|Another Daniel Boone wanna-be|
Every year CPAC holds a straw poll to vote for the most conservative, most Republican man they would like to see as president. Notice I say man, not individual. No woman has ever won. Now tell me that doesn't sound sexist. Anyway, this year Rand Paul won. He won the straw poll last year, too. If he wins it one more year you could say he's on a hot streak. This is not a good thing for Rand. Romney won it four times and failed in his bid for the presidency. Rand's own father, Ron, won the same poll three times and his failed campaigns were pretty much the stuff jokes are made of. If Rand does run, he will have to deal with the fact there are a lot of people out there who think of him as a word thief, thanks to his exploits in plagiarism. Every word he speaks or puts out in print is going to be checked over and over again. Most people in this country have a problem with those who steal.
Paul Ryan was the one voice which seemed to make any sense what so ever, of course he's been through the presidential campaign grind and is well aware of all the mistakes which were made. He talks about a more inclusive umbrella in which the party diversifies it's constituents. He's on the right track. Of course, he was playing to the wrong crowd. All this group wanted to do was gnaw on their bones of hate. They are killing the GOP.
