    The left has a new enemy. This enemy was against the Iraq war, the patriot act, and many other things they pretended to care about once upon a time.
    It's all Dubbya's Rand Paul's fault!

    Is it not dissappointing to see him back track on a policy so quickly?

    those that know his fathers positions knew this was exactly how it was going to work.

    If he manages to win a few more terms, we can expect a similar complaint about his views on term limits.

    It'll be disappointing if he actually back tracks on policy. IE if he doens't attempt to get earmarks either removed or at least suspended. If he attempts to do that then he's not back tracking on a policy.

    He is not backtracking on policy. He stated simply that he will fight for Kentucky citizens. He didnt say he will go after pork...he will fight o ensure the citizens in Kentucky (that make no mistake WILL BE TAXED) get back that portion which they should. Look at the alternative...he DOESNT fight to get Kentucky's share of education and highway funds...does Kentucky get taxed any LESS? Of course not.

    Perhaps liberal ideologues (with an obvious bent against anything associated with the term 'libertarian') would be better served to wait til he actually DOES something actionable (or is even sworn in) before they accuse him.

    I agree. the True Believers have already made allowances for it and will accept it without so much as a whimper because he is a fellow traveler. He knows the secret handshake and can do not wrong in their eyes.

    So they turn on Paul when he deviates from orthodoxy?

    Good question. But then...what Kentucky has received prior to Rand Pauls election has no relevant bearing on the current discussion. An elected representative of the people of Kentucky has committed to fight for their interests. For shame!
