[su_right_ad]With Bush’s admission he smoked put, Paul says he’s a hypocrite for not favoring legalization.

“You would think he’d have a little more understanding then,” Paul said on Friday, in comments to The Hill after the Boston Globe reported Bush had used the drug in the late 60s during his student days Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts.

“He was even opposed to medical marijuana. This is a guy who now admits he smoked marijuana but he wants to put people in jail who do. I think that’s the real hypocrisy, is that people on our side, which include a lot of people, who made mistakes growing up, admit their mistakes but now still want to put people in jail for that,” he added.

“Had he been caught at Andover, he’d have never been governor, he’d probably never have a chance to run for the presidency.”

    But, it’s still a “mistake”, right Rand?

    Rand is the last person to talk about being a hypocrite. I could care less about Jeb being a pothead at P.A. Those pretentious, self entitled tools that went there wanted to fit in with the “locals” and rub their faces in it all at the same time. What concerns me is that Bush was known to be a bully. Use his size, his legacy, his money to intimidate and bully people to feed his own ego.

    Rand is going after the younger voters trying to win their vote assuming they won’t dig any further than his stance on legalization. In other words, he thinks the 20 and 30 somethings are too stupid to know better, that’s a bad bet.

      All one needs to know about the type of President Rand would be … just watch the video of him running away from the dreamers and his unabashed plagiarism. So, he’ll run away from any situation that is difficult and lie.
      Boom. There it is in a nutshell. 🙂

    He is as big a hypocrite as our president. Obviously.

    But Americans don’t care. We are addicted to caging our fellow citizens.

    the entire premise is wrong. He didn’t call him a hypocrite for SMOKING pot, he called him a hypocrite for being against legalization.

    So says the senator from one of the top pot producing states in the nation

    Says the opthamologist who says he’s “board certified” even though HE created the organization that certified him. Who uses Alex Jones as a news source, who says “…growth of government is enormous under President Obama,” and “There are no rich. There are no middle class. There are no poor.”

    How’s that phrase go? Physician, heal thyself?
