    I don't know where you get the idea that I'm defending Obama. He's not even part of this discussion. This thread is discussing Rand Paul, no?

    Because you brought up holding people to higher standards. Politicians like Obama
    And others.
    I also said that there is a real reason that the left wing and right are attacking him and for me that's a good thing.
    We can have another Obushma
    Or another Hillchaney
    Not for me however. I want to hear what he has to say. Already heard the Obama lies and Hillary sympathizing BS
    And Cuz Holly BS.

    Not trying to go on the attack here, but it seems almost like you are deflecting from the flaws of your preferred candidate. I'm not an Obama supporter. Wasn't in 08, wasn't in '12, and I'm not now. So pointing at Obama and saying "oh, well he does it too" doesn't really do much for ya. I don't care. I know he's a flip flop, that's why I don't like him. This is a Rand Paul discussion thread, and Rand's frequent flip flops (usually in the realm of foreign policy) were brought up. Can you dispute the claims, justify the flip flops, or otherwise defend his actions without pointing fingers at other politicians? Or is this just the wrong thread for you? Cause I can direct you to an Obama bashing thread, there's plenty of 'em here.

    Pee wee was and is a better man than the Obama
    I think the leftist is against rand because rand questioned Obamas assassination of an American boy. Progressive don't like it when you question Obamas drone policies.

    Democrats are looking less and less enthused twith Mrs. Clinton. I don't know if she can "mop the floor" with anyone right now.

    If Clinton even gets the nomination, which isn't as inevitable as many would like to think, I can't really see her doing all that great. Especially if the GOP puts Jeb Bush or Rand Paul up. I could see her easily dispatching a far-right nutter like Ted Cruz, but I can't see her lasting against a more moderate candidate or, in the case of Paul, a candidate with positions to the left of her.

    Personally, I think a guy like Scott Walker would crush her in a debate on any issue.

    Democrats aren't the only ones! It would be nice to get a female candidate, but not Hillbilly. I do not trust her at all.

    The only problem is there is really only one plausible female that the GOP could put up, that being Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico. Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma has too much baggage to be considered for 2020. The problem is neither Governor has much desire for the White House or making a run.

    That'd be nice, but you and I both know we'll never get rid of the two party system no matter how hard we try.

    Not if people do their homework on 3rd party candidates and stop voting for the "lesser of two evils."

    That requires voters to do their homework before an election. Since when do voters do their homework?

    Agreed. They can never make up their minds, shifting from one candidate to another by their whims on no real substance. Glad someone agrees with me, finally!

    President doesn't have sole discretion over nukes though, so your argument is flawed. :)

    Hillary threw a book at Bill, all Bill tossed around was STDs.
