Being # 1 isn’t easy. Especially when it’s a heated Republican primary race with caucuses right around the corner. Congressman Ron Paul may not have been polling at the top for long, but with the position he is in now comes increased scrutiny.
There is no doubt that Paul was aggravated by the newsletter questions. Maybe he is tired of answering old questions or he doesn’t want to scratch old political wounds. Regardless, this kind of pressure is part of the process. It is hard to tell if Paul simply ended the interview early after Borger stayed on the subject or if the time was already up. He didn’t exit with a smile though!
