Ron Paul, GOP Team Player
Buzzfeed headline from last Wednesday: Ron Paul Suggests He’ll Vote For Gary Johnson
This probably feels like primary season flotsam and jetsam to some folks. Maybe it is. Didn’t the Republican Party nominate Mitt Romney as its nominee at the end of August? Why then would a long-time GOP congressman (and multiple-time presidential also-ran) talk like this in October?
“There are other people who are technically capable of winning because they’re on a lot of ballots,” Paul said, to which his interviewer said “Like Gary Johnson, for example.”
Paul didn’t confirm or deny that that was his candidate. But he ruled out voting for either Barack Obama or the Republican nominee.
Even Newt Gingrich, who dreamed aloud of funding a moon base and recreating the “Lincoln-Douglas” debates in some reality tv version of the General Election, has become a rabid surrogate for Mitt Romney.
Ron Paul’s followers– and there’s no other word for them– claim that he reveres the Constitution. They said that he was the most conservative candidate in the race.
Well, if these things were true then Paul would be an even bigger surrogate for Romney than John Sununu. But he’s not. No, he goes on Fox Business and plays “keep away”. What a team player.
