Attack dogs have finally been unleashed on Ron Paul. Those barking dogs caused Andrew Sullivan to Re-Think The Paul Endorsement
Time Magazine even launched a headline Paul Walks Away
No Need to Rethink Endorsement
There is no need to rethink endorsements. Here is the deal: Ron Paul did not say the things attributed to him. He denies them, disavows them, and most importantly, his voting record proves it!
Can anyone honestly tell me why things Ron Paul did NOT say over twenty years ago should be news today?
Paul Missed Best Tactic
How many times does he have to deny he wrote those things? Still, Ron Paul did not handle the CNN setup in the best possible manner.
This is what Paul said to CNN.
Why dont you go back and look at what I said yesterday on CNN and what Ive said for 20 something years. 22 years ago? I didnt write them, I disavow them."
That answer was perfectly fine, as far as it went. Then Paul walked out. It was a missed opportunity.
Rather than walking out, Paul should have followed up with ...
"I'm not here to discuss imaginary topics or things I never said. Now, do you want to discuss my position on the economy, on the Fed, and on spending, or is your only point to this interview to discuss things I did not say 20 years ago and have explained to CNN countless times?"
That would have smashed the ball down CNN interviewer Gloria Borger's throat, right where it belonged.
OK. Admittedly, Ron Paul did not respond in the perfect manner. So Ron Paul is human. Who isn't?
Is a transgression 22 years ago of something Ron Paul never said, and whose track record in congress proves it, any reason to drop support of Ron Paul?
In favor of who? Flip-flopper Newt Gingrich? Mitt Romney, the man that practically wrote the Obama Health-Care legislation? The Mitt Romney who wants to starts a trade war with China? Another Republican candidate that has no chance of winning?
If case you are a misguided Mitt Romney fan please consider President Obama and Mitt Romney are Nearly One and the Same!
Anyone "rethinking" their Ron Paul endorsement based on things Paul never said is not thinking clearly.
Attack Dog Plus Side
Here's the plus side to the attack dogs: Ron Paul is now considered a serious candidate or the attack dogs would not have been unleashed on things he never said 22 years ago.
Interestingly, The State Column reports Ron Paul still holds a lead in Iowa.
Thus, a majority of voters have decided that 22-year-old never-made statements are irrelevant, even if some misguided souls can't.
To quote Barney fife: “He’s a nut” end quote.
He now joins the long list of misquoted Republican candidates or candidates who were accused of saying one thing when they really didn’t. You can tell alot about a candidate in how well (or poorly) he or she handles such situations. I’ll be watching that closly.
Only true constitutional conservative in race...thats why the GOP doesnt like him.
Who gives a shit about RuPaul? He’s not even a Republican, let alone a conservative! Screw him and the drug addled horse he rode in on. Why can’t we just give this nutbag his walking papers? Do we have to keep giving him so much attention?
You like your statist. Ill like the conservative
I recently read Ron Paul’s Liberty Defined. He is correct on so many of the topics he addressed. He has integrity and is not swayed by public opinion polls. He stands for constitutional limited government. I support Ron Paul. I am grateful for the important ideas that he has introduced into the public forum during the debates.
Well, that's a magnificent lie. So I stopped reading the posted article from that point on. Because, really what's the point? Paul apologists (Paultards) are merely inconsequential cultists, severely lacking of brain matter.
“Only true constitutional conservative in race...thats why the GOP doesnt like him.”
Maybe they don’t like him because he’s a half-assed cross breed Neo-Libertican doofus that should be running on his own party’s ticket.
Only true “Constitutional conservative” my ass...
SOB thinks the USC is a suicide pact...
When do they let the attack dogs after Mitt? Oh yeah they won’t until after he has been forced upon the GOP voters by Rove, Will, McConnell, Krauthammer, and the Bushies.
I think the founders knew better than todays yahoos
Andrew Sullivan endorsed Paul? Even while he talks about his “friend” Joe Klein and says he is for Obama? In other words, Sullivan supports Paul as a way to cripple the republican party. I doubt he’s the only leftist to do so. RATS are well known for sabotaging republican primaries.
“You like your statist. Ill like the conservative”
You better look up the meaning of Conservative, Skippy.
Alot of what Paul says is good..however do you really want to let Iran develop all the nukes it can?
You think men like Washington would surrender to Muslims.
You Paulitards are just delusional.
