It’s official: Congressman Ron Paul makes me sick

Posted by: ST on December 10, 2011 at 10:32 am

His bumbling and rambling at the debates has mostly been comical.  But his solidarity with 9-11 Truthers is deeply troubling and believe it or not  it doesn’t stop there:

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul said Thursday evening that Bush administration officials were gleeful after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks because it gave them a pretext to invade Iraq.

“Just think of what happened after 9/11. Immediately before there was any assessment there was glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq,” the Texas Republican told a group of mostly young backers in Iowa. He went on to suggest officials are now setting the stage for an invasion of Iran.

“GLEEFUL” over the murder of 3,000 innocents, just because it meant they could “invade Iraq”?

In response to Paul’s comments Thursday evening, former Bush administration spokesman Ari Fleisher Tweeted: “The man is nuts.”

On “Face the Nation” last month, Paul said that while the average American didn’t cause the Sept. 11 attacks, ” if you have a flawed policy it may influence it.”

“I think there’s an influence and that’s exactly what the 9/11 commission said that’s what the DOD has said and that’s also what the CIA has said and that’s what a lot of researchers have said,” said Paul. “…our policies definitely had an influence and you talk to the people who committed it and those individuals who would like to do us harm. They say yes we don’t like American bombs to be falling on our country and we don’t like the intervention that we do in their nation so to deny this I think is very dangerous. But to argue the case that they want to do us harm because we’re free and prosperous is very dangerous notion because it’s not true.”

Let’s face it:  Right now, if you’re still a staunch supporter of Ron Paul after this, you’re no better than he is.  What a despicable Congressman.

Don Surber agrees, and adds:

Ron Paul has peddled this bullcrap for years. Recall this exchange during the 2008 presidential debate season:

Ron Paul: “They attack us because we’ve been over there, we’ve been bombing Iraq for 10 years. We’ve been in the Middle East. I think Reagan was right. We don’t understand the irrationality of Middle Eastern politics.”

Rudy Giuliani: “That’s an extraordinary statement of someone who lived through the attack of Sept. 11, that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq. I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before and I’ve heard some pretty absurd explanations for Sept. 11.”

Ron Paul is a perennial presidential candidate whose first bid was in 1988. He has figured out how to make a buck or two off paranoid rubes who buy this swill. It is a cottage industry that others such as Lyndon LaRouche work quite well.

I defend his right to lie about honorable men because I trust that most people have the wisdom to understand how ignorant he is.

And God help any who don’t.

UPDATE – 11:21 AM: The more rabid  Paulbots and Truthers, be warned: I have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to blaming America for 9-11.  Please don’t try my patience, because on this issue, I have none.

  1. H Hazell says:

    I can agree with half of Ron Paul’s ideas, the other half are beyond disturbing!

  2. Jason says:

    The 9-11 Commission agrees with Ron Paul.

    Here is a further list of reading materials by foreign policy EXPERTS, and the 9-11 commission. Ron Paul gave the list to Rudy G. after the debate so he could educate himself. I suggest you try and do the same:

    Here is the full list:

    Johnson, Chalmers. Blowback. Henry Holt and Company: New York, NY. 2000.

    Pape, Robert A. Dying to Win. Random House: New York, NY, 2005.

    Scheuer, Michael. Imperial Hubris. Potomac Books: Washington, DC, 2004.

  3. Chris in NC says:

    H Hazell nails it. There is a lot to like about RP. He is exactly what we need in some areas. However, the other stuff is so bat shit crazy that it would kill anything good he would do. All Obama would have to do is play that clip over and over and the election is finished.

  4. Ed says:

    Bush: War Criminal
    Cheney: War Criminal
    Rumsfeld: War Criminal
    Obama: War Criminal

    Ron Paul 2012

  5. Carlos says:

    H Hazell is correct. Unfortunately, the 50% that any sane person disagrees with is the part that will supply the fodder to the base of his 2012 alternative party bid for the presidency, thus assuring our present Clown-in-Chief another four years.

    At this point I’m convinced that the only hope our country has is for the big boys (no men there!) to duke it out while we, the people, elect an overwhelming majority of conservatives to both houses of Congress to keep whoever ends up in the WH in check. If that majority is large enough, we could even eliminate ObamaCare and beat his veto.

  6. Jae says:

    Say what you want about Ron Paul, at least he isnt owned by the banks. What self respecting woman would support Newt after the way he’s treated his ex wives?

  7. Sharpin LA says:

    Common sense, HISTORY and even our founding fathers warns us about foreign entanglements. We’ve ignored them. As a result our nation has been nearly decimated through unsustainable war/defense spending and debt accumulation.

