(Mitt and Obama: They're the same poison, just a different potency)
I agree with Rand Paul that we should not intervene militarily in Syria, because its not in defense of our U.S. national security interests, said Cruz during a question-and-answer session following a speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.
But, Cruz added, he also agrees with John McCain that if Iran is on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons that we should intervene militarily to prevent it from acquiring those weapons. Why? Because it is in the vital national security interest of the United States.
And that is reasonable....

(Now there ARE 1,000,000 regrets - but it may be too late.)
Mistake to even mention McCain.

While I am confidently assured that Senator Cruz’s interpretation of the headline remark makes sense, I find it disturbing that he mentions this in-between thing.
I can perfectly understand him relating he is somewhere south of Rand Paul - understandable. However, even the remote connection with McCain, even to say later that he is nowhere near him in sentiments gives me a pang in the pit of my stomach.
The fact is that McCain is as crazy and mad as a shithouse rat and any mention in connection to his ‘ideals’ ‘actions’ or whatever is a wasted exercise in sanity. McCain doesn’t even deserve mention in the context of positions, potential platforms or ideals for that matter. That man is completely insane in my opinion.
That said, it doesn’t diminish my opinion for Ted, but I sure as hell wish he wouldn’t mention McCain any more.
