PLAISTOW, N.H. -- Ron Paul said the decision to exclude him from a debate on Fox News Sunday the weekend before the New Hampshire Primary is proof that the network "is scared" of him.
"They are scared of me and don't want my message to get out, but it will," Paul said in an interview at a diner here. "They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative."
Paul's staff said they are beginning to plan a rally that will take place at the same time the 90-minute debate will air on television. It will be taped at Saint Anselm College in Goffstown.
"They will not win this skirmish," he promised.
The Fox debate occurs less than 24 hours after two back to back Republican and Democratic debates on the same campus sponsored by ABC News, WMUR-TV and the social networking website Facebook.
Paul, the Republican Texas Congressman, was wrapping up his final day of campaigning in New Hampshire until the Iowa Caucuses on Thursday.
He spent much of the day campaigning at diners in Manchester and Plaistow and downtown walks in Derry and Exeter.

No need for his “message” to “get out” ~ whatever he says it is, his followers will tell us that it was something else right after he says it.
Fox News is pushing Rudy Guiliani, they’re not showing much of Ron Paul or any of the other candidates. Only reason Huckabee is getting airtime is because he’s the current polls leader in Iowa.
So RP is attacking Fox News, just like the rest of the left. Hmmm.
BTW, I’m scared of RP, too. He’s a dangerous nut job.
Are they really scared of RP, or do they think he might be beamed up to the Mother Ship and not be available to appear?
While I completely disagree with Paul on the war and other issues, I think his presence, as well as those of all candidates running, add something to the debates that is necessary - dissent, strong positions and defense of those positions and accentuated differences. Would allowing Paul to participate catapult him into the front runner? No, but debate is healthy and I hope Fox News allows Paul, Hunter and even Keyes to participate in their debate.
Never confuse fear with derision.
We mocked the Dems when they refused to go on Fox. Should we be less scornful when Fox refuses to air a candidate whose numbers show him in the pack? Warts and all, Paul should be on the stage with the others.
|I'm scared of you too Ron. A loony running for president. Used to be you'd only find those on the left.

I wouldn't vote for this guy if he were the only one on the stage.
Does Ron Paul take other cues from the gay movement?
“Fair and balanced,” my ass.
Because nobody has actually voted yet. After that starts, maybe he can get guest host spots on the View.
Ron Paul is a kook, but he is close to 10%.
He should be in the debate.
Ditto that. Rudolph specializes in post-event posturing.
LOL! After the way Paul embarrassed himself on MSNBC the other morning with Joe Scarborough, I’m sure FOX will be ringing him up to see if won’t come on and do his clown act for them.
