Fred: “...We need to count on the Fred...”

He could not have been more violent if he had walked across the stage and snapped L.Ron’s neck.

ROFLMAO

- Ron Paul will get unhinged at least once. Oh, and if there’s an online poll afterward, he’ll win it by a gazillion percent to zero.

And...The PAULERS and the PAULETTES, will be in full force calling C-Span's Washington Journal tomorrow morning !

“Speaking of Lurch and Obama, did anyone get a comment from the Breck Girl about why he was passed over by his former soul mate?”

You do realize that Breck lost the race for Kerry? I mean Kerry did not lose on his on, we all know that.

I don’t have much of a problem with Ron Paul in re: his economic theories. It’s his isolationism and so forth that messes him up for me.

Fred is up. Mentioned 5% umemployment used to be considered full employment. He seems to be meandering. I’m surprised he isn’t more organized. He had time to organize his answer.

I’m disappointed in him for this answer—until he mentioned making the the Bush tax cuts permanent. He should have started with it.

Fred is fantastic, hitting the temporary tax rates expiration point, and other economic policy points, in logical order, and a good narrative. Looks very good.

I think you have to be careful with that. If you listen to Rush, you’ll notice how he talks about “emotional connections” people have made to candidates.

As of now, I’m just going to keep asking them “What are you going to do now?” every time it becomes clearer that the honorable men - Fred and Duncan - just aren’t going to make it.

I think we need to have some empathy for them. It IS sad that Fred and Duncan didn’t break through - whatever the reason.

“Paul thinks we are in a recession. He just Failed a Jr. High School economics class, and he thinks he is smarter than the others on economics.”

He didn’t say that - he was talking about the housing market specifically.
