Levin disagreed with Ron about war/intervention. Levin believed Ron Paul could not win and thus he was hurting Republican chances so he had to be marginalized. Some of Ron's supporters ARE over the top in terms of how they talk about anybody who supports foreign intervention as a "neocon". There is a bit of anti-semetism among a few of Ron Paul's supporters, which bothered Levin as a Jew. Finally Rand is more liberty Republican than was Ron who seemed to be trying to appeal to the libertarian base.
This is the natural popular Tea Party coalition that represents the silent majority in the country. The three public people that I would give the most credit for galvanizing the Tea Party Movement are Ron Paul, Glenn Beck, and Mark Levin.
