On the ‘new’ eve of the Republican Convention, it appears all is not well in the Romney-Ryan ranks. In what is quite a stunning admission, though not entirely surprising given his outspoken desire for achange to the status quo, the NY Times [2] is reporting that Ron Paul does not fully endorse Romney for President.

Mr. Paul, said convention planners had offered him an opportunity to speak under two conditions: that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney.

Whether this is Paul playing an admirable ‘long-game’ and/or standing by his libertarian roots (or angry at his apparent marginalization) is unclear but one thing is for sure; with the dominance of ‘young’ voters (seeking ‘change’?) behind Ron Paul relative to ‘old’ voters with Romney, this rebuff will not help in the fight against TOTUS. As BigStory reports [3], Paul is telling his supporters to stand firm because “we will become the tent eventually!
