Rand Paul Wasn't Coming Out Of Left Field

"On Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) took to tending the fires of accountability in regard to the Benghazi attacks.

Several pundits have written articles calling Paul a grand stander and accusing him of asking unrelated questions. This tells me that many of our "pundits" don't understand the Benghazi attack beyond the "facts" as Rachel Maddow presents them. Paul did have precedent in the questions he asked, ranging from America's involvement in the Syrian civil war, to a complete administrative failure at the hands of the State Department regarding Ambassador Chris Stevens' death."

Brilliant Political Move.

Rand set the stage for future debate(2016) should Hillary decide she wants to ride on Air Force One full time.

He should have pressed her on the actions prior to the Qadafi overthrow. All unconstitutional, followed by dereliction of duty in Benghazi. Now that would have been a home run!

Stumbled across this - he talks about Rand and Hillary in the beginning and then moves on to other topics.

That Turkey question was the only thing that caught Clinton

off guard. The entire hearing was a waste of time and money, except that question.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Rand is Brilliant

Absolutely Brilliant politician. Just gained a ton of street cred with the Republican NeoCon/Establishment crowd. What he needs to do if he is going to win the nomination.


Means they also think he's a viable contender for president, not that they would vote for him.. but he's a power to be reconnned with.

Nice find.

Nice find.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.
