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.”
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
