On Larry King’s show, Ron Paul acted like a housewife with a black eye defending her abusive husband by claiming it wouldn’t have happened if she hadn’t burned his dinner. “We need to figure out how to cook better” is also Paul’s insane solution to terrorists who seek to do far more than blacken our eyes.

Paul says we don’t need only focus on stopping the terrorists (as is Ben Stein’s approach), but rather that we need to figure out why they hate us — which is mostly “because we’re occupiers,” according to Paul.

That’s the problem, Congressman. Yes, we are “occupiers” — occupiers of the earth — and they want to wipe us out for it. Were the Americans working high up in the World Trade Centers on 9/11 “occupiers”?

Ron Paul is getting so nuts that his next campaign should be sponsored by Planters.

Sheila Jackson Lee has never looked so sane:

    I am with Dr. Paul on this one. The US will continue to be a target as long as it keeps meddling in the affairs of other countries and supports dictators abroad.

    This is so great– Stein may be right

    It took a few years of reading up on our history, but I also am now with Ron Paul. We would do well to heed Reagan's advice on our Middle East foreign policy.

    We didn't exactly burn anyone's dinner — we killed hundreds of thousands of people (indirectly through sanctions, and directly with bombs etc.), we occupied their countries and we keep installing corrupt governments. In your analogy, we're the battered spouse who got battered only after cutting off her husband's penis.

    May you yahoos join YOUR president as he goes around the world apologizing for America while bowing to Kings and sucking up to Dictators.

    Ron Paul has a right to his opinion as do all of his supporters. However, it almost sounds pretty traitorous to come out with that statement excusing terrorists. I saw that video on another site a few days ago and immediately unsubscribed from Campaign for Liberty Daily Updates.

    abused spouse syndrome — reaching much?

    Because Ron Paul has been abused?

    What a weird comparison.

    He doesn't say it is the US's FAULT but that our occupation to stop terrorism is actually leading to recruitment of more, hence, justified or not, it isn't productive to continue occupation.
