Like I've said weeks ago in this thread of yours, Paul and Romney both have a good personal relationship with each other, unlike the other candidates
who don't have such a relationship with either of them or other candidates. These two men have gotten to know each better this second time around of
Presidential campaigning. It was Romney who wanted to be Paul's friend and mission accomplished, he did just that. Now does this mean Paul is going to
be Romney's VP running mate? Anything is possible, but if Paul doesn't get the GOP nomination he may run 3rd party for Prez.
It's funny, you heard it first from one of Pauls campaign people that there is no deal, yet this article claims to have insider knowledge, which of
course can't and won't be verified.
"Our most cordial relationship is probably with Romney’s people, but cordiality doesn’t imply anything other than that we are civil," Paul's
campaign manager Jesse Benton told BI. “Just because we're polite doesn't mean we're cutting deals.” Read more:
“There’s no way, because he would be working under a neo-con,” Dale Decker, a prominent grassroots organizer for Paul in Wisconsin, told BI.
“Ron Paul Nation will not vote for a Mitt Romney-Rand Paul ticket – it’s Ron Paul or None At All.” Read more:
But sources close to the campaign told Business Insider that, behind the scenes, there have been ongoing discussions between the two campaigns
that appear to include, or at least be the precursor to, an eventual deal. Read more:
And the article covers these points as well, which is true through in through,
The problem with any potential deal, of course, is that Paul's support is predicated on the candidate's unwillingness to compromise his
principles, many of which are at odds with mainstream Republican positions. Any evidence that Paul had abdicated those ideals for political expediency
would destroy both his movement and the Paul brand. “Our supporters wouldn’t let us sell out, so even if we wanted to sell out it would be
fruitless," Benton said. "If it turns out we can’t make Ron the nominee, we would have to communicate with our people to see what would be
acceptable to them." Read more: www.businessinsider.com...

If RP goes with any status quo establishment candidate he will lose most, if not all of his supporters. So again, Paul and Romney are friends, on
friendly terms but that doesn't mean Paul is going to give up on his principles and join Romney by either giving him his endorsement or being his
Paul's campaign is based on state delegates at this point, and I know the MSM has their state delegate count but they are always full of BS, so I
don't trust them at all. Ron Paul did very well in
walking away with a good
number of delegates. You know his plan is working with the recent caucus delegate fraud as of late, and most likely will see more fraud in the future.
So to rule him out based on one lame article is foolish. Anything is possible, but nothing is written in stone. So put your giggles away.
