Ha...at 3.33 minutes she says...

"...one thing that's really been frustrating me...all of this fighting back and forth, he said she said, we're not talking about the issues of the American Economy..." SHE'S frustrated? SHE'S frustrated?? Well, at least he got nearly 4 minutes to talk about some real issues, loved it when he chuckled about the Federal Reserve getting us out of economic trouble.


...don't bogart my frustration! We've been pushing for "real issues" and CNBC has been burying them for years!

How does Dr. Paul keep his cool? Amazing.

Typical mainstream media propaganda to deceive people

1) Introduce the interview by stating Ron Paul is far behind and has no chance of winning.

2) Ask if Ron Paul is a GOP spoiler, and should drop out.

3) Report false delegate numbers from Associated Press (at one time CNBC shows a graphic with Ron Paul at 50 delegates at another time they show him with 34, neither are accurate).

4) Ask if Ron Paul is interested in Vice President.

5) Perpetuate lie about Romney / Paul alliance.

I guess someone studying journalism in college today should do a little soul searching...

@ 2:51 in the video the "total delegates needed" bar is directly beneath the column for RP, propping up the illusion that he is far behind in delegates.
@3:19 in the video the map shows the Santorum states as Romney states, and vice versa.


I noticed that right away when I looked at Michigan and Ohio, and looked at what color the candidates were. Deceptive CNBC.

You're right, they're promoting Santorum

Because they know he will lose to Obama. And Obama has already proven to be a good puppet.

Strong Dr. Paul

Wow Dr. Paul, your strength is admirable.This is driving us crazy and you let nothing deter you.

I'm sorry, I couldn't even

I'm sorry, I couldn't even watch this interview in its entirety. That woman (whoever the heck she is) is about as worthless as a fly on cow dung.

I bailed after her first insulting question.

Let Rick Santelli interview Ron Paul!

The man who has some famous rants on the CNBC floor is Rick Santelli. He will not sell his soul for a dollar. He does not take the crap that was dumped down. This interview does not give Maria Bartiromo any credibility.

Lip injections for Maria?

No...this is not an insult toward her, but I could here her speech struggles during this interview.
I started this interview with my despise for her growing during the first few minutes. However, RP handled her with his sense of grace. I mean, she came off with this tough chick attitude, trying to "reduce the importance of Ron Paul" to his face". I was seeing RED! However, RP held his ground, made sense, and MIGHT have even impressed her a bit.
I had to laugh when she talked of Ron Paul's "lack of support". Are you f**king kidding me???? When you compare those 4 Presidential Republican candidates, we ALL know that NOBODY ELSE draws in the people like Ron Paul, whose speaking occasions have the energy and audience frenzy of a Rock concert. Any "lack of support" is due to dirty and illegal politics. It's an uphill battle folks, but we have to FIGHT for what we want, then let's FIGHT for it, HARDCORE!!! But fight it the honorable way.

Maria Barf Alone Ah : Sh*t For Brains

"A good woman is worth her weight in rubies." ~ Soloman

Maria is alot of 'fools gold'

Arrogant shill for the establishment. I bet she gets goose bumps when she sees Obama..

If you smart women ever gets goose bumps from obama...RUN!

Personally, I feel insulted that CNBC would parade out this shill Maria to interview the great doctor of liberty..

She is really vacant.

Look in those eyes. Nothing there.

Run for Vice President? Really?

I really want to move to another country, but I'll stay here and fight.

Sometimes the stupidity out there just hurts my soul.

I learned something today...

I dont find hot women attractive when they act like children

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

I haven't watched it

and don't plan too, this is CNBC, she is preaching to the idiots, nothing will help them, regardless. They will vote for a puppet regardless.. This is the same channel where there is an other idiot, Kramer... Who watches this crap? mind numbing.... I threw the TV out five years ago, and don't miss it one bit.... Ron Paul is too enlightened for these people... Maria is basically in it for the money, but in due course she won't have any freedoms... These people are brainwashed to the max. I mean, if they can't see the message being put out by the Good Doctor, they're basically lost.

Lets not forget

She works for GE, they want to send our kids to fight the wars for them to make money.. She must be okay with that, I mean that's who's paying her... So she is either a retard, or could care less about America, like most of the other shills on mainstream media..

She seems to have trouble

She seems to have trouble speaking with her fake disgusting looking lips.

What nerve on that broad

Who does she think she is? "why don't you quit now?" REALLY?

The questions were soooo lame.

