Last Ditch Efforts For Rand Paul?

by Ben Kamisar  |  published on January 14, 2016

Thursday will be a pivotal day in Rand Paul’s presidential bid: Either he will be absent from the second-to-last GOP debate before primary season begins or he will be on stage during the prime-time event in front of millions of eyeballs.

His fate comes down to whether Fox Business Network acquiesces to his plea to be included or whether he relents from his insistence that he will skip the undercard debate, which he was bumped down to after failing to meet the network’s criteria.

Paul argues that a poll released on Wednesday shows he should qualify despite the fact that it was released outside of the network’s window of consideration.

    Even if Rand Paul does not make the nomination is input is good. Leave him there.

  • Faithful American

    Both FOX BUSINESS Presidential Debates the other night were the BEST debates I have EVER seen in my 67 yrs.! We learned a LOT about ALL of the candidates but actually MORE from the LOWER TIER because EACH of them had more TIME to TALK.

    Goodbye Rand! We AREN’T INTERESTED in what you are trying to SELL!

  • 1josephg1

    Typical media bs. This is just another reason why dt or tc or rp or bc MUST be elected president.

    • 1EdMeadows83

      How ’bout good ol’ Mike Huckabee? That old religious nut should be right up your alley!

    You UTTERLY failed to answer my question. So perhaps you should try “thinking”. Or maybe “reading”. Is what you call “progressive” necessarily GOOD, in your twisted type thinking? No, you did not answer. You attacked.
    Because that is ALL so called progressives KNOW to do. Avoid the message at all costs. Try and sound intellectual. Don’t look any deeper into INTELLIGENCE. There is a vast, vast difference between the two. and the one that matters does not lie between one’s ears..
    And it does not matter how you twist it, the cart before the horse or the horse behind the cart. Because “regressive” isn’t necessarily good nor bad. Nor is progressive. We have “progressed” to our non firing brain cells—-present state, is that what you find so laudable about “progressives”? .

  • Mister Vice

    How can that moron Debbie Wasserman Schultz claim the Republicans have a diversity problem? WHAT!? Are you kidding me? We have a candidate of color, we have a woman,m we have TWO Cubans, we have politicians, we have CEOs from the private sector, we have evangelicals,have the wealthy rich, we have poor immigrant candidates, what are we missing? The Dems have Hillary and then they have Bernie Sanders, a blowhard socialist thrown in there to make it look like the Democrats have an open selection process. Sanders KNOWS he is only there to be Hillary’s straight man for her slick political jokes and to apologize to her for standing in her way. What a joke!

    • 1EdMeadows83

      Mister, I believe we also have an African American President also. Thank your God for that, he saved this country from going down the drain after the mess your president Bush left us in. Now we’ll have a woman President so we Progressives have covered all bases.

  • Hopinow

    So, according to you, PROGRESSIVE is good? But “regressive” or to return to the roots of intelligence, is “bad”? The constitution is simple–not at all hard to understand and comprehend. Is it “regressive”? Or, just not currently PC.? Which is it? You either know it or you do not. Paul has supported more constitutional behavior and constitutional bills than the whole lot. And for me, that is courageous. Courage is something the peoples of this country admired. You attack him personally, but would be hard pushed to attack his overall record.

    • 1EdMeadows83

      I realize you might be forced to think but, concentrate for a moment and contemplate. Democrats are PROGRESSIVE so it stands to reason that Republicans, the opposite of Democrats, are REGRESSIVE, the opposite of progressive. Think about it. If you are able.

      • James Jones

        The term is CONSERVATIVE That means they want to conserve what we have not squander it on stupid shit or creating problems that nee not be.

        • 1EdMeadows83

          No, no, Jimmy. The proper term is Regressive because you dolts want to take us back to the 19th century.

          • James Jones

            Better than down the toilet. Progress for the sake of progress is BS. Give me one legitimate reason we should be bowing to every sissy ass punk with a gripe.

          • 1EdMeadows83

            That’s a very profound statement that means absolutely nothing. I can’t even respond to such nonsense!

  • hoosier46

    Waa…..Waaa….Waaaa Please grow up Rand!

  • rockcut

    Does it really matter since Rand Paul is going nowhere and will not win the primaries.

    • Mister Vice

      Not to me. Apparently he is taking his run more seriously than anyone else.

      • rockcut

        From what I see of Paul he will not even come close to winning and will drop out after the first two primaries.

    • James Jones

      If people had half a brain he would be the choice of the people if for no other reason than supporting the Constitution and the bill of rights. The problem with you is you wouldn’t know a good President if it was sitting on your face which all you liberals would love.

  • Hopinow

    Rand Paul Is the ONLY candidate that knows and abides by the constitution, which is becoming VERY popular of late. He should definitely be in the debate.

    • 1EdMeadows83

      Rand Paul is only the first Republican candidate to contract that dread Regressive disease called stupidity. Others will fall.

      • James Jones

        You better pray to whatever god you have that Hillary isn’t elected. You will not see any glory you’ll be wishing that stupid bitch was never born she will sell you mother to a Muslim extremist so she can gain a nickle.

        • 1EdMeadows83

          I don’t have any god. I don’t need one. I’m not after any glory. All I want is a President that will properly serve the country. Ms. Clinton fills that bill.

          • James Jones

            That explains a lot about you Meadows. Where would this country be without god? Oh yeah right where all atheists and liberals want it to be in the crapper

          • 1EdMeadows83

            Jimmy, this country would be right where it is without God, for the simple reason there is no God and the country is where it is. You will lose any argument about religion with me because you can’t prove a Goddamned thing that’s in the bible or whatever your Mama told you. I don’t have to prove there’s no God because there’s no proof there is.

    • James Jones

      Ted Cruz is solid too.

      • 1EdMeadows83

        Yeah Jimmy, he’s as solid as your head. Solid granite.

        • James Jones

          Listen Fu%k head. I’d put my intelligence up against your any day of the week. Granite? Ya okay My College GPA is at 3.69. Where was yours? 1,0″ Eat shit Liberal puke.

          • 1EdMeadows83

            WOW! You just proved any moron can make any claim on the internet with no fear of being called out. I don’t put my educational level nor my IQ on sites, such as this for that reason. I have nothing to prove. You apparently do.

  • Mister Vice

    having two separate debates is counter productive and confusing. The candidates can not respond to each other directly in this manner.

  • jcadla

    I don’t see what difference it makes as to where someone is in the polls…for the debate, anyhow. The networks shouldn’t be allowed to run this mess. If the polls say it, Trump, Cruz and one more are in and the rest are out. The debates suck anyhow. How would Trump know as much about the federal trade laws and other things of which only the people involved know? But, let’s have a debate about closing a deal and creating jobs and repairing bridges and highways, etc. Sure…’duh’

    • 1EdMeadows83

      My goodness! I can’t believe I read a reasonable post on this fetid site. Mr. jcadia, this Liberal agrees with you wholeheartedly!

      • James Jones

        The name was jcadla not jcaldia are liberals not able to read? I do agree that all candidates should have an opportunity to speak to the issues but I really wish they would stick to what matters instead of the BS the media wants it to be about

        • 1EdMeadows83

          Jimmy you should learn to read before you expose how ignorant you are. I believe I spelled jcadia correctly IF he spelled it correctly.
