Ron Paul set to storm NH GOP debate

And I say it’s high time for him to lay into them. CNN is practically encouraging Paul to make the fur fly:

“I told you so”: At this time four years ago, Ron Paul was a minor candidate, at odds with his own party, who was running a presidential campaign on a shoestring budget. Times have changed, and so has Paul’s status in the GOP field. Instead of polling in the low single digits, he is now in the mid- to high-single digits, is raising money at a healthy pace, and is no longer considered a fringe candidate.

What happened? Well, his message seems to have resonated beyond his eclectic group of supporters made up of young adults, anti-war activists and libertarian-minded Americans. He says the country is embracing his views, especially his opposition to the wars and calls for U.S. troops to leave Afghanistan.

Tonight, Paul will be the same Paul that stood on this same stage in Manchester four years ago, except this time, he has more support and more money. But his message will be the same — and don’t be surprised if he says “I told you so.”

And a lot more, the fur will certainly be metaphorically flying in Manchester tonight as the official candidates take to the stage. Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Herman Cain will “debate” while Ron Paul will again smack some Constitutional sense into the public (the debate organizers have excluded Gary Johnson, which is a dark cloud that shouldn’t hang over a modern political debate and really just shames CNN).

According to a recent poll, a mere twenty six percent of us in Americaland support military actions in Libya right now, another big war with another big price tag, which is becoming really expensive politically to boot. I’m sure Joe Unemployed will be happy to hear at least Ron Paul is getting some airtime to tell them the damn truth about it how it’s being paid for on the backs of the middle class, because you know none of those other nitwits is honest enough to break it down and pull away the curtain (and Sarah Palin is simply not even smart enough to connect the dots, much less verbalize it adeptly, but thankfully will not occupy the stage).

I was planning on bootlegging a stream off of but I have a feeling the cease and desist trolls are in high gear today and everyone without a cable box will have to use CNN’s live stream.

Out of curiosity, I found myself browsing through their video segments showing off the debate stage assemblage and various preparations (this is show business, after all) and found them actually boasting a shot of their production bus toilet. CNN just wants to show that they are so dedicated to making this live debate show come off without a hitch that their engineers aren’t allowed to walk more than twenty feet to poop. That’s called business efficiency.

Anyways… yadda yadda yadda, on with The New Hampshire GOP Debates 2011 sponsored by CNN and Charmin™ I’ll be sure to let everyone know my thoughts in the aftermath and possibly during. I may or may not be drinking, but I will be on a drug called Charlie Sheen.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. Tell your family members about Ron Paul. You can be passionate and
    zealous, but make sure to make a calm, logical case for him first. I
    have a lot of relatives that still get their news from the mainstream
    media, so they had no idea about Ron Paul. After they heard a bit
    about him and saw his voting record and knew the reasons behind his
    votes, most of them loved the message. Remember, it’s the message. And
    register Republican for those primaries! Ron Paul 2012! Restore the

  2. i feel confident that ron paul will once again set himself apart from the rest-pandering and spouting party line BS may still grab the attention of some but feel many americans aren`t going to fall for that garbage anymore-hopefully the awakened will outnumber the sleeping this time around

  3. Ron Paul is the only candidate with credible integrity and skills to be our President.  He won the debate hands down.  Not once have I have heard him having to back track on his beliefs as he has always been consisitent.  He tells the truth.
    He has my vote.

  4. Constitutionally, legislatively, and morally,
    Ron Paul has no equal. His 22 year voting record speaks for itself.

    Mr. Paul has not survived in politics for 22
    years and maintain the ethics and morality he has by being anything other than

    If You refute the above comment, then I please
    invite You to listen to him speak about key issues. It is amazing how well he comes across
    because he doesn’t have to remember lies like other politicians.  He understands what is happening in the world
    and knows how to apply the basic principles of liberty to achieve the real
    change that America so desperately deserves.

    American to American we are all on the same
    team. So I present Mr. Ron Paul as my Candidate for 2011 and invite anybody to
    meaningfully and respectfully debate why he is not the best for American and
    its people in 2012.

    Ron Paul = A real change, not for special
    interest, but for America’s Interests!

    Thank You for Your time
