Awesome.
Seriously, I really don't care about Ron Paul, didn't even bother looking up his info.
Just seems like a crass thing for anyone to say, let alone someone that is supposed to represent other Americans.

For those who think the statement isn't repugnant... couldn't the peaceniks say the same about a soldier killed on a battlefield?

LOL!
Yup, Islamic aggression merited that response, and if they keep up the BS we'll go liberate the hell out of some more countries.

Ron paul proves himself an inconsiderate prick unless he walks this back with an apology to the mans wife and children.

It's still speculation only if the guy was there for treatment. His initial statement seems to say the guy got what he deserved.


What a jerk.

Both were well justified s/p 9/11. One directly, the other indirectly, but well justified just the same.



Fork 'em. Pick a fight with us, and you get a fight back this time. Better luck next time. Next time, we should just break them completely, WWII style, drop every bridge, destroy every power plant and water purification plant, every building above 4 stories, every dam, every port......... and leave them for their neighbors to pick the carcass clean.


We should not pick a fight, but we should finish the next one with extreme prejudice.

OBL used his opinion that we were a paper tiger to motivate his troops. Can't have that, can we?

That doesn't excuse dismissing the loss of someone who would appear to be a true American hero.

... or loan them the money to rebuild, with certain conditions applied.

It's still speculation on if the murderer was a PTSD patient. Give it time, it will come out.

Which makes Paul's lame arsed tweet all that more reprehensible.

Agreed.

But my point is simply that even if true, this comment is reprehensible. It's not like he took the guy out to kill him - assuming he was suffering from PTSD, it would certainly appear to any sane person that his intentions were pure.

Ron Paul has thrown his lot in with with the Code Pink crazies on this one, the live by the sword commend implies that this guy and his family deserved what he got.

I'd probably ask Dr. Paul to apologize and walk this statement back if I ran into him, well, I'd ask nicely the first time.

Im still waiting for anyone to state that the contents of the tweet were inaccurate. All Im seeing is a bunch of "hurt feelings" that the tweet didn't sufficiently smooch Kyle's uniformed ass enough. Since when are conservatives so PC and emotionally driven??

I know, I know, cold hard truth of the ramifications of our never-ending war economy is repugnant to those that worship the state and it's military wing but Paul has never been known to sugarcoat his stances. The same "outraged" voices on this thread are the same ones that have always disagreed with Paul's non-interventionist platform. But hey, let's keep up the military and war worship and see if that serves the GOP better in the next election :eyeroll It's been working oh so well lately with all the elections we're winning.....

Or you could just look at his Twitter feed and see that a clarification and (somewhat of an) apology has already been posted. Naaa that's too difficult. It's easier to just threaten a 77 year old with violence, right? Thanks for proving his point. I see a sword in your future.

must....defend.....messiah,....... logic be damned.

G19G20, when the senile old bastage sticks his foot into his mouth up to his knee, it's OK to let him try to apologize on his own.

His remarks were ill informed, as they were made on speculation only, and highly insensitive considering the man involved left two young children and a wife behind, and Dorker Paul implied that he deserved what he got.

What a tool he is, and what a bent tool you are to defend that.

Since I guarantee next to no one posting on this thread bothered to follow up on Paul's twitter feed, here's a Twitter linked to his Facebook made a few hours ago.

I'm pretty sure his wife does.

His kids might. You know what, I hope your loved ones get to feel like they feel right now some day.

Karma dude.

I didn't see an apology or acknowledgement that he was an insensitive tool anywhere in that.

It does nothing for me. You can be one of his disciples until the senile bastage croaks. What he has said on twitter recently has really illustrated just how stupid and politically inept the old fart really is. Rand better hope his dad is gone before he tries to run for president, as this stuff is coming back up.
