Excerpts from Rand Paul’s tea party response to Obama’s State of the Union

Rand Paul steps away from the two party dichotomy and offers a third voice , criticizing both Republicans and Democrats.

"Both parties have been guilty of spending too much, of protecting their sacred cows, of backroom deals in which everyone up here wins, but every taxpayer loses. It is time for a new bipartisan consensus. It is time Democrats admit that not every dollar spent on domestic programs is sacred. And it is time Republicans realize that military spending is not immune to waste and fraud."

It is intewresting that this is getting some coverage in the media. We will see how long that lasts and whether it will resonate with more of the average voters.
