The Truth About Rick Perry’s “Assault” of Ron Paul

Bookmark and Share    As Ron Pauliacs try to smear all those who might dare to disagree with their messiah, and continue to perpetuate rumors about Texas Governor Rick Perry assaulting Dr. Paul during the most recent Republican presidential debate, Congressman Paul himself finally divulges the ugly details of the traumatic experience conjured up by his supporters.

According to Rep. Paul, [as seen in the video below] he didn’t remember the exact moments that the pictures were taken in, but he confirms the two …..”didn’t have any cross words”.

Kudo’s to Ron Paul for setting the record straight.

While I am not a fan of Congressman Paul’s interpretation of several policies, I happen to like the man himself.  But as made evident by his kool aid swilling fanatics in the false allegations associated with three misleading photos, Ron Paul’s supporters do him more harm than good.  Few of them help Dr. Paul or his cause.  Just as Congressman Paul suffers from his own inability to take his arguments and communicate them in a way that expands his base, his most ardent supporters do little to help persuade people to support Ron Paul.  In fact they do just the opposite.  They turn people off with their obnoxious allegations, name calling, shouts,  and characterizations of others who disagree with them or their messiah.

In this case what is most funny and quite hypocritical of Pauliacs is that despite their attempts to claim a deeper appreciation for the United States Constitution than all others, they conveniently ignored one of the basic judicial precepts of American law………that one is innocent until proven guilty.  Thankfully Dr. Paul has not forgotten that.  Perhaps his supporters should remember that as well?

Did Rick Perry Threaten Ron Paul During the Presidential Debate?

Bookmark and Share  While most of the on air sparring in last night’s Republican presidential debate took place between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, apparently there was a little brouhaha during one of the station breaks. 

As captured in the photo shown here, it was during one of these breaks that Governor Perry strode up to Ron Paul, grabbed Paul’s wrist and raised his other hand to point a finger in Paul’s face in an attempt to make a point to the Congressman.

According to RonPaul.com, here’s how it went down:

“During a commercial break at Wednesday’s Republican debate, Rick Perry and Ron Paul continued their spirited exchange on stage. Suddenly, Perry grabbed Ron Paul’s forearm while aggressively pointing his index finger towards the Congressman’s face. Alerted by Perry’s menacing gestures, Ron Paul’s bodyguard (front left) was standing by, ready to protect the Congressman.”

What exactly was said is unknown but that won’t prevent Pauliacs from trying to use the image against their feeble three time presidential candidate.  So far they are on a campaign to try and claim that Perry was threatening and intimidating Paul. 

If the photo is capturing a truly heated exchange you can rest assured that Governor  Perry most likely urged Ron Paul  to stop the blatant lies Paul’s campaign has been promulgating about Perry, including the one about Perry having been a national chairman for Al Gore.

In past debates, live streams allowed internet users to catch glimpses of the candidates and how they were interacting during commercial breaks but MSNBC’s live stream of last night’s debate did not offer such an opportunity as they simply cut the  feed during commercials.  Had they not, we might have at  least seen the Perry-Paul exchange.

So far, there is no official comment from either Paul or Perry regarding what the exchange consisted of, but that has not stopped Ron Paul fanatics from trying to lift their messiah ever higher by alleging Rick Perry assaulted their guy. 

Until it is known exactly what was said, drawing conclusions is futile, but in the end, it my be in the best interest of Ron Paul that Rick Perry’s words remain unknown because if I know Rick Perry, his words probably did not provide for the type of praise that Ron Paul  would want to duplicate in an ad promoting his candidacy. And it will probably make many Paulbots look truly stupid for their exaggerations and lies.
