What actually happens when someone gets "endorsed"?Submitted by October2007 on Fri, 06/15/2012 - 01:46
There's all this angry talk about Rand "endorsing" Mitt... But when you think about it, an endorsement is actually nothing... It's just words!
"I "endorse" Mitt Romney"... Ok so what?!?! How does that help Romney get elected? How does that make Ron Paul lose delegates?
I mean, think about it... What actually happened to Ron Paul or Mitt Romney after Rand went on TV and said what he said? What changed?
I tried to figure out what really changed and I couldn't think of anything... Nothing changed. Ron still has his delegates going to Tampa and our message is getting more and more popular by the minute.
I think many of you didn't take the time to actually think about it... You guys somehow thought that a Rand endorsement of Mitt would hurt Ron when in fact it did nothing to hurt Ron's goal of getting as many delegates as possible to Tampa.
This whole thing was really overblown. Kind of ridiculous actually.
