Rand Paul just body slammed Dick Cheney on CNN's Situation Room

Link thanks goldenequity:


Senator Rand Paul appeared on CNN’s Situation Room today. The host asked Senator Paul to respond to video of Dick Cheney who told Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace that the senator was “wrong” when he criticized the NSA’s surveillance programs.

“What I would ask is who did they fire after 9/11?” Paul asked. “Not one person was fired.”

“Do you remember the ’20th hijacker’?” he continued. “[Zacarias] Moussaoui, captured a month in advance? The FBI agent wrote 70 letters asking, ‘let’s look at this guy’s computer.’ In the FBI, they turned him down.”

“It wasn’t that they couldn’t get a warrant, nobody asked for a warrant,” Paul added. “To me, that was really, really bad intelligence – really bad police work – and, really, someone should have been removed from office for that.”

Liz Cheney, daughter (spliced from loosely related editorial)

http://youtu.be/HH7ByDs85e8 No response dirctly from Dick Cheney nor his daughter on this matter. Taken out of context, here is what an admission of past errors might look like, based on previously aired editorials posing as news.

Why isn't Cheney in prison?

Thank you ! Rand!

Thank you for standing for the principles your father stands for, and that the rest of the RNC seems to have sold for a song.

Dick Cheney Gets Human Heart Transplant

VIRGINIA - USA - Former Vice President Dick Cheney was recovering on Saturday after undergoing a human heart transplant.

The 71-year-old Republican, who was best known for his torture tactics during the George W. Bush administration's War of Perpetual Terror, was in the intensive care unit at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia.

Cheney, who never had a human heart before, but instead had a blackened charcoal type object in his chest, has now received a human heart from an anonymous donor.

"The heart was ripped out from a live donor who had been detained and tortured in the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Dick wanted the freshest possible human heart," Cheney's spokeswoman, Tara Torcher, said.

During Cheney's eight years as vice president from 2001 to 2009, he was responsible for the deaths and torture of millions of people around the world.

Cheney was a strong advocate for the 2003 invasion of Iraq and was among the most outspoken of Bush administration officials warning of the danger from Iraq's suspected stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. No such weapons were ever found.

Cheney's doctor, Al Hertyu, said: "We managed to get him a human heart. Cheney is not human, so the human heart will probably be rejected unless we pump his body full of drugs to stop the rejection of tissue. For someone like Dick Cheney, a human heart is an alien object and his antibodies will fight it with all their might."

Truly nice and closely bordering GREAT!

I agree with Rand

The young voters are attracted to Rand, Ron, Amash, McClintock, Lee and to some extent Cruz and their message.

They do not want Contol Freaks in office

Really Liked This From Rand

I loved the line at the end:

Republicans will find out that I will and I do say that we do everything we can to protect our country, consistent with our constitution. That's what we're defending.

The tv talking heads keep missing that point.

They say governments job is to keep us safe, isn't it? Rand is working hard to wake up American. He just has a different approach to the politics than his dad.

Rand Paul is THE man!

He's totally going to win over all the independents. IF the GOP screws him over, its their own funeral!

Hey DICK, When You See A FED Shoot!




That is what you call a smack down! Go Rand Paul!

Even a new beating heart cannot change the Halliburton in Cheney

Cheney may have gotten a real heart, but he is still in search of a soul.

Only A heart?

He has a case of still-beating virgin hearts delivered every 2 days, for light snacking.

Having talked to several folks from Halliburton...

it seems that most people at Halliburton thought Cheney was an asshole and are glad that he's gone.

to get to the positions he

to get to the positions he has attained you have to be an assh798.

I thought his comments on Clapper lying were more newsworthy

Part of the same interview. Here is the whole thing.


That was priceless.

Thanks for the rest of the story. Clapper should be arrested.

rand was excellent here

snowden said it ws an honor being considered a traitor by the war criminal cheney.

Take That "DICK!!!"
