Rand likely thinks he is reaching out to the middle. He is really reaching out to his dad’s sixty or so followers.
George Bush had things much calmer in the Middle East. Obama encourages the “Arab Spring” that was essentially selling out those loyal to the US when it comes to Arab states. I agree that many suggested WRONGLY that we should have taken out Assad of Syria. But – he did use chemical weapons. He even continues to use them.
It was Obama pulling out American troops that undermined our successes in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was Obama who WRONGLY set “time tables” that set a schedule for our enemies to follow. It was Obama who did not speak up for the possible counter revolution in Iran when students there rose up. In fact, his comments put an end to their one and only time they could possibly have brought down that terrorist regime.
Rand Paul is his father’s boy. And he is listening to his dad for foreign policy.
I can no longer trust him at all. I just don’t see it. I agree with him on privacy. I don’t agree with him here.
He just fell of my top three list.
