GAP FILLING Last week Senator John Mccain, the .1. Republican presidential nominee in 2008, said he was encouraging his .2. friend to run and joked that Graham was his illegitimate son. "The good news is that I guess I'm in John's will and can get part of the estate," Graham said. Graham has a reputation as .3. hawkish on military intervention abroad but has also come under fire from the Republican Party's more conservative factions for working with Democrats on issues such as immigration and .4. change. The Republican field to succeed President Barack Obama potentially includes 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former governors Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee, Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and former .5.

Bloomberg: Hagel Resigns as Defense Chief Amid White House Tensions Nov. 24 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel talk about Hagel's decision to step down after 21 months in the Pentagon post. (Source: Bloomberg) U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down from his post after 21 months in office amid tension with the White House over strategy and the rise of new security challenges to the country. President Barack Obama called the 68-year-old Hagel a steady hand at the Defense Department during a time of change, with the U.S. winding down its presence in Afghanistan, confronting new threats from the terrorist Islamic State group, and dealing with a strained defense budget. Obama said Hagel approached him last month to discuss his role in the final two years of the administration. The two came to agree “that having guided the department through this transition, it was an appropriate time for him to complete his service,” he said. The president’s aides and def ...

"It is reprehensible to send troops into a country where there is no exit strategy." Mid East experts on coming US invasion of Syria. We only see and talk about the military solution. The POLITICAL solution, to problems in Syria and Iraq is the issue. Our military machine will do nothing to address that. (MSNBC) Congress just went home for 7 weeks to campaign for themselves. President Barack Obama is still waiting for Congressional authorization to use force in Syria. AUMF, written Sept. 18. 2001, is the authorization Obama is using now. "It's too politically contentious to do now" - is Congresses answer. They complain, but they will not vote. That is your Congress. Rand Paul is not an interventionist - therefore, GOP Neo-Con Conservatives hate him, and Presidential Primary Republicans will trash him in debates. He, of course, is right. Expecting a military solution to a political problem is - always has been - and always will be a disaster in the making. (BB)

Don't ever let it be said that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul isn't willing to play the game, because here he is obediently parroting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's absurd claim that Kynect, Kentucky's new health insurance marketplace, has nothing to do with repealing Obamacare: Saying he favors a full repeal of "Obamacare" but citing a "technical question," U.S. Sen. Rand Paul on Friday gave cover to U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a week after McConnell said Kynect and the federal law are not connected. Paul, talking to reporters after speaking at an event in Frankfort, said he wasn't sure whether Kynect, Kentucky's implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law, should be dismantled, saying there were far bigger questions that make a simple answer impossible.

Who is the obstructionists in Congress. Senator Harry Reid and President Barack Obama have said the Republicans are, but Senator Rand Paul introduced S. 2062, the Constitutional Check and Balance Act on February 27, 2014. The bill was placed on the Senate Legislative Calendar under General Orders. Senator Reid has thus failed to bring to the Senate floor for consideration. For some reason I believe lies have been told regarding Republicans as the obstructionists in Congress. It seems to me that Harry Reid and his puppets have that privilege.

NO No No! Washington, DC — President Barack Obama shocked the country this morning with news that he is running for a third term. “I can’t abandon the American people now when they need me more than ever,” Obama told reporters at a press conference this morning. “We’ve come this far as a nation, now is not the time to do something different. This is the change you wanted and this is the change you’re getting.” Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky told CNN he does not agree with Obama and his announcement. “This defies everything the Constitution stands for,” Paul said. “We can not let this man have a third term.” In the history of this country only two presidents have served more than two terms, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D, Roosevelt. The major problem for Obama when he runs in 2016, is the 22nd Amendment. In short, the 22nd Amendment states, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice…” The U.S. Constitution does make an exception in the 22nd Am ...
The White House will not appeal a federal court's order to release the memo outlining the administration's legal arguments for the use of lethal drone strikes against American citizens. The announcement was made Tuesday on the eve of a key Senate vote. David Barron, President Barack Obama's nominee for a seat on the US Court of Appeals, cleared a procedural Senate vote Wednesday. Voting 52 to 43, Barron will now proceed to a formal confirmation vote. Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky voiced his opposition, saying anyone who argues the president has the power to kill an American citizen without trial "is not worthy of being placed one step away from the Supreme Court."

