LEVIN: Couldn't vote for Paul as GOP nominee; Paul "not always accurate" about constitutionSubmitted by brooks.popwell on Mon, 01/16/2012 - 03:28
Radio talk show host Mark Levin says he couldn’t vote for Texas Rep. Ron Paul in the general election even if the Texas congressman were to somehow win the Republican nomination.
“I would have to write somebody in because Ron Paul’s foreign policy is so antithetical to traditional conservative foreign policy — whether it’s [Sen. Barry] Goldwater, whether it’s [President Ronald] Reagan,” Levin said in an extensive interview with The Daily Caller.
“You know, they like to point to [Sen. Robert] Taft in the 1950s. They have two or three conservatives they can point to. I have hundreds of conservatives I can point to … I find that [foreign policy] position to be the Kucinich-McGovern wing of the Democrat Party — it’s even extreme for them.”
Levin expanded his attack on Paul beyond foreign policy.
“I have other problems with him. I don’t think his interpretation of the Constitution is always accurate,” Levin said.
