Kentucky Senator Rand Paul covered a lot of ground today in his CPAC speech. He discussed, among other things, the real reason why he filibustered the president’s nominee for Defense Secretary, the absurdity of giving Egypt $250 million in foreign aid (a country known for burning U.S. flags and for its citizens chanting “death to America!”), the president’s politically-calculated decision to discontinue oh-so-expensive White House tours for America’s school children (even though he has no problem whatsoever subsidizing wasteful and frivolous government pork projects), and the importance of preserving and protecting the Second and Fourth Amendments.
Needless to say, his speech was a big hit. Enjoy:
For what it’s worth, the entire Townhall staff is on scene at CPAC this year. Stop by our booth and say hello if you’re in the area! We’re located right outside the main ballroom.
