Mitt Romney suddenly has a major problem that promising to fire Bernanke doesn’t seem likely to fix.
As we expected, Ron Paul has refused to endorse Mitt Romney.
Ron Paul stated today that he has declined a speaking invitation at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, stating the offer had been conditional upon the Romney campaign approving Paul’s speech beforehand, as well as Paul giving a full endorsement to Mr. Romney.
Mr. Paul, in an interview, said convention planners had offered him an opportunity to speak under two conditions: that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney. He declined.
“It wouldn’t be my speech,” Mr. Paul said. “That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.”
Mr. Paul’s campaign chairman, Jesse Benton, acknowledged the frustrations that the Paul high command had been forced to manage.
