Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul described opponents Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum as “typical of what’s wrong with the country,” and said his campaign continues to improve.

“Romney’s been up and down,” Paul said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “The others have been up and down. I haven’t been down. I keep going up.”

He commented on Romney’s remark at the CPAC convention in Washington, D.C., about being “severely conservative,” and said the former Massachusetts governor is “every bit as conservative as the other two.”

“All of them are rather typical of what’s wrong with the country — that they don’t have firm convictions,” Paul said. “They’re very rigid in flip-flopping. I think if the country only has the choice of those three individuals, they have to look for the person who might be more willing to look at even more conservative ideas.

“All three of them have represented the same system, the same status quo, in not wanting changes in the foreign policy,” he continued. “None of them are talking about real spending cuts. They’re not a whole lot different. When it comes down to those three, it’s probably going to be management style more than anything else.”
