Ron Paul "Probably" Won't Make Another White House Bid

www.cbsnews.com...

(CBS)Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), whose bid for the GOP presidential nomination last year electrified libertarians and generated a passionate following online, told Bob Schieffer that he will "probably" not run for president in 2012 during a special "Washington Unplugged" interview.

In a free-flowing conversation, Paul was pessimistic about both the direction of his party and the country.

Personally, I would like to see him run again.

His loss.

I voted for Obama this time, not because he is the one I thought is the best guy for office (I still think Hillary would be better), but because McCain was such a looser (especially when he added Palin to his campaign)...

If GOP had Ron there, now they would be in control again, cuz I would vote (even though I'm democrat) for him, but, nooooo, they could not give the damn WAR up, they like it so much more that this country, apparently

Paul will be 76 in 2012. 2008 was his last shot and it's too bad for him the economic mess didn't strike a year earlier.

Ron Paul is a doctor who takes better care of his health than most people. It is possible that at 76 he may be in good enough shape whereby he would consider the run. No one is indispensable but his message and other bright ideas are necessary for the juggernaut of freedom. The message is be tough on problems but be gentle on people. In my thoughts that is the best argument, good ideas will outlast the pleothra of bad ones.

If he was dead in a casket he'd still make for a better President than the last and current one.

Just stand his corpse up to the podium..that's good enough for me. We'll just play some youtube videos to voice over the mic.

Could you imagine if he was actually president right now and how differently things would be?

Would we still be in some hurt...definitely..possibly worse...but we would actually be headed in the RIGHT direction.

He'd cut government spending and cut income taxes as soon as he could. Cut gobs of wasteful spending...wiping out the fed....returning power to where it should be...the states.

And most of all...we know what he would do because the man doesn't lie and is probably the most honest politician out there.

Could you imagine actually trusting a President again?

It's been a long time since i've done that...if ever.

holy hell what a mistake that we made.

also--- ron paul is very humble


he realizes it's not about him


it's the movement,,, the ideas he represents,,,, that is attracting people to his cause


and i guess that is great,,, because they will live on regardless if ron paul is there to express them or not


many people all over the us are getting involved in the local level and will work there way up,,, which is probably the best way and best chance we have of succeeding long term

I don't trust Paul. In 2008 he continually said he accepts the Bush story on 911!!!. He was lying. Like every congressman he knows our govt was involved.
