Rand Paul Says 33% Black 2016 Vote For The GOP

Yesterday, I published a piece related to Rand Paul as the political chameleon of the 21st Century. Paul not only has a history also a serial plagiarizer, he is a pathological lair to the level of a mandatory visit with his favorite psychiatrist. Paul is a trickster, a "gamer,' and he at times comes across as a "player."

Watch the "player" in action.

"I'm, all wired up here." Mitch McConnell to Paul as the "player" ran a bit of game on the TV crew preparing to interview McConnell. I posit, Paul heard McConnell's warning of "hot mic" and decided it fit his scheme quite well.  I am convinced Paul wanted every word of his plotting captured for archive, if not broadcast live. Media called the interaction "Hot Mic;" I call it "Strategic Mic."

Watch and listen.

People who consider themselves cunning are risk takers who will not hesitate to lie and deceive. Paul considers himself cunning.  He has in his past spoken of the acceptability and utility of "misinformationto a group of medical students. His example was clear misinformation for personal gain.

Politico published a piece yesterday with Paul proclaiming predicting a 33 percent GOP vote from the black community in 2016. If your immediate thought is similar to my immediate reaction, you will recognize our common association in the following one minute Wile E. Coyote cartoon. Excuse the striking resemblance shared between Paul and Wiley. The analogous choice was purely coincidental.

Daily Kos writer Jed Lewison's report of Politico's piece wraps Paul's comments in a properly perspective.

Goal Thermometer
Sen. Rand Paul tells POLITICO that the Republican presidential candidate in 2016 could capture one-third or more of the African-American vote by pushing criminal-justice reform, school choice and economic empowerment.
“If Republicans have a clue and do this and go out and ask every African-American for their vote, I think we can transform an election in one cycle,” the Kentucky Republican said in a phone interview Thursday as he was driven through New Hampshire in a rental car.
The key takeaway from this is that when Rand Paul is being "driven through New Hampshire in a rental car," Politico is the one publication that can capture his thoughts on how Republicans can improve outreach to African-American voters. Indeed, the fact that he offered them from New Hampshire is fitting, because with an African-American population of 1.1 percent, New Hampshire is tied with Utahfor 5th lowest percentage in the entire country.
To be fair to Paul—and for once, I'm not being snarky—criminal justice reform is a crucial issue and does represent a real opportunity. School choice and economic empowerment, however? Not so much, because much of the policy agenda underlying those slogans is about advancing a conservative response to school desegregation and affirmative action.
Still, I guess you could give Paul some points for at least trying ... except he really wasn't trying that hard. For example, when the topic of Ebola came up, he had this to say:
Pounding a message he has delivered in interview after interview, Paul said President Barack Obama and his administration have “underplayed the danger and transmissibility” of the Ebola virus and have had a “bossy, arrogant attitude.”
Pro tip, Sen. Paul: If you're trying to win over voters who have been driven away from the GOP because of its southern strategy, you might want to stop calling Obama "bossy" and complaining about his "arrogant attitude." Just my $0.02.

Rand Paul is a consummate Chameleon. He masks not only to disguise for self-preservation, he cloaks for personal expediency. Paul, like you and me, knows the GOP will never attract significant minority votes. Yet, he lays his rhetoric out to attraction attention much like a twisted mustachioed carnival barker. The mouthy pied piper who knows the show in the big tent is not as the marquee under which he stands. He is a phony character who will say anything to capture a camera or to offer an inane quote.

The Chameleon from Kentucky knows he cannot win the GOP nomination without attracting the gullible who might be inclined to bite on his 'phishing.' He also knows those who might bite must come from people who have a history of not voting GOP. Therefore, Paul is hopeful of masking his true conservatism via false prophecy to the black community.

He is a Judas Goat desperate to attract attention. The rotten state of US media offers the opportunist platforms, while ignoring the overwhelming extent of Paul's intellectual deficiency and his proven record of dishonesty.

Think with me for a moment. Try to allow your mind to absorb and accept the notation 33 percent of black voters who vote GOP in 2016.
