This is pretty much what Dr. Ron Paul has been trying to tell us for two or three decades. Ron Paul 2012 or Bust! Literally!

I hate to break it to you guys, but Dr. Paul is nearly 80. I heard last week that him and his wife are selling their house and moving into an assisted living faciility near their house. He's slowed down a lot. He rarely gets out on his bicycle anymore. The last campaign was hard on him and he took off a lot more than he used to. He's retired from his House seat. You need to let the man go.

Becca,

I agree with you. Dr. Ron Paul has to be put out to pasture. These Paulistas have to let it go, and move on.

I'm hoping his son will go on to bigger and better things. He seems much more realistic, although I wouldn't mind if he finds a better hair-stylist ;)

Becca-- You need to let the man go.

But not his ideas...

Milt, I've always liked Rand better than Ron.

I sensed he was "losing it" the last few times I heard him speak. I even detected a bit of dementia I think creeping in. To all you Paul supporters?.. I made the mistake 20 years ago of voting for Perot.. me and millions of others and gave the election to Clinton.. He of the blue dress and the vagina humidor. (Perot got 19% of the vote)

I wouldn't be surprised to see Ron Paul as Secretary of the Treasury. After all, look at the clues. Romney and Paul did not attack each other during the primaries. Ron Paul said early on that Romney and he were friends. Of course, no one made too big a deal of that at the time.

Rand Paul has a meeting with Romney and comes out in support. And was vilified for it. At the time.

Maybe there's a scheme afoot--among rich people and corporations and a few select politicians. Maybe these folk don't like the idea of America giving up her sovereignty to the third-world b*strds of the UN, or the globalists behind it all.

Now, in the finest Hollywood tradition, who should ride in to help save the day, but Clint Eastwood?

Yeah, this is good.
I wanted to like Paul Ryan.

Before he was nationally known, Rep. Ryan visited me at ABC, and we went to lunch. He was terrific. He was a rare politician, one who actually cared about America's coming debt crisis and the unfairness of entitlements. He even talked about F.A. Hayek's "The Road to Serfdom"! If only more politicians thought that way.

But then the housing bubble burst. Ryan voted for TARP. Then he voted for the auto bailout. Who is this guy? I thought he believed in markets!

At Fox, when I got my own TV show, I asked him about...
