Rand Paul: Ironic Democrats Shut Down Government Over ObamaCare Delay, But Now Support It

"Interestingly the government was shut down with Democrats refusing to accept a 1-year delay on the individual mandate, now you've got a dozen of them of them saying 'oh guess what, it's such a horrible rollout we're now in favor of delaying the individual mandate.' So there certainly is some irony, the Democrats shut down government because they wouldn't accept a 1-year delay, now it's so bad they're actually in favor of a 1-year delay."

rand discuss blowback. i can't recall him ever mentioning it.

If we had some 'town criers', this would be the type of news

Look, I get that Rand is

Look, I get that Rand is trying to make an argument for ending foreign aid, but the pandering to the Peter Kings of the world with the rhetorical approach he's taking is upsetting. The American government, under the leadership of self-professed Christians, and cheered on by the majority of "Christians" across the land, has systematically starved and slaughtered Muslims WHOLESALE for the last 2-3 decades for God's sake. You can do better than that Rand.

Rand 'Samurai' Paul aka Rand San

I see it more as linguistic ju-jitsu

"Jutsu" can be translated to mean "art" or "technique" and represents manipulating the opponent's force against himself rather than confronting it with one's own force.[1] Jujutsu developed among the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armed and armored opponent in which one uses no weapon, or only a short weapon.[3] Because striking against an armored opponent proved ineffective, practitioners learned that the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy took the form of pins, joint locks, and throws. These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it.[4]
