Meet Rand Paul's Future Running Mate

Rand Paul is busy making friends in powerful places.

If supporting Robomney wasn't enough... shaking hands with power brokers like Rupert Murdoch...wasn't enough...shunning Luke Rudowski wasn't enough... well you have to meet Rand's Future Running mate.

By now it should be clear that Rand Paul will do anything to win in 2016....even sell his soul to the federal reserve.

Meet George Prescott Bush

Who's that you say? It's Jeb Bush's son, Named after his Great Grandfather, Senator Prescott Bush.

Here's a photo of Rand with George P. Bush in Texas.

Grab a copy of that photo before its gone...

Whatever

This photo is neither here nor there as far as I'm concerned. What I DO find sort of comical is watching Rand on Hannity the other night, looking very nervous and trying to walk a thin line trying to take a position on the mess growing in Iraq.

He's hedged and dodged on so many fundamental foreign policy issues (i.e. support for Israel, Afghanistan withdrawal, sanctions, air strikes, etc) in order to try and remain close to the neocon/republican establishment types, but what's going on now is just too big to hedge on anymore and he's nervous. To say this is Obama's fault, as Hannity expected him to say, is to say that troops shouldn't have been withdrawn. To say it's NOT Obama's fault is to say the whole war, a war every Republican still loves, was wrong from the very beginning.

Poor Rand has to now take a position. Maybe even the RIGHT ONE… and it's gonna cost him more than if he'd just been principled from the beginning. You know, like his father.

I'll never understand why

I'll never understand why people are opposed to meeting and talking to people who disagree with them on politics. Most of my friends disagree with my politics. Most of the time its a lot more fun discussing politics with people I disagree with than people I agree with. After all it gets boring fast talking to a mirror.
I've heard people slam the Pope because he talks to sinners. Isn't spreading the good news of Christ part of the Pope's job? Isn't it part of Rand's job to spread the good news of small Constitutional government?

Quick - Save this photo before it is gone!

Ron Paul standing next to Mitt Romney, shaking his hand with a smile on his face! Guess what: they also happened to be friends! Proof that Ron Paul is part of the Illuminati!

Amid Rivalry, Friendship Blossoms on the Campaign Trail

By RICHARD A. OPPEL Jr.
Published: February 16, 2012

LAKE JACKSON, Tex. — Once there was a challenge of a softball game from the Ron Paul clan to the Mitt Romney clan. “They didn’t show up,” Mr. Paul says. “We didn’t schedule it. We really razz them about that, ‘You guys chickened out!’ ”

When Mr. Paul’s campaign jet broke down last year in Wolfeboro, N.H., Mr. Romney’s wife, Ann, offered to let Mr. Paul, an aide and one of his granddaughters stay the night at their summer home on Lake Winnipesaukee. When Mr. Romney arrived later, he offered his jet to take them home to Texas. Mr. Paul, not wanting to impose, was grateful but declined both offers.

In a Republican presidential contest known for its angry rivalries, the Romney-Paul relationship stands out for its behind-the-scenes civility. It is a friendship that, by Mr. Paul’s telling, Mr. Romney has worked to cultivate. The question is whether it is also one that could pay dividends for Mr. Romney as he faces yet more setbacks in his struggle to capture the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination.

Ideological similarities among supporters of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich suggest that if Mr. Gingrich dropped out, many of his backers would coalesce behind Mr. Santorum. But as Mr. Paul steadily collects delegates, one thing that remains to be seen is whether his affinity — at least on a personal level — for Mr. Romney could help the former Massachusetts governor as the fight drags on.

...

“He’s been all over the place on some of this stuff,” Mr. Paul said in a recent interview near his Texas home. But he seems to segregate those views from his personal feelings for Mr. Romney, whom he sees as a steady, dignified personality whose devotion to wife and family reflect his own values.

“I talk to Romney more than the rest on a friendly basis,” Mr. Paul said. ”I throw Romney’s name out because he’s made a bigger attempt to do it. The others are sort of just real flat.”

...

The candidates’ spouses, Ann Romney and Carol Paul, “know each other better than any of the other wives,” Mr. Paul said. He and Mr. Romney talk “all the time” and “we’ve met all their kids.” Once he telephoned Mr. Romney just as Mr. Romney was calling him. “Sometimes I’m never sure who issued a call,” he said.

Bush better wait in line.

There are a lot of other potential Veeps Rand is considering:

If he isn't the republican nominee, I wonder how many independents would vote rand/kucinich. USA is now 42% independent. I'm sure they could also swipe ~10% from each of the dems and reps.

Might work, although i would caution against thinking 42% independent means 42% third party. Probably more like 21% not sure whether I like Tweedle D or Tweedle R better this cycle, and 21% seriously open to voting third party. the 21% would be very optimistic, but if we could get that far, momentum might provide a tipping point and push us past it.

One thing about Ron Paul: He was gracious to basically everybody

And he gave pretty much everyone the benefit of the doubt. And that is a key part of what has won him so many hearts and so much trust.

How interesting that some of the purported follower of Ron Paul have such a hard time extending the same graciousness to his son or the son of Jeb Bush...assuming the worst at nearly every turn.

Judging children for the "sins" of their fathers and assuming nobody can be redeemed through education and honest dialogue. Is that Christian? Is that even smart?

But note I said "purported".

Bill of Rights /Amendment X: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28

I doubt it.

But it would make it easier to skip election day.

Bull.

I wonder if Prescott

has any current stock in Union Banking Corporation.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

George P Bush for Texas Land

George P Bush for Texas Land Grab. Anyone think Jr Bush supports grandpas Agenda 21.
RepuliCAN!! Good luck y'all.

Baseless

P. Bush will be on NO ONE'S radar as a running mate in '16. He's a novice, with zero political accomplishments.

Unfortunately, those ""accomplishments" have proven to be all that you need to get "elected" by the masses in the US.

Yeah, of course. You are entitled to it due to hanging out with me. Just like Barney Frank would doubtless be RON PAULS VP, since they worked on some bills together.

...says the CIA agent

Here we go again with the psy-ops infiltrators who come here to make it look like even within this camp, there is doubt about Rand. He isn't his father. So? He plays the game better and he's (by far) the best we've got in Washington. So shut up or go away. Or both.

Michael Nystrom's picture

Make it look like?

There is doubt about Rand. No need to speculate about it.

So I should shut up, or go away? Or both? Should I take the site down when I go?

He's the man.

LOL I get your tongue in cheek mockery but just to make a point

...there is no way for you to "take the site down when (you) go". The site is a monster of it's own now and the establishment daily paul (rofl) would just rebuild the ark... this time as a death star so they could take over the world buhhahahahaah and impose their will to leave everyone alone!

...ps: michael you DO KNOW that there are REAL provocateurs here

... Should we wonder if the shout out to the CIA (or other spooks) here caused a knee-jerk reaction? I'm no lover of ANY politician ...Rand included, but it wasn't a mischaracterization of the author .... or BILL3 or me. (I just happen to be a double agent)

just for saying that

yes I do think you should take the site down
if that's an option you are playing with because someone disagree's with you
your threats are ugly

Ron's proud of Rand

For you to use that quote in the context you did, and insult Rand supporters as well, is worth all the down votes you receive. Including this one.

I hate down voters

but I do love an acknowledged down vote
