Straight-up, let me tell you that I do not like or trust Rand Paul as I believe him to be a small time grifter like his daddy, Ron Paul. As if “talking conservative" and demanding an audit of the Fed were legitimate qualifications. As a candidate, I believe Rand Paul to be a little above Donald Trump and below Sarah Palin in the line-up for the 2016 Presidential Election.

Excerpts from the purported conversation using voice actors …
BUSH: “Hey, Hill. It’s Jeb.”
CLINTON: “Hey, Jeb. To what do I owe this pleasure?”
BUSH: “Well, it’s true — I’m thinking about running for president.”
CLINTON: “Well, Jeb, so am I.”
BUSH: “I just wanted to call and give you a heads-up in hopes we could work something out.”
CLINTON: “What do you mean, Jeb? It’s clearly my turn: Bush, Clinton, Bush. Now, Clinton.”
BUSH: “Well, Hillary, there hasn’t been a Republican White House without a Bush since 1977, and we’re ready to be back.”
CLINTON: “Let me shoot straight with you, Jeb, OK? Bill and I are dead broke and need a place to stay. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is calling me home — I’ve still got the back door key. Being president offers a lot more job security than writing another memoir.”
BUSH: “Well, the Bushes have weathered attacks before. And READ MY LIPS, Hillary: We’re not backing down this time.”
CLINTON: “Well, you’re right — maybe we can work something out. We both agree on so many issues: bigger government, Common Core, and amnesty for illegal immigrants.”
BUSH: “Well, we’ve both got problems. You’ve got problems with the grass roots, and I’ve got all those damn conservatives. What say, we make a deal?”
Bottom line …
Unless the GOP weeds out the joke candidates and prevents the candidates from decimating each other in the primary’s circular firing squad, the GOP will, once again, snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
I consider Rand Paul to be the Dennis Kucinich of the GOP.
Time for a bold platform and serious candidates. Personally, I am now leaning toward Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) for President and Governor Susanna Martinez (R-NM) for Vice President; with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) as a backup V.P. candidate. Both Walker and Martinez are exemplary candidates who are proven to beat progressives.
