Rand Paul: Obama Embroiled In ‘Old MacDonald’s Farm’ Of Scandals
“Here a scandal, there a scandal, everywhere a scandal”
May 24, 2013
Senator Rand Paul hit out yesterday at the White House and the president himself regarding his handling of the triple whammy of scandals his administration has become embroiled in.
“We have sort of an ‘Old MacDonald Farm’ of scandals—here a scandal, there a scandal, everywhere a scandal,” Paul said during a Fox News appearance.
“We’re not sure which scandal to even talk about,” Paul noted, referring to the fallout from the Benghazi consulate attack, the targeting of journalists and DOJ seizure of media phone records, and the potentially illegal targeting of patriot groups and Tea Party organizations by the IRS.
Responding to Obama’s national security address from the National Defense University at Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, Paul described it as “a misdirection campaign,” noting that it amounted to a failed attempt to downplay the severity of the mire that the administration is in.
“I don’t think this will work because he is putting off really the ultimate reckoning,” Paul said.
“He’s saying in 30 days we’ll do this and 90 days we’ll do this. The IRS scandal has been going on for over a year. The report is out there. I think they know who is responsible but he is not getting anybody,” he continued.
