Rand Paul: ‘GOP of Old Grown Stale and Moss-Covered’

Filed under

“The GOP of old has grown stale and 
moss-covered,” Paul said. “I don’t think we need 
to name any names here, do we?”

Paul also offered an extensive defense of his 
13-hour filibuster last week ­ the same effort 
that drew the ire of McCain and Sen. Lindsey 
Graham (R-S.C.). Over the course of those 13 
hours, Paul pushed the Obama administration to 
clarify that it wouldn’t use drones against 
non-combatant U.S. citizens on American soil.

McCain and Graham suggested Paul’s effort 
amounted to pointless grandstanding, with Graham 
even labeling him “ill-informed.”

“To those who would dismiss this debate as 
frivolous, I say tell that to the heroic young 
men and 
who have sacrificed their limbs and lives,” Paul 
said. “Tell it to Sergeant J.D. Williams 
sacrificed himself to save his fellow soldiers. 
Tell J.D., who lost both legs and an arm; tell 
him his sacrifice was great but that we had to 
suspend the Bill of Rights he fought for.
