LEVIN: Couldn't vote for Paul as GOP nominee; Paul "not always accurate" about constitution

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.

Hey Levin...

What was the last year the Budget was balanced? :)

....drum roll....drum roll...drum roll.......1957 !!!

p.s. From 1973 to 1996 federal spending increased roughly at a *****500%******* pace and interest on the debt was 355 billion in 1996...I have no idea what it is today :O


Mr Bain Capital is Preparing your Quarterly Bonus Check!

With dough mined out of the private sector on behalf of collectivism. You get yours.. for now.

I sense Tom Woods typing a retort somewhere out there

in the internet cloud.

Owned by Mitt Romney..He

Owned by Mitt Romney..He should have stopped that sentence at the "I don't think" part.

Isn't Levin a leftist radio show host?

Maybe I have no idea, because I don't actually know who he is. But I read the other day that he was a lefty, and I thought to myself, why to DP'ers care what this guy thinks?

You can find clips of him

You can find clips of him squealing on YouTube if you search. I would suggest not eating right before you listen.

Show your support for Ron Paul and inspire others at new grassroots site:
( Consider uploading a picture or video of your sign or event, etc .)

lol. squealing.

I just threw up a little in my mouth. I should have taken your advice.

SteveMT's picture

Levin is a selective Constitutionalist, like the rest.

If there is a left and right, then he would be the NeoCon right. He likes big gov. and war; he hates Muslims, and he hates Ron Paul.

Historically, Neoconservative are socialists

So your description of him would make sense. But does he traditionally support GOP candidates. What I read of him made me think that he was a democrat.

SteveMT's picture

If Levin voted 3rd party, then he would give Obama a 2nd term!

Isn't that what he and the rest of the talking heads are saying about us voting 3rd party if RP doesn't win the nomination? It's O.K. for him to do this, but it's not O.K. for us. Double standard Levin.

it's more telling that he's even laying out a scenario

of ron paul winning.. you can disregard the rest.. what he says doesn't matter anyway. how you read stuff without quite reading it--see outside the box. the fact somebody is doing something under certain circumstance gives much more info than whatever actually comes out of his mouth, often times.

*** BINGO ***, jtstellar


There's your wheat. The rest is chaff.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

Like I said...

in another thread Levin is a clown,until he can answer Tom Woods challenge to him he lost all credibility,as if he had any in the first place...idiot.I hate that guys voice it is so F N annoying.

One thing I take from this

The neocons who formally dismissed Ron Paul months ago are now hedging their bets.


I think your vote would bring bad neo-con mojo to the election process. You should stay home and hit that crack pipe some more, leave America and it's liberties to educated voters!

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

Title FIXED: "Mark Levin

Title FIXED: "Mark Levin plans to support Obama in 2012"

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Call in

Have him explain why he likes to support Democrats. Traitor to the Republican party .


and Romney knows it any better. hmmm...

"let's ask the constitutionalist (Ron Paul)" - Romney

Don't lie Levin...

We all know the REAL reason is he won't cut a blank check to ISSSREEEEAALLLLL.

Levin should be questioned as to who's Constitution his loyalty REALLY lies.

Mark Levin is a big fat Dope!

Chicken Hawk Man!

First of all, how can Levin

First of all, how can Levin not vote for the guy that actually wants to cut something from the budget? Second of all, Levin said that if Dr. Paul ran third party that he would campaign against Rand in Kentucky. So it makes no sense that he says that he would vote for a third party candidate over Dr. Paul. Finally, I would like for that neocon Levin to please explain how it is conservative to have non-intervention in domestic matters, but it is somehow not conservative to have non-intervention when it comes to foreign matters.

See? It Dont Add Up

That's the whole thing. It's the same with almost all of them. I guess there's 2 kinds of people in this world - and they're the other kind.
