Ron Paul Cowers Away from GOP Debate Primary

From Captain's Quarters:

Every time we suggested dropping Ron Paul from the national debates, his supporters would go nuts. They claimed in the one instance where he did get dropped, the January 3rd debate just before Iowa, that a grand conspiracy existed to keep his message from the people and to stop the 4% revolution. They demanded boycotts of Fox and of the Iowa GOP. Paul himself complained bitterly about his exclusion, and not without some justification.

Now that Paul's focus has returned to his own Congressional race, he seems much less enthusiastic about debates. After declining to hold a debate with his primary challenger, Chris Peden, Paul got asked yesterday about this seeming hypocrisy at a town-hall meeting in his district. Check out Paul's predictably hysterical response:



Like I said before, I do not endorse Chris Peden, a candidate who might actually be competent at pushing through the GOP Agenda. However, a loss for Ron Paul would be highly amusing. The Paultards campaigned for months and months on a platform of "change." Well, be careful what you wish for.

I'm paraphrasing: "He [Peden] gave me the strongest endorsement. 'Ron Paul a man of principle who supports the Constitution'. If he no longer supports the Constitution, then he needs to debate with himself".

He's turned into Petulant Paul the Prophet of Paultards...

Ron Paul's response that his opponent has to provide an explanation of what there is to debate is complete bullshit. First, the premise is that there is no difference in their positions, and that is nonsense or Paul is just a liar about his crazy positions. Second, Ron Paul never gave an explanation of what there was to debate when he was excluded.

Remember when Paul's crazy supporters chased down Hannity at night in the snow like a lynch mob screaming about Paul's right to debate?

What a fucking hypocrite!

Gee, I wonder if the release of those copies of Ron Paul Newsletters may have something to do with his reluctance to debate.

Chris Peden should just hammer him on those newsletters until he finally tells the truth about what he knew about them, who wrote them, and how complicit he was in them.

2 for 1! He loses the presidential election and his congressional seat! In the same year!

Hey, if he loses his seat it will be the fault of the "MSM" again for not reporting him... as if!
