Ron Paul Is Lying

By: inoljt,

Libertarian Ron Paul is doing quite well in the 2012 Republican primaries; he has taken third place in Iowa and second place in New Hampshire. Perhaps the greatest controversy that Ron Paul has run into is a series of newsletters published under his name. These newsletters are written in a racist and hateful tone.

Ron Paul has defended himself by saying that he never wrote or even read the newsletters. Here is one fairly typical interview of this  defense.

In this interview, the media has tended to emphasize the fact that Ron Paul abruptly walked away from the interview, although it seemed to be ending anyways.

What is much more interesting is to watch the parts of the video in which Paul specifically denies having read or written any of the newsletters. Specifically, look at 7:20. At 7:20, Paul says:

You know what the answer is, I — I didn’t read — write them. I didn’t read them at the time. And I disavow them. That is the answer.

Look at Paul’s body language when he’s saying these words. It’s fascinating. He refuses to meet Gloria Borger’s eyes. Rather, Paul looks at the floor. This is in contrast to the rest of the interview, when Paul does confidently meet the reporter’s eyes.

Ron Paul is lying.


Why Davis Matters

(crossposted at The Motley Moose)

I think by now we all know about the revelation that Rick Davis, intrepid McCain campaign manager, was also (through his firm) quietly on the Freddie Mac payroll as recently as last month. I've also seen some allegations that this just won't reach a lot of voters; that they won't care, that it won't make a difference.

My feeling is that this is a serious blow to McCain, and it's a blow that'll keep on hurting longer than some people think it will.

Why do I think that?

McCain and the Honor Code

LYING: Cadets violate the Honor Code by lying if they deliberately deceive another by stating an untruth or by any direct form of communication to include the telling of a partial truth and the vague or ambiguous use of information or language with the intent to deceive or mislead.

'nuff said.

Any thoughts?

There is nothing so great as the well conceived folly
There is nothing so sad as those who follow
In all that we do and in all that we say
Being deceived and deceiving seems to be the way

We may look up we may look down
But in the end the truth is all around
Take off the blinders and get a good look
The truth be told we are all getting took

Politicians may promise this, they may promise that
Nothing in their vernacular will save us from being lost
We follow like sheep the promises they make
Regardless of the outcome and the cost

There is nothing so great as a well conceived folly
There is nothing so sad as those who follow
In all that they do and in all that they say
Deception is their method and deceiving is their way.

Under Sniper Fire!

Seriously people, your candidate was never under any sniper fire, but the press sure is gunning her now for lying about it! Why is there not a single diary here concerning this? This is going to haunt Hillary for weeks to come.
