    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZRHa8GIYo4]Ron Paul 2011-10-23 Sunday Meet The Press - YouTube[/ame]

    This is what happens when you have someone that has true depth, that can answer questions and knows how to apply the constitution and our rule of law.

    I have watched the interviewer (David) and he is an asshole, I figured he would embarrass Paul and make him look foolish. To my surprise I got the feeling all of David’s attempts were cut short when Ron Paul seems out of the interviewers league due to understanding our problems, what cased them (specifically, bills, policies, years passed and who passed these policies) and where to go from here.

    This is my opinion of what I saw and I'm not someone to praise Paul unconditionally, in fact I usually hate hearing him talk because Paul is such a bad speaker, even if I agree with him. I also always assume Paul will say something that will get him in trouble, gaffs.

    I don't care to much about polls or straw polls. My point is if people want to elect someone they should be looking at their policies and what they want to do as President. Currently Cain is leading and most Cain supporters don't even know where Cain stands on the 999 plan as of today and Cain has a single issue Presidential Platform, 999...

    It seems to be true that you can't blame the politicians, you have to blame the voters because they are the ones that vote or the shallow stupid corrupted politicians.


    But i see your point, Paul wins a straw poll and "they" claim it's meaningless... Cain wins one and he is all of a sudden electable.

    Paul gives direct details about him position and a very detailed plan and is written off as loony.

    Cain give a 999 plan, or 909 plan, or he is not 100% sure if everyone saves money or is 84% of people get taxed more plan and he is #1!!!


    I use Cain because this is our reality atm.

    Whoever Fox or MSNBC supports at this stage of the game is exactly who should be avoided at all costs.

    And that would be "Gardasil" Rick, "Mittens", The "Hermanator" and Barry Soetoro.

    If anything this video shows why I stopped watching Meet the Press.
    It should now be called "Meet the Jerk".

    After Tim Russert died the show has become fluff for the left and non apologetic accusatory spiked gotchas for the right.
    Watch the video and watch how Gregory frames the questions and then never follows up when Paul makes a good point.

    Yea its not the same. He was awful when he first took over but I have noticed him being a bit more targeted in his questions to the left. He did attempt to corner Hillary once today. Surprised me.

    Yup, and that is what I meant by saying RP seemed out of that guys league. David couldn't follow up because Paul gave information (bill's, policy and dates) as to why and how we got in the mess we are in, well beyond the interviewers personal journalistic ability.

    What I mean to say is, the interviewer prolly felt if he tried to do a follow up attack, it would be him that latter would be criticized for talking out his ass with no real direction mixed with a lack of ability to understand the answers that were given to him. Instead we should just assume this interview will be ignored as it prolly didn’t go as planned.