Rand Paul: Obama Is 'Shredding The Constitution' The Huffington Post03/07/14 04:11 PM ET NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. -- Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) fired up a supportive crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday with a staunch defense of civil liberties. Speaking on his hallmark issues, such as the National Security Agency's widespread surveillance tactics and targeted killings of Americans overseas, Paul argued that President Barack Obama was "shredding the Constitution." "As our voices rise in protest, the NSA monitors your every phone call. If you have a cell phone, you are under surveillance," Paul said. "I believe what you do on your cell phone is none of their *** business!" The standing room-only crowd seemed to hang on to every word. When Paul raised what he called the "profound constitutional question" of whether a single warrant could be applied to millions of Americans' phone records, the audience screamed, "No!" When Paul asked how history would remember Obama -- under whom the NSA's s ...

WHY: FreedomWorks believes that Fourth Amendment protection from warrantless searches and seizures by government applies to every American citizen. The NSA spying program is the largest warrantless gathering of citizen’s private information in American history. It’s time to put this issue before the courts.

CONGRESSMAN STOCKMAN CALLS OUT LINDSAY GRAHAM AND JOHN CORNYN Karl Dickey Texas Republican Congressman Steve Stockman announced Wednesday, January 8, 2014 that he is organizing opposition to an anti-gun control bill which is expected to be soon filed by U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Lindsay Graham, which appears to closely follow an Executive Order issued last Friday by President Barack Obama. The "Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act" would have the same effect of President Obama's Executive Order we wrote about yesterday, which expands the NICS to include Americans who have either been treated or visited a mental health professional. In its current form, we understand it does not distinguish if the veteran or civilian was deemed a danger to them self or to the public, just would be denied their Second Amendment right for visiting a mental health professional. When the actual bill is filed, we will report again as to its affects, however we do have the outline described by Graham a ...

Nominated by President Barack Obama to succeed Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke when his term expires in January, Yellen will have to endure plenty of heated anti-Fed rhetoric from Republicans on Thursday, when she appears before the Senate Banking Committee.

He IS A RINO!!! Breaking News from Newsmax.com Despite Easy Win, Christie Still at War With GOP Base By John Gizzi By winning Tuesday night in a landslide election for his second term as governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie moved so far to the left, it may be difficult for him to win the Republican nomination for president come 2016. The GOP governor won in one of the bluest states — where President Barack Obama beat Republican Mitt Romney by 18 points in 2012. To win, Christie had to morph close to not only blue-state values and views, but become close to Obama himself — and he did just that. Key positions Christie has taken in New Jersey — backing Al Gore's view that global warming is "for real" and caused by humans; his public slamming of the National Rifle Association and conservatives such as GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky; his acquiescence to *** marriage — all will come back to haunt him in what likely will be a fierce Republican primary fight ahead. Editor's Note: Govt Prohibited From He ...

Marco Rubio Rewrites Government Shutdown History WASHINGTON -- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Sunday attempted to distance himself from the government shutdown strategy he and other potential GOP presidential candidates in the Senate pursued for much of the summer, arguing that blame for the shutdown rests with President Barack Obama. "I was never in favor of shutting down the government or of defunding the government. I was in favor of voting to fund the government fully," Rubio said on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace. "The only thing I didn't want to see is us wasting any more money on Obamacare, which is already a disaster." Rubio, along with Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.), led the Senate-side GOP push for the government shutdown strategy. Over the summer, Rubio refused to back any funding package for the federal government that would allow the health care law to go into effect. Absent a funding bill, the government would be forced to shut down.

