Mediaite has video of the first part of the interview:

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/rand-paul-gop-not-reaching-out-to-african-americans-the-biggest-mistake-weve-made/

I was impressed that he cited the recent case where Atlanta police threw a grenade into an infant's crib during a no-knock drug raid. More people need to be made aware of these outrageous -- the argument against police militarization practically makes itself.

Paul said that he would support increases in federal spending for job training in urban communities that could be paid for with cuts to the costs of incarceration.

What part of the Constitution authorizes a program like that?

Training people for jobs > Training people to become criminals

He's working within the framework to attack some of our most egregious policies.

I know, but I would rather used the saved money to balance the budget and pay off the national debt.

But since that's not politically feasible at this time, we take a smaller step in the right direction first :)

It's called pandering. You only seem to applaud it when he panders to your issues.

FWIW, I don't see anything in that quote that says he would spend all the savings made on cuts in costs of incarceration on job training. I think he envisions it as a net cut in costs and gain in employable people who would then add to the tax base.

Playing the "what part of the constitution authorizes that" game isn't going to help anybody. Sure, many here would cheer it; but fact is the federal govt is already spending money on job training and is already spending money incarcerating people; he isn't proposing starting either one. I'm sure he would vote to end both but it wouldn't pass anyways, so he has moved on more moderate proposals to get the ball moving in the right direction. But you already knew that...

Published on Oct 10, 2014
In an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) spoke about his meeting with NAACP leaders in Ferguson, MO, and called on the GOP to start actually listening to the African-American community.

“I don’t want to characterize how everybody else feels about what I said, but I think it was a good opening to the conversation,” Paul said. “I think in the Republican Party, the biggest mistake we’ve made in the last several decades is we haven’t gone into the African American community, into the NAACP and say you know what, we are concerned about what’s going on in your cities and we have plans. They may be different than the Democrats, but we do have plans and we do want to help.”

Paul, who made waves after the death of Michael Brown with an op-ed calling for the demilitarization of the police, noted that his libertarian leanings and push against the War on Drugs made it “pretty easy” to work with the NAACP’s civil rights agenda.

“There’s a sense of tension and unease that goes beyond just the shootings,” he added. “I think the shooting has brought this to the surface, but there’s a sense of unease in the country. Black unemployment is twice white unemployment and has been for decade after decade. I know this president cares about trying to improve it but it hasn’t gotten better.”

It's something that would make sense in a general election, but in a primary it seems like it could hurt him. Someone like Cruz might criticize him for being in favor of creating yet another government spending program.

Well, I also criticized Ron when he used similar rhetoric, like when he called for cutting overseas spending on wars and spending that money on children's health care. (My view is that we shouldn't spend money on either) So I'm being consistent. I support Ron and Rand but don't agree with them on everything.

Have you always been this narrow minded or is this a recent development? Rand Paul is a politician and politicians pander. The only reason you are upset is because he isn't pandering to the issue you like. This whole "primary vs. general election" is just an excuse for you. The real issue is that isn't pandering to your issue of choice and so you speak out against it.

congratulations, you are consistent. randal is consistent in that he first pushes for his ideal positions/policies, then pushes for moderate policies trying to find a middle ground that still moves the ball forward.

The way Rand pivots off each of Wolf's questions is amazing. That's some serious talent.

There's more floating around out there. Here's a little clip of him talking about Ebolavirus:

Huh? I didn't see the interview when it aired... did they talk about college football or something?

probably since the interview was multiple segments it had commercials which they didn't cut out. I would guess the copyright violation is from some audio or video in the commercials which got automatically detected by google.

Well, while we're waiting for that to get unblocked, here's Blitzer talking to an NAACP member who was at the meeting. He has some seriously nice things to say about Rand, and calls him a model for Republicans to follow:

Wow, that copyright claim is a bit embarrassing. If it was really because of a commercial not being edited out that should have been, we don't want something sloppy like that happening during the campaign. Better fix it and make sure it never happens again
