    Ron Paul: 'I Don't Fully Endorse' Mitt Romney

    Mitt just cant seem to find unconditional love from anywhere.


    In an interview with the New York Times, Ron Paul detailed his conversations with Republican National Convention organizers, who he says offered him a speaking slot under conditions he couldn't meet.


    According to Paul, convention planners offered the Texas congressman the chance to speak under two conditions: that he gave a speech pre-approved by Romney's campaign, and that he give a "full-fledged" endorsement of Mitt Romney.
    “It wouldn’t be my speech," Paul said. "That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president."

    While I rarely agree with the man outside of foreign policy, I gotta hang with Maggie on this one. Good for him.

    As far as I can tell, Romney represents no change in money printing, military buildups and world policeman-ship. So, how could Mr. Paul whole-heartedly support him (or anyone else for that matter).

    I somewhat agree with Mr. Paul on many things although not to the extremes he espouses. There is no relationship between Mr. Paul and Republican party philosophies. Maybe they could agree on tax cuts but Mr. Paul would cut everyone's taxes while Mr. Romney will favor the upper classes more so than the peasantry.

    I can assure you that no matter which one we elect, the spending spree will continue, only some beneficiaries will change.

    They *had* to offer him a speaking role because he does have a plurality of at least 5 states. However, I expected him to speak but at a crazy hour like 12pm - during lunch.

    I don't see why he would. They are ideologically different. Romney assumes the role of a Neoconservative from time to time (and at others a moderate and sometimes whatever the electorate would like) and Paul is more of a Libertarian

    I'm not sure why Paul was offered a chance to speak either. He certainly isn't a conservative or a Republican. Unless they thought he would get on board to disparage Obama.

    I guess Paul is still living in his own reality. One that will certainly not further his political career.
