Rand Paul on ‘Hannity’: “Old MacDonald’s Farm of Scandals”

 

Rand PaulKentucky Sen. Rand Paul delved into the world of classic children’s nursery rhymes Thursday as he sang a revamped version of “Old MacDonald” on Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday night.

“We have sort of ‘Old MacDonald’s Farm’ of scandals – here a scandal, there a scandal, everywhere a scandal,” Paul told host Sean Hannity. “So we’re not sure which scandal to even talk about.”

The Republican senator was referring to the trifecta of controversies that have beleaguered the Obama Administration over the past few weeks. First, an ABC News report showed that the Administration had edited several of its talking points on the attack at the Libyan Embassy in Benghazi last September. Next came the Internal Revenue Service scandal, where top administrators acknowledged that they had been improperly targeting conservative organizations by applying extra scrutiny to their tax filings and holding up their applications for tax-exemption status. Just days later, the Associated Press announced that the Department of Justice had illegally subpoenaed the phone records of nearly two dozen reporters and editors for counterterrorism purposes.

Paul also noted that the current actions the Obama Administration is taking to get to the bottom of the various scandals aren’t working.

“I don’t think this will work because he is putting off really the ultimate reckoning,” he added. “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.”

Earlier in the day, Paul released a statement in response to the president’s major counterterrorism address from the National Defense University at Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. Paul has been one the leading advocates in Congress for the president to come clean on his Administration’s drone policy, and even launched a 13-hour filibuster on the subject back in March in trying to push things along.

“I’m glad the President finally acknowledged that American citizens deserve some form of due process,” Paul said. “But I still have concerns over whether flash cards and PowerPoint presentations represent due process; my preference would be to try accused U.S. citizens for treason in a court of law.”
