Rand Paul: Could Obama’s Views ‘Get Any Gayer?’

Sen. Rand Paul mocked President Obama’s recent support of gay marriage on Friday, saying he didn’t think Obama’s views “could get any gayer.”

The Kentucky Republican said at Iowa’s Faith and Freedom Coalition meeting,  “Call me cynical, but I wasn’t sure his views on marriage could get any gayer.” The comments, which generated laughs, were made two days after Obama announced that he supported same-sex marriage, which he had previously opposed, while adding he thought the issue should be left up to the states to decide.

Paul was encouraging support for his father Ron Paul’s long-shot presidential campaign when the conversation turned to the news of the week: “He said the biblical golden rule caused him to be for gay marriage,” Paul said. “I’m like what version of the Bible is he reading?”


Paul went on to say that he’s not preaching hateful dogma against people, but added that he didn’t believe people should give up on their traditions: “Six thousand years of tradition” combined with “anthropological” evidence shows “there’s stability in the family unit… The family is really important and we shouldn’t just give up on it,” he said.

Paul spoke against abortion as well as same-sex marriage: “I think we’re in a spiritual crisis as a country,” Paul said, “and I think you’re going to need leaders beyond your political leaders.”

How to Catch Someone Lying

Everybody lies. We asked body-language expert Patti Wood to help us spot hidden clues that serve as red flags. That way you’ll know if what you’re being told is a lie, or if you’re just a paranoid wacko with trust issues.

TRUST YOUR GUT — ESPECIALLY WITH FRIENDS
“Your central nervous system acts like a human lie detector,” Woods explains. “So when you think someone is lying to you, it reacts with a stress response.” Problem is, it’s not always on target. It works better with people you know because you already have an idea of how they act when they’re not lying.

ASK QUESTIONS IN REVERSE ORDER
Most liars practice their stories from beginning to end, so asking them to convey information out of sequence can trip them up. So if your idiot buddy starts to tell a long story about why he was so late meeting you at the bar, interrupt him with questions rather than letting him tell the story from beginning to end.


EXAMINE BODY LANGUAGE AND RESPONSE
Hands in pockets, head pointed toward the floor, and shoulders slouched are all good indications that a person isn’t being forthcoming. If you question a part of a person’s story and react strangely — she Hulks up and gets angry, or laughs a little too hard, or begins to fidget with her hair — she may be trying to mislead you.

TIME THEIR TICS
Just because someone touches his nose or mouth, or blinks excessively, doesn’t mean he’s lying. If you notice it from the start of the conversation, don’t pay attention to it. But since stress can trigger nerves around the nose, eyes, or lips, if the tics begin right when you think the lying begins, you might be onto something.
