I thought the same thing. lol

She is just.....

looking to do a hit piece. Ignore her.

Desperate to fill air time, Greta?

Need to re-regurgitate old controversy as an alternative to the current presidential campaign race? Bored, or just to lazy to practice real professional journalism going out and investigating instead of asking people to come to you with news on a silver platter?

Why are you begging the question? Like you do not already know why Ron Paul's positions are so popular with his supporters?

At least Ron Paul will be remembered in history for his unique campaign run. You however, will not.

Really????

Why do you care now?
Do they pay you well enough to not be concerned with your constitutional rights or those of your fellow Americans?
Do they pay you enough to sell your soul?
What type of person do you see when you look in the mirror?
This is not only directed to you, but to all in the mainstream
media.
I can only shake my head in disgust.

Like you really care? You

Like you really care? You black listed doctor Paul and did everything in your power to keep him out of the race. This is a bull s t play to try to gain the support of Ron's supporters. I cancelled my Dish this week.... No more FOX crap for me....

the MISTAKE the MEDIA made~~

First, thanks for asking!

What I want to explain to you is that the Ron Paul "movement" began from within the hearts of open-minded people of ALL AGES. And, above that, it was born out of a complete & utter frustration with our government politicians & the corruption that seemed inherent from within. The MISTAKE the MEDIA made was in underestimating the massive upset with this corruption amongst the MASSES.

We, as a country, had been given the lesser of 2 evil choices for far too long. No one single intelligent man or woman could run for Congress or the Senate, unless they had the support of the 'chosen' parties. Nothing ever changed.

.....unil Dr. RON PAUL.

Briefly, what we found so appealing in him was the following:

He struck a cord. He made sense! Whatever he said was always put in a "common sense" context, and it rang a very strong chord of HONESTY.

He was CONSISTENT! And, his consistency had a ring of honesty which was easily detected. He was even consistent in his marriage and marital vows, a rare bird to be sure which added even more confidence in this man! Plus, the old video clips of Ron Paul speaking and believing in the SAME THINGS! He was simply AMAZING!!

He was anti-war, unless we were attacked by another country, or there was "imminent" reason another country was in the process of pressing the proverbial button to destroy us. It isn't just a few RP supporters who felt this way. It's many, many Americans, including Obama supporters who had been disappointed with him when he increased the troops in Afghanistan by 30,000 soldiers! Brother. From our many visits with non-activists at the Fortune 500 company my husband works for, they all were frustrated with the choices they were given. Many WANTED to vote for Dr. Paul. Many more were LEANING in his direction. MANY, if not all we talked to, believed HE was THE ANSWER to our economic problems!!

Again, the mistake the Media made was in underestimating just how pervasive it went, that is, it wasn't just the "youth". The "youth" were a part of it---made more obvious because they were inside college institutions & came together in a much more obvious way. But, many older Americans, many really intelligent, many educated, and many small company businessmen were deeply angry about what was going on in D.C., with the passing of bills they didn't read!! That alone was egregious!! And, of course, the SPENDING like drunken sailors--that, too, was egregious. And, don't forget the completely immoral Banking Bailouts--a form of legitimized GRAND THEFT!! And, here in our own town, the STIMULUS BILL, designed to enrich the pockets of their own Federal Employees, their own people! What? Indeed, spending over $88 million on a huge FEDERAL building with double-back-up systems with "bend" walls & over 30 heavy boulders to the tune of around $30k just for that, bomb-proof windows, and a new "security" entrance with a full-time security guard allowing cars to come & go, as if we were at the airport. This is Billings, MT, and all our friends thought it was obscene! And, what do these "regular" FED people with regular jobs have to be afraid of?? It's utterly ridiculous and disgusting. Why, EXXONMOBIL offices are low-class compared to this luxury. And, politicians wonder why we are all mad, as citizens who pay THEIR bills.

People were ready for a RON PAUL--an honest, good man, incomparable to all the other "politicians"---a statestman in the truest sense of the word, with integrity, and someone we could have trusted to bring our boys home, and someone the WORLD seemed to want, and even someone who was willing to work as President for the pay of an average American @$38,000/year! Wow! I just always wondered what it would take for you people to be shocked by this kind of quality man?? There were so many, many things about him.

What were his weaknesses? Perhaps that lies in the staff he had hired, because they didn't help the situation. Dr. Paul may have been too trusting, perhaps too nice. That would be our only criticism, but certainly not the core of this man.
HE WAS ABOVE REPROACH!

It is a SAD, SAD day that because of the SLANDEROUS Media and the CROOKED crooks within the GOP, because of their constant cheating and manipulations and low-down crap they pulled on Ron Paul AND this group of Americans who supported him, who got involved. Well, it is a SAD, SAD day that all the other Americans didn't really get to know this wonderful, RARE STATESMAN, as they could have through an unbiased Media...as this kind of person only comes along once in a lifetime. Dr. Ron Paul.

Many of our "Republican" friends feel forced into voting for Romney. Some won't vote at all. We are writing Dr. Paul's name in on our ballot, so we can sleep at night...THIS time.

