    Well--if you want to see someone get real nervous about a question--regarding a radio interview the previous week--watch this video of Ron Paul trying to explain why he disagreed with going into Pakistan to get Bin Laden---:lol: His response is SOOOO BAD it is almost incoherent.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDm6yaPf27Q]Ron Paul on going after Bin Laden SC Republican Debate Fox 1/16/12 - YouTube[/ame]

    And here is Newt Gingrich's response to Ron Paul

    I agree Ron Paul didn't do a good job getting his point across, but that doesn't mean he wasn't right. The way Obama handled the situation should've been the last resort rather than the first but if you want to join Newt in defending Obama's failed diplomacy be my guest.

    This is exactly why I can't support Paul. As much as I love his domestic policies, and I do love them, his naiviness on Islam is too much for me to support.

    The mere fact WE were in S.A. by treaty for Mr. Paul was enough for the radical Jhihadists to go after us according to Mr. Paul.

    That is absurd.

    Last resort? Are you serious. Negotiate with Pakistan, then OBL gets tipped off and he escapes! Obama did it right. Only wrong thing was disposing of the body!

    And what of his comment that he was killed the wrong way?

    WHAT were we supposed to do? ARM him first to give him a fair shot?
