Rand Paul Thinks Attacking Other Republicans Constitutes "Momentum"

I am going to share with you the latest fundraising email from the [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ] campaign. We’ve all been busy discussing the Cruz v. Rubio feud lately, and whether the behavior of the two candidates is appropriate towards each other. Into this void steps [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ].

Now, I thought [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ] had a pretty good debate – easily his best one of the year, in fact. I said so immediately after the debate was over. But this fundraising email is pretty disgusting.

In it, Paul sets forth the idea that the fact that the media reporting his attacks on other Republicans constitutes “momentum.” News flash for [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ], in case he doesn’t understand how this game is played (and he does) – the media is always happy to report infighting among Republicans, and the more vicious and personal the better.

The fact that the media acts in exactly the way you would expect them to given that you attacked other candidates isn’t momentum, it’s evidence that you’re playing useful idiot for people who want the Republican party to fail. Here is how the email, which is titled “Headlines just minutes after…” opens:

Dear Leon,

“[mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ] Blast Trump, Rubio in Opening Statement” — Newsmax

“Paul: Christie ‘World War III’ Candidate” — The Hill

“Paul: Rubio has ‘allegiance’ to liberals on immigration” — Washington Examiner

[mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ] nicks [mc_name name=’Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’R000595′ ] on immigration — Politico

[mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ] calls [mc_name name=’Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’R000595′ ] the ‘weakest’ candidate on immigration” — The Week

Those were the news headlines from just minutes after Tuesday night’s debate in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Leon, will you chip in $10 or $20 to support my campaign’s Money Bomb and help take our momentum as far as possible?

This is absolutely ridiculous on [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ]’s part. His campaign is flagging, CNN violated their own rules just to get him on the debate stage, he’s wildly in debt, and he used the opportunity to brag about how good he is tearing other Republicans down? Time for Rand to get out of the race.
