Rand Paul Makes a Muddle

By Roger Simon

Let some candidates seek the middle. Rand Paul is comfortable in the muddle.

Some have said the junior senator from Kentucky is the most “intriguing” of the possible Republican presidential candidates for 2016.

But if he is the most intriguing, it is not because he is the most interesting. It is because it’s so hard to figure out just what he is saying.

Read the rest here.

RW Note: This Simon piece is very important, it identifies the key difference between Rand and his father. Ron Paul ran for office to speak truth about liberty, he did not hedge his positions. He did not run just to become president. Rand, on the other-hand, wants to be president. Thus he is not focused on delivering a message about liberty, but rather is focused at the muddle, so that he doesn't offend any potential voter.

  1. Rand Paul is the best hope we have to end the NSA spying and End the Fed. He clearly adopted a lot of his father's ideas and he takes strong actions to let the liberty people know he is fighting for them. Let's give him a break and let him win as many people to our ideas as possible. This is a hedge we can make for our country. Nobody's perfect.
