"Are you going to tell him you're leaving?" I ask.

"Nahhh," Tucker says. "I really like Ron Paul. I don't want to hurt his feelings."



Say what you want about truthers, but I never trusted Tucker.

I don't know why RP chose him to be the emcee.

It was HIM who was the first to broadcast the thing about those racist newsletters before they even came out.

He is NOT for limited government and says the most absurd things at times.

Please RP distance yourself from him!

Tucker is no friend to Ron Paul.

Tucker tried to destroy him through the media by bringing prostitutes by to meet him. Remember that? Tucker tried destroying Ron Paul's conservative base by that stunt.

Tucker On Ron Paul Event: "This is crazy. I've got to get out of here. Let's go get dinner."

Tucker Carlson was picked to emcee the Ron Paul convention in St. Paul. But he didn't last long.

From The Weekly Standard:

Backstage afterwards, Ventura is further holding court for reporters, after having hinted to the crowd that he might be amenable to a presidential run in 2012 if the Revolution stays on track. "I will be watching!" he threatened.

Tucker hadn't heard the speech, so I break the news to him that Ventura got off his leash. Being a devout believer in the conventional, single-bullet version of the 9/11 attacks (that the terrorists acted alone), Tucker is both alarmed and offended, but doesn't have much time to reflect. He is accosted by some grubby indie-media types who start trying to engage him: "Have you ever heard of the Controlled Demolition Hypothesis ....Who I believe did it are the ones who control our money systems ... Have you followed the [National Institute of Standards and Technology] report on the collapse of building seven?"

After a brief sparring match with the nutcakes, Tucker looks ashen. "This is crazy. I've got to get out of here. Let's go get dinner." We slip out the back door of the arena to hail a cab and get some steaks. But Tucker's still supposed to be emceeing the event, and Paul has yet to speak.

"Are you going to tell him you're leaving?" I ask.

"Nahhh," Tucker says. "I really like Ron Paul. I don't want to hurt his feelings."

What a fuck stain. (+1 for stats) ;)

But seriously... this dude is a tool. He was literally RUNNING away from reality... he fken bailed on the event. He's not genuine at all. He works in the media.. what do you expect?
Jan Heldfield needs to interview him... he'd cut the interview and break down into tears.. little bitch.

I hope RP doesn't deal with him again
Even during the presidential campaign I never liked Tucker

Dude is a clear and pathetic attempt at a double agent of some sort.

If you listen to some of the stuff he talks about during non-ron paul news or commentaries it is nowhere near close to anything RP stands for.

I guess with Tucker as the emcee RP thought that he'd get more media coverage.

Ron either has poor judgment in such matters, or he has poor judgment in picking the people to decide such matters.

Tucker's got a solid case of cognitive dissonance,... he can't even contemplate questioning his reality.. so he runs away like a 3 year old.

Oh, I didn't know Tucker had been accosted backstage by 9/11 truther pseudo-reporters during Ventura's speech. I thought he just didn't like Ventura asking why OBL hadn't been indicted for 9/11, and was "offended" by that question and left, which would have been stupid. I guess I understand a little better why he wanted to get out of there, but still, getting barraged with annoying questions is no reason to ditch your commitments. Tucker is a major journalist--he should be used to that kind of thing.

I didn't hear any of this going down so I am seriously having a problem with the content of said article. Tucker was speaking to 3 or 4 guys but these were the same ones that he was around most of the day that day.

Now. I never mention to much about 9/11 however I don't agree with a lot of what the truthers do or say. However its a free country. I look at the truthers about like I do the Elvis is alive guys. Again this is my personal opinion.

Idiotic truthers expect to be welcomed with open arms and given free reign to promote their retarded divisive views at any and all Paul or CFL events. But a mainstream reporter who actually gets facetime on TV without being openly mocked as a conspiracist fruitcake is unwelcome and to be shunned?

How about shunning Alex Jones and his parade of reptoid obsessed nitwits first, and then consider shunning the few mainstream personalities that are willing to appear on a stage with Paul?

