Skip to comments.The Deal Between Romney and Ron Paul?
Posted on 02/27/2012 6:05:33 AM PST by SeekAndFind
It is becoming increasingly obvious that an alliance has formed between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. This alliance probably has been in effect for several months, but only now has it become blatantly obvious. Paul has viciously bombarded virtually the entire Republican field via attack ads with one exception: Mitt Romney. Instead, Paul focuses like a laser on any conservative alternative who moves up the ladder.
At first, I believed this was merely a strategy to politically assassinate the Romney alternative so that Paul himself could fill the void; however, I am think there is much more going on behind the scenes than initially meets the eye. Here's my theory (and it's just that -- a theory): Mitt Romney has informed Ron Paul that he will be selecting his son, Rand Paul, as his VP should he become the nominee.
But wait, you say -- Romney is a politician's politician: he will say and do just about anything to get elected. He's flip-flopped on every major issue, accused his opponents of such outlandish things as supporting China's one-child policy, and managed to tick-off and isolate virtually all of his former competitors via his well-coordinated political Death Star smear machine (see Giuliani, Thompson). How, therefore, could Ron Paul trust Romney on this speculative promise?
Easy: Ron Paul has taken out an insurance policy. Mitt Romney has guaranteed Paul Senior that Paul Junior will be his nominee because he knows that if he stabs the Pauls in the back, Ron will simply run third party and torpedo any chance Mitt may have at the White House. This way, Ron is guaranteed that Mitt won't back down from his promise, and Mitt is guaranteed Ron won't spin-off and run as an independent.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, is beneath bishop romney.
This needs to get into the mainstream. Bump.
Mitt Romney has guaranteed Paul Senior that Paul Junior will be his nominee....
That is a disaster looking for a place to happen. I’d go Third Party for sure if that should occur.
“Public servants” my azz. They all make me want to puke. If they actually had to work in the best interests of the nation and couldn’t get rich doing it while in “public service”, you couldn’t shoehorn them in there.
Call me a PETA pusher, whatever (and I am an ardent carnivore)-you couldn’t pay me to vote for Romney just because of what he did to that dog, besides all the many other reasons. Jerk.
Mittens and Paul are disgusting — individually or together.
Of course Ron Paul denies that there is any alliance between him and Mitt.
You are absolutely correct. Nothing to see here. Move along. Would Mittens or Ron Paul lie to Americans? Heavens no. /s/
