After months of sitting on his bony little rear and refusing to endorse Mitt Romney, retiring U.S. Rep Ron Paul (R-TX) is finally opening his mouth…
…to complain about Barack Obama’s victory. And depress us all in the process:
Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week’s elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.
“We’re so far gone. We’re over the cliff,” the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television’s “In the Loop” program. “We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things.” The video can be seen at http://www.bloomberg.com/video/ron-paul-on-fiscal-cliff-and-vows-to-compromise-MYkAiqYBTaiHwXZL9Tvxkw.html.
Now do you understand why I said he has no place in the GOP, Save Jerseyans?
3,000,000 Americans who voted for John McCain sat home on Election Day. It’s safe to assume that at least a few of them were Paul supporters. Considering how Mitt lost Florida by less than 1%, Gary Johnson’s 44,101 votes might end up being decisive along with those who simply decided there wasn’t “enough of a difference” between Obama and Romney to go vote.
Tell that to a small businessman today… or the employees he’s about to either (1) lay off or (2) dump into the federal healthcare system.
Have fun in retirement, you jerk. Good riddance.
