Rand Paul filibusters Brennan nomination for CIA director
 
I will speak today until the president responds and says, No, we wont kill Americans in cafes. No, we wont kill you at home at night, Mr. Paul said early on in the filibuster, which began at 11:47 a.m. and by early afternoon showed no signs of slowing down.

I have to say that I'm impressed with Rubio's support of Rand on this. I didn't expect it.

He is really droning on up there.

I can only talk so much Paul talk so I have it on in the other room. I walk in there every 30 mins or so and seems like I'm not missing much.

Just hate that whiny ass Paul voice.

Who cares about his voice - this isn't American Idol. The issue is important, and Obama is going to be forced to directly address it.

One by one, he's starting to pick up the support of his republican colleagues. This is great. Rubio, Cruz, and now Senator Saxby Chambliss coming to the floor to lend his voice. This is awesome.

Poor Reid. Tried to end run Paul and failed.

Most people think it is American Idol though....that's the problem.

If Rand Paul thinks the government is so awful that it is planning to assassinate people then why is he asking that government for reassurances that it won't?

I don't see how he could accept anything that the administration says on this topic as some reason to stop his filibuster because he should not be able to trust them if they are as awful as he seems to believe that they are.

Of course he may be merely performing a stunt.

Unfortunately.

It's not a bad stunt, though.

He's making some sense and entertaining me. That's more than I tend to expect from a politician.

DementedLogic 03-06-2013 05:10 PM

He is making some pretty good jabs. The terrorist Tuesday story was pretty entertaining.

Somebody get the good senator a Power Bar and a small cherry Gatorade.
