When Mr. Paul’s campaign jet broke down last year in Wolfeboro, N.H., Mr. Romney’s wife, Ann, offered to let Mr. Paul, an aide and one of his granddaughters stay the night at their summer home on Lake Winnipesaukee.

Warning to all hoping for a brokered convention:

If Romney + Paul = 1,144 delegates, Romney will add Rand to the VP ticket to secure the support of Paul’s delegates.

The fix is in with these two. You’ve been warned.

I think that Santorum, Romney, and Paul are all reasonable men in each other’s eyes, who can deal with each other.

Paul looks like he shaved real close so he could get smooched on the cheek by Mitt.

Lake Winnepesaukee? Great... now I have the image of Romney strutting around in a “Don’t Hassle Me, I’m Local” t-shirt.

I don’t see what is so scandalous about this. You can disagree with someone without being a dick. Another pointless thread.
