Ron Paul Message Diminished by Son Rand's Comments on Obama and Gay Marriage


As Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul marches on to the GOP presidential nomination by continuing to rack up delegates in both the Oklahoma and Arizona state conventions, his son, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) might become the latest roadblock on the libertarian leader’s quixotic road to the White House.

“Call me cynical, but I wasn’t sure his views on marriage could get any gayer,” said the Kentucky senator about President Obama’s recent endorsement of same sex marriage during a gathering sponsored by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, adding that “it did kind of bother me though that he [Obama] used the justification for it in a biblical reference.”

The supposedly libertarian senator continued pandering to social conservatives by stressing that “we’ve got 6,000 years of tradition” that we can’t just go ahead and give up on, warning that we have to stand together to “save the Republic” and that the traditional family unit needed to be defended.

Paul’s remarks are more in tune with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s recent comments (who endorsed traditional marriage on a Saturday appeal to evangelical voters at Liberty University) than with father Ron’s libertarian values which prompt the government to stay outside of people’s bedrooms.

Watch Romney below saying that “marriage should be between one man and one woman." Is Rand trying to audition for Mitt Romney’s 2012 VP slot?
