Ron Paul reissues claims on American policy and 9/11
Sensing that Ron Paul is gaining momentum in Iowa and New Hampshire it was unfortunate and embarrassing that CBS Face the Nation moderator and CFR mouthpiece Bob Schieffer regurgitated the baseless jingoistic tripe that "Ron Paul blames America for the 9/11 terrorist attacks."
Paul responded telling Shieffer, "America is you and I, we didn't cause it. The average American didn't cause it, but if you have a flawed policy, it may influence it."
Paul is correct on the connection and motivation for the attacks. It was not because in America we are free to go to church on Sunday, or that women can drive cars, or that we can vote every four years for president, or Joe six pack can buy a case a beer on Tuesday night, and the countless wonderful democratic freedoms our politicians and courts allow us to still partake in, but our misguided and destructive foreign policy in the Middle East.

The tide may finally be turning for Ron. Via a Patriot Network egroup:
ABC News Says Ron Paul Could WIN

Keep this handy for your friends who still don't understand the lizard menace:
Went to a local GOP mtg last night to offer support for Ron Paul. Offered to speak for him if nobody else showed up to as rumored. One of hosts breezed that he liked some things about Ron but disliked others. I of course took him right up on it.
"Tell me what you don't like, please."
"Well, for one thiiiiiing, he has no charisma."
"Charisma matters? Hey, he's winning every poll!"
"Well -- I don't care about charisma that much, but you know the people out there, they think they have to have it!"
"Like I said, he's winning every poll, or close to it. How much more charisma could you ask?"
I forget what he said next, but I soon realized standing in the chow line that I really didn't want to be anywhere with Rick Perry promotions on every table. Exiting, I said to the head guy (whom I know) "I'll see you another time, Dan."
"You're leaving? Stick around awhile, we've got a good meeting planned."
"I'm just allergic to the Republican Party," I half-joked, striding out to my car.
"Aw, we're not like thaaaaaaat -- !",
Don't worry, he IS, and they ARE. This is a wonderful area in many ways, but its political IQ is abysmal on anything but local affairs, even among the better types.

Paul seems to be gaining traction in Iowa. Also, a NBC poll shows that, "In a hypothetical three-way match up, Obama gets 44 percent, Romney gets 32 percent and Texas Rep. Ron Paul gets 18 percent."

Paul can either campaign to the Republican convention garnering 35% of primary votes against Romney and his campaign ends, or he can decide shortly to run a general election campaign and try to raise that 18% to 35% in a three way race.
If he truly wants to become president the latter seems to be his most plausible course to take.

I just hope that when they pull obvious vote fraud on him this time (as in New England last time) he, or somebody, raises a BIG stink about it.
Last time it simply sank beneath the waves without trace.
