The poster was referring to the finish line, not the starting gate. No matter how strong a candidate looks at the beginning, the point is did they do what they needed to do to WIN the race, and defeat the opposition? Whoever the nominee was going to be had to build a winning vote coalition, and circumvent obstacles blocking them from succeeding. Trump accomplished this, Rand did not.
Pointing out the obvious is not idiocy, nor is it asking that Rand "become more like Trump." It's simply to suggest that our candidates also build a winning vote coalition, and circumvent obstacles blocking them from succeeding. Those factors are not unique to Trump. Rand should have done those things become a more successful candidate, period.
