There were two moments in the debate, and both belonged to Ron Paul.
The first was Rudy's grandstanding. No solution, no information, just some "we're right no matter what" stuff ignoring reality. That has been commented on and will act like a trebuchet to bring Ron Paul into view.
Let them laugh, when you hear the whole exchange, you know who knows foreign policy and who is utterly clueless.
Ron Paul will be on The Situation Room with Wolf 5/16 at either 4pm Central or 5pm Central. My mom just talked with Ron and he said 5pm, but he was in Washington, D.C. (he didn't want to miss a vote, so he flew back at 5am) so that could mean Eastern Time.
In Tuesdayâ€™s GOP debate Ron Paul pointed out the obvious when he said: â€œThey attack us because we've been over there. We've been bombing Iraq for 10 years.â€
Dr. Paul is no doubt speaking of the wildy-unsuccessful Iraqi sanctions and the Clinton bombings of Iraq during the 1990â€™s.
There are quite a few reasons to support Ron Paul.
1) He is in two nationally-televised debates. Do you think anyone with a remotely anti-government message will be in any future debates? EVER? This is a truly rare moment when someone with capitalist views has time to speak freely.
2) He has credibility. He has a perfect voting record and well-written articles to back him up. Just drawing attention to this can be very eye-opening to a lot people.
Every once in a while, an opportunity comes by that is too great to pass up. Supporting Ron Paul is one of these opportunities.
By now youâ€™ve probably seen and heard that Dr. Ron Paul did outstanding in last Thursdayâ€™s GOP debate. How often does a true libertarian/conservative get to take part in nationally-televised debates? Truthfully speaking, this chance might not ever happen again.
WMUR-TV is the major NH television station that will cover and carry the June 5th New Hampshire GOP debate at St. Anselm's College.
I have started a group there and hope we can get NH residents and others to sign up and support Ron.
Here is the URL: http://ronpaul2008.gather.com/
The name of the group is NH 4 Ron Paul
We need NH photos, videos and articles for Ron's political page here:
We are ramping things up here in NH, plotting and planning for Ron and clearing the way for debates, radio programs, interviews, and other appearances with many coalition groups.
A commenter gave me an idea. While we are concentrating on early states like NH and their local groups and shows, national shows like Noory's on Coast to Coast would be a great way to get the message out to all the states. Ron can simply call in from wherever he is.
Here is how to do it..please be nice...these folks interviewed Pat Buchanan many times on his way to winning the NH Primary..
With Ron Paul in St. Paul, and his moniker of Dr. No, I think this is another good twist. Hopefully to the knife in the side of pork.
The 2007 First-In-The-South Republican Party Presidential Candidates Debate will be televised live by FOX News Channel at 9:00 PM from the University of South Carolinaâ€™s Koger Center for the Arts on Tuesday, May 15, 2007. FOX News Channel Washington Managing Editor Brit Hume will moderate the debate and FOX News Sunday Anchor Chris Wallace and White House Correspondent Wendell Goler will ask questions of the candidates.
This news is from a fan who noticed that web traffic to the Ron Paul site tripled after the debate, while visits to other GOP candidate sites dropped precipitously.
Although the Paul site has only been operational since March, the recent volume closely approaches the highest visit counts to the Giuliani and McCain websites and is currently five times higher than the major candidates.
ABC news has finally admitted to Ron's showing of support in the debate with this article here:
If you read the ensuing commentary, you will see that savvy Paul supporters do not buy the idea that one guy with a computer voted 80,000 times!
Let's hope FOX NEWS understands that they will not get away with any hanky panky on May 15th...
John McLaughlin is one of the most respected commentators on TV today. In his opinion, which you will hear at the end of this video, Ron gave the best performance in the debate.
Is it any wonder? It's easy to give a good performance when you are honest, sincere, convicted and correct!
So, let's review our successes:
