Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh: "Ron Paul puts on the Tinfoil Hat"
Posted on 12/16/2011 3:18:22 PM PST by seanmerc
Here is Ron Paul in the debate last night. This is Bret Baier. [SNIP] Bret Baier: "Congressman Paul, many Middle East experts now say that Iran may be less than one year away from getting a nuclear weapon. Now, judging from your past statements, even if you had solid intelligence that Iran, in fact, was going to get a nuclear weapon, President Paul would remove the US sanctions on Iran, including those added by the Obama administration. So to be clear: GOP nominee Ron Paul would be running left of President Obama on the issue of Iran?"
PAUL: You know what I really fear about what's happening here? It's another Iraq coming! It is war propaganda going on, and we're arguing... To me the greatest danger is that we will have a president that will overreact, and we will soon bomb Iran -- and -- and the sentiment is very mixed. We ought to really sit back and think and not jump the gun and believe that we are going to be attacked. That's how we got into that useless war in Iraq and lost so much in Iraq.
RUSH: Now, you may have astutely noticed that Ron Paul didn't answer the question. So Bret Baier, after the applause died down, said, "Congressman Paul, the question was based on the premise that you actually had solid intelligence as President Paul" that they got a nuke. We're not talking about being on the come. "I'm asking you about solid evidence they've got one, and yet you still at that point would pull back US sanctions -- and, again, as a GOP nominee, be running to the left of Barack Obama on this issue?"

Maha Rushie is the greatest; however, I can’t get on anymore — try as I might.
I ask this all the time.
Bachman nailed it last night - the most dangerous and uninformed foreign policy ever conceived since Neville Chamberlain.
Yes, Rush thought that Bachmann got back into the mix with her performance in the debate last night.
I don’t get it either. He is certifiable.
Just when one begins to take him seriously he pulls out his ‘Prison Planet’ lifetime membership card and Illuminati decoder ring and grins like he’s listening to angels.
She also looked amazing.
But back on topic - Paul is the new LaRouche. He’s crazy, and his supporters are both fanatical and insane.
While I’m certainly not wanting a war with Iran, its nuts to think that there is no problem there. I just don’t know what needs to be done about them aside from nuking them first.
Anybody who thinks a war between Iran and Israel would stay between the two is an idiot. Its like saying that Hitler’s war was none of our business.
I agree. Bachmann did good last night. I think she will be rising again.
I just looked him up on Wikipedia. I didn’t realize that he’s 76 years old. Wonder how come the media hasn’t dwelled on that like they did with Ronald Reagan.
Just curious were any WMD’s actually found in Iraq? Do we really have iron clad intelligence coimg out of Iran?
Sane people have known for a long time that Ron Paul is loopy and shouldn’t be taken seriously. What bugs me is that the guy has so much support. According to polls, Ron Paul is in the ‘top tier’ of the GOP presidential nomination candidates. That’s ridiculous! I suspect that when actual votes are cast, Ron Paul won’t do so well. His statements on the Fox News debate (good moderators) should end the fantasy that this man is a serious person, except, perhaps, in his own mind. Frankly, Ron Paul is just taking votes away from genuine candidates that, whether you support them or not, are at least rational about the very real threat to Israel, the U.S. and the world from a nuclear Iran.
Because at least one third of Americans are idiots and have brain nerve damage that cannot be repaired.
