Comment: He Wasn't Disrespecting Ron Paul

He Wasn't Disrespecting Ron Paul

He couldn't select him as running mate due to sore loser laws.

And he wouldn't commit to selecting him to the cabinet because, as he said elsewhere (I can't recall where), the rule with him--as it was in New Mexico--is no pre-selections: One must undergo a competitive application and interview process for any job, including cabinet positions.

The rest we've discussed elsewhere, and there are legitimate concerns for sure, but in my eyes the first clip above is no display of disrespect.
