Rand Paul: AP Phone Spying Proves Obama is “Drunk on Power”

 | Paul Joseph Watson | May 14, 2013

Senator Rand Paul responded to the barrage of scandals to hit the Obama administration, from Benghazi, to the IRS targeting conservatives, to the Justice Department spying on Associated Press reporters, by accusing President Obama of being “drunk on power.”



Scoffing at an upcoming House Committee on Ways & Means inquiry into how the IRS targeted those who mentioned the Constitution, the bill of rights, or even making “America a better place to live,” Kentucky Senator Paul said he would introduce a resolution today calling for the IRS agents involved to be fired for abusing their power in targeting people for their political activities.

“The President says he’s going to do something if they’re guilty, well it sounds like there’s already been an investigation and no one’s been fired,” Paul told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “I’m afraid he’s going to do about as much as he did after Benghazi,” he added, noting that those involved in the botched security operation still work for the State Department.

Accusing Obama of engaging in “faux outrage” over the IRS scandal, Paul said the President was “using the power of his government to investigate his enemies, he’s tapping the phones of the press, and it turns out last year he signed legislation that allows him to detain an American without a trial and send them to Guantanamo Bay.”

“This sounds like a President somewhat drunk on power, not cautious about how he uses power,” added Paul.

I've been unsure about Rand but...

...I think I'm a big fan again. I think he is and has been playing the game. I think I'd donate quite a bit of both time and money to his campaign if he runs for president in 2016 (if I have any money left to donate should we experience the economic collapse before then).

Hannity is drunk on power

and Rand is bland (continued smooching with Hannity who smeared his dad, unforgivable). Up next Dick Cheney. Good grief.

I have some issues with Gary Johnson but man he at least has a spark
and some integrity.

Do you guys ever watch Fabian4Liberty?


If you can get past his lisp, he's definitely not afraid of speaking his mind.

Presidential power run amok are grounds for impeachment.

At this late date, the "I" word is appropriate to start using.

Currently running 2:1 for impeachment

As Usual Obama does everything wrong.

Great video here on why his Tax plan won't work.

WHAT is the hold up????

Nixon had ONE major scandal & impeachment proceedings started.Obama has had more than I can count.....WHAT THE HELL IS WITH OUR CONGRESS????When will they impeach this criminal & evict him from our house????

Am I the only one that caught the BIG IRONY

... of FOX doing a piece attacking the current Blue Team administration for it's crimes and misdemeanors.

Meanwhile on the bottom right hand of the screen it says:



How funny would it be to run these videos back to back, to see how they then smooch up to the previous Red Team psychopath they gave the pass (and continue to give the pass) on for eight years for EXACTLY THE SAME KIND OF SHIT

Awesome Interview Rand

Paul saLAMMMED Hillary and Obama which you know the GOP lap up eagerly. And, Rand managed to sneak in some NDAA and some talk on UN gun control. That's always a plus.

Once the primaries start and the GOP settle on their golden RINO, I'm curious to see how quickly Hanity turns, with his eyes reducing to slits and his rattle snake tail emerging and shaking behind his head.

Playing nicey nice now only helps us though as all those who love Hanity will actually begin to listen what Rand has to say. It will be up to Rand to try to keep them though by changing their mindset.
