Sen. Rand Paul said Thursday that Republicans are like Charlie Sheen and are actually “winning” despite criticisms this week of party disarray over a budget strategy that would defund Obamacare, according to reports.
“Does anybody remember Charlie Sheen when he was kind of going crazy…And he was going around, jumping around saying ‘Winning, winning, we’re winning,’” Paul (R-Ky.) said, according to an MSNBC report. “Well I kind of feel like that, we are winning. And I’m not on any drugs.”
Paul’s comments, which were from an appearance before an audience of the Liberty Political Action Committee in Virginia, come after a week of Republicans sparring over whether to move ahead with a resolution proposal that would also seek to defund Obamacare. However, Paul ensures that the party has the public’s support on a variety of issues.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Sunday refused to explicitly say that he disagreed with his father, former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), that Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) offers "nothing" to Republicans -- but he may have shocked some tea partiers by declaring that the party had "room for people who believe in bigger government."
