Ron Paul gets to Fox News and Rick and Mitt too!

Listen Ron! Don't rain on my parade
Rupert Murdoch runs Fox News. Most of the hacks and hired honchos on that station do his bidding. I bet most of them have Rick Perry or Mitt Romney pics pinned to their bedroom walls. Imagine the panic setting in in the newsrooms when Fox News finds out that Ron Paul has topped a poll on who came out best in the GOP debates. They went ape and demanded that their website pull the offending information. After all it would do Fox News no good telling the unbridled truth, would it?

I don't know about you but I like to watch the ones who are listening rather than talking. It tells a picture that a thousand words couldn't. As Ron Paul gets his say, sometimes the camera lands on the faces of the other candidates (watch video below to see my point. Perry and Romney look a treat!). They are listening to Ron's homespun truths. Like you can't get a quart into a pint pot. Rick Perry listens as if he's hearing stuff from a mad man. Mad in the sense of politically barmy. In Rick's world this would be political suicide. Then Mitt Romney allows his mouth to smile a tad at the corners as if to suggest he knows how to delude the electorate and its not talking about wayward government spending. He prefers to talk about "cutting taxes", so he can attempt to put a quart into a pint pot.

Ron Paul said something rather interesting. The US government is flat lining as far as new jobs are concerned. Yet the population has shot up by 30 million or so. Obvious disconnect here. Many in the audience got it, some didn't and Ron's opponents looked around for their ear muffs. But what are these new people doing to earn a crust? A lot are obviously in the black economy. The sort of person who acts as maid to senators. But many others are just out there doing whatever. Living with family, out on the streets stealing, who knows. Ron Paul has asked a question, the sort of question that Fox News hates.
