Ron Paul Provides 9-11 Wackery At Republican Debate
Reminding us once again of the difference
between small-l libertarian ideas and Big-L Libertarian craziness:
"They attack us because we've been over there. We've been bombing Iraq for 10 years. ... We've been in the Middle East," Paul said in explaining his opposition to going to war in Iraq. "Right now, we're building an embassy in Iraq that is bigger than the Vatican. We're building 14 permanent bases.
Predictably, the delusional kooks over at 9-11 Blogger
are griping that Paul didn't get asked the same questions or get the same amount of camera time as the real candidates.
Fox News is clearly worried about the recent national success of Ron Paul. They begin the debate, by inserting the false notion that candidate order has a place within their format. They state that the order of the candidates on the stage is random. This statement while possibly true, is completely irrelevant if all candidates are not asked the same question, in order. By asking specific questions, in a non linear order, Fox News negates the importance of order all together. Yet they state that it is random, as if it matters in this format. Is that fair or balanced?
Recent national success of Ron Paul? Yeah, he's pressing Mike Huckabee for 9th place.
Tancredo gets a good line in:
Tancredo took another shot at fellow GOP candidates when he said he is surprised at the number of conversions toward his tough position on illegal immigration as well as abortion and gun control.
"I trust those conversions when they happen on the road to Damascus and not on the road to Des Moines," he said.
My longtime blogger buddy Gayle has more on Ron Paul, although obviously I don't endorse her comments on Senator McCain
. If you're going for electability, I would think McCain would be your man.
