“It wouldn’t be my speech. That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.”

- Context: Ron Paul, in an interview, stated that the Republican convention planners had offered him a speaking role under two conditions, that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney. Paul refused. This comes as tensions between Ron Paul supporters and the Republican Party are at their highest. The Republican Party denied Paul delegates he had won during the primaries. Although he has not endorsed Romney, his son, Senator Rand Paul, has.
