Rand Paul hits Obama for playing 'Mickey Mouse games'

(CNN) - The Obama administration's decision to close for tours while at the same time releasing hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Egypt amounts to political gamesmanship, according to Sen. Rand Paul.

Reacting to Secretary of State John Kerry's move last week to release $250 million in economic aid to Egypt, Paul on Monday harked back to the news that tours of the executive mansion have been suspended as mandatory across-the-board spending cuts take effect.

It's official...the votes are in

(CNN) - Mitt Romney may have lost the presidential race to President Barack Obama, but he can find some comfort in knowing that he beat at least 68 other Americans who received votes for president in November. In fact, 2.2 million voters cast their ballots for someone other than Obama or Romney, comprising 1.7% of the total vote.

Among those who received votes: Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson placed third with nearly 1.3 million votes; Green Party nominee Jill Stein placed fourth with more than 469,000 votes; and former U.S. Rep. Virgil Goode, the Constitution Party nominee, placed fifth with more than 122,000 votes.

Paul supporters protest through convention halls

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - A large number of Ron Paul supporters marched through the halls of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, site of the Republican convention, protesting what they feel is unfair treatment by organizers against them.

The group, estimated at several hundred, marched through the upper hallways of the site shouting "As Maine goes, so goes the nation" in protest of the Republican National Committee voting not to seat 10 delegates from Maine and replacing them with pro-Mitt Romney ones. Also 10 alternates were not seated.

Paul to supporters: 2012 the start of a new era

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - As Rep. Ron Paul's third presidential bid is set to come to its formal end at the Republican National Convention, Paul sought to rally his loyal supporters with talk of a new era in American history.

"I'm convinced that we're living at the end of an era," Paul told the crowd at a rally in honor of him and his libertarian political movement. "The end of an era provides an opportunity," Paul added before laying out his view that an era in American government, foreign policy, and monetary policy that began in 1913 is coming to an end roughly a century later.
