Paul had a lot of potential, but he should have never made that deal with McConnell. He could have won his senate election almost as easily without McConnell’s list of banker and corporate donors, many of whom stabbed Paul in the back anyway. Blind ambition got in the way of what is best for the US, and it is a cost that we are paying for in blood and treasure.
Similarly, Ann Coulter got involved in politics here in KY and worked for McConnell to the hilt, as she worked incessantly to smear our now candidate for governor in his unsuccessful senatorial bid. She has got to be the most polemically seduced and abused/rejected female in the conservative movement, what with Chris Cristie, Jeb Bush, AND Mitch McConnell.
I will vote for Paul if he gets the nomination, but I won’t work for him at the caucuses or send any money. I’d much rather see a real conservative get the nomination.
