Skip to comments.Rand Paul seeks new allies among Romney 2012 team
Posted on 04/25/2014 2:10:40 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Fighting to move beyond his fathers shadow, Sen. Rand Paul is crafting new alliances with the Republican Party establishment during a Northeast tour that began Friday in Boston.
The 51-year-old Kentucky Republican, son of libertarian hero and former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, headlined an afternoon luncheon hosted by top lieutenants of former presidential nominee Mitt Romneya private meeting that comes as Paul weighs a 2016 presidential bid of his own. To succeed in a national campaign, however, those close to Paul acknowledge that he must broaden his appeal beyond the tea party and libertarian-minded activists who rallied behind his fathers long-shot presidential runs.

I knew it. That hack was and is a Rino.
He ran as a Tea Party candidate.
He is a nut case.
Really makes me wonder if DC has a race of parasite aliens living under it that inject “keepers” into the people who come to washington to control people like puppets...
DC seems to screw everyone up....
Either that or Rand is pulling one over on the establishment.... (I know wishful thinking)
“Over the last year, Paul has stood alongside Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus in places like New Hampshire and Michigan as the national party works to mend internal divisions and strengthen its appeal among young people and minorities”
LOL when only white people showed up to his Detroit outreach event and in NH where the GOP base is pissed about Ayotte’s amnesty. He’s worried that the GOP only got 3% in Detroit.
“He also plans to appear next month at the RNC’s spring meeting in Memphis.”
Is he going to endore Lamar? Will Lamar face any political revenge for pretending Paul endorsed him.
You run a RINO in MI and they lose. You put affirmative action on the ballot and you get 58%.
One reason I’m suspicious of Rand Paul. At least Romney was honest about who he was and would probably have been no worse than another Bush.
Well he should also suck up to the McLoser camp...he would then get a whopping 25% of the nut case vote
Rand is a FOOL.
“Rand Paul To Campaign for Romney”
Remmick was creepy... but not as creepy as Harry Reid...
Paul is trying to be all things to all people.
It is becoming more difficult to know what he really stands for and what he really stands against.
He is rapidly turning into ‘just another politician’ who will say anything to get elected.
Sen Rand Paul aligned himself with Willard ???
At least Romney was honest about who he was
Conservatives will ignore the fool;
BUT Cindy Sheehan will support him, though.
Slippery, Sleazy, Dopey, Whiney, Witchy, Fairy, and Flip-flop. Rand Paul just takes another bite of the poison apple, and sinks back into his coma.
Rand Paul is showing himself to be dumber than a bag of hammers.
He’s dead, Jim.
Except for those 180's he did on guns and abortion. And I have little doubt that following Sandy Hook, a President Romney would've flip-flopped again and pushed for the same assault weapons ban he signed into law as governor of Massachusetts.
Rats are more honest than Willard Romney,
WHO HIMSELF ALONE installed gay marriage and
then lied about it,
and who pushed RomneyCARE on Massachusetts, and then
LIED about its results.
Romney is a LIAR who started the entire mess.
And Rand Paul is his newest toadie.
The (we) Gave.Obama.Power (GOP) is the enemy to the
has rand slinked back to Cliven since the unedited truth came out?
