Why do we keep posting these videos?

It is only my opinion, but I don't see the use in posting these videos of corporate media a-holes attempting to distort Dr. Paul's positions and his message. These videos do not encourage me or inspire me. Why bring attention to their programing even if it is only on youtube? We have much more stimulating posts and grassroots videos here that are not filled with their tired talking points.

One must...

know thy enemy.

Thanks lady for starting off

Thanks lady for starting off by trying to justify why you scum ignore Ron Paul. What is your excuse 6 months ago?

If she's lucky

she's got about as much brains as Paul's left pinky. Yet, listen to her talk down to someone who has more devoted followers than she gets viewers.

Good God!

Do you want to speak at the convention? AAAAAAAGGGGGHGHHH!!!!!

Let's see...Would I rather win at the local county fair or the Mega Bucks lottery? Do I want to be Mr. Congeniality or Mr. America? Is the goal to finish or finish in 1st place?

Is the MSM this dumb??

3:50 mark

I didn't know Steven Tyler worked for CNN, his voice sounds a little different though.


what a JOKE!!! liars and cheats

who is she?

I don't know who she is, but she asks shallow, irrelevant questions with a snide, smug and insinuating attitude, barely civil...


Typical lame MSM talking points...

Why don't you drop out?
What are you trying to accomplish staying in the race?
Will you support Mitt Romney?
Why won't you support Mitt Romney?
Let's talk about other candidates that have already dropped out...
Can Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama?

Of course, nothing of substance here.

Dr. Paul Too Polite

I think Dr. Paul has been too polite.

In the CNN video, her attitude and smug demeanor reminds me of the life of Job when his wife said, “Do you still hold on to your integrity? Curse God and die!” She infuriates me with her whiny voice and tilted head as if she is being compassionate or concerned because she is being condescending, and our nation is being destroyed.

Delilah comes to mind because I am noticing Dr. Paul has a weak disposition toward manipulative women or a politeness; politeness is imperative but strong and direct is equally essential when speaking to people as covert and hostile as these reporters have been, considering what is at stake.

Furthermore, possibly the reason why Dr. Paul may not be calling a spade a spade is because he appears to be hoping to do some good if we are unable to secure his nomination, but no deal should be made. Good is seeing the right side of the establishment lose to Pres. Obama—igniting more motivation and resolve—if we fail.

If we lose, then let our frustration and hope push us further until the next election where Sen. Rand Paul or another will be found as our numbers and message reaches.

We carry the message of liberty, the message we inherited, and it is irresistible. Intelligence and truth are on our side, and Dr. Paul would be better to tell it like it is.

Mitt Romney deserves no endorsement from any man or woman with integrity, and the same goes for President Obama; and, I do not think Dr. Paul and Mr. Romney are friends, as Dr. Paul said: they are friendly.

So, who are these Americans reporting it is over?

I still have a great amount of hope we will win, and I am incredibly grateful that Dr. Paul has given of himself to the cause for 37 years but most especially these past several months; he is a champion.

Sincerely, Joseph C. Carbone III; 10 May 2012

★”˜¨¯¯¨˜”ª¤(¯`*•.. The Hon. Dr. Ron Paul for 2012 ..•*´¯)¤ª”˜¨¯¯¨˜”★

Here is Mr. Schieffer and an excellent Dr. Paul when being asked the same question. Start at 3:34, or see an excellent Dr. Paul throughout the entire video, except for when he calls Mr. Romney dignified, which I think is him being, again, too polite.


When will they figure it out??

The mainstream media appears to be getting nervous.He's not going to bow out people,he told you that from the beginning.He has no plans to endorse Mitt Romney because he is still in the process of trying to become the nominee himself.These people who refer to Mitt Romney as "the nomminee apparent" and "the likely nominee" seem to be the only ones to see him as such.This chic is seriously braindead if she thinks Ron Paul is going to endorse Mitt Romney...ever.They disagree on way too many key issues and Romney's Financial backers(AKA-The Real Boss)are not going to allow his position to reflect anything resembling Pauls Contstitutional approach.

Good God...

Don't get me wrong I love boobs, legs and hotties delivering the news but you'd think these networks would hire someone with more than two braincells locked in mortal combat to do political analysis. This woman seriously has no clue.


The same lame old media talking points. Please up the ante a bit. This is in no way stimulate the wisdom and character of president Ron Paul no wonder he is taking everything direct to the people via the internet, hspeeches that gathers thousands unmatch by anyone, he is close to the action close to the american people. And the results with the delegates where amazingly positive ! RACKING UP DELEGATES AFTER DELEGATES. We'd like to ask why do you have to shove Mitt the Flip Flopper to Ron Paul's face, have some respect to the great Dr. and talk about issues and not mundane things the American ppl doesn't wanna know about. We want you to ask Ron Paul's policy on Monetary, Economic and his plans to cut 1 Trillion of the debt. Seriously NO ONE LIKE 's MITT except for corporations and banksters stop promoting him he doesn't have what what it takes. He's more of the same. Real Change is Ron Paul.

