Fox News Blowback Continues...Ron Paul On Jay Leno Again

Fresh back from being on hiatus for a few months during the writers strike, Jay Leno invited GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul back on the Tonight Show to talk about the big New Hampshire Primary tomorrow and blast Fox News for excluding Ron Paul in their candidate forum last night. Thank you Fox News for all this free publicity. Ain't blowback a bitch. You guys are a joke of a network and getting worse by the day. Ron hit this interview out of the park tonight. There were so many great one liners and quotes that its just best to watch it for yourself here on You Tube....

    Ron's campaign has put out this press release to hopefully put this issue to rest...

    ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – In response to an article published by The New Republic, Ron Paul issued the following statement:

    “The quotations in The New Republic article are not mine and do not represent what I believe or have ever believed. I have never uttered such words and denounce such small-minded thoughts.

    “In fact, I have always agreed with Martin Luther King, Jr. that we should only be concerned with the content of a person's character, not the color of their skin. As I stated on the floor of the U.S. House on April 20, 1999: ‘I rise in great respect for the courage and high ideals of Rosa Parks who stood steadfastly for the rights of individuals against unjust laws and oppressive governmental policies.’

    “This story is old news and has been rehashed for over a decade. It's once again being resurrected for obvious political reasons on the day of the New Hampshire primary.

    “When I was out of Congress and practicing medicine full-time, a newsletter was published under my name that I did not edit. Several writers contributed to the product. For over a decade, I have publically taken moral responsibility for not paying closer attention to what went out under my name.”

    Allan - you'll get your dinner if in fact Doolittle loses re-election.

    Thanks Aaron

    So now you're saying that you aren't going to feed me a great steak because it will be impossible for Doolittle to lose if he's going to be retiring instead, LOL? Nice way to back out of the bet. I told you Aaron almost a year ago that there was no way Cong. Doolittle could win re-election.
