Scarborough - Why I voted for Ron Paul

I operate on instinct. So I should not have been surprised by my own gut reaction to the absentee ballot that lay before me on the kitchen table.

I scanned the list for Republican primary candidates and let instinct take over.

Mitt Romney? Not on your life. A big government Republican who will say anything to get elected.

Rick Santorum? No way. A pro-life statist who helped George W. Bush double the national debt.

Newt Gingrich? Ideologically unmoored. A champion of liberty one day, a central planner the next.

Ron Paul? Yep. I quickly checked his name and moved on to a far more complex task: fixing my daughter a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

It was a vote for Romney!

A little late Joe. Thanks

A little late Joe. Thanks for nothing. So many chances to give Ron some face time and I heard about every candidate but Paul almost daily on Morning Joe until I gave up on it. I only check it now on occasion because of my crush on Mika.


It's never too late. And even if it is, here's hoping for more late people.

Thank Joe @JoeNBC

Hhe hee I recall one of Joe's guests promoting Ron Paul, and Mika saying "OOPS!" The MSM watches every move; Ron Paul promoting is off limits. And, I've seen Joe discuss Paul on occasion... I think he had him on once or more?

Thanks to Joe for announcing that he did vote for Ron Paul.
