Libertarian favorite Ron Paul doesn’t ‘fully endorse’ Mitt Romney for president. Um, trouble for Romney among Paul supporters? The Romney campaign gave Rep. Paul a chance to speak at the convention, but he turned it down due to the conditions of the offer, the New York Times reports:

Mr. Paul, in an interview, said convention planners had offered him an opportunity to speak under two conditions: that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney. He declined.

“It wouldn’t be my speech,” Mr. Paul said. “That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.”
