Default Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

I heard Mark Shields say on the PBS "Newshour" today, after I posted, that Romney's camp is being particularly careful not to criticize Paul, because Romney is terrified of a third-party run by Paul, that such a run would give the election to Obama, in their view. And Shields attributed a similar view to "everyone" on the Republican side. Shields tends to know what he is talking about.

Paul is a Republican, when he is not a Libertarian. People tend to know this. Libertarians are much closer to the Republican Party than to the Democratic Party, whatever the origins of the American branch of libertarianism may be.
