Hannity / Politico: Rand Paul Endorses Mitt Romney

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

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.”

Romney's father had a rat for

Romney's father had a rat for a son just like Ron Paul did. What a shame.

My thoughts....

First of all, my husband and I have been strong RP supporters since '07. A few months back my husband said he thinks Romney will ask Rand to be VP. I said "no way. Rand would never accept that. It will never happen." But as time went on and it sunk in that strategically it would make sense for Romney to choose him, I actually started getting used to the idea of it and to be honest, I would likely vote for a Romney/Paul ticket because I think having Rand as VP would be better than 4 more years of Obama. Anyone else and I would have to vote for Johnson. I'm sure this will be received negatively here but I've seen this coming for a while now.

I want nothing more than to have Ron Paul as our president, but if it can't happen, this may be the best chance we have at turning things around in this country.

ETA: I expect Romney to ask Rand to be his running mate. That doesn't mean it will happen,I just won't be shocked if it does.

for the record i voted this up but it created a negative point

i voted the other arrogant comments below down but it gave it a positive point. I swear. unless to people did the exact opposite of me all three times in a row at the exact time. I think the Daily Paul has some voting fraud of its own going on. lol just kiddin, but there is a glich

I agree with you but by only small amount vs against it.55%agree

I figure this is setting us up for betting chances and inroads in the future and maybe he can run for president in 2016. We can't win this impossible battle against the GOP, we must continue fighting but stop working against them and start making them think more like us and less like a bunch of pricks with no morals. Then again I also feel so betrayed and will vote against romney in the fall so we can have a real republican run at the office. I mean what has Joe Biden done while VP? nothing, what did Cheney do? what did Clinton's VP do? I can't even remember who that was. VPs are forgotten and dismissed after their last debate against the incumbent VP in the fall. Then its like they go into hibernation. I want the Paul family to have more credit than this and a much bigger impact. Its hard to settle for less. Can we really trust Romney, really?

Vote down on the idea only

I voted you back up only because I think the down votes only express what people will actually thing about the Romney/Rand ticket. There's to way in hell it will fly with RP Supporters.

We are already unplugged and there is not trickery that can fool us.

Rombama is total fail no matter what. For now I can say that

Silver Bullion Vs. Worthless Dollar
is like
Ron Paul Vs. Rand Paul

Johnson/Gray is a way better ticket

than Romney/Paul. VPs can't do crap.

Told you Rand Paul Sympathizers

Again and again Rand Paul is nothing but a POS. FK Rand Paul.

No. FK you.

No. FK you.



i'm appalled.

i don't even know what to think.


i'm so sad.

i thought....

oh well...


His reasoning will be that he

His reasoning will be that he wants to try change the GOP from the inside by becoming a darling of the pundits. Maybe this is good long-term thinking and Rand has true intentions. I, however, think he is more concerned about being a bigwig than he is about leading a liberty movement. Time will tell.

i've got a belly full

of good intentions. that's what got us where we are. And as far as long term goes. There is no such thing. do you really think there is going to be anything worth fighting for in 2016? I guess they may let us hold our "Judge N" signs over in the far side of the parking lot in the proscribed free Speech Zone. Good Luck!!!


ever going to change for the good. And getting all pissy and trashing the place won't help either, so, I guess, just take your lumps.....I'm heartbroken too, but mostly just sick of it all.....Fudge it!


@#$&^! the hell, as he learned nothing from his father. This is similar to him vote for that one measure about Iran only to say he only voted for it to gain favor with the PTB.

Well, that total BS and I can't believe he's actually going to play by their rules. They will spit him out and step on him first chance they get as soon as he tries to be true to the real people's movement of liberty.

I am so ashamed of this move by junior Paul. now?

Anyone who supports war criminality I WILL FIGHT AGAINST THEM!

What a traitor... F**k you Rand


Vote him out Kentucky!


When is he up for re

When is he up for re election? I hope he gets his ass handed to him.

I will contribute too!

Quisling needs to learn who his friends were. Past tense.



That so pisses me off that I will vote OBAMA just so I can be sure to vote for Napolitano/2016


PS... YES Sean Hanity, this country CAN survive 4 more years of Obama, what it cannot survive is 8 years of OBAMA which is what a President Romney would give us. Sorry, fooled no more by your partisan BS. Not a dimes worth of difference between Obama and Romney OTHER THAN one is out in 4 years.

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

Vote for Obama. We can survive Obama, and will grow the movement, without that Quisling Rand.

We can't survive that pos Mittens.

I agree with the first part,

I agree with the first part, but voting for our favorite 'benevolent' dictator (out of spite no less) when you could vote for Gary Johnson seems a little unproductive.


Is this for real? And he announces this on Hannity?





It's final. Rand Paul is now striped of his libertarian status.

reedr3v's picture

He told us from the start that he's not a

libertarian. He has proven to be one of the better GOP conservatives, but he's obviously a compromiser, as Kucinich was in the Democratic party. They will use him and dispose of him when it suits them. Too bad, he could have built a strong future with us, had he consistently shared our principles.

Kucinich has more integrity

Kucinich has more integrity in his little finger than Rand does in his whole body.

He also endorsed...

His father earlier. I think he's trying to play the game and help his own chances in the future within the Republican party.

So you're giving him a pass?

I don't recall his father ever endorsing anyone to further his status in a party. It's called principle. Get some.
