Rand Paul: WWII Memorial Access Blocked By Government 'Goons'

By Mollie Reilly
10/02/2013


Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) accused President Barack Obama's administration of sending "goons" to block veterans from visiting the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC on the first day of the government shutdown.

During a Tuesday appearance on Fox News' "Hannity," Paul said the closure of national parks and monuments was a Democratic "charade."

"If Harry Reid and the president want to keep the parks closed -- I mean, did you read the story today?" Paul asked Fox's Sean Hannity. "Some idiot in the government sent goons out there to set up barricades so they couldn't see the monument. People had to spend hours setting up barricades where there are never barricades, to prevent people from seeing the World War II monument, because they're trying to play a charade."

Paul continued, "They like the shutdown."

Doesn't D.C. have regular police that could patrol the area and stop people from defacing monuments?

I think Ted is taking one for the team so Rand can have a better shot.

Why would they need them? They have park personnel to put up the barriers (barry-ers) and to arrest those who cross them.

I dunno. Cruz has to be ambitious. I haven't figured out his game plan yet. He's not following the approved path, and I wonder what's up his sleeve.

When you decide to shut the government down. You don't get to keep open the bits you like...just because.



It's called consequences.

which is a brilliant political move by paul. he lets cruz take the bullets and he can come in like this and take clean shots at people.

if the shutdown really works then cruz gains massive points but rand is in the safer position. especially because boehner has no back bone and will cave instead of getting anything useful.

Why do I get the feeling that more money is expended to barricade the monuments than to simply 'shut them down'.
