On his show today Rush Limbaugh said that he has been remiss in not mentioning the Ron Paul-Mitt Romney alliance that he wrote about in an email this past January.

“There is an alliance between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney…whether it’s true or not that there has been an actual meeting of the minds and conversations and strategy developed between the two guys it is clear that there’s a hands off policy between Paul to Romney and vice-versa.”

Limbaugh was explaining an email that he wrote to friends this past January.  In that email Rush suggested that Ron Paul and Mitt Romney were not attacking each other during the Republican debates because of the prospect of Mitt Romney offering the VP slot to Ron Paul’s son, Rand should he win the nomination.

Rush said that various stories in the British press were reporting last night about the prospect of a Rand Paul vice-presidency and that Mitt Romney might even offer the job to Ron Paul himself.  “And then Rand Paul put out a statement saying he would be honored to be Romney’s VP” Rush said.

“Romney is never criticized by Paul but Paul has criticized everybody else that has become the most popular not-Mitt of the moment.”
