Grayson won Rudy Giuliani's endorsement, and Giuliani has urged Americans to look at the narrow escape in Times Square and recall when we were not so lucky, on 9/11. So when the news cycle hands you an event that illustrates a key distinction between your opponent, use it (if you want to win, that is).
Under the Obama administration, terrorists have struck at Fort Hood. A Denver group sought to bomb the New York City subway. The Christmas Day bomber nearly succeeded in blowing up a plane over Detroit. And now we have Times Square. Turns out Homeland Security has been reduced to guys selling fake Coach purses.
Though the Obama administration avoids the word "terrorist" so as not to hurt Muslim feelings, we are in a war. Islamofascists want to kill us -- and will keep trying until our luck runs out.
Trey Grayson will vote to use the full intelligence capability of the U.S. government to detect these people before they light their fuses. Grayson supports the Patriot Act; Rand Paul does not. Grayson will vote to keep Gitmo open to house terrorists for a long, long time. Rand Paul, when the hard votes come, will go all wobbly and vote with Lindsay Graham.
Rand Paul has said -- his words, on tape -- "I think they should mostly be sent back to their country of origin. Or to tell you the truth I’d drop them back off into battle."
Well, thanks to the Times Square car bomber we now know that Emerites Air is running a special. So why isn't Trey Grayson running an ad showing the plane to Dubai with a voiceover from Rand Paul about sending back terrorists to their country of origin?
