Congressman Paul Debates “Obama” on Fox News

In a bizarre appearance on the Fox Business Channel, Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Tx., joined host John Stossel for a mock debate with an impersonator of President Barack Obama.

Stossel insinuates the fake debate will foreshadow the 2012 Presidential campaign, but it’s unclear what this is supposed to accomplish other than more mocking of Paul’s candidacy.

Check it out:

It certainly doesn’t make Paul appear presidential. Also, is the faux Obama in blackface? I can’t tell.

UPDATE: If you’re scratching you’re head about this, particularly the impersonator, then you’re not alone. This is just, weird.

Much like Paul’s libertarian views, which excite conservatives and progressives alike, it’s always a little difficult to figure out what he’s doing and why he’s doing it.
