You'd be surprised on how old people can hold their own.

back in 2006 my pops (who was 70 @ the time.) was mugged in the backyard by 4 males. He stabbed one with a trowel, and fended off the other three... and my pops is 5'5 180lbs....

as i said, dont count an old man out... he may look frail and vulnerable, but he might be able to kick yours good!

Except that's not exactly true. Ron Paul says he wants abortion left up to the States/People to decide while at the same time he writes the Sanctity of Life Act and will immediately take the issue out of jurisdiction of the Courts, which incedently is where the People brought the issue.

I think it's priceless that the Pro-War, Pro-Death penalty "goon" (whoever said goon first in the thread described him well), is getting in the face of the non-interventionalist. Then the other "bring our troops home," compassionate type is trying to break up the fight! That picture is worth more than a thousand words, what a coincidence, or not. You might notice that Paul and Huntsman are not being aggressive, but you can be sure they are not thinking about backing down. True pacifists don't like to hurt others, but they themselves are rarely afraid of getting hurt themselves. And they WILL protect the ones they love, and people in general. They just don't have this, "Kill them all" attitude that so many people like Perry have.

And all these anti-tax tea party people who are pro-war. I want to ask them how do they expect to pay for any of these wars that they love so dearly if they don't pay any taxes?

I think the Ron Paul supporters will have a lot to like about Huntsman, he is actually rational and wants to bring the troops back from Afghanistan which is a no-win situation and a land that has never been conquered and never will be.

I'm glad I'm not Ron Paul, I think I would have clocked Perry a good one. Shouldn't there be a non-contact two foot distance rule? Keep your hands to yourself Perry!!!

That isn't legit motive. She still partied all she wanted.
It was an accidental death due to negligence that she tried to cover up. It's the prosecutors and detectives fault for going after the death penalty and using trumped up charges. She served her time and is deservedly free.

Exactly, where is the footage of these exchanges?

I hope they get released at some point.

True...But maybe she didnt want the burden of raising a child?

Since when is the death of your child - through negligence, and then hiding it up, wothy a mere 4 year sentence??

She deserved life in prison at the very least.

Though, this explanation is probably more plausible then she killed her child. But, hiding it up without feeling any grief, or pain, is absurd. It takes a special type of person - a socipath, to not be stricken with feelings of guilt and shame/

Personally, if my child died because of my own negligence, i would think myself as deserving of some measure of punishment.

But, if i HID the death of my child? That at the very least warrants a life sentence and possibly even the death penalty.

Sick girl.

It will be fascinating to see just how they try and spin this to say it's anything but what the pictures seem to clearly show. Perry is very aggressive and it's being kind to say he's invading Paul's personal space. Dr. Paul looks like he's just in a touch of shock while thinking "Is this REALLY happening in front of national media cameras?? Really??". This is really one of those off the cuff type moments we so rarely see of the candidates but that speak volumes for the brief glimpse they give. Incredible..... I am glad these pics are out and spreading so quickly.


Isn't that what you guys are doing here? Spinning the picture to say things it clearly doesn't show? I mean really, physically reprimanded? Ron Paul is making a fist? About to get a beat down? There's nothing in the picture to support any of those sensationalized claims.

Touching someone's wrist hardly qualifies as physically reprimanding them. You guys are letting your personal bias influence what you see. If you already perceive Ron as the underdog and Perry as a thug you are going to see this as an altercation about to happen. But someone looking at this photo without preformed opinions about Ron Paul or Perry would just see two people discussing something they are obviously passionate about. "Dr. Paul" doesnt look like he's in shock, he looks like he's listening intently.

Laying your hand lightly on someone's wrist can be done to get their attention, to show you are passionate about what you are discussing, or even as an intimate gesture. We have absolutely no idea what they are discussing, there's no reason to read violent overtones into the photo that aren't there.

[Sidebar: Ron Paul hasn't practiced medicine for almost 40 years, nor is he running for a position related to medicine, so why do people keep referring to him as Dr. Paul? It is a faux pas to refer to people by defunct titles, especially when they are succeeded by later titles of more prominance (Congressman). It is entirely unrelated to his political career and just comes across as petty.]


Ok Akahole. You did not mention the finger wagging in the good doctor's face. The looks and grabs alone would be enough for some one to draw a fist for protection. If you are going to "attempt to make a point please include all the variables instead of just the one to prove your point.

"YOU GET YOUR LIVERSPOTTED HANDS
OFF MY BEAUTIFUL DR. PAUL!!! HE'S A SAINT!!!"



Had to be done. But in all seriousness, this further proves Dr. Paul's point. Perry is a condescending child. When was the last time you put your hands on another adult while you were having a debate? The man's finger is less than a foot away from his face!

I think Huntsman is related to Cheney and yes it was weird to hear Perry say the word "Keynesian". They are blatantly using snippets of RP's arguments and philosophy and diluting them back into the status quo. Their tactic is, to quote someone else, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em". I also noticed a lot of coughing from the others when RP was speaking. Also the forceful hand gesture by the dumbass bald guy moderator when Paul asked to finish his sentence.

Here's a Washington Times article about the confrontation:

www.washingtontimes.com...


At one point when the video cameras weren’t rolling — though the incident was caught by still photographers — Mr. Perry walked over Mr. Paul’s lectern, took hold of the congressman’s wrist and wagged his finger at him. A spokesman for Mr. Perry said Thursday it was a policy conversation, not a heated exchange.


Why of course a "spokesman" for Perry would say it wasn't a heated exchange. He better say that unless he wants to see Perry's political career assassinated.