He left his job that he was assigned to. It was very disrespectful act. If you were in his situation or any true RP supporter, you wouldn't have done it. EVERYONE knew Ventura was going to talk about 9/11. If the CFL honestly didn't know then they are retarded, and reminds me of the typical Ron Paul Campaign's lack of common sense. I knew since Ventura was announced as a speaker that he would be asking a few questions about 9/11 like he ALWAYS does.


I guess some people can just dish it out, but can't take it. The guy is slime. Took him a while to prove it, but he did...

Anyone like Bill O'reilly or even a John Gibson would stay and duke it out somehow with the truthers. Thats why FOX shows are so popular. You don't go whining and running back to MSNBC crying. Thats probably one of the reasons why MSNBC and Tucker's show failed horribly in the ratings. Thats probably why the guy won't get another slot on MSNBC.

I'm not sure where I read it, but I know I read that Ventura was asked, and had agreed to, not bring up 9-11. It was under that auspice that Tucker agreed to MC. When Ventura broke his agreement, it ended Tucker's verbal contract. He should've notified someone that he was leaving and it was unprofessional that he did not. But, if you want to cast blame, it should be on Ventura. Because if what I read was correct, it was he who broke his word and kicked off the chain of events.

I don't trust anything until I get a reliable source. Not a Neo-Conservative fringe online journal that claims of a secret agreements.

Like I said about Tucker if hes that hyper-sensitive then its good that he learned the movement isn't for him early on. He got what he wanted, now hes the center of attention after throwing this recent tantrum. How about he goes back to throwing hissy-fits about how bad racism is on the show.

Maybe. But, the 9-11 conspiracy is not part of Dr. Paul's movement and Dr. Paul has made his stance clear. Tucker likes Dr. Paul and this was his Rally. That does not mean that Tucker has to agree with an issue that is near and dear to some of his supporters.

Why doesn't Tucker offer his side? I haven't seen it yet, just some blogs and websites reporting rumors. I've seen 2 different stories so far, one that he left because of John Birch Society guy. And the other because of Ventura. I think Tucker should give his answer.

This has to be blamed on people that ran the Rally for the Republic. I knew since Ventura was booked that he would mention 9/11. Just a feeling after watching all the youtube videos of him on TV and Radio. I'm pretty sure they would've warned him before hand about bringing it up but he didn't listen.

Recall, it was Tucker who brought those Las Vegas whores to an RP function in Nevada at a time when we were trying to woo Huckabee religious voters.

Fucker is also BRUTAL when it comes to sneak attacking 9/11 truthers. He's a piece of shit...just one of many traitors close to RP.

Did you see Ron Paul's interview w/ Beck after the rally? He tried to set RP up, but Ron Paul, being the genius he is, completely shut the bait/hook/line/sinker down. Didn't bite. Too bad for Beck.

LE, Tucker is a pouty baby who needs to grow up. :D
He shouldn't have left, and I think it was planned. He just needed an excuse. If not b/c of the truthers, it would have been some other reason, IMO. Tucker said he voted for RP in 98. How bout 08? ;) People change.

at least his cognitive dissonace has gone and he has opened up to the fact that everything he thought he knew, may not be correct after all

It ain't easy retaining enough of your idealism to be able to sway people yet be a sufficient tool to keep your job. I'm sick of watching them try to toe that line. I'm glad we're learning to couch the truth in effective propaganda. What else works?

Why would RP have a big media man like him be their?

The only reason I think was for some publicity on the major airwaves for people to wake up and look at RON PAUL! Hey if it works right?

Why am I not surprised that self-ascribed Libertarians, Tucker Carlson and Bob Barr would bail out on Ron Paul. Their both sharing a margarita at El Torito right now.

Several people who were at the rally said they saw him there afterwards, all the way through Evans. There were also pictures. No where in that article does it say Tucker left for good.

For being open-minded, people certainly leapt to conclusions based on... what some guy said on a website. Never mind. Par for the course. Carry on.

Then why just refuse to MC the event if he was so "offended"? Why wouldn't he "just leave"?
