Rush: I Predicted a Romney-Paul Tag Team

Thursday, 23 Feb 2012 01:54 PM

Rush Limbaugh predicted a “meeting of the minds” between Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Ron Paul back in January but kept it to himself. Now that there is considerable speculation it might be a reality, he says he regrets his silence.
 
Limbaugh noted during his radio show on Thursday that he wrote his friends an email last month speculating that Romney and Paul may have struck an alliance to set up either the Texas congressman or his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, for the vice-presidential slot if the former Massachusetts govenor became the GOP presidential nominee.

Limbaugh said that, in debate after debate, it was clear that the two candidates never “rip into each other.” Paul attacks everyone who happens to be the front-runner but never seems to go after Romney — and Romney never goes after Paul.

Following the Debate Wednesday night, The Daily Mail British newspaper ran a story about former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum suggesting a possible tag-team effort between his two rivals, and now Limbaugh is claiming he knew it all along.

The partnership is all speculative, but “it’s clear there’s a hands-off policy with Romney and Paul,” Limbaugh said, noting it will be interesting to see how Romney supporters would handle the possibility of a Paul vice presidency.

Rounding out his discussion on the GOP debate, Limbaugh said CNN moderator John King purposefully “avoided discussing President Obama.”

Some of the topics Limbaugh singled out as shunned in the debate included oil prices, the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal, Obama’s waivers of the No Child Left Behind Act, Obamacare, the president’s plans to reduce the nation’s nuclear arsenal by 80 percent, and — most significantly — the economy.
