After Senator John McCain went on a long winded rant from the Senate floor accusing Rand Paul of working for Vladimir Putin simply because he blocked a treaty that would allow tiny country of Montenegro to join NATO. Paul dismissed that and fired back at McCain on MSNBC.
MSNBC: “What’s your reaction to Senator McCain’s characterization of your objection?”
Rand Paul: “Well you know I think he makes a really really strong case, you know for term limits. Umm I think maybe he’s uh past his prime. I think maybe he’s gotten a little bit unhinged.
I do think that when we talk about NATO there can be a rational discussion about the pros and cons of expanding it.”
Montenegro is a sovereign state in Southeastern Europe. It has a coast on the Adriatic Sea to the south-west and is bordered by Croatia to the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the northwest, Serbia to the northeast, Kosovo[a] to the east, and Albania to the south-east. Its land area is only 5,333 sq. miles and it has 620,029 citizens according to 2o11 census.
The time is now for Congress, with the overwhelming support of the American people, to submit this constitutional amendment to the states for speedy ratification. With control of a decisive majority of the states, the House of Representatives, and the Senate, we have a responsibility to answer the voters’ call-to-action. We must deliver.
