Bowling Green Daily News: Rand Paul blasts Obama’s nomination of Krueger (blast is an understatement)

Rand Paul just implied that Obama might be fitting the definition of "insane". Here he goes after Keynesians, war, taxes, jobs, and class warfare. I'm so glad we got him into the senate! A thoroughly enjoyable article!!!

"Following a speech to the Bowling Green Rotary Club on Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., harshly criticized President Barack Obama’s nomination of Alan Krueger to become chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers."

“You know they say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result,” Paul said. “Krueger was the architect for a lot of the policies we’ve already had - cash for clunkers, government paying money that they don’t have for people’s old cars and getting people to scrap old cars. A ridiculous idea that didn’t work. So (Obama) appoints this guy to now be his chief economic adviser. He really needs to rethink his philosophy.”

Later on he implies that class warfare works on people's envy to motivate them to sign up for redistribution policies...

“We need to not look enviously at the fellow next to us who has three cars and we have one car,” Paul said. “We need to get out there and work hard. We need to be educated. We need our kids to thrive. We can do it again, but you’re never getting there by envy. You’re not getting there by class warfare. You have to get there by producing things again and thriving as a country.”

The whole article is full of understatements

"During his speech, Paul alluded to the fact that taxing the rich more isn’t necessarily the right solution.

'Raising rates probably won’t bring any more revenue,' Paul said. 'You want to raise tax rates, you want to punish the rich. Well, the rich are the ones hiring us, the rich are the ones creating the jobs.'”

"...Isn't necessarily the RIGHT solution", eh? Give us all a break, right?

Obama is a willing participant to his own Blackmail

He is trained and groomed for the job of dismantling America.

If Obama gets out of line or blows the whistle on his handlers, then his birth certificate issue will suddenly be dealt with in the courts. He'd find himself being deported, or some insane patsy would be allowed to bring him down.

The elite did not want a U.S. Citizen for president this time around (2008), they wanted an outsider for the transition stages of their criminal world ponzi financial system.

Not only does this tactic put Obama solidly in the corner of the globalists, but being so blatant about having an outsider as president serves the purpose of psychological warfare. This is for demoralizing their enemy...the traditional U.S. citizen!

I get the sense that Obama

I get the sense that Obama really doesn't give a s**t. He's in there to: put in place... to sign into law... to remove, create, wreak as much havoc as he can whilst in the White House. He's going to use the system,( something he's been used to doing for a long time), flip the bird to anyone who tries to stop him, oppose him ...or criticize him. He'll be handsomely rewarded for putting into place all the grunt work for NWO for the next Republican President who gets there. RON PAUL IS THE ONLY GLITCH ON THE POLITICAL SCENE. People are waking up!

Obama is intentionally

Obama is intentionally furthering the economic scenario towards societal breakdown and collapse. The liquidation phase is almost complete but may go on for a couple more years and then they'll pull the pin.

At this point, I don't expect anything else from Obama,...

except more of the same.

Rand Paul quote: "this president has added more debt than the previous 43 presidents combined.”

Rand's our "trick up the sleeve"...

I just thought of something. Big headlines for Rand Paul also equal exposure for Ron Paul. The more media opportunity Rand can get, the more chances we have to get Dr. Paul's name out there... and his message too. Plus, I think Rand has the ability to reach out to some of the more hawkish voters. Truly, he may prove to be the trick up this campaign's sleeve.

Logical, daring and SO so true. . . Obm IS insane to appoint Krueger.

Pretty daring in a group of

Pretty daring in a group of probably mixed parties..:) I would have liked to hear the whole speech.

I looked and couldn't find it...

If anyone does find it I'll be glad to post it here.
