There were a handful of people booing--probably shills or idiots--with far more applause at the end. And that's amongst the right wingers. Imagine how the anti-war stance is going to play amongst the dems.

Really good article written after tonights debate calling out the media On how they are choosing the candidates for us.
GOP Debate not down to Romney and Perry



(CNN) -- There are times when even I want to round up as many members of the media as I can, put them in a Noah-type ark, set them off to sail and hope to never see them again. Watching, listening and reading all the media reports about the GOP nomination essentially being a two-man race between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry is the reason my blood is boiling. Here we sit four months before the first ballot is cast, and already my comrades in the media have thrown everyone else overboard and declared that the race is really between these two.

I don't think the situation was as bad as I originally thought it was


Thats the same as I thought to. When I first saw it, I was pretty taken away. Then after watching the youtube video of it a few times, it wasnt as bad as I first thought to.

Maybe she was looking at the Twitter questions coming in the live feed.

Or she could have been having auditory hallucations and delusions that God was speaking to her

Unless any of the other candidates has said different, Ron Paul is the ONLY anti-war candidate.  Hell, at this point the dems probably want him as their guy in the race.

Ron Paul is the only candidate. Some may try to skew their positions with carefully thought out wording like "I want to get us out of Afghanistan.....when it's beneficial and our mission is accomplished" or something like that, but he is the only candidate who has made his position completely clear: He wants to end the wars.

From everything I've heard, no other Republican candidate compares to his position.

Perry and Romney....are they related? They both look like Nixon's nephews mated with Bush's brother.

I love the face Paul makes at around 2:50 when Santorum says the jihadists hate us for what we stand for..and what we stand for is American exceptional-ism. You can just see Paul thinking that was such a cheesy flag waving, propaganda statement I can see him saying "oh brother" in his head.

By my math if you heard 72 boos coming only from Santorum supporters, then a few of them must have booed more than once.

What a surprise that tool Wolf Blitzer lied. Equal time indeed. Ron Paul killed it though, even with the couch war mongers and MIC shills booing. I wish though that I was his campaign manager sometimes. He shouldn't have went into the reasoning behind 9/11 at that venue. He should have made it clear that HE wanted to go after Bin Laden after 9/11 using special forces bounty hunters, and not 2 costly land wars, and left it at that. Those mental midgets aren't able to comprehend anything past their hyper nationalism.

Nice... the ending of the piece is pretty good as well..


If one thing 2008 told us with the election of President Barack Obama, it is to throw conventional wisdom out the window. Maybe the only way we do that is throw out all these professional Washington political reporters and commentators who make it more about them than the American voter.



If you add throwing out all of the lifers in Congress we, the American voter just may have something to look forward to in 2012

I agree with everything Ron Paul says until He blames the U.S.for al-qeada lunatics.

He never blamed the United States. He said our government and military should (and they should) share the blame because we are in countries that don't want us there.

He never blamed the U.S. he knows as well as anyone that we have lost the reigns on our government and wouldn't blame the people, he wants to put us back in control.

Paul was a 100% correct and Santorum exposed himself as another shill for the MIC.

It's pretty blatant now. There's no respect for the populace.

He doesn't blame the U.S. for the maniacs actions, he blames our government for inciting them, through our constant meddling. Ron Paul wanted to hunt them down after 9/11, using special forces bounty hunters (privatized, no rules of engagement). If Ron Paul had his way, we would have avoided 2 costly land wars and saved hundreds of thousands of lives all across the world. He would have had our enemies hunted down, while NOT making thousands of new ones.

Here's a video you should watch...www.youtube.com...

Has anybody figured out how many minutes each candidate got to speak yet? I'm interested in seeing whether Romney or Perry got more time to speak.

Ron Paul showed his true color when he stated that the United States "had been killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqi's" prior to 9/11.
WTF???? His whole rant about 9/11 made me sick!

This guy is truly a WHACKO! He proves it every time he opens his mouth about foreign policy.


Thankfully, Ron Paul will NEVER get elected.
