Hello and welcome to freedom watch I'm actually web stake in for jobs in a volatile -- tonight the latest poll on the race to become -- Republican nominee to run against President Obama has the GOP scrambling.
Let's face it nearly panic king ahead of the Iowa Caucuses.
The poll by public policy polling has Newt Gingrich -- rapidly dropping now the third and congressman -- poll leading the pack in Iowa.
It seems that mutes losses the congress some polls gain now cumbersome always trying to capitalize on the momentum.
Attacking some of his Republican challenges in a -- tonight show in -- view.
He's to be governor of Massachusetts right maybe.
That's what he should stay.
-- -- I could get rich he may be should run for speaker of the -- host of the -- Michelle Bachmann.
Doesn't -- Muslim she hates most.
-- -- -- -- How about -- some uncharacteristically tough language coming from -- poll.
I will turning to the attacks helped the dark horse candidate -- south -- appalled -- -- he is president of the future of Freedom Foundation and Jacob.
Well he's always complaining -- -- gets enough coverage from the media he's on the Tonight Show for crying out loud.
Well that's right I mean things that tides are turning a little bit the media is recognizing that the the American people -- those in Iowa are discovering that Ron Paul is different from these other.
Big government Republicans.
And there -- surging toward his campaign.
They're learning what we've learned we've learned about this man 2530 years ago.
Yeah on the principle.
And he stands his ground well he doesn't now he's going on the attack do you think that's a deploy.
Well you know -- tonight show you could tell that it was that there was some lighthearted moments there was there was an air of light hearted news.
There was some smiling there was give and take so it's hard to tell.
Where Iran was really be -- deadly serious and where he would just -- -- humorous heaven a humorous exchange would Jay Leno.
But clearly -- like when he's talking about -- month he's drawing a line there he's saying look.
We're we're we've Bob enough countries -- we've killed enough people it's time to bring the troops home and Bachmann is taking the opposite.
Now we need to bomb Iran we need to start another war we need to get more people angry at us we need more terrorist retaliation.
-- it's not exactly what she's saying but that's a logical consequence.
He's just drawing the distinction and people are responding saying we've had enough of this and that's why they're going to his campaign yet I'm betting.
-- -- let me just jump in here with the death of Kim Jong-Il in North Korea that really does bring up foreign policy back into -- Cross -- and let's face it Ron Paul has been severely criticize full basically his son.
-- -- you'll just get along approach problem towards Iran and really the country is being.
I would like someone who perhaps is stronger who can stand up to the north Koreans a mysterious country -- best.
My how would you respond to those critics about his firm policy.
Well that's that's exactly where people are surging and his campaign they're recognizing that this.
Stand up to all these dictatorships why you're supporting other dictatorships.
Just isn't working and -- bringing a new paradigm to to the country is saying -- Let's demobilize Cold -- -- over you know we've -- relations with Vietnam we've got relations with China why in our relations with Korea.
Why not this stand down with this mobilization.
Perpetual crisis mindset.
And start looking toward diplomacy looking to trade looking to cultural interactions with groups instead of this militaristic.
Bottom of that off your problematic -- we know that Iran for instance is trying to build up its nuclear power do you really just what -- pajama around them and say come on guys -- all get along.
It simply doesn't work with some countries.
Actually we heard this with Iraq same thing is just act two of the same play.
Saddam is coming -- mushroom clouds over American cities smoking gun.
We've heard all this nonsense it's bogus it's -- is just as bogus as it was with a rock.
That's what Ron's been -- but absent that look at who has who's surrounded its American troops that have Iran surrounded.
Who was it that knocked out -- democratically elected prime minister in 1953.
And stalled a brutal dictator there for the next 25 years I mean no wonder if people are defensive.
You know we're not saying playing mr.
nice guy we're just saying stop the regime change operations stop the invasion stop the occupations.
Stop attacking democracy like the CIA didn't Iran in 1950 alright Jay Jay -- -- one last question is so -- get back to this country and down.
Why do you think he's going up in the polls is it just because of the independent minded islands.
And what's the biggest attribute do you think the voters find -- him.
He stands against out of control federal spending and debt he's presented a plan for abolishing departments and agencies and people recognize he's not your standard big government conservatives that preaches free enterprise mantras he means what he says.
He's sincere he's credible.
He's a nice guy I mean there's not an -- of arrogance in this man I don't for 2530 years.
He and his wife for -- to of the nicest people I've ever met.
People are recognizing.
This is a different quality of Canada.
And that's why I think there -- certain and his campaign.
