I like the cut of his jib . . .

centernewsnetwork.com:

 For this:

 Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that there was no “objective evidence” that black voters were being disenfranchised, as he entered a contentious battle over new voter identification laws in Southern states. ”The interesting thing about voting patterns now is in this last election African-Americans voted at a higher percentage than whites in almost every one of the states that were under the special provisions of the federal government,” Paul said at a forum in Louisville, according to WFPL-FM.  “So really, I don’t think there is objective evidence that we’re precluding African-Americans from voting any longer,” he added.

 And this:

SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): “I think her decision making process with regards to Benghazi should preclude [Hillary Clinton] from holding high office because really it’s not so much what happened at the time of the attacks. For six months leading up to the attack, they ask and they ask and they pleaded for more security and she says, ‘Oh I never read the cables.’ The problem with that is that’s her job.”

 

Obama grasps for a handle on scandal . . .

From the Center for the Center:

The Obama strategy for avoiding the political and legal consequences of the three primary scandals facing him is becoming clear. The Center sees the Obama strategy as follows:

1. AP/Fox News scandal: Obama’s “preferred” scandal. Obama is betting that the public will ultimately hold little sympathy for the mainstream media in the context of Obama protecting “national security” interests. Holder will soon take one for the team and resign.

2. Benghazi: This is Obama’s second favorite scandal because it is the most easy to politicize by blaming Republicans for “prolonging” a tragedy when “there is no there, there,” according to Obama. Besides, ultimately, Hillary is responsible and will eventually find herself under the bus.

3. IRS suppression of the Tea Party during the Presidential election: Obama’s most difficult challenge. The emerging strategy is to vigorously shove as many IRS employees, and soon White House staffers, under the bus as is necessary to insulate Obama. The campaign to portray the IRS as somehow confused by the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United v FCC opinion, and to further vilify the Tea Party, is beginning in earnest.

“What difference does it make?”

Ever predictable Chris Matthews summons his inner Hillary in whining to FBI profiler regarding Boston bombers, “What difference does it make why they did it.” Of course Matthews was keenly interested in motive when he suspected a right wing terror plot. This echoes Hillary’s screeching “what difference . . . does it make” why terrorists killed our Ambassador in Benghazi, after Hillary’s lie about the anti-Muslim video was exposed.
