Paul filibusted and then voted for what he was filibusting. I hope history does not repeat itself.
Paul voted FOR drone strikes on U.S. citizens in America who weren’t a danger to the public safety at the time of a strike??
Uh, no he didn’t. There wasn’t a vote on that issue. Paul brought up that issue while a vote was pending on Brennan’s appt. to the CIA. So he refused to let the vote on that appt. go forward until the Justice Dept. and WH answered the question of whether such strikes would be constitutional, or not.
They did finally answer the question. Then the vote on Brennan was allowed to go forward.
Paul always said I’m using this as an opportunity to air this issue. I’m not filibustering to stop an Obama appt. from happening.
What part of that don’t you understand...
The media portrayed it as his filibustering Hagel’s nomination, a report undisputed by faux news.
The filibuster was what it was, what he was talking about, the drones. It was t get Holder to answer the question.
Paul said repeatedly, he wasn’t against the nomination. How could he be? who the heck else is BO going to nominate? His list gets worse as he goes down the line.
What kind of patriot would want to be on his staff?
Paul is wrong on other things, that can be argued.
