A lot of those guys showed up because their political futures may count on being seen with Rand Paul, even though they have no convictions.

Interesting that Marco Rubio supported Paul's filibuster...and then voted "yea" to seat Brennan.

Trying to have it both ways, Marco...???

McCain: “I don’t think - - - “

Yup, we know McCain, we know.

This does not even make sense.

I think what they are really upset about is that he stole the spotlight from them (which was already fading) in their role as the point men criticizing Obama over the Benghazi debacle. That’s pretty pathetic. Paul did not do that to them when that was at its peak and indeed even joined them. This is petty jealousy...and very disunifying at a moment when it appeared we may be starting to get our act together for once.

Paul is very much supporting his re-election - Paul’s former campaign manager is now McConnell’s campaign manager in fact.

I am watching the situation.

Rand Paul is fighting the liberal Republicans with that filibuster.

The old Rockefeller-Kissinger guys relabeled themselves “neocons” and have been pushing “New World Order” policies ever since.

Paul doesn’t go along with their vision of a “world order” led by the United States. Rand doesn’t agree with Obama’s vision of a “world order” led by the UN or international authority either.

But I’m not very excited about Rand wheeling and dealing his way into the presidency.

Sarah Palin is my first choice but if she got on Rand Paul’s bandwagon I would join her.

> “said Mr. McCain, Republicans’ presidential nominee in 2008 — who topped Mr. Paul’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, in that year’s primary. “

I do have to nitpick this, as it makes it seem like Ron Paul was a close runner-up. It’d be like saying Joe Montana “tops” Ryan Leaf in Superbowl victories.

McCain is EVERY BIT the enemy of America, as much as Obama is.

In 2008, we were given a choice.

One one hand, we could vote for bitter, nearly-insane lyng marxist idealogue, and a murdering friend of the Police State and tyrannical oppression.

Or, we could vote for Obama.

“I do not believe that question deserves an answer,” Mr. Graham said.

It absolutely deserved an answer, and the fact that the obama administration obfuscated for so long rather than answering the question is what should have offended you, Mr. Graham. The fact that you are more critical of your GOP colleague than you are of the administration's response demonstrates that you are part of the problem.
