LOL @ this guy.
I'm sure his cult followers and fans will find some crappy conspiracy or excuse.

If he runs away now wait till Obama gets to him.

In 1996, Paul told The Dallas Morning News that his comment about black men in Washington came while writing about a 1992 study by the National Center on Incarceration and Alternatives, a criminal justice think tank in Virginia.

Paul cited the study and wrote: “Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”

“These aren’t my figures,” Paul told the Morning News. “That is the assumption you can gather from the report.”

Nor did Paul dispute in 1996 his 1992 newsletter statement that said,”If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet of foot they can be.”

You support Ron Paul?! That is just...mmmwaaa! Perfect!

Heh, Ron Paul! There's a genius. Yes, Dems are terrified of Ron Paul. We're shaking in our boots.

Kinda close to the Jeremiah Wright Incident.
In which Obama got the blame for the really stupid things his pastor said.
Now Paul was more directly involved in his incident and his followers think it's not fair, and they come up with these really bad excuses?

"How dare you! If you try to use my words as proof of what I said, you would be lying!"

Sorry Ron, Newt Gingrich tried that defense too.

Actually, they become more relevant to independents considering voting Republican.

Right now, Obama can nail pretty much every potential candidate to the cross on family or moral issues.

Not a good thing when you are the party of "family values", especially when one considers Obama comes across as quite the family man.

What I find ironic is that the same people who were crying foul over questions about Sarah Palin or Herman Cain's King Henry VIII-esque sexual past, or Newt Gingrich's game of rotating wives think this is all fair and grand. The double standard is disgusting.

I'm glad you and the media have such a great time trying to tear down the one honest man left in politics. If Ron Paul doesn't win the nomination I hope you enjoy 4 more years of Obama. I only pray that America can avoid full out collapse for 4 more years.
He's been answering these questions to who? His constituents in Lake Jackson, Texas? To the media frenzy that surrounded him when he used to garner .02 percent in previous election cycles?

No, what's disgusting is the double-standard you Paul supporters have.

You need to tell Paul to pull up his panties and grow a pair.

So now apparently trying to go for the edgy and "sensationalist" bit in an interview by pressing someone for a non-issue topic they've hashed over and explained why it had nothing to do with them for years now is "being a good journalist", according to this piece. And even though the newsletters aren't his, it's still appropriate to headline them as his newsletters.

This is a sure sign that Paul is moving into the limelight and Democrats see him as a real threat to be Obama's challenger (whom he would stomp): They've got the media blasting this guy at every turn.
Why would Democrats be scared of someone WHO POLLS 16 PERCENT NATIONALLY!?!?

Of what specifically? What has he done that is clearly racist? Do you have anything at all in the past decade to show or just this claim by a guy who brings out the same tired race card every election?
