Waiting for this

After the sparks at the debate last night, I was waiting for this response.

Ron Paul 2008: Press Release

Press Release

Why Hasn’t Rudy Giuliani Read the 9-11 Commission Report?

May 16, 2007


ARLINGTON, VA – During the "First in the South" GOP debate in South Carolina last night, one thing was made clear: Rudy Giuliani does not understand how to keep America safe.

When Congressman Ron Paul, who has long served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, explained how 50 years of American interventionism in the Middle East has helped compromise our national security, Giuliani interrupted saying he had "never heard anything so absurd." This statement is particularly troubling coming from the former mayor who tries to cast himself as a security expert, since Dr. Paul's point comes directly from the bi-partisan 9-11 Commission Report.

"Rudy Giuliani has tip-toed around the issues of abortion, guns and marriage. The only issue he has left is security, and he doesn't even get that right," said campaign chairman Kent Snyder. "It is clear from his interruption that former Mayor Giuliani has not read the 9-11 Commission Report and has no clue on how to keep America safe."

Oh and eventhough Giuliani's response got strong applause, most viewers seemed to agree with Ron Paul.
From the FoxNews text voting,
Mitt Romney: 29%
Ron Paul: 25%
Rudy Giuliani: 19%
And from the MSNBC online voting, Ron Paul has a 46% approval versus Giuliani's 24%
