MILLER: Well, it's like the third Mad Max film, "Thunderdome". Two enter, one leave. They got to that moment last night where Ron Paul, I think, just made Rudy the Republican candidate. That was like tee-ball. He came out and set it there, and Rudy knocked it out of the park. I think he's going to be the Republican nominee. And I think Huck Hound or whatever his name is out of Arkansas. I can't agree with Morris that he'll be the presidential — but I think he could be the VP, Huckabee Hound.FOXNews.com - Dennis Miller on Falwell; Opie & Anthony - Bill O’Reilly | The O’Reilly Factor
McCain, the frontrunner in South Carolina, even offered his support to Giuliani for his response to a remark by Texas Rep. Ron Paul that the United States' interventionist policy invited the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.FOXNews.com - GOP Candidates, Supporters Bask in Own Glory Following Feisty Debate - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum
"I thought Mayor Giuliani's intercession there was appropriate and frankly very, very excellent. I really appreciated it because we should never believe that we brought on this conflict. This is an evil force that is trying to destroy everything we stand for," McCain said.
One of the highlights of the debate at the University of South Carolina's Koger Center for the Arts came when Paul said the United States has been bombing Iraq for 10 years and doesn't understand how the Middle East operates.
"Right now, we're building an embassy in Iraq that is bigger than the Vatican. We're building 14 permanent bases. What would we say here if China was doing this in our country or in the Gulf of Mexico? We would be objecting," Paul said in explaining his opposition to going to war in Iraq.
"They are delighted that we're over there because Usama bin Laden has said, 'I'm glad you're over on our sand because we can target you so much easier.' They have already now since that time they've killed 3,400 of our men and I don't think it was necessary," he continued.
"That's really an extraordinary statement," Giuliani said, interrupting FOX News panelist Wendell Goler. "That's really an extraordinary statement, as someone who lived through the attack of Sept. 11, that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq. I don't think I have ever heard that before and I have heard some pretty absurd explanations for Sept. 11. I would ask the congressman withdraw that comment and tell us that he didn't really mean that."
Paul did not, eliciting a flurry of candidates seeking to get their 30 seconds to rebut him.
Finally, Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo managed to get in his two cents when he responded to a question saying that reducing U.S. dependence on petroleum would not only help with global warming, but is a national security issue.
"My dear friend Ron here, I dearly love and really respect, but I'll tell you: I just have to disagree with you, Ron, about the issue of whether ... Israel existed or didn't, whether or not we were in Iraq or not, they would be trying to kill us, because it is a dictate of their religion, at least a part of it. And we have to defend ourselves," he said.
