    Good Job Ron Paul! I also thank Anderson Cooper for not being completely biased in his interview. Anderson had his gracious moments, even though the questions were all negative.

    Thanks for appearing on CNN Ron Paul. I support your 2012 presidential run!

    I think Ron Paul is absolutely right when he talks about the debt problem we have in this country. How is more debt going to solve the real issue we have which is spending.

    Seriously...if you can't relax and listen to the logic that this man professes, you are doomed to failure. We need to stop posturing and start fixing the root problem, which is that we spend too much money! RonPaul2012

    i just hope america is smart enough to put there religious beliefs aside on gay marriage and pick this guy. that's the main reason for the worlds problems forget your false god for a minute and focus on whats going on now inless your ok with just laying down and waiting to get killed. make the right choice for 2012. i have never voted in my life and i lean to a democrat side because where not uptight like republicans and bible beaters but this guy should be our new President.

    Dr. Paul is just about the only guy in Washington who talks about the real issues and stays out of the political mud. Which is why most americans ignore his run for the white house. Unfortunately the typical american voter votes for style over substance

    Thank you for having Ron Paul on. There is a growing population in this country that is jaded about our government, and Ron Paul really connects with us.

    Ron Paul has it right about anger – the louder and more angry people sound, the more wrong they are in my experience. Use logic, not decibels.

    why is this man not our president? he spends decades being the only man to predict most of our fiscal problems and try to stop them while everyone else laughs??!!! wake up america this man is an honest constitutionalist his presidency would be best for EVERY class level. debt is the disease that causes all of these other side effects, stop treating the side effects by making the disease worse. its common sense. time to turn things around. ron paul 2012. god bless america..

    The Boehner Plan vote has been postponed because John Boehner can't seem to get enough votes.
    Imagine that happening in the 2012 elections. Scenario: Biden – Mr. President, it seem that the Palin/Bachman ticket is gaining in all of the polls. President Obama – OK then, just cancel the election.

    John King says the junior Republican Tea Party Congress members are not excited about Boehner's plan because they feel that he is partially responsible for the current situation.

    They're even ready to risk default under the juvenile heading of "We'll show them." Kinda like letting their houses burn down to teach their parents not to play with matches.
