Hannity / Politico: Rand Paul Endorses Mitt Romney

http://youtu.be/3c5odNzKVbk

Politico reports:

The endorsement came in an appearance on "Hannity," a little less than 24 hours after the elder Paul acknowledged in an email that his delegate total is "not enough to win the nomination."

Romney embraced the endorsement in a press release, calling Rand Paul a "leading voice in the effort to scale back the size and reach of government and promote liberty."

Official Press Release on Mitt Romney.com

Mitt Romney today made the following statement on receiving the endorsement of Sen. Rand Paul:

“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of Rand Paul. Senator Paul has been a leading voice in the effort to scale back the size and reach of government and promote liberty. Over the past three and half years, President Obama has made government more and more of a presence in our lives, and Americans can’t afford four more years of the same failed policies. As President, I will reform the federal government and make it smaller, simpler, and smarter. I am grateful for Senator Paul’s support and look forward to working with him to get America back on the right track.”

when it comes to this guy I set and watched him make a post

and then right after he upped it 4 times when tam made a post as soon as he made the post the guy downed it 4 time actually set and watched it with my own eyes. Its more about the upping and downing not about how he feels about the endorsement why am calling him a troll many people have disagreed with Rands decision and I have not down voted them but I will down vote someone who makes multiple accounts to make their post seem more like the popular point of view. no matter who wins be it Obama or Mitt you will be glade when there is a Rand Paul in the senate to vote against it. He is not for the NDAA and someone who has been here as long as me should know that. He is not indorsing Romney to say he agrees with him. He is saying he is indorsing him to dispel the lie that most of the non-establishment (Tea Party) sheep have fallen for (that the Paul's are not really Republicans). This is how they label you a Third party or a liberal I am glad rand did not fall for this trap and it will pay off big in the future wait and see.

What are you talking about?

"We seem to have a group of Libertarian types who seem to only believe liberty is for libertarians and no one else."

True liberty is the libertarian philosophy of do what you want as long as you don't hurt anyone else directly. There is no other definition of liberty. It's called live and let live.

Democrat

And how do I fit in? I'm a registered Democrat! Who happened to also run for political office under the Libertarian ticket 30 years ago. What pigeonhole to I fit into?

but they believe everyone

should be afforded that same liberty. There seem to be some who believe the message of liberty can only be taken to people who are willing to convert to being a libertarian and if they are not willing to convert then the message cannot be taken to them.

???

What does that mean seriously? What don't you get about live and let live? Real freedom could unite everyone because people mind their own business. There is no converting going on, only the return to the free will that all of us deserve.

That might be how you feel but there are some Libertarians

that feel like it is a waist of time to take the liberty message to Democrats, or republicans, or tea party people. They feel like it is something that is for the Libertarian party only. They feel like its their idea and they own it. That is why some of them are mad at rand right now because it actually opens the door for the liberty message to be let out of the box it has been locked up in (a third party that has been purposely labeled kooky) also I believe we are seeing some progressives starting to show their true colors when anyone talks about bringing that message out of that box. This movement has all of them scared for a reason.

Apparently fmharde and nasty

Both gave money to the DP, so they could get away with more before obviously being outed as trolls. Wisdom Strategies is someone trying to pretend to be your typical Ron Paul supporter, but it also suspect for being so new to the DP.

I'm quite sure all three of these people, Fmharde, Nasty, "Wisdom" Strategies are all trolls here to cause trouble. Probably from the Romney camp, or just Obamanauts from HuffPo/DailyKoS.

It's unfortunate such a large percentage of Paul supporters are so easily mislead by them.

Really?

I invite EVERYONE to look at my postings and that they can decide.

OMG people

OMG people relax. Here's the thing. The people whom are smart enough(us) were able to open our eye and find Dr. Ron Paul. There is nothing more Rand can do for us. There still the old folks I would call them. They can't open their eyes. Rand is taking a different route to open those eyes.

That is exactly what is happening

and people are being led by mean talking trolls. The people who have not been in this movement very long are being influenced by the trolls on here.

"Randy is taking a different route to open those eyes." Really?

