excuses... excuses... they're blaming it on the "dialers" of his "better organized" campaign, and the RESPONSE to Giuliani's comments. Insane.

According to Cameron, Paul is getting ALL of the ATTENTION in the SPIN ROOM!!!

GO RON GO

GO RON GO!

Cameron said Paul will be getting "A LOT OF INK!"

He'll be sticking to his guns and staying the course, and telling the TRUTH about WHY 9/11 happened!

Hey, maybe this isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be!!!

They also said he's getting TONS of press interest. Yet they still seem to think their own poll has been rigged. RP in first place and they CAN'T believe it. You better believe it. The American people are SPEAKING OUT LOUD.

I just saw that. To be fair they should have interviewed him right after that fascist Rudi. But they are not trying to be fair. They wont interview him until dead last, if at all.

Edit to add; he will get massive press now!

Can someone provide a link to the Fox poll? I can't vote (don't have a cell phone), but I'd like to see the results, and can't find them anywhere. Or can you only get them as a text after voting or something?

Or is it in the streamed post-debate coverage?

DON"T FALL FOR THE SPIN.

Fox News is saying that Ron Paul is "done."

To hell with that.

Keep fighting the good fight.

But we were ready to go and voting the minute the polls opened. I hope with the negative spin we don't see those numbers changed.

So funny. They made it FOOLproof and they're still saying we rigged it.

Speaking of having Ron Paul on the post debate interviews...

Who do I have to call at Fox News to ask why they have not interviewed the winner of their own poll?

If they do interview RP, can someone upload it to YouTube? I got to see the debate onine, but no coverage. All the action happens in the spin.

Now Hannity and his cronies, particularly Michael Steele, are dismissing their own text message poll and internet polls, and rabidly yelling that there's no way Paul won the debate. So much for "fair and balanced."

Boycott Hannity and it's time to redirect protest e-mails to Fox "News." It won't change them, but it will let them know there are lots of us who are very upset by their blatant bias.

They are really adamant on disregarding Ron Paul, especially Sean Hannity.

Was is it with neocons and their tendency to act like differing opinions on 9/11 are "horrible and insulting?"

That's what Hannity does to everybody. Colmes actually helped make Dr. Paul's points by talking over Hannity.

What a long strange trip - I can't believe I was actually hearing Colmes make some sense tonight.

You may be right after all. If Romney somehow slides well ahead by the end then I'll believe it's rigged by Fox.

So if Ron is ahead he's ahead, and if he's behind the poll is rigged? That isn't a rational mindset.

If they were going to rig the poll Ron wouldn't be ahead in the first place.

You Decide: Viewers Say Who Won Tuesday Night's GOP Presidential Debate

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

FOX News asked you to tell us who you thought won Tuesday night's First-in-the-South Republican Presidential Candidates Primary Debate. With more than 40,000 votes submitted via text message, 29 percent said former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney made the best showing of all 10 GOP presidential hopefuls who made their cases to the American people at the University of South Carolina's Koger Center for the Arts in Columbia, S.C.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who ignited controversy at the debate with remarks that U.S. policy had invited the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, came in second with 25 percent. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who strongly admonished Paul for his comments, came in third place with 19 percent. Arizona Sen. John McCain, who is the frontrunner in South Carolina polls, came in sixth with 5 percent.

You Decide GOP Primary Poll Results

29% Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney

25% Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas

19% Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani

4% Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

3% Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo.

1% Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan.

0% Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore

Hannity was laughable when he argued with Congressman Paul by stating the Constitution doesn't say anything about declaring war. What a buffoon. Notice how now that the neocons cant win an argument, they resort to the same tactics as the extreme left: shout down your opponent. Priceless.
