Does anyone know the full context of this? (HT2 EPJ) Like, is Beck really telling people, “I want Ron Paul to be the Republican nominee,” or did he say something three seconds later like, “It’s just too bad he comes off as a doddering old man and could never beat Obama”?
Anyway, my point in relaying this is to say that I have noticed first-hand that there’s not as much resistance in “right wing” circles to talk about Ron Paul. Back in the 2008 campaign, I could still tell that most self-described conservatives thought Ron Paul was persona non grata. But I think more and more of them are realizing that he has been consistent, and that–gosh–maybe we just don’t have the money to be policing the world right now.
