Rand is talking Political Talk

to pick up the Christian right. However right or wrong the evangelicals may be on the matter there was a pervasive issue with them believing that RP was "anti-israel" and this was a deal breaker for most of them. There is a reason the establishment pushed the idea, because they knew it would drive a wedge between the Liberty folks, and the Evangelical right. The perception of Ron as anti-Israel cost him the nomination, and I am sure Ron (and Rand) knows it. I believe Ron didn't try too hard to dispel this idea because he probably didn;t really want to (certainly never expected to) be nominated. I believe Rand does want the nomination for real, and he knows an anti-Israel label will be the issue that can deny him the nomination so he is going out of his way to cut the accusation off before it can be made.
