Robert Paul considers jumping into U.S. Senate race in Texas

First it was just Ron Paul.

An obstetrician/gynecologist and libertarian-leaning Republican, Paul of Lake Jackson was elected to the U.S. House more than 20 years ago and maintains a devout following of those who echo his anti-war, anti-tax, limited government beliefs.

Then he was joined by his son, Rand, a Republican ophthalmologist, who became a darling of the Tea Party movement in Kentucky and was elected last year to serve as the Bluegrass State's junior senator. He was sworn in to the U.S. Senate in January.

Now a third Paul - this one Robert Paul, a doctor who runs a family medical practice in Benbrook and lives in Fort Worth - is mulling over whether to make his own congressional bid.

After campaigning for his father, most notably giving speeches during the elder Paul's 2008 presidential bid, Robert Paul is considering whether to jump into the race to replace Kay Bailey Hutchison in the U.S. Senate when her term expires in January of 2013.

"I have thought about running," Robert Paul, one of five children, told the Star-Telegram. "I am very happy as a physician, but (I) have a lot of concern about the debt."

The Pauls are becoming like

The Pauls are becoming like the Kennedy's in that there's a chance that many family members will be politicians.

I hope your comparison only

I hope your comparison only refers to familial relationships. I don't see the Pauls as a dynasty of wealth and power built on criminal activity and payoffs such as the Kennedys. Unlike the Kennedys, the Pauls, whose moral centers are fixed and steady, offer genuine statesmanship and political leadership. We live in a time where such champions are needed.

I think

we need another Paul-itician. :)
