Rand Paul ‘happy’ to back Romney

In a shocking turn of events, the GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul was let down by his own son. Rand Paul was on Fox News Thursday evening to announce he was formally backing Mitt Romney on his quest to the White House. This comes as blow to many Ron Paul supporters, but is the Kentucky senator’s move a smart one? Jack Hunter, official blogger for Ron Paul 2012, joins us with more.

Abby is so beautiful but the guy she is talking to is kinda delusional!!!

I don't think most of you were listening to the content that Jack was portraying. He is simply clarifying the difference between Rand endorsing Romney, and subjectively as well as objectively disagreeing with Romney. It is just a strategic move. Rand is not selling out to the GOP, nor does the GOP have anything to do with what Rand is overall trying to accomplish. Rand may be co-opting into the GOP party, however is not sacrificing Principles for Politics, rather Politics for Principles.

@darell6776 BTW it is moronic to believe just because Abby is Gorgeous, that her opinions are to be held at a higher regard. Think with your big head not your little head.

Ah yes, squirm Jack, squirm. Nicely done, Abby! I don't know what "endorsing" a candidate means in Mr. Hunter's world, but to me, it means you support that candidate and stand behind them and their ideas. If you do that when your owns principles don't agree with that person's, then you're compromising your principles. And that's just not something I can respect.

@beccalulu if you are going to boil Rand's decision down to the word 'endorse' open your mind and look at the big picture. WHO voted against NDAA, WHO voted against CISPA, WHO voted against SOPA and PIPA. ACTIONS speak LOUDER then WORDS! We evidently need him to expand the Libertarian Liberal movement and open us up to the mainstream audience. Everybody is being hypnotized by an oblong box in the corner of the room. We need to infiltrate and be diplomatic, which ultimately Rand is doing.

Yep. We got sold out for a couple of nickels and a tin pot. Jack Hunter is a Karl Rove spnmeister wannabe. Disgusting.

Rand Paul is trying to be one of the boys so he can be nominated, unlike his dad.

I would rather have obama than Romeny. Anything is better than a republican.

People need to understand Rand Paul his own man. I wouldn't support him like his dad, but I'm ok with him being his own man. I bet his dad is ok with it to. If i had a son, i want him to his own man.

Wow, great RT anchor. Throwing some hard punches. Should get her to interview Rand Paul himself.

Good interview. Jack is cool.

doesn't matter. People elected Rand Paul because of a stand for freedom. Backing Romney means someone else who stands for freedom will take Rand Paul's place next election.

FYI, Ron Paul is not Rand Paul… Rand never was a libertarian.

Why is this being flagged as spam? You FAKE ASS libertarians should DEBATE this and prove it wrong – if you can.

It his his job to proof his claims to be true, not our job to proove him wrong.

Jack Hunter is lying about the nomination process, and so is Rand.

Edward Gao

you guys dissing Rand Paul dont get it. His endorsement is a POLITICAL MANIPULATION! he is manipulating the GOP; in what other possible way would he get the nomination in 2016? If elections were fair Rand would NEVER have endorsed Romney. Rand Paul is pissed off at the election fraud happening everywhere, and he wants to change things as fast as possible. Making this 'fake' endorsement, playing the GOP, and getting the 2016 nomination is the QUICKEST way to change things..

I love Abby Martin. I think Jack romanticizes Rands differences from his father a bit too much. It IS a big deal to endorse a man who's positions are as flip floppy and corporatist as Romneys. An endorsement means you are backing a someones positions. A disappointment, he would have fared better by not endorsing him, or endorsing his father even though their not exactly the same. Better than endorsing that warmonger corporate shill Romney who's positions are much further from his own than Ron's.

Maybe you've got a point. I've been a Ron Paul supporter for years and I've been a Rand Paul supporter from since he announced his candidacy for the 2010 elections. I don't believe for one minute that Rand is a "sell out here" and I agree with Jack Hunter 110% here. Like what he has done or not Rand is to the future of the Liberty movement what his dad is and was to the past and Rand was in a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation with his endorsement. He still has my support 110%.

Great interview and I loved seeing her hold Jack to the fire. Rand Paul should come out of this with a black eye because it is selling out.

I'm still voting for Rand. If you don't for him, it's your loss. Good luck finding another candidate with a great chance to become president.

You can't believe Rand Paul being not a crook. Announcing you endorse ROMNEY on the HANNITY SHOW is below the level of the sewers. Having such a nice father and being such an idiot son…

Rand Paul is the undercover Ron Paul! Rand paul is just playing by their rules, hes doing Liberty in a clever way.

she was a pretty annoying interviewer. good she pressed with the questions but he definitely answered them adequately then she just kept playing stupid and repeating herself "well i mean, come on" "i mean, i mean i mean i mean" like we heard you, he answered you, you didnt get the response you wanted, move on. She started using O'Reilly techniques. You can't simply say oh he endorsed Romney- forget EVERYTHING he's ever done he's now a Romney clone. No, its a political move and nothing more.

ronniepage
Guest

And don't forget that even though the way Ron Paul conducted himself was truly noble and inspirational, Rand Paul is, and arguable must, try a different tactic. He needs to play it differently. Regardless of anyone's opinions on this, I'd be hard pressed that if Rand Paul runs in 2016, all the Ron Paul supporters didn't vote for him.

Romney will not win will if he is the candidate for the GOP.  People in this country have  short term memory loss but his statement wasnt that long ago and I'm sure it will be replayed if he's the conservatives choice.
