Unless you were watching TheBlaze TV, it's unlikely you caught Sen. Rand Paul's response to the president's State of the Union address. Airing past 11p.m. after the president and Marco Rubio's remarks, Paul gave a cutting criticism of the State of our Union under the Obama administration, noting the 12 million Americans out of work, the 1 out of every 6 Americans who are poor, and the over $6 trillion in new debt since Obama took office.

On Immigration, Paul said the GOP must be the party who sees immigrants as assets, not liabilities, and called the president out on complaining abou the sequester which he originally endorsed. Paul indicated that both parties need to seriously consider across the board cuts, including to the military.

Paul followed up his response on the Glenn Beck Radio show Wednesday morning, commenting about the need to combat President Obama’s use of executive power, calling on religious leaders to join in the fight against the type of politics of our day.

The Kentucky Senator joined 'Real News' Wednesday to discuss his reaction to the president's policy proposals for term two revealed in Tuesday's speech, and the media reaction to his speech compared to Marco Rubio's. Is the mainstream media trying to pit the Republicans against one another?

He also blasted Obama's speech, saying the president appears to be used to running on this "Santa Claus platform" where new government programs will somehow not cost any money.
