Is he making a temporary positive remark about Ron Paul knowing the monetary system? As I recall, in the past he was not very supportive of Ron Paul. Could a Neocon be woken up from their trance?
Romney nor the other previous candidates could articulate on monetary issues. They all are part of the big government problem that got us in the mess that we are currently in.
well i guess i did good,that was me asking steve forbes or reminding him that about a month ago on the washington journal when i questioned him on ron paul and he said he likes him as far as monitary policy(well that was what the conversation was about)not agreeing with all of his other policies,so this time i also added that he told me he liked dr paul's views on monitary issues, but i also told with crowd's like ucla and 8800 people and kid's hanging out of tree's for a better view, i said they call that the tree of liberty.
well god bless dr paul

on monetary policy. And foreign policy. And civil liberties. And abortion. And states' rights. And public education. And gay marriage. And Austrian economics. And health care. And just about everything else in the relationship between a free people and their government.
Romney should listen to Ron Paul as one citizen among many, to his next President.
Let's see that it gets done.
is one of my bookmarks. Steve Forbes and company, actually are much closer to Ron Paul and company, than most people realize.
I heard nothing in this video, which would make me think otherwise.
Forbes.com is always running stories and reports which and closer to the truth than the so called main stream media.

Steve Forbes was the loudest voice to eliminate that rule for banks four years ago. I don't trust him for a second.
but he seems to know something the other 99 dont know, is he hinting at that it is all going down the toilet sooner than later.

steve forbes is a scumbag and a traitor. He would just as soon not hear or see Dr Paul.
Frankly I would just as soon not see or hear steve forbes that lowlife.
the big question is when will romney support Ron Paul?

They cant buy him off so they now try to soften the damage.
The FED will be gone soon. One way or the other..
to track and trace people's consumption, and of what items, for further societal control.
He did well to plug Ron Paul but this guy is hardcore enemy.
Enemy? No. Misguided? Yes. He's been pushing the flat tax ever since he ran for prez.
Steve is in the same club that Romney is in and that's why he would never actually endorse Ron Paul. Romney knows the deal about not rocking the Fed boat...just like Obama, Bush, Clinton, Sr. Bush, and Reagan would not rock the boat. Ron Paul's courage and intelligence on monetary policy will become a matter of historical record someday. The Fed simply will not be able to last with the pressure building on them. It will, however, take years to re-cast the system, if it doesn't collapse first.

wuss, and should just endorse Paul.

I like the post and thank you for it...I just want to say that this Forbes guy is totally warped to suggest Ron Paul should step down from running for President in order to Chair an agency he believes is unconstitutional and needs to be ended.
Do you really think he doesn't understand what he is saying suggesting RP head up the fed? It is irony--what a way to deconstruct the fed!
Call me biased but how can you argue with Ron Paul on ANYTHING?
These rats who piece-meal the issues and say "well, Ron Paul's right about that but wrong on foreign policy" or "wrong about ending the income tax" etc, are hypocrites of the HIGHEST ORDER.
Ron Paul is consistent on EVERY ISSUE put before him and to deny that means you either don't understand the issue or you are an immoral thinker who agrees with the wrong-doing.
"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
Steve Forbes is right!
Romney should listen to Ron Paul on monetary policy.
He should also listen to--and follow--Ron Paul on foreign policy, on defence policy, on drug policy, on civil liberties policy, on "education" policy, on farm policy, on race relations, on the environment, and EVERY OTHER policy that the Federal government, and its uncontrolled Presidency has intruded upon, and made an unholy mess of, since 1789!
Mitt Romney (and Steve Forbes) should listen to, and understand, Ron Paul about everything, not only the criminal and horribly destructive banking cartel known as the FED.
PEACE AND FREEDOM!

If you agree with pauls monetary policy and trust the free market shouldn't that cover all the other policies as well? How do you have free markets with policy towards anything? I don't feel like forbes really understands what he is saying.
Attempting to degrade Ron Paul with his Rhetoric. Ron Paul will do all he can to End the FED and would NEVER be the Chairman of that Criminal organization.
Steve Forbes is just another Criminal Corporate ASS that relies on the Unconstitutional Criminal FED.
Than just money. Sure, a lot of the problems we have stem from the economy and the dollar, but we also have corruption out the yin-yang in Washington and losing our rights every day it seems. We need an awakening, and Ron Paul is the ONLY man to do it!
The only problem is if Mitt listens to Paul on anything its a "downward spiral" from there... Mitt would have to start rethinking just about everything...

This is why Steve can give only "half-truths", he and publications are not to be trusted. The Forbes folks are at best CoIntelpro / 5th columnists. Be careful with this guy and do your own research. With the love of liberty folks :^)
Given the overwhelmingly amazing response to the post "How many of you in here pledge to Never back Romney?", i ask this question:
If Mitt Romney were to say that if elected he would make Ron Paul chairman of the Federal Reserve, would you vote for him?
I would consider voting for Romney if I believed him... which I wouldn't. No chance in hell I'd vote for Romney, regardless of what he "promises."
This November I'll either vote for Dr. Paul on the Republican ticket, vote for Dr. Paul on a third party ticket or write in Dr. Paul's name.
I get you, it is a hard thing to believe. But i guess my question more meant that if it was like nailed in stone that Ron Paul would be the Fed chairman, and to that you answered you would consider it.
I personally think if that were the case, it would be a very hard thing to say no. And so on an intellectual level, it is food for thought. But realistically, it's just never going to happen, so anyway...moving on...
seemed to be numb between the ears, IMO.
He never seems to quite get it.
He's completely mired in the status-quo.
Amazing Forbes gets the monetary dangers, but somehow believes 900 bases in 150 countries is sustainable and none of it can be cut...
Free includes debt-free!
You can see all this on C-spans video library, New York caller asks about RP at about 28:30 into the interview, cut off by Peter at about 29:30. Total response irked me at the time.
