In a stunning segment of the Ed Show on Thursday, Ed Schultz and Ron Paul discuss the growing groundswell of support to audit the Federal Reserve – and are on the same page!

Said Schultz on the increasingly deafening silence of the White House on this issue:

"If you’ve got 313 people on board in the House who want to audit the Fed, it would seem to me that the White House would want to take a stand on this one way or another."

Separately, when asked about the new surge, Paul said of Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, and Barack Obama:

"I think they do support Bush’s doctrine on preventive war....   And I believe that principal is going to be used to expand the war into Pakistan – they talk about Pakistan a lot right now, so I think it’s very, very dangerous."

Ed Schultz and Ron Paul agreeing.  Interesting times indeed.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Actually they're not supporting the Bush doctrine (0+ / 0-)

    Pre-emptive warfare versus preventative.  Bush doctrine focused on the former.  The latter goes along with determining whether there would be an imminent strike against the United States.  That's something the Obama admin adheres to.  

    I believe Bob Gates talked about it during one of the questions.

    •  Clinton supported the Bush doctrine when (0+ / 0-)

      she cast her vote for a preventative assault on Iraq.

      If she had a change of heart, and decided that it's not ok to attack another Nation just because its Leaders say things that piss us off while building up their armed forces, I wish she'd make that public.

      The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out the conservative adopts them. After they become harmful the reactionary defends them.

  •  yes, it's called the everyday workings (0+ / 0-)

    of the federal govt.

  •  Axis of Evil -- (0+ / 0-)

    Would that be dictators Ahmadinejad of Iran , Saddam Hussein formerly of Iraq, Hamad Karzai of Afghanistan, and Kim Jung Il of North Korea OR Larry Summers, Robert Rubin, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Tim Geithner, Henry Paulson, and the remainder of the thieving gang of Wall Street Weasels and their Congressional enablers?!

  •  On auditing the Federal Reserve (5+ / 0-)

    According to the Inspector General, we (taxpayers) are on the hook for up to $23 Trillion in toxic crap (CDOs, CDSs, etc). Why aren't all the tranactions being made public. Oh yeah, that pesky thing called 'public outrage' -- which politicians find interesting but ignorable.

    Ok Mr. Obama, we'll take that 'Change' any freakin time now.
