Supreme cult leader and whiner extraordinaire, Ron Paul, Libertarian/Republican from Texas, who was twice defeated miserably in runs for president, has continued the whiny performance we saw in the debates he participated in during the 2008 campaign.
Paul, know for blaming America for the terrorist attacks against our country during those debates, continues blaming America for the latest but thwarted attack on Christmas Day.
Asked by Larry King on the December 28, 2009 show about the thwarted attack on this past Christmas Day aboard NWA Flt 253, Paul whines in response, “One thing that is missing here is never asking the question what is the motive? He said why he was -- he did it. He said it was because we bombed Yemen two weeks ago. That was his motive.”
Once again, Paul blames America for terrorist attacks against us.
Apparently Paul whines more than doing his homework. As pointed out by ABC’s Jake Tapper,
“Omar Abdulmutallab was in the field long before that airstrike. (He purchased his plane ticket in Ghana the day before, in fact, and had been in Yemen for months before).”
Paul somehow, as brilliant as he supposed to be, completely missed simple news reports that the plan was put in place and tickets purchased prior to the December 17 strike in Yemen. How do you retaliate for something that had yet to happen?
Trying desperately to interrupt Stein, Paul keeps on whining, “why,” “What makes them terrorists” and “They're terrorists because we're occupiers” in response to Steins answer of, “They're terrorists and murders because they are psychos.”
Ben Stein rightfully lays into Paul pointing out his anti-semitism by telling Paul, “No, we're not occupiers. That's the same anti-Semitic argument we've heard,” which just brings out more whiny words from Paul, accusing Stein of a “vicious attack,” in his normal nasal whiny voice.
Cry me a bucket of tears, Paul.
Ron Paul and his glassy eyed worshippers make the claim that they are the true heirs to the legacy of Ronald Reagan and that Reagan would agree with Paul’s naïve view of foreign policy and fighting terror.
If any of them actually did their homework and researched what Reagan actually stood for, they would choke on that claim.
In the July 1975 issue of the Libertarian magazine, Reason, Reagan was interviewed and asked about Viet Nam (the war on terror had not started yet, for you Paulies). He replied about the outcome,
“Once you are going to commit yourself to a combat role and you’re going to ask young men to fight and die for your country, then you have a moral obligation as a nation to throw the full resources of the nation behind them and to win that war as quickly as possible and get it over with, and this is where we made the mistake: to pour half a million men in there, to kill 54,000 young men in a cause that Washington, that the government was unable or unwilling to win.”
Who better fits the statement of “unwilling to win” than Ron Paul?
He’s not only unwilling to win, he blames America while ignoring obvious evidence to the contrary.
Little wonder why Paul never progressed beyond single digits in true polls last year and only won some 35 delegates.
