Is Newport Beach's Bill Gross ready to throw some of his big bucks at Ron Paul? With PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel having donated $2.6 million of the $3.4 million Endorse Liberty has raised since the pro-Paul SuperPAC's Dec. 20 creation, a money watcher wonders if Gross--the co-founder of Pacific Investment Management (PIMCO) and manager of the Newport Beach firm's $252.2 billion Total Return Fund--will be the next to break out his checkbook.

Warning: ZeroHedge's Tyler Durden pulled the following out of his, ahem, assets:

Isn't it about time the Newport Beach multibillionaire reached into his back pocket and put his money where his mouth is, especially following his tongue in cheek endorsement of Ron Paul for president?

Durden is having fun with Gross saying "I'm a little Ron Paulish" 6 minutes and 24 seconds into the following CNBC clip:



The full context: Gross shares Paul's dim view of the monetary policies of Fed chief Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

I am voting for Ron Paul!  I will write him in if I have to.  I will NOT vote for anyone who promotes war!  We are fighting wars for the Project for the New American Century and the Foreign Policy Initiative, which is a think-tank that promotes: diplomatic, economic, and military engagement IN THE WORLD!  The Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE bank which charges us interest on our own currency, and it isn't backed by anything except the taxpayers and more worthless paper. So, our central bank are pirates, and we are robbing and pillaging the middle east.  End the wars!  The further we go into debt, the more they take away our freedom!

His main man is a terrible person who sees only accretion to the rich as a good.  If Bill gives a penny to Dr. Ding-Dong Paul, I will sell all my Pimco holdings.

DIM VIEW ? LMAO it's dim to understand the corruption of our monetary system? It's dim to ask questions of how the FED moves money around and destroys currencies through inflation then deflation.  It's very dim to believe in a constitutionally based monetary system that has never been amended.  It's dim to accept a private for profit corporation control the worlds reserve currency.

Actually a 100 Million dollar infusion would be nice but what would be nicer would be if they actually counted the votes

Did you see the pictures of how many people came out to support RON PAUL this entire week at the different stops around the country?! I cry with joy to see that Americans can see through these media moguls that spread their lies to our televisions....Liberty, Love of Country, and Freedom are no match for however many trillions "The Elite" may want to spend to supress it!! This is a fire no media can put out!!! The people pouring into the streets are proof that America is collectively giving the middle finger to "The Fed & it's cohorts" !! Not to mention the mainstream media and all the corrupted politicians are in bed with Wall Street thugs! Meanwhile our true Countrymen...also known as: Army, Navy, Marines, Airforce, & National Guard....are getting their legs blown off & losing their lives, so the corrupt can have a bigger bank account. My friends and neighbors here in Praire Grove, AR say.....RON PAUL OR NOTHING AT ALL!!!!!!!!

Actually, if you watch the 'Heavy Hitters' segment on Bloomberg with Bill Gross and Larry Fink, many of their views both financial and political come across as very 'Ron Paul'ish'.

Oi vey.  "Dim" in this context means "disapproving" or "skeptical."  For example, I have a dim view of Gustavo's politics.

The full context: Gross shares Paul's dim view of the monetary policies of Fed Chief Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.Of course... Gross runs the largest bond Fund in the world and the actions of the Fed could really fuck up his day! if you understand how bonds work.

b/c Paul's message is very ideologically consistent.  It sounds guano crazy at first, but when you puzzle it out and apply a little logical progression, you come to the conclusion that there is one sustainable policy, constitutional enumeration of authorities, and that dictates domestic, foreign, social and economic policy at the federal level.

Therefore at the federal level you have;Zero income taxZero foreign aidZero undeclared foreign warZero drug warZero market internevtionZero firearm restrictionZero deficit spendingZero unbacked paper money

With a Paul administration, the US would have a severe recession lasting 6 to 12 months while the economy restructures, and then 10-12 years of absolute prosperity.

It dosn't matter how many billionairs back Ron Paul, the GOP string pullers are not going to let the good Doc have the nomination without a fight, and that's not a fight a few million (or billion) is going to win.

Now, if Prophet Paul runs 3rd party and gets some billion-backing... different story.  People are so tired of the 2-party prison rape they've been getting that it just may fly this time around.

Big Butter Jesus I hope so.

My politics are Marxist of the Groucho variety—how can you possibly have a dim view of that???

Don't call it "dim". It's not "dim". Paul has always been right about the "fed", and it's time to cut the bull.

You are so correct. I am 67 and living in Costa Rica. I fear for my 3 kids living in the USA if Dr. Ron Paul does not lead.

that was a quote from the story... But shall we say the Bills and Mohamed's opinion of the  feds policy has been less than stellar.

I think you should stay there.  This is a country that shares its wealth with those who need help when there are decent administrations.  We don;t want you back.  You are what makes America sick, the I'veGot Mine, Jack mentality.
