Rand Paul: Ron Paul Will Not Win...Not Sure What He Will Do In Terms Of Endorsing Romney

What's going on? Is Rand Paul being sarcastic in this interview or did he just admit that Ron Paul is unlikely to win?

http://foxnewsinsider.com/2012/05/08/senator-rand-paul-addre...

I can't see how this interview is good for Ron Paul. "I don't know if Ron Paul will endorse Romney" Doesn't sound good.

Relax Romney Supporters

The race is over, stay home from the conventions. There is no take-over in progress. Ron Paul only wants a speaking slot at the convention. (whispering) Sleep well and trust the MSM. Sleep.

Shhh. See you in Tampa Paulers.

WTF?? This is why I don't

WTF?? This is why I don't support Rand.. He just says things that makes me cringe ... he'll never be his dad... unfortunately..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

best part was

the reporter being caught off-guard about Ron Paul actually winning states!!! That should be enlightening to people.

The Rand Paul comment was cut off. I personally think he was pointing out the enthusiasm that Ron Paul's supporters have with his message.

Ron Paul Soft Comment Being Quoted by the MSM

Do a search, you'll find that the MSM is now quoting Ron Paul's dovish comments

http://www.statecolumn.com/articles/ron-paul-on-a-third-part...

Despite the inevitability of a Romney victory, Mr. Paul is pressing forward with his plans for the GOP convention. When asked if he will endorse the Bain Capital co-founder for the Republican presidential nomination, the former Air Force surgeon said: “I’m not thinking about that as much as what kind of presence we’ll have, how many people we’re going to have there, and what kind of an influence we can have on the platform in Tampa.”

To what extent is Rand even

To what extent is Rand even involved with the campaign? I know he's done some rallies, but from his answer he sure seems out of the loop.

Either way I wouldn't think too much of it. The campaign, and Rand are hedging their bets. They have done so from the beginning. Politically it's not smart for Rand to associate with his dad too much anyway.

I don't see Dr. Paul endorsing a "sea of garbage"

That type of thing is done by establishment candidates like Newt and Team-sport-um.

I decided to read the comments before watching the video...

and to those of you who think this is the end of the world... RELAX! After I watched it I thought "This is not THAT big of a deal" do I wish that Rand would rip into Neil about the ELECTION/VOTER FRAUD FAUX NEWS BLACKOUTS?? Yes I do..but Im guessing ALL OF THIS will come later this year..lets just stay positive people and continue work hard for the VICTORY..its been done before..and Dr. Paul is actually in a better position to pull this thing off..but I dont care WHO YOU ARE or who you pray to...there is POWER IN PRAYER and I really PRAY that those of you believe in this will indeed send a prayer to God for Dr. Pauls protection and blessings. We need to pray that the vail that covers the eyes of the masses gets pulled away..its happening more and more everyday. Lets not fight amoungst ourselves..lets fight our enemies and get Dr. Paul in the White House!!! Can I GET AN AMEN????

Cannabis Hemp Oil CURES DISEASE

Why...

would anyone expect Ron to endorse a typical empty suit politician like Romney? Bad Blood??? Cavuto you schmuck there doesn't have to be bad blood how about the fact that Romney is a joke, he just wants to be President cause he looks the role and he's looking for power, he's probably the biggest phony out there. They want Ron to endorse a guy just cause he has an (R) next to his name--later for that. I'd bet Romney 10,000 that he doesn't get a Paul endorsement. This is far from over. RP2012 We Don't Need The GOP, The GOP Needs Us

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

my post i did today talks about that

http://www.dailypaul.com/231827/convention-battle-plan-the-t...

read this post. It will clarify what is going on....

This is just typical Rand...

This is just typical Rand... Yes, it is subtle sarcasm I think. It's as if to say, Ron has thousands of people showing up to his rallies, and yet he is unelectable, and the GOP are rejecting the one candidate who is actually growing the party...how absurd is this picture?

It would be nice if Rand would preface his sarcasm

by telling the viewers that an average of 5,000 people attend Ron Paul's Rallies and he has won 8 straight state convention delegate contests..FOR REAL...NO DIEBOLD OR TURNING OUT THE LIGHTS AND RUNNING OFF WITH BALLOTS....C'MON RAND ??

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Change the damn title rothschild.

RON PAUL 2012

Rand didn't sound like he was joking

However, I feel like Ron has also said it was unlikely he would win the nomination as well. Having said that, there is a part of me that wonders if any of this is a tactic to keep Romney supporters from voting ("Why bother? We've already won."). We know the Ron Paul supporters will vote though. Who knows?

