Bill Maher Endorses Ron Paul on CNN
Wolf Blitzer had Bill Maher on his show last night and asked the former Politically Incorrect host who he would think would make the best Republican nominee for President.
Maher chose Ron Paul, not because Maher agrees in Paul's stance in ending the so called War on Drugs, or on Paul's desire to end Income Tax so that the US would be forced to stop trying to be the world police. But Maher said that Paul is really the only Republican who can get us out of the war in Iraq because he's the only one on the right standing up against this war now, which would make it easier to pull the troops out if he was elected.
Maher's point is, how do you end the war (something the overwhelming majority of Americans want), if you won the nomination by being pro-war?
