Ted Cruz backing him up all the way. This could change everything.
That would be “stand”...not “stan”. Take your time here. It’s allowed.
I also happen to agree with your sentiment.
sticky key. in process of correction.
I like them...but they win by default even if I didn’t. Only 1 or 2 others in the party I even respect at all.
Not sure that makes it a game-changer as Brenner will be confirmed IMO. But Cruz has been on fire lately. I pray for him, the left will manufacture a scandal if they have to in order to take him down.
John with Lindsay and now Stan with Rand? Stan the Man. Who is Stan?
Has Palin weighed in?
In matters of style, swim with the current;
In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Would love to see her take a Stan. Oops Stand. :)
Looks like Cruz has a thick old book in front of him to quote from. I hope he stays at it all night. This is great.
I tuned in at Noon and have not left the room since. This is the kind of calm, thoughtful, principled leader America is hungering for. He could be the lynch pin that brings this communist regime down. God bless Ted Cruz, Pat Toomey, Cornyn, Chambliss(I can’t believe I’m saying that) and even Marco Rubio scurried over to get in the picture. Where was Mitch McConnell? MIA as usual.
Obama and Holder are going to live to regret this one.
Sarah Palin tweeted that she stands with Rand a couple of hours ago.
A couple of other notables are Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Herman Cain.
glorious bastard....I hope he and Cruz are energizer bunnies
Lots of tweets @BarackObama to man up and #standwithrand
Finally someone stood up to Obama. Truly the whole world is tuned in.
5 Hour Energy
Two if by tea
Just pickin’, as we say in the South....:)
I stand with Rand, but also with Cruz. He is on fire also, especially about presidential powers. FINALLY, there are some people standing up to Obama and his henchmen. I just hope it isn’t too late!
Cruz just mentioned... Starbucks too.
I know there are plenty of FReepers who thinks she’s Gods gift to conservatives.
But she’s a quitter.
Sure, she has her family to protect, blah, blah...she’s a quitter. Probably has the heart, but not the fortitude to be a leader. Not when it gets really, really, hard anyway.
I am down here too!
Chambliss surprised me, as well.
I’ve been listening to this most of the day, too, and no Limbaugh or Levin show could ever compare to the things Rand Paul has said today! It is/has been a proud day for Americans who have felt unrepresented, as well as insulted by this administration.
I e-mailed Chambliss and Isakson earlier urging them to support Rand Paul today.
Guess I owe Chambliss a “thank you” note, but am worried how he will vote in the end.
Indeed, it is so refreshing to see a few republicans who seem to be able to muster some testicular fortitude.
How horrible....he is a libertarian....he actually believes people should be able to live their lives as they choose without those on the left and right imposing their “righteousness”......that is crazy!
“This is not a right or left issue, weather a drone can be used in leathal force on american soil, against a non-combatant U.S. citizen, it is an American issue.” #standwithrand.
Why do you call Sarah a “quitter”?
She left the govenorship because she was inundated with the left’s CONSTANT court suits against her. I was under the impression she relinquished her position to save Alaska the trouble and expense of constantly having to defend herself against frivolous lawsuits.

Our new leaders are on the Senate floor tonight, taking Obama on. The emperor has no clothes.
It is 21:49, CST, here in Pineville, LA.
STAND WITH RAND.
Downthread there’s already a Palin headline, where the usual contingent of PDS faggots tend to do their trolling. How did you miss it?
$500,000 in legal bills and growing on a $130,000 salary would have bankrupted her family. The Palins would have lost EVERYTHING, what would you do? Her record of electing conservatives is better then anyone I can think of. Paul and Cruz would not be in the Senate if not for Palins’ support.
I sent Mr. Paul an email today thanking him for standing up for americans. I added NOW VOTE AGAINST THE CONFIRMATION. STOP THE COMMUNISTS !!
Save Alaska money against frivolous lawsuits.
And that is a quality of an entire nations leader? Nope..
If those lawsuits were so frivolous, she'd have faced them, if she were a leader, the people of Alaska would be glad to defend her no matter the cost. - for COUNTRY.
A nations leader doesn't worry about just one state.
Not sayin’ I blame her, but Palin is Not a Leader.
That is one of the most debunked memes ever posted on Free Republic - and I do mean thousands of times. I can't even believe you'd repeat it here.
Either look up the facts about it, or willingly choose to carry the left's water.
I don’t know what a PDS faggot is, so, if you are calling me one, please clarify.
I don’t know about Paul, but Cruz had the full support of the majority of Texans, TEXANS put him in office. We didn’t need Sarah to tell us how to vote.
Btw, I’m not saying Palin is horrible, she’s just not a leader. She can’t take the heat...for whatever reason.
Sarah is loved because, face it, she was supposed to be what salvaged MCCain.
Think about who MCcain is, how we feel about him.....Sarah, was McCains Running Mate.
Not only that, a judge ruled that her defense fund was illegal. Those lawsuits were mounting up into the millions of dollars, and were threatening to bankrupt her family.
On top of that, they were coming in at such a furious pace that she and her staff weren't able to conduct the people's business.
I'm literally stunned that some on our side are still buying into the left-wing lie that "she's a quitter". They need to read her book, "Going Rogue", to get the facts about her resignation from the Governorship.
A couple more hours he he will top Hugo Chavez.
Yeah, George Washington was quitter too. Kept running from those fights that would cost more than they were worth. Ended up picking his fights pretty well in the end. Say, sounds like Palin might be borrowing from that playback. Nah, can’t be .....
I have a man crush on Ted Cruz right now. This is what a filibuster is supposed to be.
Underlined in bold, for emphasis!
Hey, I don’t blame her. It wouldn’t be worth it to me either.
But that is not the quality of a leader.
Hang on to her, think she is your salvation.
But answer me this. We’re the hell has she been, huh?
As to your comment "If those lawsuits were so frivolous, she'd have faced them..." She did face them, bu it wasn't about the cases themselves, but the enormous amounts of involved -- lawyer fees, deposition fees, court costs, etc. And, if I recall correctly, Alaska is unique in that the state doesn't pay these costs for its elected officials -- the Palins were responsible for them. (Someone please correct if this is wrong -- memory's not what it used to be.)
Well, if one takes note of the prominent GOP-E Palin-bashers, who rush to the media to constantly dump on her utilizing the memes of their buddies in the liberal media, one starts to quickly note that these are the same exact GOP-er’s that proclaim the Party needs to drop social issues and “go gay” and endorse homo marriage. Whatta coincidence. Yep, the PDS faggot brigade, always reporting for dooty.
Sarah helped Cruz greatly in Texas, I know because I was on the fence. Dan Patrick whom I greatly respect was all in for Dewhurst. I decided to trust Sarah and vote Cruz. I am very happy I did.
You truly can’t figure out what pds is? Really?
Here, let me help ya out - pds = palin derangement syndrome.
Really not that hard to figure out.
DON’T HIJACK THIS THREAD WITH GARBAGE; LET’S ENJOY OUR BRAVE MEN STANDING Up FOR US!!!
Mike Lee (Utah) was on earlier.
