Tea Party-beloved KY Senator Rand Paul, (Ron Paul's son btw) has endorsed Mitt Romney as Republican Presidential nominee. His support and effort was first to his father's campaign, but now goes to the Romney camp.

If Romney chooses Rand Paul as VP, it would seem logical. He would in a single swoop unite the Libertarians, Southern Conservatives and Tea Party leaders around him, without an overshadowing presence like a Chris Christie for example.

So is Rand Paul angling to become the Romney VP or just falling in line with the presumptive nominee? Let me know what you think?

    In a general way, this is the problem with hero worship, in this case Ron Paul and his son Rand. Finding a savior is not the way to go. It seems that the TEA party has got it right, they have set up many local organizations and realize that it must be from the bottom up. Developing control at the local and state levels is as important or more so than the President or VP.

    Rand Paul thinks it's 1965. He'll fit right in.

    Rand's endorsement of Romney was probably the best thing he could do, he is behind the party, he is pragmatic, and knows his dad can't win against Obummer.

    To quote myself: A Rand Paul VEEP nomination would almost guarantee the election. It would prevent his dad from running as an independent, would garner at least 75% of the Paul supporters, energize the "going to stay home" conservatives, and he would be an excellent Pres if anything happened to Mitt.

    75% = about 3 people that probably won't remember to vote. "We're not in Kentucky anymore, Dorothy".

    I think Rand knows how important it is to get Obama out and he is willing to do what is necessary by endorsing Romney. He knows he can wait a while. He'll be running for President soon.

    That would be a complete disaster for Romney. Racists don't go over well in the general public.

    Rand Paul would probably be fatal to the Romney candidacy. His proposed evisceration of SS would be a rallying point against the GOP:

    "Paul’s plan would: cut the average Social Security recipient’s benefits by nearly 40 percent, reduce defense spending by nearly $100 billion below a level the Pentagon calls “devastating,” and end the current Medicare program in two years — even for current recipients, according to the Senate Budget Committee staff. It would eliminate the education, energy, housing and commerce departments, decimate homeland security, eviscerate programs for the poor, and give the wealthy a bonanza by reducing tax rates to 17 percent and eliminating taxes on capital gains and dividends." - http://blogs.detroitnews.com/...

    I certainly hope not, the VP is a deadend position in most cases and, barring ORomney slipping on a banana peel, he can do a lot more good for this country in the senate.

    If he is he might as well forget it as it would be suicidal for Romney to pick a racist as his VP.

    No, saying you were against the civil rights bill and would not have voted for it should give you a clue. Having racist newsletters attached to you doesn't help.

    Then you should have real anger towards the Democrats. They were practically forced into signing the civil rights bill in the 60s.

    Why should I as they are today's Republicans still angry over the civil rights bill ala Ron and Rand Paul.
  • texasred luvguins 2012/06/11 21:56:41

    Wrong again. And neither Ron or Rand Paul are angry over the civil rights bill. They just saw there were unintended consequences to go along with the intended consequences.

    Doesn't matter to me. We have some excellent candidates for VP without Ron or Rand. But don't discount Rand. He's got a lot more going for him than you people on the left want to admit. (And those positives have nothing to do with the ongoing nasty left wing accusations.)

    He is just another GOP Senator saboteur, and he doesn't care about the poor in the state he ran in.

    Quite possible. He has a lesser chance. But has a WAY better record than a "community-organizer" or " visiting lecturer" !!
