Posted on 01/02/2012 3:57:01 PM PST by i88schwartz
Mark Levin, who was on vacation, came back with a fierce threat today. Levin promises he will do "everything in his power" to defeat Sen. Rand Paul if his father runs as a third-party candidate. "If Ron Paul decides that he is going to go third-party, which is detrimental to this nation, and pulls a million votes, which is relatively insignificant in the big scheme of things, I will do everything in my power to defeat his son in Kentucky. I will do everything in my power to defeat his son Rand Paul in Kentucky," Mark Levin said on his radio program tonight.

As if blowhard Levin has enough influence. What a joke.
“I will do everything in my power to defeat his son in Kentucky. I will do everything in my power to defeat his son Rand Paul in Kentucky,” Mark Levin said on his radio program tonight.”
You have to be careful with personal vendettas, Mr. Levin, not to take it so far that your brains fall out. Rand Paul is one of the few members of the House of Lords who is trying to whittle Washington down to size. But if “hold on now” wants to cut off his nose to spite Ron Paul, go for it if that’ll make you happy.
I am not crazy about the Republican field this year, to make an understatement. I think Paul’s positions on reducing the Federal behemoth are the best of all the candidates. But a lot of his foreign policy positions are lunacy. And I don’t trust him (or most of the other Republican candidates) on border issues.
On the other hand, Willard’s past positions indicate he loves big, instrusive, federally-mandated government. Since we’re near the tipping point on the size of the national debt, and with federal spending killing the economy, domestic policy may be more important to our long-term survival right now than foreign issues.
I would like a candidate that wants to take a meat cleaver to federal spending and also be ready to defend us against all foreign threats without decades-long occupations of other countries costing us hundreds of billions.
Bottom line: Mr. Levin might not be able to support Ron Paul under any circumstance. While Paul is far down my list of candidates (I want Bachmann), I will vote for Paul over Zero. I’m not sure I can say the same thing about Willard. I might just have to skip that contest and vote on other down-ticket races. But if Willard had a son in office who was part of the solution rather than part of the problem, I wouldn’t try to throw the son out of office in some sort of bloodguilt fashion. That, too, is lunacy.
Mark Levin should know that he can’t tell a Kentuckian what to do. They are a stubborn lot in Louisville, Lexington and environs.
The attack against Rand Paul is rediculous by Mark. It’s Ron not Rand that is the problem; infact, Rand is probably the closest thing to a conservative actually in the Senate now to begin with.
I like Mark, but he needs to have his head examined if he is wailing against Rand.
Go ahead Mark, waste your airwave time and energy trying to defeat ONE OF YOUR OWN.
Mark will fail. Rand has high marks with most Kentuckians. What a moron.
And to add to my previous comment. If Mark truly wanted to defeat a nearly useless Senator, perhaps he should put his efforts to towards the other Kentucky Senator......Mitch McConnel who is an open border flim flam who seems more than willing to cave to Dems these days.
I agree MachIV. I used to listen to Levin and get all amped up with his hyperbole, then I calmed down and actually read the Founding documents and the founders and realized the Levin is just an obnoxious jerk. Sadly, he still seems to have a fan base here at FR>
The Pauls had better REALLY pay attention to that!
Rand is a fraud, just like his old man.
Can’t tell ‘em what to do, but you can fool ‘em pretty easily. Rand’s living proof of that.
Pipe down you blow hard!!!
I wish Ron would just let Rand take his place on the current ballot. He’d have my vote right now. That said, I am with Levin here. If Ron Paul did go 3rd party, it would be devastating and guarantee an Obama 2nd term. Anyone associated with it should be shunned.
I always liked Rand Paul, but then I heard him bashing Newt as a Progressive on Fox and he said his father can get the independents. His father who believes we caused 9-11. Who believes Iran should have a nuke and many more extreme, kooky and dangerous things. If he can bash Newt, he needs to ask himself how he can support his father because I see a lot more to fear in a Ron Paul candidate myself. No wonder Mark Levin is saying what he is. I also believe Mark Levin has been hearing some rumblings behind the scenes that we have not. He said a few weeks ago that he will trash ANYONE who goes third party. I have heard a certain pundant saying they would vote Ron Paul 3rd party over Newt. Hmmmmmmmmm
So who isn't a "fraud" to your way of thinking? Is William Rawle (A View of the Constitution of the United States -1829) a fraud too? The whole NBC thing is hardly as clear cut as some would like to think.
It is quite clear (to me anyway) that the Birth Certificate images released by Obama are fraudulent but radio guys like Levin and Rush may not always be able to speak freely on every topic. (Rush was almost destroyed for briefly speaking freely about Vince Foster, and resorts to innuendo now about such dangerous topics.)
Thanks for that bit of info. A loud bell went off in my head when he trashed Newt on tv a few weeks ago and said to vote for his kook father on Fox. I am aware it is his Dad but a true tea party person would not support such extreme views such as what Ron Paul has. You only confirm what I thought when I heard him.
Can u say Pat Dewine Redue.
I am sure most posters here remember Mike Dewine’s, a senator from Ohio son, Pat ran for a House seat. All the
GOP establishment supported Pat for the seat. And Pat had
5x the money any other candidate had.
The only problem was Mike, his father, was part of the 14
Gangsters that clogged up the senate, during the short senate
majority the GOP held.
Due to the liberal sins of Mike Dewine, Pat came in 4th
place in the GOP Primary. I suggest Rand Paul have a talk
with his father.
Progressives are pro-big government. Newt contributed to the growth of big government. Therefore, it’s fair to call Newt a progressive.
The real problem is this, there are almost as many big government so-called “conservatives” as there are big government “liberals.” Conservatives just want their type of big government. Remember Medicare Part D (Santorum voted for it, Newt lobbied for it, undoubtedly, Mitt would have supported it). That extra-constitutional legislation was passed by a republican House, Senate and signed by a republican president. Hmmm...exactly where in the Constitution does Congress or the president find the authority to pass Medicare Part D? Crickets.
Every one of the candidates including Obama will raise their hand to uphold and defend the Constitution and then immediately violate it with their policies they’re promoting. And you trust these people? Hmmm, how strange.
Didn’t know TGO was live tonight.
When did Ron Paul say he has ruled it out? When has he categorically denied he would ever do it? Right now there are enough people stroking his ego and eccentricity to get him to do just about anything.
As for Trump, he has always been Obama’s card to play. Trump is a tool.
Your right Levin is powerless, but for what it’s worth he use his mic to oppose the Pauls if pappy goes rogue.
