In a wide-ranging interview on Meet the Press today, Ron Paul talked about his plan to cut $1 trillion in spending, his hope that the government will eventually get out of the housing market, and his frustration at the U.S. military intervention in the Middle East.
Paul also lamented the uselessness of some of the arguments in the GOP primary debates.
I mean, arguing over who mows Mitt Romneys lawn, Paul said. In the midst of a crisis, a sovereign debt worldwide crisis, the biggest in the history of the world, and the financial system of the world is about to collapse. Were about to have another devaluation of our credit rating. This is serious, and no control in the spending.
Were going to have to get a hand on this, Paul added. We have to quit worrying over whos mowing Mitt Romneys yard.
I watched that video today and thought Paul did a nice job defending his record. Here’s another link to it:
I just tracked down some details on the Reagan quote. He apparently made that endorsement during Paul’s 1978 congressional campaign because Paul’s rivals in the Republican primary were attacking his noninterventionist foreign policy and trying to paint him as weak on defense.
KookPaulBots starting to slip out of the crack.. :p
Suppose it’s ok, we needed entertainment ;)
