The Republican Jewish Coalition is holding a presidential forum on Wednesday in Washington D.C. and will include Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum. Why isn't Ron Paul on the list? Because he wasn't invited. Reason has the explanation:
Paul was not invited to attend the RJC's candidates forum because the organization - as it has stated numerous times in the past - "rejects his misguided and extreme views," said [RJC Executive Director Matt] Brooks.
"He's just so far outside of the mainstream of the Republican party and this organization," Brooks said. Inviting Paul to attend would be "like inviting Barack Obama to speak."
With comments like these, the move by the Republican Jewish Coalition makes sense:
