Paul Touts Spending Cuts ... (Meet the Press, legal video at link)
National Review ^ | October 23, 2011 | Katrina Trinko

Posted on 10/23/2011 12:12:45 PM PDT by Kurt Evans

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 Romney’s 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. We’re about to have another devaluation of … our credit rating. This is serious, and no control in the spending.”

“We’re going to have to get a hand on this,” Paul added. “We have to quit worrying over who’s mowing Mitt Romney’s 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.