    Hey how’s our economy doing…? Oh just fine thank you, we have those fine Keynesians running the show with their nonstop counterfeiting operations… The country should be just about done by 2013 since we are at 98% loss of value in 2011 and the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913. Impressive – the Federal Reserve banking system would wipe out 100% of the value of a currency in only 100 years. Huh.

    Just like clockwork.

    Foreign policy and the economy are intertwined tightly.

  8. Kwakerjak says:

    It’s stuff like this that leads me to conclude that if the primary comes down to Mitt Romney and Ron Paul, I’ll vote for Romney without an ounce of regret.

  9. John says:

    He’s not saying what the terrorists do is right. He’s saying the things our foreign policy does in the Middle East enhances their desire to do those types of things. We will keep putting ourselves in danger if we keep giving them reasons to resent and attack us. Also, where does he say he is apart of the 9-11 truth movement, or anything about it in general?

  10. Dane says:

    You infer WAY too much from his statement.

    He did not mention or even allude to the deaths on 9/11. He spoke of the Bush Administration’s eagerness to get Iraq (NOT Afghanistan). That is all.

    All your conjecture gets you lost in a patriotic fog. Paul wants us to look at the BIG picture. We were ALL outraged at 9/11, including Ron Paul.
    He voted to attack Afghanistan and rightly so. However Iraq is a different ball of tangled string. You cannot attach his views on Iraq to his views on 9/11. They are NOT related, except by Bush rhetoric and loose political association. Watch the movie, W.
    I am a conservative, and Ron Paul is my choice for President. I will NEVER be ashamed of his record of honesty and common sense in Congress.

  11. John says:

    Cite specifically your grip with Paul and back it up with Facts. He is a true defender of Individual Liberty and a limited Federal Government that lives within the confines of the Constitution. He understands the current economic crisis and the real cause(The Federal Reserve)like no other. You will not find a politician with the Integrity and unrelenting principles of Dr. Paul. When you get down to it Newt , Mitt and the others in the GOP are no different than Obama.Just opposite sides of the same coin.
    How about dropping the sand box antics and ad hominem attacks.Learn the facts.

  12. IvanBulatov says:

    To anser your 1st point. Perceived occupation by foreign power is significant motivating factor for suicide terrorism.

    1. Paul Wolfowitz concured with that when he pointed out bases in Saudi Arabia as a major irritant (he was undesec. of Def.under Bush)
    2. Michael Scheuer, CIA head of Bin Laden tracking unit, same conclusion
    3. DoD funded research by Pape.

    This is not controversial. This is common sense. Research & experts share this opinion.

    To address your second point. It is well documented fact that invasion of Iraq was planned as one of the first items of the Bush admin (leaked docs by Paul O’Neil).

    Bob Woodwards reported that multiple people in Bush admin were talking that 9/11 gives wonderful opportunity to remake the middle east into something better.

    It is insane to think that Bush admin would be happy about 3000 americans dead at the hand of the terrorists. What Ron Paul was referring to is to ‘wonderful opportunity’ comments from Bush administration.

  13. Michael says:

    He elaborated on the “glee” comment last night on Wolf Blitzer I believe. Read his book “The Revolution: A Manifesto” if you really want to be informed. If you’re content to only know what is fed to you, it will only result in more blog posts filled with wrong. A lot of people who wouldn’t take the time to learn what Ron Paul really believes before, are now, and it’s waking a lot of people up. You can just continue to believe what the talking heads tell you, plenty of people are wising up while you stay far behind.

  14. Jason says:

    No doubt many so called conservatives will choose the least Conservative Presidential Candidate (Newt or Romney) because they can’t, don’t or won’t read and understand history.

    Newt- Gun Owners of America gave him a D, Amnesty, Supported TARP, Healthcare mandate, nuff said.

    Romney- Pretty much the same.

    Amusingly? Obama…pretty much the same.

  15. Sam Peck says:

    Ron Paul is right on. Ask Dick Cheney about “bizarre coincidence”! To say he makes you sick only demonstrates a closed mind. After 911 the Bush administration made sure the military-industrial complex was fueled by an endless war. Hearing this only reinforces the high level of brain washing that networks like “FOX” have accomplished! Think for yourself!!!

  16. EddieB says:

    I understand the cringing w/anything that would sound like 9-11 truthers. However, above all else, we must be as painfully objective as we can. I have not decided on anyone yet in the GOP primary…but there is a great deal of truth in the view of because we are over there, it has created great animosity. Jason above, has the right approach…we need to grab the big pic by looking at hard evidence; we have been meddling along time in various places abroad…HOWEVER, this does not negate the the other side that radical Islam hates the west…period…and would try to bring it down. We must be ever vigilant, not naive, nor afraid of our own failings as a nation in order to correct them.

