Dream Team? Rosie and Ron Paul…

Just a quickie here, but has anyone noticed how closely aligned Rosie O’Donnell of The View and Ron Paul, one of the outsiders in the race for the 2008 Presidency, are in terms of their political outlook?

Both O’Donnell and Paul have an interpretation of 9/11 that is significantly different from the established facts that millions saw unfolding in front of their eyes on live television. O’Donnell throws her weight behind the 9/11 conspiracy theories and sees Bush as beling involved in a huge cover-up of the ‘facts.’ Paul lays the blame for 9/11 firmly at the feet of the victims themselves and of America as a whole.

It is obscene that these opinions gather so much support and attention. While freedom of speech is one thing, dishonouring the innocent victims and their families with these ludicrous claims is unforgivable. Luckily, both have been defeated in the eyes of the public recently: Giuliani tore a strip off Paul in the last Republican debate for his 9/11 views, while Elisabeth Hasselbeck pulled the carpet from under O’Donnell’s feet on The View this week.

Paul demonstrates why he is not fit to run for President with his ‘the terrorists are not to blame’ manifesto. O’Donnell shows she is not fit to be on mainstream television with her mindless repetition of extremist, anti-American conspiracy propaganda.

Both fail to see the bigger picture. Both seem to hate what America stands for. They would make a dream team. Not politically, but rather as a comedy duo. Unfortunately, we’ve grown tired of the Bush-bashing, anti-American, ‘blame us not the terrorist’ approach.

    Ron Paul doesn’t lay the blame on the american people. He stated he laid the blame on bad policy that let america continue to bomb the people of iraq at least every year for 10 years prior to 9/11. Bombs do nothing but breed hate. Ron Paul doesn’t hate america either, he stands for the consitution which he sees is being terribly undermined. The public that do stand behind both Rosie and Ron are being silenced by the media – that’s why you’ll find so much support online. Also you may want to watch 9/11: Press for Truth a film made by the families of the victims of 9/11. Many of them have questions that haven’t been answered and if we stand for the victims of 9/11 maybe we should all take the families questions very seriously.

    I think the likeness ends there. There position on the Second Amendment and almost any constitutional issue would differ quite drastically. Ron Paul being a strict constructionist and Rosie being a liberal who interprets the Constitution in whatever way feels best to her.

    I see Rosie’s point of view as more closely aligned with Giulliani’s. Both are heavily partisan and have nothing to do with facts or reality. Rosie says our government (the Bush administration) secretly perpetrated the attacks, which has been adequately debunked by many intelligent sources (as a ridiculous statement like that should). Rudy aligns himself with the “They attacked us for our freedom” crowd (who want to fix things by taking those freedoms away). This mythology is just as ludicrous. It’s even more dangerous because these guys are currently running our foreign policy based on this lie. Ron Paul suggests that maybe we should be looking at CIA reports that detail the motives of why the terrorists are attacking the US and what the implications of some of OUR GOVERNMENT’S foreign policy have been. I would suggest you do the same. Perhaps check out the “Summer Reading List” he assigned Rudy in his 5/24 press conference. Paul is no “911 Truther”, but he IS a realist.

    I disagree with the author. Other than both Rosie and Ron Paul being anti-war, their views on many of the isses are miles apart.

    Your blog misrepresents or misunderstands Paul’s position.

    Mr. Paul claims that the United States’ policy of intervention in the Middle East may have unintended consequences. We overthrew the government in Iran (because it nationalized the oil industry) and installed a brutal dictator; we armed Osama bin Laden, and gave rise to Islamic militancy; we armed Saddam Hussain to fight Iran; etc., etc.

    These acts have consequences, and may actually give the Islamic militants ammunition to recruit more terrorists.

    Also, in case you haven’t noticed, it appears that the public and media (other than Fox) think Mr. Paul got the better of Mr. Giuliani in the exchange. I, for one, never heard of Mr. Paul until the exchange. However, I read his website, realized he made sense, and even contributed money to his campaign. i think there are many other similarly-situated voters.

    It’s funny, you claim Paul fails to see the “bigger picture”, yet the following people agree with him on foreign policy:

    Micheal Sheuer – Former head of CIA Bin Laden Unit
    Phillip Girialdi – Former CIA counter-terrorism agent
    Chalmers Johnson – Former CIA consultant
    Ray McGovern – Former CIA analyst

    Does this mean they’re all right and the establishment is wrong? Not necessarily – but should you dismiss they’re very thought out, well documented, and well defended positions without due dilligence? I wouldn’t.

    I’m a recovering war-hawk. I really wish I had read Congressman Paul’s speeches warning against the war before it started and maybe I could have been there from the beginning. Oh well, live and learn.

    BTW, I doubt you’d find much in common at all between Rosie and Paul aside from the war issue – Unless of course Rosie is a strict constructionist who would strip the federal government down to it’s constitutionally limited functions eliminating virtually all entitlements…and I doubt that.
