WSJ: Clinton Praises Ron Paul

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton interrupted her testimony on Capitol Hill today to pay a compliment to Rep. Ron Paul, the Texas congressman who made an unsuccessful bid for the GOP presidential nomination last year.

As she finished answering a question from Paul, she added: “And, at the risk of going over our time, I just want to say, having campaigned during the last presidential election, you had the most enthusiastic supporters of anybody I ever saw.”

Paul laughed, and replied, “I love to hear that.”

Giving him praise because...

she knows that if Dr. Paul was Pres, she would not be SOS, because of Article I, Section 6, Paragraph 2. The Constitution is her enemy, and she knows it.

Probably because Clinton.....

.....Is a shill who has no choice but to respect Ron Paul's movement, since Dr. Paul's movement is the real thing and we all support "freedom"

Something that is largely foreign to these corporate/NWO/Zionist MIC shills, hacks, and sychophants. Even Glenn Beck knows it and he's the same.

On the same WSJ page, the blog

thread on Paul's North Korea video is the 2nd most popular.

Clinton got her start in

Clinton got her start in politics by being a fanatical Goldwater supporter, though that changed fairly quickly. I bet seeing young people out supporting the good doctor would have been like Charles Kane seeing his old sled "Rosebud".

We all like Ron Paul because he gives great speeches that he doesn't write and he has a great smile.... Right?

She never appears to be

She never appears to be telling the truth, and always looks fake...but I thought she was sincere in her compliment...interesting...

It's so interesting to hear

It's so interesting to hear Hillary make that statement. I was at "Operation Hillary" (our meet-up term) in Seattle when she was making her campaign rounds. We had a huge signs and lots of loud chants as her limo drove into the underground garage. Funny, I was wondering just yesterday after RP made his comment if we even made an impact. I guess we did. : )

Nice to see

it in print for more people to read! That was a wonderful moment.

Ron Paul Campaign.

With praise coming from hard core Democrats, it tells me if Ron's own party had supported him, by nominating him, and backing him, and we elected him, our whole country could be in much better current shape, financially, militarily, and domestically, with a Ron Paul President!!!

beesting

Can anyone tell me

who was it that said "you're going to encourage him?"

It was probably the Speaker.

It was probably the Speaker. It was said in good humor, and even Ron slapped his table surface laughing about it.

I thought he said,

"THEY'LL love to hear that."

He did! Guess it's too much to ask the WSJ

The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.

Right

and thanks for the laugh!

Ron Paul "had the most enthusiastic supporters..."

There's a reason for that, Hillary.

It has something to do with freedom, liberty, limited government...

huzzah !!!
