CNN summarized to their subscribers exactly what would happen in their staged debate. It was a debate between Perry and Romney with 6 other supporting actors.
The CNN e mail: "While the ongoing battle between front-runner Rick Perry and Mitt Romney will take center stage, six other Republican presidential candidates will try to gain ground in polls and fundraising in the first-ever CNN/Tea Party Debate at 8 p.m. ET in Tampa, Florida.
Okay, here is a short list of post debate polls:
From the LA Times Dot Com Blogs:
Ron Paul, long a darling of such gatherings such as the one in Tampa on Monday, was roundly booed during the CNN/Tea Party debate for suggesting that American foreign policy helped contribute to the Sept. 11 attacks.
Paul was upbraided by former Sen. Rick Santorum, long a hawk on taking on radical Islam on a global scale.
"You said that it was our actions that brought about the actions of 9/11," Santorum said. “Congressman Paul, that is irresponsible.”
Watch the Debate Live!! 8pm EST
Created by my good friends Sean Wheeler and Shelli Crouse. Great Job you guys!! This is a superb video!
Yesterday afternoon September 9, 2011 at about 3 pm Central time if I remember correctly, I was channel surfing when I came upon a CNN broadcast about the Tea Party. The Tea Party is the new populist political movement that began during the 2008 presidential campaign of Ron Paul which touts freedom and liberty including taxation and government intrusions into our personal lives.
Do you feel disenfranchised? The only presidential candidate that is truly anti-war is ignored, insulted, and completely marginalized by the media!
The Reagan debate and the media coverage following the debate exemplifies the blatant manipulation that is occurring to completely disenfranchise us.
As they increasingly rob and parrot Ron Paul's ideas, how can we make it clear that all the other candidates including Obama are Neocons? That only Ron Paul is not!
Congressman Paul’s Letter
As a lifelong Republican, it saddens me to have to write this letter. My parents believed in the Republican Party and its free enterprise philosophy, and that’s the way I was brought up. At age 21, in 1956, I cast my first vote for Ike and the entire Republican slate.
Why Ron Paul Endorsed Chuck Baldwin in 2008:
Discussing why Congressman Ron Paul, after dropping out of the 2008 presidential race, endorsed Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party. Articles, such as the latest one from AlterNet.org, attack Paul for endorsing Baldwin rather than John McCain or Bob Barr. Ridiculous attacks such as this needlessly distract people from the consistency and principle of Ron Paul.

Sometimes I think you get better news coverage from people who are reporting outside their main fields. It's as if they feel it necessary to be accurate and not trust the sources.
The Romney facade is crumbling.
Since everyone and his brother (Romney, Palin, Bachmann, Perry etc) has decided to call themselves "Tea Party" types, it's time for the ORIGINAL Ron Paul founders of the modern day Tea Party to put forth a platform of TRUE Tea Party philosophies.
And hold these imposters accountable to supporting this platform if they continue to use the name "Tea Party" in their campaigns.
I'll start here with a few platform bullet points.
1. I believe all foreign aid to every country is unconstitutional and I will work to abolish it.
Kansas City Star - Commentary: Rick Perry, Ron Paul and a Tea Party. Paul's Supporters Organized the First Tea PartySubmitted by rp311 on Sat, 08/27/2011 - 12:18
So much for that predicted epidemic of "Texan fatigue."
Gov. Rick Perry leads by double digits in the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, according to one poll due today. But that's not the most surprising news.
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul has tripled his support in Iowa since the 2008 election and has pulled into contention nationally alongside Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann, based on the Iowa straw poll and a new Gallup Poll.
