Rand Paul Ad Asks: Is Trump Even a Republican, Let Alone a Conservative?

The gloves are coming off!

Rand Paul raises some serious questions about The Donald. Watch the first minute.

In an era where conservatives won't forgive Speaker Boehner or Senate Majority Leader McConnell for failing to match rhetoric with results, how forgiving will voters be for Trump who appears to be on both sides of every issue?

Trump responds to this and similar attacks by pointing out that Ronald Reagan was once a Democrat with some liberal views. What Trump leaves out of that comparison is that Reagan developed and then expressed a clear conservative vision going back more than a decade before he was elected President and never during that time did he waver or support Democrats as recently as two years prior. Here's Reagan's 1964 speech "A Time for Choosing" [text, video]. Reagan's conservative message resonates today more than 50 years later. You can't say that about Trump!
