I am liking Rand more and more each day. I have heard conflicting stories on his stance on immigration, but I honestly don’t care that much. At least he has the balls to stand up to the rats. Others in DC might be all there, but are quiet. This guy is a fighter, and I like that.

Rand :” “I believe in candidate Barack Obama who said in 2007 that the president doesn’t have the power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack. I’d like to know if you agree with me candidate Barack Obama or if you agree with President Barack Obama who took us to war in Libya without Congressional authority unilaterally?”...

He's definitely got better material on Kerry than he did on Clinton.

He's letting his questions hang Kerry rather than giving his own Speeches. That is the way to do it.

Everyone knows the candidate is never going to be the same as the elected official.

"Do You Believe in Candidate or President Obama on War Powers Clause?"

Kerry: I was against it before I was for it.

The traitor sailed through his confirmation and will replace the liar.

Rand Paul should know by now that, Obama will say anything to get elected or re-elected, but, will do something entirely different when in office. It’s about telling the people what they want to hear, then doing something quite different once elected. With democrats, it’s okay to lie, because, at the end of the day, it’s for the common good. Besides, most of the people are too ignorant to understand the issues, therefore, democrats are able to get away with all their lies and hypocrisy.

Why should Kerry care when the rest of the Senate and House apparently do not? They have collectively let the last several presidents involve us in wars and military actions with barely a peep.

Sadly there are but a few, less than a handful, of R’s, who are even remotely fit and capable of being seen participating in these congressional hearings and senate committee discussions.

It is clear to me that our man-on-the-street type representatives, good men and women, are outgunned, swept over entirely by a grand strategy coming out of the White House. Democrat representatives are even worse, serving only as brainless voice boxes for Reid, before they carry the vote, as the majority they most certainly are, in the senate.

After the deplorable showing of the R’s questioning Hillary, I don’t think we have a prayer of even keeping the House. Five hours of theater produced a solid victory for Hillary, who manhandled us and on live TV, stuffed her expert deflection down our throats.

Yes, in five hours, Rohrabacher and Johnson got off a few pertinent one liners, but the whole affair was sabotaged by the clock and the format, where unpracticed rookies were let loose to run out the clock, given the same weight as the experienced Rorhsbacher and Johnson.

It’s demoralizing and our time is short to develop competence.

Why is it that the GOPE are arming only Rand and Rubio? Are we being set up again for divide and conquer? Are there no debate strategies and in depth preparation for public platforms on purpose? How unprofessional. To be seen by the world endlessly flailing is shameful.

Disarray is our name now, but it’s all so inexcusable. There IS no plan.
