Except the "Election Dashboard" on Huffington Post. Dispicable.

if Ron Paul was the 'front runner'

Ms Maddow would put a tin foil hat prop on her head and roll her eyes every time she talked about him. With Mitt- she's doing the right things for the wrong reasons.

I remember a piece on her in People back in 2007 or 2008

And they asked her which candidate she liked and she said Dr. Paul. You could prob google it but i cant link from my cell..
edit: It was tne new york times and figured out the link: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/19/magazine/19wwln-domains-t....

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Ive heard her sing his praises a number of times

she has a good enough relationship with him to have him on the show- as well as people from his camp. She is very respectful. But she keeps him at a very safe distance and has no problem piling on him anytime he looks like he might be getting a break. She was right at the top of the slander machine that broke his momentum going into Iowa. She wasnt just reading her script either- she was ROCKING the so-called racist newsletters. She was really enjoying tearing him (and us) down. Its no sweat off her back to be nice now- her damage is done.

She's been attacking Mitt from the beginning, because she's an

Obamatron. I'm sure her M.O. is to attack whoever the GOP "frontrunner" is considered to be.


She took advantage of the

She took advantage of the Gaffe by Romney's lackey to re-vitalize his flip-flopperness. Where did that "narrative" go? Well it just reared it's ugly head. Face it Romney is a liar, isn't that what flip flopping is essentially? Hopefully the candidates can pick up on this so that the American people can pick up on it. Now we just need to get Ron Paul's consistency and honesty in the American voting psyche. Next to Romney's cold lying Dr. Paul's honesty makes you feel warm and safe. If the GOP establishment was't crapping their pants because their "made-man" was on the ropes, they are now. REMEMBER, WE WANT A BROKERED CONVENTION. This only helps us.

did paul drop out?

no mention of him by maddox not is he in their "dashboard"

If Dr. Paul Wants To Lay The "Alliance" Rumors To Rest

He should do an ad drawing liberally from this piece -- like the SERIAL HYPOCRITE ad that drew soundbites from news stories.

It could really injure him, and now's the time. I think the goal now is to keep Romney under 1144 delegates, even if it means directing some votes to Gingrich and Santorum.

Sad thing is the people who need to be watching this are

watching Hannity-- still harping about Obamney hugging a professor from 20 years ago....or lard a$$ Karl Rove doing his Jethro Bodine ciphering on a little white board.

You'll never see a show like that

about Ron Paul!

Wow, talk about a tongue lashing!

She did a real number on him!

The Winds of Change!

Consistent Philosophy

Rachel Maddow's morality has exactly two tenets: Democrats good; Republicans bad.

She is going after Romney because she figures he is to be the R nominee. Remember, she was very nice to Rand Paul when she thought he was nothing more than an irritant to the GOP establishment. When he actually got the nomination, Rachel turned on him viciously without warning.

Exactly. Very consistent snake-like quality - with a smile!

It's so much fun!


When you help D out, you help R out.

So by speaking truth about Romney that his rivals haven't completed in frequently calling him a liar, Rachel does the world a lot of good.

His lying is shocking for those who don't like liars. The focus needs to be Romney. It is too little, too late as the focus should have been mainly on him from day 1.


Who would want to be friends with liar Romney?

after watching this Maddow piece. In case people are still lying to themselves that Romney lies less than the other candidates, then Rachel will set them straight.

Romney will backstab any non-elitist person he pretends to befriend.

I don't think many rp supporters will like rachel's piece on romney as it hits the truth.


Why do you say that?

Do you think we like Romney? OK, welcome to Earth then.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Certainly there is a lot of like and sympathy...

and acting like he is not the biggest liar and danger to this country adn liberty movement.


You might check your hypothesis

by perusing the comments here. None are friendly toward Romney, are they?

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Another opportunity to hit

Another opportunity to hit the comment board, and talk about Ron Paul's consistent, honest, record.

RON PAUL 2012 * Restore America * Bring The Troops Home

She's Getting To Something Important

That Romney is, like our last few presidents, a sociopath:


Another point of interest: Early in the campaign, in calling Romney a liar, Newt Gingrich exhibited a rare moment of insight and honesty, albeit for his own sociopathic reasons.

"Unprecedented deceit"?

Really Rachel?

Hell yes and I agree that Romney is a liar. And a serial one at that.

But "unprecedented deceit"? REALLY??

How is Barack Obama's massive pathological betrayal of the American people, any less unprecedented??

The silence is deafening.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Obama and Romney are so similar that ..

it is not worth discussing who is worse. Of course, Romney is a slight bit better than Obama. But 4 years of Romney and the people will get exhausted just as they were of Bush which will then bring in another far left pres like hillary clinton.

the US is at such a tipping point that romney would happily push the US over just as Obama intends to do.

You missed my point

I am amazed with the things like the NDAA, HR347, the new EO declaring martial law, the non closing of Gitmo, the tripartite expansion of the Afghanistan war, the unprecedented war on drugs of the Feds agains the Cali medical marijuana, etc....that Rachel Maddow is silent on these things.

Like i said...the silence is DEAFENING.

she was not silent at all on ndaa.

in fact she delivered the most passionate speech against ndaa. she linked it with minority report and is very much against it. more people should hear that clip.

but yes she does not go at other things, but if a few things come out of her that are good, than that is sufficient.

The silence is deafening...

The silence is deafening in coverup of her man Obama....whom she should be firing against double-guns 24 hours a day.

Where is the outrage of the abject betrayal of Obama against his peace candidate voters.

At least Bush didn't hide it.

Obama hid it and INCREASED it...everything...the wars...medical maryjane raids in Cali...EVERY promise broken and then some.

My point is...(and I sincerely like Rachel I think she is great journalist and articulate to boot...where is the OUTRAGE against the legion and serial Obama betrayals??

The silence is deafening.

That's Why, For Us, Obama Would Be Better Than Romney

Romney will give us eight years of Bush-style big government, or give us four and help usher in another Democrat.

Yoo know we work hard and ironically...

we are trying to keep the Republican Party from committing suicide. The Establishment must be desperate to put this (sorry to all clowns) clown out there :^)

Ron Paul 2012!!!

I don't know who is worse

Romney or Maddow... The clip where he says the economy was in a recession and obama made it worse is one of the few times romney's actually told the truth.

I am sovereign unto myself

She was able call him a liar

She was able call him a liar about thatt easily with Mitt since he doesn't know how to back up his statement. Maybe she took Mitt's response out of context, but we saw how Mitt would just say "I didn't say it was worse".

If she tried to say the same about Ron Paul, then she would either have to contend with his detailed common sense explaination or become a liar herself.

While I think the vast

While I think the vast majority of what she said is absolutely true; I think it maybe a double edged sword, in the regards that the Neocons will say, "see the left is completely terrified of Mitt, that's why they are attacking him like that," and then the Republican base will solidify around Mitt and the U.S. is completely and utterly doomed.

I think she may be pushing this because she knows, as we all do, that if Mitt is the Republican nominee then Obama will be re-elected.
