You only listen to the words you want to hear.
I sat through the Rand speech in person at the RNC.
First time I ever watched a PAUL read from a teleprompter. It was disgusting. But as you say they were just words.
Words which could change nothing. Rand knew this as well. If he had deviated from the teleprompter they would have shut off his mic and blamed him in full for the impending loss of yesterday.
Rand instead played their game better than they did, knowing he had no influence one way or the other to get Romney elected. And he still criticized Romney after that speech.
Cut him some slack and pray that he pardons you and you non-corporate business from filing income tax and withholding when he begins his term in January of 2017.
Rand's actions in the US senate, actions where his vote could actually change the outcome or result... that is all that matters.
You are right, words don't matter.