Just another

washed up old gal from that era who just doesn't get it...and no amount of explaining will change that fact...Its a generational issue....ever noticed they always seem so clueless ?....Its because they are....

generational issue my ass.

I am a generation above her, and I turned my adult kids on to Ron Paul. I was turned on to Ron Paul 5 years ago by an 86 year old man.

Hmmm

That's wonderful but according to the voting breakdown in this years primaries it is MOST DEFINANTLY predominantly Baby Boomers that do not "get" Ron Paul.
The world would be a much better place had we been able to skip that generation all together....They had the world handed to them by their parents and have ate all the seed corn like the locust they are and are now in the process of burning their kids and grand kids furniture to keep their little party going.... WANT REAL CHANGE?...
Stop electing Boomers and throw their no good spoiled asses out of office....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."

Me Too, a Senior

I'm a senior. Gosh. I feel like a rebel rouser teen. I feel like a hippy; oh, I am. Well, I feel like a revolutionary and always have.
So, Greta, I'm 67 and have been a Ron Paul fan since 2007. I marched in the Ron Paul Revolution in Washington DC in July 2008.
It's not a generational issue. Another thing that surprises me is when people wonder what "young people" like about the elder Ron Paul. Don't those people LISTEN to what he says? Don't those people have IDEALS as the youth have ... ideal about the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights?
Who are these people who don't "get" Ron Paul? Did they ever have a Civics Class? Did they ever go to U.S. History class??

They are called the Baby Boomers...The same bunch of losers that are running the country in to the ground....

It took her long enough but now she is listening...
It is now our duty to wake her up!

good luck with that....

Dear Greta Van Susteren~FAUX News knows Romney will lose.

Dear Greta~
If you add up all the Republicans voting for Gary Johnson and writing in Ron Paul, Willard The Pig does not have a chance. Lots of these people may have ended up voting for Romney, but the RNC/GOP shot themselves in the foot by the way they conducted themselves at the primaries and conventions. They cheated. They stole votes and assaulted Ron Paul supporters. It's been documented and on video. http://jaretglenn.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/how-the-republica...

And Greta, you should be ashamed of yourself by totally ignoring the Paul campaign. I don't care if your bosses told you to, it is unethical journalism.
Lots of the states Romney "won" in the primaries-he was actually in 3rd place. Many of the states, the race was between Santorum and Paul and Romney was not even a factor, but the cheating kept going on, all the way up till the RNC. And then the rule changes. Those rule changes were not only noticed by the Paul people, they were noticed by Freedomworks, Michelle Malkin, Rush and your dear buddy Sarah Palin. Palin and Malkin were shut up quickly because they wanted to keep their common tater status and FOX checks coming in. Reince Priebus and the RNC are despicable, and you can put yourself in the lowlife club along side them.
Sincerely,
Ralph Hornsby

P.S. I used to be a fan of your show when you showed all the crime trials and all the big court cases and lawyers on your show. That is where your talent was. You should stop covering politics because the questions you ask the politicians are scripted to please your viewers and not to find real answers or truth.

Ralph, I'm surprised at you

Ralph, I'm surprised at you with your "Willard the pig" comment. I think you should apologize to all pigs, and swine in general for that matter, for associating Willard Romney with them.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Willard "Mitt" Romney and The Pig

1. Pigs do not posses a conscience. They are creatures of instinct. Pigs do what is natural for them, they love to roll around in the mud and get dirty.

2. Romney was born with a consecince but lost it when he starting rolling around in the mud with the pigs.

Afraid it doesn't matter if he gets the votes.

I really don't think actual voting makes a difference. I believe it is the intention of the establishment to put romney in as president. The so called "news" stations will carry out a election "reality show" style. All rigged.

Obama has too much dirt, his birth certificate is in fact a forgery, the fast and furious situation is ugly....etc. I really think they plan on putting romney in to lead us into WWIII.

Right on, Ralph

As if I'd vote for Romney!!

Thanx,

Jason

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

The MSM plays Dumb...

as usual.

I'll tell ya old crooked mouth !

The reason why we are so passionate about our support for Ron Paul is because he possesses a characteristic as a human being that you and none of your fellow lackeys in the media could possibly comprehend. This goes double for Obama and Willard" Chicken Hawk" Romney. It's called personal integrity. It is the ability to use your brain for which it was intended, to think. The ability to recognize a snow job from a mile away when a MSM lackey does his or her AIPAC infused level best to schmooze you into buying it.It is knowing that your own damn country has been bought and paid for by Israel and Bibi Netanyahu to do their nefarious killing by proxy.Ron Paul is a gentle soul who values every human life as we do.You got what you wanted by keeping Ron Paul out of the drivers seat this time around you half witted slit, but I promise you that will most assuredly not be the case four years from now ! Assuming, of course, there is anything left of Amerika to save !

greta's a day late dollar short

It would have been interesting to see how the world reacted to a peaceable, principled, independence and freedom-loving man at the head of a great military power. "Masters-of-the-universe" like Lindsay Graham and John McCain would no doubt accuse RP of giving away the farm, but I believe a man like Ron Paul heading the U.S. would have had a salutary effect on peace the world over. Plus, nobody pulls the wool over the eyes of Ron Paul.

