Rand Paul: Obama Losing Moral Authority To Lead
Due process is not looking at “Flash Cards and a Power Point Presentation”
May 27, 2013
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul did not let up over the weekend in his public vilification of the Obama administration with regards to inaction over the scandals the president is facing.
Appearing on ABC’s This Week, Paul asserted that if Obama continues to skirt around the edges of the issues without taking any decisive action, he will lose any moral authority that he still has left as a leader.
“I don’t know whether people were targeted for conservative religious values or just conservative political values and sometimes there’s an overlap,” Paul said.
“I think we have to get to the bottom of this. I think the constellation of these three scandals ongoing really takes away from the president’s moral authority to lead the nation.”
“Nobody questions his legal authority, but I think he’s really losing the moral authority to lead this nation. And he really needs to put a stop to this. I don’t care whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, nobody likes to see the opposite party punishing you for your political beliefs.” the Senator added.
“The main woman from the IRS that’s involved has taken the Fifth Amendment,” Paul said.
