Paul Slams Neo-Con Graham For “Angry White Guys” Jibe

During a town hall meeting on Tuesday night, Graham was heckled by the audience and called a “traitor” for his decision to back Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and for his support for climate change legislation.

“The troubles all started Sunday, when Graham co-wrote an Op-Ed article with Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John Kerry in the New York Times called “Yes We Can (Pass Climate Change Legislation),” which talked about their campaign to corral bipartisan support for climate change legislation,” reports the L.A. Times.

During the meeting, protesters responded to Graham’s claim that he would grow the Republican party by shouting, “Ron Paul would grow it,” to which Graham retorted, “We’re not going to be the Ron Paul party.”

“We’re not going to be the party of angry white guys,” said Graham."

During a subsequent CNN segment, Ron Paul responded to Graham by asking him why he has abandoned traditional conservative principles by supporting big government, renewing the Patriot Act, TARP funds, as well as Obama’s expansion of the war in Afghanistan.

“What does he have against the Constitution?” asked Paul.

“For him to say that everybody who is upset with the government and upset with his type of voting record are ‘angry white men’ – that is preposterous, that is a real insult,” said Paul, adding that the people who attended his rallies were from diverse backgrounds.

Republican Party launches new website

Republican Party launches new website

The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Tuesday launched a new website featuring a flurry of blogs, social-networking tools and information on party history.

First-time visitors to the site will be greeted by a digital Michael Steele, the RNC chairman, who walks on the screen to introduce the new site.

"We're building a digital space that grassroots Republicans can finally call home," the miniature Steele says.

The site has a page on Republican heroes, everyday Republican "faces" and a timeline of GOP accomplishments. (They might want to come up with something to add for the period between 2004 and 2008.)

Until they have that site plastered with images of Congressman Ron Paul and a refresher course on the Constitution, I'm afraid their attempts are in vain. The GOP doesn't have to be "Hip" to get the youth vote. They need to return to their core values and stop trying to out do Democrats at big government and never ending war.

I'm only a republican because of Ron Paul; otherwise I'm a Libertarian. The GOP will never come back until it recognizes the Ron Paul R3VOLution. The Constitutution is the foundation of political success. Until the GOP has candidates who uphold our Constitution, like Ron Paul does, it will just be another flavor. FULL STORY
