DeMint has always stated he doesn't want the Presidency. I believe him. If Romney wins, Rand might have to wait until 2020 and his chances would be diminished because Romney will have destroyed the Republican brand, and America might be too far off to save by then.
FYI, Governor Gary Johnson has said he's running again in 2016.
The title was Rand is running for President... I didn't realize it was a requirement to run in the GOP to run for President.
Governor Johnson will be running as a Libertarian again in 2016.
PS: He'll be on Colbert Report on Monday night.
in light of today's new april one topic in hot topics,
this reads differently than before! makes my day!!!

How the GOP stole the nomination
Rand isn't going to run against an incumbent Republican if Romney is President in 2016. If that's the case, Rand won't be able to run until 2020. I don't understand why people here talk like it's a given that Rand will be able to run for President in 2016.
he'd take Mr Romney on if the guy wins.
Rand will run. i agree with Matt Collins
on how likely Rand's name just might
be on everyone's lips at Tampa if the
good doctor decides to bow out at
the GOP convention with an ease
and grace. Dr Ron could ask us all to
humour a vote for Rand then, if there
are multiple ballots and no closing in
on the magic 1144+ number by anyone.

F@#K the MSM, all Ron Paul has to do is keep drawing these massive crowds and build his momentum going into Tampa. He's not going to stop campaigning even if Romney gets the official number of delegates from the popular vote to win on the first ballot. And if we keep supporting him and growing the movement Ron Paul will control the nomination in Tampa.
Ron Paul: He irritates more idiots in fewer words than any American politician ever.
NO MORE LIARS! Ron Paul 2012
Rand cannot be President until he fixes his hair. I'd like to see him run for Governor first; as he stands now he is sort-of an important nobody. It's much more difficult to ignore the Presidential aspirations of a former Senator and Governor, who also has a strong base.
Senator is just as good of a jumping off point as governor. Rand is known very well already. I think he will be ready to go in '16
In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will...
he needs to keep that mop on his head trimmed if he wants to be president.

County-wide, our people are running for 20 out of 24 precinct committees. Most of them are unopposed, but not me, oh no, I'll be the one who has to work hard for it!
