I was quite disappointed by the debate altogether. But I wouldn’t expect much from Fox News. The hosts ask Dr. Paul questions like “Congressman Paul, yet another question of electability…. do you have any, sir?” and in one case (not in this video) he was asked a new question before answering the question the other candidates had all just answered.

But Ron was never caught unprepared nor did he stumble over these questions. His answers were clear and based on his philosophy of the constitution. This is what distinguishes him from all the other ‘mainstream’ candidates – Ron Paul actually gives consistently sensible answers.

The polls [at the end of this video] were filmed live – twice – and proved Ron Paul to be the winner with 35% and 32%.

Shame on FOX news. YouTube is already loaded with videos that demonstrate the effects of Fox News’ exclusion of Ron Paul from the debate. This obviously causes a severe blow to the Fox News reputation for corruption and bad journalism.

Also watch this video about Rupert Murdoch – owner of Fox News.

CONCORD – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen releases the following statement regarding Sunday’s Republican forum on FOX:

“The first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary serves a national purpose by giving all candidates an equal opportunity on a level playing field. Only in New Hampshire do lesser known, lesser funded underdogs have a fighting chance to establish themselves as national figures. Consistent with that tradition, we believe all recognized major candidates should have an equal opportunity to participate in pre-primary debates and forums.

“This principle applies to tonight’s debates on ABC as well as Sunday’s planned forum on FOX. The New Hampshire Republican Party believes Congressmen Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter should be included in the FOX forum on Sunday evening. Our mutual efforts to resolve this difference have failed.”

“While we understand that FOX News continues to move forward it is with regret, the New Hampshire Republican Party hereby withdraws as a partner in this forum.”

The New Hampshire Republican Party had been sponsoring a brunch forum with presidential candidates to be broadcast on Fox News.[84] Candidates Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter were not invited to this event, despite the fact that Paul polls higher, and has raised significantly more money than Fred Thompson, who has been invited. Ron Paul got 10 percent of the Iowa vote while Guliani who was invited got just 3 percent. Fox News said they had only enough room for so many candidates as a reason why Paul and Hunter were not invited. [85][86] This caused Paul supporters to send a number of protest letters to the Fox News network.[87] New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen released a statement on the 31st of December regarding the primary weekend debates where he mentions the exclusion; “Limiting the number of candidates who are invited to participate in debates is not consistent with the tradition of the first in the nation primary. The level playing field requires that all candidates be given an equal opportunity to participate – not just a select few determined by the media prior to any votes being cast.”[88][89] On January 5th, 2008, following Fox News’ continued refusal to allow Paul into the forum, the New Hampshire Republican Party withdrew their sponsorship of the event.[86]

To see the Republican debate in New Hampshire on January 5th 2008, go to this YouTube playlist.

Ron Paul didn’t seem to get much time to speak in this debate – a great deal of which seems to have been the chattering, frustrated, defensive and offensive Romney. Thompson and Huckabee perform fairly, speaking more sense than Giuliani, McCain, and Romney combined. But Ron Paul delivers more important insight into the issues discussed throughout the debate.

Ron Paul is surely the winner of this debate, but the ABC polls seem to have disappeared.

Part 9 of 9:
