And some doubt the chessmaster... this is golden.

This facebook post sums it up, you need to see the wording of the actual post on facebook so I will copy the headline, and then add the youtube video. Enjoy.

I am deeply disappointed and disturbed by the Senate's inability to stand with me in defense of Israel today. My support will not waiver and I hope the United States Senate will prevail in cutting off American aid to those that refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

Above is the headline of the facebook post, talk about slicing and dicing doubters recognize the finesse.

Here is the youtube video below the facebook post....

Politics is like Game of Thrones

You either live or die.

And just as Tyrion Lannister knows how to play it, so does Rand Paul.

OK, OK fine. Everything he said about foreign aid was good.

But why the "Stand With Israel" title?

That is dangerous and disingenuous because I don't think Rand really believes his own statement about our supporting Israel with billions of aid each year.

I see what he's up to, but it will backfire and to the uninformed will make Rand seem like a big supporter of Israel which if we won, he'd either have to live up to or admit he was lying - neither of which is a very good choice.

Does anyone here really believe that "Standing with Israel" is a big passion of Rand's. I don't think so.

Is THAT why he ran for senate? I don't think so.

I liked Ron's message better; He said "We give Israel 3 billion dollars a year and then we give her enemies 3 times that much."

That really drove home the point of the wrong-headedness of foreign aid.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

This is brilliant political strategy.

Just brilliant!

for sure Kathleen

he just destroyed the whole stand with Israel argument and exposed that there may be some deeper hidden meaning beyond Israel. This is the greatest political move I have seen from our side yet, I hope he can carry it, it's gonna come from all sides at this point.

Swoosh! What was that?!?

It was a statesman.
Kicking you all in your respective gluteus Maximus.

It's like he was spanking them with a giant plank of reality.
Rand crush puny politicians!

I'd wager that they never seen it coming.
Good.

Rand knew no way this would pass however now no one can call him anti Semite going forward....

exactly

this was so brilliantly plotted, it blows my mind.

Is the biggest obstacle to peace in the middle east foreign aid?

If there is peace, the money stops flowing.

Rand's bill would force the process forward. It shows the absurdity of the negotiations as they are right now.

All his points are straight on the mark.

Who objected?

That was beautiful! I'm not the biggest Rand fan, and certainly not a fan of Israel, but he did a fantastic job there.

To see his argument route there really gave me hope he is still firmly on our side. He took an absurd arguments and put together equally absurd, contradictory arguments that are very well constructed. He then forced a senate objector to abandon any apparent ties to logic and kill this bill.

Good job Rand! Very well played!
