What could the reasons behind this be?
I think it has something to do with Rand.
Either trying to get people off the Ron Paul horse and ride with Rand.
Or just more negative things to associate with Rand and reasons not to support him.
The media are already starting in on Rand. I posted a comment the other day telling how CNN were talking about Rubio and Rand's rebuttals to the SOTU. They showed Rand in weird poses with his mouth open, another one in a tee shirt and baseball cap and next to Rand, pictures of Rubio wearing nice suits and his TIME magazine cover.
This morning on Morning Joe, David Gregory said "Rand Paul is off in his own silo". They are trying to make him out to be the crazy wacky son of that crazy wacky Dr. who ran for president.
