Agreed...liked his speech except the 17% deal. I know he won't be able to get that going anyhow...the IRS is not going to just gracefully bowout expecially now that they are militarizing. However, I suspect Rand has clever strategy in all this because he has seemed to game the system in everything he has done so far. It is fun to watch. Right now I think he is tyring to prime the moderate Democrats to accept him because he knows he needs them more than the neocons. He's pretty clever.
