First of all Obama is not destroying the economy. In truth the President actually has very little to do with the economy, as in day-to-day business operations. And Ron Paul can be called "an anti-interventionist" but its still the same isolationism, just repackaged.

The President can cut the executive budget down to nothing and he can veto all the spending bills.
Paul could do quite a bit on his own without the need for Congress to do anything.
The American President is much more akin to a dictator than an equal arm of the federal government. This power can be used for good in Paul's case, or it can be used for evil in Obama's case.
