Rand Paul: I will vote for Chris Christie if he is GOP nominee


Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky says he would vote for Chris Christie should the outspoken New Jersey governor win the 2016 Republican nomination for president.

"I've always been a Republican, supported the Republican nominee, and don't plan on changing it anytime soon," Paul told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV when asked if he would back Christie.

"Yeah. Take it exactly how I said it. I've always supported the Republican nominee and don't plan on doing otherwise."


I'm only posting this so certain people don't flip out if he endorses him in 2016 when he said he would three years earlier.

(Kinda like they did when Rand endorsed Romney and he had said he would support whoever the nominee was.)

Not crazy like his old man.

Keeping one toe in the main stream is how he will keep from seeming too radical in 2016.

There is no duration defined in the Oath

If he has a decent pick for vice president,

tell me that again and I might vote for Chris Christie, too.

Defend Liberty!

According to the

logic here, Ron Paul backs that neocon piece of garbage Rand so we should abandon both of them and condemn Ron for putting family or party ahead of his principle. What a sellout!

nobody is perfect

and what father is not going to try and support his son?

there may come a time though when he simply stops commenting. rand might even approve. it's a sticky situation.

It's called politics and it's messy

Rand Paul wouldn't have made it even into the Senate without playing ball with some unsavory people. Many have pointed out that Ron Paul has endorsed some neoconish people through the years for tactical reasons.

The main tactic here is obvious. Will Christie support Rand if he is the nominee?

I suppose he should since he is a republican. My guess is he would be cast out as a traitor and then his chances of running for POTUS in 2020 would be zilch. Donchya just love politics?

FYI...what context was this question asked. Isn't it obvious he was cornered? They want to catch him in a slip up.

It's ok Dr Paul, we'll support you no matter what. Just say and do whatever you gotta do to win my friend. That's all that matters in the end.

Who's this we

You got a turd in your pocket?

Just in case it wasn't clear,

Just in case it wasn't clear, I was being sarcastic. I'm willing to let Rand slide on a few issues here and there but after reiterating his support for waging economic terrorism on Iran over patent lies, Rand Paul can kiss my ass.

My comment was supposed to mock all the Obamanoid-like Rand supporters that clutter this site up with their stupid DNA loyalty.

That sounds like quite a few

That sounds like quite a few posters on here.....

Why is it that according to

Why is it that according to some of you when Rand throws out all principles it is somehow some brilliant trojan move?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

maybe because a lot of what you call "throwing out

principle", to some of us, seems like mere political rhetoric (?)...

No matter what he says some embittered soul immediately claims Rand has sold out, sullied his dad's legacy and attempted to hijack the liberty movement.

The flip side of that

is the crowd who goes on and on about how Rand is "tricking" the GOP. How could this trick work when it's constantly talked about on the internet? More to the point; it's all based on speculation, not evidence.

And of course there's the "chess game" go-to justification turned mantra.

I don't pretend to know what's he 'really' doing, so I can only judge him on his words and actions. I like him better than most of his peers, but that's not exactly high praise.

I don't think he's trying to hijack anything, I think people in both the 'pro' and 'anti' Rand camps are seeing what they want to see.

A signature used to be here!

boy, don't I know it!

they need a leader

without one they wouldn't know what to do, so they excuse everything and anything.

It's not.. It's just a way to

It's not.. It's just a way to get what he wants out of the GOP while tricking the people to vote for him << That's the "political chess game" people are so scared to admit exist.

He plays the Statist to honor his bosses wishes and then runs to the liberty crowd to tell us that he stands on the side of liberty LOL. Please... I have no respect for Rand at all. He's a tool like the rest, period. End of story.

So his support for WAR sanctions

against Iran was just a clever ploy?


So we achieve liberty by "tricking" people into voting for Rand through Rand pretending not to have principle, then when he wins, we'll just force liberty on everyone that understands both it about it?

Sounds like a plan!

Is that what you're hoping

Is that what you're hoping for? Lol

Let me ask you pro-Rand 'do whatever you want as long as you win' lot a question, how do you know he isn't tricking you all instead of tptb??

Principles have nothing to do

Principles have nothing to do with it. One hand washes the other.

another way of saying it

is 'play along to get along' something ron called santorum out on
at the debates. a brilliant moment as i remember. rick couldn't deny it he just put on one of his shitty smiles.

Rand Paul: I will vote for Chris Christie is he is GOP nominee

Yet another brilliant political stroke by Rand Paul. This should isolate Chris Christie/"The King of Bacon" even more.

I'd suck Chelsea Manning's

I'd suck Chelsea Manning's dick long before I'd cast a vote for CC, but that's just me.

I wish

Rand had said that.

you would go queer over CC?

You actually think Hillary is worth sucking a limp dick with a wig? Wait, that was redunant.. Hillary is a limp dick with a wig.
