SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton released the following statement concerning the CBS / National Journal Republican debate:
“Ron Paul consistently polls among the top three in the key early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire. He is polling in double digits in most respected polls.
“Congressman Paul is ranked among the top three in fundraising results.
“Congressman Paul serves on the House Foreign Relations Committee.
“Congressman Paul is a veteran.
“And, Congressman Paul has contrasting views on foreign policy that many Americans find worthy of inquiry and discussion.
“CBS's treatment of Congressman Paul is disgraceful, especially given that tonight’s debate centered on foreign policy and national security.
“Congressman Paul was only allocated 90 seconds of speaking in one televised hour. If we are to have an authentic national conversation on issues such as security and defense, we can and must do better to ensure that all voices are heard.
“CBS News, in their arrogance, may think they can choose the next president. Fortunately, the people of Iowa, New Hampshire, and across America get to vote and not the media elites.”

it is through the ignoring that we hear the most. silence speaks louder than words i've been told.
thanks CBS for proving once more to us in plain sight, how corrupt and apart of it you are!
something is wrong, or they would let him speak, he's running for president, show a little class.
Dear anybody at CBS that still gives a damn,
Ron Paul is third in fundraising
Ron Paul receives the most donations from active and non-active military service persons, more than double the entire GOP field combined.
Ron Paul currently polls 4th nationally and top 3 in key primary and caucus states
Ron Paul started the discussion on blowback, ending the wars, bringing the troops home.
And you guys thought it would be best to give him 89 seconds of nationally televised talk time between 2 questions? The least amount of questions and talk time even compared to candidates polling at the very bottom?
If that isn't biased and unfair, I don't know what is.
Let the people pick their president, we don't need them to be selected for us.

I would like this see this, I was watching on tv, didn't see him walk off but I saw some of the candidates toward the right gather together for some chatting.
