That was sweet. Hope Rand goes far and gets more exposure. He has conviction and a spine.
Rand really threw him off his game.............
“Well George... why dont you tell the audience that you were a democratic strategist working for Bill Clinton, and that thats where your questions come from?”
I am starting to like this guy, it is nice to hear a politician who doesnt take any crap off pipsqueak little Democrat, liberal, Clinton butt kissing ,pimps like Stephanopoulis.

And then runs away from David Gregory and Meet the Press.
Has Rand explained this yet? Are we sure he actually accepted this invitation and then cancelled as reported?
Good, no more limpwrist, bootlicking RINO, East Coast, Liberal Republicanism!
Excellent response. We need more like him. Paul won’t be invited back and they will continue to bring this up.
I’d wish he should asked the question, “Do you believe Disney should be force to hire transvestites to work in their parks or churches in their offices?”
He actually changed the subject instead of defending the rights of property owners
Good to see!
I LOVE Rand Paul. “Well uh, we are just asking questions that come up in the context of this campaign”
“Well, why don’t you bring me on with Richard Byrd, and talk about how he actually FILIBUSTERED THIS BILL vs something they insinuate I might believe in.... I don’t believe in repealing the ....Housing Act.”
I love it when public figures thrash unctuous moralist preacher wannabee reporters. Politicians are sooooooo image conscious that this rarely rarely happens. This one is especially delectable.
No, he actually RESPONDED to the fact that the media had already changed the subject themselves and inferred that he wanted to overturn the Civil Rights act of 1964, when all he had done was defend the rights of property owners against the overreaching parts of this act. He was reasonable and straightforward with Maddow, and had just had enough by the time he sat down with Stephanopolous. He is articulate when he is being instructive, and he is articulate when he is taking scalps. He was taking scalps yesterday morning.
Finally, a HERO, willing to call these people what they are because he is not indebted to a destructive political machine which he hopes will enrich him personally. Thank God for men like Dr. Paul..I hope people in this nation who feel the relief I feel when I watch this will send him money and support him in word and deed, and, hopefully, others with the principles and skill he obviously has will also rise up to stop the communism shaping up all around us. If we do not return to a system of individual freedom in this country, our people will be brought to mourning such as we have never seen and Dr. Paul has come to the forefront as a General in that army. Make no mistake..The MSM will stop at nothing to stop him..He is a great threat to them because they fear exposure.
Geez...where’d somebody find a Pubbie with spine/testosterone?!!!A new species!!
Watching Fox just now and they were talking about how Alan Grayson’s bombastic speech is actually helping his fundraising. So how does Rand Paul speaking his mind hurt him? The press can’t have it both ways. Grayson is a bombastic, hateful, boarish man who scores money & votes with his hate speech. But Rand Paul will suffer from being honest and promoting private property rights?
I think the media is misreading the publics mood - we are TIRED of the lies and obfuscation of political double-speak. I think Rand Paul is in a good position to hammer this point home - not civil rights - but the point of dishonest politicians who give 1000 word speeches to say NOTHING.
George, that is going to leave a mark
George’s reply: Ouch, ouch, ouch,..... lol
Why give the MSM morons ratings? Going on MSM programs is no longer relevant to campaigning.
Well done. Rand Paul can easily play against these partisan talking heads like Steffie Stephanopolis and win.
Yeah, but why doesn’t Rand want to repeal the fair housing act. What business is it of the government who I sale my house too?
If he believes in the right to refuse to serve someone because of their race; he’s a loser. He’s got to distance himself from positions such as these.
Well George... why dont you tell the audience that you were a democratic strategist working for Bill Clinton, and that thats where your questions come from?
THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN ‘A RIP’
what he said - not so much
Geez...whered somebody find a Pubbie with spine/testosterone?!!!A new species!!
LETS WAIT AND SEE IF HE GETS ELECTED - THAT AFTER ALL IS THE GOAL
he believes in the right to refuse to serve someone because of their race; hes a loser. Hes got to distance himself from positions such as these.
NO YOU’RE THE ONE WHO NEEDS TO BE educated to the meaning of freedom
YOU ARE RIGHT ON BROTHER!
YOU ARE RIGHT ON BROTHER!
Where and when did he say that?
“If he believes in the right to refuse to serve someone because of their race; hes a loser. Hes got to distance himself from positions such as these.”
No, social engineering does not trump property rights.
If a black congressional caucus can exclude white members, a Korean restaurant owner can exclude all but Korean customers if he chooses to. It seems to me this would severely cramp his profit potential, but why should I be allowed to deny the Korean owner his right to serve who he wants to because I might get my feelins hurt?
Don’t you know by now that only white folks can be racist?
LOL! You think Stupidopolus wet his panties?
Steffie the puzzy looked shaken....not stirred ;-)
Whether Rand Paul is elected or not..its time to start calling out the media on the carpet.
Rand Paul is too libertarian for my taste but I’d vote for him any day. He is pretty frisky to say the least!
He will easily win this race due to his fighting spirit
A— That civil rights misstep only matters inside the DC Beltway and by canceling Face the Nation he’s not feeding the DC denizens
B— Media inquisitors better be ready to be accused of parroting Democrat talking points. All Rand has to do keep up with the “Democrat talking points” mantra
” All Rand has to do keep up with the Democrat talking points mantra “
Yep, that has the MSM left wingers dancin ;-)
Conservatives have to take lessons here. Never give a liberal reporter the chance to pretend they’re object. Remind the viewing audience ALL THE TIME that these clowns are leftists and are parroting leftist views. Good for Rand Paul.
Kentucky ain’t DC. The screaming ninnies in DC can carry on about Rand and Civil Rights....to no avail. Actually it’s helping Rand Paul
Rand is showing the way. If EVERY Republican dared Obama to come to his/her state/district to stand with the Democrats running this year we would clean up. Some will but alas the cowards won’t. If Toomey does this he blows Sestak away.
Demonstrating a core Rush principle. Don’t accept any of the left’s premises. Once we accept their premises we’re playing with a 2 touchdown deficit. Question each and every one of their premises. Works for me.
It is nice to see a Republican with some spine. We need A LOT MORE R’s with spines pushing back, instead of the idiot gentleman enabling country club blue-bloods we currently have running the GOP.
Bad boy. Rand is not going to get invited to the black tie parties if he keeps this up!
I can’t STAND to look at or listen to Step-on-all-of-us, but I made a rare exception in this case, to watch him get b*slapped. It was worth it, but that’s my quota for the year.
Grow a spine, you yellow backed Republicans. This is the attitude we need from you cowards.
I would not want a libertarian legislature, but having a dozen or more in there to shake the tree is a good thing. They can ask questions and broach topics the mainstream Republicans never would. It gets the discussion going. So while I am not libertarian and don’t want such governance, I hope we get a lot more people like Rand to put pressure on the GOP to reduce the size of government and keep these topics going in the public discussion.
Rand Paul said some dumb things about the BP spill today. He better be careful. I would vote for him over any Democrat.
What does Rand Paul say about that? I have seen several clips of him and he doesn't look like he is inclined to run from anything.
Watched the interview and did not hear anything dumb about what he said. I thought it was very measured. He did not give BP a pass, he merely took exception to BO's grandstanding boot-to-the-throat treatment of BP.
LOL Have you seen most of the Disney characters?
Yeah George where do your questions come from?