Western secret services created al-Qaeda to attack enemies of Israel.   Western secret services have created the al-Qaeda terrorist group to protect Israeli interests and justify military intervention in other countries, a political analyst says.   “The whole story of the so-called war on terror is not what we’ve been told. It’s not as strange as it may seem that the US would bomb Syria for al-Qaeda,” Dr. Kevin Barrett told Press TV on Wednesday.   He made the comments after Senator Rand Paul criticized President Barack Obama for asking Americans to be “allies with al-Qaeda” twelve years after the 9/11 attacks.   “Twelve years after we were attacked by al-Qaeda, 12 years after 3,000 Americans were killed by al-Qaeda, President Obama now asks us to be allies with al-Qaeda,” Paul said on Tuesday, referring to Washington’s military strike plan for Syria, where al-Qaeda-affiliated groups are fighting against the Syrian government.   “Al-Qaeda is the main foreign intelligence o ...
Rand Paul: Force John Roberts Into Obamacare Tuesday, 24 Sep 2013 02:09 PM By Andrea Billups Share: More . . . A A | Email Us | Print | Forward Article 0 inShare Chief Justice John Roberts is such a fan of President Barack Obama's healthcare plan he should not be prevented from receiving its benefits, Sen. Rand Paul says. And now Paul is planning to introduce a constitutional amendment to ensure that Roberts — and all other federal employees — are forced into the Obamacare system. "My amendment says basically that everybody including Justice Roberts — who seems to be such a fan of Obamacare — gets it too," the Kentucky Senator told the Daily Caller. Editor's Note: Should ObamaCare Be Defunded? Vote in Urgent National Poll Roberts cast the deciding vote in June 2012 that allowed nearly all of Obamacare to stand. The four other Supreme Court justices normally considered conservative all voted against. Now Paul wants to outlaw all exemptions, including for members of Congress, making sure taxpa ...

President Barack Obama has defended newly revealed US government phone and internet surveillance programmes, saying they are closely overseen by Congress and the courts. Mr Obama said his administration had struck "the right balance" between security and privacy. He also stressed US internet communications of US citizens and residents were not targeted. And he tried to reassure the US "nobody is listening to your phone calls". Mr Obama was commenting on revelations this week in the Guardian and Washington Post newspapers that the US National Security Agency (NSA) was collecting or tapping into vast amounts of telephone and internet communications data. 'Healthy scepticism' The news accounts - subsequently confirmed by officials - roiled Washington DC, with privacy advocates criticising the surveillance as an unlawful intrusion and many in Congress defending the programmes as appropriate counter-terrorism tools.

President Mitt Romney 2012 Romney Re-Emerges Into Political Arena; First Appearance Set for This Week Mitt Romney is expected to start a series of high-profile appearances again next week. Romney took about six months off away from the public eye. But now, analysts say Romney's looking for ways to shape the national agenda. Romney told the Wall Street Journal he plans to re-emerge in ways that will "help shape national priorities." His first step is at a three-day summit in Deer Valley called Solamere, which will take place from June 4-8 in Park City. Even though he's been out of the spotlight, chances are high that Romney is still sharply critical of President Barack Obama's second term. Romney told the Wall Street Journal that he plans to be a little "nostalgic" about his campaign next week. At Deer Valley's Stein Erickson lodge, Romney will start to talk in broad terms about where the national agenda ought to be headed. He has a powerful and important voice. And I think it's great that he's once again ...

