I was very disappointed in the treatment of Ron Paul at last night’s FOX debate by the panel of questioners. He was treated with disrespect and I think it undermined FOX’s credibility in this presidential race. He was the only candidate where you could hear the contempt in the voice of the person asking the question. I have to say; it was disturbing.
I wish Ron Paul had a different outlook on foreign policy, because when I review many of his positions, he is right on target. He is on target with reduced size of government, scope of government, states’ rights, second amendment, and veteran care, strong support for military bases in this country, and a strong border security, and immigration policy. He is a sitting congressman and deserves respect, just like every other candidate on that stage.
I actually listened closer to Ron Paul because I was so irritated by his treatment from the panel. And if I had to go into a voting booth and only had the choice of Huckabee or Paul, I would choose Paul.
He has an air that he is a bit scattered and unstable, but I think that is because he gets such limited time in front of the media, so when he does, he has to hit all of his key issues. So I’m not sure anymore how “crazy” he is. I have to say, having run for office, and with a plan to run again as an underdog, I empathize with Paul’s situation. I would expect better of FOX and especially the panel that I have always had respect for until last night. They should probably apologize to Paul for their behavior. Just a thought…
