Rand Paul Launches Debate Ads (Just Not In SC)




|| By FITSNEWS || With his presidential campaign on life support, U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky announced this week that his campaign would be purchasing television time in early voting Iowa and New Hampshire during the second “Republican” presidential debate.

South Carolina?  Not so much, apparently …

“This ad lays out Senator Paul’s debate game plan,” his strategists announced in an email, saying they would drive the message that Paul is “the candidate with the biggest, boldest tax and budget proposals.”

“Taxes, debt, and a corrupt culture in Washington is what animates the election,” Paul’s strategists added.  “They’re the very issues that drive Rand Paul.”

Since those of us here in the Palmetto State won’t be able to see the ad on television, here it is online …

Wow …

Dude … do you even want to be running for president? Because from the looks of that ad, the answer is an unequivocal “no.”

Hell, we got tired watching the first five seconds …

Seriously: Rand Paul has managed to turn the only thing redeeming about his disastrous 2016 campaign – his tax proposals – into a typical political snoozer of an ad.

“As President, I’ll make government smaller by cutting spending AND taxes,” Paul says in the spot, delivering a tired message with zero conviction.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: It’s hard to remember a national campaign that has squandered as much potential as Rand Paul’s.  Which is sad because he’s got a decent tax plan.
