Paul: Well, I think competition makes things better. You have to compete with other late-night comedians; I have to compete with other physicians. I think competition makes us better. Think if you didnt have that guy, whats his name, you have to compete with?

While I am suspect of anyone with his bloodline, so far I like him a lot.
It’s about time that weak sister Pubbies have found their backbones and are now getting in the faces of the low life Democrats, labor unions, liberals, left-wingers and...most of all the failed, useless. empty suit, POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama!!! Do you folks have any idea how many millions of Americans lost their jobs, careers and futures because of greedy, criminal, political labor unions???
Just saw the clip. Letterman is one of the stupidest f*cks on tv or anywhere for that matter. I can’t believe people actually applaud his stupidity. He should be embarassed. He makes Forrest Gump look like a genius.
Acually, Letterman was quite civil. I was surprised. I still hate him.
I enjoyed the clip a lot. Thanks.
Rand Paul was charming, likable, unflappable, knowledgeable, articulate and a good ambassador for tax cuts.
talk about pearls before swine...
The guy sounds just like Lillian Rearden in Atlas Shrugged. He adheres not to reason or intellectual analysis, but to pure emotion. Paul must be "wrong" because Letterman feels like he's wrong.
Who knows, perhaps Letterman is intelligent enough to eventually come to recognize this fact about himself, and maybe he'll have enough self-respect to recognize his own defense mechanisms for the cognitively dissonant state he found himself in during this clip, and begin to abandon them.
"I cant believe people actually applaud his stupidity."
In a country of 310M, every studio audience is going to have their share of morons. Letterman, it seems, has his share plus a little extra.
And yet when confronted with the fact that the top 50% pay 97% of the taxes, liberals like Letterman say it’s incorrect and change the subject. I have very few liberal friends left because of this tactic.
I agree, in typical liberal fashion Dave thinks (or knows) Paul is wrong but doesn’t know why.
Paul also could have touched on the fact that people vote with their feet, when speaking about onerous state tax rates. He could have pointed to the fact that for the first time in its history, CA didn't add population relative to the national population grown, and states like NY, NJ and MA (and other NE) states are loosing population (and tax base) because people are flooding to the Carolinas, GA and FL and other southern states because of the friendlier business laws and less onerous tax burden.
Other than that, I thought Paul was terrific - much more rational than his old man.
I stopped watching late-nite TV during the Clinton years. They all suck.
Actually it's the taxpayers who have awakened to the outrageous excesses of Democrats and their union buddies. Thanks to this new group of Governors we finally have some sensible leaders at the state level. But, as usual, the limp-wrist elected Pubbies in Washington are along for the ride $61B out of $3.6T is chump change.
Actually, I lost my job when Obama went for that swim in Pensacola bay - you know, the part that was unaffected by the spill. He was sending a message to the Coast Guard that the crisis was over. How much oil is still out there - most of what was spilled. Crisis over my a$$.
“I agree, in typical liberal fashion Dave thinks (or knows) Paul is wrong but doesnt know why.”
he doesn’t think or know anything. That’s the problem. He feels and wants to believe certain things. And that’s good enough for him and his ilk.
Leno often makes sense with his humor, Letterman does Jerry Lewis shtick.. because he is not bright..

Letterman admits that he (Dave) is retarded.
Its about time that weak sister Pubbies have found their backbones and are now getting in the faces of the low life Democrats, labor unions, liberals, left-wingers and...most of all the failed, useless. empty suit, POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama!!!

Yes, they have cost jobs and redistribution of US wealth to other countries, and to me, what is most troubling, is the loss of opportunities for our children and grandchildren. Imprisonment is too good for BO, his backers, and his czars—these people are criminals seeking to destroy our freedom—there attacks are against us and our families. When does it end? Is it too late? Will it take decades to recover?

I have no lib/prog friends by choice. I want no association with anyone who seeks to subjugate people to the will of a bullying government. Libs and progs are my enemies, not my friends.
When Paul pointed out facts, ol' dave would respond, "There is something wrong with that, I just don't know what it is".
In other words, " Don't confuse me with facts".
Nope, it won’t take decades to recover!!! Why??? If we put all these America destroyers and haters out of business, America will bounce back to the top in just a few years (3-4). Obama and his minions want to take America down and destroy her, and....he is doing a terrific job across the board!!! But.....if the American dream is to rebound, Obama and his economy destroying union buddies and America haters must go!!! Wake-uip out there Americans. Your future is at stake, Shucks, our country’s future is at stake!!!
And therein lies the problem.....
This country has fallen so far from it's ideals that I am afraid it is hopeless. These are the people that continue to send politicians to Washington to demand more of 'OPM' (other peoples money).
It is hard to get angry with the Tea Party people when you are face to face with them. In all cases they are civil and knowledgeable. Hacks like Letterman are forced into civility for fear of looking like the deranged people they paint the TP people as behind their backs.
The host is shockingly shallow. Paul did very well. He did not, however, speak of privatization of all schools. Maybe he thinks this too radical an idea and mentioning it would do more harm than good?
Rand Paul is the best political donation I have ever made.
The policies the left support hurt the poor and they don’t even know why, its so sad.
Increases taxes and regulations, reduces jobs for the poor.
Increasing government spending, leads to borrowing money from the rich and paying them interest, which leads to the fed printing more money creating inflation which hurt the poor
In one hand, the governmnet give out a $100 to a poor and pat themselves for job well done, while they ignore their other hand that takes the $100 away
The government is great at breaking someone’s leg then giving them a crutch. See, without me, you couldn’t walk
Free food, free housing, free utilities, free cable, free cell phones, free 24/7 access to the emergency room to dope up the kids when they won't sleep .... You have to admit it takes some hard work to convince them they are not being helped.
