    Romney and Paul Forging a Friendship

    Once there was a challenge of a softball game from the Ron Paul clan to the Mitt Romney clan. “They didn’t show up,” Mr. Paul says. “We didn’t schedule it. We really razz them about that, ‘You guys chickened out!’ ”

    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. When Mr. Romney arrived later, he offered his jet to take them home to Texas. Mr. Paul, not wanting to impose, was grateful but declined both offers.

    In a Republican presidential contest known for its angry rivalries, the Romney-Paul relationship stands out for its behind-the-scenes civility. It is a friendship that, by Mr. Paul’s telling, Mr. Romney has worked to cultivate. The question is whether it is also one that could pay dividends for Mr. Romney as he faces yet more setbacks in his struggle to capture the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination.

    This actually raises my respect for Romney quite a bit. I never thought he was a bad person but it's cool that he and Paul seem to have hit it off.

    politics does make strange bedfellows for sure.

    just think about this for a minute, Paul is probably the most fiscal conservative out there and romney is perhaps the most liberal and they are getting together?? hmmmm strange to say the least
    The eastern world, it is exploding, violence flaring bullets loading. you are old enough to kill , but not for voting, this whole crazy world is just to frustrating, and you tell me over and over and over again my friend, you don't believe we are on the EVE of DESTRUCTION.


    Never approach a bull from the front, A horse from behind, or a fool from any direction.

    Bodes well too.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Romney at the top of the ticket with Paul as his VP. It would be a winner. And I don't like Romney one bit.

    Agreed. I'd be somewhat inspired to vote for that ticket.

    I'd vote for any ticket with Paul on it in a heartbeat. Well, maybe not Obama + Paul. Probably not that one.
