You guys can bash Paul all you want but that doesn't change the fact that hes the only guy up there with a pair of balls. Everyone of the other republican candidates left are a bunch of political pandering pussies. No **** RP isn't going to win, how long did it really take for you to come to that conclusion? I'm going to assume, if i may, a while. At least RP has principles that he sticks with, no matter what the others think of him. Its quite sad when you watch a debate when the other candidates are literally laughing at the only guy up there speaking form his heart. The laughing and mocking that the other candidates preform should tell you a lot about their character...

ZING! What exactly does the president do in terms of controlling the economy?

You know nothing about Romney's character. And if thats the only thing you're going by to vote this year you're just like every dumb american down south, they vote on character not their credentials.

Did I say I was voting based on character alone? And nice generalization about southerners, how witty of you And character should have some sway in one's vote. Would you vote for a junkie/murderer if he was well qualified for the job? Of course not



and no I'm not implying that Romney is a junkie and/or a murderer. I thought I might have to clear that up because there is no doubt you would have inferred that.

I believe that is scar tissue as he's had surgeries on his face/neck area relating to cancer.

Its just amazing how everyone dismisses Romney as just another fake conservative? The man just lives and breathes fiscal responsibility, doesn't that mean anything in the economy we have now? Everything that he's touched that was in the red now has a surplus.

Doesn't anyone understand that the backbone of our country is small and large businesses? Capital is what drives our economy forward. He may just walk the walk and talk the talk, but Romney more than anyone supports small businesses and wants to stimulate those small businesses. I don't hear any other candidate talk about small business.

Sure it does, there is no doubt Romney knows his ****, hes worth half a billion dollars for Christ's sake! However his views on social issues and on foreign policy are what turn me off personally.

hey hey hey, harsh overgeneralizing statements are no way to make yourself look like any less of an asshat. I would hope that people could see through geographic location determining IQ at this point but I guess I'm giving the average joe a little too much credit.

Next time, when you have a thought, say about calling an entire geographic regions dumb, do the rest of us a favor and just let it go.

I agree it was completely unfair. Ron Paul was cut off from answering, given very little time to answer and mostly just ignored. Same with Huck, but to a lesser extent. A very biased and two sided debate.

However, when Paul did speak....diarhea of the mouth. He never made any sense, just throwing out a bunch of slogans and rambling statements. I swear Cooper was rolling his eyes at every Paul response.

Ideologicaly I'd agree with Paul, but our country isn't ready yet for a constitutionalist.

He doesn't make sense to the average american, Thats his problem. Trying to connect to the average american and getting them to understand his ideas and concepts will be a obstacle to overcome. To me it seems like he seems like he is the only candidate making sense at all, it might be diarrhea to you but its gold to me.

Since Legacy Wins never answered these questions/comments, maybe you can.

And as far as eliminating MA's deficit he do so through fee hikes and the closing of tax exemptions, which is essentially raising taxes. Additionally, a surge in capital gain taxes reduced the deficit to $1.3 billion.

So Romney's accomplishment really isn't as grand as he makes it seem.

Additionally during Romney's administration Massachusetts's labor market was under performing.

Frankly, for someone using this as the crux of their campaign, I'm not impressed.

Ron Paul was has nearly 30 years of experience with economics. College Credentials has nothing to do with economic understanding. Ron Paul is endorsed by some of the most brilliant economic minds of our time, and has worked alongside legends of monetary and fiscal conservatism like Ronald Reagan and Berry Goldwater Jr. He speaks for the middle class and those who are affected most by the income tax, and pushes for a return to the gold standard so our money actually is worth something. He stands up to Ben Barnanke and the federal reserve when nobody else will. He knows the results of an over-inflated economy and is the only one trying to prevent it from happening here.

What has Mitt Romney done other than run a thriving private business and raise fees for on his people? Private Business=/=Governement fiscal policy.
