Rand is not a rookie, he is an experienced surgeon and MD.

There was no mistake in what he did.

Sure it was distasteful for "pure Libertarians", but it was also an important strategic move that had little to no influence on the outcome of his fathers campaign; neither did it help Romney.

I was there in Tampa and present for Rand's RNC speech. It was not Rand Paul speaking, it was Rand reading pre-approved language from a teleprompter, language prepared by the Romney camp.

It was a joke! A complete joke. But it was also perfectly strategic, because though it did nothing to help Romney win in November, this endorsement by Rand in front of establishment RNC delegates has elevated this movement within the national Republican establishment such that we will convert many more NeoCons over the next 4 years.
