Rand Paul: Romney Running In 2016 Would Be ‘The Definition Of Insanity’

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has called the news this week of a possible 2016 run by Mitt Romney “the definition of insanity.”

“When you do the same thing and expect a different result, it’s sort of what Einstein said, that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result,” the senator told NH Journal in an interview published Wednesday.

Fox News caught up with Paul in New Hampshire to ask him about the remark; the senator dialed it back slightly but repeated that Romney had tried and failed to win twice before.

“I do think though that the same old same old has been tried, and if we try the same thing again, we might get the same result,” he said.
