Ron Paul takes step toward presidential run

Texas Congressman Ron Paul plans to announce on Tuesday in Iowa that he is forming a presidential exploratory committee.

Drew Ivers, Paul's 2008 Iowa caucus campaign manager, said the Republican congressman will announce his plans Tuesday afternoon at Des Moines hotel.

Paul also will name an Iowa campaign team at the event, Ivers said.

Paul, 75, finished fifth in the 2008 caucuses and has visited Iowa seven times since. He headlined an event in Sioux Center two weeks ago for a social conservative group, and he spoke at a rally for Christian home-school advocates at the Iowa Capitol in Des Moines last month.

Paul is a favorite among libertarians and enjoys strong backing by many tea party supporters.

I love the guy, but he is too old. He can still get the word out and let other people fight over who gets to be King of the House of Cards.

It won't matter. Should he become President, he will be controlled by the same people who control the rest of the presidents. He will do the same things.

Or if he isn't willing to kow-tow to the powers that be, he'll never make it to the White House anyway.
