Is Rand Paul's Romney Endorsement "Trivial" and "Meaningless"?

An official blogger for the Ron Paul 2012 campaign insists that Senator Rand Paul's endorsement of Mitt Romney is trivial and meaningless, despite the reception of that announcement by followers of Ron Paul.

Is Ron Paul about to endorse Mitt Romney? Would it mean anything if he does?

These are questions that are being bandied about in conservative, libertarian, and constitutionalist circles in the wake of Senator Rand Paul’s endorsement last week of the Republican Party’s “presumptive nominee.”

As I reported the day of Senator Paul’s announcement, the son of Ron Paul told Sean Hannity that his “first choice had always been [his] father,” Senator Paul then went on to say that now that the nominating process is over he would be campaigning for former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney.
