I'm Don Jonathan Hunt did you see senator -- polls filibuster the other week.
-- and a lot of attention.
A lot of people thought it was a wonderful exercising.
All of his rights as a senate not others ridiculed it among those who were critical of it powerful senators like the Arizona senator.
What does it done them for senator -- standing.
In the Republican Party Rick Sanchez has some thoughts on that is an article up on lying about it right now.
I guess I mean he did get some ridicule.
Rick but I made it in some -- is that according to your thoughts.
That's made him -- pretty powerful guy.
Those guys a superstar there's just no doubt about it and he's an unassuming superstar you look at of these.
Not a teleprompter -- he's not rehearsed.
He looks like the kind of guy you you know run into it the outside your grocery store group.
Hasn't clipboard and once you -- some kind of petition to protect your neighborhood or something and the more you listen -- -- the more you realize that he's just very authentic.
He means what he says and he's the real deal.
Give a break anybody comes up to me outside and supermarket with a click -- I -- to run a long way from.
But thank god I didn't know what I make -- here's why make that point Jonathan you know we have all these people in Washington were paid these enormous salaries and all of a Marino or on the take that people moving your money easily.
Continue to get elected.
There are still people out there who really believe in causes at the grassroots level and and they may be your neighbor they may be somebody close to you they may be your uncle or someone.
And that's what Rand Paul reminds me of a guy who really gives a crap about what he's talking about a guy who really believes.
In this and that's why this last week Tuesday.
He came out and talked about a pathway for undocumented immigrants.
Now wait -- Rand Paul a Tea Party favorite talking about giving a pathway to citizenship to undocumented immigrants.
You and I thought because we follow this this guy's gonna get -- it's over.
Goodbye -- and -- know the Tea Party organizations all came out freedom -- came out and said you know what he's right.
He makes a good point it's got like a little may be enough that they -- -- wrong you know this guys just got that right now he's got the cut back.
-- out what one of our viewers writing in here I Rick is and anyone listening says Rand Paul appears that the media only one that will tell you what he thinks.
And won't back down from his convictions and I guess that's the core of his appeal to a -- -- of the American people but do you think it's enough.
To make him a viable.
Candidate one for the Republican presidential nominations actually -- -- an independent.
Run at the presidency and I mean really is he ever going to be more powerful than he is now.
Yes and others -- the sense.
I have a radio show everyday from three to six on W I will be one of the -- which put channel stations here in South Florida and a pretty mixed audience that we talk about these kind of things every day you know Jonathan.
I'm glad you asked that question I do feel.
That Americans are looking for some kind of authenticity right now.
Something like what Rand Paul offers and I don't see that you know people -- -- from other names -- arguing for other names.
I don't see a lot of that kind of authenticity a guy who's rooted.
Innate belief call libertarian call it whatever call -- freedom.
But he really has something clear that he seems to have an ideological belief pin.
Outside of all the trappings of the optics of being in you know showbiz slash.
And I think that that's reverberating with people I really do I think it's making a difference now.
You know once and handlers get a hold of them and they start trying to put too much make up on -- making a read teleprompters and stuff.
I don't know if it'll continue but I would say the answer your question is yes right now I think this guy's got that that it factor.
One another one of our -- our rights is saying Rick you hit the nail on the head round poll gives a crap -- I guess the fixed.
That's his appeal to people certainly -- -- a great talking to and -- Rick's face once again.
Is open up Fox News that dot com right now they you can -- -- policies Latino.
It's a great piece -- read it ten that make up your own minds about senator -- Rick Sanchez great to -- my friend have fun down there in Miami today.
My great Jonathan all right here.
