    Re: McCain & Graham Attack Paul on Filibuster

    I'll just say this: Sen. Rand Paul was barking up the wrong tree on this one. While I agree that it was important to get a declarative statement from the Obama Administration concerning drone attacks on U.S. soil against American citizens, his attempt to block Brenner's confirmation using the filerbuster was a boneheaded move. Why? Because as CIA Director, Brenner would have nothing to do with drone strikes on US soil. His attempt to get an commitment one way or another from the Obama Administration would have had legs IF he had filerbustered Hagel's confirmation instead. Atleast the SecDef has some say in the use of drones domestically or abroad in combat situations.

I wish he wouldn't interrupt the Senate's daily nap with his blathering. nothing good can come from all those idiots doing ****. kicking around the pauls is something americans can all join together in. We have so few things we can all do together, and i agree we should enjoy those things that bring us together as a nation.
    Ron Pauls was my congressmen and I guarantee if he was President the Fed wouldn't be making the "rich get richer " while almost 90 million people are out of work.

    I just wish BO would have let us in on his plan to prop up the banks and wall street while ignoring the working class in his campaign.

    I don't often agree with Dr. Paul, but I respect him for speaking out against the wild spending of his own party, particularly on military spending and endeavors.

    Yesterday was a joke, a sad piece of political theater. Nothing more.
    Perhaps, but that also applies to pretty much our entire political culture and more or less everything Washington does. If someone wants to be a fool for some perceived liberty instead of the grossly abused privileges of the socio-economic elite, more power to them.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I don't suppose you have any evidence to back that up. At all. However, I'll wait for you to prove such a ridiculous claim.

    This escalates...

    Paul fires back: Sens. McCain, Graham think the 'whole world is a battlefield'

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) blasted fellow GOP Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, saying the two “think the whole world is a battlefield.”

    Paul criticized the hawkish senators for thinking the laws of war should take precedence over the Bill of Rights. The two had criticized Paul’s statements about drone policy during the Kentucky Republican’s nearly 13-hour filibuster on Thursday.

    “They think the whole world is a battlefield, including America, and that the laws of war should apply,” Paul said in an interview on Fox News about McCain and Graham, who had described Paul’s comments about drones as “ridiculous.”

    It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

    John McCain would do well to keep his idiocy to himself. One of the worst candidates for President ever.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    What? You mean giving every family a tax credit for health insurance premiums paid for by... taxing health insurance premiums... wasn't a grand idea to fix the healthcare system!?
