The good ole USA
Out of how many was it 21, 22 or 23 or more. Of course the libs have to watch, after all they can't brag on obamas accomplishments so they are looking for some sort of attack.

while I am sure there are other sources and ways to watch the kardashians, I wouldn't know of them.. but as far as the debates.. TV is only one source.. and the debate itself has been replayed on the news, on the internet and on the radio..

but in case you didn't miss it.. it was once again a liberal moderator asking questions irrelevant to the Presidency..

and when the highlight played on CNN News and debated is Newt's one word describing himself as cheerful.. did we really miss much?

The one snip I keep seeing is where Ron Paul called Santorum is a fake and he reasoning was when Santorum is running he is a Conservative but when in Congress he vote otherwise. If Santorum is a fake then Paul is a HYPOCRITE. He claims to support limited terms but he is a ten term Congressman.

He also say he has never voted for an earmark BUT

Paul made over $157 million in earmark requests for FY 2011, one of only four House Republicans to request any earmarks. Additionally, he made over $398 million in earmark requests for FY 2010, again one of the leading Republican House members. These earmark requests include:

•$8 million from federal taxpayers for Recreational Fishing Piers.
•$2.5 million from taxpayers for "new benches, trash receptacles, bike racks, decorative street lighting."
•$2.5 million from taxpayers to modify medians and sidewalks for an "Economically Disadvantaged" area.
•$2.5 million from federal taxpayers for a "Revelation Missionary Baptist Community Outreach Center."
•$38 million in multiple requests for literacy programs to "encourage parents to read aloud to their children."
•$18 million from federal taxpayers for a Commuter Rail Preliminary Engineering Phase (light rail).
•$4 million from federal taxpayers for the "Trails and Sidewalks Connectivity Initiative."
•$11 million from federal taxpayers for a "Community-Based Job Training Program."
•$2 million from federal taxpayers for a "Clean Energy" pilot project.
•$5 million from federal taxpayers in order to build a parking garage.
•$1.2 million for a "Low-income working families Day Care Program"
•$4.5 million from federal taxpayers for a new Youth Fair facility.
All of the above earmarks can be found on Paul's own congressional website. While Paul does not digitize the requests prior to FY 2011, they're still available as PDFs. Paul typically will make the earmark request, but then votes against or abstains from voting on final passage, so he can maintain his claim to have "never voted for an earmark", even the earmark requests he himself made. He defends the practice here.

Ron Paul is a HYPOCRITE for claiming others run on one stand and once elected does something else. :roll:
