Rand Paul Says His Wife Opposes a Presidential Run

But will that matter?


Speaking in Detroit the other night, Sen. Rand Paul was asked if he'd run for president in 2016. It's a question he gets a lot these days. …

"Where's my cell phone? Can I call my wife?" Paul joked. "There's two votes in my family. My wife has both of them and both of them are 'no' votes right now."

"If I'm a very able politician, I'll tell you in a year whether I'm able to persuade my wife. Right now, I don't know yet, but I thank you for your interest," he said.

  1. As good as he is, Rand Paul is yet to unplug from the matrix. He should tell his wife that she doesn’t have a vote, that only his will matters, and if she doesn’t like it she can go marry a loser who will put up with her crap.

    1. Going out on a limb here, but objectivist?

      1. I was thinking bachelor.

        1. fap connoisseur

  2. Always seems like only European Americans become candidates for President. With the exception of President Obama, who is our first Mixed Race President, are there no Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, or Asian Americans running for this office. Especially Asian Americans who must be among some of the best educated Americans there are. For example, just think of a Chinese American President who spoke fluent Chinese to deal with China. Would that not be beneficial for the United States, and especially since our market is flooded with Chinese products. Not to mention all that money we owe them that we borrowed to finance our no win war in Central Asia. And also, China is an up and coming military power in Asia, or at least will be in the future. Of course none of this is going to happen any too soon. After all, we want to prevent another trauma for all those power brokers and their dumb ass racist camp followers so we don’t end up with another non White American, and especially an intelligent one.

    1. Hi “On The Road To Mandalay”, Money we owe to China? LISTEN, my Bro, LISTEN to our own domestically grown Morally Superior Person, “Economist” Paul Krugland, who says, basically, “Inflation is a GOOD thing!” We owe XY and Z trillions of $dollars to China? China, populated by POOR people compared to the USA? (Don’t fergit, non-AmeriKKKans = ILLEGAL humanoids!) Just inflate the HELL out of them that thar USA dollars, and THEN pay them back, in inflated dollars! Machs Nix!!!! We got the might, we go the right! Rich pepples ripin’ off poor pepples?!!? Do NOT worry your pretty little heads about it!

      1. *Citizen Kane slow clap*

    2. Anti-racists= believe in a vast conspiracy of white people to dominate all the races that are actually superior to them

  3. Too bad, he is my most favored for next President right now.
