Ron Paul Likes Obama?

Ron Paul Likes Obama?


And he’s not too fond of McCain.

From CNN:

In an interview on The Situation Room, Paul told Wolf Blitzer that endorsing Sen. John McCain, the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, “would really confuse” his supporters “because they know we have a precise program and we have to defend that program.”

Having a Republican win the upcoming presidential election is “secondary” for Paul who is more interested in defending the Constitution, having the country go in what he considers the right direction, having a sound currency, and achieving balanced budgets. Paul parts ways with McCain over McCain’s support for the Iraq war, his approach to U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and his willingness to spend federal dollars to support military operations in Iraq.

Instead, Paul favors Sen. Barack Obama because of positions on foreign policy. “But that’s doesn’t mean that’s an endorsement,” Paul quickly added.

So yeah, it’s unlikely he’d ever endorse Obama. But what about Bob Barr?

Here’s the link to the interview.

    No, Ron Paul does not “like” Obama. He said all 3 of the other candidates were basically the same, pro-Patriot Act and supporters of the war, but Obama seemed to be only slightly less so — but would find plenty of other globalist ways to spend taxpayer’s money.

    And no, he will not endorse Bob Barr with such a suspicious background (former CIA member and pro-War on Drugs).

    Ron Paul will not be endorsing ANY OTHER CANDIDATES for President except himself. Got it? Good.
