They are now running scrolls and hammering the illusion that Ron Paul thinks that America is "responsible for 9-11".

The idiot box is droning the message, "Stay stupid America" "Don't look at any history".

Not surprising considering the military/industrial/complex owns our corporate broadcast media, for the most part, and is making a killing off of the occupation of Iraq.

2. Listen well
There is a nasty incestuous relationship between special interests, the politicians and MSM with several overlaps. MSM believes (I heard Tweety say it) that they choose who makes it in the primaries.

If they like a candidate he's not good for the majority of working people.

3. I was stunned at Hardball
they had these little toadies from the WashPost on, and
totally repeated the Fox news spin on the exchange, even
noting that the wild applause of the hand picked audience
was evidence of Rudi's "Reagan Microphone moment"-

totally ignored the inconvenient fact that Paul won the
viewer straw polls by a big margin afterward..

9. Ron did not say MIHOP.
He was arguing that America's history of intervening in the affairs of other nations, such as the CIA's 1953 overthrow of Iran's government was a major catalyst for the current situation in the middle east. Middle easterners are angry about these acts of aggression against them.

12. I read somewhere
Probably on DU that a Fox Noise poll had Paul winning the debate - and this was from their own feeble-minded viewers. At least someone who has an R in front of his name is telling the truth besides Chuck Hagel.
