to describe his behavior

but i'm good with calling him creepy as well, and yes, you're right, there is a stunted adolescence about him, like the kid at school who taunts, and gloats until someone punches him in the nose.

Outstanding performance by Rand.

I must admit, I can't remember someone answer questions with so much poise and common sense.

Good job by Rand, but Rand,

Good job by Rand, but Rand, Ed Snowden IS a hero.

Cutting people off before

they finish speaking is the tactic of disrespect. That needs to be
corrected early on by the Paul camp!

Gotta say I'm really

Gotta say I'm really impressed with Rand. And it's not just because he's RP's son. Heck, being his son is not a guarantee for getting a vote of confidence and it shouldn't be. Each individual should be judged on his own merits. But I do have to say that he's remarkably similar to RP in demeanor and it shows.

No partisan smear attacks, doesn't engage in ad hominem, his arguments are purely based on reason and not emotion, doesn't hit someone when he's down, always tries to be fair even to someone he disagrees with and he isn't trapped in the two party system groupthink and thinks of the other side as enemies, tries not to generalize by saying liberals are always this way or that way, sees people as individuals and on and on it goes. It's because RP had these traits besides his track record that people believed in him. It's his personality that shows me he has what it takes. He doesn't even need to play politics in order to play politics. By simply being himself and trying to act reasonable and fair, this is all that it takes.

Good Job Rand!

Rand does an excellent job of answering/fielding questions put before him. Great presence and tact!

I feel a sense of pride today listening to Rand. It reminds me of how I felt listening to Ron Paul. Interesting that as I have always supported Rand, I feel I am starting to have that belief and hope in him, that was so dominant in me with Ron Paul.
Go Rand!

I Hate David Gregory - Another Shill For The Controlled Media

Rand Paul handled himself with perfect decorum. He is presidential material, no doubt.

I loved the way Rand defended his Dad. I got a tear in my eye when he did that. I have a soft spot for Ron Paul and when anyone attacks him I get pretty riled up... Gregory was out of line and he behaved as if 'FAT CHANCE' Christe were the FRONT RUNNER"

We will never get a man of the people in the White House until America comes crashing down in an economic catastrophe. We need to start over again with our own fair and objective media. I hope I am alive to see it, but i' not going to hold my breath.

Hellary Clinton and 'Fat Chance' Christe are pigs at the trough..They are the most disgusting people you will ever meet.

The only way they can beat Rand is by VOTER FRAUD"

"STANDwithRAND"

I wanted to smack that smug grin off...

David Gregory's face through my computer screen. They should call Meet the Press, Meet the Propaganda Wing of the DNC.

Smack the smug grin?

Meet the Punch

CHECK

Rand just called "CHECK" on Hillary. The Clintons will be forced to respond to this. I've never heard anyone frame the Lewinsky scandal like this, and the timing couldn't be more perfect considering the current cause du jour among the Dems is sexual harassment. Rand also further entrenches himself as Hillary's biggest foe, which only reinforces his bid for both nominations. This guy is brilliant.

You are correct and I had to

You are correct and I had to chuckle when he asked Rand if Bill's actions with Lewinsky should be held against Hilary because imo when she made the decision to stay married to him the answer became yes. It wasn't like that was his first fling nor was it his last.

Rand handled this exceptionally well

One knife throw after another was caught, turned around with skill and a cool confidence in himself. Like a boss.

Definitely

channeling his father.

The force is strong in this one.

Caught this earlier on tv

I thought he handled himself very well. Glad to see him defending his father.

The fact of the matter is...

Democrats will try to associate everything Rand does with his father and believe it's fair game, then cry foul if anyone associates Hillary with her sexual predator husband.

It's only matter of time before they will label him racist by association.

Neither

Dr. Ron Paul or Dr. Rand Paul appear to be racist in the slightest. Quite the contrary, they both talk about policies promoting inclusiveness, and how the drug war has disproportionately and unfairly treated minorities.

I absolutely agree...

but try telling that to Democrats. They will say since Ron Paul was against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the newsletters that he's racist. Never mind, Dr. Paul's reasoning that it forced integration and expanded racial tensions, they will not agree.

If Rand is the nominee, I doubt he'll be, the Dems will go for the jugular.
