I'll be watching though..

I personally like Herman Cain. I like Herman Cain because I LOVE godfathers pizza...

I'm a cynical bias SOB when it comes to politics...



You like a guy just because of the pizza he pays people to make? Really?

What about his job as CHAIRMAN OF FEDERAL RESERVE??!!?!?

From Wikipedia



He is a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the civilian board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.


Im sorry but a guy who helps create all the problems with our economy is NOT the answer


Holy crap...

First time hearing this myself. This is a scary prospect.

Another puppet being pushed into a key position perhaps?

What about the other candidates? We need to look into all of them and thier history and involvement with these known Establishment "institutions".

Good catch bro

Oh and for thos that said Ron Paul didn't have a 'WOW' moment, did you catch the part where everybody would wait for the ok from military leadership to make a decision about pulling out of the middle east? Ron Paul said he wouldn't wait for anybody, that HE IS the commander in chief and HE WILL make the decision to bring our troops back ASAP. He clearly distinguished himself from the other candidates with that. I just hope the people watching caught the importance of it.


I did. Very important point for people who doubt he is strong enough to be a commander in chief. The nice thing about Ron Paul is that he doesn't believe in having a weak military, on the contrary he believes in a strong military. He just doesn't believe we should be the policemen of the world or empire building or fighting illegal wars. Also note that he didn't have to think at all about that answer and in my opinion he looked a little taken aback at the evasive answer given by the others...'well I would wait on my generals'...

Its also very notable to point out that military personnel in 2008 donated more to Ron Paul than any other candidate. I'm sure that trend will continue in this election.

I like Ron Paul, like pretty much anybody else who thinks independently about what would be best for this nation. It's too bad though that the majority are still looking for a classic snake in the grass politician like Twit Romney, and think Paul is a fringe nut. Paul gave the only straight answers in the debate, everybody else skirted pretty much every question, yet the media pretty much ignored Paul (except CNN, AC had him on as his first guest) and declared Romney the winner. How do you win a debate, by dancing around questions without even answering them? It's too bad Paul isn't very articulate, he rambles and drifts off point quite a bit, which doesn't help his "crazy old coot" image much. We need to get him coached on how to confidently drill down on his answer, and not try and cram in a bunch of examples of why he is answering that way. I notice he will start to give an example, then before he gets to the point, he stumbles onto another one. Focus Paul, focus.

After last night's debate my vote, for now, is with RP. I think RP would fix this busted up country.

Romney would be my second choice simply because of his business sense and his moral ethics. I think he would bring honor back to the presidency.

GOP 2012 Hopefuls Take Stage...
Funny how FoxNews.com refers to Dr Paul as the "seventh contender on the stage". They really need to stop trying to downplay him. Sure he may have been the 7th, but he was put there on purpose. I think he is really the front runner and will be the GOP Nominee (positive thinking may help?
).

They have a "You Decide" link below their debate article. I voted Paul, and lo and behold, he leads the vote out of 14 options...like 21,000+ votes to Mitt's 9,000+. See and vote for yourselves I'd say.

Based on the way Ron Paul was treated during the debate, and the fact that all of the mainstream media outlets have basically ignored him post-debate suggests that someone is concerned about Dr. No making too much noise.

CNN did their best to keep RP from shining too much, and because of that I won't go as far to say he was the one stand-out candidate, but he certainly came off looking better than at least half of them yet he gets little to no mention on CNN, MSNBC, ABC or Fox in their recaps.

I suppose your proof positive is his haircut, teeth and yap... Him and Obama and their O'Romney care,
it ain't moral to bring people healthcares when you're sick.If you can't afford it, stop being lazy and get
a job, or thought about it before you got sick. No to O'Romney and O'Bama the socialisters, there is
no morality in forcing doctors to treat people who should have a better exercise and diet.

Is the average american as stupid as they're being treated here? I love the BIG gestures from the female; poor Ron Paul, he has too much to say and stresses about being the only one there to say it. No-one else actually answered a question.

Oh man, John King was so annoying. Every time he asked a question, and the person starts talking, he'd go ... buh buh buh.. uh, but, mmhmm..buh mm hmm. What in the world was that? It was so distracting.

I knew this would happen too. I can't help it, but I think Mitt Romney is the next "golden boy" who would pick right up where Obama left off.

being a liberal, i switched over to CNN to watch a brief snipit, and bachman was speaking at the time. within 3 minutes, and after 2 lies....obama hasn't created any jobs, obama raised taxes, i switched over to another channel.

i guess the GOP will just have to depend on the state governors that are republican, to use voter suppression laws to win votes this time around, as they already have passed laws to that affect, in maine and minnesota.

I see the one-sidedness has begun.

I went to Yahoo to briefly read some articles about the debate last night and wound up skimming through 2.

1 was all about Michelle Bachman and how she "stole the show".

the other was "Winners and Losers"

NEITHER article mentioned Ron Paul even once. Not ONCE!!

As much as I think Ron Paul is the right person for the job, he did seem a little bit fringe contrasted with the other candidates last night. I can see where the criticism comes from. However, I do think CNN and John King did their best to help that along. King kept interrupting him when he was trying to answer. He did that to everyone, but it seemed he was trying to shut him up more than the others.

I wish he would hire some coaches and PR people to get his delivery polished enough to become a strong contender. He has the right ideas, he just needs to get them across in ways will resonate with voters. You and I knew what he meant last night, but many people were left scratching their heads.

He didn't even answer some of the questions directly last night. He needs to answer the questions asked of him before he can get out his soapbox and go off on the issues he wants to cover. He definitely needs an imagesmith to work on him.

Exactly. The MSM is already cozying up to him as their pick. He's probably the most liberal candidate up there, regardless of what he says. Too bad it's all about grooming and how telegenic you are more than what your beliefs are.

If everyone watched the CNN Republican Debate, you will notice that everyone did not attack Mitt. Since he has a massive lead in accumulating a war chest, everyone else (except for Tim Pawlenty) was afraid to attack Romney. When Tim Pawlenty had Mitt against the ropes, over health care, the guy back down from a direct assault. It was a weak attempt to connect Romneycare with Obamacare.

Unless something drastically changes, Mitt Romney will become the presidential nominee. Herman Cain, Ron Paul, and Tim Pawlnety will battle for the vice president nomination. I am hoping for Herman Cain.
