Vivek announced his candidacy on Tucker's show a few months back, and many times before that appeared as a guest. Not sure whether that constitutes an endorsement (probably not), but Tucker does seem to like him.

IMHO, he lacks political seasoning to be President, but he'd make a great Cabinet official.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
The more I hear him talk, the better I like him.
The politically seasoned have proven to be mostly worthless, if not a detriment to the Republic.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

I like some of what he says now, but not too long ago he was saying something different. This is why many see him as an opportunist and tool of Trump.

One example:

Republican 2024 White House hopeful @VivekGRamaswamy recently denied ever supporting a Bernie Sanders bill to use taxpayer dollars for free COVID-19 mask handouts — despite calling it "sensible" at the time in 2020.

Vivek Ramaswamy denies backing Bernie Sanders COVID mask bill he once touted as 'sensible'

Republican 2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy recently alleged he never supported a Sen. Bernie Sanders-led COVID-19 proposal on masking despite praising it at the time as "sensible," records show.

In an Aug. 1 recorded spaces conversation on X, formerly known as Twitter, Ramaswamy said around the 20-minute mark, "No," when asked by commentator Josie Glabach if the wealthy businessman "ever supported 'Masks for All' legislation by Bernie Sanders." However, the claim falls in contrast to a tweet by the GOP White House hopeful in July 2020 in which he replied to ex-Obama official Andy Slavitt, who co-authored a CNN op-ed with the senator calling for "masks for every American."

"My policy views don't often align with Bernie, but this strikes me as a sensible idea," Ramaswamy said in 2020 in response to Slavitt, who would go on to become President Joe Biden's senior COVID-19 adviser, sharing the article on social media. "The cost is a tiny fraction of other less compelling federal expenditures on COVID-19."

"They should have picked someone from the political right as a co-author to show consensus," he added.

It's the latest example of Ramaswamy backtracking on prior claims on the presidential campaign trail ...

The fact that Carlson is pushing Ramaswamy at the same time as he is sabotaging the Republican debates by hosting an interview with the guy who refused to participate in them... tells me Trump is running Ramaswamy as his stalking horse.

Yes indeed he is.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
