Rep. Ron Paul evaluated himself on Sunday as “pretty well-equipped” to be president.
“I would say nobody is perfect,” the Texas Republican said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I don’t know all the answers. I don’t want to run people’s lives and run the world and run the economy. So, my qualifications are a little bit different. But compared to others, I would say I’m pretty well-equipped.”
“I’ve had a fair amount of experience,” Paul said. “I’ve been in the military. I was in the military five years. That gives me a little bit of experience. So, I would say I’m pretty well-equipped.
“But to brag that I can run things, I don’t do that, because that’s not what a president is supposed to do. A president is supposed to guarantee and work for the protection of liberty and allow people to take care of their problems.”
