Watch McCain and Romney sitting there with a smug, condescending look on their faces ... especially Mitt Romney.


To Mike Huckabee's credit, in this video, he acted with respect and almost looked as if Ron Paul was getting through to him.

Here's Ron Paul's post-debate speech at Simi Valley Rally:




Do the math: Shouldn't Ron Paul have got 20 minutes instead of only 8 minutes?

Does Fox News train CNN employees on the principle of "fair and balanced"?

CNN had only four candidates during the debate. To any reasoning mind, it makes sense to give each candidate equal time, right? So each should get 25% of the time of the 1 hour and 22 minutes (82 minutes) available.

This would give each candidate 20 minutes and 30 seconds to speak to the American People.

Yet, Ron Paul only got 7 minutes and 57 seconds to speak.

That's 9% of the time. CNN shortchanged Ron 12 1/2 minutes. Would giving Ron Paul those 12 1/2 minutes, he should have received, be that dangerous to CNN? Besides the other candidates, WHO stands to gain here by shortchanging Ron?

Of course, those minutes had to go to the other three. Guess who got the most time?

How can CNN employees, in the furthest stretch of imagination and in good conscience, believe this is fair?

Are they so stupid to believe that Americans can't see through this unfair bullshit?

Here's a breakdown of Ron Paul's time:

Question 1 on the economy: 1:19 minutes

Question 4 on the environment: 0:41 minutes, because Anderson cut him short and assured him "2 minutes, in 2 minutes we have a question for you. I promise"

Question 5 on income tax rebates and "make work" schemes: 0:49 minutes
Question 11 on Sandra Day O'Conner: 0:09 minutes, I kid you not. Cut short by Anderson

Question 15* on McCain's "100 years in Iraq" statement: 1:39 minutes (only question directly asked to Dr. Paul)

Question 18* on how X would handle the military as commander in chief: 1:50 minutes

Question 19* on a Reagan endorsement: 0:46 minutes

* These question numbers are approximate because it was hard to keep track after McCain and Romney were playing slap ass with each other over the Iraq war technicalities and time tables for withdrawal. This was followed up by a gem by Dr. Paul that made both those guys look like the village idiots they really are.
