Rand Paul to deliver ‘tea party’ response to Obama’s State of the Union

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/rand-paul-deliver-tea-party-response-obama-state-205223117--election.html

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul will deliver his own public "tea party" response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address on Tuesday night that will stream live online, the Tea Party Express announced Friday.

Paul formed the Senate Tea Party Caucus in 2010 and continues to be one of the movement's most vocal proponents in the chamber. He will deliver his remarks from the National Press Club in Washington D.C. immediately after Florida Sen. Marco Rubio gives the official Republican Party response from Capitol Hill.

“We are happy to see that the Republicans have selected Tea Party conservative Senator Marco Rubio to deliver their response," said Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer in a written statement. "Both Senator Rubio and Senator Paul will articulate pro-growth messages that will resonate with the American people."

The group began sponsoring "tea party" responses to Obama's State of the Union Address in 2011, when Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann gave a speech that was televised on CNN. In 2012, the organization chose former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.

Obama's address is scheduled for 9:00 PM Tuesday.

1. I really wish the media would start nailing some of these chameleons down...

It gets old seeing Paul change his republican/teabagger/pseudo-libertarian labels every time he makes an appearance...

2. Dear Sen Paul (who will never be President):

This "Tea Party" you're so proud of your affiliation with. Who is in charge of it? Who signs the checks? How can one switch their "party affiliation" to it?

Until you can answer these questions, go pound salt, you fake ophthamologist...

4. You gotta love that there are two parties on the republican side

 

May Rand be their Nader.

btw, I won't be watching either Rand or Rubio.

Is Rand going to be dressed all spiffy in confederate grey, surrounded by the John Birch Society?

9. Wait wut??

I thought Nader was a Republican. Maybe Nader should give the third Repub reply.

"All the parties are the same. Yada yada yada. Blah Blah Blah"

Go the fuck away, Ralphie.

5. Rubio is giving the Gooper response. Isn't he a teabagger also?

So why do they need another? Or is Rand Paul just being mavericky?

10. The Tea Party crowd is really pushing this guy out front and center.

It's not going to help. He'll never be their nominee, although he thinks that he's presidential material. Remember his supremely arrogant comment about firing Hillary if he had been president?

As if....................

Dream on Randy!!! The only way that you'll get into the WH is if you take a tour.

15. The Republicans think their message is so weak, they need TWO responses?

Does this mean we get to have Bernie Sanders give the response to their responses?

18. I hope the TV networks cover the tea party response.



The last time only CNN did.



Let America see, there is the united Democratic Party, the fractured, hijacked Republican Party, and the right wing loons called the Tea Party.

21. Why does the Rs get to have two people respond to the state of the union address. The tea party is

not a 3rd party; it is part of the Rs. So the next time there is a R president (God help us) the democrats should have two responses: the liberals and moderates; one democrat response and one black caucus response; or whatever as long as we have 2 responses like the Rs are doing.
