That's a good get... and I don't want to seem like I'm dumping on it or anything, but does the program air at 11:30 on the east coast? I think a lot of people might be in bed by then, especially on a weeknight.

They said the same thing about Huckabee the night before the Iowa Primary. A lot of folks think that performance helped him. Who knows? All I know is that Leno has a large audience of Americans and that it isn't going to hurt to be on his show, whether it matters in NH or not.

At one time, Ron Paul was a trendsetter, launching successful internet-based moneybombs. Now he's just another copycat.

You midwesterners get your evening news nice and early...at 10:00. I'm so jealous!

Pat, i don't think it's a ploy RP will take any opportunity to get the message out. I don't think he stays up all night looking for anything another candidate does to make sure he copies it.

Actually, all the top tier guys, supposedly, have sounded more like Paul as time as gone on with the exception of Huckabee. They've all tried some of the same things Paul's folks have tried with net fundraising and naming them after Historical Events.

Yup! Ron is the real trendsetter! :thumb:

Paul got top billing. Last time we had to suffer through a Tom Cruise interview before he was on. Hopefully this means he's the first guest.

Wow! Jay Leno was crusading tonight! Take that Fox News!

The first segment was a little choppy. Paul seemed to be trying to keep it too surface. The second segment Leno got him redirected and made him go deeper on the issues and it was classic Paul. Great interview! Definitely worth every bit of Paul missing the debate.

Yup. First part sucked, but the second part where he got into WHY you should vote for him was great.

Huckabee has been pimping the idea of getting rid of the IRS recently Paul was sayin that back in May. I guess it's even now.

Yeah, difference is Paul has a very logical, reasonable plan to get rid of the IRS, and the income tax, and replace them with nothing. (As per my sig.)

Honestly, getting rid of the income tax with no replacement would be much easier than implementing the Fair Tax. Don't get me wrong, I'll take the Fair Tax if Mike Huckabee could pull it off, but everybody including him knows he won't.

Paul's been calling for getting rid of the IRS for a lot longer than that and Huckabee embraced the FAIR Tax (which includes the repeal of the income tax) quite a while ago.

I don't see that as a difference. The FAIR tax people have just as much of a "logical, reasonable plan" as Ron Paul does. And neither of them have any hope of getting their plans implemented.

I'm with you though, I'd be happy with either of their plans if they could pull it off.

I was too busy watching the SEC beat up the little eleven to catch Leno.

I forgot about this opposing the national championship game.
