It is a characteristic of the American way of politics that candidates must be able to handle members of the media and so far, Rand Paul is coming across as a petty,angry little man who does not believe that members of the media have a right to pose questions without first checking with him about the question. He has been in a spat with Savannah Guthrie, an English reporter because he does not believe that she poses questions that he must answer. She dared to ask him why he had changed his ideas about foreign policy and this infuriated him because when he changes his mind about foreign policy he should at least have the right to explain that it is not a change, but another approach to the issue. In other words, he was against something before he was for it. Heck John Kerry made such a statement back in 2004 so why can’t he utter it? Rand insists that when someone asked why he “changed” a view it is an example of “editorializing.”
1. Submit questions to Rand Paul
2. Ask his permission prior to posing a question.
3. Initially say, “I know that your position is correct, but..”
4. Just remember that I am a Christian and will not curse.
5. I am a libertarian which means I believe in free speech for those running for President.
