Once again, Rand Paul proves he fails history. Today, in his rant to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rand Paul falsely boasted that the Beghazi attack was the worst "tragedy" since 9/11.
"I think ultimately with your leaving that you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11. And I really mean that."
Rand Paul, 1/23/2013 During Sec of State Hillary Clinton testimony
Rand Paul is so damn dumb and wrong. The worst "tragedy
" since 9/11 could be the twenty 6 year olds who were massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
President Obama has said the massacre of (20) 6year olds at Sandy Hook was the worst day of his Presidency.
Not only does Rand Paul fail current events, he fails those "tragedies" that happened during the Bush Administration:
Anthrax Attack - 5 Americans murdered, 17 injured
DC Sniper - 9 Americans murdered on American soil, 3 wounded
Iraq War - 5000 US Troops killed searching for imaginary WMD

April 16, 2007 - Virginia Tech University: 32 Killed, 23 injured
To underscore and highlight Rand Paul's ignorance of other "current events"
July 20, 2012 Aurora Colorado Movie Theater Massacre where 12 murdered, 58 injured.
October 2012 Hurricane Sandy - One more of the factually "worst tragedies" since 9/11 was Hurricane Sandy (131 reported killed) where Rand Paul voted AGAINST the $60 Billion Relief Funding for Hurricane Sandy victims -- and Rand Paul also voted against the watered-down GOP version of $24 Billion Relief Funding for Hurricane Sandy victims.
Rand Paul is a GD idiot and his actions in Congress show that he does not give one damn about preventing another "worse tragedy" since 9/11 as he is against any and all Gun Safety legislation.
From his website:
"Gun control laws only restrict access to responsible gun ownership ... I plan to remain vigilant and fight against infringements on our 2nd Amendment rights."
Rand Paul website.
In short, Rand Paul is saying "so what if 'worse tradegies' since 9/11 are happening on US soil and Americans are getting massacred on US soil - ta hell with Gun Safety Laws.
