There is a huge difference between endorsing Rand Paul and Cheney endorsing Kay Bailey — you should be able to see the difference.

Palin donated to Paul but she never really endorsed. The endorsement of Kay Bailey by Cheney made no sense.

They're both RINOs. One voted for the bailout, one has collected over $390,000 from two fundraisers (one on September 23, 2009 and one on February 23, 2010) in Washington D.C. hosted by AIG and 17 bailout-supporting U.S. Senators.

Why should Kay Baily Hutchison be blamed for George W. Bush’s bailout? That was cooked up by Bush and Hank Paulson.

And I don't support a "Republican" who voted for Bill Clinton, opposes term limits, supports earmarks and takes hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of bailout money from AIG to 'bailout' his sinking campaign.

Grayson just wants to be McConnell's little lapdog.

Double-digits back. Another $260,000 raised for Paul yesterday. There ain't much "good news" going on over at team Trey. Surprised really he hasn't fired Hodson yet.

Cheney also endorsed in the Texas governor's race, and it didn't seem to do Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) any good. As with Grayson, Cheney's endorsement in that race came down later in the race, when the endorsee looked to be in some serious trouble.

Grayson has plenty of ground to make up on Rand Paul, according to recent polling. And one has to wonder why, when there's such a premium on being the anti-establishment candidate these days -- that's really what Paul has working for him -- he's rolling out an endorsement from such an establishment figure.

It's hard to see Grayson making this move if he was tied with Paul or in the lead.

“The endorsement of Kay Bailey by Cheney made no sense.”

Cheney endorsing her makes perfect sense if you imagine Cheney as a lifelong new world order type, happiest inside the GOP establishment, who’s only conservative creds come from being aggressive militarily. Cheney,, is no conservative, just another mainstream repub.

Cheney loves open borders, gay marriage, etc,, he only looks conservative when juxtaposed against Obama.

He was in college when he voted for Clinton. And frankly, if it’s a choice between him and a Paul family abomination rolling in Truther moneybombs, it’s a no-brainer.

Cheney is wrong on this but then again Cheney has never been a small government advocate in real terms. I agree with Cheney on much national defense policy but I can’t agree on him going with the big government ex-Democrat Bill Clinton supporting establishment Republican. Rand Paul supports limited government, liberty and the sovereign citizen. He is not a radical. He is what we need more of. We need people who understand the principles of liberty and will never compromise on them. He is pro-life, he supports the military, he isn’t a blame America type like his father sometimes appears to be. We need to stop being seduced back into the arms of the compassionate conservative big government Republican crowd. Paul will never betray us and even if he isn’t a “Patriot Act will save us all” type he is one vote and he will be there when a new army of Representatives fight the fight to repeal health care and cut government and restore liberty. I’m not so sure Trey Grayson or Bill Johnson will be. Bill Johnson seems to be running some kind of stealth campaign and Trey Grayson is running the stupid campaign. We need to stop electing stupid inarticulate people who can’t make the case for liberty for the sake sticking their feet in their mouth or behaving like they are ashamed of their defense there of.

Thankfully, Cheney asserts some adult supervision here. How anyone thinks that Paul, and his isolationists leanings that went extinct some 65 years ago, is good for the country, is lost on me.

So you prefer an "ex"-DEMOCRAT, who was proud to have his pic taken w/ Bill Clinton?

Besides, Dr. Rand Paul is a REPUBLICAN. What will you do IF the good Dr. wins the KY GOP nomination...will you hope that the Dim wins the general election? I know that the PaulHaters are quite vitriolic in how they feel about him.

I was hoping he was the latter, but it appears that the apple did not fall far from the tree. In fact, I think it hit every branch on the way down.

For example, Rand, like Ron, thinks Adam Kokesh is just dreamy.

RINO: Any GOP candidate who is not Ron Paul.

Small-government conservative: This only applies to Ron Paul or Ron Paul disciples such as Debra Medina or Rand Paul. Nobody else is allowed to claim this.

Big-government supporter: Anybody who does not worship Ron Paul.

People who understand and support the Constitution: This only applies to Ron Paul or Ron Paul disciples such as Debra Medina or Rand Paul. Nobody else is allowed to claim this.

As a Kentucky voter I am not buying the RINO in training Grayson’s yappings. While I am not overly thrilled with Paul I intend to vote for him in the primary. I can’t stomach another McCain republican especially when there is no reason to nominate one in the state of Kentucky.

Before you make stupid accusations like that, Paulbot, perhaps you should review my postings from that time.

I support conservatives.

Not RINOs.

Not self-serving libertarian DeceptiCons.

You are being deceived by your cult leader. That doesn't make you look very bright.

You obviously didn’t understand my reference.
There are people who:
understand what NeoCon means and supports
a free country not overrun and attacked by the enemy.

Then there are the PaulBots who think NeoCons are out to take over the world. It is their way to keep their
lemmings tied to the anti war message.

How quickly we forget

Comments like yours prove that there are far too many people in this country that still don't comprehend the lethality of our opponents, the resiliency of the organizations or their motivations for their hatred.

I hope the country can survive the struggle within, to have the courage to crush the enemy outside. Just saying.

You're completely full of BS when referring to Rep. Paul.

The Neocons aren't true conservatives. They are PROGRESSIVE in that they think that gov't should be big enough to help what they think the free markets won't. They also refute the foreign policy of the Founding Fathers & believe that its the business of the US to "spread democracy" throughout the globe, as opposed to minding our own business & remaining super-strong militarily in case someone tries to mess w/ US.

If we had the foreign policy that the Founders thought we should have, we wouldn't be trying to create a world in our own image by throwing foreign aid $ to any place that we think it's necessary (not to forget the fact that foreign aid is UNCONSTITUTIONAL). Arming the guerrillas (sp?) in Afghanistan in the 1980's to fight the commies then being surprised when they bite us in the arse on Sept. 11 is an excellent example of this.

Neocons do NOT support a free country w/ limited government & a respect for state's rights. Far from it! They are big government traitors just like the democrats, ableit for different rerasons & on different issues.

I worked for Reagan when he first ran for governor.
I know what a conservative is and Ron Paul is an anti war Neo Leftist who states Iran and North Korea are not a threat, leave them alone.
His rants on youtube against Israel sound like his his Neo Nazi friends Alex Jones and Lew Rockwell wrote them.

When the Founding Father wrote their views, the enemy took weeks in their man of war ships to come to America.

NOW

The enemy can send Nuclear missiles in 30 minutes can hit and destroy cities all over the U.S.

Good for you. Rep. Paul worked for Reagan while he was PRESIDENT:

Don't give me that "times have changed...things are different now" excuse. The principles of the Founders still hold true today, do they not? You sound just like the Progressives when you make statements like that.

But just im case the Founders werre wrong & that things need to be "modernized" for our times, then please, AMEND THE CONSTITUTION so the fedgov will have the power to be the official Policeman of the World (POTW). I'm sure you could do that quite easily, considering the foreign policy views of the DC & NY Establishment running our foreign policy. You can change our national motto to "Policemen Of The World, Unite!".

I think she gave money but I don’t remember an endorsement.

Governor Palin gave a formal endorsement for Rand Paul, as has, Concerned Women for America, Gun Owners of America, Steve Forbes and RedState.com.

Asked by "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace why she endorsed Paul, Palin said “Because he's a federalist and he wants the states to have more say and as we respect the 10th Amendment in our Constitution, he wants the states to have more say in a lot of these issues."
