Why should he have waited until after the convention?

Ron himself announced he would not be the nominee around the same time Rand endorsed Romney. They both knew - have known since Iowa - there was going to be no surprise in Tampa. Rand waited until his father had built a movement strong enough to endure a public concession to Romney. If he wanted to betray his dad he could have endorsed Romney last fall when Christie did or in January when Paul Ryan did or in April when Boehner and McConnell did. To imply that Ron didn't know Rand was going to endorse - that the two of them hadn't discussed and planned the timing of this months ago - is pretty naive and also pretty insulting to Ron if he can't coordinate messaging with his own son.
