I think your judgement is accurate

Rand Paul is the enemy of their enemy and a rising star, so they can't support Rand for things his father taught but was called crazy for.

However, I think that Ron Paul doesn't want to take credit for the things his son does. He already said that Rand is his own person, and he wouldn't have it any other way. It would be good for the entire family for Rand to not be stuck in his father's shadow, always being compared to his father (regardless of whether that comparison is good or bad). Rand is an adult, and he's making his own decisions, and that is how it's supposed to be.
