And tied for first in some of the polls in Iowa Texas congressman Ron Paul's new -- Says his fellow candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have more bark than bite.
When it comes to limiting the size of the government take a listen -- this.
We need -- years budget crisis no problem got a trillion bucks -- one that's trillion with a Department of Education gone interior.
Just -- it to joining me now is the man who's bringing the fight to the lap dogs for big government.
Texas Republican congressman Ron Paul congressman fall as always it's a pleasure welcome back.
To freedom watch.
Thank you how do you explain the the shift in the polls as to who's up who's down.
And now what appears to be movement toward Newt Gingrich was far far more.
In common with Barack Obama that he does with it true small government values the values that you've been preaching.
You know if we have just gone through six months.
Flavor of the month of the flavor of the week.
I would think that you know this is for real.
I don't know if this surge for our new Israel doesn't seem to be.
To me that it really is it seems like -- people are paying a lot of attention when they do they have a superficial opinion about somebody and whoever's -- the most.
News in the last news cycle seems to get the most attention.
So I think it's too early to tell.
But also I think when that -- dropped out those individuals went someplace else and and they have gone over to.
Over to -- but I think can say yeah look more carefully at -- have you have been mentioned about.
His alliance with progressive business theater -- about you know like I think conservatives are gonna have to take a more careful look.
Isn't it sad ironic that in the same day -- almost the exact same time.
That President Obama was speaking in a small rural town in Kansas that hasn't voted for Republican for president over a hundred years.
Identifying himself with Theodore Roosevelt.
Newt Gingrich was on Glenn Beck's radio show identifying.
Yourself with Theodore Roosevelt -- you have gadget of these two guys actually identified with the same big government hero when in fact they hope.
We you know those of us that sometime thinkers planning amnesty may be trying to -- parties.
So there's no difference they you know those who love the -- name of the foreign policy and they love the welfare.
You know they're satisfied -- both candidates that's that's the secret conspiracy theory but now it's sort out in the open.
You know that there's two people that would have outwardly and openly supporting the they're saying heroes -- I would say should be a strong message to the American people because.
The message I'm hearing from Arab people and the demonstration of our streets -- they're sick and tired of what they're having and the status quo.
And they're certainly not going to file net fine that he answer just by sorting -- by supporting somebody who has very similar views to.
You mentioned the Fed Ben Bernanke today.
Claims that we should have known all along about the unbelievable amounts of money that he was funneling to American banks.
And to foreign banks while the congress was voting for TARP and stimulus packages as a result of a lawsuit filed by fox business and by our colleagues at Bloomberg News we discovered the number was seven point seven should -- -- In the eight month period from September 8.
September 08 to April 09 now chairman Bernanke says we should have been surprised about it we -- members of congress on it.
What were you briefed on that's where you -- how much money the Fed was printing of the -- -- while the congress was borrowing money giving it to the same banks.
Now and I and I was very suspect I assume -- they were doing this all along so.
Even with that my skepticism what the -- -- does and what they don't tell us you know still was a little bit shocking to -- -- -- -- -- the amount.
Because there -- other numbers that are actually even bigger than seven trillion dollars and -- prior period of time.
Might be well over fifteen trillion dollars in credit that they were churning in and out -- domestic banks as well has -- banks so it's a big operation for him to indicate.
That we should have known and he gave us that information that's stretching -- out tonight.
Congressman Paul it's a pleasure thanks very much for joining us thank you --
