Rand's Romney endorsement makes sense now...Brilliant if you ask me.Submitted by gizzy on Wed, 11/07/2012 - 21:42
So, we were all confused with Rand's endorsement of Romney & we all were pissed. Some of us got over it, but most of us have held a grudge & swore Rand is a traitor...but it dawned on me today. Rand's move was pure genius.
First, I see no scenario in which Rand would "endorse" Romney without the okay from Ron. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and Rand has always stood beside his father politically. He's not going to leave his side to buddy up with Mitt Romney of all people.
Second, who are we to say this wasn't a plan that Ron & Rand came up with together? "CRAZY TALK" you say? well...not really. See, Rand's endorsement allowed him to do something he could not have done if he refused to endorse Romney. Rand was able to criticize Romney in the public due to his endorsement. Every issue that Rand didn't agree with Romney on he spoke out & made it known that he did not agree with him. Essentially, Rand's "endorsement" allowed him to beat up on Mitt in public, while still appearing to be "one of them" to the republicans. You can criticize if you want...but that's a brilliant move. Hell, it might have even helped Mitt lose votes.
Perhaps the Paul's said "oh, you want to threaten us...okay buddy, here ya go..." and expertly planted the seed of doubt in voters heads. Perhaps the good 'ol "keep your enemies closer" adage came into play here? Look at all the bickering in the GOP now that Mitt lost. It's beautiful! You have the crazies like Herman Cain advocating them leaving the party...that would be the GREATEST thing that could happen for the liberty movement. It would make our take over of the GOP A TON easier. The party is in disarray & damn near ripe for the picking.
So, ya'll can sit here & say he's a traitor...but I'm starting to think maybe this dude is our BEST asset. And, you KNOW Ron is right there by his side every step of the way playing that Obi-Wan role.
Rand has officially become Luke...time to restore the Republic.
