Ron Paul and Rick Perry are scrapping over who’s the true heir of Ronald Reagan, in case you haven’t heard. Think that subject will come up in Wednesday night’s debate at the Reagan presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif.? We think there’s a good chance it will.

Representative Paul started this tussle with an attack ad aimed at Texas Governor Perry. Perry’s the front-runner now, so he’s going to have to get used to the other hopefuls coming after him.

Anyway, the Paul ad is called “The One Who Stood With Reagan.” It starts with the blunt words, “The establishment called him extreme and unelectable. They said he was the wrong man for the job.”

The narrator is talking about Mr. Reagan there – but yes, we know, that’s what all the pundits are saying about Paul today. The ad goes on to say that Paul was attracted to Reagan’s message of smaller government and lower taxes and that he was one of only four congressmen to endorse him for president.