I do think that if the convention goes to a 2nd round that we'll have a real shot at winning this thing (at least that's my impression from reading/hearing about our delegate count).

read my post

read my post. Maybe it will help you see the bigger picture.

Sometimes it is easier to agree with the competition than to

give away your hand or deal with the whole thing for the nth time.

My vote is I think people are putting too fine a point on it...that seems like poking the media in the eye with the whole thing...of like..."hey if you can't see it, I'm not going to point it out to you!"

The question is did

Rand or did'nt he say his dad Dr.Paul is not gana win the nomination?

We need not concern ourselves

We know mathematically we have a chance and judging by our performance so far, we know it's possible.

Let Ron Paul and Rand and the Judge and Wead take care of the MSM, the media and speeches while we handle everything else. They'll say things at key points for their own reasons weather it be honest opinion or political timing, we don't need to know and shouldn't know.

Let's press on. Stopping Mitt Romney is possible.

You don't tell the Nation on TV that your father isn't going to

win the nomination.. Hell we've had Stossel, Judge and Wead all say Dr.Paul is gonna catch on this week and here we have this fucking doofus saying he isn't..

He needs to shut his hole.

Yes, perfect advice.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

The chance remaining matters less and less

As time goes on. Remaining true in the face of adversity to the end, and then still remaining true.

There is an incredible honour in this movement. It is in the acceptance of a greater purpose that in grows in defeat, and briefly exults in victory before pressing onward. And as that pattern develops and is realised, the movement becomes unstoppable.

The most important thing to remember is...

...Ron Paul is a rock star for liberty and he is worrying Romney & Obama. Obama wants to run against Romney because he has no chance against RP. Romney thought he had this all wrapped up with all the international bankers backing him. In addition; "The Fed" favors Obama or Romney and fears a possible President Paul. I am not worried about what Rand Paul said.

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they attack you, then you win!"

"The belief is worthless if the fear of social and physical punishment overrides the belief."

Neil is talking the nomination, Ron Paul is taking the party

and I did not get the same impression that many of you did. He said thousands are showing up to see RP, the "won't win" statement was pointing out the support for RP even though the "impression" is he won't win. Conversely why are thousands showing up at rallies if he can't win? When Neil said he has not won a state, Rand points out RP has taken over several state delegations. Rand is a tad subtle, I guess he could have said: Neil you idiot, your not keeping up with current events, he is in the process of taking over the whole Republican party. I would say that is winning in the broadest definition of the term. They still don't know there is a revolution going on, when its over Ron Paul will own the Republican party.

Dear Lord, they don't compare political strategy to chess

for no reason people.
Don't know what else to say Rothschild, other than:

  • politics is obviously not your forte, or
  • nice try (?)

Either way, rentrer en France

This Rothschild dude is from France trying to

stir things up... anyways who would use a name like Rothschild on the Daily Paul? Be gone dude or dudette!!!

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

What's in a name?

What kind of person would mistreat another because of his or her name?

Is there some unwritten code as to what type of names are not accepted as members on this site?

It does appear to be so....

Give me a list of other Jewish names you don't like so that if I decide to change my name I will avoid choosing one that you don't like.

We LOVE Jews 4 Ron Paul

...and the many Jewish friends of Ron Paul as well as our own friends and I have many. Some of the greatest intellectuals in the Libertarian Party as it once stood are fervent supporters of Dr. Paul. There are many Jewish supporters who have never been a part of the Libertarian Party...they just believe in liberty and equal rights for all.

ABSOLUTELY no dislike of the Jewish people here. Even among Christians as we know our roots.

You and I have nothing in common. Enjoy your stay on the DP. Hope you learn many things that will enrich you! Peace.

I don't see how being realistic is negative

Of course for brainwashed people "reality" is something relative, so I see Rand putting himself in the shoes of the audience he is speaking to.

Don't forget this is not an audience of DP awaken minds, but people who have not even heard of Ron Paul. Remember Howard Stern back in 2008?

So if you watch Foxnews regularly and every night you are being brainwashed with "trustworthy" "news" (read "propaganda"), and once every two weeks they mention Ron Paul who "can never win" and is called all kinds of names and labels. What would you think when the son of Ron comes on and says "Yes, Ron Paul has a good chance of winning."

I think that Rand is doing the right thing. I don't have an explanation of his awkward friendship with Hannity, but that's fine as long as the bridges remain in tact.
