Mark Levin-endorsed conservative congressional candidate Liz Cheney is running for Wyoming’s only seat in Congress and Senator Rand Paul didn’t mince any words when asked about endorsing the daughter for former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney, who also served as a congressman from The Cowboy State.
In an interview on Sunday, Rand Paul seems to be holding the former Vice President accountable for the perceived sins of her father, in Paul’s view, lumping “The Cheneys” into the same mold as if Liz Cheney didn’t have any views of her own.
”We’ve had a discussion about basically what are the powers of the presidency – many Republicans will tell you that the Obama presidency has grown too large in its ability to consume new powers as far of regulations, but I think also the Obama presidency has consumed too much power with regard to war,” Paul told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “And I think the Cheneys have been largely in favor of more power for the presidency.”
“You’ll recall Dick Cheney’s quote back from early after 9/11 saying deficits don’t matter and I think really there is a difference in the party between big government Republicans – those not concerned with deficits – and with those of us that believe in the Constitution and think the government should be very small.”
Ironically, Rand Paul endorsed perhaps the biggest establishment RINO, pro-big government squish in America, Mitch McConnell , aka: “Obama’s Mitch, who has never seen a program of Obama’s he wouldn’t fund, nor has he seen a debt ceiling he wouldn’t raise.
Rand Paul endorsed Mitch McConnell despite reports that his fellow Kentucky senator was out to “crush” the pro-Constitution, pro-liberty Tea Party movement, the same movement that got Paul elected in 2010, a movement that believes in limited government and balanced budgets.
Where was Rand Paul’s outrage against McConnell when he was working to kill the Tea Party?
Instead of endorsing Liz Cheney, Rand Paul, who refused to endorse constitutional conservative Ted Cruz after Paul dropped out of the race, is throwing his support behind Leland Christiansen, Cheney’s opponent.
Whether Leland Christiansen would be a better representative and is a better conservative than Liz Cheney is debatable and is ultimately up to the people of Wyoming to decide.
But Rand Paul’s shameful endorsement of RINO Mitch McConnell, who stands against everything Rand Paul supposedly stands for, and whose criticisms against Dick Cheney could almost be used word-for-word against McConnell, means that Rand Paul has lost the moral authority to be endorsing anyone.
