    The worst part of these fiascos is the ruining of a another good English word, "debate."

    So let me get this straight - if President Paul is challenged by a world leader that might intimidate him Ron will simply go inside the White House - cover his ears and pretend no one is outside.


    Actually, I would like to see Paul and all candidates grilled by the Donald -.....

    When the going gets tough - the tough gets going....

    It is more than that. Paul has faced many people who are hostile to him. The issue is that a Presidential debate should be serious. Donald Trump is anything but a serious person. This would be like asking Jerry Seinfeld to do the debate. Trump can do what he wants, but it degrades the process by letting him be the moderator.

    So, you think Donald Trump is a serious political commentator? I have always thought he was a quack, but I also thought all the Birthers were quacks that were extremely irrational. He fed into that quack stuff, and I believe he is just another person who some conservatives like because they have fallen into the cult of personality.

    I have to agree with you. Donald Trump has no business handling a debate of this nature. Any republican that shows up has to be extremely desperate as their judgment has become clouded.

    Trump is at least as qualified to pose questions as a Wolf Blitzer.

    The unkind manner in which RP and many of his supporters react to a great many things does more to hurt him than help.

    I disagree with Wolf Blitzer, but Donald Trump is a quack.

    Is this "Above It All" RonPaul the same politician who in 1988 was hobnobbing/appearing with the likes of:

    "Paul is on the ballot in 47 states and Washington and has stumped in California 20 times, recently at a stellar fund-raiser thrown by "one-time acid guru turned New Age sage" Timothy Leary." "Minor Party Hopefuls, "L. A. Times, 22 Oct. 1988 p. 26

    ''I think this heat is getting into their heads,'' said Cornwell, a 37- year-old Atlanta rock 'n' roll lounge owner. Later he reduced the admission to $10 a head. Along with Leary, [Abbie] Hoffman and Means, Cornwell has scheduled appearances through Thursday by comedian Pat Paulsen, disc jockey Casey Kasem, anti-death penalty lawyer Millard Farmer, Indian activist Vernon Bellecourt, Libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul and fringe candidate Lenora Fulani." —"Alternative 88 Convention Attracts Few", Orlando Sentinel, July 20, 1988

    Youtube: Presidential Candidate RonPaul on The Morton Downey Jr. Show 1988

    Of course nowdays an event with Donald Trump is oh so beneath His Dignity as the future President LOL.

    And Ted Kennedy spoke at Liberty University with the approval of Jerry Falwell. Your point being?

    Paul has been consistent in his beliefs. You may not agree with him, but his candidacy is more on the issues than any of the other candidates.

    Has the format for this debate been publicized? In other words, how do we know it will be "a three ring circus?" I would think that Ron Paul and Huntsmen would welcome another chance to answer questions.

    These guys are admitting they can't handle Donald Trump. How hard would it be to put Trump in his place?

    "Sorry Donald, but I do not find your question to be credible and I refuse to answer it. You're fired!"

    Easy-peasy.

    It's the last Republican debate before the Iowa caucuses. About one week before the caucuses. I think a candidate would be a fool not to show up.

    It is a childish response by the both of them.

    I think Trump just wants attention. While I like some things about Ron Paul, I find the Ron Paul worshippers who act like he can walk on water, turn the water into wine, and then transubstantiate the wine into the blood of Ronald Reagan to be somewhat off-putting.