Today's GOP

When I think about the Republican Party today, all I can think of is a pure obstructionist party. John Boehner's yelling "Hell, no you can't!" on the House floor pretty much sums up the Republican Party of today. Unwilling to accept new ideas, and relegating someone like Ron Paul to the sidelines, there is no chance of the Republican Party defeating Barack Obama in the presidential election. In fact, that seems to be their only goal. They are not campaigning on anything else, except to get "the black guy" out of office. For most Americans, this just isn't going to fly. No matter what conspiracy you want to throw at this administration, he killed Bin Laden, was politically forced to provide a birth certificate, and the worst thing that they have on him is that he has tried to provide healthcare coverage to 40 million uninsured Americans. Drone strikes against American civilians are endorsed by the other Republican candidates, and their only stated goal is to get Barack Obama out of office because "he doesn't know how to create jobs". The reality is that the economic bubble was created under George Bush, when he went on television numerous times, urging everyone to take out a loan and buy a house to "live the American dream". Job numbers went into the dumpster during Bush's last years in office and rebounded to slight losses, and then gains, after the President took office. No matter how you want to look at it, neither Romney nor Santorum have a leg to stand-on against the current administration. While not the best solution for America, Obama has at least signaled to allies and foes that the US is not poised to engage in a military confrontation with Iran. This gives him additional election points for the anti-war vote, which has become pretty much everyone. Dr. Paul has three things against him: living down the Bush legacy, which he does best, and the other candidates do least, trying to defeat people like Romney who have billions at their heals from special interests, and being a free thinker who fights the status quo. He will not be endorsed by a Republican Party that is busy arguing over contraceptives and homosexuality. Mainstream Americans simply don't care about those issues. It is a shame that Ron Paul routinely calls out the bankers, the cause of all economic ruin, and the warfare state, but is continually railroaded by his own party. The one man on the stage who actually knew Ronald Reagan, while the rest of them take credit for his faux legacy. Reagan was a great president because he inspired millions of Americans - he was a great actor. But he threw us into crazy deficits - a policy that has been continued by every president since. Democrat or Republican - we are looking at one faction of the same party. But Ron Paul's message still resonates.

I don't think this is such a bad interview

I think you are over-reacting. The first half minute wasn't good, but the whole interview was ok, and Ron Paul did a good interview. I long ceased caring about the questioner but only the interview itself.

Maria Bartiromo is also intelligent and good looking. I'm not sure where some of you were raised, but where I come from, we don't attack women, people's looks, or their intelligence. Anyone telling you you should react that way politically is trying to make you look bad - and it is on purpose. That is how the crafty and bad operate.

I've watched Maria for more than a decade. She gives very good interviews when it is an entrepreneur, and not so good interviews on politics. In fact, she is probably a natural ally because of the entrepreneurship, because what is happening is the subversion of the free enterprise system. She may not agree with me poltically. But she has to be feeling uncomfort about what is happening politically to what she loves as a career - wall street. She was one of the first to frequently mention the sovereign debt crisis.

Encourage others. You get more with honey than vinegar.

FYI - I also note Maria also

FYI - I also note Maria recently tweetted me back on twitter. She seems nice. I don't think we agree on politics, but I'm not really sure what her politics is.

Maybe she's not Ron Paul, but no one else is.

I've watched CNBC for years, and I no longer do so anymore. Maria Bartiroma knows full well the machinations of Wall Street. She knows George Soros. She interviewed him in '09 and asked him, "How was your '08?" He replied, "I had a great '08!!" Yes, I'm sure he did after naked short-selling the market, then jumping into the banks at the bottom. They do anything to front run the money of the Federal Reserve and to profit from it. He had "insider trading" information, and only recently he closed his Hedge Fund for fear of investigations.

Maria seemed to have had a "conversation" prior to the interview---something like---"Don't worry, I'll be real tough on him!!" She even said Ron Paul worried her, that is, him staying in the race.

I thought Dr. Paul did NOT, however, bring up a perfectly legitimate occurrence which would have explained the erroneous "delegate counts" that the Media puts out there---and that was what happened in St. Charles, MO. Ron should have brought that up as a legitimate defense of the American people who are supporting him & who want real change & who are sick & tired of the current mess in D.C. and who are being disenfranchised 100%!

But....he didn't. :(

This DESERVES a mass email complaint

Anyone know the best email to use for CNBC to complain about this interview? I am writing a letter right now and it will be going to maria@bartiromo.com and CNBC...I'll come back here & copy/paste it if anyone else wants to use it to send as well.

This is beyond ridiculous. I want my voice heard in LOUD complaint over the way this interview was conducted. I'm not keeping my mouth shut about this kind of thing anymore at all.
