Laura Ingraham hosted Senator Rand Paul.
Paul said the US should obey the Constitution as Obama and Biden stated during the Iraq war debates. He stated that congressional consultation doesn't mean the Constitution is being followed. He feels, based on conversations with administration leaders, that the White House is playing for a stalemate.
Paul said a reasonable compromise comes when one articulates and stands on principles. He said the ultimate compromise won't be what everyone wants, but there would be some gains.
Paul said that, according to the Constitution, all people in the US here legally or illegally are entitled to due process. He is troubled by President Obama's massive use of executive orders on health care, immigration, etc.. He said the Senate bill allows too much authority to rest with the executive branch. He feels that border security should be voted on each year by the Congress.
Paul and Ingraham agreed that conservatives at the grass roots level are put off by the GOP establishment. He has more trust in the people's representatives rather than the executive branch.
Paul said he will support Senator Mitch McConnell and said leadership is often put in difficult situations.
