Okay, so is this Rand Paul sizing up his competition and deciding to throw a stink bomb into the works?

Jealous. It’s fine for him to pull his little filibuster about something no one remembers, but this is a BIG moment for the U.S.A. and Rand Paul was no where to be seen. We won’t forget.

He was there, but his support seemed tepid at best, and his own words confirms this now.

It makes it look like it was a big PR stunt for Rand Paul to be there, on his part.

So, he stays for Cruz’s filibuster, and then votes for cloture? If I were his constituent I’d be mighty pissed off.

Don’t forget that Cruz voted for this too. 100 aye votes...

The big vote comes Saturday as I understand it.

We’ll see how it breaks out then.

I don’t care for his comment about ‘unfair’ at all. Good grief!

No, No. I’m not talking about today’s vote to proceed. I’m talking about cloture to end debate on Fri or Sat. I guess I’m reading this to mean Paul plans to vote FOR cloture (hence, as Cruz reiterated, a vote FOR OdingoCare).

It’s like this, GOP.

For any job or question or anything else in the future, if your name isn’t Ted Cruz, you need not apply.

Disappointing but no surprise at all. Rand is trying to position himself for the ‘16 run. Unfortunately, , he’s had a setback from THE potential challenger, Senator Ted Cruz.

No the vote was to bring the house bill to the floor for debate.
I am glad the senate is going to hash it out......will identify those who support the continued destruction of America.
fund the government not obamacare

Rand said that it will be contraproductive to shut down the government and try to blame Obama. Says that Obama would win on the issue.
Says soldiers wouldnt get paid in a shutdown.
Says calling those who wont filibuster the House defund bill who always voted against Obama-care appeasers is ‘unfair’

One by one they betray Ted, Looks like the summary executions will require lots more bullets (figuratively of course)

This tells me that Rand’s definitely running,

Time to take names and defeat these bastards.

Then again, with people like Rand Paul saying he’ll vote for cloture (something someone else mentioned), I’ve lost faith in being able to send in good people and expect them to “get it”.

The 100-0 vote was a vote to continue debate. A big nothing vote. Yes, Rand is jealous of TEd, I believe. Bob

Rand is pretty cool, but he’s not the White Knight we’re looking for. He does his own thing - sometimes that parallels my views and sometimes it really diverges.

I like his free-thinking - I hate his unpredictability.

Runt Paul is a LIBERALtarian and if he was honest about his views on the issues, couldn’t get elected to a local school board, much less Congress.

Rand Paul in his own words:

"And I think what a tragedy it would it would have been if he [Obama] had gone to prison. What a tragedy it would have been that America wouldn't have gotten to see Barack Obama as a leader."

Paul makes this assertion at the 4:50 mark of this damning video where he characterizes the _resident as a leader.

There seems to be a glaring ommission in your statement.

The enemy is both the DEMOCRAT PARTY and the GOP-E.

Or are you cool with the GOP-E and their dalliance with the Democrats?

As of Today, September 25th, 2013 Senator Ted Cruz from Texas offically because the Senate Republican Leader by his words and Deeds.

McConnell is a washed up foggy bottom swill sucker who has no spine to fight for the American People.

Cornyn is a middle of the Road finger sucking political wind seeker.

John McCain is completely Unstable and Insane. Drunk on his own power, spending the majority of his time washing Obama’s feet.

I urge EVERYONE to address Ted Cruz as the Leader of the Republican Party cause the others that have the title are too busy selling you out to look up to see the Cat. 5 Hurricane called ObamaCare about to hit land.

Take a jog over to McCain and McConnell’s facebook pages, along with Harry Reids. Then look at the comments on Ted Cruz’s.
