    Nashua, New Hampshire - Rand began his attack during the Cleveland debate, questioning Trump's political affiliation, his treatment of women, and whether he's hedging his bets on the outcome of the nomination process.

    But some have called those allegations hypocritical. In case you haven't paid much attention to Republican politics, Rand is a known flip-flopper, who's held three different positions on illegal immigration, and has often been criticized for hedging his bets on the issues - his ability to hedge his bets is underscored by the fact that his is also running for both President, and Sentator.

    Rand Paul himself was ostracized by Fox News' Megyn Kelly following his harsh treatment of female reporters. While his father, Ron Paul, was painfully labeled as a "Fake Republican", a label that Rand tried to stick to Donald Trump simply because he had to be friends with powerful people in Washington to operate his many businesses. So it's no wonder that other candidates see these latest attacks as the death throes of a dying campaign.

    And the vultures have already started circling.

    Ted Cruz is openly appealing to Rand Paul's voters in anticipation of his campaign's upcoming demise. Last Sunday he called for an end to the government's block collection of telephone meta-data, and argued for more regulation against The Fed.

    Meanwhile, kiddie-table candidate, Carly Fiorina has resumed Rand's battle against Mr. Trump - but despite these attacks, Trump has praised Mrs. Fiorina for delivering a very good debate performance. He also called Rand Paul the biggest loser.

    That very well may be true.

    On August 22nd Kentucky lawmakers will rule whether Rand can continue his campaign. The issue revolves around the increased cost of the election process that allows him to keep his Senate seat, $500,000. The Paul campaign has promised that they will pay for it all. But Rand may have a change of heart, as his contributions have all but dried up. Plus, the Kentucky Congress isn't so apt to make deals with him, given the Kent Sorenson bribery mess in Iowa that has now embarrassed the Kentucky GOP.

    "Mr. Paul was the first one to enter the race," one pundit said, "yet it appears he will be the first to exit."

    Shamefully, Rand Paul, who was lionized as "the most interesting man in politics" in a Time magazine cover story last year, was supposed to reinvent the Republican Party with his message of free-market libertarianism, his vision of a restrained foreign policy and his outreach to minorities.

    What went wrong? Pundits postulate that Rand Paul could never stray too far from the Ron Paul ideas that got him elected, but he couldn't embrace them and make it through the Republican primaries. He ended up with a mishmash - betraying both, and embodying neither.

    Rand Paul is seriously a joke. I used to think he had potential, but he seems like such a phony now, even more than the other politicians

    Even Rand Paul's hair is running away from his campaign.

    He went from being a Tea Party hero to being a clown. All over night. His buddy Cruz is in the same boat.

    cruz is moving up in the polls. he's got a smart strategy of not attacking trump. he also did well in the debate.

    rand showed up to the debate strung out on meth and made a fool of himself. even on topics he was right about, he was yelling like a mad man.

    rand is collapsing quickly. half of his campaign was just recently indicted too

    um, i don't want to bring you down, but the democrat front-runner is currently being investigated by the fbi :jj:

    influential democrats are trying to get al gore to come into the race.

    joey biden is thinking of jumping in because hillary is so damaged.

    there's a good chance that hillary will not even make it to super tuesday

    Background noise, it's no where near as entertaining as watching the right rip each other apart. They are doing without the help of the left.

    hillary went from the presumptive nominee - and president - to possibly dropping out of the race and even facing indictment.

    watching trump is obviously the greatest political entertainment since the duel faded out, but hillary's problems are way bigger than a couple of flailing campaigns- like rand's - attacking the front-runner

    Oh I am very entertained. The big question is, when Trump is out, who will be left?

    Do you think Trump has the power to win the office as a independent? We all know that the Republican party will not have him as their runner.

    it's early and they're already going at him this hard. they recognize what a threat he is.

    and once they've started to go after him this much, they are basically all in. if he were to ever get in power now, they'd all be finished, so they'll do anything to stop him.
