Rand Paul: GOP Infighting is a Good ThingSubmitted by telepathic on Thu, 02/06/2014 - 12:23
Washington (CNN) - Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky told a crowd of social conservatives Wednesday that fighting within the GOP is for the best.
Although Paul pointed out that the debate should not be “impolite” or “rude,” his comments go against what certain Republicans in office have said in the past: That party fighting and vocal disagreement only help Democrats and President Barack Obama.
“Where are we? People say 'don’t fight, you just have to go along to get along,'” Paul said. “We should fight. We should struggle for what we believe in and try to move the party forward.”
He added, “We have to decide are we going to go bold, are we going to go big, or are we going become Democrat-lite.”
