SEAN HANNITY: You're really taking on a lot of issues. One of them is outreach, the second one is the NSA, the third going after the president. Do you agree with Ted Cruz when he said Rand and I are good friends. Do you agree with that statement?
SEN. RAND PAUL: We always have been good friends. I'm not real excited about him mischaracterizing my views and, you know, I won't let that pass. I think that, you know, sometimes people want to stand up and say, 'Hey, look at me, I'm the next Ronald Reagan.' Well, almost all of us in the Republican party are big fans of Ronald Reagan. I was a 13-year-old kid when my dad was a delegate for Reagan, I was there in Kansas City. I've always been a big fan of peace through strength.
I think America should and has a responsibility around the world and really, virtually all the opinions that have been coming from Republicans are somewhat the same on this. That Putin should be condemned. He should be isolated. I favor sanctions against Putin. So, for people to characterize that as somehow not being the Reagan position, I think they need to have a re-reading of Reagan, frankly. Reagan was famous for --

I worked for President Reagan and of the two, Ted Cruz is much closer. Sorry.
Oh, Rand, how nice of you to sound like a leftist.

Rand Paul RIPS Ted Cruz: Sometimes People Think They’re The Next Ronald Reagan
I fail to see a problem.....
Actually the problem is NOT wanting to be the next Ronald Maxi-mus.. (OR better)..
Some Freepers seem to admire Rand Paul. Frankly, he resembles his crazy father more and more every day. Maybe he’s been puffing too much pot or something.
Guess this spoils the speculation of a Cruz/Paul ticket.......
Why does Rand Paul win CPAC?
It's like he's a member of the Republican wing of the Democrat party.
Better to aspire to be the next Ronald Reagan than the next Ron Paul.
(Maybe it's closet (Ditch) Mitch supporters?)
Because the Ron Paul Lunatics stuff the ballot boxes every year. If you would do your homework, you would find that Ron Paul won most CPAC polls, it was his LUNATICS stuffing the ballot boxes.
Rand and Cruz should be trying to out-do each other in ways to attack the Hildebeast. We need to send her off the cliff in her wheel chair before she can consolidate her forces and go into Beast Mode.
This tiff is entertaining
Yes, I know Ron Paul won, as does Rand Paul. I don’t know the process, but I gather there are more libertarians at the event than there are conservatives.
Because it’s 30% TEENAGERS!!
