paragraph tags aren't saved in database

When retrieving the post content using the metaweblog api, the post content is returned without any <p> tags in most cases. In some cases, it seems to work depending on the post content, but not for all posts.
---Example One: some <p> tags shown---

In a desperate attempt to gain search market share, software behemoth Microsoft is making another <a href="http://news.wired.com/dynamic/stories/M/MICROSOFT_YAHOO?SITE=WIRE&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT" title="Microsoft To Buy Yahoo">bid to buy search giant Yahoo</a>. My first reaction is: Is Yahoo really that stupid? At first glance, this deal doesn't make any sense.
Yahoo has such a powerful brand that thrives on community and <strong>millions of registered users</strong>. Microsoft is a distant third behind Google and Yahoo for search market share, so their interest and objective is obvious.
When I check the HTML in the actual Wordpress editor the <p> tags are not listed. I'm guessing this is where the problem lies. If I save the post with <p> tags included, then the same thing happens. The <p> tags are removed. This is happening in the latest version of Wordpress 2.3.2.
