Lets see what everyone has to say.

Joe asks him about the young people who supported him.

“When I go to the campus’ I’m encouraged, but when I go to the hill…”

Joe: “Does the Republican party get it yet?…”

Ron Paul: “I don’t think so.” He goes on about not cutting the foreign aid or the “empire” He hits the federal reserve.

Capeheart: How do you translate that energy to the actual polls?

Paul: In a few years they will be in the job market and will care. I’m more interested in changing philosophy than policy

Sorkin: Are we ever going to get financial reform?

Paul: “Lets hope not because they would make things a lot worse…Pretending regulations would make things better is incorrect…let the market regulate it.”

Melissa: This seems like a stunning overstatement about young people. Is this really about their perspective or are you just a “character”.

Paul: Revolutions don’t come without the support of the young. Any time I see a young person I give them a copy of the constitution.

Joe quotes his book quoting Paul: “Ironically by transferring risk the government risks a crash” quote is from 2003

Paul: I’m competing with Keynes economic system every day with the idea of the free market.

Joe: Would Romney make a difference?

Paul: At the moment no, but if the movement grows then the pressure will grow. He is certainly right about Romney, he will go were the people take him.

One of the big advantages that Paul has in a setting like this is that he comes across very reasonably. He actually has a great potential to take “liberal” votes due to his isolationism in terms of the anti-war absolutists. I do think that MSNBC likes to promote him because it gives Republicans fits.
