    Glad they are trying to fight back against the narrative, though I think Rand could have been a little more forceful in this interview. He did bring up some decent points, but I think he should have highlighted more about people leading this far out very rarely go on to win the nomination. He brought up Herman Cain quickly at the beginning. I also don't know why he didn't bring up the fact that Santorum was only at 3-4% just weeks before the Iowa caucus (yea I know that was largely to media pumping him at the last moment, but still a point Rand could bring up imo), maybe he just can't bring himself to say anything positive about Santorum which I wouldn't really be able to fault him over

    I'm glad he brought up Herman Cain. He needs to repeat this more. Keep mentioning the people who won Iowa before but were at 1% at this point.

    Not bad, but .... stop answering stupid questions, fight back, talk policy instead e.g. "I think you should lay off this false narrative trying to influence the outcome of the elections. I am the only candidate who ......"

    Nothing positive about Santorums, unless you like it extra frothy.

    The Herman Cain mention was weak, he should have talked more. He simply dropped a name. Most people do not even remember who Herman Cain was.

    Not what most people think of as ice-cream.

    Isn't he still running ? At least I haven't heard he dropped out already.

    He did fine, but not amazing.

    It's silly talk anyways. Probably just good enough for him to get a timeslot and continue to be in the minds of viewers.

    I don't recall him getting into the race this round, though I do remember him testing the waters. Are you thinking of Huckabee?

    It is awfully hard to tell the players without a scorecard this year. I keep having to refer to the list when I wind up my Sunday Morning Sit Down Stand Up Comedy thread with a list of Those Wo Must Not Be Named for the week.

    Nope, he's definitely still running. He also was in at least one of the pre-debates.

    Just like I said would happen after the memo...

    "So when are you dropping out Rand?"

    Dumb bitch not having a clue being told what to ask. She just kept going around and around and around with the same question.
    If Rand does not win the Republican nomination, he should buck the controlled two party system and run as an Independent for President in 2016 and give Americans a real option to vote for.

    We are all born libertarians then something goes really wrong. Despite this truth, most people are still libertarians yet not know it.

    I wish Rand would stop calling young voters "kids". Being popular with "kids" is not a selling point. He is winning among people who are most concerned about the burden of debt that they and their children are going to inherit. He is doing well among people who are most concerned about both Republicans and Democrats losing their way on foreign policy. He is popular among people who want to fight for the entire bill of rights. Stop saying "popular with the kids".

    I thought it was cute they took the time to go over the memo and tried to make point-by-point arguments against it. It forced them to show RCP average of the entire field where there are 5 or 6 people behind Rand. Then the obligatory "what do you think about trump __" question at the end.

    So, why is Rand the only candidate who keeps getting bombarded with this question? Why do Huckabee, Graham, Santorum, Kasich, Christie, etc. not find themselves being dogged about dropping out of the race, in spite of the fact that their poll numbers are as low as or lower than Rand's? One would think Rand was in a distant last place in the polls, judging by the way he's treated.

    He does need to clearly explain to these interviewers that candidates have surged from poll numbers as low as or lower than his to take leads or win primaries on multiple occasions within the last few years-- mentioning Herman Cain is a good start, but there are more examples and more compelling illustrations.

    Every interview with Rand, all the interviewers remind me of Jim Carrey from Dumb and Dumber...

    Media:"So Rand, your polls are low, Trump, Trump, Trump... So when you dropping out?"
    Rand: "I'm in it for the long hall, didn't you read my memo? I have a ground game..."
    Media: "So what you are saying is that there is a chance that you are dropping out?"
    Rand: "No!"
    Media: "So what you are saying, is that there is still a chance then that you are dropping out?"

    Then he'll seem overly on the offense, which is only suspicious.

    What ? He needs, at some point, start looking like a leader of the winning team. That look is still not there.

    Cause Martha is a Fox slut, that's why. Sorry for the language, ladies. It's appropriate here.

    gotta love how 4 years ago when santorum was pokin around at the bottom of the polls month after month the media was CONSTANTLY all "dont count out santorum" and "santorum could be the dark horse to win it". That would make an awesome media bias exposed video.

    Unfortunately, yes. We tend to cut the McCallums, Lees, et al FOX attack poodles a break because they appear to be "nicer" personalities than the more openly brassy or obnoxious Megyn Kellys. But they've all agreed to repeat whatever neocon robohawk bankster cant that's fed into their ear pieces.

    FOX is a repetitious propaganda organ, first to last---they're still calling Rand's non-interventionist foreign policy "isolationism" after being corrected a thousand times on the matter over the years. The pejorative rhetoric and narrative is deliberate.
