Santorum claims two are in cahoots, Rand Paul would be “honored” to be VP pickPaul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.comThursday, February 23, 2012The suggestion that Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are in cahoots because Paul is in the frame to be Romney’s VP pick has again surfaced following last night’s Republican debate in Mesa, Arizona, after which Rick Santorum claimed the two were coordinating attacks against his candidacy.

Has Ron Paul Formed a Political Alliance With Mitt Romney? 773565“You have to ask Congressman Paul and Governor Romney what they’ve got going together,” Santorum told reporters. “Their commercials look a lot alike and so do their attacks.”Santorum’s campaign strategist John Brabender repeated the charge, stating, “Clearly there’s a tag team strategy between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.

However, others might suggest that Ron Paul maneuvering himself into a position where he will be one step away from the office of President in a potential Romney administration merely represents a smart political ploy, a way of beating the establishment at their own game. After all, Rand Paul’s successful Senatorial campaign, after which he has proven his stripes as a champion of liberty, was achieved partly by pandering to establishment Republican rhetoric on a limited number of issues such as the Iranian nuclear issue.

When reporters asked Rand Paul, a Tea Party favorite, what his response would be if Romney approached him with the offer of VP, he hardly poured cold water on the idea.“I don’t know if I can answer that question, but I can say it would be an honor to be considered,” said Senator Paul.For their part, the Romney campaign has completely…..
