Rand Paul Gloats About Scott Walker Recall Win At CPAC Chicago
Source: Huffington Post (I won't link to that crappy site)
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) gloated about Republican Governor Scott Walker's "landslide" win in the Wisconsin recall elections while speaking at CPAC Chicago on Friday.
"Mr. President, did you hear Scott Walker won in a landslide?" Paul said, according to The Hill. "It's hard for me to say that without gloating."
Paul echoed the sentiments of many who believe Walker's defeat of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) set the stage for a tough 2012 presidential battle in the Badger State.
"I wonder if it worries anybody at Team Obama. I think it does," Paul said. "Scott Walker's victory should send a message to all politicians, especially some of those weak-kneed politicians in Washington, that you can stand on principle and get reelected."
The hypocrisy here is just stunning.SunSeeker (922 posts)
4. It's easy to stand on principle...
when you've outspent your opponent 10 to one, and the principles you're standing on are the marching orders of your oligarch benefactors.
