    And that's different from Matthews suddenly deciding his "job" is to help ensure a successful Presidency?

    His anti government stance is nothing new nor innovative on his part.

    Nope, unlike the vast majority of politicians, Ron Paul has stood firm in his beliefs and political platform. I think what the contention was is that during the Presidential primaries, Ron Paul was smeared as much as possible by many "conservative" forces, including Fox News. The first debates where Hannity and Colmes were interviewing candidates afterwards...disgusting. Immature, irresponsible "reporting" by the lot of them. Now that Obama is in office, and Ron Paul is still running his mouth about small government; all of a sudden so many places whom were smearing him in the primaries all of a sudden start echoing what we was saying on several issues. I think that was the only point being made.

    But the fact that they switched gears in regards to the sentiment is quite telling, wouldn't you say?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    The only thing that made Dr. Paul look bad during that bid, was the support from the 9/11 truthers that tagged on to his campaign due to his seeming blaming of America for the attacks.


    except for that he has always been very good on the constitution.

    The "blaming America for the attacks" thing was irresponsible and sickening spin on the part of the media. A lot of which was perpetrated by Fox News. That's one of the things I was referencing when I brought up Hannity after the first primary debate.

    And he didn't support the truthers. His contention was that the incident needs to be looked at, investigated, and reported truthfully and in total to the People.

    Frankly, I just have an extremely hard time seeing Ron Paul as dignified and a statesman. He may be very intelligent and have some good points, but I also think he is a bit extreme and some of his policies echo isolationism, to me.

    I'm sure you can argue against that sentiment but it would be a moot point for both of us. I'm not going to accept Paul as a viable candidate because I find his effete demeanor offensive to my sensibilities and perceptions about what a leader should be.
