Bill Kristol: Rand Paul’s foreign policy worse than Obama’s

Aug. 26, 2014

* Edited for time as per MFP’s loose journalistic standards.

On Laura Ingraham’s show Monday, Bill Kristol accused Rand Paul of dodging a substantive foreign policy debate by dismissing critics as “war-mongers”…

On foreign policy, I think the critique of Rand Paul– and it’s a substantive issue, not really political name-calling– the issue is his foreign policy would be a lot like President Obama’s, I think. If anything, maybe a little more restrained.

I don’t agree with some of my friends who want to excommunicate Rand Paul, but I also don’t agree with Rand Paul when he sort of tries to avoid substantive debate by saying, ‘well, someone else is a war-monger’ or, you know, ‘if you’re for bombing the hell out of ISIL, you’re somehow for sending a hundred thousands troops back to Iraq.

You may recall that in 2012, renowned foreign policy expert Bill Kristol mocked “naysayers” who feared the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt could lead to the rise of Muslim extremists.

D’oh!

Most recently, Kristol urged Obama to “absolutely” “override the will of the people” by re-invading Iraq.
