    Hi Anderson you avoided the real question that would have been the dream question for Senator Paul.
    If asked in congress to support the presidents action in Libya would you vote yeah or nay, or to get out of libya
    You allowed him to pontificate and sit on the fence.

    Please invite Senator Reid on to refute Mr. Paul's claims. Surely he has some explaining to do.

    hi , i just watched your interview with Ron Paul, an i was amazed what he said about not being able to get a vote on the floor. I started following politics about 4 years ago an i could not figure out which side of the fence i waS ON so i would watch some cnn an some fox and others, i picked couple shows from each an stuck with them. I never seen a politican be that honest , these people get on your show an others and tell us why we should vote for them , and how they are going to the hill to do the peoples work, but really it seems like they do the minimum job requirments just to get there check. I always wondered why i never seen my officials screaming at eachother during a debate like i see overseas on tv. Thats because we dont haVE any debates atleast they care enough to fight over it while our officials are to scared to say something wrong an lose there comfy paycheck. why is Ron Paul the first one to bring this up....... i am amazed..!
