"Ron Paul is not having the best holiday season. First the media discovered racist, anti-Semitic newsletters that went out under Paul’s name in the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Then the New York Times did a story about the support Paul draws from white supremacists and anti-Semites.


Now there’s former Paul staffer Eric Dondero purporting to describe the ins and outs of Paul’s positions on everything from Israel (it shouldn’t exist) to Hitler (we shouldn’t have fought him) to 9/11 (U.S. authorities may have known about the attacks) to Afghanistan (we shouldn’t have invaded). He calls Paul’s foreign policy “sheer lunacy.”

I've said this many times, very little of what Ron Paul calls policy is practical and some things appear down right crazy. I have no idea how any sane individual could support this guy.

But I would get all my information from an ex-aide of Paul's too...

I haven't heard Paul disputing any of this. Maybe we'll get to see him run away from another interview.

He isn't. Ron Paul's the crazy old grumpy guy at the mall who long's for years gone by.

I'd probably be a Ron Paul supporter if it weren't for his views on foreign policy.

They just scare the crap out of me.

I agree with all the statements above. (I don't think the U.S. authorities knew of the 9/11 attacks, but of course they "may have.")

Ideally I'd like that, but he wouldn't be dictator, so that's about what we'd get anyway.
