    Porker Paul preaches night and day against spending. Says we need to cut it out. Yet this hypocrite is a huge Porker. If this is his track record, then spending cuts aren't as big too him as he says. Taking even one dollar of pork goes against everything Radical Paul says he stands for. How can a man like him attack others, when he request more pork than this entire GOP field! This guy eat bacon for breakfast, ham for lunch and hotdogs for dinner!

    PORKER PAUL says, "Federal government read my lips NO NEW SPENDING, unless it's on my district, then please spend like a drunken sailor!!!

    His constituents pay scads of federal taxes...Is he just supposed to just let all that money be expropriated from his district and do nothing to get it back?

    So what is he supposed to do??? Just sit by and watch as the federal government overtaxes his district and then make no attempt to get back as much as he can??

    Just because he doesnt like the current system doesnt mean he isnt going to use it to help people the best way he can.

    Created this thread in 2008 - the webpage is gone but the numbers are true!!! Fun how time has changed I created this thread to attack Clinton back then. Anyways it was eye-opening to see how much Porker Paul requested on Pork for his tiny, rural, insignificant district. In 2008, 276 House Reps requested less than Porker Paul!!!

    So when anyone says Porker Paul is pure, true and honest. Point to the fact that requesting that first pork dollar and that first pork project goes against everything he stands for and preach TO US against doing!

    McCain approved $0 pork because it was wrong. And yes, if he is going to preach night and day against spending, then he should be requesting more pork than 276 House Reps. You realize he request more pork than than liberal Kunich!

    There is no way to sugar coat it, this is a hypocritical move!

    None of which refutes the fact that Dr. Paul's constituents pay millions upon millions of dollars into the federal beast....Is he just supposed to sit back and let his district get raped "on the principle of it"?

    Ron Paul's position on earmarks is that we should get rid of them completely, but as long as we're going to have them he may as well get what he can for his district because the money will be spent anyway somewhere else if he doesn't.

    You can view that as either hypocritical or sensible. It depends on one's point of view.

    Bullshit.

    McLame approved huge block grants to his state, to be doled out by the state house....That's not cutting pork, that's just shifting the responsibility for spending it onto someone else, then cynically claiming that you're against pork.
