RP2012 Official Campaign Release:
Celebrated Harvard Alum Dr. Iris Mack Endorses Ron Paul for the Presidency - Internationally-recognized Harvard mathematician and derivatives whistleblower considers Dr. Paul’s many credentials as ample fodder for endorsement
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul announced today the endorsement of Iris Mack, the notable and accomplished applied mathematician, derivatives whistleblower and professor. The endorsement recently was made official on The Economic Policy Journal.
In endorsing the 12-term Congressman from Texas, Dr. Mack stated: “Ron Paul has some serious credentials: medical doctor, Air Force veteran, and author of several books detailing and predicting various economic issues and crises. As public official for many years, Dr. Paul has an excellent voting record as a fighter for liberty, and on a personal note he is a well-regarded family man.”
Continuing her praise, Dr. Mack cited Dr. Paul’s stance against President Obama’s civil liberties power-grab, saying, “Also, Ron Paul seems to be one of the few elected public servants who has come out against the NDAA Indefinite Detention Law – which Obama signed on New Year’s Eve deliberately when few were watching.”
“Taken together, there isn’t one thing I dislike about Ron Paul,” concluded Dr. Mack.
The campaign reacted to news of Dr. Mack’s endorsement positively.
“Iris Mack knows qualifications when she sees them so people following her work will take her word that Ron Paul is ideally suited to understand our nation’s challenges and provide winning solutions such as those found in his ‘Plan to Restore America.’ We appreciate Dr. Mack’s endorsement and anticipate that it will contribute to the strong showing we plan to in all stages of our 50-state campaign for the Republican nomination,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

Originally broke on Austrian economist Bob Wenzel's blog:
Um, is it me, or is she like too gorgeous to be a math whiz? Just sayin'
Thom Hartmann interviewing her back in April 2009
Oh, and to Jamie Kirchick, Julian Sanchez, Matt Welch, David Weigel, and Tucker Carson et al who orchestrated the TNR newsletter smear: she's an entrepreneur, a trader who actually made money in the market (unlike other purely academic delusional imbeciles like Paul Krugman who deem himself so genius that we should listen to his academic bubble of 'wisdom'), a true 'brainiac' who graduated from Vassar College, MS in Mathematics from UCLA, Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Harvard, and Executive MBA from London Business School, who just happens to be a beautiful BLACK woman, who just publicly, openly endorsed Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, a man who predicted every current econ malaise and has been consistently warning for over 40yrs. Dr. Paul is a self-taught economist who knows more than the arrogant Fed.Reserve grant-whore professional 'economists' who got NOTHING right. Yet they and the servile MSM would have the rest of the world to believe that we should still listen to their imbecilic 'advice?'
Don't think so.
So my dear TNR, Weekly STD, Kirchick, NeoCon Trotskyites incorporated, KOCHtopus Reason/CATO, eat your friggin heart out!
PS. The following is yesterday's MSN, yes MSN article headlined, "Will Ron Paul-onomics beat Obama?"

Will Ron Paul-onomics beat Obama?
The libertarian Republican's call to 'end the Fed' and return to the gold standard is catching on in the GOP -- and it could shape the political year.
The race for the White House is in full swing with the top two candidates for the Republican nomination -- Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney -- exchanging body blows like bloodied boxers.
But it's dark horse Ron Paul who seems to be tapping into the deep-seated cynicism with which many Americans view the economy, the prolonged downturn and how we can stop the boom-and-bust cycle...
