Ron Paul Is All Talk And No Action

Rolling Stone Reporter Matt Taibbi's latest investigative report is being hailed as an eye-opening examination of Texas Congressman and Perennial Presidential Candidate Ron Paul. The story, titled "The Real Ron Paul" is rumored to have taken Taibbi a year to research. Taibbi is refusing to comment on the article until it's published; prompting many to speculate that the article may end the political career of Paul. Two months prior to publication, Rollingstone is allowed the press early access to the three sections of the articles. Many agree that the article will create a firestorm around the already controversial Paul.



The article reveals an intense hatred of Paul's anti-government policies by his Democratic coworkers. Nancy Pelosi is quoted saying "To hear Ron Paul, a highly paid government official, say that the government is wasting money is like hearing Snoop Dog say he's tired of rappers smoking pot. The man has been in government drawing an ever increasing salary for 35 years longer than 45% of Americans have been alive- face it the guy talks a big game but he has never, nor will he ever deliver."



More surprisingly the article reveals senior Republican leadership is growing increasingly annoyed by Paul's PR machine. A source close to Speaker of the House John Boehner is quoted in the article quipping "Ron Paul, a libertarian? I don't care what he claims to be- during votes he's a good boy and votes the way the adults tell him to." In fact, the article reveals multiple instances in which the Congressman compromises his principles by voting for stricter regulation, government expansions, harsher drug penalties, and annual pay raises for himself.



Paul's own staff are frustrated with Paul's lack of accomplishments. A former intern laments "I joined the to help audit the fed, but all i ended up doing was scheduling tv appearances for him to talk about the Fed and helping him write his book about auditing the Fed."



The article's controversy online cannot be understated. News site Fark.com had one message board that had so many posts the website stopped counted and instead listed the total number of messages as "too many". Reddit.com, was put into "emergency read-only" mode after thousands of responses to an altered picture titled "Scumbag Ron Paul" flooded the company's sole server. Conservative website worldnetdaily.com* had to ban users from using the word Taibbi after many users called for his death while others demanded to see "Taibbi's birth certificate".



The article has transformed, the normally private reporter into a semi-celebrity. On Friday, FoxNews showed a TMZ.com video of Taibbi receiving a foot rub from girl friend Jessica Gomes while having a picnic lunch in New York's central park. Anchor Megan Kelly asked viewrs "how can anyone based out of the liberal haven of New York City, where sexual acts could be performed in a children's park could be unbiased in their coverage of a Washington DC?"



*Editors note: An earlier version of the article incorrectly referred to worldnetdaily.com as worldnutdaily.com The spelling error was not intentional and we regret the mistake. We ask that worldnutdaily readers direct any further complaints to devnull@rumormiller.com.

Ron Paul gives a speech touting his belief that all drugs should be legal; shortly before voting to expand funding of the DEA's use of predator drones over major us cities to identify drug offenders.

    Bento, I would have an evolution-denying Ron Paul boerfe any of the other Republican candidates. And as a Spinozist he is still without equal, I am afraid. Just a lot more doctrinaire than you or I would be. What in particular do you object to (pretend you never noticed his evolution remarks) with Dr Paul? How exactly is he similar to Ross Perot and is that bad?Mike B is simply not running, so forget about it. However, McCain seems to have ended his faustian pact with the religious whack-jobs, and I find myself drawn more and more to him as I realise the full extent of the Coyote morning I have got myself into with Rom Paul.Verc, nice try but Dr Ron's denial of evolution coupled with his remarks about how he thinks The Creator should have done things (see the link) does not make me think he has made the leaps in the articles you link to.wcw, I am curious, how is Ron Paul racist? The US constitution I always thought of as a very universalist document, and as far as I can see a lot of his more controversial positions are based on an (entertainingly whacko) fundamentalist reading of that.
