Ron Paul doesn't seem too impressed with the big-talkin', big-walkin' governor of Texas.
Speaking to volunteers for his presidential campaign in New Hampshire Wednesday, Paul brought up the New New Thing in the GOP race, Rick Perry and his highly criticized remarks about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. (Watch video here.)

I’ll bet he remembers the name of the president of Iran...
Paul has no more business being president than Michelle Bachmann. If they think they are presidential, they should run for governor and prove it. Of course, in both cases, it’s more about publicity than actually becoming president.
Possibly, but ... Could YOU forget your own state governor’s name?
Ron Paul = Ross Perot
Was it intentional or was it Old Geezer Memory....
With that being said, even though some accuse Ronald Magnus as suffering from alzheimers in the last years of his presidency, I would rather have the Ronald Magnus from 1988-1992 over the current Bozo the clown.
He also is going ‘moderate’ on the fed issue per that vid.
Re: Could YOU forget your own state governors name?
I will never forget whats his name???
I do not particularly care for either of these gentlemen, but I do have to say the breaking Huawei Scandal (PRC intelligence operation/telecome and cyber terror unit invited to set up shop in Texas), is really beginning to raise (literally) “red flags” and bother me about Mr. Perry.
In life, men sometimes get a second chance, good men even fewer second chances. Republics may get no second chance at all.
Without question, you can vote your choice lesser of evils— the SOS, technically qualified, NBC candidate—then again, some say voting doesn’t mean a thing.
AGAIN! RON PAUL IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE AVAILABLE TO RETURN AMERICA TO ITS ROOTS! OF COURSE, MANY PEOPLE REALLY DON’T WANT THAT!
RON PAUL: The ONLY Choice!
His supporting base, drug addicts. College students stoned so bad they’ll sleep through the election.
gunnyg...Free Republic was once home for all the Libertarian kooks...most of this small band of circle-jerk finger pointing legalize drugs moon bats have moved to their own web sites, never to be heard from again.
You will NOT convert ANYONE on this web site...Paul is a kook...and all the so-called “constitutional expertise” (actally misreading of the document) that the Ron-bots put forth will sway no one...better Libertarian honking geese have already come and gone from Free Republic.
Ron Paul is the king of the nut cases
Ron Paul is old. It happens.
Forgetfulness is to be expected at his advanced age.
President Bachmann is exactly what the country needs.
Ron “the nutjob” Paul is only being mention by the MSM in order to smear republicans.
Kook Paul has no credibility or viability as a candidate. He is the crazy man down the street running for president.
With so many candidates stepping up and looking good I can’t imagine many will vote for Paul. He’d been better off with his son running. .......his age definately goes against him now as well as his weirdness.
And already the Paulbots in NH are coming out of the woodwork. Good, says I—easier to get into a nice group and drop in a little napalm—instant improvement in the gene pool.
Not hardly. Ron Paul would never get beyond the asterisk level in a national election. If he were honest about who and what he is, he would have STAYED a Libertarian.
lets see, a drug advocate
a slease who puts pork in must pass bills and then votes against the bill to simulate virtue.
Kook Paul is garbage and is nothing but useful idiot bait.
Paul falls to one percent of the vote once the actual voting begins.
Perot voter twice, right?
Dr. Paul turns 76 this Saturday. Happy birthday, doctor!
Just think, he would turn 80 during his first term in office.
It’s ludicrous to think America would install a person that old as president.
While I don’t know by personal experience, there is much evidence that sniffing glue will severely damage the brain. You may want to THINK about this, if there’s still enough synapses left.
Wrong gunny, wrong! (I always wanted to say that to my GSgt, and no, I wouldn't say that to your face).
There are many choices for prez, Ron Paul is just the only good one.
Like always when you post something favorable about the good doctor, you take a lotta flack from the Paul-haters... childish insults, threats, etc.
Were these keyboard warriors to meet up face to face with a couple of old Marines like you & me, I bet that instead of the tough talk from them we'd get to see them wet their little panties instead.
Appreciated—i don’t give a big rat’s @$$ what the duty drunks think—i post/respond for my own reasons and not the herd—there are always those with eyes and ears perusing these sites and that be my intended target—Marines boards are just as bad...wtf, we’re now 50 years outta the doper ‘60s and there are only the generations/descendants of hippies around now—besides a few (damn few) of us dinosaurs.
Semper Fidelis, Marine!
aka: Dick Gaines
...Good on yer gunny, I got your back...
...And Semper Fi to you and gunnyg...
Ron Paul shows, once again, that he’s just not the crispest cracker in the pack.
Welcome aboard FRiend!
BS. Ron Paul is a nut case and will make America a worse place than it already is under Obummer. Paul believes that America is responsible for 9/11 and would retreat from any and all attacks by our enemies. He has said as much in his speeches. He believes that our enemies hate us because we are bullies and evil. Sounds a lot like Obummer. Paul needs to go back to the libertarian party and run as one. That is what he really is. And as for his constitutional stances, I call BS on them too. He’s running on that (like all libertarians do) when he really doesn’t stand for them anymore than our current office holder does. A vote for Paul is a vote for Obama.
“Paul needs to go back to the libertarian party and run as one. “
Ah so...at last a response that indicates a lick of sense...
I agree, and I don’t care whether Dr Paul does so before or after the demise of the “R” potty—the poor will always be with us—the “D” potty—regardless what they call themselves, things should then work out fine...thank you for your wisdom...
Ahhhh, wisdom posting from a guy who’s supporting the new Ross Perot.
Ron Paul = Ross Perot = Ralph Nader. Take your pick, they are all nut cases and you’re blather won’t change the minds of any one here.
Find a good libertarian (read that ultra liberal) website and post there. You’ll find like minded (yeah, like they have minds) people who will take you into the loony fold.
Have you ever checked out the libertarian home page? Do you know what they stand for or hope to achieve?
For supposedly being a Marine (anyone on line can say they are anything and often do) you sure don’t show much sense putting your hopes on a man who is not as American as you try to make him sound.
You and your paulbots are wasting your time here. We know a kook when we see one.
“Ah so...at last a response that indicates a lick of sense...”
Its easy to forget who your governor is when he is essentially a carbon copy of the previous one.
No change, no reason to remember.
