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.”

Like it or not politicians are judged by their supporters all the time...mostly with good reason!!!Just saying

After Paul loses this time they can go back to voting for Ralph Nader.

Again, Cut and Run >TALKED. Talk, that is all he has ever done. In all the time he has been in Washington (About 100 years) can anybody name ONE thing he has ever done, except acquire tons of earmarks, the ones he SAYS he is against?

Apparently someone can:

“Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country.”

—Ronald Reagan

When you say Ron needs to meet a psychiatrist, are you suggesting he has a serious mental illness?

Do you even have to ask? There is no question about it.

Actually “mardi59”—the person I was asking—said it was a sarcastic remark.

I do not know if that is an accurate quote or not, but was that before or after the surrender monkey condemned Reagan for deficits?

Again, Cut and Run never accomplished anything. Even if the quote is accurate, it does not show anything the surrender monkey ever accomplished.

I believe Reagan praised Paul’s accomplishments fighting for a stronger national defense in 1978, and Paul criticized Reagan for deficits in 1987.

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.
