Univision's GOP Debate
Will Have to Wait

First, the CNN/YouTube debate. Now, it's the Hispanic forum.

Citing "scheduling conflicts" among the Republican presidential candidates, Univision, the country's leading Spanish-language channel, announced that the first-ever Hispanic forum featuring GOP hopefuls has been postponed. It was originally scheduled for Sept. 16, a week after the Democrats take the stage in a similar forum at the University of Miami. Univision said it's working with the Republicans to find a later date. So far only Sen. John McCain -- whose support for the failed immigration reform bill has proved costly among many conservative voters -- has signed up.

The pressure's on the Republicans. As ever, Florida is considered a swing state.

Good Point James.
The good Dr. is always ready to share his leadership in a debate.

I will email the Ron Paul 2008 group regarding the no-show/no response. Usually the media prefers to NOT include him in media platforms.

In the meantime:
Brief Overview of Congressman Paul's Record:

He has never voted to raise taxes.
He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
He has never taken a government-paid junket.
He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Patriot Act.
He voted against regulating the Internet.
He voted against the Iraq war.

He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

Viva Ron Paul!

Hmmm. You know, if you check Ron Paul's schedule on his website, he doesn't even have a single event listed for September 16. There's not an event on September 17 until 4 pm. So of course Ron Paul has the space on his schedule to make the debate. This makes me wonder just what Ron Paul's problem with Hispanic voters might be.
