Finally! Ron Paul is NOT a Racist!

So I'm very sure most of you people that pay attention to politics have heard recent attempts to smear Ron Paul's character by drudging up old newsletters by the New Republic that has his name attached to articles making racist comments. However, no one seems to point out that Ron Paul not only admits his mistake for allowing his name to be used by other writers, but he has also taken greater concern for what is published under his name. But now NAACP's President, Nelson Linder, states quite clearly that Ron Paul is not a racist, and coming from the President of the most well-known civil rights organization in the United States, I think case is closed. Mr. Linder says of Ron Paul, "If you scare the folks that have the money, they're going to attack you and they're going to take it out of context."

And what I find so... frustrating is how Romney says, "Hey, could we focus on issues and not personal attacks?" whenever McCain brings up Romney's record of flip-flopping, but as soon as Ron Paul states the truth, Romney is free to say, "I think Ron Paul should stop reading press releases." Double-standard if I ever saw one.
