    It's called politics.

    Tea Party guys already in ofice, like Rand Paul, is going to have to do a little kissing of Vinnie Vitalis's ass, if they have any chance of getting the agenda signed on to.

    I think this is a good description of Mitt Romney.

    "When the Mitt hits the fan, Paul libertarians--especially the young and idealistic--will NOT back Romney. He is, after all, a champion of everything repellent the US State does overseas and at home. He is a despicable statist, a junior oligarch, and a proponent of perpetual war, bank bailouts, torture, murder, camps, drones, the police state, redistribution, and the empire. I could go on."

    Regardless, I think this situation is being way overblown. This has absolutely no effect on my opinion of Rand Paul.

    Scary that rw voters think its okay to vote for some twit who "kisses asses" to make money and enforce an agenda that we ALL know "is deeply hostile to human liberty".

    Why is the rw so willing to vote away "human liberty???

    Then, just in case you want to throw up some more -

    It's also called not cutting off your nose to spite your face. He's a passionate guy who has had the opportunity to get up close and personal to the true workings of the political game...he made a choice to concede some of what he'd want to get some of what he hopes for, rather than take a stand that would show no results in the end.

    True that we all know these things about Mittens but for some reason, the rw's just don't see these factors as being important. Its as though they like him for being anti-liberty, anti-Constitution. They know he is and they don't mind.

    But, hey, he's not black, now is he.

    Of course we all know that these things apply equally to Barack Obama as well.

    Funny .. I just read this quote to the people I'm with and every single one of them blurted out, "Cheney".

    That's it.

    Mittens is a Jr Cheney.

    Even if he's not, he hates the US and invests his money in other countries. Why don't the rw's care about that? Because they would invest in other countries if they could.

    I really hate that.
