So I have been doing a lot of research, reading newspaper articles, blog posts etc, about Ron Paul’s response to the question asked by Santorum and Blitzer on 9/11. And I think I have arrived at one of the core concerns that the "main street" people have about Pauls answer regarding the cause of 9/11.
I think to the uneducated common voter, Paul comes off looking like he is JUSTIFYING 9/11. Like he is JUSTIFYING the killing of 3000 American civilians.
If the attack on Ron Paul from Santorum about Iran is a sign of things to come (much like this latest attack from Santorum about 9/11 – SEE this), then what should Ron Paul do? How should Ron Paul deal with such attacks?
Simple: “Address it and Move on.”
I came across this video regarding the petty fighting between the Kokesh camp and the RP campaign chairman Jesse Benton. it puts it in perspective, we need to move on. I see a lot of Kokesh supporters getting all bent out of shape, and it makes me sad that we let this stuff get in our way.
In the last several days I've heard multiple reports of Ron Paul or his campaign declining or not responding to media requests.
First it was CNN, then FOX and O'Reily, then the whole RT thing. Now it seems the New York Times needs to be included in media outlets that have wanted to cover Ron Paul, but have not been able to get what they need.
The NYT was doing a story on the candidates' positions on Libya.

Video: Jesse Benton On MSNBC 8/22/2011
Answer me.. Is he a friend of the family? How did he get to be the campaign manager?
It has come to my attention over the past 36 hours that something is out of sorts. The Good Dr.Paul was to appear on the Closing Bell and also an appearance with the Judge. Both of those came to pass with no Dr. Paul.
I just saw a bit on Faux that Ron Paul has been claiming being ignored by the media but turned down an interview with Bill O cry me a river on the Factor. Then news comes about with Benton snubbing Kokesh, not that I have any problem with that but it was done without tact. Not to mention the hacking incident the evening of the b-day bomb.

Adam Kokesh announced on his show tonight that this will be the last show of Adam vs. The Man, but didn't say why. However, he did say he interviewed Ron Paul on May 4th of this year, and since then has tryed numorous times to have Congressman Paul back on the show, with no reply.