Obama: No President Should 'Deploy Armed Drones Over U.S. Soil' Obama says no president should authorize use of drone strikes in U.S. President Barack Obama unequivocally said he does not support government use of armed drones on American soil. [BROWSE: Political Cartoons on President Obama's Drone Policy] In his first extensive remarks surrounding the secretive drone program, the president said he recently declassified the poorly-kept secret that four U.S. citizens had been killed in drone strikes overseas in order to "dismiss some of the outlandish claims" surrounding drones. "For the record, I do not believe it would be constitutional for the government to target and kill any U.S. citizen – with a drone, or a shotgun – without due process. Nor should any president deploy armed drones over U.S. soil," he said. That question became the basis for Sen. Rand Paul's nearly 13-hour filibuster of the confirmation of John Brennan as the new director of the Central Intelligence Agency after Attorney General ...
QPOLL (Iowa. 5/24) Iowa voters favor Hillary Clinton (48%) over Republican Marco Rubio (37%) or Rand Paul (Clinton 46%, Paul 42%). VP Joseph Biden trails Paul (39-44) who has a lot of name recognition based on his father who was very popular last election in Iowa (partly because of the structure and low overall importance of Iowa's straw poll). Biden ties Rubio (39,40). Iowa voters disapprove 50 - 45 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing. Sen. Tom Harkin's (Iowa) seat is up for grabs as he has said he will not seek reelection. All of those who have expressed an interest are unknown by Iowa voters--more than half don't know enough about any of them to have an opinion.

Dear Sandy, Lobster Thermidor with a white wine saffron galcage and herbed baby potatoes: $85 Moulard Duck Breast: $85 Filet of Beef with truffled potato mouselline, bone marrow and Madeira Jus: $85 That's what President Barack Obama and big spending Republicans Lindsey Graham and John Mccain had to choose from at their dinner Wednesday night as Rand Paul was eating a candy bar while leading his historic filibuster. But for President Obama and Senators McCain and Graham, it was really you and me who were on the menu. You see, the reason Barack Obama had dinner with establishment Republicans was to ask their support for replacing the so-called "sequestration spending cuts" with massive tax hikes. And according to White House sources, if Obama will help John Mccain and Lindsey Graham ram through their National ID bill under the guise of "immigration reform," they'll help him get whatever tax hikes he wants. Sandy, the battle lines have never been set any more clearly than they are right now. I can hardly im ...

To ardent Ron Paul legions who energized his bid for the presidency around his libertarian principles, Rand Paul reflected a corrupt, business-as-usual political system -- one that asked people to compromise their beliefs in the quest for power. They saw Ron Paul, a former Texas congressman, rising above that until this week when Rand Paul, the Kentucky Senator who is viewed as a potential presidential candidate in 2016, blazed his own path toward their hearts and minds. He appealed to civil libertarians at their core by challenging the White House nominee to head the CIA, and pushing the Obama administration to clarify -- not once, but twice -- its policy on targeting Americans in counter-terror operations with lethal force. He threw the faithful a healthy portion of red political meat with a 13-hour filibuster over John Brennan, who was confirmed to the CIA post on Thursday. Brennan was President Barack Obama's chief counter-terrorism adviser. Rand Paul highlighted his dissatisfaction with the response ...
McCain, Graham condemn Rand Paul filibuster While many Republican Senators joined Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) 13-hour filibuster Wednesday to demand President Barack Obama or Eric Holder state in writing that the administration would not unilaterally bomb non-combatant American citizens, Sen. John Mccain (R-Ariz.) sided against Paul’s filibuster on Thursday morning, condemning the marathon talk as not “helpful to the American people” — even though it led to Paul getting an answer from the White House. The Arizona Senator said on the Senate floor that Paul “should know better” and called his concern ”unfounded.” “Somehow to allege that the United States of America, our government, would drop a drone Hellfire missile on Jane Fonda borders on the ridiculous,” McCain said, referencing an imaginary example of an unconstitutional drone strike that was repeatedly used by Paul in his filibuster. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also criticized Paul, saying that although he did not support President ...

