LOL! You're a sucker for punishment, Wordsmith! You're also hilarious! Today you were the only one who made me laugh out loud. Thanks. :)

LOL :-) You come up with the most awesome titles!!

Rush was saying today that the tape was totally full of DNC talking points. You think that would wake them up but I'm sure it won't.

LMAO, good headline.

Paul is on the wrong side. Though it is about as close to a Rep/Dem debate as we will see for a while.

I'm going to test this 'Ron Paul' thing - see how many flock to it. lol.

The thing is, I always liked Ron Paul. We disagree on a few things but our disagreement over the GWOT has led to irreconcilable differences.

Well....I'm disappointed. No Paulbots in this comments thread. Maybe they finally got a clue, and realized I'm mostly "funning" them in a post like this, just to get a rise.

skul,

Thanks for continuing to check in. I may have one or two more RP posts in me; but I'm almost burnt.

gayle,

Glad to provide the entertainment. Yes, I've been getting punished. (Remember, FA is a mid-high traffic blog and I cross-posted these there).

I just got home, and there are some sincere comments over at FA that deserves a response. But I'm pooped. It's a lot to sift through for me.

dee,

Thanks for that; you've mentioned it before, and I do love coming up with titles. Sometimes I'll have a post finished, but won't publish because I'm not happy with the title.

The thing is, I always liked Ron Paul. We disagree on a few things but our disagreement over the GWOT has led to irreconcilable differences.

monica, his foreign policy position is the thing that disappoints me the most.

I will acknowledge that this, sent to me by a friend who is a RP supporter, is something that I thought was cool to hear about:

Ron Paul votes against awarding gold medal to former president Ronald Reagan and for a very logical reason.
Filed under: Presidential Race 08, Ron Paul — admin @ 7:08 pm
” * Mr. PAUL. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in opposition to H.R. 3591. At the same time, I am very supportive of President Reagan’s publicly stated view of limiting the federal government to it’s proper and constitutional role. In fact, I was one of only four sitting members of the United States House of Representatives who endorsed Ronald Reagan’s candidacy for President in 1976. The United States enjoyed sustained economic prosperity and employment growth during Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

* I must, however, oppose the Gold Medal for Ronald and Nancy Reagan because appropriating $30,000 of taxpayer money is neither constitutional nor, in the spirit of Ronald Reagan’s notion of the proper, limited role for the federal government.

* Because of my continuing and uncompromising opposition to appropriations not authorized within the enumerated powers of the Constitution, I would maintain my resolve and commitment to the Constitution–a Constitution, which only last year, each Member of Congress, swore to uphold. In each of these instances, I offered to do a little more than uphold my constitutional oath.

* In fact, as a means of demonstrating my personal regard and enthusiasm for Ronald Reagan’s advocacy for limited government, I invited each of these colleagues to match my private, personal contribution of $100 which, if accepted by the 435 Members of the House of Representatives, would more than satisfy the $30,000 cost necessary to mint and award a gold medal to Ronald and Nancy Reagan. To me, it seemed a particularly good opportunity to demonstrate one’s genuine convictions by spending one’s own money rather that of the taxpayers who remain free to contribute, at their own discretion, to commemorate the work of the Reagans. For the record, not a single Representative who solicited my support for spending taxpayer’s money, was willing to contribute their own money to demonstrate their generosity and allegiance to the Reagan’s stated convictions.

* It is, of course, very easy to be generous with the people’s money.”

Every single thing he spewed sounded like the Liberal Talking Points!

That Ron Paul opposition speech you posted sounded just like Davy Crockett's opposition speech to awarding a pension to a widow...

I didn't think Ron Paul should be included in a Republican debate in the first place, and now I'm certain of it. He's about as much of a Republican as my dogs are cats.

Way to hit the nail on the head my friend. Of course Paul would say that this video was blow back from UBL getting CIA help.

What a moron!

Ron Paul reminds me of the phrase "target-rich environment." To me, he's almost too easy to shoot at; he and his disciples aren't even remotely sufficiently challenging. Hell, they can't even defend themselves -- they don't possess the requisite mental fecundity.
