Here are the highlights of the recent debate for those of you who missed it, or if you just want to hear his answers again. This was a national
security debate, and that's one of his most attractive stances on issues that appeals to a huge chunk of people.
Yeah but I think Ron Paul had a good answer to that. Something along the lines of "We don't need a camera in every single household monitoring every
single person just so that we can prevent a crime", then he tied that into the Patriot Act.
It sickens me that every other candidate is pro-war and anti-Constitution.

Yea, I think RP set himself up for that one. Not one of his best moments.
Is it me or does RP always seem a bit nervous at these debates? He's quite the opposite when addressing people at rallies, town halls and even MSM
Maybe Dick Cheney is planting psionic mind flayers in the front row?
I think he's nervous because he knows that the clock is ticking and he has to convince the American people that all of the other candidates are
phonies. He's probably stressing about saying as much as he can in the window of time that's he's given. Have you ever been in a discussion about
something you're really interested in, and you get a little jittery almost like adrenaline is about to kick in? He could just be in the zone like
Or maybe he's a little camera shy, but I doubt that. Maybe Rick Perry had a gun pointed at him behind his podium lol

Probably right on the adrenaline running. It took me a long time before I could speak without fumbling at our company meetings. And he is speaking in
front of America and trying hard, like you said, to fit it all in.
Heck, I still love him and still feel he did a great job last night. And as much as it pains me to say it, kudos to CNN for giving him the time he
Hello friends. First time posting, long time visitor.
My favorite moment of the debate last night was when Dr. Paul talked about our involvement with Israel. I've never in my life seen a politician
bravely talk about our connections with Israel and Zionists like Paul did last night. The best part was delivery because he explains everything with a
common sense approach that even somebody with no political background could easily understand.
This has become my favorite segment.

The post debate commentators always used to say after the debates that Mitt Romney hasn't been successfully upstaged so he remains the 'winner'.
Here’s what a few various pundits had to say about Ron Paul and Mitt Romney’s disagreement during last night’s debate concerning whether there
are any actual “cuts” to military spending in the wake of the failure of the Deficit Supercommittee:
Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele: “Romney looked a little piqued at Ron Paul on the budget. I think Ron knows what he’s talking about.”
Red State’s Erick Erickson: “Ron Paul actually gets a great comeback at Mitt Romney and actually shows he knows more about the budget than Romney
on this point. Wow.”
Talk radio host Neal Boortz: “Go get ‘em Ron Paul! They aren’t cutting anything out of anything. Base-line budgeting. So right.”
CNN’s Roland Martin: “Rep. Ron Paul just schooled Mitt Romney on what’s happening on Capitol Hill. Paul is there. Mitt isn’t. Who do you
Washington Examiner/American Spectator’s Philip Klein: “Ron Paul smart to turn military cuts question into general rant about how Congress never
actually cuts spending.”
MSNBC’s Howard Fineman: “Ron Paul is dominating this debate! ‘They are not cutting anything out of anything.’ He’s right, of course.”
