(Mitt and Obama: They're the same poison, just a different potency)
Its very simple. Exercise restraint in most cases and take decisive action when called for.

Sounds like the same place Ronald Reagan occupied.
That certainly meets with my approval.

Advice to Ted: Avoid any references to McCain. They can only hurt you.

I am in a different dimension from either McCain or Paul.
Those two space cadets live in their own little worlds. Okay three space cadets if you count both Pauls.

(Heck? Geewhiz Cripes, thats the place where people who don't believe in Gosh think they aint going.)
Ted should eschew any references to McQueeg and reword his statement to say he’s for a muscular, yet tempered foreign policy.

(Obama is so far in over his head, even his ears are beneath the water level.)
There are three principles that should guide U.S. foreign policy, Cruz said:
Number one, we should focus directly on protecting U.S. national security and the interests of the United States of America.
Number two, we should speak with moral clarity.
And number three, we should always fight to win.
I can’t argue with these 3 points. How difficult is it for other pols to voice these simple truths?!

The headline is a little misleading. Washington Compost trying to stir up trouble in the ranks? Nah.

(No wars for Arab pipelines!)
The time to intervene against Iran was during the last term of GWB. Now that window has closed. By acting against Syria the way we have, Russian and Iranian ties are now stronger then ever. An attack on Iran would be an attack on Russia now. So says the pact they have signed.
So Cruz is sitting on the fence between war and peace.
No wonder senators (and representatives) make poor executives. They don’t like to be put in the position of having to make decisions. Their lives are easier when they can vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or ‘present’ or just stay home for that vote and receive a ‘not present’.

Once again, Ted Cruz gets it exactly right.

That is a very broad area.
Way too vague an answer, lol.

Ted, word of advice, stay far, far away from McIdiot. Don’t have your name associated with him in an form or fashion.

Cruz might be in between McCain and Rand Paul on foreign policy. It's hard not to be. We really don't know where he's at on it until we see how he reacts to situations as they arise. He made me a little nervous in that ABC interview, when he seemed to accept that Assad was the one who used chemical weapons. On the plus side, he came out against Obama's Syria fiasco.
There's nothing in Cruz's background that would suggest that he's ready to develop his vision yet. He needs more study and experience.

(People who do not study history are destine to believe really ignorant statements.)
I could live with that kind of policy. I’d like Rand’s simply because of the dire straits we are in after a decade of disaster, but Cruz would do in a pinch.