  17. I am not a Ron Paul fan on many issues. But I do think his view of foreign policy is mischaracterized in some ways. If you read UBL’s words on why he hated the U.S. he had said over and over again it is our policy’s of intervention into the affairs of the middle east.

    It makes no sense for us to give money to Israel, then turn around it give money to the Palastinians as well. We are fueling both sides of a conflict that we don’t really fully understand.

    We talk about freedom and then gave billions to Mubarak who was brutal to his own people. From the point of view of the average person on the street in the middle east we are saying we want freedom for all, except for them. They don’t see our needs, they see their own. You can’t expect them to see everything from our point of view and then turn around and ignore theirs. Look at the Q&A of Ann Coulter at the CPAC earlier this year, she flat out said that Mubarak was a “good dictator”. I don’t think the Egyptians who were suppressed by him feel that way. He protected some of our needs, but he certainly didn’t protect his own people.

    Our middle east policy has been the lesser of evils for decades. There isn’t just one point of view. To me that is what he is saying, not that we are to blame for it in the purest sense of the word, but the government policies don’t always look at the bigger picture.

    The problem is there are no easy answers in that part of the world. Completely pulling out and no longer funding anyone over there won’t work for us or for them in the long term.

  18. Ron Paul SUCKS says:

    Libertarian Ron Paul is the #1 Pig Porker in the Republican Party with a lobby list spanning from A to Z. Google it ya thuggish Ronulans wearing your paranoid V for Vendetta Hollywood masks.

    Ron Paul, a 30 year lying and duplicitious politician who screeches and whines to a bunch of Alex Jones freakazoid Troofers.

    Ronulans and Obamabots, the same degree of insanity.

  19. Andy says:

    This is the usual “he’s crazy” or “he’s nuts” attack method. Of course these people are going to say he’s nuts. What he said about the bush administration was in some leaked documents.

    Ron Paul speaks the truth and the best defense people can come up wih is “he’s crazy folks, don’t listen to him.”

    Bull-you know what.

  20. John says:

    “Since the tea party started as a reaction to Republicans who voted for TARP, and was strengthened into a national political force during the fight over ObamaCare, I believe this disqualifies both Romney and Gingrich from tea party support.”
    ~ Rand Paul

    I agree.

    Okay so this is the best way i can put it and this is coming from a veteran… if someone know know were to come into your home and start telling you what to do and how to do it and than set up shop in your home how would you handle this?

    We seem to forget that we have freedoms over here “or i should say had” and we attempt to impose these on people overseas what right do we have to do this? we also speak about freedom of religion yet we scoff at there religion becuase they treat women differently than we do. Again who are we to tell someone what they can and cannot do? It is time for us to stop telling everyone else what they need to do and its time to start listening to our citizens before we also have a revolution here as well.
    Remeber a person will do anything to defend is home i would put my life on the line i would do whatever it takes to defend my freinds and my family even if that means going to one extreme or the other and if you can honestly say that you wouldnt do the same for your freinds and family than maybe you should reconsider your humanity.

  25. G says:

    We don’t want them in our front yards either.

    I will be voting for Ron Paul and not the better of the evils. America is my Country and I want to save and defend her!

    Common Sense – use it.

    And as for the statement of “30-year lying….politician” – all I can say is, Really? How “duplicitous”.

  26. Tony says:

    To rationally analyze Ron Paul’s response to 9/11, one must forgoe emotions dealing with that terrible day. Otherwise, anger and revenge will cloud our thoughts. Blow-back is real. What is also real is the loss of our civil liberties, the promotion and support of corporatism and crony capitalism. Leaving us “the People” poor, constantly in fear and not free. Ron Paul will restore liberty and prosperity. Trust me, without him, we are on the road to tyranny.

    He is our last chance.

  27. John says:

    If Ron Paul does not win the GOP I will Not vote for the lesser of two evils. I will write in my vote for Ron Paul on the ballot.
    It’s about Integrity and Principles. That is why WE love Ron Paul; he has been unwavering in his beliefs as We should be! I will write in my vote on the ballot for Ron Paul and if All his supporters do the same this will send a very clear message to the establishment.It will also ruin any chance the GOP has to topple Obama and they know this.They need us more that we need them. It’s All or Nothing!
    When you really get down to it Mitt, Newt and the GOP establishment are no different than Obama. Opposite sides of the same Big Government, Nanny Statist coin. Time for us to do the same as Ron Paul.Take a stand for what we believe in just as Dr. Paul has done. Send the message to the GOP Establishment we will Not submit nor waiver! Either get on board with us with Ron Paul or get ready for a second Obama term!
    In Liberty….God Bless.

