Dick Morris: Ron Paul More Liberal Than Obama

Thursday, 29 Dec 2011 12:23 AM

Speaking on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" Wednesday night, political strategist and best-selling author Dick Morris called Rep. Ron Paul's rise in the polling for the Iowa caucuses one of the most distressing political developments of the season.

Morris told substitute host Eric Bolling that it was "horrible" that Paul was doing so well. Several polls have him leading in Iowa, though in recent days former House Speaker Newt Gingrich seems to be mounting a comeback.

"I think that he is absolutely the most liberal, radical, left-wing person to run for president of the United States in the last 50 years," Morris said. "Nobody else wants to dismantle the military, including Obama, but he does. Even Obama doesn't want to repeal the Patriot Act. But he does.

"Even Obama doesn't say that we caused 9-11 and brought it on ourselves. But Ron Paul does. Even Obama doesn't want to legalize heroin and cocaine, but Ron Paul does. This guy is no conservative. This guy is a ultra, ultraleft-wing radical.

Bolling asked what happens if Paul wins at least 20 percent of the vote.

"I pray he doesn't," Morris said. "I pray the voters of Iowa recover their senses. Anyone who votes for Ron Paul might as well vote for Obama. There is nobody with an ounce of political sense that believes he can defeat President Obama."
