Rand Paul filibusters Brennan nomination for CIA director

“I will speak today until the president responds and says, ‘No, we won’t kill Americans in cafes. No, we won’t 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.

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.

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.

This! How could he ever expect a satisfactory answer?

Nail on head. First time a fillibuster ever used for a nominee for a political stunt and entertainment for the base that wont change a damn thing.

You certainly have a good point. Nobody knows better than an Obama voter that you shouldn't believe a thing that he says.

Go rent "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" and stick it in your DVD player.

It's a great movie and it will help pass the time for you.
