@SenRandPaul Votes For #Hagel – #RandPaulFAIL
There was no erosion in Democratic support for the president’s choice and Hagel already had the backing of three Republicans — Sens. Thad Cochran, Mike Johanns and Richard Shelby. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., also switched to support Hagel in the final vote.
For the past number of months, Senator Rand Paul has been trying to position himself as the de facto leader of elected conservatives and Classical Liberals.
Example: He made a trip to Israel, where he seemed to be attempting to show that, unlike his Father, he was not an isolationist.
In a world beset by traitors to the Conservative / Classical Liberal Crusade, Mr. Paul was clearly aiming to shore up his bona fides with us.
With his vote to confirm Chuck Hagel as Secretary Of Defense, Rand Paul has shown that the fruit has not fallen far from the old fruit tree.
This was a major battle in the resistance to the forces of the Left In America who are trying [and, so far, succeeding] in turning the government of The United States into a banana republic and Paul took the side of Corruptocrats.
He voted for an ignorant man totally unqualified to be SecDef, whose views appear to be Anti-Semitic and who is pro-Muslim.
Paul’s reasons? Well…
Following the vote, Paul told reporters in the Capitol Building, “There are many things I disagree with Chuck Hagel on, there are many things I disagree with John Kerry on, there are very few things I agree with the president on, but the president gets to choose political appointees.” [via Twitchy]

The mask has been torn off another wolf in Common Sense clothing.
Rand Paul must be thrown into the elephant graveyard with all of the other faux fighters for freedom and liberty.
We’re in a situation where we really cannot afford to place much trust in any political figures, as we have had to learn again today.
We’re on our own.
