His reasons for running are somewhat irrelevant.

What I want to know is what he will do after elected and that depends upon his backbone and his principles. Rand Paul either lacks the backbone or he lacks the principles --

First they say that they are reaching out to Sarah Palin, then the bit about Gitmo, the detainees, and Afghanistan.

Seems like a pattern to me.

Some one said that Rand Paul's campaign people were responsible for the statement and it doesnt represent Rand Paul's ideology. That dog doesnt hunt. It's almost worse to find him incompetent in leading his own outfit than to see that he is simply part of the neocon mainstream.
