Sarah Palin Jumping In? Chris Christie? How about Rand Paul?Submitted by Treg on Tue, 09/06/2011 - 10:42
For us political junkies, the 2012 race is "on". But for most of America, the next 5 Republican debates will be a fast click on the remote. They will click and say, "I'll start to pay attention later"...like Labor Day NEXT YEAR!
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin still has time to jump in and so does Chris Christie. They both know that there is plenty of time. Even Rick Perry does not feel the urgency.
Because our R3VOLution is big enough, I think we can entertain one more Paul on stage, Rand Paul.
Rand Paul "makes his own decisions" as he says, and so I think we should encourage him to run.
If for no other reason then the media will love this "father-son" race. Rand can respond, I think my candidacy helps my father, like his candidacy has helped mine." And then there will be the inevitable question, "What do you do if he beat you?" and the clever Rand Can say, "Or I beat dad. Well the way we figure it, any Paul victory is a Freedom victory."
Most of all, we in the R3VOLution get to introduce Rand Paul to a National audience during 5 TV debates. In 2016, when the GOP elites are all behind Jeb Bush, the rank n file will dearly remember Rand Paul.
Moreover, if Rand was to jump into the debate, he would ADD another FREEDOM voice to resist the chorus of NeoCon warmongering. I like that.
In peace and liberty,
