Ron Paul’s Turn

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Dec• 23•11

If you run to be President of the United States, you have to be scrutinized, down to the very last word. It’s now Ron Paul’s turn to be vetted in the news media, and lingering words from old newsletters published under his name are fair game. 

The language in the newsletters is racist, and Paul has long denied that he penned the words.  In a CNN interview yesterday, he defended himself, saying he had “six or seven” employees at the time he was publishing the news letters, one or more than one of whom wrote the offensive remarks.  

I like and respect Ron Paul for his convictions, but that’s not good enough.  The subscription newsletters were published by him.  If he didn’t write the language in question, we need to know who did.  Mr. Paul is running to be President of the United States, and he is being taken seriously by the press. He needs to give a serious answer, and that means providing a name or names.
