THOSE WACKY POLITICIANS
Is this Red China?
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The chairman of the Michigan Republican Party said Wednesday that he will try to bar Ron Paul from future GOP presidential debates because of remarks the Texas congressman made that suggested the Sept. 11 attacks were the fault of U.S. foreign policy.
Michigan party chairman Saul Anuzis said he will circulate a petition among Republican National Committee members to ban Paul from more debates. At a GOP candidates’ debate Tuesday night, Paul drew attacks from all sides, most forcefully from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, when he linked the terror attacks to U.S. bombings.
“Have you ever read about the reasons they attacked us? They attack us because we’ve been over there. We’ve been bombing Iraq for 10 years,” Paul said.
And that’s today’s America for you. Have a dissenting viewpoint, one that offends anyone and you are banned. We shouldn’t analyze or discuss his viewpoint–we should just ban him from participating in “debates”. What a terrible joke. Maybe I’ll start a petition to ban Saul Anuzis. If he thinks people bomb other countries merely because they ‘hate our freedom’, he can come out of the machine now. The cycle is done and he’s all washed.
“And I think that he is a distraction in the Republican primary and he does not represent the base and he does not represent the party,” Anuzis said during an RNC state leadership meeting.
“Given what he said last night it was just so off the wall and out of whack that I think it was more detrimental than helpful.”
Hey Saul, the ‘party’ needs a new line anyway.
