Rand Paul excited conservatives, libertarians, and even some liberals with his filibuster performance on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday. It was some 13 hours of a discussion on Obama’s desire to use drones to kill Americans here at home. Unfortunately, there were seven Republicans Senators that decided it was a better idea to eat dinner with the odious Obama instead of assisting Rand Paul. Worse, two Republicans actually denounced Paul’s efforts. All these Senators need to be gotten rid of.
Rand Paul used the debate about the nomination of John Brennan as his “in” to begin his filibuster. Obama offered the nomination of Brennan as his next CIA chief and Paul used his turn to speak about Brennan as a launching pad to force Obama and the CIA to agree not to kill Americans with domestic drone strikes without trail, warrant, or arrest.
The excitement from rank and file GOPers hungry for some kind of victory was tremendous. Unfortunately, two foolish GOP Senators actually denounced Rand Paul for his successful and exciting effort.
The bobbsey twins, John McCain (Ariz) and his lapdog Lindsay Graham (So. Car.) actually attacked Paul for his filibuster. John McLame, for instance, called Paul “ridiculous.”

On Wednesday, November 14, President Obama held his first full-scale press conference and despite continuing to speak in generalities, Reuters was somehow impressed by the supposed revelation of his second-term agenda. The President was “feisty” yet “conciliatory,” Reuters claimed.
Reuters was so gratified that Obama gave a “feisty defense” of U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice that it led its piece with that part of the presser. It was Rice who was one of the loudest, early voices claiming that the attacks in Benghazi that killed four Americans was the result of some unknown Youtube video — a claim solidly proven false soon after the attacks occurred.
During the presser, it was mentioned to the President that several Republican Senators vowed that if Obama offered up Rice as a candidate for Secretary of State in the stead of the departing Hillary Clinton, they would work to oppose the pick. Obama’s defense of Ambassador Rice was so strong one would think she might be a delicate flower that needs a strong man to come to her rescue.
