During the debate on the continuation of the Patriot Act, Rand Paul uttered this gem concerning his colleagues in Washington:
Some of them, I think, secretly want there to be an attack on the United States so they can blame it on me.
Yes, that’s right. The entire American political establishment is counting down the days to the next terrorist attack so they can blame Rand Paul for it. The Republican Congress sets its agenda around his moods.
Rand Paul really needs to get over himself.
Today, Paul did soften his stance somewhat during an appearance on FNC claiming, “I think sometimes in the heat of battle, hyperbole can get the better of anyone. And that may be the problem there.”
No, the problem here is Rand Paul. After Paul went off on Savannah Guthrie on Today back in April, he sheepishly told Megyn Kelly, “I do lose my cool, and I do lose my temper sometimes, and I should be better at that, but the thing is you don’t get any visual clues.”
It doesn’t take much for Rand Paul to lose his temper in the heat of battle. If Paul loses his cool with Savannah Guthrie and can’t endure a tongue lashing from Mitch McConnell then what chance does he have against Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping or the Iranian Mullahs?
For nearly 6 ½ years, we have had to endure a thin skinned dilettante with an ego expanding faster than the federal government living in the White House. We do not need another.
