And you don’t think Rand and Ted “hang out”? Remember how brilliantly Ted supported Rand during Rand’s filibuster?

That’s nice, but why is Rand Paul hanging out with VERY liberal Dems now in a secret meeting rather than Cruz?

After all, Ted Cruz, way back in June said: “Don’t give weapons to people who hate us” (rebels in Syria)

“..While most of the Senate is debating immigration reform this afternoon, Sen. Ted Cruz took time to deliver an address on the Senate floor criticizing President Obama for his decision to intervene in Syria.

Cruz warned that there were elements of al Qaeda supporting the rebels and highlighted reports of desecrations of churches, kidnappings, rapes, and beheadings.

“These forces are engaged with a deadly struggle with the Assad regime and President Obama has chosen this moment to signal that it is now suddenly in our vital security interests to intervene in Syria,” Cruz said. “It seems far more likely a recipe for disaster.”’

TED CRUZ has been on this a long time, so shouldn’t Rand Paul support Cruz’s leadership?

A vote is a vote. That is why Rand is hanging out with even the repugnant Grayson in this secret meeting that we are all discussing very publicly. I would do the same thing, if it meant securing a vote against a Syria strike that could quite possibly blow up into a world war. Doesn't mean I love the guy or have to marry him. A vote is a vote, and in a chamber of only 100 senators, every single vote is precious.

"I believe RON Paul voted with Dems significantly more than he voted with Republicans."

Not true, Ron Paul has an 88% lifetime conservative rating.

“Coffee was provided, but most of the guests brought their own cups.”

Odd... why is this even mentioned?
