Ron Paul Likes Obama?
And he’s not too fond of McCain.
In an interview on The Situation Room, Paul told Wolf Blitzer that endorsing Sen. John McCain, the Republican Partyâ€™s presumptive nominee, â€œwould really confuseâ€ his supporters â€œbecause they know we have a precise program and we have to defend that program.â€
Having a Republican win the upcoming presidential election is â€œsecondaryâ€ 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 McCainâ€™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. â€œBut thatâ€™s doesnâ€™t mean thatâ€™s an endorsement,â€ Paul quickly added.
So yeah, it’s unlikely he’d ever endorse Obama. But what about Bob Barr?
