Gingrich: I wouldn’t vote for Ron Paul
He called the candidate’s views “totally outside the mainstream of virtually every decent American” and that the congressman couldn’t win because “people won’t take him as a serious person.” He added that he personally wouldn’t vote for Paul, saying, “I think the choice of Ron Paul or Barack Obama would be a very bad choice for America.
Headline: ‘Ron Paul wishes Israel didn’t exist’
Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul negates Israel’s right to exist, Eric Dondero, who served as a senior aide to the 76-year-old Texas congressman for over 12 years, said on Monday.

“So I come back from my weekend and I see this thread and I’m just plain disgusted by all of this circlejerk, fanatical, conspiratard, inter-party warfare bullshit.
You guys have zero respect for the rest of your “people.” This whole ‘if you aren’t voting RP, you’re a neo-con’ talking point is pitifully weak and over used. It wouldn’t be problem if it were here and there, but it’s damn near every thread that has some Paul cocksuckery going on. Anyone how objects gets slammed with little to no room for discussion.
So for at least until I’m bored with it, I’m going to be removing any new Paul-specific threads. You don’t like it, go to one of the many sub-reddits that are dedicated to his worship. Conservatism doesn’t revolve around Paul’s ideology, and for the people who thinks it does, I truly pity you. You should know, it’s a lot broader than that excessively narrow and hostile perspective.
Feel free to make up whatever conspiracy theories about me being paid for by the establishment, or call me a neo-con. It’s not going to hurt my feelings, nor is it going to change anything.”
Daily News: Ron Paul in racist newsletter flap
A blast from the past is blowing a big hole in Ron Paul’s campaign.
A recently surfaced video from 1995 shows the GOP presidential hopeful discussing controversial newsletters that he claimed this week he didn’t even read until about 2001.
The Texas congressman has come under fire in recent days for the newsletters, called Ron Paul’s Political Report, Ron Paul’s Freedom Report and the Ron Paul Survival Report, which went out under his name in the late 1980s and early 1990s during his time in and out of office. (Read more)
Mitt Romney surges in N.H., but No. 2 Ron Paul gets no media loveNew polling data shows Mitt Romney cruising in New Hampshire, with nearly quadruple the support of Jon Huntsman, the GOP candidate in third place. Wait, why’d you skip to the third place guy? Who’s in second? Texas Congressman Ron Paul, of course.
Even though Huntsman and Paul both gained the same amount (six percentage points) since the last Suffolk University poll in June, and Paul has 14 percent support to Huntsman’s 10 percent, Decoder isn’t seeing any media love being thrown Paul’s way this morning.
This, despite the fact that the canned, ready-to-be-quoted bit from the Suffolk press release gives equal billing to Paul’s improvement alongside Huntsman’s.
About Ron Paul, Huckabee states today to Fox News’s Chris Wallace: “He has a core of fanatical believers, and they don’t represent mainstream Americans. It is not okay for Iran to have a nuclear weapon.”
Huckabee knows well that Dr. Paul has never said that he thinks it is perfectly OK for Iran to have a nuclear weapon. As a matter of fact, being a true man of peace, he has many times stated that he does not want anyone to have nuclear weapons.
Al Sharpton Goes After Ron Paul WERE TALKING ABOUT RACISM & SLAVERY!!
This MSNBC coverage also discusses his supposed walk off from a CNN interview, even though it had been found that the walk off never happened. It was made to appear that way by fraudulent editing by CNN.
- “Iowa has voted for exotic candidates before.”
- “Huckabee, same thing.”
- “They’re [the media] watching a Mitt Romney New Gingerich runoff.”
- “If Ron Paul wins Iowa, we just take it out.”
Can the MSM pull the plug on Ron Paul?
- Donald Trump tweet: A vote for Ron Paul is a totally wasted vote. If he wins Iowa — bad for Iowa’s credibility.
- Huckabee refers to “fanatical believers.”
TPM’s Josh Marshall: On Ron Paul “He’s The Candidate Who Thinks Gays Should Be Executed”
I just found a great website, RonPaulFlix.com paying special attention to bias Ron Paul coverage.
Addition: Occasionally I tune into NPR to hear the latest propaganda. I just listen to NPR’s All Things Considered describe Mitt Romney as the front runner in the race. (4:30pm Dec 20, 2011.) Ron Paul is leading in the polls! They then cut to Perry talking about how Obama should have bombed Iran, and the rise of Santorum. No mention of Paul whatsoever.
