Rand Paul On Mitt Romney's VP Pick

Here is what Rand Paul had to say about Romney's VP pick.

"The pick of Paul Ryan solidifies the Republican ticket's commitment to taking on the pressing issues like the deficit, entitlement reform and tax reform," Sen. Paul said. "Congressman Ryan's values and commitment to fixing our fiscal mess stands in stark contrast to Vice President Biden - and presents a clear choice to the American people."

Exactly! Rand was also under

Exactly! Rand was also under obligation to sit on his hands when his help was desparately needed at the crucial state conventions in the months before his endorsement.

Maybe unlike the majority of the Senate

he took time to read the acts and bills and prepare his own?

After this next election, who will you have in office besides Rand?

I think you previously said

I think you previously said that Rand only failed to campaign for Ron at state conventions because the Senate was in session on those days. When I researched this and found out otherwise, I heard crickets from your side. Now....you seem to have a new excuse. Perhaps my memory is wrong.

As to you other issues, it is revealing that Rand could spare his valuable "time" to appear on Levin, Hannity, and Beck during weekdays but couldn't spare his valuable time to give a measly speech for his dad at state convention on the weekend!!!

I may have

I may have made a guess to what Rand was... was Rand reading senate bills?


That was a very important message to me. If you are on a committee, that was a very imporatant message. The GOP does not want us having seats. I had to DEMAND the by-laws from my chair.

Ron Paul is no longer alone and a joke. He has now amassed seats and that's why we are fighting and they are working hard to OUT us. Rand gave us a WAKER UP call.

Are you seated? That's all Ron Paul asked of you, join the GOP and get a seat.. that's how we win.

So if all you want to do is be in the stereets and attack those of us who did what Ron Paul asked us to do, you're NOT with the program, but a problem and I'm not buying your BULL.

His Dad has plenty of FANS, he needs SEATED COMMITTEE MEMBERS

So where are you????????????????????????????????

Wake up!

What a ball buster!

I feel like Rand just gave me a piano to carry.
Okay now. shouldn't the delegates have a chance to nominate their choice for VP? I'd say we hit them with Ron Paul vs. Paul Ryan! That's if Ron Paul doesn't get the nomination for prez. of course.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

Feel bad for Ron Paul

I wonder what this is like for Ron Paul.

I love some of Rand Paul's votes, but then he pulls this crap.

I will not criticize the best senator we have in Washington

I still say that our fight is against principalities and powers and I am convinced that Rand Paul is a man of integrity even if I despise and do not understand what he is doing or why he is going about it this way.

I have an idea but I do not feel like debating it with you all again today.

I just hope I am not wrong.

This man may have been our last hope save God and maybe Ron Paul.


To save God?

Seriously? My God doesn't need anybody to save Him! I think you'd better express that differently, because I can't believe that is what you meant.

Oops. Matrixing.

I was matrixing when I read that. Thanks for pointing that out, Devin.

You Aren't Alone on That

Yeah...It struck me kinda that way also.

Thank You DEVIN!

Words have great power.

They aren't easily "taken back"
many an apology has been "accepted"...but the "words" can stick in the mind...not easily forgotten...or forgiven.

They are a gauge by which others measure us.

And I doubt that there are any in this world that can lay claim to :

NEVER having MIS-Spoken....
Rand has been pushing along in the Senate and his recent AUDIT THE FED Project has been going full steam ahead.

Guess the only way to erase words regretted....
...Is by DEEDS.
Rand is working ...performing many "deeds".
Let's give him a break.

Is it even possible for Rand

Is it even possible for Rand to be any more of a tool? I hope the big boys in the GOP gave him a cookie, a pat on the back, and said that one day this corrupt fascist machine would be his.

I Don't Care What Rand Says Anymore...Ok?

For me his endorsement of Romney speaks volumns...

No offense to the Paul family,

But I'm really getting tired of watching an establishment ass-kisser.

let's hope he's a sly fox.

That's just...

...politics. It's the votes that matter, and Rand's votes won't change.


Rand did not support Romney until after Ron had stated that he would not have enough delegates to win and qualified that statement by saying his Father was still his first choice. Try to remember that after voting for Gary Johnson and giving Obama a mandate to write executive orders as he pleases and appoint four Ginsbergs to the Supreme Court. In four years, we will be much more like Chavez's Venezuela and no Republican will be able to pass legislation acceptable to the Obama Court and you will have to remind people who Gary Johnson was. I'm not enthused about Romney but purity has its price.

That's fine if..

...you can actually tell that Romney is the lesser evil. I can't tell.

Besides, the GOP must be cleansed of the neocons, and the only way to do that is to stop voting for them, period. That will allow true conservatives to take the party back.

No need to worry about the Democrats and Obama -- they always self-destruct anyway because their "solutions" are always so horrible.

And I'm concerned our Republic

will have self-destructed long before the 'cleansing' has occurred.

What is he thinking?

Sheesh. Paul Ryan is not committed in any way shape or form in deficit reduction.

When you play "Game of Thrones"

you either win or die!

Probably a lot of people who said that, but I'd still wait until the end of elections before calling out names. After that you can lynch him if you want.
Politics is a cunning game.

i get it

Rand has no Balls! he cant stick to his principles!

Ron Paul is a Republican and does not compromise! Ron Paul shows the example ...not like his wimpy son!

Spoken like a true Neocon.

What a crock.

Ron Paul ran as a Republican

Ron Paul ran as a republican, meaning he endorsed one party over the other.

Everyone should be voting this up

just on the fact that it's hysterical.

I don't like it, of course.

I don't like it, of course. However, talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words. I'm keeping an eye on his actual deeds, voting record, and wrangling within the Senate. I haven't seen much in the way of action to dislike except perhaps his stance on Guantanamo and perhaps Iran sanctions.

Rand is extremely clever. I saw this same situation when he was running for his Senate seat. He knows he needs the backing of his local T party and neocons. With them and hopefully us, he might have a chance for the Oval Office. He used the political game to get in office...no game, no office, no telling off the toilet and light bulb nazi's in Senate committee meetings...no voting against all the stuff we want Senators to vote against. Sure we can have a political purist back at the opthomologist office...lot of good that will do for us.

We need a few hundred Rands in the Senate and House. Personally, I've never fully appreciated his type of charisma and his game, but I think he is trustworthy.

Except that he's either lying

Except that he's either lying or stupid. It's probably the first, but I hate both. The reason so many people are attracted to Ron is that they are fed up with this type of party unity at all costs bullshit.

That describes every move guv perr in TX makes...anything to his benefit and personal agenda.

And YES, I agree with you rpjazzer!
