In this pre-debate video, Cavuto was almost expecting to pigeonhole Ron with the whining liberals who are always complaining about the Bush 'tax cuts for the rich'.
When Cavuto asks him if he would rescind those tax cuts, here Ron tells him what he would do. He says if Ron expresses his views in the debates, he will create fireworks...
Let's hope Ron will be allowed to talk about his voting record with regard to tax cuts on June 5th.
Here is a petition to demand that Rudy debate Ron Paul ONE ON ONE on the issue of what so qualifies Rudy to be a security expert and what does Rudy know, or not know about foreign policy.
I suspect Rudy's foreign policy knowledge is lacking and just having been mayor at the time of the WTC attacks does NOT make him presidential material.
I hope this video with a message from Ron at the end will explain why giving that insignificant flea in the MI GOP any more blogtime is useless and unproductive.
Ron is 120% Republican, and according to FOX and MNSBC his post debate support was great and growing. He is #1 on YouTube of either party's candidates. Note that since the second debate, RG's mainstream polling points have dropped like a rock since (11% to be exact) and JMcC's points are at an all-time low. Ron has nowhere to go but UP.
Please do not waste anymore time on the man from the MI GOP!
Ron Paul's supporters have asked me to make a "correction". I replayed the tape and what he actually said versus what many (including myself) perceived he said is different. Here is an excerpt from their letter:
If he truly stands by his original post - that it wasn't about Paul but about the field being too large, let him submit a new petition asking everyone in this most recent poll who is getting 1% or less to not be allowed in.
In short, the so called 3rd tier candidates have had their chance to make an impression and if they cannot poll beyond 1 or 2 percentage points of support, they are simply getting in the way of the real debate of how to move our party and our country forward.
I do not understand how people don't care about the sources of information anymore. This is falling right into the hands of the Mainstream Media and their desire to control what you think. Let's take the debate and the issue of why we were attacked. Dr. Paul clearly asked Guiliani if he had read either the 9-11 Commission report or the fatwa that Bin Laden penned. (Forgive me for thinking it is important to know why someone wants to kill you.) Rather than debate with facts and that little used skill set anymore, critical thinking, Guiliani attacked Paul with emotional rhetoric. Let's look at the facts:
The Chairman of the MI GOP has given up on trying to censor Ron Paul.
With only 14 signatories, his petition did not get very far...
I spoke to a woman who denied they want Paul out of the debates. I reminded her that the MIGOP blog entry by Saul called for it, and it was not Saul, the private citizen, but Saul the state party chairman calling for it.
She said she would forward my comment.
I also called my county GOP office, and they denied knowledge.
He posts around 8am daily.
Wednesday he called for Paul's ejection from the debates.
Thursday he said he was getting positive response.
Today, nothing about it.
Lets make sure he and the Michigan GOP realize we won't go away without a response, and that if anyone doesn't belong in the debates, it is those who aren't for the republic, nor for anything remotely republican.
I wonder if their fax machine is out of paper (since the other means of contact seem to be disconnected).

From http://blog.lewrockwell.com/ that is also following the mysterious telecom problems in Michigan:
Thanks to Allan Juranek, who recommends this archived link for sending email to the Michigan GOP. You can also email Saul's right-hand man (Saul himself being out of town) at email@example.com.
The archived link (which isn't active in this copy but is at the original site) is merely a different cache so should be disabled (the submit will go to an page unavailable message) like my google cache link.
Call Saul Anuzis Home/Office: 517-394-9940 and politely let him know your views.
Let us know if anyone answers and what they say...
(Contact Links revised II Below) He called to bar Ron Paul from the debates. They never call to bar big-spenders, abortion holocaust supporters, guestapo-your-papers-please republicans, but want to bar the only honest, uncorrupt politician in Congress. Anuzis should resign. Or be thrown out. I will actively do everything I can to stop anyone from contributing to ANY republican campaign except Ron Paul's until this idiot is ejected from the party, and you should do so too. (I was neutral on the GOP before this, but if they tolerate him, I can no longer tolerate them).
The Drudge Report is currently carrying an article about the attempt to keep Ron Paul out of futre GOP debates.
This is a petition that will be sent directly to the RNC to oppose banning Paul from the debate.
Sign it and let America know that Ron Paul's message needs heard.
