    Didn't this happen to Romney in the last debate?

    ----

    The writer name is James P Powell.

    Headline of the article is misleading as they're conflicting reports.

    Paul claimed what her face in the article was lying.

    It was negligible & irresponsible of him to let this happen under his name.

    That is about as much anybody is going to get from this story. Anything else is conjecture that is coming from the usual suspects.

    Obama threw Wright under the bus and got rid of him decrying his statements and beliefs. When did Paul do that with his baggage?

    Does a person stop being a racist for denouncing one person they seemed to have ideologically agreed with earlier? Be honest. You really don't want to get into an argument of logic with me.

    Who knows? But there are really only 2(3 really) options here.

    1) Paul is ****ty at running things.

    2) Paul is a racist.

    2a) Paul is willing to use race to get political donations and support.

    None of those are things I want from some one in our government.

    Dammit! I agree

    What the voters perceive to be true is important, not if something is actually true.

    Ron Paul repeatedly disavows the newsletters.

    Furthermore, if they went out as unsigned editorial comment under his newsletter banner, then for all intent and purposes he 'owns' them. Too bad he took a walk on the fringe side in order to make money, but I can't feel any real sympathy for those who do that.

    Does anyone even know who wrote them?

    He definitely deserves some criticism, but we knew that a long time ago.

    Oh I agree with you that it is not an all purpose cure or even an inoculation against charges that could be levied in the future. It is a step that needs to be taken IF they want to be considered as a serious candidate for President of the USA. The fact that it was not and will not tells us a great deal about what Paul is really doing and it has damn little to do with getting the GOP nomination.
