Sen. Rand Paul Responds to SOTU

We knew that Rand Paul would be an unconventional senator, and so it comes as no surprise that he was not content to let Rep. Paul Ryan make the sole Republican response to the State of the Union (or Rep. Michelle Bachmann's shadow response, for that matter).

Sen. Paul has done his own response on YouTube. As of this writing, it has received more than 3500 hits. I'm gonna guess that not all those hits come from Kentucky. Paul has sent out at least three press releases and a weekly address and he has only been sworn in for a few days. Make no mistake, he is building a national base of support.

It's an outstanding response, focusing on Paul's greatest strength: his steadfast opposition to big government and deficit spending. It is striking for amount of substance and seriousness of purpose he manifests.
