I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Ron Paul: I Probably Won’t Run For President In 2012

by @ 4:43 pm on February 27, 2009. Filed under 2012 Election, Politics, Ron Paul

Bob Schieffer interviewed Ron Paul on his “Washington Unplugged” show recently and Paul seemed to suggest that he probably will not be a candidate for President in 2012.

Here’s the first clip, where Paul discusses the state and future of the Republican Party, the use of the Internet in political campaigns, and says that another run for President is “not on his agenda”:

Paul also noted in this segment that he hasn’t been to a Joint Session speech for the last ten years. Good for him, usually they’re a waste of time

In the second clip, Paul talks about Obama’s foreign policy and about the economic crisis:

Given his age, it’s not surprising that Paul would bow out of another run. I think he did all he could, imperfect though it was, in 2008. Better to let someone like Gary Johnson or Mark Sanford try to pick up the ball and run with it.

    Everything is in Paul’s favor to win the nomination. He will run if the people ask him. I will support Ron Paul for 2012 no question about it. Paul, is more popular now then ever before.

    I hope the GOP will choose Paul as the next opposing view after Obama’s next big speech.

    All for Gary Johnson giving it a run.
