    Paul has been 20%+- for a while now, and they are only using the story now? Well, all's fair in politics, Paul wanted media attention, now he gets to feel the bite like all the others.

    Paul is not 20 % now. RCP has him at 12.4 % and this is the highest he has been. RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - 2012 Republican Presidential Nomination

    There's nothing he can do to get my vote, who cares what he said 20 years ago though?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Do you care about Ron Paul's statements?

    While I condemn racism, much of what passes for "racism" in our public sphere is a far cry from the real thing. Not having read the statements attributed to Paul, nor their larger context, I have no firsthand knowledge of what was said or whether it qualifies as "racist" remarks. I'm sure the comments in question were at times harsh, insensitive and certainly politically incorrect, but that's not racism. I will not be voting for Ron Paul in the primaries for a number of reasons, the statements attributed to Rep. Paul - whatever they were - and his defense/explanation/response to inquiries about them are not one of those reasons.

    i will be more interested in how he honestly responds to this matter
    He already responded in 2008 when he ran for president; the last time this bubbled up.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    and we see how well it worked for him then, too

    Dr. Paul's flight from a contentious interview to avoid having to address questions about articles within his publication did not well serve his credibility

    It worked fine last time... the reason it's coming up again is because he's rising in the polls.... so those who have a need to knock him down dig it back up again. Not difficult to understand.

    "Those who have a need" as if that's some shadowy, sinister conspiracy out to get Ron Paul? Oh please! We should expect the leading candidate in the Republican race to be attacked by (a) all of his primary opponents and (b) anyone who doesn't want the Republicans to win the general election (which covers essentially everyone not participating in the primary). This has happened to Bachmann, Perry, Cain and Gingrich. It will happen to Romney should he win the Iowa caucuses. Paul can get his ticket and stand in line. He's nothing special.
