Rand Paul Already Acting Like an Incumbent

I would like to live in Rand Paul's world where people are moral and they do the right thing when given the choice.

That's what he's saying. Rand Paul doesn't condone racism or segregation, but he believes that private business owners should be able to decide who they're going to serve. Wouldn't it be nice if people weren't racist and businesses paid women the same as men, and Wall Street did what's best for Main Street and businesses adhered to good environmental practices, not because it was legislated, but because it was the right thing to do?

Now, he's saying going on Rachel Maddow's show was a political boo boo. He's already acting like an incumbent.
In the wake of Rand Paul’s comments on MSNBC’s "Rachel Maddow Show" Wednesday night questioning provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Kentucky Republican Senate nominee said Thursday he supported the law and would not support its repeal.

Paul also said that appearing on Maddow’s show "was a poor political decision.”

In an interview with radio talk show host Laura Ingraham, Paul implicitly acknowledged that he’d given his opponents ammunition to assail him. MSNBC
Well, here's something interesting, Rand Paul is for segregation if that is what a business wants to do, but he is against a woman's right to choose to get an abortion. Now that is odd. That says to me, we have a lot more to learn about Rand Paul because libertarians are usually for a woman's right to choose.
He'll be on Meet the Press on Sunday, which should be entertaining.
