Ron Paul defends Mitt Romney
Not surprisingly, he defends the one area of Romney's record and positions that most Americans are the most turned off by. For some odd reason, I'm not at all surprised that he would choose to defend Romney's oft criticized business record. It's actually quite consistent with Paul's politics, his take on Ayn Rand, and his libertarian ideals. The irony is, how many Catholics who have trashed the Ayn Rand approach to our economic system, or have spent the last couple years attacking Capitalism and the Free Market for its rather Darwinian tendencies, see Paul as a knight in shinning armor. Oh, they admit he's not perfect, but my how they trash anyone other than Paul for holding in moderation many of the views that Paul holds in the extreme. Politics does create strange bedfellows, that's for sure.