Yes: Rand has turned his back on his Father and The RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION which he used to get himself a Seat In The U.S. Senate only to Join The Neo-Nazi-Cons and Turn Against His Own Father And The RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION who got him where he is at now! USURPER! TRAITOR!

THE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION GOT HIM A SEAT IN THE SENATE AND THE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION CAN TAKE THAT AWAY IN THE NEXT ELECTION CYCLE!

Randy Did Not Use Me Because I Could See Through Him :)

I never gave him ONE SECOND of my time nor ONE PENNY.

(...and NEVER MIND any "minus" votes here, for those will probably be the NEO-CONS Randy has got into his pockets).

***ALL OF MY WORK SINCE 2007 - UNPAID - HAS BEEN ON BEHALF OF Dr. RON PAUL'S PRESIDENCY*** I Only Want A Happy World Without Wars ♥

I am not naive. Or at least: Not so "naive".

I knew he was simply an opportunist riding on his father's coat tails, and the Worldwide Movement Dr. Ron Paul Inspired.

ONLY TO ATTEMPT TO SELL IT FOR HIS OWN BENEFIT.

Sorry, Randy. Not Going To Work.

I would say Ron Paul is setting back watching

how people who clam to love him are talking about his son. I doubt if he feels too good about it.

Speaking as a human being with Loving Parents:

No. There is NO WAY Dr. Ron Paul could be happy about the response his BACK-STABBING JUDAS SON is getting (but Randy is a grown man who made a decision to turn his back on his father and The Ron Paul R[3]VOLUTION...You Reap What You Sow).

I love Dr. Ron Paul and have made countless sacrifices on behalf of his VISION FOR A PEACEFUL WORLD SINCE 2007 - almost every day.

WE ARE THE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION: THE GRASSROOTS.

The Unpaid Ones. THE TRUE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION.

It matters not who attempts to stand in our way:

WE ARE A WORLDWIDE BULLDOZER FOR WORLD PEACE.

Relax man

You sound like someone working inside the Dailypaul. You guys need to understand that we are also a political party in of it itself. Rand shouldn't pander to us just cause we don't like his method of waking people up. We do what we do. Let him do what he must do. We can see each other on the other side.

"back stabbing judas son"

Seriously?

I agree timmay Yeah this is not something that would come

from someone who cares about Ron Paul. The only thing that means more to a man than his son is wife and the only thing that means more to a man than his wife is his God. To call the mans son Judas shows that you do not care about Ron Paul at all.

This is not about AVATAR RON PAUL!

This is about PREVENTING WORLD WAR 3! RON PAUL OR NO RON PAUL!

RON PAUL 2012

SteveMT's picture

No one gets a free-pass. This doesn't even pass the sniff test.

I believe that Ron Paul would call this "flip-flopping" no matter who did it. If this 180 degree turn-around was done by anybody else, what would we call it? The answer is the same thing, flip-flopping.

Why?

That doesn't even make any sense considering that Rand said he would support the eventual nominee anyways. Ron doesn't have enough delegates to win, only maybe enough to hang things up.

I think what many people say about the Ron Paul movement is right, it won't be Ron, or Rand or anyone else that undoes the movement, only his own supporters.

I am personally not happy with Rand endorsing Romney, and it won't change how I vote, but the fact is if you ever listened to what Rand said you should have known this was coming.

So, there was no "flip-flopping" at all.

SteveMT's picture

Romney does not have the delegates to win the nomination.

You know that, I know that, and Rand knows that. Rand said that he would support the nominee, not the PRE-nominee. Making this endorsement before the convention is political expediency. Rand would have had plenty of time to endorse and even campaign for Romney if he wins, but only AFTER the convention.

That's right. He announced it

That's right. He announced it BEFORE the convention to sway voters to Romney from his dad. Rand's talking like Romney has this locked up, he doesn't! And, Rand knows it. Ron can still take the convention. That's why he announce BEFORE the convention. He is campaigning for Romney NOT his dad and has been all along. Could you get anymore slimey?

That's why there was all the talk of a "secret plan" to make Rand the VP. It was a secret plan, RAND'S SECRET PLAN.