"I will speak until I can no longer speak," Sen. Rand Paul said as he mounted a self-described filibuster Wednesday to block Senate confirmation of John Brennan to take over as director of the CIA. The Kentucky Senator, who is the son of former Texas congressman and libertarian leader Ron Paul, offered to cease if President Barack Obama or Attorney General Eric Holder issued a statement assuring that drones would not be used in the United States to kill terrorism suspects who are U.S. citizens. The filibuster started just before noon and went deep into the night. For more on this story:
WASHINGTON, March 07, 2013 A Republican Senator seeking to block President Barack Obama's pick to lead the CIA over concerns about drone strikes on US soil completed a nearly 13-hour speaking filibuster early Thursday. In a remarkable display highlighting the partisan rift in Washington, Rand Paul led the filibuster of John Brennan's appointment after the White House refused to unequivocally rule out drone strikes on US soil. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, tried to bring the blocking tactic to a close, but Paul, a favorite of the Republican Party's conservative Tea Party faction, refused to stop. His oratory held up any other Senate action as he railed against US policy on targeted killings from just before noon (1700 GMT) Wednesday until nearly 1:00 am (0600 GMT) Thursday. During the marathon delaying tactic, Paul said he would be happy to yield the floor "if the president or the Attorney General will clarify that they are not going to kill non-combatants in America." The drone issue has ...
A passionate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) conducted an old-fashioned filibuster on the Senate floor Wednesday to halt the nomination of President Barack Obama's CIA director nominee John Brennan. But really, his filibuster was about the constitutional concerns surrounding potential drone strikes on Americ...
President Barack Obama could order the use of deadly force against an American inside the United States, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a letter to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) released Tuesday. Paul and other senators had asked various administration officials whether deadly drones strikes like the...
Only four Republicans crossed party lines Tuesday to approve President Barack Obama's defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, but no senator sparked more confusion than Kentucky's Rand Paul, a vocal critic of Hagel who nonetheless cast his vote in favor of the former Nebraska senator. Just hours afte...
Mere hours after Breitbart News published an excerpt from an interview with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in which he speculated that President Barack Obama would "prefer a different kind of constitution," one with a Bill of Rights based on the South African model, former Obama administration regulatory cza...
maybe someday you can grow up and be a medical doctor and be a gun spy for my government? Little did we know that when President Barack Obama signed the infamous Obamacare, that it would eventually be used to advance the President’s Gun-Control agenda? NOW, thanks to his 23 new Executive Orders, President Obama wants to use Medical Doctors to literally spy on patients with guns! President Obama last week issued 23 Executive Orders to bypass Congress and the American people, to further his anti-gun agenda. One of his brand-new Executive Orders reads: “Doctors and other mental health professionals play an important role in protecting the safety of their patients and the broader community by reporting direct and credible threats of violence to the authorities. But there is public confusion about whether federal law prohibits such reports about threats of violence. The Department of Health and Human Services is issuing a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits these report ...
Hah! Sen. Rand Paul Busts John Kerry: Do You Believe in Candidate or President Obama on War Powers Clause? (Video) Senator Rand Paul thumped Secretary of State nominee John Kerry today at his hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today. Right out of the blocks, Senator Paul stumped Genghis John with a question on the War Powers Clause of the US Constitution, “I believe in candidate Barack Obama who said in 2007 that the president doesn’t have the power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack. I’d like to know if you agree with me candidate Barack Obama or if you agree with President Barack Obama who took us to war in Libya without Congressional authority unilaterally?” Rand Paul then went to bust Kerry for double-standard on Libya and Cambodia. Paul was ready for the hearing unlike most of the other senators with the exception of Senator Marco Rubio (Video):
When Barack Obama implored Americans to "do the right thing" on gun restriction during a news conference this week, the "right thing" should have been obvious to everyone. Absolute moral authority -- it's the only way to go. If you fail to see the picture as clearly as the president, you may be an extremist or, more than likely, you're too feeble-minded to withstand the Jedi mind tricks employed by gun merchants or radio talk show hosts or the National Rifle Association or all those folks "ginning up fear" on the issue, according to a president who trots out 7-year-olds to shield him from debate. Now, the 23 executive orders President Barack Obama signed that are aimed at "reducing gun violence" could be considered, at worst, cynically political or, at best, completely useless. But the way Obama treats the process, children, the debate, the Constitution and the American people is another story. Sen. Rand Paul recently remarked that "someone who wants to bypass the Constitution, bypass Congress -- that's s ...
