  •  Rand Paul as VP wouldn't fly (4+ / 0-)

    Ron Paul would squander his whole reputation for not wheeling-dealing, and for what? He knows Romney/anyone can't win in 2012.  And Romney wouldn't go for it, because whatever Rand's faults, he wants to cut defense and get the hell out of Afghanistan.

    But nobody's buying flowers from the flower lady.

    •  Why wouldn't Romney agree to cut defense (0+ / 0-)

      and get out of Afghanistan, if that's what it would take to get the nomination?  Isn't politics the art of compromise?  I thought economics was what Romney really cared about.

      The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

      •  He can't because that's his only red-meat... (0+ / 0-)

        ...issue.  Without being a warmonger he has absolutely nothing to get the middle-aged-and-up White male vote.
