Rand Paul won his Republican primary decisively, but Tony decries him as a little “kooky” for following his libertarian ideology “to the nth degree,” and Arianna likens his candidacy to a “train wreck.” But Bob defends Paul because he rejected the bank bailout, calls for auditing the Fed, and opposed the war in Iraq. Tony feels the Financial Reform bill, just passed in the Senate, is a step in the wrong direction, while Arianna thinks the bill doesn’t go far enough. The panel agrees the full political and environmental effects of the gulf spill are yet to be felt. And Felipe Calderon’s “bashing” Arizona’s new immigration law was a “breach of protocol,” according to Tony, while Bob thinks it was perfectly appropriate.
