Bill Kristol Attacks attacks Rand Paul for running ‘to the left of the Obama administration’
Daily Caller ^ | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/17/2013 2:05:36 PM PDT by JohnPDuncan

On “Fox News Sunday,” Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol echoed an editorial he wrote this week slamming Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul for suggesting at the Conservative Political Action Conference that the “GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.”

“I think it is the Republican Party, to the degree that it has been a successful party and an important party and a contributor to American well-being over the last 50, 60 years, has been so in large part because it has been the party of strong national security,” Kristol said. “Republicans were not — you can say they are moss-covered, but some of us are proud to have come to Washington to work in a very minor role for Ronald Reagan, and some of us are proud to have supported the Bush administration after 9/11, and fighting our enemies.”

Bill Kristol is left of Obama on every issue. He’s a laughing stock.

Kristol and the others are missing the key point: whether Rand Paul was correct or not is immaterial. The point is, unlike most of the wusses (or worse) in the GOP, Rand Paul stood and fought.

We are desperate for ANY Republican to confront Obama on any issue.

Finally, someone with balls. Instead of identifying the obvious, these ninnies nit-pick.

Oh, yes. Strong national security.

Allowing BO to destroy the military, allowing him and the NSA and State to get away with the Benghazi massacre and scandal.

They are the opposition party. what have they done for defense.

Kristol is pitiful. He lives in a dream world.

Visions of Leahy stammering and mumbling is the picture of all of these BO enablers.

Even if he did run to the left of Obama I doubt Paul would say screw the base, I wanna do what I wanna do.

Kristol symbolizes the permanent political class. I dont think Rand will lose any sleep over this.

I’m interested to know what Karl Rove said... the DC video cut off and I can’t stand watching these shows.. anyone?

it has been the party of strong national security

Subsiding first world nations does not the party of strong national security us make.

Providing missile defense, securing our borders, strengthening our navy and marines, and advancing our bombers, aircraft and drones - that's what we need to do. We should be able to make sheets of glass at will.

Pretty soon, we'll see the usual suspects here, ginning up hatred for Rand Paul. Claiming to be 'purist conservatives', and how Rand Paul did this or that, and so he's a bushnazi.

You see. They know how to stop us from coalescing around a candidate. They've done it every election.

Or he'll be a RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jesse Jackson will lead a march, 'trusted anchors' will tut and look disapprovingly. People will say "there's no smoke without fire". "I don't know why, but I just don't trust that man."

Thanks to the Republican Party, we are where we are today. Consultants, politicians and former politicians continue to do well, though. Hell with the average working American. Thanks for nothing, Bill Kristol! You are exactly what is wrong with the party. And you are not even funny.

Media Mossbacks comprise the FNS lineup. Stale, boring, and wrong. Time for Mike Wallace’s zygote and the entire cast to go.

I’ve discovered Netflix on my BluRay. First House of Cards (Extraordinary!) and now making my way through Psyche - which I love.

I too got sick of it all after the election - I felt like we were all played for profit. I think Newsbusters cares more about what Chris Matthews says than the handful of viewers at MSNBC.

Republican Senator Rand Paul has drawn an indelible line in the sand for all to choose which side to stand on the Limits of Presidential Power.

Kristol has chosen, by his words, to do what all good Royalists have always done: showcase their unwavering public support of THEIR KING.

20 % of our forefathers were Royalists in our Revolutionary War.

Royalists were loyal to the King of England, and firmly believed in the credo: “ My King, right or wrong.”

Bill Kristol would have been content as a Royalist from start to finish of our Revolutionary War.

Kings easily become tyrants with increased power.

It seems that the more mentally unbalanced the tyrant, the more tyrannical he becomes.

I seriously doubt that true-blue Royalists such as Kristol, can ever reach a limit to their tolerance of what their King would ever chose to do.

Kristol chose to never, ever doubt that his King Obama is now, or ever could become a tyrant.

Royalists, especially those in the Media, such as Editor Kristol, do not understand what Constitutional Checks and Balances are meant to do.

I seriously doubt that Kristol ever will understand Constitutional Checks and Balances.

Kristol had done the GOP a great favor by starkly showing that the Royalists in the GOP are really Tyrant B. Hussein Obama’s best friends.

Let the long-awaited purge of the GOP Elite Royalists begin !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
