Tom Woods puts Rand Paul on the spot on dad's campaign & bizarre Texas endorsementSubmitted by the_chiefe71 on Sat, 05/19/2012 - 12:33
I like Tom Woods. Unlike Alex Jones, he put Rand Paul DIRECTLY on the spot: Whether he is the political pawn causing mess for father's campaign & questions being raised of "Romney endorsement" distraction. Rand gives a wishy-washy answer. I'm not very pleased with it personally.
Tom Woods put him on the spot about some very questionable Ted Cruz endorsement in Texas by both him & father. (Sorry, but I'm not in Texas and don't have too much background detail on this issue.) Rand Paul gives some "electability" answer. Tom Woods puts him on the spot again, indicating he isn't really happy with a garbage answer & where is the political spine?
All in all, sounds like this Rand Paul guy is just a political compromiser - nowhere in the same league as his father. I've known this very well for past few months since his Iran sanctions vote. I'm wondering as his father gets old, these political machinations of compromising son are impacting the father. Even if his father is 76 (or 77, whatever) years old, he should stand his ground firm. Otherwise, what's the use? If & when he gets elected President, this Rand Paul compromise issue could still keep hanging over his head. Especially, considering towards the end of his term he would be 80 years old or older. The Ted Cruz issue might just be the beginning. Rand Paul may end up compromising significant chunk of his father's presidency for his selfish political motivations.
I hope there was a way grassroots could contact Rand Paul & ask him to grow a spine or back off. Our country's (& whole world's) future is at stake.
P.S. I sat back & thought more about it after I wrote all of above. In hindsight, I've come to the conclusion that more than Jesse Benton - Rand Paul is bigger Achilles' heel for the campaign. It's still not too late & we're doing quite well with delegate numbers. I call for the Rand Paul compromise issue brought out in the open HEAD-ON & finished once & for all. Let Rand Paul know that he will NOT have any of our support if he makes even small attempts to taint his great father's legacy.
