    to be President?? I remember it being an issue a few years back with McCain, and Paul is actually a year older than him.

    Watching the republicans and their primary race so far...you would think they are undercover democrats, doing whatever it takes to get Obama elected again. You would think after getting him elected in the first place they would have changed their messenger, but no. A year older than McCain you say? go figure.:cuckoo:

    I see you got your first pointless response.

    On topic, I do believe he is too old and set in his beliefs. Unlike Obama we need someone who is flexible enough to consider ideas beyond his own. Paul is one of the most stubborn politicians I've seen on our side.

    I think that the Republicans will become a fractured party arguing among themselves, Tea Party on one side and alleged RINO's on the other. They will nominate a person who they think will be tough and take no shit from anyone. The American people will reject this person as an extremist and Obama will get re-elected. Yet again conservative Republicans will be responsible for another four years of Obama.

    Paul has too limited a view of world affairs to be President. He has always existed on the political fringe and could not build consensus with either party

    yes. Too old and too set in his ways, he thinks he knows better because he is older. Elderly does not mean wise.

    Other cultures respect the elderly for their wisdom and contributions.

    American culture seldom if ever does. His age doesnt bother me.
