RON PAUL AUGMENTS HIS DOUBLETALK WITH DOUBLE BILLING

I have frequently criticized Ron Paul for his hypocrisy on a variety of issues. He claims to be a hardcore libertarian, for example, but has voted for government price-fixing under Medicare Part D. And, though he claims to be a deficit hawk, he never pulls his snout out of the earmark trough.  He also represents himself [...]

JEB EX MACHINA?

My column for today’s American Spectator discusses the sad state of the GOP race for the 2012 presidential nomination, and the need for a deus ex machina to save the Republicans from themselves: More than half of the respondents to last week’s AP-GFK survey said the President should be voted out next November. Nonetheless, he [...]

VIDEO: RON PAUL’S DEADLY ANTI-GINGRICH AD

This hits Newt hard on his global warming ad with Nancy Pelosi, his lucrative health care lobbying, and his numerous flip-flops on a wide variety of issues. The irony, of course, is that Ron Paul has also been guilty of serial hypocrisy. I guess it takes one to know one, eh? [ht Spectacle Blog]

RON PAUL: DOCTOR NO SHAME

My column for today’s American Spectator discusses the Texas-sized hypocrisy of Ron Paul, fair-weather friend to Ronald Reagan and faux libertarian: Paul has consistently represented himself as a principled libertarian, and never tires of reminding us that he is a physician whose medical experience has taught him to be wary of government intrusion in health care. However, [...]

VIDEO: RON PAUL’S HYPOCRISY

Ron Paul has released the following attack ad against Rick Perry, in which he depicts himself as a Reagan Republican and Perry as a Gore-supporting Democrat. Watch it and then I’ll explain how it exposes the essential hypocrisy of “Doctor No”: Did you notice how the ad shows shot after shot of the good doctor posing with Reagan [...]

RON PAUL: OBAMA IS NO SOCIALIST

At the SRLC, Ron Paul took his best shot at grabbing a headline by telling the crowd that the President is a “corporatist? rather than a socialist. Predictably, this claim was followed up by unfocused maunderings about the secret corporatists of the Republican Party and a few semi-coherent comments about the military industrial complex and [...]

THE MEANING OF RON PAUL’S CPAC WIN: NADA

A lot of people were shocked when the CPAC straw poll produced more votes for whackjob Ron Paul than for any of the other potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates. The results broke down as follows: So, does this mean that the people behind the conservative revival are a bunch of nuts? Nah. The portion of total CPAC [...]

SARAH PALIN ENDORSES RAND PAUL

Sarah Palin has endorsed Rand Paul, who is running for Senate in Kentucky, hoping to replace retiring Senator Jim Bunning. Paul’s web site says the endorsement comes with a generous donation. In a statement, Palin says she’s proud to support grass roots candidates like Paul. She also says that while there are issues they disagree on, they both agree [...]

RON PAUL QUITS: THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO BELIEVE

Yesterday, when I read that Ron Paul was going to pull the plug on his presidential campaign, I was skeptical. Turns out I’m not alone: True, Paul’s old website carries an obviously counterfeit message claiming Paul is ending his presidential campaign. But that site has clearly been hijacked by neocons and other dastardly demons determined to undermine [...]

RON PAUL: PEN YOUR DOGS

Ron Paul’s rabid supporters are still yapping and barking. And, unless their master brings them to heel, they’ll be biting John McCain’s ankles at the upcoming Republican convention: The forces of Rep. Ron Paul have been organizing across the country to stage an embarrassing public revolt against Sen. John McCain when Republicans gather for their national convention in Minnesota [...]
