Ron Paul on the Tea Party Convention

Friday, February 05, 2010

Right now the center of attention for politically frustrated conservatives is Nashville, Tenn., as the Tea Party Convention rolls on to day two. But back in 2008, the Ron Paul for President campaign was the magnet of libertarians who felt left out of their party. We ask the Texas Congressman what he thinks of the Tea Parties, and what future he sees for them. 

Guests:

Ron Paul

UPSET
What are you talking about?
I didn't hear anything near what you assert.
Mr. Paul, of whom I am a BIG supporter, was not interfered with at all.
I will just assume that you are an idealist, and this didn't fit with your ideal.

I am thinking back to when (I think it was) Leno made a joke about Hillary Clinton ... how Democrats had a "Run, Hillary, Run!" bumper sticker ... but Republicans were putting it on the front bumper. With Sarah Palin, we have the opposite ... Republicans are saying "Run, Sarah, Run" and the DEMOCRATS should put that on THEIR front bumper ...

Palin, like Potatoe Quail before her, is a sad menace.

Just a thot.

Your Readers might consider joining our new Centrists Group at Linked In and might like to look at my new blog for and about Centrists, The Rest of U.S.

Extremists have become so loud, they’re deafening. And because they shout in perfect sound bites, the media birddog their every rant, however irresponsible or outrageous.

But we believe the political tide’s about to turn with a vengeance. No matter their party affiliation or lack thereof, Americans are disgusted with those who harass to harass, obstruct to obstruct, tear down to tear down. Compromise, consensus, bridge-building, and respect for differing viewpoints have been the hallmarks of American life as long as there’s been an America. We’re certain they will be again.

If you like it, please circulate to your family, friends, and colleagues. Or perhaps to your favorite extremist!

I listened to your interview with Congressman Ron Paul, and I was very upset with the way your reporter conducted herself. It was evident that she was personally not in agreement with Ron Paul. Instead of remaining neutral, like professional reporters do, your reporter was huffing and puffing into the microphone. Furthermore, the interview ended abruptly while Congressman Ron Paul with talking. There was no courtesy "thank you for joining us today", it was just an abrupt end, which was offensive to my ears. As a result, I am no longer listening to your show!
