Rand Paul Says Obama Is A Lame Duck President

While at the South by Southwest conference, Rand Paul definitely let his views on a number of issues be known. In one interview, he stated that President Obama was a “lame duck” president and that this has been the scenario since the midterm elections in November.

Paul went on to say that it was up to Obama whether or not he wanted to achieve any type of significant reform while working with Congress. However, he also stated that in his opinion, he has been just like Jimmy Carter, a lame duck, since the first day of the election. The big question is whether or not there will be any accomplishments of significance during Obama’s final year.

This is definitely not the first time that Paul has criticized Obama’s work outside of what is laid out by the U.S. Constitution. Paul also stated that Obama has vetoed or made a threat to veto each GOP-led legislation effort, refusing any compromise and ruling with executive orders. However, Obama has one more opportunity to prove that he can compromise and govern; a bill that is coming up related to highways also offers a number of significant tax cuts. Paul, who is a likely presidential candidate for 2016 spoke at the South by Southwest conference and impressed everyone in attendance.
