You can't say you don't want to go to war with an oil rich Muslim country if you want to gain the support of conservatives. You just can't.

but at the same time, you're not going to win a general election with that stance.

The left has long accused Fox News of bias and spin.

Ok....I can do this....it's not that hard...ugh...I can do this...

The left was.....

argh...

right.

Rush and his ilk disgust me, they want perpetual wars as long as they can make other people fight it for them. It seems like the only deficit spending that the GOP and Teapublicans don't complain about is the dollars spent on bombing and killing people all over the globe.
I consider myself Tea Party, a Republican and a Ron Paul supporter in ''08 and now. Why? This Republican was sick and tired of all the deficit spending, bailouts, crony capitalism and all the politicians acting like RINO's. I have been sick of these never ending wars, entitlements and erosion of our rights in the name of security, except when it comes to securing our borders of course...then apparently security means something else entirely. Never mind that we are constantly told terrorists are coming across our southern border. If Iran is such a huge threat to us, why did the government let some 28 or 29 illegal alien Iranians go that were caught crossing our southern border?

I for one am done listening to the supposed right and the left. I don't like either of them. But bet on this, I'll be supporting Ron Paul again.

I'm beginning to wonder if I'll be labelled a terrorist, any moment now. I am much more afraid of our own gov't, then any foreign one.
Me too claud, me too.

Paul would be the most 'dangerous' Commander-in-cheif the USA could find. In last night's debate, Paul sounded like he was defending Iran. Bachmann got it right....Paul's answer was the 'most dangerous answer she EVER heard. Thankfully, only the 'paulites' are 'fooled' by that lunatic.

Here's the clip of the ignorant Paul

qualityguy: show me the IAEA report that says they are literally within months of having a nuclear weapon - show me. That's what the dufus in the skirt just said.

And another thing, how are we supposed to pay for yet another war? We are spending 25 million per minute, I just heard on Napolitano's program. That is money we don't have, it will have to be borrowed or printed, then passed on to the next generations as our gift to them - That is immoral!

Paul's comparison to the Cold War was apt; America was prepared to throw down with the USSR, but we didn't make the first strike...and we eventually won because of it. Bachmann, Romney & the rest can go jump in a lake.

no more spying from Afghanistan - isn't that the real reason we are there?

Spy Flights Over Iran
Iran told Afghanistan that future US drone flights launched from Afghan bases would be considered "an unfriendly act"


A day prior to Iran’s demand, U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta vowed to continue the spy operations over Iranian airspace, saying the operations were part of U.S. efforts to defend both Afghanistan and America and involve “important intelligence operations which we will continue to pursue.”
