So why does the media keep focusing on this? Because Paul has accomplished nothing while in office. What legislation has he written that became law? What leadership positions has he filled? Did he lead or participate in any negotiations with the opposition? Show me where Paul can say "I did (...)".

As far as I can tell, all he's done while in office is introduce a bunch of bills that went nowhere and shill some newsletter he's now disavowed. It's one thing to have good ideas, it's quite another to turn them into reality. If he doesn't like the way the media is treating this, I'd like to see how he handles Putin or Aljamenihad.

Ron Paul has been in office for 30 some odd years.

You are free to look up his record yourself.

This "look up his record" response seems to be the Paul supporter's reply to whenever someone challenges his (lack of) accomplishments.

I did. I didn't see anything substantial. Tell me what I'm issing.

Because he's the best man for the job, head & shoulders above the liberals that both the DNC & GOP are producing. You either love this country or hate it. If you support liberals your hatred of us is clear.

Ron Paul Newsletters: Ad Urging Subscription Warned Of 'Race War'

He might want to actually find the truth somewhere, instead of running through a convoluted gibbering story that is contracted by recorded history...and seemingly every time he opens his mouth. i know truth is irrelevant to true believers, but this is getting almost cartonnishly funny
You are referring to his investment newsletter which was different than the other newsletters.

Someone stamps his name on a newsletter and you call that his signature????

I know the truth is irrelevant to supporters of the status quo but your post is rather cartoonishly funny.

According to you the only leaders are the ones who pass bad legislation since we've had plenty of that. Why support failure?

So instead of blaming your Congresspeople for continuing to support failed policies like going into Iraq under false pretenses and passing the Housing Bill that destroyed the economy, you spin it to say Ron Paul blew it because he couldn't change the mind of losers.
How about you ask yourself "why continue to support the failures of the status quo"? How about you ask yourself "when are you going to wake up and smell the coffee"?

PS: Gloria Borger is the CNN reporter.

This is a total conflict of interest! Her husband's firm includes overseeing a coalition to support congressional funding to parts of the U.S. Military! All of these "journalists" seem to be profiting from these wars!"
I agree CNN is as partisan as Fox. I distrust them all. They are owned by banks and corporate interests only. Their agenda does not represent the people, who are fed up with partisan bs and bailouts.

And swing and Indeps are going for Paul.

Who said I was a Ron Paul supporter?

He has been in office for 30 years. And has worked as a medical doctor for many more.

You are free to look up his record just as anyone else.

If you don't approve of his record so be it. I don't particulary give a crap.

What is free and liberating about laws?

Freedom & Liberty does not come at the stroke of a pen.

Laws restrict our freedom & liberty.
Ron Paul is for Freedom & Liberty.

Do you see the conflict?
