Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, disputes [Ron] Paul’s influence on the [Tea Party] movement. He said that while he agrees with some of Paul’s ideas, others — such as in foreign policy – – are “just nuts.”
“This idea that Ron Paul started the Tea Party movement is revisionist history,” he said. “People say Ron Paul is the godfather of the Tea Party. No, he isn’t.”
It’s Rand Paul, the Kentucky Republican, who Phillips and some political analysts see as more polished and electable, should he seek the presidency.
