Skip to comments.Ron Paul Won't Endorse Romney, Sees "Essentially No Difference"
Posted on 10/12/2012 3:00:10 PM PDT by kingattax
Ron Paul, the maverick Texas congressman who has twice run for the Republican presidential nomination, won't endorse the nominee of his party. Though Paul said last week it was "very unlikely" he would endorse former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, he made it definitive in an interview October 12 on the CNBC program Futures Now.
"No," he said, plainly and unequivocally, when asked about an endorsement. Neither the GOP challenger nor President Obama will change the course of fiscal and monetary policy that is leading to what has been called the "fiscal cliff," Paul said, because both are captive of special interests.
And neither will act to stop the Federal Reserve from papering over the growing chasm of debt by inflating the money supply in a policy called "quantitative easing."

I am done with him...I see no difference in him and Biden
His son is going to OH and NH for Romney.
I have to say, people that say the two are the same are simply morons with no brain cells left.
Did I just describe a Paul bot?
What an arrogant old fool. That’s it - stick us with Obama again you creep.
What is his FReepname, does anybody know?
His endorsement wouldn’t matter one way or the other, imo. I know that Paul has follows across the nation but I’m not sure that they would be enough to swing the election in any state. JMO.
How can there possibly be anyone left on this board who supports Ron Paul?
It’s time for Rand to find a good old folks home for his dad. He really has gone off the deep end.
He’s right there is no difference both are liberals...
That’s what happens when people stop thinking with their heads and start letting their wish list become their reality.
We can only hope the little roach gets stepped on in the near future. Rand needs to learn from this. He is not bigger than his supporters and he is relevant only so long as his message is coherent.
...and I see no difference between his supporters and Biden either.
What selfish self absorbed folks -Ron Paul and his Paul bots.
“No essential difference.” Is he referring to the fact that both are against legalizing drugs—although for different reasons?
The statement about no difference on the Fed is ridiculous. Romney is too establishment for me, but he’s not anything like Obama - and he’s already said he is done with Bernanke and EZ money.
Paul just lies out his you know what to make his counter intuitive selfish place in history somehow justified.
And if Paul was President, he wouldn’t change it either, unless he had 60% of the Senate, a majority in the House, and 5 SCOTUS judges.
We’ve been 100 years getting into this mess, we will either turn a corner and head back or derail. I’m betting on the derail scenario now.
I don’t want a Marxist in charge when that happens, and as week as the Bush’s were on conservatism, their SCOTUS picks are a hell of a lot better than Clinton’s and Bummer’s.
........here’s your sign...............
Well said. Paul is a narcissist who would put his own interests above the good of the nation. His followers (as they are often called) are just that- lemmings that will follow him over a cliff.
Who is doing your scoring? The BLS?
