Tom Woods: Wead on Benton, Romney, etcSubmitted by fecwatcher on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 12:41
Doug Wead on Benton, Romney, and the Liberty Movement
Doug Wead is without a doubt the smoothest and most articulate of the campaign people. A few comments of my own to introduce this video. (1) See what you think about his answer to the question regarding Jesse Benton’s description of the decent Paul Festival people, whom Ron Paul himself likes and admires, as a “fringe element.” (2) I am not sure “genius” is the word I would use to describe Jesse Benton. (3) Who are the unnamed members of the liberty movement who are in it just for the (alleged) money and to sell books? (4) “We also need some people where this isn’t about just making money,” he says — this reference, by contrast, is to Jesse the Ascetic and the campaign people. (5) He suggests the decision not to go after Romney — which is now evidently being admitted to, after various denials — was taken relatively late in the game, to avoid a massive anti-Ron ad campaign by Romney. On the other hand, a senior official tells us otherwise.
