Is Romney courting Rand Paul? Report: Mitt Romney holds private meeting with Rand Paul on Wednesday
For many conservatives, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is a unique specimen. A literal scion of one of the most controversial Republican political figures in recent memory, Paul has managed to form a cordial relationship with mainstream conservatives quite a bit less problematic than the active hostility courted by his doggedly contrarian father, and in the process, has become one of the more influential Tea Party figures in Washington. His name is already floated as a potential future Presidential prospect, so much so that Paul has had to address the question at campaign events:

...

That speculation is not going to be tamped down anytime soon. In fact, it may be that even the presumptive GOP Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, sees a Presidential run in the younger Paul’s cards, if this report from National Review Online is any guide:

Sources close to Senator Rand Paul tell National Review Online that Paul and Mitt Romney had a private meeting on Wednesday. Details of the topics discussed are hazy, but Paul — the son of Texas congressman (and presidential candidate) Ron Paul — reportedly found the meeting productive.

The one-on-one conversation in the nation’s capital lasted 30 minutes. Sources say the tone was cordial but it wasn’t meant to be an exchange of pleasantries. The Kentucky Republican focused his questions on policy.[...]

...

This is quite an impressive case that Romney needs Paul – especially given the remaining fear that the elder Paul’s delegates might try to stage a coup at the Republican National Convention. An endorsement from one of the Paul family would effectively put the kibosh on that strategy, as it would send a message that the very people who are supposed to benefit from the coup don’t want it to take place. It would also cement Senator Paul’s credentials with establishment conservatives, who have made no secret of their belief that Paul supporters lack party loyalty.

I hope so. After Romney is defeated, it will set up Rand's candidacy in 2016. January 20, 2017, could be the year we take back the republic.

At this point, Mitt Romney could take Donald Duck as the VP, and he would still have a better VP than Joe Biden.

Only way I vote for Romney is...

Rand or Ron is VP. Ron is Treasurer. Or Ron is Chairman of the Fed.

I would vote Romney if Rand is VP though. Rand is no Ron and Rand does make some pretty dumb comments periodically. But Rands voting record backs him up and I also like how he can handle himself as a public speaker better than Ron.

Ron attacked monetary policy his whole career. he couched that there was nothing he could do about tax/spend, so he just loaded up pork for his district because "thats how things are done and I cant let down my constituency"

Rand went on the senate floor last week and defended the tax code for the oil companies. The oil companies dont need the tax code, but they let the politcos use them as the basis for tax code corruption in all the B.S. industries.

I hope Rand does not take the VP slot, cause Obama is going to win 2012.

Dont know what you think is B.S. Ron thinks both monetary and fiscal policy (tax code) is screwed up.

Rand only thinks monetary policy is screwed up. just so you know where I am comming from, I will be writing in Ron Paul in the general but Obama is going to win. Romney pays 20% income tax. romney pays 14%. Thats all the sheeple are going to care about. and in this case they are right.

 Quoting: Laura Bow


Because it would give our movement a national spotlight and access to the MSM.

And I know some don't like Rand because he says some pretty dumb things once in a while. But the video with him giving Romney some good marks was comparing Romney against Obama--which I agree, Romney would do better compared to Obama--it wasn't an endorsement at all. Rand would never endorse Romney when his fathers still running.

Rand knows how to come off better in the media than Ron, and is probably the most popular US Senator right now. Rand is no Ron, but his voting record speaks for itself.

Rand stands on a Libertarian and real fiscal conservatism platform. His voting record backs that up.

Rand is not okay with a humble foreign policy, so he is palatable to TPTB...he would allow our young men and women to continue to police the world.

This is where the issue with taxation comes in. As long as 51% of people do not pay for wars, they will not object to wars. There is a reason the USA is the only country in the world that can engage in total, continuous war, and it is not because our soldiers or technology are better...

a glimpse of the future:

Rand will accept VP with Romney

and Ron Paul will retire from public office
but will be hired at a TV network and do
political commentary. His words and actions
controlled by TPTB. Both Rand and Ron will
receive their monthly paychecks from
the Vatican as usual.
End of Revolution.
