I find this essayÂ very odd. Weyrich is sizing up the candidates. He says Paul has some “strange” ideas. He says Romney has the most grassroots support. I don’t get it.
Weyrich has been becoming more paleo in recent years. He has always been one of the better of the beltway conservatives. What views of Ron Paul does he think are “strange?” The gold standard? Getting rid of the Fed and the IRS? Of course Weyrich has been around long enough to know that these positions were once conservative boilerplate. Weyrich owes Ron Paul and hisÂ supporters an explanation.
