In the GOP debate, Ron Paul again showed he isn’t particularly upset with, or allied with, anyone. – Washington Wire – WSJ

So what does frost the 76 year-old former obstetrician? Any suggestion that his position–he’s for a highly limited government, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and an overhaul of the federal monetary system—isn’t politically practical.

“If you give up on your principles I don’t think that’s being pragmatic,” says Mr. Paul, whose support ranges from 9% to 13% in recent polls. “Doing the wrong thing, even partially, isn’t being practical…if you have the right ideas and are forceful enough…I think you can get the support you need.”

As proof, he cites his work with Democratic Reps. Dennis Kucinich (Ohio) and Barney Frank (Mass.) and independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) to stop the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and fight government curbs on civil liberties.
