    Ron Paul Calls Out Herman Cain For Lie Over Fed Audit During GOP Debate



    "But now that we have found and we have gotten an audit, we have found out an awful lot on how special businesses get bailed out -- Wall Street, the banks, and special companies, foreign governments. And you said that you advise those of us who were concerned, and you belittled -- you say call up the Federal Reserve and just ask them. ... Do you still stick by this, that that this is frivolous, or do you think it's very important? Sixty-four percent of the American people want a full audit of the Fed on a regular basis."


    Cain said that, in fact, he didn't oppose an audit, and that when he served on the Fed it was a different institution. "You have misquoted me. I did not call you or any of your people ignorant. I don't know where that came from," he said. "You've gotta be careful of the stuff you get off the Internet."


    A careful check of the Internet, however -- guided by the Paul campaign -- turns up audio of Cain saying just what Paul accused him of saying. As recently as 2010, long after the Fed began engaging in the lending Cain says he opposed, Cain belittled those calling for an audit.


    "Some people say that we ought to audit the Fed. Here's what I do know. The Federal Reserve already has so many internal audits it's ridiculous. I don't know why people think we're gonna learn this great amount of information by auditing the Federal Reserve. I think a lot of people are calling for this audit of the Federal Reserve because they don't know enough about it. There's no hidden secrets going on in the Federal Reserve to my knowledge," he said.

    The republican party is going to hang themselves. If the tea party does get behind this guy they're fucking retarded. Republicans should be smart enough at this point not to vote for a former Federal Reserve regional bank chairman.

    A big part of this movement on the right is about challenging the Fed on how they've treated the dollar and spent our future generations' tax dollars on choosing winners and losers in the so-called free market.

    Go ahead and choose a guy who used to play a direct part in that. You deserve what you get.

    Once again, we see it.

    Paul can barely string two coherent sentences together. But the audio does not establish that Mr. Cain said "just what Paul accused him of saying" in any event.

    Saying that we don't need ANOTHER AUDIT or a Commission because we have other problems that need more urgent attention is not the same as outright opposing an audit.

    And you know: Mr. Cain was speaking at least a little common sense. If you REALLY want to know something, you can START by ASKING.

    If it then turns out that you don't GET the answers you have been seeking, you are then on different ground. Maybe THEN an audit, an investigation or a Commission might be in order.

    But the babbling and often incoherent Ron Paul has his own problems. Being a racist is not a good thing, Doctor: The Ron Paul Survival Report: FAQ: Ron Paul and his Racist Newsletter (Updated)