Water off a duck's back..... Let it roll off!

Ron Paul does. You think that was bad? Just recall that this great man has been putting up this cr*p for over 30 years. Imagine having to tell cheering and happy republicans that Ronald Reagan is a big spender, indeed at the time the biggest spender of all?!

Water off a duck's back...let it roll off.

Remember this: The 3 Lessons from watching 40 years of outside parties, from the Constitutional Party, the Green Party, the Libertarian Party is this --

1)-- The "2-Party Duopoly" always rules because THEY are part of the Corporate-Government Complex-Money/Media/Military/Medicine (GCC-MMMM)

2)-- People's personal-cultural identity becomes wrapped up into the two parties from early ages (I was born a democrat) and personal identities cause strong loyalties that are just as strong or stronger than new political ideologies. To compete with the natural number of democrats and republican in 35 years, libertarian parents would have to have 2500 children per household. That is just not going to happen.

3)-- Re-Branding Liberty inside the 2-party duopoly works! The R3VOLution is proving it right now. There are millions of "Ron Paul Republicans" and a growing number of "Jefferson Democrats". People can keep their personal-political-cultural identity (say a sex-loving liberal democrat), and "be" a Jefferson democrat" that champions liberty. Same with your regular republican. He/she can keep their personal-political-cultural identity (say a money-loving conservative republican) and "be" a Ron Paul Republican. Either way, liberty has been re-branded inside both parties and liberty wins.

I don't even have to watch the video

I know exactly how it will go just by looking at that stupidly condescending, status quo puppet, botox-ridden plastic faced bimbo.


Can everyone please watch your language, Ron Paul's family reads the daily Paul. I'm sure they are not the only ones reading this, So don't make the rest of the Paul supporters look crude and immature. Thanks

O, I'm sorry... Son of a motherless goat!

I have read the Bible from cover to cover and nowhere in it are vulgar expletives a sin. I am pretty sure no ten year olds are reading this site. They are probably off somewhere at a LAN party playing Red vs. Blue. Which, by the way, is an enumerated sin in the Bible.

This world is topsy turvy. I have the God given right and responsibility to speak my mind and communicate as I wish. I do not think I could have communicated, more precisely, my outrage and intent.


I never said anything about the bible, I'm just ASKING people to be careful with the cursing, not trying to take away free speech.

Your comment reminds me of

Your comment reminds me of something Daniel Tosh said.

Disclaimer: Do NOT watch that if you're one of the people who is offended at the bad language on these forums.


the hell was that? A Mitt Romney Quiz!! These media folks at the Cartoon News Network are really getting desperate. Hey, Ron what's Mitt Romney's favorite color? Why does everyone like you but there tepid towards Mitt? When you gonna endorse the guy? GREEN. HE SUCKS. ON THE THIRD OF NEVER. RP2012 In It To Win It And Not Going Anywhere

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

Condescending b!tch!

I just want to slap her.

Instead of that... I am going to max-out my contribution limit.

I could not have said it better

I am so sick of these talking heads and there brain-dead questions. When Ron wins I hope they all lose there jobs!

Just Imagine If Ron Paul Had Been Receiving Positive Press,

Coverage all these months.

He would be way ahead of Mr. Romney and Mr. Obama, and yet he's still drawing bigger crowds then them, with almost "NO" positive news coverage.


im sorry but the worst of all women anchors are worse than male

anchors.. it's rather just their inability to process logic while being uninformed, on top of hiding behind a wall of emotional mess when she feels challenged, crying victim-hood when get sent emails or loses arguments, then turn around and forget it all and pretend like nothing happened, as if brain only serves as decorative feature.. single most effective weapon in winning a debate seems to be to stop the discussion in the first place.. 'you know she'll be a thorny emotional mess when she loses the argument'

the state of mass media in hiring people by looks to sell their news by sex is pure despair, and they wonder why they lose viewers. but the point is even people like don lemon get marginally less bad given a long enough time, say 3 years, of an improvement of perhaps 5%, getting at least less emotional while on air and therefore less of a torture to watch

Well disrupting the convention is not the primary goal....

It would be a great consolation prize!! Ive tried to be nice to the GOP, I really have. But I think I am done being cordial.

The next best thing to taking over that convention, will be to deny them their K street ass monkey...


"Truth is treason in the empire of lies"......

Not a goofy "ditto" head, but I choose to DITTO your comments.


fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate

Seriously. I am so sick of

Seriously. I am so sick of the GOP. They've been completely dismissive of us for two election cycles now. If this country allowed a third party to be effective, I'd find somewhere else to go, but we really are all captive to the two party system. Better to try to have an influence within one of the major parties, and let's face it, liberty candidates ARE having a big impact. Keep it up guys. We don't have to like them. We're changing the political discourse. Slow but steady.

Wow. Just wow.

Hey so like I know you're a presidential candidate but what do you think about Mitt Romney? Do you like Mitt Romney? Does Mitt Romney ever talk about me? I don't really care. Do you think later we could drive by Mitt Romney's house? I just want to see what he's up to. Oh Mitt Romney.
