Ron Paul Eats With Ben Bernanke: ‘He’s For The Gold Standard Now’

Ron Paul ate with Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, on Wednesday, and after their meal Paul joked that “he’s for the gold standard now.”

Ron Paul, the only remaining official opponent to Mitt Romney in the 2012 Republican presidential primary, and Bernanke ate together at the Federal Reserve‘s headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, during which they had what Paul described as “sort of an open discussion,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

  • Can someone say “Andrew Breitbart”?

    I just hope that isnt going to be the case with Ron Paul.

  • I like alot of Ron Paul’s ideas. His chances of winning the general election is next to zero. Gary Johnson won the libertarian party spot and they would split many of the votes and Obama gets four more years. I will be more than happy to support Romney as he would make a much better President than Obama. Is he what the country needs? No, but this country will not elect leaders that will make the spending cuts and the tax cuts at the same time. That was the fix for the depression of 1920-1921. Bush tried tax cuts with no spending cuts and that did not work. Obama tried huge amounts of spending and that has not worked. People like the tax cuts, but they do not like the spending cuts as it would hurt for a few years, but the pain will be worse if we keep on kicking the can down the road, when the end of the road comes upon us and we go over the cliff hitting the bottom will really hurt.