She's asking this now?

Whew... sickening.

Greta - Listen up....

I stopped listening to you and all of Fox news the day Fox started to repeat over and over that Ron Paul is "unelectable". No one is "unelectable" if I or anyone wants to vote for that person...so sorry. Remember when Nancy Pelosi stood before the media, and when asked why they pushed through Obamacare even though the people didn't want it, she just kept repeating over and over.."Its what the American people want.." I thought she was nuts, until I heard you and all of Fox news saying over and over that Ron Paul is unelectable. It was the same absurdity. How dare you use the media as a source of jamming what you want down our throats, instead of simply reporting the truth.
Why am I passionate about Ron Paul you ask? I could go on and on about how I want this country to go back to following the constitution, or how Ron Paul wants to get our troops out and now, or how he has ideas on how to cut our deficit now, not later, everything he stands for I agree or have come to learn to agree. However, for me, bottom line...LISTEN UP HERE NOW GRETA...BECAUSE HE IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT I BELIEVE WILL FOLLOW THROUGH WITH WHAT HE CLAIMS TO STAND FOR. Do you understand that? This means that even if Romney or Obama comes out and starts to promise the same things that Ron Paul said he stood for and would do as president, LISTEN UP AGAIN...I WON'T BELIEVE THEM. Even if you and all of main stream media keep repeating it over and over and over. Ron Paul speaks the truth and has a record to prove it. No one else can compare to this. No one.
I watched every single debate and every delegate convention on the DP as well as the RNC. IT WAS A TRUE TRAGEDY AND ONLY MORE PROOF THAT WE NEED SOMEONE WHO FOLLOWS AND LIVES ON BEING TRUE TO HIM/HERSELF AS WELL AS WITH US. For someone that you and Romney kept claiming was unelectable, Romney certainly went out of his way to lie, cheat, and steal his way through the election. Why didn't you report on this? Did you watch the you tube videos on some of those delegate conventions? How about LA? Maybe you should. Do you have any idea how despicable it was to watch how Romney was allowed to reach in and remove any delegates (all Ron Paul's of course)that he wanted or needed to win the election? It was cowardly, to put it mildly, not to even let him speak at the convention. Then to make matters worse, he didn't even try to mend ways with us at the RNC, instead he took it one step further and changed the rules so as to not have to work so hard next time he needs to cheat.
I don't even need to point out the corruption and lies we've already endured with Obama, Fox news knows and reports all about him. No problem there. But what about the Romney corruption? You allowed him to not just get by with his lies but to continue them. If I have to look into the future and try to place a bet on how Romney will be as president, I'd have to say we are in for just more lies, cheating and corruption. Only this time Romney will get to do it as president. I for one, am not going to wait and sit around until I finally hear you start to report what we already knew and were ignored on when we tried to speak it. I am voting for either Ron Paul or Gary Johnson. I'm voting for liberty.
Ron Paul would have been a president that the people could have counted on. This alone would have made a positive improvement in the lives of the American people. Imagine for a moment a non-corrupt gov't...you probably can't. He would not be war hungry and as a result we would have better relations with more countries. Our troops would respect the president of the united states. He would focus in the areas that our country actually needs work and be able to improve in and not be looking for the next fight all over the world, spending money that we don't have. He would have been a president that would have cut costs. current costs. And in turn much smaller gov't. it would be a Gov't that is not in our business, there would still be regulations, but nothing that we have today. The American dream would exist again. The FDA and Monsanto would be hurt and the American people would breath cleaner air, drink cleaner water and eat healthy food. Our health would improve and regulations would be lifted on possible cures that have been held back, that may actually cure or at least vastly improve peoples health conditions. For example people with cancer possibly...
this is just a few things that I believe would change. Not all, but too many of the wrong people are making a lot of money on the wrong things. I believe people like the president or presidential candidates are accomplices to this and this is disgraceful. This is just a brief idea of what I believe people like you stopped from happening.

Yes!

You should send this to poor "too late Greta" Asap.

How do you send things to

How do you send things to people like Greta?

Walk the walk

Dr. Paul doesn't just talk the talk, He walk the walk too.
Why are you so DUMB that you can not see this?
He is nothing like the two establishment clowns, they just don't have what it takes to have my support, therefore, I will NEVER be voting for the Romulan or Obummer....No matter how much you try to perpetuate FEAR, You MSM Hacks.

F*** Faux News and Greta and

F*** Faux News and Greta and pretending to show that she/they care about what the hell we think and our opinions! Sorry, but you lost your chance a long time ago.

she is just trying to get traffic on her website

she is not dumb enough to not know why the people like Ron Paul. she was probably told there are not enough people watching her show or reading her blog. everyone knows that Ron Paul subjects get the most comments. from freedom lovers.
