Yeah, umm, I can’t believe I used to like Ron Paul. He sounded like a desperate, frustrated old man.
Although in my humble opinion, Rudy merely feigned indignation to score cheap political points, Ron Paul showed that he is a class A jackass in regards to terrorism. He sounds more like Harry Reid than his self-imagined Ronald Reagan.
I only saw that clip. Ron Paul made a fool of himself and Rudy pounced.
I think Rudy got some points with the crowd, but Paul is right.
And we are talking about this part right?
But your average person does not want to hear that the actions of the United States contributed to the attack on 9/11.
Its must easier to simply say they hate us for our freedoms and then go bomb them.
But, the CIA agrees with Paul and not Rudy, and Osama even declared the reasons in his Fatwa back in 1996.
This is just silly. I think the average politically aware person understands that our refusal to withdraw from the world and let our enemies have their way gives them reason to attack us.
The average politically aware person also should understand that when a politician yammers like Ron Paul did in a public debate it emboldens the enemy.
This is a war that is being fought in the media as much as in Baghdad.
Any political candidate that tries to justify the reasons for terrorism in such a manner is a nimrod.
