Rand Paul to head back to New Hampshire

(CNN) – Sen. Rand Paul returns to New Hampshire next week, making his third visit to the first-in-the-nation primary state as he prepares for a possible presidential run in 2016.

The Kentucky Republican will appear at a Manchester event on September 11 that's hosted by Generation Opportunity, a libertarian-minded advocacy group for millennials.

    If he runs for president, he can not run for reelection to the Senate. Since I doubt he will relinquish his senate seat, this is all much ado about nothing. Not to mention that he would go nowhere in the nomination process.

    This man is damaged goods, but he seems to think that the voters have forgotten about it. Conservative voters no doubt will like his self-inflicted battle scars, but more moderate and liberal voters do not. His isolationist policy alone demonstrates how out of touch he is with the global politics. Once we dropped atomic bombs on Japan, American isolationist policy went extinct.

    Is he going to go eat with brown and then run way when somebody approaches them?
    The quack and the carpetbagger together at last. Two losers together with no chance at anything,
    KY might have forgotten what a piece of cowardly slime he is but not the country.

    This coward RAN away from a young lady who wanted to discuss immigration. Can you imagine him as POTUS?

    He must be going back to show off his curly top toupee, surely not to be elected as a nominee for president.

    Hey, Rant, when do we get to take a peek at the phony ophthalmological association certificate you printed up at home and used to misrepresent yourself to patients?

    Speaking of flip-floppers Mr. Paul. Which is it? Senator or President. Kentucky law says you cannot pursue both elective positions, and polling says the good people of Kentucky don't want that law changed to let you pursue to divergent career paths.

    The Tea Party has made conservative a bad and loony word. Conservatives like this guy are hiding behind the nicer terms of "independent", "libertarian", or "isolationist". I joined a local newsgroup for libertarians, calling myself a liberal libertarian as this is what I believe. They made it clear liberals had no place there. The terms are meaningless nowadays.

    @ Tom l, your prophet has headed north? Will you follow him to the Promised Land of Objectivist Milk and Honey, with a slave wage from the Koch Brothers?

    Its a joke, Tom. Take it easy, you're getting too wound up. See this place for what it is, free speech and free comedy, and free stupidity from those who take it too seriously.

    I think if people wish to be on the ballot for more than one elected office we should let them. However, voting machines should be set up so that voters can only vote for that candidate one time, for just one office or the other. With electronic balloting machines, implementing this should not be too difficult. I believe that such change in the law could save taxpayers the costly expense of another election when the candidate wins both races, and must resign from one of them..

    Now can they can run for multiple offices at their own peril.

    Well, that crowd was libertarian in name only. If they categorically reject liberals, then they are right wing extremists who have adopted the libertarian tagline so that they can distinguish themselves from what you used to be known as mainstream Republicans.

  17. ThinkAgain: If you don't like Congress, get rid of the repub/tea bag majority

    Rant is the ONLY reason Ron Paul stayed in the race in 2012: to build name recognition.

    When are these folks going to take the big, fat HINT that their policies blow and they will never be elected POTUS?

  18. ThinkAgain: If you don't like Congress, get rid of the repub/tea bag majority

    Speaking of the Paul family, did you see the article in yesterday's Houston Chronicle?

    A federal probe into secret payments to a key Iowa supporter of Ron Paul's 2012 presidential campaign has connections to at least three long-time aides to the former Texas congressman.

    So much for "integrity" and "principles."
