OK so we had the big GOP debate last night, I didn’t watch it, but this morning I read about it in today’s paper. From a long Washington Post article I learned that “Perry & Romney clashed in the debate” and what they had to say and we were told that they are the front runners. Other then Bachmann, who we were told is falling behind, the other six candidates were not even mentioned.
Like all right sheeple look here this is who you are allowed to vote for.
Of course looking at the Drudge Report if found a survey showing some guy called Ron Paul was by far the overall winner of the debate. I’m sure that the Post’s missing that minor fact was just simply an oversight on their part.
Pictures Suggest Rick Perry Attempted to 'Physically Intimidate' Ron Paul..!
Sept 8, 2011
Pictures taken during a commercial break in last night’s GOP debate at the Reagan Presidential Library suggest that Texas Governor Rick Perry attempted to physically intimidate Congressman Ron Paul, prompting Paul’s security to intervene.
Photographs published by the AP and Reuters show a stern looking Perry holding Paul’s wrist and waving a finger in his face.
Reports by Fox News and International Business Times state that during the break Perry “walked up to Paul’s podium, physically grabbed Paul’s wrist, and pointed at Paul’s face with his other hand.”
A third man, said to be Paul’s security guard, is seen approaching the podium in the picture.
Another photo shows Perry with arms outstretched, leaning in towards Paul engaging in what may be considered lively conversation to say the least. Some Paul supporters have suggested that the shot shows that Perry physically forced Paul away from his own podium during the commercial.
It is not clear, however, whether this picture was taken at the same moment, and it is possible that it shows Paul approaching Perry’s podium. The two candidates were situated directly next to each other during the debate.
Before the exchange took place, Paul and Perry locked horns in a sharp exchange of words, with the Congressman calling out Perry on his support for ‘HillaryCare’ and his issuance of an executive order to forcibly vaccinate 12-year-old girls against HPV.
Ron Paul’s latest campaign ad, which ran during the debate commercials, also targeted Perry, exposing his previous record as a Democrat and his intimate links to Al Gore’s 1988 Presidential campaign.
Did Perry attempt to Physically intimidate Dr. Paul? The two campaigns have been asked to clarify what actually occurred during the exchange.
************************************************** ************ All I know is that in some neck of the woods pointing a finger like that and holding a wrist of a known adversary is considered agressive confrontation and the wrist holding can hold a charge of a class B misdimeaner... as well if that finger tip touched the body...
Ron Paul should press charges...
and I will say this also, since Ron Paul is a physician, that if such an encounter occured on a hosptial floor Perry would be escorted out and if the physician really felt threatened charges might be pressed.

Perry and Paul have never gotten along. Perry is thin skinned and is going to get creamed by all other candidates. It will be interesting to see how he can out last any of them. He will not like having people dig into his closet.
Ron Paul sounds very good, but he is too liberal and too conservative for the GOP. He is the unofficial founder of the Tea Party. It was his followers from the last presidential campaign that started the movement, then they abandoned him due to his "way out there" opinions. I really like Ron Paul and hope that this time he does well.
If I were to vote GOP, God forbid, I would vote for Romney and Huntsman. They are each more moderate than the others. Romney looks and speaks presidential in my opinion.
Perry and Bachmann are trying to woo the same people, so Perry will lead in this. Palin may as well give up. Except that she wants to sell her books in which she has made millions.
Perry is an expert at campaigns. He will tell any audience what they want to hear (pandering). That is how he has already won so many times. People believe him.
OK we had another big debate last night and it is becoming even more apparent that Perry is the one that the “powers-that-be” want us to vote for. Again the MSM has virtually ignored Ron Paul while talking about the other front runners and some not so front runners. Yet many polls show him to be right up there with the “best(?) of them”.
