Oh, My: “Rand Paul’s Vacation Somewhat Different From Obama’s”



We’ve all heard of Obama’s vacations, but it is interesting to know what senator Rand Paul did during the August recess. Golfing? Martha’s Vineyard? Frolicking on the beach? No. Paul spent his vacation giving free eye surgeries to low-income patients. Now I realize the president needs to rest and can’t spend all of his time doing charity work. But seriously, can anyone think of anything Obama has ever done compassion-wise, that actually cost him something and wasn’t on the taxpayer’s dime, or some way calculated to advance his ambitions?

Paul, who just moments ago was bent over Burke, looking through a microscope at her eye as he methodically and precisely moved needles and tools to remove the cataract, laughs happily. “You’re seeing colors again,” he warmly observes.
“Now you’ll recognize him on TV,” Bowers jokes to Burke about Paul.
“Oh my God,” Burke repeats. “It’s awesome. Oh my goodness.”

Burke is one of four patients that Paul performs pro bono eye surgery on today.”

    What skills does Zero have to give away?

    It’s refreshing to see a politician who doesn’t have to make his living in politics…or law…or “teaching” at a university.

    It takes no talent to destroy things, on the other hand to build or fix things requires skill.

    Maybe the chaos of the liberal brain is just that, lacking skills.