  28. Eric says:

    The problem with the Middle East is NOT US Policy in that region. It is not our bases, nor our money, nor our support of various regimes/dictators/governments. No. The problem is that Islam is not a religion. It is a murdering, vindictive, lying, supressive cult which deigns itself sovereign over all people on Earth, to the extent that they are willing to blow up innocents en masse merely to make a point. When oil was discovered in the Middle East, rocketing the nomadic, primative culture to wealth, they finally had the means to begin to branch out and assault the rest of the world once more (as they always have in the past). Any offense we have given Islamic radicals has been, to put it mildly, slight. Unfortunately, they only have one reaction; getting all butt-hurt that their pride and joy, “Allah”, has been insulted.

    They are lucky that the Bush Administration didn’t follow the “scorched earth” methodology, and insist that ALL Muslim gov’t turn over ALL Islamic radicals they were harboring/financing under threat of nuclear bombardment IMMEDIATELY.

    We have the means to wipe them from the face of the earth, yet we repeatedly offer peace and freedom. They claim to be “the Religion of Peace” yet everywhere they are found, death, destruction, mayhem, and enslavement follows in short order. The US is “the last great shining beacon on the hill”, and Ron Paul, in his isolationist-enduced fog, doesn’t get this.

    It’s not about 3,000 people killed here, it’s about their insistence on their ALLAH-GIVEN RIGHT to murder anyone, anywhere, and at any time, merely for being “not Muslim”. I’m sorry that the Ron-bots can’t see this. No one person will “restore liberty and prosperity”… and you’re smoking some serious Ronulan ganja if you believe so blindly in his words. After all, he’s been in the law-making body of the US for 30 years, and what has he accomplished? If he’s been so unbelievably correct, why hasn’t he sponsored better legislation there? Why hasn’t he formed a coalition to advance his ideas?

    The VERY LAST thing this country needs is the leadership of another member of Congress! That’s akin to repeating the fall of the Roman Empire, step by step.

    Paul wants us to look at the BIG picture.

    When it comes to foreign policy, Paul has never seen “the big picture”. We’re not living in 1799 anymore and with the ability of other countries to reach out and touch us in hours vs months, allowing threats to build unchecked until they’re blowing up our cities and killing our citizens is irresponsibly dangerous as history taught us in the early part of the 20th century.

  30. sanjuro says:

    Everytime I think of giving Ron Paul a chance he spouts bilge like this.

    One step forward, three steps back. he’s his own worst enemy. Repugnant doesn’t begin to describe him.

    Lord, What a top three lineup to choose from, a flip flopper, a shifty beltway insider and a looney toons truther. oboobster must be laughing his head off, he’s a shoe in if this is his only competition.

  31. Justin says:

    Ron Paul is the only candidate who has an idea big enough to get this country out of the mess we have gotten ourselves into (by electing crappy politicians).

    Whether one is republican, democrat, or anything in between, what is found when looking within Dr. Ron Paul’s message is that he is the only one who can have a positive impact on this country. Gingrich is a statesman, he is more of a liberal than Obama so we know he won’t fix things. We have seen Obama try to fix things and just like most of the republican candidates, his ideas are not big enough to make the impact we need. Romney is the same way – he just isn’t going to cut it.

    Now, if you are looking to get Obama out of the office then that is something different we need to look at. How did Obama win in ’08? With social networking and the support of America’s youth and with the votes of independents. What do we see in this election? Much of that youth still supports Obama, BUT another candidate has slipped up through the cracks who takes away that youth and independent vote from Obama, thus weakening Obama’s support while simultaneously strengthening his own. This candidate’s supporters are highly unrepresented in all media polls. This candidate is none other than Dr. Ron Paul himself.

    Ron Paul is the only candidate who can beat Obama. Either our vote is electing Ron Paul or our vote is electing Obama. You choose – the choice is yours and the future in your hands!

  33. Joe says:

    Sarah you miss the point of the bigger picture. when we have our armies all over the world it makes it easier for people to come out and touch us. our arms (armies) have been stretched out in the air (all over the world) for to long it does not seem like to much in the short run but eventually gravity always wins and our arms will eventually be unable to fight against gravity. (empires always fall and are unsustainable because the cost of being in other countries far out weighs what is gained in being in so many different countries.) notice NO OTHER COUNTRY DOES WHAT WE DO YOU JOIN THE 20th CENTURY AND STOP IMPERIALISM!
