David Stockman Endorses Ron Paul for President

The Daily Beast reports:

Reagan White House budget guru David Stockman talks to Lloyd Grove about the dangers of ignoring the deficit, why Bernanke, Geithner, and Summers must be fired ASAP—and his support for Ron Paul. [Groves writes]

…Which means: Get out of Afghanistan and Iraq right away—the same prescription touted by renegade Republican congressman Ron Paul.

“I’m totally in agreement with Ron Paul,” Stockman says. “I don’t think he can be elected president, but I think he’s the only guy who really understands monetary policy, economic policy, the proper role of the state, the proper role of the U.S. in the world. On the other hand, the world is changing pretty dramatically before our eyes. I wouldn’t rule out anything right now. But if you asked me who is speaking truth to power, it’s Ron Paul.”
The entire interview is worth reading and is here.

  1. I don't understand why they have to add "I don't think he can be elected..." How would they feel if they were the principled candidate and someone said I agree with everything, but you won't win.
