    I only caught the last ten minutes. Does anyone know where I can find video of the entire debate????

    I will accept that my opinion is completely biased: I really liked RP in this debate! I was on the Bloomberg site, and majority of the comments were about Paul and the media’s continued disrespect for him. I myself commented about how annoyed I was that the whole table seemed to be belittling Dr. Paul. Well, idk if its their standard policy or what, but shortly after about 15 pro-Paul comments were made, the comments section could no longer be found… doesn’t matter though, I still say Paul 2012 all the way! 🙂

  • ShaneEnochs

    Of course they didn’t give Dr. Paul any time to speak. Good grief, what is it with these guys? I’d like to see a debate where EVERY candidate gets an EQUAL amount of time to speak.

    • Peoples_Icon

      @ShaneEnochs I’d like to see a debate where Ron Paul gets an hour to talk and the rest of the candidates have to shut the hell up.

      • ShaneEnochs

        @Peoples_Icon I’d like to see Ron Paul school all the other candidates. All they ever do is bicker. Dr. Paul says what he thinks, but is very respectful of the other candidates.

  • Secrent

    When are these people running the debates going to STOP the candidates after 1 min.? They let Romney keep going like the Energizer Bunny. Shut the damn mike off on them after 1 min!!! Tough luck, time is up.

    • Peoples_Icon

      @Secrent They were quick to cut Paul off not just because of time but for the commercial break as well. Didn’t see that being done for the other candidates did you? I also noticed another commercial break was coming up but was placed on hold so Cain could have the floor.

  • Let Freedom Ring

    Ron Paul you did great as always! Thank You for all that you do for America!

  • Peoples_Icon

    What can one say? This debate was as fixed as a Pro-Wrestling Event. Did enjoy the few jabs that Ron Paul landed on Cain Aka Blatant Liar. I need a number so I can vent to someone about how crooked this shit is.

  • ProudTEX

    Cain was stoping Audit the Fed-Reserve. Ron Paul was Right – check it out for yourself.
