    Some one, explain to me why I don't believe him. Oh yeah, cause not one single Republican said one single unkind word about Bush during his tenure. Now that the President is who he is, they are claiming all kinds of disgust with the laws that allow this type of action.

    Oh the tangled web...

    So Rand Paul is now the guiding light of the latest GOP manufactured crisis in Washington............Not surprising that Sen. Wyden would be aiding and abetting........................

    In Senate? Eight: Mike Lee (R-Utah), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.)

    These are Senators who joined the filibuster.

    Good evening, Bonz.

    I find Rand Paul's choice of reading material most interesting. Wasn't it Alice who cried "curiouser and curiouser" in response to what she was seeing? Sums up DC today, IMO!

    We former Politico types are still polite to our former fellows - mostly the nice ones left Politico and now meet here with all of you good folks!

    If the Senate works procedurally like I used to experience here, a member may yield time to another member and when he returns that other member may yield time back to him. As I understand it, so far today several Republicans have done this for him as well as Senator Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon who also opposes the Obama drone doctrine.

    Finally a voice of reason, "your voice". Rand Paul would find a problem with any thing President Obama supports and Paul and the rest of these nay sayers would be fighting to see who would be the first in line to scream if the POTUS had the ability to stop a terrorist attack here in the USA.

    Oh the tangled web...
    1. Rand Paul was not in office during Bush's Presidency.
    2. Paul has expressed his dislike for many of Bush's policies, especially concerning civil liberties
    3. The Republican Party does not represent one man's views.
