President Paul Looking More Like A Possibility Every Day

April 18, 2013 by  

It looks as if Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is getting serious about a bid for the Presidency in 2016.

If the context clues (the drone filibuster, tough language aimed at the President and being a near-constant thorn in the side of both old guard Republicans and Congressional Democrats) weren’t enough, the Tea Party darling has clearly stated that he’s considering running for President in the next election.

“We’re considering it,” Paul told attendees at a recent breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, adding that his summer schedule is packed with visits to key primary States like Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.


The Senator said that, regardless of whether his team determines a Presidential run is viable, he will remain engaged in the conversation about issues of national importance. During the breakfast Wednesday, Paul touched on polarizing issues including gun control and immigration reform.

Paul said he believes that guns are a fair topic for political debate but lamented that the President’s politically opportunistic approach to forcing a gun-control debate following the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., was wrong. He also noted that much of the gun legislation being pushed would not solve the problem of mass shootings. Instead, he sides with the National Rifle Association’s suggestion that teachers should be encouraged to carry firearms.

The Senator also touted “trust, but verify” as a solution to immigration issues. The Paul immigration plan would put heavy focus on securing the U.S. border and avoid creating a “new pathway to citizenship” to make it easier for illegal aliens to remain in the country.
