Newt rightfully hits back at the moderators and Ron Paul makes a little sense in Reagan GOP debate


Last night at the Republican debate at the Reagan Presidential Library two candidates had the best “sound bite” points of the night.

No, it wasn’t Rick Perry or Mitt Romney.

Oddly enough, it was two of the least likely candidates to win the nomination — Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.

First, from Newt Gingrich, a forceful and accurate takedown of the media, Brian Williams-MSNBC, John Harris of Politico, and their biased questioning:

While honest debate and questioning is what debates are made of….I thought Newt was spot on in pointing out the methods used by the left-wing moderators in an effort to create the appearance of MAJOR differences between candidates where there may not be any.

From HotAir:

Greg Hengler (Townhall.com) brings us the clip from last night’s debate where Gingrich rips into NBC’s Brian Williams and Politico’s John Harris for their attempts to create rhetorical mountains out of insubstantial molehills of differences in the policy positions between the GOP candidates, declaring himself uninterested in “puffing up” attempts to make Republicans fight each other in order to take the focus off of Barack Obama.

And Ron Paul, as it turns out, had the the last words of last nights debate…and it was one of the best rants he has made.  While discussing welfare, he spoke about the fact that it is wrong to assume that those who love and strive for liberty are not compassionate or caring.  And he made it clear that government is not the only entity that can effectively tackle the issue of the poor and welfare.

On this video, skip over to about the 11:54 mark and to hear the remark I am referring to.

Ron Paul is not the most articulate of the contenders, and often he is flat out wrong, but I give him his due on this one!
