Response to Grateful for Hope (Reply #36)

Tue Dec 27, 2011, 10:23 PM

38. as long as we're going here...

I think it isn't so clear what that post is intended to mean, especially when spooked made a post one minute later in which he said that Paul's "policies would hurt people." He may have meant, not so much that it would be a good thing for Paul to win, but that if Paul did win, these are two respects in which it would be good -- silver linings, so to speak.

That said, I poked around a bit and found a thread from the preceding week by spooked titled, "If this is true, I can't see how I can vote for Obama in November 2012." That doesn't really prove that he intended to endorse Ron Paul, but at least it creates a context in which he would be less likely to get the benefit of the doubt.

(As for me, I agree with you: I'm not a Ron Paul admirer at all. Yes, it's refreshing to have an anti-war voice in Republican debates, but even there he seems to be basically a paranoid isolationist, not something I relish in a leader.)
