Ron Paul Lashes Out at Romney Critics


ron-paul1In an interview outside a Manchester polling place, Ron Paul lashed out at fellow Republicans for making unfair and ignorant attacks on Mitt Romney’s business record.

“I think they’re wrong. I think they’re totally misunderstanding the way the market works,” Paul told me. “They are either just demagoguing or they don’t have the vaguest idea how the market works.”

Paul also came to Romney’s defense for saying “I like to be able to fire people.”

“I think they’re unfairly attacking him on that issue because he never really literally said that,” Paul said. “They’ve taken him way out of context. … He wants to fire companies.”

In Paul’s view, Romney is right to say that he created jobs by restructuring companies.

“I think they’re way overboard on saying that he wants to fire people, he doesn’t care, Paul said. “You save companies, you save jobs when you reorganize companies that are going to go bankrupt. And they don’t understand that.”

  1. Smartest thing Ron Paul has said all campaign.
    NewtGingrichFan, why would you be a fan of a bitter, jealous, negative man who is launching an attack which will not stop Romney from winning the Republican nomination, but might seriously damage him in the general election and plays right into the hands of the Obama campaign?
