Ron Paul: Why Isn't He Excited About the Nomination of Paul Ryan?

With many Republicans excited about Paul Ryan's vice presidential nomination, there is one Republican who is less than enthusiastic: Dr. Ron Paul.

Ron Paul's budget plan would balance the budget in three years and lower taxes.

In an interview August 11, 2012 on Fox News, Dr. Ron Paul called Ryan's a timid plan that adds to warmongering and money the U.S. spends overseas and cuts social programs, like Medicare. He doesn't like that the Ryan plan might balance the budget in 30 years. Dr. Paul wants to cut overseas spending by first stopping "militarism" (policing the world), which he differentiates from national defense spending.

If Ryan was remotely

similar to Ron Paul, the media would ignore him and Romney certainly would not have chosen him for VP.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Ron Paul knew that Ryan was a neocon years ago.

Festering trash starts to stink after awhile, and Ron Paul's sense of smell is as keen as ever.

why would Ron Paul be excited about . . .


it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--


NBC affiliate Local 2 houston anchor said:
" New this morning. Congressman Ron Paul Ryan was gathering crowds while campaigning in his newest position as VP candidate to Mittens Romney".
I can see the writing on the wall.
Didnt take them long and this is in Pauls own district.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Mitt has

a nervous disposition, just like Henry Paulson.

Thieves are obvious to me

My opinion of the Ryan pick...

I truly believe that this is Mitt's desperate last attempt to excite the GOP. It is the last play he had. The GOP is still so fractured and are having a hard time backing Mitt. I am glad he did this soooo far in advance of the RNC, as it will give the dems plenty of time to tear Paul Ryan apart. By the time we get to the RNC, the RP delegates should have an easy case to make to the other delegates to nominate RP on the convention floor.

If Willard wanted to excite the GOP, he'd drop out

or refuse the nomination in Tampa.

That's entertainment!


The more mitt lusts after power the more it slips from his slippery hands.
It is amazing to me how they lust after the power to govern over us.

I agree Mitts campaign is in full meltdown and they dont trust each other because they know each other is just as corrupt as the next and would sell the blanket off their cold mothers' back, if they thought it would help them.
I can only imagine what is going on behind the iron curtain!
I wish I were a fly on the romney headquarters wall listening.