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will propose legislation early next week to "nullify" President Barack Obama's executive actions on guns, the senator announced on Fox News' "Hannity" Wednesday. Paul told host Sean Hannity that Obama's executive orders are a breach of constitutional separation of powers betw...
GOOD MORNING TO EVERYONE! News this morning is the word from the White House that President Barack Obama will nominate Chuck Hagel and John Brennan to the top spots in the Pentagon and at Langley, respectively. Hope Hodge will be doing analysis of both picks coming soon. John Gizzi spoke to several new members of Congress on Friday to get their take on the cliff deal. Who would have voted for it? Who would have not voted for it? It looks like there are strong batches of freshmen that share several similarities to their 2010 brethren. There are also a few links from around the web, including a report from Business Insider on Sen. Rand Paul's trip to Israel. Is it the start of his 2016 presidential campaign? Sounds like it. Talk to you all tomorrow, -- Adam Tragone, Managing Editor TODAY'S TOP STORIES
Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) is getting some last-minute support from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the libertarian-leaning son of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). Politico reports that Paul is featured in a new robocall in which he touts Akin's conservative credentials and opposition to President Barack Obama's signat...
Rand Paul and Mitch Mcconnell, Kentucky's two U.S. senators, unloaded sharp criticism of President Barack Obama in their speeches Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention.
So the next question becomes: who will be Romney’s running mate? The fine folks at Bovada Sportsbook are one step ahead of the matter and have already come up with the odds: Who will be the Republican Vice Presidential Nominee? Marco Rubio - -2/1 Rob Portman - -3/1 Chris Christie - -9/1 Paul Ryan - -9/1 Bob McDonnell - -10/1 Susana Martinez - -15/1 Condoleezza Rice - -18/1 Rick Santorum - -18/1 John Thune - -20/1 Mitch Daniels - -20/1 Rand Paul - -20/1 Bobby Jindal - -25/1 Nikki Haley - -25/1 Tim Pawlenty - -25/1 Jeb Bush - -30/1 Newt Gingrich - -50/1 Ron Paul - -50/1 Sarah Palin - -50/1 Donald Trump - -100/1 Herman Cain - -100/1 Clearly, Marco Rubio and Rob Portman are the favorites but don’t be surprised if New Jersey Governor Chris Christie makes a push. He’s as honest as they come and he’s quite blunt. President Barack Obama has been questioned about his record and what he’s done over the last four years by Republicans and Christie will definitely not skirt that – or any other – topic. J ...
(CNSNews.com) - Speaking Saturday night at an event sponsored by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky expressed surprise that President Barack Obama would say that his support for same-sex marriage was rooted in the Bible.
On the one hand, you know you're in twubble when Tony Perkins is scolding you for (best-case scenario) being utterly tactless as a conservative SENATOR. On the other hand, anyone surprised the non-doctor has stepped in it again? DOSH-bag, lmao. Sen. Rand Paul's joke that President Barack Obama's views on marriage "couldn't get any gayer" doesn't get the support of a key evangelical leader. "I don't think it's a laughing matter," Family Research Council president Tony Perkins said. "I don't think this is something we should joke about. We are talking about individuals who feel very strongly one way or the other, and I think we should be civil, respectful, allowing all sides to have the debate. I'm glad that's what you're doing here this morning. But I think this is not something to laugh about. It's not something to poke fun at other people about. This is a very serious issue."
This is a Blessing to read! Rand Paul: There's a 'sickness' in the country By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 5/12/12 8:26 PM EDT Sen. Rand Paul, who's widely seen as a potential national figure whose father Ron's role in the GOP primary could ultimately boost, gave a heavily faith-based speech at an Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition event - in which he talked about government morality, his stand against abortion and President Obama's *** marriage evolution, via Patch: "There is a sickness out there that needs more than political leadership. It needs spiritual leadership," he said. "In that cause, I'll do the best that I can." Paul, the keynote speaker, went on: I tend not to wear my faith on my sleeve," he said, adding later that "I see decisions government makes almost always in moral terms." He spoke about his opposition to abortion and *** marriage, his fiscal conservativism and his opposition to war. His strongest partisan line was to criticize President Barack Obama's position on *** marriage. "He said that his vi ...
