Here's the thing. What if it was being actually produced by someone else regarding political news related to Ron Paul, thus the "Ron Paul Political Report." That would explain him not having the control or knowledge of it.

I'm not saying that is the case, but it is plausible.

*update*

OK I just saw the thread about the RP worker, which confirms my suspicion that it was something done by an individual removed from Dr. Paul. He did not write it and should not have to take responsibility for something someone wrote without his knowledge or consent.

As I've been saying: integrity.

We can keep going back and forth like this until Ragnarök. With respect to Paul, my point remains that the fact that a newsletter like this could be published for ten years without him realizing what is in it is critically irresponsible, and I don't think he has addressed that particular issue. I'm not accusing him of being a racist because he hasn't said anything to that end.

With respect to the polling, Luntz' groups are heavily influenced by instrument error; by virtue of being subject to such close, televised scrutiny they think about things differently than they would if they were watching the debate in their own homes. I have done political polling so I am familiar with their methods and techniques. I can say that the focus groups on television need to be taken with a grain of salt. But do I think they're intentionally trying to sabotage anything? You'd have to prove that.

With respect to the text message polls, I have addressed those on this site in the past. They are not scientifically valid because there is no control over the sampled population. All those polls show is that Paul's supporters are more likely to answer phone text message polls. You can’t draw any scientifically valid conclusions about the greater universe.

With respect to the debate, I thought Paul's answer to the 9/11 truth question was pretty poor. His answer to the electability question, on the other hand, was really good. I didn't come away thinking that he was a big loser. But I didn't think he was the big winner. In a sense, it is hard to pick a winner because Paul has such different ideas; of course his supporters are going to think he won and those supporting others are going to think he lost. They're predisposed to their opinions.

NAACP president: Ron Paul is NOT a racist - prisonplanet.com...




Hopefully this breaks out into more mainstream media, and hopefully the NAACP will step up and endorse Ron Paul.

So, I guess all this talk about Paul being a bigot and a racist is... BS. Like we didn't know that already. perhaps people are barking up the wrong tree?

0% from the ACLU? tsk, tsk.
