Open thread for Ron Paul Debate discussion

That sound you would have heard as Ron Paul gave his "we asked for it" response to the 9/11 question would have been the air being let out of the Ron Paul campaign, if there was any air in it to begin with.

His response showed an utter lack of political skill. The nation simply will not accept a candidate that holds those feelings and is so willing to state them.

Buh-bye. Please fly with us again.

Not so fast cowboy. 70% of the American people believe we should be out of Iraq. National Review Online and some other sites -- can't remember after the flurry of last night's online activities -- said Ron Paul was right and that Giuliani both disregarded the facts and misrepresented Ron Paul. See also Dr Paul having it out with Hannity following the debate, aka Ron Paul Owns Hannity.

Oh, and did you get text-in, vote-once-only, cheater-proof numbers from Faux News?
You Decide GOP Primary Poll Results:
— 29% Romney
— 25% Paul
— 19% Giuliani

Don't know how they can spin THIS like they did Paul's poll wins in the previous debate.

For the record AGAIN, he did not say "we asked for it." That's where you guys lose credibility, when you misrepresent statements and malign anyone who disagrees with you. Why do you think support for the war is slipping away? Could it be that people are waking up to the fascist, bull-headed attitude of the "at any cost" crowd? Giuliani represented your dwindling numbers well last night.

Here's a good rehash of what Ron Paul said and the interruption by Giuliani, The Nation via Yahoo News.
