That's awesome, I'm sure he just gained thousands of supporters with that interview.
Chris Wallace is one program I do watch. He hits everyone he interviews with hard questions without regard to their Party or views and lets them respond fully. Not many on the air who do that anymore. That is a good thing for Paul. I think Wallace has one of the largest audiences out there.
Ever since that "top tier" comment of his, I've always been extremely skeptical of his intentions. But to be fair, I feel the same way about every MSM reporter because I think they're all controlled and they all have an agenda.
I watch CNN about the same amount as I watch FoxNews, but they just don't have an interviewer like Wallace. I've liked Wallace since he Moderated Meet the Press. I know he has won multiple Emmy's and a Peabody.
That's epic! I just looked it up because I had to see this: I just gained a lot of respect for Wallace.
One of my favorites was when he asked Michelle Bachmann are you a fake. That is the first question he should ask all politicians in fact.
Yeah in this interview he let Paul talk and talk and talk without interruption, it was good stuff.
I wish there were more interviewers like Wallace who lay their Party aside and do their jobs. Just as important, he lets them answer his questions.

no one dies in this country from lack of ability to get health care they die because hey did not get to a health care professional quick enough or a doctor did not see them quick enough in the E.R.
Most county hospitals simply write off the people that never pay as charitable deductions there is no such thing as not being able to receive medical care in America. There is such a thing as not having access to insurance or the proper kind of insurance and this problem would go away if people boycotted the insurance companies and boycotted the universities that which charge hundreds of thousands for medical degree's. We have a lot of problems in our system that can all be solved by the people but they simply do not have the time or patience to care these days about the real problems.....
Stop saying ignorant things...
The survey, released Monday, indicates that 27 percent of Republicans nationwide support Perry for their party's nomination, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who's making his second bid for the White House, at 14 percent. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin follows at ten percent, with Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani at nine percent, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who's making his third bid for the presidency, at six percent. Every one else listed on the questionnaire registered in the low single digits.
Take Palin and Giuliani out of the mix and listing only the announced candidates, and the poll indicates Perry with 32 percent support, followed by Romney at 18 percent, Bachmann at 12 percent, Gingrich at seven percent, Paul at six percent, and everyone else in the low single digits.
If Perry fails to implode and continues to surge in the polls, Romney eventually will have to go on the attack — an assault his advisers say will commence “at a time of our choosing.” Romney strategists are quick to note that in his book, “Fed Up!,” Perry writes that “By any measure, Social Security is a failure” and calls the program “something we have been forced to accept for more than 70 years now” that was created “at the expense of respect for the Constitution and limited government.” Look at what happened to Paul Ryan when he proposed a plan to save Medicare, they say. Romney’s campaign will argue that Perry is against the very idea of Social Security and Medicare, and that he will use Perry’s book to scare seniors in early-primary states with large retiree populations, such as Florida and South Carolina.

Well, obviously my position is that Ron Paul is a decent human with a huge number of flawed ideas. He's also in a party which I consider to be the worse of two evils... and h's also unelectable nationally and won't get his party's nod...
but other than all of that... go Paul.
