Scheer Likes Paul?

Looks like yet another fairly hard- core lefty has come around to liking at least something about Republican presidential hopeful, Ron Paul. At least I think Robert Scheer is pretty hard left from other things I've read by him.

This commentary posted on lewrockwell.com might be what Scheer was referring to in his comments.

Go, Ron Paul! I think it's really something how this past Libertarian Party presidential candidate has raised so much interest from all sides of the political spectrum.

Yep. Paul is getting hit by statists from the Left and Right. That's one thing I like about him and I guess I'm one of the few people that won't dismiss a candidate simply because some fringe groups also support him. It all depends on what where the candidate stands on the issues.

Jonah Goldberg, from the Right, addresses that issue here- defending Paul. He considers Huckabee to be the Republican's scariest candidate.

I'm a socialist, but I like Ron Paul. His straightforward answers to debate questions are like a breath of fresh air. He's better qualified than any other Republican candidate, and I'd be more comfortable voting for him than I would be voting for most of the Democrats.

Like Carter, he probably wouldn't get much cooperation from the Congress, but gridlock is fine with me, and Ron Paul has the good sense to end our military adventure in Iraq.

Progressives who support Ron Paul really, really need to take another look. Please. All that shines is not gold!

Here's a good place to start.

It isn't often that this possum agrees with CPR but he is spot on here.
It also looks like you forced "splash" to sign up with blogger to comment here. He/she is also predictable in raising the "guilt by association" petard so common to the left.
Good on ya Fred!

Actually, I never noticed until now that anonymous comments aren't allowed since I went to moderation. Just tried to post a comment anonymously and it, indeed, does not allow anonymous comments.

I'll have to see if I can set it to allow anon comments as I only intended to moderate, not disallow anon comments.

It is kind of nice and quiet now, though.
