Rand Paul Praises Navy SEAL Chris Kyle as a Hero

I wish Rand Paul wouldn't confer the title hero to everyone who serves in the military. It does a disservice to real heroes and gives the rotten apples who are in the military an appellation they don't deserve.

In light of the fallout over former Rep. Ron Paul's asinine statements about murdered Navy SEAL Chris Kyle yesterday, Senator Rand Paul told Breitbart the following:

“Chris Kyle was a hero like all Americans who don the uniform to defend our country. Our prayers are with his family during this tragic time.”

Ron Paul doubled down on his statements from Twitter yesterday on his Facebook page:

As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences...
