Republicans: Night of the Long Knives hunting for Ron Paul
Dick Lugar: ...we're a -- a party and a -- a president of leadership, leadership in the world," he said. "We have a fleet that covers all the seas, that, as a matter of fact, makes foreign trade possible, trade of all sorts. We're the only country that can go everywhere all over the world, and, therefore, indispensable to our allies as well as to our own interests."
Huckabee: Though Paul's organization in Iowa is first-rate and his support base is extremely dedicated, Hucakbee said Paul's foreign policy views are "anathema to the Republicans, much less to Democrats and what I call middle-of-the-road people."
"He has a core of fanatical believers, but they do not represent the mainstream of America," Huckabee said, contending that Paul's remarks that he would not try to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon go "beyond off the edge."
Dick Morris: “Ron Paul remains terrifying. He is really the ultimate liberal in the race. He wants to legalize drugs, repeal the Patriot Act, slash our military spending, pull out of Afghanistan, and remove all limits on abortion. On these issues, he’s way, way to the left of Obama.
What does it tell you, Patriots, that the candidate who takes George Washington's foreign policy positions is considered heretical to the Establishment?
Ron Paul is the only candidate who looks at the Constitution with respect, rather than disgust and derision.
The Establishment will stop at nothing to keep him from the nomination. There have been serious discussions inside the Beltway about forcing delegates to defy the primary races if Ron Paul wins, and to cast their votes for Mitt at the convention.
2012 will be filled with potential triggers for turning the divisions in this republic hot.
