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.
1) He's accomplished plenty in 30 years
2) That he hasn't got as much under his name just shows that his views are outside the establishment of the current 2 party system. As the 2 party system has been shown to be an utter failure, I fail to see how this is a bad thing. Oh wait, it's better that we get fed more of the same crap we've been getting our whole lives, right?

Did he really think this newsletter scandal wouldn't come up?

I hadn't heard of this until just recently, so a LOT of people will be asking questions that SHOULD be answered.

The obama campaign would have a field day with this.
Wow, we agree on this one. Like you, I had not really heard of this until just recently and yes, he better address this now or the Dems will do it for him. Not good idea to simply say I have answered the question and that is that, it may work at some levels it will not when running for the Whitehouse.

And don't you think that if you had to REPEATEDLY answer these ridiculous questions that you have already answered for 20 years!!!!!!! that you wouldn't get upset?

Much like those of us who have to repeatedly debunk the b.s. lies here on C-D and how annoying it becomes, and tedious and just plain out boring as hell, we've only been doing it for a couple of months.

This guy has been answering this question for 20 YEARS!

Where have you been that you haven't heard of these?
Most of us have not been following Pauls career for the last 20 years, just because some of you have do not expect everyone else to. Jeeeez.
It was news to me also and I pride mysef on stay up with what is happening in our government. Paul needs to address the issue, because if he does not and he somehow gets the GOP nomination the Dems will use it against him in a Big way, believe me it would do major damage if not addessed and put to bed now.
