Following his strong finish in the Iowa caucuses, GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul hit back today at rival Newt Gingrich following comments by the former Speaker of The House that Paul was "stunningly dangerous" to the U.S.
After he came in fourth place behind the Congressman, Gingrich slammed Paul during his speech in Iowa...
Paul, who served as a surgeon in the U.S. Air Force after attending medical school, blasted back during a CNN appearance this morning, labeling Gingrich a "chickenhawk" who avoided the Vietnam War.
"I don't want to fight a war that's unconstitutional and I'm the dangerous person?" Paul urged.
"You know, when Newt Gingrich was called to service in the 1960s during the Vietnam era, guess what he thought about danger? He chickened out on that, he got deferments and didn't even go," Paul added.
-“Gingrich has no business talking about danger because he is putting other people in danger”
