Hattip to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. As long time readers of this blog know, I have never been a fan, to put it mildly, of Ron Paul. His son, Rand, is a different matter. He has keen political instincts and a feel for the jugular of his adversaries, as he demonstrated today:
“The ‘Hobby Lobby’ case is being discussed today, and I think it’s important that he tell the leader of the Catholic Church why he thinks that businesses owned by Catholics can’t make their own decisions with regard to health care,” Paul said.
“And I think is something that really should be discussed in our country,” Paul said. “Most of us, whether you’re Republican or Democrat, believe … in free exercise of your religion. But if they’re telling you that your tax dollars have to go to something you find morally reprehensible, I think that’s not free exercise of religion.”
If Paul decides to run for President in 2016 he will be a formidable candidate.
