoccupation about abortion.

I get the impression that no one is pointing these kinds of things out to him.

He didn't point out that in a truly free capitalist society, which has never existed, there is complete separation of the government from the economy, meaning from the contractual productive endeavors of individuals, with no government interventions.

He also didn't point out this time, he has done so before, that it was the Congress with its passage of the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 which led to the mortgage crisis once Bill Clinton ordered heads of agencies including the Federal Reserve to threaten the bankers with discrimination in lending lawsuits if they didn't make those subprime loans to people who didn't meet normal criteria.

Ron Paul doesn't appear to come into these debates armed with points he wants to be sure to make. Considering that is the case he does pretty well but is sometimes inarticulate and not sufficiently explicit.

"Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals- that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the
